List three awesome things that happened this week.
- BabyT recognises few numbers and alphabets now. It’s so wonderful to see her learning new things every day.
- The weather has been quite splendid the past two days. A delightful change from the wintry blast we’ve been having.
- Hubby prepared yummy almond halwa and MysorePak for Diwali.
Mention the one event or concept or person I felt strongly about.
I read some extremely insightful articles about comments and advice to pregnant women. I agree, and am sorry to say that before BabyT arrived; even I was guilty of saying cliched things that were not so nice. I only found how annoying it is when I heard all those crappy lines. As a Mommy, I went through quite a few problems -food aversion, weight loss in the first trimester, nursing and later weaning issues, baby blues, went through the NICU experience (strength to those who do go through it), to name a few. And I know that sometimes at such times, we are not in the frame of mind to receive comments- however well intentioned, let alone advice. not from random strangers or even acquaintances. Unless it’s a very close member or my own doctor or a confidant I’m specifically asking advice from, I did not want advice or comments. So, I’ve decided to adopt the awesome suggestion and keep my observation limited to: You’re looking wonderful and advice as: Live in the moment!
Sending lots of strength and energy to Mommies and Daddies (they go through a lot too!)! Enjoy the weekend.
