Letters to a Pakistani Mother

Dear Mom. You just had a baby; the creature living inside you is finally out.  Hello sleepless nights.

Dear Mom. Stop trying to control everything. Let your mother in law take some responsibility too.

Dear Mom. No. Your husband is not a baichara. He should help around the house. Tell him to do his own laundry.

Dear Mom. Don’t you dare let your husband sleep through the night. He needs to also take care of the night feeds.

Dear Mom. Not everything your mother and your mother in law say is wrong. Hear them out.

Dear Mom. Tell your friends you need them. Don’t wait for them to call you.

Dear Mom. Don’t feel guilty if you leave your child for couple of hours either with your mom or your mother in law. They are in good hands.
