I am currently a mother of two kids– a nine-year-old boy and a six-year-old girl. Both these children have given me unforgettable moments of joy. I have also experienced a lot of tensions and have spent hours worrying about the welfare of my kids and myself. I have successfully placed these negativities aside and only carry the pleasures, the awesome surprises and the magical moments that are a gift of motherhood. I wish to share, with everyone who is interested my stories of becoming a caring mother from a carefree- easy-going- twenty-
two-year-old young woman.
A couple of years ago, when my kids were not as understanding as they are slowly becoming now, I used to have a tough time keeping them in control. They wanted the same things and often quarrelled. The younger one would snatch at the elder one’s picture books and before I could stop them, their favorite rhyme page was in pieces. The toy basket was always tumbled upside down, and both of them wanted to climb over it at the same time. I had my daily chores to complete, yet I had to help them climb over the basket. The laughter that followed was more precious than everything in the world.
Growing kids demand time. The modern age with its technical overgrowth is making my kids smarter than I expected. My responsibilities today are to help them develop their understanding of the world and its ways. Moving in pace with time they need to know all yet refrain from things that can contaminate their innocent minds. I want them to grow up with pleasant memories, and for this, I spend as much time as I can with them. I know that very soon they will grow independent and their innocent mischief will not be there in the days to come.
For now, I enjoy everything that my kids do. It is a time that I wish will not pass too soon!
