Yesterday Sunday, my day off (blog and home) I had the pleasure of watching a movie that is literally my face! It’s called “ Mama, Operation Ballad” . This film tells the story of a mom of three who sees on her blog an outlet for her feelings.
A blogger full of love for what she does and sometimes without much courage to expose her feelings. She has a husband who works hard and then finds herself alone with her children for days and especially on Mother’s Day.
The problem is when she feels tired and stressed by the life she leads, just looking after her children’s home and being a blogger. Sometimes the routine consumes her and she misses using a beautiful shoe that she hasn’t used in several years because of always being with her children .
The fact is that as the main character, I also have those moments. As a full-time mom and blogger, I feel in a vicious circle where the routine and children dominate, sometimes I feel on the verge of an outbreak ! The work that three children do is worthy of a mini TV series, tranquility even when they are at school because even with them there the worry about how well they are still going on and the rush to prepare everything for when they get even more!
In the film the character decides to take a Saturday off, freedom from that routine that holds her for 10 years. She joins three friends to perform this night for moms and several confusions happen.
The funniest part of the film is seeing the despair of the two parents when they find themselves alone with 5 children, this time the blogger and mother are so missed that they decide to get together and ask for help from a very crazy childhood friend. The confusions start as soon as they leave the house and decide to leave their cell phones in the car so as not to have the night of freedom interfered by the call of their husbands and children.
Reality x Fiction by a blogging mother
The fact is that not every mother is a blogger, but she can go through these moments of dilemma in life that is very common in the lives of so many women … I imagine that you work outside the home and when you get home you have even more work than in your own job. Tidy up here, cook there, bathe the kids etc etc.
At the end of the long day one is tired psychologically and physically, but this is no different for a mom who works at home or “just” takes care of the house and children. The work is the same! Only those who have children know what I’m talking about, the burden of responsibility falls terribly on a woman’s shoulders.
The maternal world is excellent but of course, it has its price. How long have you been out on a night out with your friends or taking time out for yourself without thinking about the kids? Admit it! I know that I am not the only one and certainly this feeling is not exclusive to me. There are other women who are anxiously waiting for the end of the holidays!
Rs not that the company of the children is not good, but a quiet house is sometimes very good for the mind. So, dear friend, mom, taking time for us heads of the family is essential. As they say in the film itself, first putting the oxygen mask on ourselves in a turbulent plane ensures that you can save the rest of the people. It is just like that, we must be well with ourselves , enjoy the life we lead and for that time exclusively.
A walk with friends, a cinema alone, the gym, an hour of bath or beauty salon to rest a mind overloaded with day to day worries and with children. I loved the idea of having the blogger’s husband take care of the children while the mother takes a break. We have the bad idea of not wanting to delegate care to children, asking for help is not a sign of weakness, on the contrary! Asking for help is simply taking care of mental and physical health.
A good walk with friends can work miracles and change the mindset of someone who is tired of the daily routine. Loving children is taking time too, yes, living for them, but learning that taking time for yourself is more than a proof of love too. A day off can work miracles in patience and the way we take care of everything and everyone.
Disconnect from the routine and the notebook does well! So, how about a night out with mommy friends and relaxing watching this cool movie? Cinema session for moms already entitled to lots of laughs, popcorn and a very cold soda!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
