The Girl, The Lady, The Woman…1

I was once a girl, loved and cuddled by dad and mum,
Then I became a lady,eyed by every gentleman in town, and left alone to discover and explore,
Later I grew into being a woman, the joy and pride of my one and only soul mate (the gentlemen can keep their eyes off now…or suffer the ‘wrath’ of my man…lol)
And now…I am a mother,giving my all to my child.

Being a child is a stage I wish would last forever,
Even though my wish then was to grow up quickly and never have to run errands (smile)
No wonder I loved to take the lead in the ‘mum and dad’s’ play with my peers at the time…

Now, I have come to learn that in the ‘real life’, motherhood does not come cheap!
Pregnancy is sweet and makes one look good (only when you are wearing a ‘costume’ on your belly…lol!)
Likewise, childbirth is fast and easy….only when you are watching a movie
No matter how comfortable you are…diaper prices,school fees and the pains of childbirth will always give you a second thought about having another child

Everything about parenting is spelt R-E-S-P-O-N-S-I-B-I-L-I-T-Y!
Oh yes, responsible to all that call you mum or dad; satisfying all their needs as they arise, day in, day out, until they are old enough to stand alone

Being a parent is not a joke but for real,
You are either one or you are not!

    Beautiful piece of writing…glad to be identified with you sis.God bless.

  3. You spelt is well sis, well written.
    From being a girl drawing guys looks, to being a lady sifting ‘man’ from guys, to convincing your Dad (though taking a gamble sometime). Off you go to being a wife, then M-U-M! 24/7 life time on duty, still functioning while half asleep. Amazing how this job radiates love above pain!
