If there was ever a Jane of all trades, it would be only suitable for Twinkle Khanna. From being an author and mom of 2 with superstar husband Akshay Kumar, Twinkle has got a lot on her plate. So it's notable that the former actress and author is also working on getting her Masters degree. As noted in her recent Instagram Reel, Twinkle is on the verge of finishing her Master's degree in writing at Goldsmiths University. It's an unconventional choice for the entrepreneur whose almost turning 50 years old but it's been a fulfilling choice for Twinkle. In her caption, she writes, "What's it like going back to Uni on the cusp of my fiftieth year on this planet? Well, it's now been nine months of attending classes and questioning my sanity as I sprint along the last stretch of finishing my Masters. Who knew I would be willing to put myself through submissions, grades, and a thousand mugs of coffee as I try to focus through lectures? Sometimes I think I should have applied for a Masters in strange life choices instead of one in writing! But on the other hand, I would not have all these new experiences and even a uni gang, fabulous women I can count on to pull me through deadlines and make me laugh during lunch breaks. Tight skin, a flat tummy, endless energy—you can either count the things you have lost or see what you can gain. Getting old is a mathematical equation; I would rather consider it a multiplication sum than look at it as a subtraction. Agree? Disagree?"
In between her busy schedule, she manages to entertain her Instagram family with hilarious and witty posts. The recent one was all about motherhood. Mrs FunnyBones in an Instagram post listed down the “joys of motherhood” and many women are relating to it. From dragging children on exhausting trips, putting their happiness above yours to showing them the world, Twinkle said that mothers are far from perfect, but most of them try to do their best, even on their worst days. Some of the joys of motherhood mentioned by Twinkle Khanna included, “dragging them on exhausting trips, while secretly longing for a solo vacation. And, frantically chasing after them as they sprint towards another platform, like deranged marathon runners.”
It was followed by “instilling the love of reading in their little minds as well as splurging on treats for them, while suppressing the urge to snatch it away and devour it yourself.” “Pretending you are not irritated because you told them to use the bathroom when you left the hotel. And now they want you to find them a toilet in an open field,” she wrote. However, according to Twinkle Khanna “it doesn't matter what you do” because when they grow up, “they will go to therapy and end up blaming you.”
The author stated that all mothers can do is hope that the children realise that there are very few truly terrible mothers. Even the mother from Home Alone – who forgot about her child not once, but also in the sequel – was not evil, just overwhelmed, as per Twinkle Khanna. “Mothers are far from perfect, but most of us try to do our best, even on our worst days,” she concluded and asked fans whether they agree or not.
