Stressed out Super-Mom and the Fairy Godmother

The insane and maddening traffic,
Non-sense chatter over the FM... 
Non-stop deluge of emails…
Endless meetings… 
Mindless presentations …
Meaningless social networking … 
Die-hard liars … 
Desperate but illegitimate lovers … 
Suicidal co-worker … 
Senseless client calls … 
Soul stinking ass lickers … 
Sweat shops and slave drivers … 
And a Stressed out super mom …

There was only so much she could take during the course of a day at work.
Mentally exhausted, she decided to call it a day. 
Little did  she realize, all day she had left her mobile phone in the car.
18 missed calls from home. 
 
Her heart skipped a beat,  her blood pressure went on a roller coaster.
She was sweating and panting and tears rolled down her eyes .

How can I be so forgetful? My bad, I should not be so careless... 

She cursed herself as she dialled home to return the call.

 Her seven year old instantly answered the phone.
'Pchh...called you so many times…’ she said  with desperation in her voice.  

Sorry sweetheart … was busy in meetings… what happened ?
 
'Mmm... when you were busy in your meetings,

my first teeth that was  dancing all these days fell out. 
I called you and you did not answer.
So I went and buried it in the park under the gulmohar tree. '
 
'You think the Fairy Godmother will send me a gift ?  '  

'mmm... Have you been a good girl all day today ? 'she asked.

'Yes mamma' ... came the reply.

Relief  permeated her entire body as she took a long deep breath. 

'Then... She certainly will, my darling '… she said and then disconnected the phone.  

She smiled and pressed the flipkart app on her mobile, went into the wishlist and ordered the doll house … 


*************

Dedicated to all those stressed out super moms who ceaselessly try to achieve that delicate balance between their career and their family .  Ladies ... You rock... here's to you on Mother's day.
