The Lucky one!
I am one of those blessed people who have friends to die for. We had been rescheduling this all girls trip together for a long time and it was about time to bring the plan into action. We decided that the place should be nearby and travel time shouldn’t be long as a toddler would be traveling with us.
Rishikesh it was!
Rishikesh was the destination we chose and packed our bags. I had been on trips before but never without my partner in bearing the public humiliation (Yes, you are on the right track), I am talking about my soulmate. For this trip I had mixed emotion, on one hand, I just couldn’t stop smiling thinking about all the fun we were about to have and on the other hand, I was little tensed about the famous toddler tantrum.
Well, the trip was indeed a fun and relaxing getaway for me. Although little one did throw tantrums on some occasions (check out my Instagram Feed for tantrum series here) thankfully she was easy to soothe too. I am glad that I took a trip with my girl’s gang and planning another one soon.
There is one incident that I wish to share with you all, which made me emotional and happy. If there is a way I can be more in love with my little one then this is definitely one of those moments.
On our second day of the trip, we visited the pretty crowded place and I was carrying my little one throughout that little stroll we took. I was really tired (Thanks to my mommy’s brain I forgot to bring the baby-carrier) and hunger was making me sick too.
After walking for about 20 or 30 minutes we finally found a decent place to sit and eat. When I put my little one on a chair, I left out a little cry of pain. I wiped sweat from my face, offered water to my little one and was looking for a place to wash my hands.
To my utter surprise, my little one got up on the chair, caressed my face, blew me a kiss and offered her water sipper to me. I looked at her and smiled. She gave me a bear hug, sat on my lap and made a heart with her fingers (She learned this pretty recently).
May be it was nothing, maybe I am too emotional or maybe she was just doing this out of the blue but it touched the right chord in my heart. I saw those twinkling eyes staring at me and telling me that she loves me…the purest form of love “Motherhood”!
It just melts my heart every time she does something so unexpected and beautiful. These little moments are so precious for me that I decided to pen it down and keep it safe forever in my heart and in writing.
