A letter to myself.

By Shruthi

Thank you, Poppin's Mom, for a wonderful theme for this month. We do need this, don't we? :)

Dear Shruthi,

Stand up, and take a bow. You are doing beautifully.

You didn't think, did you, that you had so much patience, so much love, and so much tolerance in you?

Did you ever think that you would, without a moment's hesitation, put someone else's needs before yours, and not grudge it, or expect anything in return?

Did you ever think that you would spend sleepless nights and have excruciating backaches because of a certain someone, and yet, love her to bits?

You are not too far into mommyhood yet, and there are a thousand challenges ahead. But hey, you know what, having watched you these nine months, I can confidently tell you that you will handle it all with ease.

Follow your heart, go by your instincts, and do what you think is right. You want to bring up a responsible, mature individual - don't worry, you will do just that.

Shruthi, you are a wonderful mom, and you know that. So don't let anybody convince you otherwise.

Love you.

You're welcome Shruthi!! Stand up and take a bow. No matter what they say, the first year of the first baby is the hardest.

You're new to the whole parenting thing, there's advice coming from everywhere and it's just backbreaking work, the sleepless nights and the feeding. To top it all they are just so fragile.

It gets easier from now on and harder too in many ways. Something tells me you've passed the hardest test !
