Being mommy

Image

 

I was looking through old photographs of my lovely little daughter after her arrival in our life. 

The moment she was born, I was so excited to see her, I forgot all the pain and tension and the world around me. It was only her , seeing her well lit face , brought sunshine into my life. I touched her hands and legs tenderly ,so soft and smooth. Her eyes all closed as she was sleeping in my arms, I wanted her beside me in my arms forever.

Whenever I hear her sounds, I was excited. When she cries, I sit wondering how to calm her cry because I never knew what to do , and of course my mom came for rescue in such situations. I was learning being a mother, how to do , what to do and when to do.

Its true that whenever a child is born a mother is born too, and mothers are learning in every stage how to be a better mom. All mothers love unconditionally their kids , and I realize how much I love her whenever I look into her eyes , I can see the happiness , the protectiveness , the  love , the care  , the feel  and when I hold her closely to my heart. 

First few weeks were totally a mess in my life, never knew where to start , and what to do, and by following the expert advises from  my mom and grand mom , I could succeed to little bit.

The sleepless nights ,the wetting beds , all those troubles transforms into loving memories , when our kids grow up and it becomes the best stories in life which we lived through. All mothers feel so proud to tell about their kids, how they are are , what they are . For every Mother , their kid will be the naughtiest and the sweetest and cutest. 

Love to all  mothers . Motherhood is a true blessing.

Bedtime story for mama :)

Image

 

Yea, that is true ,my cutie pie ,told me a story to put me to sleep .

I was down with headache and then I wanted to take rest, but not easier when my kid is around. Even then , I didn’t want to sleep before feeding her , at least she will let me take rest then. After I was done with her dinner , I went to bed , but due to pain forgot to tell her am going to sleep , and she was busy playing.

After five or ten minutes , I heard her call out for me. In one part , I was so happy to see that , she can never be without me, but on the other side , I wanted little bit of silence.Even then , she came over to me, looking for me all around the house. In spite of her dad telling her not to disturb me, she was adamant that she wanted to be with me. And of course I never denied , as my heart dominated me.

I tried to relax, but it was difficult ,as she was keeping on murmuring to me, hugging me with her one hand around my neck which anyways I was loving. She kept on telling me stories about her school, her favorite cartoon ‘peppa pig’ and doing magic in between like the princess Holly in ‘ben and holly’s lil kingdom’ . 

I kept listening and listening, and in between her dad comes and tell her to be quite, and then she murmur in my ear ,still she didn’t want to stop it. And later the tittle-tattle  became louder, but I didn’t know when I drifted to sleep with her head resting on my shoulder. 

Its a blessing that I have lovely, caring and wonderful daughter in the whole wide world. When I was struggling to relax, she relaxed my mind with her sweet stories. Love you always.

Hugs

Image

The best way my daughter expresses her love for me is when she hugs me.

She extends her arms and hold me around my neck so tightly that , I feel so relaxed and happy.And she  hugs me and gifts me with lovely sweet kiss. There is nothing sweeter than this , nothing refreshing than the love i receive from her.

Perhaps she must have noticed that , whenever they are happy or upset, or crying or scared , we take them in our arms , and hold them tightly closer to ourselves. Nothing can be as protective as a mothers arms. When she is happy, she just hugs me and press her face onto mine , and give a lovely sweet smile . 🙂

It just reflects warmth, affections and the acceptance from them , and they feel the same.It strengthens the relation. Some emotions are hard to be told , and can be expressed in a hug.

It works like magic .

Off to the park

Summer has begun and its all fun time for kids, all bright and sunny around them with lots of time to play.

 Even though she plays a lot in her school, the moment she wakes from her sleep , she wanted to go out and play in the park , where her school friends will accompany her.She was all excited the first day , we were going to the park, after a long gap of the cold winters , we were going to have fun. 

I expected  her to jump around in happiness and play on slides , swings and sea saws ,but to my  disappointment  , she was just lingering around me itself. Then when her friends arrived , she was all excited, so i sent her to play with them , but , again , she would climb up and stand still there, and again run back down the steps, instead of sliding .

I was not sure what exactly was going on in her mind, then I accompanied her even though I wa scared of heights and sliding , I went for my daughter to give her more courage. I tried to make her sit , but she was not willing , and the truth was even I was scared , its funny but the truth. After making her sit next to me, I took her down the slide , once , twice and more , then I stopped and gave her a break. 

The first day was a failure, on the slide. But to my surprise , the second day , she went happily on to the slide, even though she called me to accompany her , I did not and let her do it alone. Seeing all other excited kids around , she got the enthusiasm to try the slide alone , and yes she did it all alone and came running to me and told ” mamma , we did it” .

And I was so pleased about myself and my lovely lil daughter.As a parent I withdrew on many things I wanted to do for her , but when her happiness was considered , I never put myself  away from trying. Hope I do that now and then to see my lovely kid happy.

Tantrum handling

Image

Its one of the most important thing in parenting , considering how to make kids listen to us .

Most of the time , they get irritated and fail to listen what exactly we want them to do or rather , we stop listening to what exactly they want us to give them.In such cases , its all a waste of energy to compel them to listen to us. 

Some try punishments like time out , or tell them if they behave badly , they will get bad punishment and many more. Punishments must be different for different kids , depending on their basic nature. All have a different aspect of looking into a particular matter , as how the adults differ in it , the same way kids also differ in it. Some kids need to learn through little bit of harshness or some others a simple way .

But to built a better person tomorrow , we need to be conscious about what we choose for them.When ever they do something good enough , reward them, so that they feel like doing more and more of such good deeds , but of-course we need to be cautious of what we are rewarding them with. Make them appreciate even the little things in life , so that later on they learn the value of what they have.

Even though am not an expert parent , am also learning how to control her tantrums , sometimes its difficult to handle and sometimes like miracles or magic, my daughter tend to listen to me and keep calm, as she knows that for patience she get rewarded with her favorite lollipops . 🙂 I love to see her happy and I always wanted her to listen to me , and not make a fuss  , and I always tried to keep up my promise on rewarding her. 

Parenting takes a lot of skill and patience and is constant work and growth.
