Watch what you Eat


Ah Yes....I AM A MOM!!! That makes me an alarm clock, cook, maid, waitress, teacher, nurse, handyman, security officer, photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner, personal assistant, ATM, & I scare away the boogie man. I don't get Holidays, Sick pay or Days off!! I work through the DAY & NIGHT!!! I am on call 24/7 for the rest of my life. And that's just my First JOB.....Being A MOM!!!!

One of my friend has posted this as her FB status. At once, I was reminded of my Mum and I began wondering ‘OMG, how could she do all this with a smile all the time for me!” This is such a daunting task! 

I was also reminded of the working mothers in my organization, who juggle work and home with such great ease. Talking to such working mothers, makes me realize that they are the pillars of their homes. (The housewives are no less, though!) 

So today I’ll write for such women who are always juggling between their homes and work/business/household chores.  

Being the pillar of your home means you must support your spouse, kids, in laws and parents all at the same time, and manage your maids and work too. 

And doing so much in 24 hours and non-stop means you get little time to take care of your skin, hair and overall health. Right? However, there’s some solution still. 

Follow the simple and quick tips below, to look like a yummy mummy and wife like Lara Dutta, Juhi Chawla and Sridevi etc.
