I am Divya Krishnan, a techie by profession and writer by passion. One sunny afternoon, the stork knocked our door, delivered baby D and BAM! every minute that followed by miraculously redefined my sole purpose of existence in this sublunary world. It is not easy being a mother and most definitely impossible to be the perfect one – no matter how hard you try. Days tick by in a whirl of million nappy changes and jillion growth spurts, not to mention the overbearing cries in the middle of a good night’s sleep. Mood swings and meltdowns are part of the ordeal. The list simply goes on. A mom is often fragile and emotionally unarmed while fighting back a myriad of situations that question her capabilities. Tribulation is part of motherhood and that makes the journey more meaningful. I truly celebrate the role of being a mom and would move mountains to keep the little one comfy and happy.
Merry Motherhood is a humble attempt to document my experiences as a first-time mom. Most of the scenes revolve around my Baby D who is 1.5 years old and Dr.H my husband who is a doctor (When we meet someone new, I deftly say “he is a doctor and I’m the sane one”, just to promote my non-doctory skills). In addition to the mom-talk, I sometimes do the estrogen-induced jibber-jabber when I crave an uplifting conversation.
I believe in the power of Positive Parenting hence the mission to accomplish my self-laid goals with respect to nurturing baby D is forever a WIP. The commitment calls for more learning, encouragement and mutual support from people who are better experienced than me. Through this virtual sanctum of mine, I intend to let you readers see the world through my eyes at the expense of your precious time.
Every child is unique, so is the way we parent them. Recently, I have also added a column named “Star Rendezvous” where I interview other moms about their parenting journey and share their experience in the form of Q&A.
So far, the response has been amazingly overwhelming. Merry Motherhood has gained more than 2K followers till date. I still cannot believe that the words I type from this dark corner of my bedroom is being read, ruminated and enjoyed by people all over the world. Thank you so much for your kindness and feedback. I value every reader of mine, we are now a close-knit community in this widespread blogosphere. If you are interested to guest-post in my site, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Guest Post For MM”. Let’s help each other grow better as a parent and outgrow our own weaker versions in the days to come.
Happy Parenting 🙂
