Her maternal grandfather use to call his wife Rani and she will repeat it the whole day. She started speaking at the age of eight months, she use to crawl in a very unique way. Where ever she accompanied her mom people will tell her mom you have a beautiful daughter. She weaned from her mother's milk on her own. She never irritated her mom, she never complained about anything. She was an apple of eye of her father and will look forward to cling to him when he will be home. She will be scared when someone calls her name while she is doing something with full concentration. She can have tears on a very small thing. She will say hi to everyone and does till date.
Yes it is my and my daughter's story. Reet came into my life when my son Siddharth has reached to a stage where he does not needs my support for daily chores. He is turned into a very intelligent, sharp mind kid like his father. He can do his homework on his own, and his reading skills are simply marvelous. I feel proud when he tells me mume i am better than u in English, yes in maths you are very good.
I reinvented the wheel of deprived sleep, diaper changing, feeding the baby, potty training etc.. But somehow i am happy, blessed and contented with doing all this again. I am happy taking a back seat at my career. Sometime people complain about having so many holidays in school, i look forward to those moments with both my kids.
I want to enjoy each and every moment of this part of life called parenting. I want to be in complete love with this part where my daughter is just learning to speak few words and my son can write complete stories. For me the most beautiful time is when Reet affectionately calls her brother " bhayia" i want to rejoice her first word "una" which was followed by mume, Daddy, bye, de de, aaja....
I want to frame the moment when Siddharth reads me a story!!
Life is fun filled, challenging, beautiful and adventure with two of them around. Sometime it gets tough but then it reminds of the lines i read on the wall of the mother care store.
"For that wonderful, frustrating hilarious, serious, exhausting and beautiful experience called parenting"
When i look at above picture, it reminds me that days will come when both Reet and Siddharth will be leading an independent life the way their parents has done. Till then i want to enjoy writing this blog and this part of life called parenting.
