They say I am a “super” mom because I have a full time job, a lot of raket (sidelines), I don’t have a nanny or helper which means I do the laundry and such, and I tutor my kids (esp. my son who’s already a preschooler)…I basically look after the needs of every family member… but I AM NOT a “super” mom.
Why did I say so?
It is because I believe that to be a “super” mom, you should be good in organizing things. And if you’re good at it, everything will follow smoothly.
I wanted to become one. I tried. Several times. However, I failed…several times. I don’t know. As much as I wanted to be as organized as possible, it only happens at the beginning. I mean I can only be organized up to 2 days or at a maximum of one week. Afterwards, everything is a mess again. With mess, I mean from the cabinets of the whole family, rooms, utility bills, etc. are in CHAOS.
My whole life, since I was a baby until college, we have a nanny or a helper at home who does everything for us. EVERYTHING. I’ve been so used to and dependent that someone will keep my things for me, do things for me. And now that I have a family of my own (without a helper), I have a really hard time adjusting.
Earlier, after I finished ironing my son’s school uniforms for the whole week, I decided to prepare his record card for the payment of his tuition fee for the month of July. And yeah, your guess is right, I am not able to locate where his student’s record card is. I searched for it in all my bags and drawers at home. Perspiration was my mate for an hour as I looked for it.
I gave up.
I know I have placed it somewhere nicely after the enrollment, but how could I lost it?! What a shame?! I cannot just blame it on me being forgetful. I know it’s because of me being unorganized. And it saddens me big time because I should be the most organized person in the house being the mother. It’s depressing.
I know it could be simple to most of you, but I would admit it’s a challenge for me. I wanted to improve…even one step at a time, until I master it. I know it’s not yet too late for me, but the most important thing is my desire to change… to change for the better. So, my virtue for this month is ORDERLINESS and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for it.
But for now…
I have to park my lappy and try to figure out where I have kept that record card.
Got any tips for me? Write your comments below. TIA!
