mom and dad

I was talking to some friends the other day...and we were discussing that after this weird "everyone is getting married" phase of life...the next stage of even more weirdness would be that of parenting...

Soon you would start hearing news of people "expecting" soon....and even though I am not a fan of babies and kids (I do like babies...i DO NOT hate them....but to be honest....i am a bit scared of them!) , you would have a bunch of kids running around you when you meet friends...close same aged relatives or the likes...

That...i feel....would be a SERIOUS change...!!
I mean...imagine you and your friends...sitting at the coffee place...late night...like every Saturday...to relax....and unlike present times....there would be ranting, crying, running around, screaming...ufff! Dont count out the fact that half of your frineds wont turn up....for reasons ranging from "my kids got school meeting tomm" to "my baby is crying/ill past few days" to even "dint get a baby sitter today"

I donot know how I would personally cope up with all this...but it would be worth a watch...

That scary topic led us to our parents...
and I realised how SELFLESS a job parenting really is...

Think about your Mom and Dad for 2 mins...look at them...realise what they do and dont do...and you will know...

Everything that they do...yes...each and everything...revolves around their children!
Like...all my mom really cares about...is whether I am content...happy...or if something is troubling me or no...
That is how it is for their generation of parenting...

SELFLESS CARE...that is the best you can describe it as...NO other words!

I sincerely doubt if our generation of parents would be this way...if would really live upto this level of care...which at times...we dont even acknowledge...

Well...have been trying a lot these days...to take out time...and talk to Mom...just...beacause...I know it makes her feel good...and amazingly...talking with her...does release a lot of my tensions and concerns...
Somehow...Moms have this astonishing quality to let you know that "Everything will be ok"

Thank you Mom and Dad...I may not say it often...but I do mean it...THANK YOU!
