Motherhood is all about recalibrating your equilibrium and recalculating your priorities. You are well aware of how your ‘Me Time’ will take a flying leap out of the window and yet when that happens you are in a tailspin. Moreover, when there are two brats to control, the ‘Yoyo’ that they make out of you, is completely out of this world. Suffice to say looking prim and proper is a thing of past, embrace the new harried and worried look as that is what Motherhood inspires.Screaming, running, spilling, breaking, smashing, tantrums, skinned knees, bloody elbows and fractures are everyday speed bumps. The main thing is to look serene even after all these. The periodic heart attacks that the kids give you, which can scare the living day lights of any sane person, completely and fully entitle you to binge on chocolates and ice creams to rehab, restore and rejuvenate your soul. In some extreme cases even a good cry might help. After all the next round is around the corner and the vicious circle begins.

The biggest thing is no matter how topsy-turvy life becomes, you will never ever exchange your little hellions for anything better. They might aim to age you by ten years in just five but, they will always be your sweethearts.

To all Mothers, let’s raise a toast to our scamps, drown our everyday ordeal in sugar high and begin the new day with new hope and high expectations.

    Wonderful write up Mahima…. all mums can relate to each and every word written.
    Guess every bit of stress we have to bear throughout parenthood is worth it…. because the most precious jewels we will ever have are our children. 😊
