Uncertainity

 

Image

Sometimes life takes us in a long journey and makes us stand at point , where we are totally in a uncertainty ,its like either run away or fight it , or just leave everything to God.What do we choose leads to our destiny.

 How to live though such circumstances is a tough thing , how much ever you are advised you tend to behave as the heart says. How much ever we try to do something as planned it all ends up in a total mess, but everything has a reason for its own happening.

At a certain point, we feel like dropping everything and running away from the whole world, blaming all the people around us and many things which doesn’t have  any connection to us, strange but true.Running away is never a way out ,I learned it.

Situations teach us many things  about taking life lightly, slowly and waiting with loads of patience pays you the best.Whatever happens  , happens for a reason , just like sun rises , always , it takes hours , so for life to take up a change we need to wait.

Last day of her playschool

Image

Sitting next to my daughter who is asleep , taking a  nap after her last day at school , looking over to all the boxes which I have to fill in , before travelling , am not sure what emotions am going through.

I still remember her first day at school , even then I was crying and when she was leaving her school I was almost crying. May be am being silly as always. Is being tooo emotional a problem , I don’t know but I can’t help it.

I had a tough time , when I was packing all sweets for lovely friends in her school , as my lil one don’t know why she will be giving her friends sweets , the pain of her not realizing that she is saying ‘bye-bye’ to her friends made me cry , but that is life . I know so many good things are in store for her life waiting for her ,and these small things in life , may not matter her in the long run.

As I see her peacefully sleeping , I could memorize all her lovely days and the changes she had gone through since she joined her school.  Things change , places change , but memories live for ever . Am not sure how much she might remember about her days here, but of course she might not forget many at least till she gets another set of  friends and teachers.

A life-long blessing for kids is to fill them with warm memories and later on they become treasures in their heart to live out the tougher days in life.

 

 

Parent- Teacher meeting

Image

As parents we both were , quite excited, about the day , when we were going to meet our kids Teacher. The proud moment of being parents. I never knew , how it will be , I kept asking to my parents, about how might the meeting go on , out of anxiety. 

As all parents, we too were worried, whether we will be receiving any complaints , or is tat our kid , is just fine in school , about her behavior and many more questions. That excitement was  fun , it was different experience in life and as first timers it was more of enthusiasm about how we going to handle it. It may sound funny , but yes, first timer will of course have tension , its a part of  immaturity. 🙂

It was like some exam we were going to attend , a question of parenthood. Thoughts like , how she handles everything in school alone without her parents in school , how she responds to them , and many more question which were there from the beginning of her school days , were popping in my mind. And I was full of question to ask her, just to get to know what she does in school , those three and half hours, in my day when she is not in front of me ,I was all excited to know and have a picture in my mind. 

It was all different , I have gone to parents meeting as a kid and that too years back , so at that time , the only thing in mind was ” what that teacher is going to complaint about me??” , but this time ,it was just that, ” Please I do not want to hear any complaints” , Funny but the truth.

The whole meeting went fine , and I noticed my lil pie , patiently and keenly listening to what all her teacher was telling us, and of course ,she was happy and from then on, she seemed to do anything to keep her teacher happy.

Am glad that ,she has a wonderful person to guide her. 

 

Patience pays

She waits all along for her dad to reach home ,and immediately he is in , she asks him, “where is chocolate ?” ,her dad as usual surprised looks at me , throwing a question at me through his looks ” why is she asking me , aren’t there chocolates here ? ” . And I smile at him , handing him a chocolate from the cupboard and give him a hint t give her ,as if he bought it.

I appreciate her patience to wait for it, even it is a simple chocolate , i know it means to her . Its sometimes good to develop such characteristics in them. But honestly its not just my effort as a parent even her teacher helped a lot. 

It was difficult earlier to make her wait patiently for anything, she used to cry , shout , and try all her best tantrums on us , to get things done ,and parents like me, fall for all those tantrums, there is no escape.I didn’t know that requesting her to wait , will work out , but one fine day , to my surprise, she did behave as I  asked her to. 

Even though I know that shouting at kids , or being strict doesn’t gain us any love and respect , my immature motherhood ,does it some times and I regret doing so . Nowadays am in control not to do such immature acts and show her what exactly maturity is through my love and respect and lots of patience.

Patience pays well , and it always pays the best. 

 

I hate Goodbyes

Image

I am not so good at goodbyes.

Some partings …are helpful. ;)…and easy to say ..because its just getting rid of people…but some good byes are painful…because we don’t want to part with our loved ones.

My lovely lil daughter , is realizing the parting dilemmas , she is in a stage now to realize what exactly  ‘good byes’ mean. I have noticed  that , whenever she is back from her school,, and bids good byes to her friends , she hated it so much. She never wanted to be away from them, but later on things changed, she realized that its not a leave taking , but a small bye for a short time and she will be meeting them again. 

Later she started to take such things lightly and enjoyed waving her hands to her friends to say good bye and meet them again later. Whenever her dad leaves for office , earlier she enjoyed to wave him bye-bye , but now , she knows that those bye-byes…. are meant for a little longer time for him to come back, ,and she will not get him to play with ,and now she likes to wait for her dad to be back home , she keeps checking the footsteps and keep asking me “who is coming” and waits for me to tell her that its her dad.

The same magic applied, ‘the wait for something ‘, when her grandparents left, we told her ,, in order for her to chat with them again, they have to go and so she consoled herself . 

Its so appreciative to see kids admire people in their life and value them.
