Unlike a lot of other moms, my moment of realisation that I was a parent, didn't come when I saw Noddy for the first time. The first time I saw him, I was quite numb and busy admiring his tiny features. The moment came days later, when the #postpartum hormones were on their rise. We had numerous visitors at home and it so happened that I had to leave Noddy for a second to keep my utensils in the kitchen.
It had been just a couple of seconds when I heard him crying. I rushed to the room immediately as I knew he was asleep when I had left him.
To my horror , I saw a 2 year old boy , who had come with his parents, and was really interested in touching the baby but was threatened not to do so by his mom, somehow sneaked inside the room and was pressing Noddy like a toy... The kinds of toys that make sound when they are pressed.🙄
My suture dressing from the C sec was not even removed, and I remember picking up that toddler ( who was quite heavy by my standards as a new mom😃) and planting him out of my room and rushing back to Noddy. .
It was that moment when tears just trickled down my eyes, and I looked at my baby realised that I was responsible for this tiny human and that I will protect him forever.
That was my #momentoftruth, just like that, 8 days after I became a mom.
I would love to hear yours too! .
Feels good to participate in the #lorm challenge after a long time.
