Amazing people who make me go on n on n on:)

My Angel with Horns!

They say you pay for your sins and reap rewards for your nobility within the current birth cycle itself!
My dear little adorable fairy of a daughter, who moonlights as a little multi-tasking imp, is here to prove that right!
All of eight months to be in a few days...she has me seeing stars in the day and pray for ray of hope at night when she refuses to do what ordinary and lesser mortals normally do...that is sleep, by the way!

I remember the day I first saw her at the orphanage where we got her from...
As the nun handed her over to us...she had that completely lost expression...yes, just like her mother*that’s me now btw*sports most of the time!

She seemed the quietest baby ever...for not a word was murmured while she shyly came into my arms.
She looked around with unmatched tranquillity...as though grasping things slowly...unruffled like a placid lake!
And we thought... awww....what a “shaant” n well behaved bachcha this is!
I was also thinking...phew! She’d be so easy to raise with all her serenity and gentleness! And yes it did follow a mental ‘yiyee, yiyee, yiyee!’ too.

Cut to now...1 month with us...and little Seeya has bloomed n how!
She’s proved that ‘helloooooooow dude...appearances can be deceptive!’
What you see is often not what you get!



She’s a little angel who transforms into a little terrorist every once in a while!
She’s hyperness personified!
She could easily win the “naughtiest child on earth award” hands down and before you say that’s what ALL mothers think...lemme tell you this is voiced by anyone and everyone who is fortunate enough to get to spend some time with her!*I sometimes feel when she’ll grow up a little...I would probably get regular complaints of her beating up the ruffian school boys or taking ‘hafta’ from the school staff!*

She’s my ‘gunda’ baby! And when I call her that in a sing-song way*trust me that’s a tune you don’t want to hear* she shakes her bum n nods her head to give me company so that her poor mommy does not look like a fool crooning on it alone!



She fidgets like her life depends on it...as though God sent her down with an ordinance that if her bum was to be fixed at one spot for more than five minutes...she’d be called back!
Screams as though it’s her birth right to do so for anything and everything that she does not like or does not get!
She feels sleep is a waste of time and being still is waste of space provided by us and legs gifted to her!
She is rarely quiet and this when she can rarely say a word beyond “ta..ta..ta..ta”*considering if these are words at all*

When I tell her ‘no-no’ for something...she nods her head to indicate ‘yes-yes’*mommy...if you think you are smart, I am smarter and making the rules here*
I put her on the cot to sleep and she rotates a complete 360 degrees to scare our guts out and make sure she is soon got to the bed instead!

I feel she’s slept now finally and would give me at least one hour of uninterrupted sleep for myself...but before the hand reaches the hour knell...you can hear her yell!
And when I am in the deepest hour of sleep or just about to flirt with a delicious hunk in my nightly sojourns of dreams, she is in the most hyper active one and again ensures she has me woken up with a start, just before I am being kissed*damn...earlier it was just my beloved breaking my love dreams now even my daughter has joined his ranks...can a human not get some privacy even in her dreams? Woe to the world!*


Cute looking stuff toys are put in her arms, so enticingly huggable that even Hitler would wanna cuddle them...but naah, that’s not Seeya style!
She would either pull out their fur or eat up the poor toy’s nose in the most voracious of bites that you would have seen*I make sure my nose is within safe distance of those predating teeth!*

She compulsively has to dip her fingers in the bowl when I try to keep it safely inches away while feeding her...and before I could clean off the khichdi from those tiny five extensions called her fingers...in the next instant, I would find that the khichidi has automatically managed to reach her clothes as well as mine and other unmentionable places on me n her!

When I do her maalish*massage* with milk n haldi n besan...she thinks I have brought a treat not for her body but for her mouth instead and rubs her hands on her stomach to take constant savoury bite of what’s being smeared on her! An outsider would think we do not feed her enough and get us sued!

When I try to bathe her...she’ll make sure to scream her guts out for a while even before the water ritual begins, so that everyone in the house*if it were possible, even the neighbourhood* would come rushing in to give me an unasked for verbal guide entitled ‘1 million suggestions on how to bathe/raise a kid’ and yes they do an encore of it each bloody day!



