As I start speaking, the call from the potty comes “Mama! I’m done!”
The pressure cooker then whistles and wakes up the sleeping baby.
While this is my average day, I am not complaining. Seriously. Alhamdulillah for all these blessings — kids, provision, shelter and so much more. But I know that I, and all stay-at-home mummies like me, feel stressed out at times. So, let’s tackle it together.
People often tend to view “Homemaking” as a list of chores like cleaning, washing and cooking of course.
This concept needs to be rebuilt.
Homemaking is all about making a HOME.
All these chores are physical in nature, but we need to first touch the emotional side of it.
Bringing up bright and pious children into the world, providing and fostering all needs of your man and still maintaining a peaceful and happy home … all this is indeed a big deal.
So, I am presenting a few ideas which might help you and me run a household smoothly.
Happiness comes from within. If we cannot be happy within our own homes and with our own families, chances are very few of us will be happy elsewhere.
May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) make it easy for every Muslimah Mama. Ameen!
