Mom's the word and the world
Inspired, yes.... but committed to it, not sure. With some of friends reviving their blogs and some starting new ones, here I am, trying to join in. But for how long and how frequently...only Ayush knows. Ayush, by the way, is my 6-month-old son who thinks sleeping during the day is a sin and being calm and peaceful is a shame to his manhood! Motherhood seems to be the flavour of the season. I have at least 5 friends who have stepped into mommy-world in the past 6-7 months. 2008 sure was a fertile year. Now our conversations revolve around nappy changing, food habits, sleep routines (or lack of it) and of course the 'colic time'. But just admit I am quite impressed with myself....I am quite a good mom so far. There was this friend of mine who told me: "Sree, just go ahead wt baby making, trust me it isn't that bad and it doesn't change your life at all." Wonder what she was talking about. I can barely remember how life was before Ayush came along. Well, my routine now is set.... feed, burp, change nappy, play, bathe him, feed, change nappy, burp, clean the pee, poop and puke..., try to put him to sleep, fail, return to play mode, finally knock on neighbours' door and hand ayush over.....and then again the routine goes on...... I do lose my cool at times, but guilt soon takes over. One toothless smile from that naughty face and I know he's a love I can't give up. Love you babydoll.... And I've begun to be more considerate and loving towards my mom too. You don't really know it, till you get there. o that I am here, I respect, love and adore her for tolerating my tantrums and loving me so deeply. Love you amma....though I've never told you that enough.
