The current situation of coronavirus and staying indoors all the time might have worn you out, but there is one person that just isn’t ready to slow down. Constantly trying her best to take care of us, our mothers are busier than ever. Did you notice she’s still running around and fixing things?
Our moms became supermoms during Ramadan and singlehandedly take care of everything in her domain. Maybe it is time we join as sidekicks and help out as much as possible.
1. TIDY UP THE HOUSE
You can start by tidying up your room. Take care of the bed and change the bedsheet if you have to (if you haven’t already, it’s been over 45 days!). Unclutter your room and clean any furniture with dust wipes. Do the same with other rooms after. Hang washed clothes in the balcony, and organize your things for a cleaner look and feel. Once you have done uncluttering everything, you’ll breathe much better too.
2. TIME TO BRUSH UP ON COOKING SKILLS
Cooking can be really fun. So, why not make some delicious iftar you have recently seen on YouTube! Give Banglar Rannaghor a try for deshi meals, even if you have not tried cooking before. Observe your mom, the maestro at work, and help her out. You can start by making juices, cutting fruits and veggies, or even frying some piajus. Slow and steady though.
3. GIVE AN ARTSY TOUCH TO THE IFTAR TABLE
5 minutes before iftar is like a rush-hour during Ramadan. While the dishes are being cooked, you can organize the table and set everything up. God knows your parents need the extra hand. You can even try out different themes, organize all the dishes, and make it look beautiful.
4. MAKE THE DISHES SQUEAKY CLEAN
After sehri, we still have about 15-20 minutes left before the morning prayer begins. Everyone stays up at that time anyway, so why not try doing the dishes? That’s one more task done and dusted.
5. DO GROCERY SHOPPING WITH UTMOST CAUTION
It is not safe to go outside. But you may need to when you completely run out of food or necessary ingredients to cook. But before going out take all the necessary precautions and maintain social distancing. Even when you come back, wash everything properly. If you have people to shop for you, help out with finances, and discuss the best saving-schemes to stock up for the next month, prioritizing what everyone needs and does not need. For your expenses at the very least, don’t let others assume it.
No task is big or small and lending a hand is definitely a great start. Save time, save effort, and save money.
