Life Changes, Sure, but who knew by this much!

"Your Life will change". This was an oft-repeated sentence we heard whenever we mentioned the baby. Well, we had left the party away phase some time ago and were more in the "grocery shopping - Errands-Friends over for lunch" phase. So how much could it truly change?. Turns out a lot.To the extent that taking a shower or even going to the rest room, seemed like a luxury and "me-time".

Giving birth to my baby has been one of the most enriching experiences in my life - One that I proudly count as one of my biggest achievements.However, don't get me wrong, life has changed a LOT. You just do not have control over your time anymore. AT ALL. But, I have also found out that I now have the capacity to completely disconnect from a bad day at work. Sparkling eyes and grubby little hands will do that to you. The pure joy that I get from watching my baby laugh or do something for the very first time, is nothing like I ever knew before. I am delighted at my own capacity to give - Never thought of myself as a loving human being before!

Rohan - whom we lovingly call Rohuli - is absolutely at the top of the power rung when it comes to our house. No one eats, sleeps, showers or goes out without his blessing. That explains the name of this blog - dedicated to my super active bundle of joy. He has the whole household, grandparents included, spinning around him.

A very good friend of mine recently shared the good news about the stork visiting her and her hubby. And mentioned her plans to search for a new job while on maternity leave. And to attend evening school right after. I asked her to take it easy ,since life, as she knew it, was about to change. She earnestly replied that she knew what she was getting into. I smiled and thought "Do you , really ?!!! ".

Good Luck N!
