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.
So far, the response has been amazingly overwhelming. Merry Motherhood has gained more than 1K followers (1K hearts) 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 email@example.com 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 🙂
