Being a mother is the most unexplainable emotion in the world. I was thinking what to write down about the joy of being a mother. However, I could not gather words together to pen down my love for my son. I had a C-section delivery and it was really painful. The pain was not of the stitches but of the fact that I could not hold him or hug him on the first day of his arrival and was unable to shower my love on him.
I can not forget his cute little face. I was wondering, “Is he the same little boy who was inside me a few minutes ago?” I just could not believe that I became a mother now. From being a free, independent wife to a responsible and a caring mother – I felt so much compete. Yes, my dear Raunak completed me. I had heard that a woman is complete when she gives birth to a child but never understood its meaning, only after I gave birth to the star of my life, did I understand that. I love my son.
As the days passed, I became very possessive of him and even after 4 years, I still am. I never got any “me time” and if ever by chance I get it, I start missing my child.
He is my life, my smile, my joy, my sorrow, my everything. He gave me the strength I never knew I had, he made me realise about my fears. People say that in India, a lady gives her “tan mann dhann” to her husband, but I say that a lady gives it to her kids as well.
Taking care of my child keeps me so much occupied. Cooking healthy food for him, taking care of his cleanliness and health, buying clothes and toys for him takes my contentment to a level beyond. Teaching my little one ‘Johny Johny’ or numbers gives meaning to my life and meaning even to my own studies. I was always the topper of my school but could not get a chance to pursue my dreams and career. But when I hold my cutie’s fingers and make him write, I feel as if I have topped again. Last month he was the scholar of the month of his class and even won in a dance competition. The ecstasy of seeing him grow and achieve is something that hundreds of branded dresses or makeup won’t be able to give me.
It is not just the child who works hard, it is even the mother who works hard with him. And I am a proud mom that I do everything to let my child be successful and a good human being in his future. And that is what is BEING a MOM is for me.
