A thank you note to my child

Have you written a thank you note to anyone close? How about your own child?

I’ve often heard people say that Parenting is the toughest job in the world. And now that I’m a parent, I agree.

The hours are weird, your employer has crazy demands and despite having a hot teammate, you’d find yourself wanting some “you-time”. Add to the fact, that if you are a full-time parent to a toddler, you no longer have a sense of time – weekends are the same as weekdays; 9pm is the new “bedtime” and your definition of a date is a “two-hour” chat with parents of other toddlers discussing potty training and what happened in the last episode of Chota Bheem.

Yes, parenting is difficult. And for a good reason too. You are now responsible for an entire person (or people – gulp) and everything you say and every action that you take will set an example  – either good or bad.

But here’s the thing – it’s not all doom and gloom. Your little one can make you feel thankful about a lot of little things, that we often tend to overlook. So today, I’m dedicating this short poem (a thank you note) below to my little mischief-maker.

Thank you for being my inspiration
To write every word with conviction.

Thank you for teaching me
The virtue that patience can be

Thank you for being my reason
To wake up without regrets every season

Thank you for driving me nuts and
To keep me sane and focussed.

Thank you for your smile
That which can nurse any wound of mine

Thank you for showing me with all the seriousness
That a little silliness is always needed.

Thank you for making me slow down
To enjoy the little things in life

Thank you for teaching me how
To unconditionally love.

Thank you for showing me
That it is okay to be imperfect

Thank you for teaching me resilience
To keep trying till I succeed

Thank you for showing me
that I can show what I feel

Thank you for showing me it is fine
To ask for help once in a while

Thank you for making me remember
That little child in me again

Thank You for coming in my life and
Teaching me how to live life again.
