1--With the birth of my children..I had 2 people in my life who were totally my own......its a very exhilarating feeling, cant be expressed in words, though today their property rights lie with their spouses:) but the bond I have with them is unique, none can change it.
2--I used to love it when my daughter used to favour me blindly in any argument, situation in the family.........ma is always right, sometimes to the extent that I used to ask her to keep quiet:), and then she wouldnt sleep till I tucked her in and said good night:). My daughter is my second one, and when I was expecting, my family wanted another son, but i fervently wished for a daughter and when she came my joy knew no bounds, and she was thoroughly pampered by everyone.and still she was called..mummy ki chamchi, mummy's pet:)
3--When I had children, I didnt have the assistance of Internet or books ( I read only Doctor Spock), so whenever somebody suggested something, I applied it:), like bathing them in water with brandy( though in my family nobody drank alcohol) or cooking egg for them when I hated the smell, I still cant drink in the glass in which egg has been poured.whereas for them I prepared everything...boiled egg, poached, egg roll to give them nutrition, though now my views have completely changed and I dont believe that for nutrition we need to give non veg or egg.
4-- I feel so proud and happy when anyone who meets my children praises them and tells me that i am very lucky to have such well mannered and affectionate children........its like Tata's getting the acclaim for Nano:)
5--Children multiply your happiness...now because of my two..I have two more wonderful people in my family who love me.
Though now they are grown up still whenever they are sick, I want to be with them. For me being a mother means to support your children without being judgemental( though many times I may have hurt them by being judgemental but everybody learns by mistakes), be behind them in every step of life. These two people have taught me...
to be completely selfless in thinking is possible sometimes:).
There is no life without them.
I shall keep on adding to this post of mine:). As for tagging I think most of the bloggers I know have been tagged already, so please those of you who want to do it are invited to take this tag
