How we think before and after becoming a Mother..

After we become mother, our thought process changes a lot. You agree? Along with waistlines, sleep patterns and patience level, the biggest thing that changes in ourselves, is our Minds. Now what we eat, what we do and what we say, depend upon our mother side to a great extent.
Here are some of the examples that show how a common woman thinks before and after having kids :
  • While shopping cloths:
    Before : I need this dress in light color. This will go best with my nude shoes. The size looks perfect for me. 
    After : I need this dress in Black. And it would have been good if this has option of elastic waist. I need to try it,I am not sure what's my size these days.
    • Inside a footwear shop:
    Before : Oh beautiful! I need those wedges. I would also buy those pencil heels. I would look slimmer in these.
    After : This store really has a bad collection of flip-flops. And they don't have colors in flats. Who buys those 4 inches in multi-color?
    • Finding a strange substance over bath towel:
    Before : This must be make-up. But I should not use it.
    After : Is that poo? Vomit? Permanent marker? For now I would use the other side of it, that looks clean.
    • Hearing a baby crying in public:

      Before : What type of mother she is? She can't calm down her baby !
      After : Poor mother!
      • Seeing a toddler wailing in a toy shop
      Before : Parents should teach kids how to behave in public area.
      After : Thank goodness it's not me!
        • In a dinner party:
      Before : I love salads. You know it's healthy and fresh. 
      After : God I am so hungry, when this dinner will start ? Till then let me finish this mac and cheese from my son's plate.
      • Call for a kitty :
      Before : It would be fun to go . "Sure I would love to come!"
      After : Hmm.. I don't have any good fit dress. And it would take almost an hour to dress up kids and their diaper bags. "Let's see If I can come."
      • Planning a family outing :
      Before : Let's go to that xyz restaurant. The ambiance is so romantic there.  
      After : Mac'D would be best. We'll have any xyz burger. And if you still feel hungry, I'll cook khichdi back home. 
      • About motherhood:
      Before : I have heard it's hard. But I don't think it's THAT hard.
      After : It's hard and even harder. People say it would get better with time but I don't think it'll get easier. 
      Still we all love being a Mother, isn't it?

      My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

      As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert. From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns.

      Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

      Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse : वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥ Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.. I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki. अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2| Atasi Pushpa Sankasham Hara Nupura Shobhitam..Ratna Kankana Keyuram Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum... I salute to the teacher of this world Krishna,

      #TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

      I am not the mother who.. I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold. ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life! I am not the wife wh
