Why I’m Giving up on Trying to Always Function as Fun Mother
I took my children to the children’s museum, but my concern was about the germs my kids will have contact with. I have seen the research that children’s museums lurk with a number of the unpleasant germs around, but as a stay-at-home mom, I cannot attest to that. So on this day, I was especially excited to be part of this adventure. Inside the significant museum amphitheater, a wrestling-themed anniversary party was occurring. As the door opened briefly to allow the next wave of people in, I snuck a peek inside.
I hardly throw this word around, but the party was wonderful. The whole, huge area was decorated to the hilt. There were wrestling rings put up, fake glittering straps hooked on the wall along with adults in Hulk Hogan costumes. There was even a vintage-looking “fighting game” artwork with the fortunate birthday boy’s face on it. It was very exciting and to any mother that would have witnessed such a wonderful birthday party would have appreciated the works of a fellow woman.
Am unable to organize her such kind of party, and here is why; I love to have fun, but that I also have pretty incapacitating social anxiety. Being in a multitude makes me uncomfortable. Her daddy, on the flip side, is someone who adulates such sort of thing. A theatre buff in high school, he controls any point and any area with regard to having fun. He’d host a magical unicorn soiree at any place in the world or such birthday parties with Hulk Hogan costumes in a split of a second.
While my nervousness is just a part of the problem, truth be told, there is another reason I am not capable of becoming the “enjoyable” mother. Am not well versed in arranging birthday parties with Hulk Hogan costumes or inside a museum. But honestly, I could throw an awesome birthday celebration our neighborhood has ever seen, and a similar one like the one I saw people wearing Hulk Hogan costumes. But the only hindrance is that I will be stuck with colossal expenses that can lead misappropriating my savings.
However, by freeing myself of this strain to throw a celebration that renders neighbors talking for months, I am redirecting that energy to someplace it is more convenient. I’m involving myself in motherhood full-force. I am giving them the affection, memoirs, and attention that they deserve at this stage in their own lives.
Her birthday is soon approaching and I am still undecided on what we’ll do. We might set up the showerhead in the backyard and allow her buddies splash themselves while enjoying the moment. Or we might organize a party like a museum one where kids can wear Hulk Hogan costumes to make it even more memorable.
