Deep down I hadn’t really believed I would be a mother one day. Of course, I dreamt of being a mother. When I got to know that there was a tiny bundle of cells that was going to change my life forever, I felt ecstatic! Expecting a baby was an amazingly exciting thought.
And when the baby was born after nine wonderful months, oh my goodness! I became very sentimental. The first few days with my son was very emotional time. Also, there was a total exhaustion as a result of labour and absolutely sleepless nights changing diapers et al.
I started working when my baby was barely 8 months old. My mother used to take care of the baby. But she started developing joints pain due to which managing the kid was becoming difficult. That was when I decided to leave my job.
Now, I have taken up motherhood as a full time job. It’s fun, its great spending time with the little one, god’s very special gift. Everyday he does something different and every moment I enjoy being with him. My daily routine revolves around him, feeding, playing, going for a walk and putting him to sleep. It’s only now that I appreciate my mother better than the past.
Childhood comes only once in a lifetime and every mother wants to give the best to her little one. Because only a mother can understand and nurture the baby better than anyone else.
A mother is somebody who is irreplaceable by anyone else. I feel proud of being a mother and wish a ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ to all you mothers out there.
Let’s make our mothers happy by thanking her for all that she has done. As a Jewish proverb says, God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
