Lookie lookie.. I have the first guest post here… My lovely lovely Bhavimma :-*
Dear Little One,
You are all of one now.
How do you feel, is such a cliched question. But nevertheless, I am tempted to ask. Imagine what your mummy would say – “Bah! He invites her to his blog and this is what she has to ask – how are you!! ” I can even imagine the shape her mouth would assume to show her contempt. But we will let her be. Whatever said and done, she is alright 🙂
Do you remember the blast we had on your big day?
The first time I came to see you, you were sleeping and I could not even hold you for the fear of waking you up. At that moment I wasn’t sure when I would be able to see you next. When your mummy called me for your first birthday and when the plan was finally fixed, my joy knew no bounds. I was counting the days to D-day and was probably more excited than your poor mom. You of course had no idea what was happening. You were busy being sick and everything.
After an eventful journey which also happened to be my first trip alone to an unknown place I came near you. You were sleeping so peacefully one moment and the very next moment you opened your eyes and looked at me. Babies cry when they wake up from sleep and find a stranger next to them. What did you do? You opened those large eyes and looked at, smiled… as if you see me every day. That is the moment I knew, that there is something more between us that is seen.
Do you remember how astonished your mummy was when we got along so well that you even started to eat what I gave you and how you came away with me during the party for the small breaks when the crowd became too much for you?
Be the way you are, even when you turn 21. Loving, kind and contented. No matter what life gives you – show the world your huge smile and move on. Nothing is more important than your well being and your happiness, but that doesn’t mean you trample on the happiness of others’. Be careful of that. And finally, always know that you are enough. You are a precious child and we all love you. All we want to do is to see you happy and content as you are now.
Love you loads kannaa… Umma!!
PS: Thank you for having me over 🙂 Give your mummy a hug from me okay?
PPS: Mamma says this note bought a lump to her throat… Though I think it is cause of stuffing herself with all that palm candy muthashan bought for me all the way from kolkota!
