My of fact, an act of bravery that we

My wife is a stay-at-home mom as of
now. We conceived when it was the peak time for her to be working and
fulfilling her ambitions. But she decided to give her career aspirations a rest
to start a family and bring this tiny human being to life which has become our
whole world. But at the time, none of us had the slightest idea what we were
signing up for. Even one year after delivering she has had to put her dreams on
hold to tend to this little life that we’ve created. Not that she is
complaining or she isn’t proud of her new role as a stay-at-home mother, trust
me we both truly are and I would have been equally proud had she been working,
but we also can’t deny the fact that she did have to make sacrifices and change
her priorities to take up this new role. Not me, but her. And then, on the
other hand, there are also mothers who choose or have to work feeling guilty
for having to leave their babies behind. It’s very difficult to choose one over
the other, knowing that between the two there’s no such thing called a perfect
choice, or even a good or a bad choice for that matter. And though neither of
the decisions comes easy and both the decisions demand immense courage,
strength, sacrifice and bravery, it should be welcomed wholeheartedly and
appropriately lauded. Did you just read bravery? Oh yes, you read it right. It
is, as a matter of fact, an act of bravery that we must give due credit to.

So I feel it’s very shameful for us
to even have this constant debate and categorize motherhood into stay-at-home
moms and working moms. It’s rather pitiful how some of us look down at
stay-at-home moms and secretly diss on them, at the same time judge working
moms for being heartless and make them feel guilty for leaving their babies
behind. We should understand that there’s more to motherhood than what meets
the eye. Motherhood is one true empowering spirit in itself and it doesn’t
really matter if she’s a stay-at-home mom or a working one. It’s the feeling,
emotions and sentiments with which she enjoys motherhood and which makes her
happy is what really matters in the true sense. Because after all she’s the
centre of everything, she’s the axis on which our lives revolve, men’s as well
as the kids’. In my words, “Children might be the heart of the family,
Dads might be the body, but Moms are definitely the soul of the family.”
So let’s not put them in any category, rather just celebrate them for the
beautiful souls that they are.
