It’s a tale of a mum who is in lockdown with her ‘Lakhtejigars’
Morning haste and breakfast rush.
It’s so hard to wake them and make them brush.
‘What’s for breakfast’ is their favourite quote.
‘I hope it’s yummy’ is the requirement foremost.
Answer could make them smile or frown.
Whatever comes mum needs to fix her own crown.
Jaise Taise the day starts
Online classes begin
Teachers struggles to teach the muggles
Classroom chuckles and humour full house is replaced by computer and mouse.
“Oh!! How we miss not being with our friends ”, they complain.
I roll my eyes and sigh in disdain.
For they are not the only one missing
I spend most of my time cursing and hissing.
Screen time policing is a thing of past.
Staying Sane is what matters in the last.
Korean language is what I need to acquaint
“Watching with subtitles is just fine”, is what they state.
You don’t need to know the language to view.
These are facts I never knew.
‘Brooklyn 99’ cops have taken over my living room
Hello!! This is just about noon
Post lunch preaching I mean teaching begins.
I try to pull my reins
Day seems long when there is nothing to look forward to in the evening.
Is this the dawns of new beginning.
They being with me at home is such a blessing.
I can handle the situation with little bickering and pressing.
Daddy’s job is easy, for he is there to spoil.
Mums need to be a bad cop and are often caught up in turmoil.
We will sail through these COVID times
Hang on, all dear mommies with your sunshines.
For time flies, they will be gone their way.
We will be empty nesters looking at the memories we made.
Seeing at the transition I wonder
From retina spl to baker is something to ponder.
Being professional I made my story
Now it’s time to bask in motherhood glory.
In lockdown with teenager
Everyday is a game changer
