I thank 2b's mom for having such faith in me, after I had made such a hash of her previous tag! Some friends just don't give up on you...(lump in throat and tears in eyes). Well I have been tagged to put a finger on five things that I love about being a mom- actually I can write a million things but I will try to think hard to zero in on what I like about it as of today...I am sure that my brat and mite will give me another million reasons to like motherhood again tomorrow.
1. Well, first things first, I loved being pregnant, the very idea of having a new life coming into existence inside you was exhilerating. Although I had high blood pressure throughout the first time and swollen face and feet both times, I did not mind at all.
2 Then out pops the baby, its first glance, the entire feeling when you touch the being who was till now inside you kicking away...it feels like all of your insides heart, lungs, stomach, liver is melting into a pulp, there is so much love that you feel like jelly!
3 When the baby starts feeding, that little mouth programed to suckle, making contented grunting sounds, it is difficult to hold yourself together. I remember crying out loud when I realised that my last baby is weaned and I will not have a chance to see another little one contently feeding, latched on to me!
4 When a million 'ummas' (kisses) are deposited on your face just after you have spanked a little bottom making them cry. they have complete amnesia- one moment I am screaming hysterically and the kid is throwing a tantrum that could shame a tsunami, the next moment a tsunami of kisses engulfs me! they have not learnt their lesson!
5 The sound of hearing the word 'mamma' a trillion times a day from the moment they get up till before you pass out at night, in different tones...better than any music...
buuus, that's it?...I was only getting started...anyhow this should do for a start!
