How Motherhood Changed Me – 3 years of Sarah

Dear Sarah,


We complete 3 years together today. 3 years of loving and being loved by a teeny tiny baby, with hundreds of sloppy kisses, tight hugs and tantrums galore, 3 years of motherhood! 3 years ago I never thought I could love and care for a little minion as much. After having you, I have become 100 times more careful about the surroundings, the food we eat, the environment. My life revolves around you. From the time I wake up in the morning, till the time I sleep (or pass out at 2 am due to exertion), you are the center of my world.

I was always a very self-centered personliving in my own cocoon and extremely anti-social (including my own family ;)). Now thanks to you, I know more people than I have ever known in my whole life. People know me as Sarah’s mom, courtesy my extra-social daughter 🙂

The love has only increased, despite sleepless nights, terrible tantrums and all the mental torture (no kidding!) you make me go through while crying and shouting. Not a very patient person that I was, I happily sail through a day of tantrums, shrieking and screaming (well, not so happily, but we manage)

I used to hate cooking! But I love experimenting with healthy food for you, and it makes me happy if you approve it too J I love seeing that content look on your face when I cook something for you, and demand more of it!

I used to live in a mess! And love it too! The situation hasn’t changed much here though – ask your Papa 😀 But at least for your stuff, I try and keep it a little organized and in place, and make the surroundings better for you!


Every breath you take, every move you make” – I’ll be watching you, loving you –  this Eagle’s song summarizes our bond and my love for you!

  1. I know what you mean about cooking. I hate cooking but once you have a child, you can’t afford to be careless about what goes in their mouth!

  2. I feel I was justttt like you in my pre-motherhood journey! Could relate to each and everything you have mentioned above (like I was an anti-social creature who did never like peope around including family)

  3. I wasn’t an anti- social person but a shy person, my daughter is such an extrovert she made me change too. I didn’t like cooking at all before marriage. I learnt a bit as my hubby is a foodie and then my daughter is turned out to be an even bigger foodie so no option to keep trying out new recipes. Glas to have known about your motherhood journey, Soumya!

  4. Loved that you decided to post this on Sarah’s 3rd birthday. I can relate so many things…. i learnt cooking very late and now i love to try things for K. loved reading it!