When I’ll put her on the potty seat, she’ll scrunch all those tiny facial muscles to make me believe of a successful emission and thereby mission accomplished...
So I raise her tiny bums to my lap and check...
Only to find my own flabbergasted reflection in the sparkling clean water in the pot that has not been gifted with bits of waste of hers and soon to follow is something wet n yellow and amazingly stinky on my kurta...and then this always is followed by the most pleased grin on her countenance!

And that’s not the worst people...the worst is that both me n she want to shit at the bloody same time as soon as we get off the bed!
And needless to say, you know who gets the preference and who’s been at the constant sacrificing end since her life cycle began some three decades ago!
Basically saying...
My motherly instincts overpower my bowel calls!


She’s like those automatic dolls with buttons...put her on the bed and she cries and pick her up in the arms and she’s quiet within a second...hell..There’s even a tear half way on the cheek...that drops dead in its track!


And as if pimples on my cheeks were not enough to deter any prospective cheek-y activity...I now have her nail scratches there too!
Not to mention the smell of baby food or baby shit emitting out of me often or dried farex being pulled out of my hair that get stuck together!

Phew!
Motherhood is tough people...
But tougher still is staying away from this adorable devil...
She’d do something real bad and grin with her six teeth to make you forget it!
She’d lap n move her legs as though cycling to express her excitement on seeing you and you feel alrite...trouble me as much as u wanna...
I’ll grin n bear!



It’s been a fun/tough one month so far...and for further details...
If I survive or succumb?
Does Seeya change me or do I manage to change her?
Watch this space!:-)

Shreya said...

loved the whole post ..
reminded me of the days of being newly masi (almost for 3 months) i was half the mother except the toilet part i experienced almost everything ..
aww.. babies are such cuties ...

God bless you both..

Dusk said...

Suruchi my darling... do you really think, that a being as spirited and full of magic such as yourself, was going to get anything less than a 'pyaari pataka'????

As for the change question... "What am I is hard to define, because the moment I settle upon one facet of my character,I discover an almost a contrary one right there...I'm evolving, hopefully for the better.

Explains it all.

Parenthood is tiring, it's tough but it's not hard, Hard is what you went through before.
...you are a beautiful woman in all aspects and ways that make a woman a WOMAN.

Seeya is beautiful!!! She makes me want another child!!! I have enough! I'll just wait for grandchildren now!!!!

Big hugs you delicious slice of Womanhood you!

Nostalgic said...

Ohmigod, she's sooo adorable. Muaahies to her! And hey, the mama looks beautiful there :)

Sakshi said...

Take care

Tanvi said...

I had to make sure I read this when I had enough time to read each and every line and not when I am rushing and just trying to absorb all the blogs in a jiffy! So here I am on a free/lazy afternoon going through your post. You are so happy and Seeya is so lucky *touch wood* And this is such a good way to document her life. I am sure you will look back and laugh at all these posts [along with her] ... i have already told you so many times but it is not enough. She is a wonderful baby and you are making all of us smile with your cute-humourous-motherhood-anecdotes!

God Bless Your Cute Little Family!

blunt edges said...

I have no doubt that Seeya is gonna win this duel!! :P

suruchi said...

@Ria...
Thank you gurl...

Touchwood!

You are a gem...congrats on your 100th*yippeeeeeeeeeeeee*
Just read it yesterday n commented...

suruchi said...

Hi Shreya,
Wow..maasi huh?
I guess then you would relate here!
But then there’s no motherhood really till you handle potty woes!
Here’s hoping the future brings you that too!
:-)God bless you too!

suruchi said...

Hi Dusk,
My daughter had a permanent name from here dear fairy godmother...
PP=pyaari pataka!
The name rocks..just like you!
And fairy I had to say for you coz you are no less!

If Seeya makes you want another child...this is the best compliment that she could have got!
And your grandchildren would be little lucky mischief pots!
I am available for adoption too by the way..
I think the more sexy parents...the merrier!;-)

suruchi said...

Hi Nostalgic...
Wish could know more about you!
For you’ve been so nice!
Muwaaahs back to you to gurl and thank you for the praise!
Finally someone complimented me too...yiy yi!
:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Sakshi,
You’ve been there with me through the times when she was just about to come and I was filled with apprehensions...
You’ve been there when I wished I could talk more to you to be a listening ear as a friend should but could not!
Who’d know more about how this is for me than you!

