Basket of Joys: Motherhood
Motherhood is one beautiful basket that is jam-packed with joys that a lady can never experience till she becomes a Mom herself. I have tried to outline this basket of joys: motherhood by penning down a few of those feelings and experiences that I came across during this 2.6 year old motherhood of mine…
Motherhood is all about the joy of:
- feeling your baby kick inside your tummy knowing that you are the only privileged one who can feel this.
- hearing your newborn cry, the moment he comes into this world.
- holding her in your arms right in the labor room.
- breastfeeding your newborn and feeling butterflies in your stomach as she sucks onto your nipples
- getting up a zillion times in the middle of the night just to check if he’s breathing and then lovingly caress his forehead feeling amazed at your own creation.
- feeling great when your baby continues to cry when in someone else’s arms and stops crying the moment she comes to you.
- having given your parents the pleasure of becoming grandparents.
- sporting stretch marks on your tummy and not feeling bad but proud about it.
- having given birth to a cute and divine baby.
- generating that extra ounce of energy to get through every tantrum of your little one.
- being the one that your child wants to hug onto as soon as he gets up in the morning.
- stepping out to buy you a dress and end up buying your child’s clothes instead.
- saving that last bite of the cake because it’s your child’s favorite.
- being after your kid all the time to feed her veggies.
- experiencing the feeling of thinking sub-consciously about your child all the time
- scolding your child knowing on the inside that it’s good for her.
- burning the midnight oil when your child falls ill.
- pretending to your child that you are not afraid of cockroaches and lizards, just so that she doesn’t develop a fear against them.
- feeling like an expert parent when it comes to your own child
- taking 1,856 pictures of your kid in a day and still not feeling satisfied
- knowing that you are irreplaceable
- realizing and finally admitting that your mom was always right!
- experiencing the true meaning of unconditional love
- understanding what your child does not say
- being a Super Mom!
