Most women I have seen in my life have been really good around babies, but not me... I myself was a overgrown baby, I fought with kids who measured the length of up to my knees. Babies would squirm and bawl their heads off when I picked them up. It irritated me to no end to see kids giggling with my brother, but their faces contorted to some unpleasant expression when I held them...
These thoughts plagued me every once in a while when I was pregnant. What if my baby didn't like me? I know, it sounds just too silly, but none of this is made up!
And then I delivered, and my own mom looked in amazement at me handling the baby with tenderness. Suddenly I became an epitome of patience and love(my mom's words 😁). All my doubts about myself melted away, and I realised motherhood isn't rocket science. Its just trusting yourself, and knowing when to ask for help.
The best part of motherhood is my little playmate Vihaan, and the bonus, I'm really good with babies and kids now!!
So, for all moms and moms-to-be who are struggling with self-doubts, #imhereforu
