2. Loves heading all the duties

Other super moms term AJo as a GI mom and a neurotic mother. AJo has the responsibility of 2 kids and keeps herself involved in her kids’ life. She keeps a check on her daughter’s life and checks her phone. She balances her responsibilities in the house as well as in the school. She is shown as the go-to person for any problem as without her permission nothing can happen. AJo dominates the activities of the school more than the principal.

In the GI school also, AJo has set new healthy rules for the kids and tells their parents to not give them oily food and instead opt for oats, fruits, vegetables.
