Being a Mother - An awakening
Created by Parentune Support Updated on Dec 16, 2021
Mother..the word itself says a lot.
I am a first time mom to a 5 month old boy and every moment of motherhood so far has been amazing. Motherhood teaches one a lot of new lessons which life may not have taught so far.
I was not ready for this baby, due to which I could not enjoy the first trimester of my pregnancy. But i really started to feel differently once I felt the kicks and movements of this little wonder growing in my belly, I began to look forward to being a mother.
I waited...waited for the doctor's appointments, scans , to hear my baby's heartbeat..and finally his first glance...so precious !
I feel that real happiness in a woman's life begins from the moment she gets pregnant. Suddenly she garners the strength to fight whatever hurdles come in her way..and her baby becomes the utmost priority.
Giving them their first bath, feeding them, late night sleeps, changing their diapers - everything is such a wonderful experience. I am never tired doing things for my baby.
At times I let my husband take care of our son so that I can get some rest. But even then, I can never sleep well because at the back of my mind, I keep wondering how my baby is doing. That's when I completely understood what a mother is and how much the mother cares for her child.
Every morning I wake up and look forward to the new things that my son would do today and worry if I may miss his sweetest actions. When I see him smile at me as soon as he wakes up, it makes my day. Is there a more beautiful start anyone can have to their day than the sweet loving smile of their child?
As a daughter I could never understand the hard work our parents put in while raising us. Now I understand as a smile from my child takes away all my worries.
Proud to say that I am a Mother.

Srividya , you have beautifully described what I too feel about my child and motherhood. As kids , we never realize the amount of pain, agony a mother goes through while trying to bring us up. A mother cries all the time, sometimes the tears reveal her affection, her love for her child and there are times when she cries to show her deepest concern , her fear , her insecurity with regard to the child. She becomes so vulnerable that she cries over little things that concern their kids, but strong at the same time as on her shoulders lies the responsibility of bringing up the child in such a way that he or she can face the world. No matter how old the children grow, parents responsibilities , their concern , their affection towards their children never ceases. It keeps them worrying all their life. This kind of love only a mother can feel about her children. She knows no limits when it comes to taking care of the child. I belong to one such mother who has sacrificed her entire life for the sake of her children. She is still suffering as her only son suffers .....suffers to the extent noone i knew has suffered but never there was a time when I heard her complaining or raising her voice or cursing her destiny . I salute her , and I salute every mother.
