Life has changed guys..it is REVOLVING AROUND THE CHILD !!!
And I am writing this after 2 months because for the past two months I was lazy, tired, frustrated, breathless and happy. I knew being a parent is like having a tattoo on your forehead, you have to be extremely in love with what you want, totally sure of how you plan to go about carrying it and prepared for the lifelong commitment.
But boy was I in for a surprise..Our days begin at 6AM with a hyper active 7 teeth 1 year old, who hates being confined. Having said that, the house has been child proofed (read: no furniture with sharp edges) we have stopped using glass utensil and are seen eating in steel, plastic, melamine kind of stuff. The plants in the balconies remain neglected and what once used to be my bougainvillea plant now has 10 Tulsi plants growing. The drawing room crystal showpieces have been replaced by cars and bikes that rotate at 360 degree and have crazy music playing. What once had a huge palm tree pot placed, has a bright orange Hannah Montana bean bag which houses all her dolls and toys and books, newspaper shred, yogurt packets, chocolate wrappers and some stones.
Its been 7 months since G and I have spent time alone, just the two of us. We are more like parents and less of a couple. That big brown couch..well it has never seen us sitting together. We have dinner in turns, so the bub does not jump out of her crib. So far she has got her head banged quiet a few times, had a cut lip, a swollen forehead and other regulars. For a romantic like me, it has pretty much killed me. We manage to sleep on the same bed , yes, but very honest with you..we sleep dead. Either these are signs of an old marriage or either matured relationship. Yes I miss having him all for myself but when I see him with Bub I am the happiest to sit back and watch them play.
Life has changed..i have changed ..i have a feeling this blog will no longer be about just G and my sweet moments ~
I finally give in to maturity and wisdom at 30 !
