Mums reveal what makes them cry

July 17, 2018
Parenting

The last time I cried was when I heard an emotional tune on radio; prior to that, when I was hangry (hungry myself, angry at her), the week before, when the dog was hurt. We all feel sad, overwhelmed, scared and frustrated at times. And if you feel like that today, it’s ok to cry. Crying doesn’t make you a bad mom, God no. If at all, it makes you normal.

”Last time I cried were tears of sadness as we had to have our son circumcised, and I couldn’t stop his tears during the procedure.” – Maya Itani-Abu Hassan, Marketing Consultant & mother of two.

“Just yesterday, at my 7 year-olds end-of-year school function. Seeing her all grown up made me so emotional that I could not stop the tears!” – Safeenaz Soobraty, Accountant & mother of two.

“I wanted to buy her something and couldn’t, due to my financial limitations as a SAHM. Hence, I cried. ” Deepa Jaisingh, mother of one.

“Last week I travelled solo to see my mum after a major surgery. It suddenly struck me how far off they were, and that I couldn’t see them when they needed me the most. ” Latika Chawla, Business Owner & mother of two.

“The last time I cried was out of frustration and guilt. My boy was unwell, wasn’t willing to take his meds or eat anything from the multiple dishes I made for him the whole day. He was irritated, I was tired and finally broke down at bed time. ” Kinshoo Ravi Agrawal, SAHM to one.

“It’s funny, I cried as I walked into a Walima with my 3 boys hanging on to me; unfortunately, with no help and limited data on my phone. Had I downloaded a cartoon, the kids would have let me enjoy my Biryani! ” Mafaza Haleem, Blogger & mother of three.

“My grandson, he breaks my heart with so many little things. ” – Mita Srinivasan, Communications Specialist and a loving grandma.

Sometimes they stem from happiness, sometimes from helplessness. Whatever said and done, the tears won’t stop. Since becoming a mom, that is. The good news though, is that I’m not alone. You’re not alone.
