Reflections of a first time mum

The moment a child is born, a mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely New - Rajnish

Hi rashmi, other than the fact that we share our names, we share all the common feelings that i have gone through. I wish sum1 had told me about all this before my baby was born. All of us seem to think that we are the only ones going through these feelings, but we are all sailing in the same boat. I have so many frends who say they feel like cryin all the time in the initial months of the baby, and all I tell them is that this is very very normal. i loved your sentence "A perennial pushover, I somehow transformed in to an assertive mom" that exactly me, other than this i leared cooking nice stuff for my son tanush, I learned to be more organised (cnt let my son feel he has a sloppy mom,)I am learning driving at 30 (dont want my kiddo to travel in auto)so moral of the story

Lovely article Rashmi. You have beautifully brought out how motherhood can bring mixed emotions. And yes, I do stress on the 'me time' :)

Rashmi, I am a new member at this site. I came across your article in FB. I so much liked it that I had to become a member at this site. Credit goes to you. Besides I am a new mom. I can relate so much to whatever you have written... starting from "The moment a child is born, a mother is also born" to "if someone told me that I’d be a stay at home mom I would’ve brushed it off as a joke". I am looking forward to a lot of new information in the coming days.
