Parenthood, Relationships, Recipes, Travel, Joy of Life ….
These are all precious pearls on a string we call ‘Life’. Threading them and joining together exhibits successful parenthood. The state of being a parent takes a lot of energy, time, patience, focus, learning, understanding, experience, teaching, anxiety, concern, worry and what not. And much more! But in return, you get unconditional love, respect and togetherness which makes you content.Talking about relationships is fun. Cooking recipes and eating with your spouse is a date. Travelling is so much of an adventure. But as soon as this relationship turns into parenthood, the world turns upside down. Best defined as a topsy turvy life. Travelling which was once an adventure now becomes an organised yet messy vacation.Parenthood makes an individual more aware of childcare, multi-tasking, manners and responsibilities. There are so many roles played apart from that of a mother or father. The role of a teacher, best friend, doctor, nanny, nurse, even a maid to clean up the litter and change diapers. Just having one more member of the family adds so much to life and makes it fuller.Materialistic things like toys make those lovely and beautiful cute eyes sparkle and shine. You try to create something new out of paper so that you can show your kid and watch them get excited. It’s amazing to learn at any age. Children look up to us and learn. While teaching them, we learn so much and have a sense of realisation. The process is pure with its share of hurdles. We, as a parent, try to control our actions and words knowing that our kids look up to us and imitate. Having self-awareness teaches us to check our words and how we conduct ourselves. It’s a kind of a reality check every day for parents!
