In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “On the Edge.”We all have things we need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?
If you are a Stay-at-Home Mom in a city of ‘working couples’ then it’s a big, BIG problem. You are considered abnormal, incompetent or simply lazy. You are an eyesore.
At a party
Before these prodding questions force me to doubt my decision or bury me in guilt, I rush back home and head straight to my laptop.
They take me to the awesome world of delicious cakes, pies, mouth watering biryanis and kormas.
It’s relaxing and rejuvenating.
Energized and full of smile, I head to the kitchen. Chop, grind, mix and stir. Self doubt out, my shaky self confidence gets a boost.
So dear friends, well wishers, neighbours, please stop worrying about my Stay-at-Home/ Not-working status. If you are still uncomfortable, watch Stephanie and Sanjay bake/cook incredible cakes and mouth watering dishes. Maybe it will help you keep an even keel too!!
