Post delivery, I have met quite a few people, who when they saw me exclaimed…..”you dont look like a mother at all!” Initially, I just took it quite casually. Smiled and moved on to create conversation, but lately this statement has started bothering me, not in a bad sense but something that makes me think. How do you look like a mother? Is it because that Zoey dosent go out with me that I dont look like a mother? Or maybe because I dont grumble enough about the sleepless nights and the odd diaper changing hours. It could be because my sense of humour is still alive (Allah ka shukar)….but whatever the reason being, the fact remains …..”you dont look like a mother at all!” makes me wonder if I should be happy when i hear this or should I be upset?
On a happier note, being a mother obviously has materialistic perks….after nagging the life out of my hubby, constantly reminding him that I should get a gift on zoeys behalf, the lovely flowers were delievered to me, while hubby dearest was busy working away on the mothers day sunday!
