A heartfelt letter…

Dear mom of a new born,

  • I know, you have been waiting for this day since you saw the two pink lines on your pregnancy kit…
  • I know, now that you have your kid beside you…you are amidst a riot of emotions…
  • I know, that the emotions are not only happy ones…they are accompanied by pain and confusion too!
  • I know, there may be times when all you want to do is shut the curtains tight and sleep for 100 hours straight…
  • I know, there might be a while when you don’t want to clean poop or feed or do just anything motherly!
  • I know, there are sleepless nights spent and secret tears shed when the baby won’t stop crying and you do not know the reason why!
  • I know, that the beautiful long hair that was your pride once is now reduced to a messy bun and you couldn’t care less!
  • I know, once in a couple of days when you see the mirror, you see a tired shadow of yourself waving back at you!
  • I know, you ache to go back to the computer and your work desk and miss applauds from your team…
  • I know, it has been ages when you had a slow meal without a worry on your mind about the kid waking up…
  • I know, you feel helpless, worthless and sometimes the feeling creeps in that whatever you do will never be enough…

But this, my love is a phase. A tiring, confusing and sometimes depressing phase! At the end, it will be all worth it! Believe me when I say this, because…

  • There will be times when he looks at you with love so pure you will want the time to stop.
  • You will swell with pride when he learns to turn around and crawl and walk and blabber.
  • You will be the first one to experience these milestones and then know why being a stay-at-home mom is not so bad after all.
  • The squishy hugs when he gives in the mornings after waking up will fill you with happiness so profound that no remuneration in the world will match those.
  • The goofy smiles and the loud laughs that he echoes your house with, will give you a feel of sunshine residing in with you!
  • Seeing him sleeping sound, in the blanket with you, his face satisfied and smiling in his sleep, will make you feel blessed.
  • Feeling the little miracle growing up… Counting days to his first birthday will make you realize… Wow! I created this masterpiece!

Agreed, days may seem never ending and tiring! Agreed, the person you were yesterday might not be the person you are tomorrow, but never feel worthless because even when the little one stirs amidst deep sleep, all he would be looking for is your warmth before he can go back to sleeping soundly! That is how irreplaceable you are!! Take a bow and brace yourself for the biggest adventure in your life.

Kindest Regards,

Mom of a one year old!
