I wish she had learned to crawl ..( 2 months old)
I wish she had learned to walk … (6 months old)
I wish she would be able run …( 1 year old)
I wish she would sit quietly….( after 1.5)
This is a kind of never ending wishes, when my lil pie was born , I wanted her to sit n talk to me, or play with me and I thought that , it would be more relaxing , but every stage was a new challenge.
When she started to crawl , it was like where ever I go , she was just right behind me ,everywhere. 😛 I know its the case with every mom. When she started to walk around , she always wanted to walk , and sometimes when am in a hurry , I just wished she could run with me , and I think the wish was soon granted.
When she started to run , I just wanted her to sit somewhere peacefully and so that could gulp in a few sips of my tea , but instead , it was like I never got a chance to sit and eat or drink. And now , its like I have to force her to go and sleep , or play , just to get to some ‘my time’ .
Anyways good enough that I learned very well to cook , eat , sleep , play , talk and do many things with one hand, half mind and half concentration , as all other mommies . Yes , the other half or may be three- fourth for my lovely lil daughter.
Other day when I spoke to a new mommy , she just repeated what I had always been saying since I became a mom , ” I wish my kid just started to walk , rather than lying down and playing ” , I couldn’t stop laughing , because I know what a new mom expects ,” to relax a lil bit at least” thinking that if the kid is own their own they may not bother their moms. , which is just a wish .
But once the kids are grown up , they stop to look for us ,rather they need to be alone all the time and mothers will deeply wish to get a second with their kids.
So am truly , cherishing all the moments with her , rather than wishing for something new.
