Mommy Darling....

Mommy Darling....

3 mins 246 3 mins 246

Today I had stopped near the ATM machine to withdraw some cash, on my way back home from the office. I had to wait almost 15 minutes for my turn to come. No, no, don't think that there was a long queue!! A single boy was inside the cubicle, taking all that time to withdraw some money and I was the only person waiting outside.


I thought impatiently," What's he trying to do there? Operating an ATM machine or trying to learn how to become a rocket scientist!!", as my craving for some tea went on increasing.


When the boy did come out of the cubicle, he was fuming with anger and frustration and uttered," Don't use this good for nothing machine, ma'am!!" I asked," Is it out of order?"


He answered," No!! Money can be withdrawn, but the receipt of the transaction details isn't coming out however hard I've tried...Now my mom will give me an earful if I don't produce the receipt to her and she will accuse me of swindling money from her account!!"


It seemed amusing to me and I assured him with a chuckle," I don't have any mommy problem like you, because I earn myself and use my own card."


Then I began analyzing," Mommy problem??"No!! Not at all!!! Mommy is the greatest bliss God has bestowed upon us and our guardian angel on earth. But why did I use the word 'problem', I asked myself. Then I remembered an incident that had happened two days back.


Along with all the difficulties faced during these corona times, my highly educated, Ph.D. guide supermom can't learn to handle anything digital, because she starts with a negative attitude that these devices are new for her and she doesn't want to concentrate and learn.


I'm losing my patience along with the extending lockdown, job pressure, the maid not coming, all family members suffering something or other and my teenager not wanting to touch her books and wanting to spend all her time either dancing or being submerged in the digital world and my sweet, easygoing girl getting more and more reactive day by day.


Under such pressure, I broke down into uncontrollable sobs two days back while I was talking to my mother. And the irony of the situation lies in the fact that she felt offended by my crying and stopped calling me for two whole days!! Now tell me, it's a mommy problem or not??


Then one day I overheard my teenager complaining to her dad," Mama is hovering around my head like a helicopter!! She's got herself included in all my chatting groups and is guarding my conversations and checking my browsing history!!! I'm losing my head by not being able to go out at all. I'm missing my friends and mommy can't stop badgering me about my studies!!", while I had always considered myself as an understanding, friendly mom!!!


And thus continues the overloving, overprotective, oversensitive, over everything mommy problem generation after generation.