Seeya n her mom send loads of love back to Sakshi maasi!
Saying you are wonderful n stay the same!
N delhi aake she’ll be with u to baby sit for sure!:-)

suruchi said...

suruchi said...

Hi Mady.
Arre...children don’t change us...they just take up so much of us that we have little remaining to give to others!
Mady masi...dekhna, she’ll make me worse than what I was...just in a matter of time!;-)

suruchi said...

Hi Su...
Everyone’s been super kind with me n her!
You inclusive...
I shall always remember how you created a celebration of sorts all over facebook the day I declared her arrival!
Muwaah n hugs!

suruchi said...

Hi Sovi,
Seeya is already interesting n dynamic...
Now all that remains is this to grow!
Thanks for the hugs...
Snug hugs back to you!

So I try to keep it close!:-)

Abhi to thank your lucky stars I evaded the gory details!;-)

And that grin says...momma, I am more of a brat than you are!:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Mohit...
I had heard people complain about it too...and raised a proud eyebrow at that...
What’s with these people...so much cribbing about raising just a little kid!
Now I am at the receiving end!
Boo hoo!
Anyways...thoda naatak bhi hain...I am actually quite happy too!
Thank you..
Wish loads of happiness back to you too!

suruchi said...

You’d be around, to see her grow!
:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Blunts...
Ab I am going to maaro a very cliche dialogue...
Ab Seeya jeete ya mein...ek he baat hain na!
Hehe..
Thanks for being on “our” side!:-)
Hugs!:-)


@Ayu...thanks gurl!:-)

buckingfastard said...

and she looks like a calm kid...i shudder imagining wat ur mother went thru!!

gunda giri with school boys is much better dan flirting and running away wid dem every oder day..so ur lucky compared to ur mom!!

and open a blog for seeya and post her pics as she grows up and eventually all that she scribbles!! one day she will love it!!

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Haha well, hope she stays that way till she's all grown up, then you won't have to worry about protecting her from the bad guys!:)

I'm sure its tough managing everything. I'm sure it's very very difficult being a mother, but trust me, you will earn the love you're now giving! :)

Prithwish....... said...

hey Suruchi..
another icing on the cake..this time the credit goes to the cute little daughter who has transformed your life completely :):) your translation of experiences with her is simply wonderful here...each and every word is filled with care and caution..and special mention for the pics..they are simply faboulous..!!

I am sure the little angel and her mommy will continue having this tussle of love and despair...:)

P:S- She is lucky to have a parent like you...:)

suruchi said...

Hi Bucking...
And looks can be deceptive!
Like look at me...not really innocent looking or talking!
But what a simple girl next door I am;-)

And my mother went thru a joyride!
Ask her even now she beams with pride...just like u silently do when I flirt with you...;-)
Aaaah....now if only...umar, shaadi n now even bachcha ke seema na hote;-)
Jao...leaving u for some cute girl, whom u’d make very, very happy...

Opening the blog for Seeya is such an amazing idea...but then I am having so much trouble maintaining just this one...I wonder if I’d be able to do justice there!
See...you commented on August 11th n I am replying on 1st September!
:/

suruchi said...

Hi Tamanna,
Thanks baby...I know I will be rewarded by loads of love from Seeya...
She’d be my biggest fan!
I can’t wait for her to grow up n read my blogs!
:-)

And I don’t think I would need to protect her from the bad guys...I think the guys would need protection from her....
Hopefully, I’ll raise her that way:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Prith,
Thank you so much...for all the love showered on me n Seeya...
The tussle continues..
As the rest of the posts show...
But we are slowly getting more comfortable with the changes...
N soon mastering them too!:-)

Thank you for your best wishes, that are never lacking!

P.S. I am lucky to have a ball of wonder n joy like her!:-)

Alka Gurha said...

Came to know abt ur bundle of joy thru ur post Suruchi....Daughters r a blessing.God Bless Seeya!
Time flies so fast...I remember my son at age one....Such good times and now an empty nest.....
