The Most Wonderful Thing In This World

The most wonderful thing in this world for me is

to experience motherhood. Not even a good career

could match to a baby’s warm smiles; it takes away my

exhaustion and hunger. I could have experienced the

joy that I’m feeling right now 12 years ago had I faced

motherhood with great courage then. Instead, I passed

the responsibility to my more than willing parents; now

that my daughter is with me, I find it hard to connect with her

sometimes. Good thing, my newborn bridges that gap between me

and my eldest.

It aint easy to be a mother especially if you were single and

independent most of your life. My newborn wakes up every two hours

for feeding and diaper change. Since I am on maternity leave, I

take charge of the baby. We got our baby a nanny but I realize that

before her, I should be the one to familiarize my baby’s moods,

activities and attitude. I tried breastfeeding my baby but my mammary

is not producing enough milk for him. A friend suggested Prolacta but

even that didn’t help.

I look at myself at the mirror and there I found an unfamiliar face:

a sweaty and tired face. But my eyes are kinder, my smile is sweeter

and my aura is more peaceful. Motherhood changes my perspective in life;

from a career woman, I am now a family woman.

  1. Wow only 5 pounds at birth! Was he premature? glad to hear that he is doing good.
    Give your daughter time. She too in a sense has lost her mother, at a much younger age then you are now.
    All the best,
