8 Everyday things that are actually a luxury for Moms!

Parenting is a day-in-day-out contest for survival… every day brings in new challenges and changes your life in ways you never imagined. We, as a Mom, tend to take things for granted, only to respect them as luxuries in the time to come. Talking about those little-big things today, read on to know about things I took for granted but they seem like big benefits now!!!

  1. To get a chance to use a recently cleaned toilet

Before you laugh, consider a morning when you wake up and no matter the magnanimous pressure you are in, you have to offer the seat to your toddler first, who ensures that his body, the seat and his clothes are all soiled. You hurriedly clean all of that and ‘let go’.

All of that vis-a-vis a recently cleaned pot seat, squeaking clean, available at your ‘disposal’. It’s a luxury!!

2. Discovering a big fat box of chocolates you hid for a special day

Well, honestly I do sneak out some chocolates and snack on them at 3:30 AM, but discovering a big box of chocolates that you hid for a special day, is just PRICELESS!!

3. Getting to cut the cake and eat it too – literally!!

Be it your anniversary or your birthday, somehow, the toddler is the first one to get to eat the cake. Just in case someone does consider to let you cut the cake and feeds you the first bite, it’s just heavenly!

4. Getting your favorite brew on an exhausted day

Nothing beats a warm dose of your favorite cuppa on a day when things have taken the best of you… Getting your beverage made exactly like you prefer it, while you rest on the couch reading your favorite book- is eternal bliss!Being told u look amazing in an everyday dress, without being asked about.

5. Getting a compliment

It may seem like no biggie – but being told that you look amazing in an everyday dress can effortlessly take your happiness to a different level. After all who does not like compliments?!

6. Still being able to do you signature dance step
To still be able to do that dance step you mastered decades and a ton of weight ago is a luxury in its own sense… if you love to dance, you know what I mean!

…and you can’t recall what day or dimension it is!

8. Going to a ‘drink-all-you-can’ party and having someone to take care of the little ones at home

Under-rate-this-not… but this luxury is one hell of a thing! Several drinks down, when you get back home and totally want to crash on the bed like there’s no tomorrow, while the kids are taken care of – is just heaven! Be prepared with hangover remedies though 😉

  1. Haha this is too funny! As a Dad, I know what you mean too. I always take the first shift in the mornings so my wife can sleep in until I have to go to work. I’d love to either not have to wake up at 6am, or not have to rush to shower/ shave and get dressed before my baby wakes up.

    It would be even more amazing to have someone prepare breakfast for me so I don’t rush a cup of coffee to stop my appetite burning a hole through my stomach after forgetting to feed myself at the same time as giving baby hers.

    1. Lol, I know where you’re coming from… The only thing I wanted to communicate through this blog is that things we ta ke for granted become luxuries one day after u become a parent 🙂

  2. No. 2 and 7 really. I feel you. With two kids around life is always a roller coaster!

  3. This is so true. I haven’t done many of these in a long time. I think coffee is my only everyday occurrence. Wonderful article. Made me laugh. I hope you’re having a fantastic day.

  4. Nice article! love all the GIFs that you have used. I can really relate this article with my wife’s daily routine. We have 2 years old daughter, who always wakes up early morning on sundays, the only day when we can relax .. 🙂 I totally agree with you, a little contribution from the one can really ease off the pressure from other. Gonna follow some tips of your’s . Thanks again!

  5. hehehehe…. this was so relatable and fun read. Gosh, that “Drink all you can parties” and “eating the cake part’ is the story of my life :p

  6. This is too good! As a new mom I haven’t experienced my son beating me to the bathroom yet, he’s only eight months old, but getting a good nights sleep is a dream. I’ve had three nights now (at different times) where my in-laws watched our son so my husband and I could have a date night. I definitely cherish those evenings with some peace and quiet and no baby all over me.

  7. These are definitely a luxury when you are a parent. It’s the small things that you can’t take for granted

  8. What a wonderful posts Prisha. Loved the gif images and literally I had a smile pasted on my face all the way while I was reading this. Couldn’t agree more with what you have said. These luxuries of life..

  9. Oh I am already in love with you!!! What an amazing post… each and every point is resonating the exact life of every mom.
    I have been craving for girls out, drink till you drop, cake cutting, chocolate munching… phew.. amazing post.

  10. Ha ha…So true! I don’t even remember the last time I got to cut a cake.
