My Experience of Being a Parent for the First Time
Being a parent is the most wonderful feeling. Whether you’re a mom or a dad, we share a special bond with our little one. There are not enough words to express the emotions within you when you become parents.
Parenthood is not an easy task. It comes with a huge responsibility and a much greater joy. One can say responsibility and joy always go hand-in-hand. The joy you get fulfilling your responsibility is undeniable.
For your little one, every day is a new day with loads of challenges ahead. And as your baby reaches each milestone, you feel like celebrating and you do celebrate! You start reliving your childhood days with your little bundle of joy. Every day goes by planning new fun activities, new recipes, new ways to help your little munchkin to explore things around her. As days pass, you feel as if the days are getting shorter.
But sometimes as the day ends, you feel completely stressed out and exhausted. Doubts like, “Am I not a good parent?”; “Was I too busy with my work and did not spend enough time with my child?”; “Am I doing enough for my child?” crop up in your mind. You feel utterly disappointed with yourself.
Your child looks at you and comes crawling towards you. When you lift her in your arms and she looks at you with her innocent eyes trying to figure out the emotions as she is still working on them. She smiles at you, wraps her little arms around you and gives you one big hug.
The hug works like magic on you. It makes you forget all your worries and exhaustion. You feel so light inside and completely filled with joy. You regain all your lost energy. You just look at each other, smile and say, “Tomorrow is a big day”.
