I am a mother of a baby gal and expecting a baby again. There's an obvious question people ask me "What baby you are expecting .. Gal or Boy ?". Being a North Indian, my obvious choice (if given) is of a "Boy". Is it , Is it not ? Well, even I am not sure about it. Honestly !! It may be because I am a mother and all I wish is a healthy baby. A boy can be my desire, as I already have a baby gal and would like the change But you know what? My mother cried, when my first child(daughter) was born .. According to her she petied the fact that I got a gal and felt it was my fate. She is worried this time too. Surprisingly, I am second daughter to my mother. And my mother raised both my Sister and I in equality to our brother. No difference in upbringing.No difference in rules for Boy or Gal. We are educated, infact studied more than our brother.Our parents bore all the education cost without any complains. Gave all the possible Love we deserved to have . Still my mother feels that giving birth to a gal again will be my fate Strange na ?? May be my mother looked towards us as a "Mother" and loved all her kids equally. But thinks about my children as a "Grand Mother" .. This is still puzzling to me. My three year old daughter is a friend to me, mother to me and I dont have further words to describe this unique relationship. She feels protective and caring and agressive, if somebody raise a voice on me. She feels her mumma is best and beautful and makes me feel the same. She wants to hug and sleep with me as if I am her favourite Teddy Bear.Wants to play, wants to feed me with her choclate, feels worried if I say I am tired,listen to all stupid stories I tell.I Wants to relate my childhood with hers .. She makes me feel my presence in this world. She is the one who blessed me being called a "Mother".. and surely makes me cry when I write all this.. This all cant be a FATE.. Its definitely my destiny and opportunity to live my innocent childhood again .. I Love being "her" Mother !!
