My life was going very much on a straight track;
until I was caught in a motherhood hack.
Though not once but twice;
to give me a better taste of life.
That good news of becoming a mother took me to cloud nine;
but who knew it will be a roller coaster ride.
Sleepless nights to postpartum depression;
I always carried the distressed expression.
Colour, texture or condition;
I can give a complete analysis of poop, pee or any other composition.
My vocal cords have become so active;
listening to my banter even neighbours have become proactive.
You helped me to include healthy food in my diet;
because I ended up eating your leftovers, right?
Maggie is not my resort when your tummy calls for something yummy;
I challenge to make a less than two minutes healthy meal because I am your mummy.
My trips to shopping malls are no more carefree;
because my visits are only confined to mom and me.
I am impressed by how my sixth sense has so much improved;
I come to know even before you want to puke.
A continuous bang on the washroom door;
always helped me realise that I have just two minutes to restore.
There are times when I have to make a choice;
between eating, sleeping or a cup of tea to get back some joy.
Motherhood is crazy and not an easy job;
but it’s an incredibly beautiful bond to which I always want to hold upon.
I may not be perfect but, I am enough for sure;
to take you along the adventures of life’s grand tour.
With ups and downs, with joys and sorrows,
I assure you to give you a happy and healthy life every day, today and tomorrow.
Thank you for giving me this day to celebrate;
as they say, Mother’s Day!
