Every mom is a supermom. Nobody can deny this fact. All mothers have to go through some ordeal and vicissitudes as part of their life. Life is not a bed of roses, as they say. Each of us have seen few circumstances in our life which makes us feel effeminate or fallible apparently.
Then after going through the dark tunnel full of predicaments, we see the illumination at the culmination and find ourselves much stronger and capable of doing things which we have not expected ourselves. When the going gets tough the tough gets going. I endorse.
No time remains the same. After every dark depressing and dark night there comes a bright sun to give us hope. At the time of my pregnancy and delivery no one was there except my husband. Because of health restrictions and travel issues neither of our parents could come. No qualms because all is well that ends well.
I had never carry any baby in my hand before. I had no knowledge how to carry a new born or my emotions. I and my husband just used to watch Google and YouTube and go by doctors’ words and advice and the main thing is that our experiences taught us the parenting.
For example it took 45 minutes for both of us to give our new born his first bath and later when we switched to baby bath tub it was just 5 minutes!! We both were overwhelmed to see this transition.
I used to think that baby cried because he was hungry and I used to feed him. It took me many months to realize where I went wrong. They say it is 1 year of sleepless nights because of habit of getting up in between during night sleep just for the feed but for me it took much longer. I used to wonder when will this episode would improve.
But believe me all new moms that every problem has a solution and it takes time to see the answer. It is always within us. We just have to do our duties and wait patiently. From 9 months old till around 3 he used to get fever every month. His weight is still just of a year old boy. But as far as the doctor says normal we are still less worried. Because it’s not in our hand how to make him gain his weight.
My daily routines for which my husband applauds me:
What my lovely son Ram Sharma has taught me
So I would say the two ingredients which make every mom as super mom are her mother and her kid. Because I have seen my mom doing all household chores on her own and go for job (hats off to all working moms) and I try to do my bit. Also I think this is the time they need us. Time is the most precious gift and I’m very possessive with my relations. So I try to give the best I can in every possible way.
I will call myself a supermom when he will become a good person, a good human being. Fingers crossed! Thank you for taking out time and reading my experiences. I know your ordeal also is worth knowing. Keep up your hard work and appreciate yourself for what you are.
With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.
