She’s got OCD – it keeps her safe. The world will end if the tendli is cut round, not straight. OCD – it gives her control, There’s so many rules – no one could take over her role.
If there’s too much to clean, just throw it all out. When you have cabin fever, just get out of the house! Cook simple and easy everyday, You can go out for something different once in a way.
Stand up and fight for what is right, With words imperfect, but a heart that’s alright. Be the flame that sheds light – alive and strong, When society wants a display of money, or when you see something wrong.
Do you ever, Leave your house without your phone, Call up somebody who lives alone? Feel grateful for the friend who was there through the sad, Let your maid have a day off when her back is bad?
Do you want children so quick, or is it the pressure?
From family and friends who really should know better.
Who should let you do things at your own pace,
Take a little time so you have more savings and space.
Men-Oh-Pause, give your wives a break,
Don’t get up and leave them to wash up the plates.

Cooking and washing and keeping the home clean.

For the sins of their husbands mother,
On that seventh day?
The mother who did what she thought was right,
Who never took a break.
Who was an obedient daughter-in-law, who accepted without a fight.
For God’s sake don’t argue, just spend!
Don’t drive your family round the bend.
Take a rickshaw or take a cab.
Is the saving worth driving your children mad?
I want to do for you as you did for your mother,
But we both want to do it our way.
With love and respect for each other,
And space where we both have our say.

Some of my women friends are stuck. They’re amazing cooks & they were just so good at it, that other family members stopped taking turns with cooking. They loved cooking & took pains to cater to differing tastes, by cooking a wide variety of dishes at every meal.
“Just have a baby, put your child in a creche, and continue with what you were doing before you had a baby. That’s what I did…” That’s what a friend said to me in an effort to pressure me into having a baby! I just stared at her in total shock. I could see howContinue reading ““Children don’t need time””
