I have been tagged,by the lovely Dipali and the newest mommy(I know of),Aneela to write about Five Things I love about being a Mom. I have so many unpicked tags in my bucket,so,this time,I am just going to complete this one,before it gets lost.
Here are the rules-
just write a post of your own (5 things that you love about being a mom) and find someone to link to and tag – someone from your own country, if you like, but definitely someone from another country (Google is a good resource if you don’t know any; google any country name and ‘mom’ in their blog search function) (be sure to let them know that you’ve tagged them!) – and link back here and HBM and leave a comment.
I don’t know where to begin.I have wanted to be a mom,for as long as I can remember..And there is very little that I don’t like about motherhood.Seriously,even the sleepless nights of the first year,were alright..not something I looked forward to,but it wasn’t unmanageable.As the heaps of unfolded laundry rose,my love for the baby grew too.And every time,I look at Aadya,I wonder if its possible to love anyone so much.I also wonder sometimes,if I will have any love left for a second baby..but then,I think its the mother’s heart,which will always have love for her children.There are so many things that I like ,listing just 5 is not enough.But I’ll try 🙂
Here are my 5-
1) The excited baby voice that fills my house and my heart from the moment aadya wakes up every morning..Her non-stop talking continues even when I am on the phone ,or even when I don’t answer her.I love the long never-ending stories,told in the same baby voice, that keep me up at night.I love those sweet Pleez and Shorie(please&sorry)
2) The warm body snuggled up close to me or the small fingers that pry my eyes open.I just love waking up next to the little Pipette,one little hand around my neck,one chubby leg slung over my waist and one beautiful face,nose-to-nose with me.And on the rare occasions that,she wakes up earlier than me,she plays with my face and my hair and I pretend to be sleeping till she pries my eyes open with her little baby fingers.And then we snuggle and cuddle some more.Ever since Aadya was born,the first few minutes after she wakes up are reserved for me.Its like our way of recharging,before starting the day.
3)Those beautiful brown eyes,so like melted milk chocolate,so like my own,but so much more beautiful.And I could just keep looking in to those eyes forever and ever and I know,they look right into me..into my heart and soul.
4) Love having the magical power to kiss away every boo..Even the ones she dreamt about.Every morning when aadya wakes she shows me her little “boo”,real and imaginary,till I haven’t kissed all the 10 fingers and her cheeks and the nose,cute as a button.
5)Being perfect in every sense of the word,for someone.Being loved by that someone,completely and unconditionally .And I think just knowing that empowers me,makes me feel special and makes me a stronger person.It gives me the strength to stand up for myself,for,only when I stand up for myself,can I stand up for the Wee one.
Writing this post has made my belief even stronger that I was meant to be a mom..Oh I so love being a mom..:) Thanks,Dipali and Aneela.
