#MomsOfBabyChakra Motherhood is hard. It’s full of ups and down and plenty of frustrating moments.
You will learn things about yourself that you never knew existed. You will learn a new form of patience and self tolerance. You will be tested in your abilities to compose yourself as well as how to love like you’ve never know before.
Motherhood is messy. It’s not always full of good days and funny moments. There are days when you want to just sit and cry or sleep for days. You will find that you will give up certain things in your life for the betterment of your family. Sacrifice.
But remember: don’t ever lose yourself.
You are still important and need to remember that you are still your same beautiful self. Becoming a mother doesn’t mean you lose sight of who you are. It means you gain new parts of yourself.
Some days I struggle and lose my cool. I get disappointed in myself for not being the perfect mom, but then I remember that as long as I show up everyday and do my best, I am being a good mother. And no one is going to love this child as well as I do.
Remember to give yourself grace and realize how amazing you are for just showing up. You are a great mother."
The greatest gifts we can give our children is grounded-ness and freedom.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is what my parents have taught me and what I hope to pass on to my own children.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has been the most incredible feeling spending quality time with my parents after my family's return. I am so grateful they are home, that they invest so much in my children and our lives, and that they love US as much as we do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From being my backbone when I took the decision to shift my entire family to a service apartment to managing an entire household away to even tutoring my kids since I couldn’t.
I can never stop depending on them can I 🙈?
What is the best gift your parents have given you that you use in your own parenting journey?"
Do you feel a deep connection with your little human?
Just because you are physically present with your children, doesn’t mean that you are emotionally and spiritually giving them what they need. They are growing and they are doing discussion & interactions with their friends too, but What Vihu did recently many times, “everything he had discussed with his friends or teachers he share everything with me without fail that I observed recently happened so many times!” I am happy atleast he is sharing his lil-big moments or conversations❤️
So as parent provide them this undivided attention they need, so they feel truly valued, try:
1. Putting your phone on aeroplane mode or switching it off completely to reduce distractions.
2. Get on their level and make eye contact so you can make them feel like the most important person in the world.
3. Have discussions on any meaningful topics and share why you appreciate one another.
Whats one way that you like to connect with your favourite little humans?🤷♀️
