Being a SAHM – Using all my senses with a filmy twist

Disclaimer – This isn’t an educational post. All experiences mentioned are real life and any resemblance to any one else’s experience has my deepest sympathy..

When I decided to be a homemaker and a Stay at Home Mom, I had absolutely no clue what I was getting into. There are so many incidents that sometimes make me second guess my decision. But there are many more reasons that prove I took the right step.

While there are many posts that tell you all the happy and sad stories of being home with kids, I want to bring forth some crazy experiences I have with my daughters.

I learnt in school about human senses and experienced them every day. But motherhood completely changed that definition for me.

Let me explain further –


Who doesn’t love their house neat and tidy?? I will tell you who. Those tiny humans you created, they detest the idea of a clean house. They even detest the idea of being clean themselves. So my eyes get the pleasure of seeing my kids transform from Rahul Raichand in K3G to Maxy in Josh, all within a few minutes sometimes…


I have read this meme doing rounds that “silence is golden, unless you have kids.. In which case, it’s very, very suspicious”

Truer words have not been spoken before. With 2 super active and energetic girls in the house, there’s never a dull moment.. They behave like Rahul in Dil To Pagal Hai most hours of the day. Try and stop them and you will see Romi Singh from trimurti, but if they are caught doing something wrong they turn into Shankar from Koyla.


Chanel, CK, Burberry – all these are outdated fragrances. These days we are into poop and spilled milk. They are very budget friendly and long lasting. My offsprings spill the milk and when scolded, they act innocent like Sundar Srivastava in Chamatkar which is when I become Rahul Mehra from Darr.


Every object is like the Filmfare Trophy. They want them all. They are like Raj in DDLJ grabbing all of those in sight and then I have to remind them that they are behaving like Raj in Badshah simply stealing stuff that doesn’t belong to them.


Some kids love vegetables, some kids love sweets, some kids love junk food. Guess what my kids love – erasers, wall paint and many other things that don’t belong in the mouth. Just like Anil in King Uncle & Gaurav in Fan, they just don’t understand the concept of choosing wisely.

That’s how I see and thoroughly enjoy the ups and downs that come with spending majority of my time with my monkeys.

Let me know in the comments if you go through/have gone through anything similar.

  1. Agree with you. We get extra senses too due to parenting. Infants try to keep everything in their mouth which is colorful and not edible.
