Mommy prayer

Help me God to be able to hold a smile even when my baby decides to throw tantrums when I am out with my friends, because he is a just a baby and will do as he pleases,

Help me God to not expect my baby to stick to a routine and sleep when I want him to because he is not an adult like me to have timelines,

Help me God to not worry about the mess in my kitchen because it’s okay if I am not a super-woman, I am just a human being,

Help me God not to fret about the movies that I miss, the morning walks that I long for, the current events that I don’t catch up with, because being with a baby is my priority now,

Help me God to not fight with my baby when he refuses to eat because sometimes, he just doesn’t want to eat and that’s okay,

Help me God to not scream at my husband the minute he reaches home just because I haven’t seen an adult all day,

Help me God to not get worried when my baby doesn’t reach a milestone as expected because he has his own pace and that’s perfectly okay,

Help me God to not worry about my stretch marks, the hair fall or the dark circles because these will go away one day and not live on me forever,

Thank you God for letting me experience motherhood which let me expose a layer of love within me, I never knew existed,

Thank you God for letting me experience breastfeeding because I understood what it is to care for a baby,

Thank you God for showing endless smiles and simple milestones of my baby that have never cease to amaze me,

Thank you God for letting me cuddle with my baby and husband beside me because that’s when I know life is beautiful,

Thank you God for the little hugs that I get from my baby which remind me to look at simpler joys from life.

Thank you God for sending a baby who teaches me daily to laugh and smile a little more.

my nocturnal adventures

It’s been a little over 24 months (counting the pregnancy days as well) since I had a night out, meaning a late night dinner, or a movie night or just a get-together post dinner. A million things change once a baby comes into a couple’s life. In fact, nothing is ever the same. Though I haven’t really found the time (a mom’s clock is now monitored by her baby) to actually ponder over such things, there are these quiet moments of ‘just me and my athletic mind’ in which I sit down and fret over the things that I miss. But I don’t really fuss for too long, because there is always “someone” who needs you almost 24/7 and I have to practically pull myself together every single day to cater to the needs of this little tiny human being who is now the center of my world.
Anyway, it so happened that this little human whom I shall call “anklebiter(AB)” because he really bites through anything these days ( his favorite, though, are humans). So, AB must have sensed that I was probably missing on a …

Pregnancy Blues!!!

I haven’t been blogging much these days and that’s because new changes are taking place inside of my body. Well, growing a human being means a lot of things because everyday is new and different. Very often, you find yourself tracing back to the time of the first pregnancy and find that things are so much different because of the way you look at the days.

Of course, I ask myself quite often when I look at my active 4-year-old jumping up and down on the couch, screaming on the top of his lungs as to why I would want to add more noise and madness to my life by bringing another little human? I trace back my memory to the moment when just a few months ago I had started longing for the touch of a baby. Instead of simply watching some baby videos on YouTube or cooing over a friend’s baby, I decided to have one of my own. Pinch me!
Or perhaps, I am so used to the madness that a child brings along that I simply decided to add more of it into my life. Because hey, who wants a life where you …

What’s good about Workin’ Moms on Netflix?

As moms, I think it’s very important to find ways to de-stress ourselves as we do repetitive things day and night to show our children why it’s important to cultivate good habits. As much as we do the same things with the goal of raising good humans, it’s sometimes boring. Yes, that’s the tiny little truth not everybody will admit too.
 Motherhood, as much as it’s exciting, can be boring and monotonous. But the good news is that the boring plus the good parts don’t last forever as children grow out of each phase. Tada! Before we know it, the kids are tall and big, as we wonder what happened to the tiny humans we created not so long ago.
Anyway, coming back to the topic, I recently got hooked to a Canadian series on Netflix which is titled ‘Workin’ Moms’ which is about four working mothers who balance their personal and professional lives. It’s about mothers who love their children but also love their jobs, it’s about mothers who sometimes don’t want to have sex because they simply a…
