Oh yes, it’s Mother’s Day and I am celebrating it like never before. To my darling daughter Athena, THANKYOU for making me a Mother and that too – mothering you <3
Today and every day in our momy tribe, we tend to hear many stories of sleepless nights to twinkling eyes to loudest cry to soothing smile. But here I am talking about my six months of being a MOM as a celebration of my existence. I am here, interviewing my own self of how being Mom to Athena has changed me or what are my feelings or how m I celebrating my first Mother’s Days as a Mother. So you lovely people out there, witness a conversation between my heart, soul and brain.
Q & A with my own self
How do you feel being a mom?
The best feeling ever. For me being a mother is about infinite love comes in a smallest bundle wrapped in a pink tender skin. It is God’s way of telling you how much HE loves you.
How being a mom has changed you?
I would not call it a change because I am the same person with a new and honorable title. Being a mother has given me an insight to unconditional love. Nop, I am not talking about my unconditional love for her but hers for me. the way her eyes follow me and her loudest scream to be near my heart is mesmerizing.
How about sleepless nights?
Well, honestly I have no clue what sleepless nights people talk about, I am not saying it’s not there but for me they are the best sleeps, I have had in a long time. I have slept enough for six years to enjoy these sleepless nights for sure. For an insomniac like me, Athena has put her cuddling touch to relief me from my nightmares of not sleeping and soothed me with her night smiles.
Do you get frustrated?
Umm, no why would I? She is my ultimate source of being in peace. The smallest twinkle in her eye has given me the strength to be my self and be at peace. I had made a promise to myself, never in my life I would complain of my child being fussy, because I am lucky that God have chosen me to have Momy Role in my life. It’s truly a blessing.
What about post-partum body?
I wear my scar as my pride. My stretch marks are my tiger stripes and my body weight well, it will shed with time. That shows I have given birth. I have bared a soul within my body for nine months. And that’s all I care about.
Don’t you think, this approach and stance would make people think you are faking it?
Who cares? Umm me NOT AT ALL. Because this is who I am genuinely, and these are my feelings. If I was not ready I would have not been a mother. And we take positive approach in every prospect of our lives and the only positive thing which I believe is being a Mom, why so much negativity? Why talk about cranky baby when we can talk about her soothing giggle? Why talk about tired mom when we can have the best sleeping partner? Not my style, not my thing 😛
But I appreciate those mother’s too who are daring enough to talk about their hard times, because they are not easy to come out with; as you never know who is judging you for what. It’s their story and I truly respect that. This is my story and I respect that too 😛
To all new mommies out there, you all are amazing and it’s ok if your baby cry that’s what they are suppose to do. Keep up the good work, because we are all SUPER MAMAS.
Much Much love and power to you all.
