Vows to my child! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

Dear Child,

You are the gift of our love and we cannot wait to see you, hold you & cuddle you. We have been sharing this bond for last 8 months and by each passing day the bond is growing stronger. There is still time to meet you in person, but today I make my vows to you. The vows I intend to keep forever.

I promise to love you unconditionally, to nurture you and protect you. I promise to hold you when you are scared and make you laugh when you are sad. I promise to support you in all that you do, even when the world stands against you.

I promise to celebrate your victories and stay with you when you lose. I will be there to encourage you when you try new things. I will be your courage when you are scared. And, together we will beat the odds and win.

I will teach you all that I know and help you expand your horizons beyond mine. You will be educated but I will make sure that you learn wisdom too. I will teach you compassion and kindness, love and care. For without it our lives don’t matter.

I made you from scratch and I promise to tell you everyday that I love you and cherish you. For infinity and beyond I will fulfill my vows to you, my child.

Love you,

Maa

Natasha planned to get this letter printed and post in on her child’s wall and to read them to her child every night. Such is a mother’s love.

Unexpected surprises! #AtoZChallenge

08 August,2015

Natasha was planning to spend the Saturday lazing around at home. As she had put on weight, her feet hurt even with an inch of movement. That’s when she heard the continuous knock on the door accompanying the persistent door bell.

‘Whenever I plan to sleep, someone comes knocking. Ah!’,mumbled Natasha.

‘Ananth open the door please’.

‘Nats, I am working, you go ahead please!’,replied Ananth with an uninterested tone.

Natasha walked towards the door with her graceful penguin waddle as the thudding on door continued.

‘SURPRISE!’, shouted the people on the door in unison. Natasha realized that her whole bunch of family and friends were present at the door.

‘Surprise Natasha! Let us in and stop gasping’, said her best friend Amy. As the people started gathering inside the home, it dawned on her that everyone had come for her baby shower. Ananth knew about it and he was one of the people involved in all the planning along with Amy.

Her cousins, friends and colleagues had come together to throw her a baby shower. There was food and drinks and lots of gifts. Amy had brought her special pasta and her mother had made Biryani. And, to top it all they also had bought a dress with matching tiara for her. The cute decorations added to the charm.

During the day, they had an auspicious ceremony where elders blessed her and her child. They whispered sweet nothings into her ears. Afterwards, they had dance party in the living room.

Natasha was elated at all the love that was showered on us. And, she knew that she was lucky to have people around who care and her child would be equally loved. The day was spent well with all the unexpected surprises she got.

Tossing and turning! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

Sleep while you can – everyone had advised Natasha when she was spending her nights binge watching Friends series. And, she should have listened then because now sleep evades her.

If only she could lay comfortably, close her eyes and sleep uninterrupted. But, she could not ignore the yelling bladder at night and no position is comfortable to sleep. The nights are spent turning right or left. Because the baby doesn’t like either side for long.

‘Ah! When will I be able to sleep! I can’t even roll. The baby keeps kicking and poking.’, exclaimed Natasha nudging Ananth.

‘Nats, you should really ask your doctor about it. No sleep is not good for baby.’,  spoke a sleepy Ananth.

Second trimester was better, at least she could sleep more. With three months still to go, a good night’s sleep looked like a distant dream. She walked out of the room and tried to get comfortable on the couch and eventually fell asleep. Thus, another night was spent tossing and turning in hope of sleep.

Sun and Sand! #AtoZChallenge

Last chapter

Bentota,Sri Lanka

Ananth and Natasha went to Sri Lanka to relax and unwind for their Babymoon. They stayed in Bentota for two days on a beachfront property.

The resort was surrounded by coconut trees and vast lawns on three sides and an endless Indian Ocean on one side. It was a treat for eyes. They spent their days sunbathing on the beach or lying in the pool. The beach remained sparsely populated and had few eateries around to enjoy local delicacies.

Natasha was elated that she could take some time off before the child came. She was happy to spent some moments alone in the company of her love.  And, she loved flaunting her baby bump and capturing it in beautiful photographs.

When not on the beach, she would sit in their room balcony and watch the rising and setting sun. The rising sun was a promise of their bright future ahead.

On their last night in Bentota, Ananth took her out for a candle light dinner where fewer words were spoken. For they enjoyed their silence more and they talked about coming back with their child who would spent time making sand castles.

The vacation was blissful and all the sun & sand added more beauty to the already glowing Natasha.

Restless nights! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

30 June,2015 5:00 p.m.

Ananth could reach home only by 5:00 p.m., by then it was late to reach airport in time. They had missed their flight. Natasha was furious at Ananth and unwilling to talk.

‘Why did you even go to office? You could have logged in from home and work. I don’t even get to go to a vacation now.’, Natasha spoke as she bursts into tears.

‘Nats, it’s all right. We can take a vacation even now and we will. I will make this up to you!’ Ananth was clueless as the rains had created havoc in the city. The weekend was spend in making refunds for all the bookings. His surprise may not have worked out, but his mind was racing to make other definite plans.

Natasha was upset for days and did not talk to him. Ananth was persistent in his efforts and finally convinced Natasha for a long weekend holiday.

After many restless nights, this time Ananth made sure that they went for a beach holiday.
