One year of parenting

By the time a woman realises her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she’s wrong

first year of parenting

Last Sunday (on June 7th) we celebrated our little lady’s first birthday. It was a bit of a shock to realise that we have successfully completed one year as parents. As a mum, I have a new found respect for my own mum (as well as my grandma and my loving aunt), who not only raised two daughters but managed it with a successful career. I honestly don’t how she managed it. But what really hit home was how my parents did it all while bringing up two kids.

Most of us often take our parents for granted but only when you become parents you realise the enormous challenge of parenthood. You realise the little adjustments they made and the not-so-little sacrifices they made to make you the person you are. I also wonder how they did it as a team, without letting their egos come in the way as a family and without tearing each other down. This is a lesson we as new parents are still learning.

I have also learnt one thing about motherhood: the days might be long but the years are definitely short.

Now for the fashion part, to celebrate this special event, I wore a beautiful black and cream saree with hints of gold because let’s face it you need a special attire for a special day like this while hubby decided to opt for smart casuals with his Levis Jeans and Pepe London t-shirt. The star of the show, our daughter, was dressed in a pretty little red frock with gold headband and accessories. Yes, she certainly is our little fashionista.

Hopefully, you have noticed the changes in my blog. After a lot of pondering, I have changed my blog’s domain name to style with substance from voices in my head. I honestly liked the previous name but I needed something short and memorable. Since, my blog is a mix of fun and serious stuff I wanted a name that reflects its philosophy hence style with substance. Stay tuned as I would be making more changes to this site–which is my sweat, blood and baby. Enough said.
