Dear Next Person who tells us ‘Oh! Second one also girl’
Really I dont know how to respond to you. Whether you are that priest who told RD that ‘the third one will be a boy’ or that granddad downstairs who told me that ‘koi baat nahi beta! Kya kar sakte hain. Bhagwan ki den samajh ke bada kar lo’ (its okay. You cant do anything. Consider her a gift from God and take care of her)
Ah well! Okay thanks. But we do consider all children gifts from God and no, we arent planning another kid. No money you see!
Dear Next Person who expresses sadness over the fact that I had a C Sec
Really, its ok. Yes, I was working till a week before I delivered. I cleaned my bathroom the day before R2 was born and I managed to wash all the vessels after breakfast on the day she was born. Yet,I had a c sec. It wasnt planned. I was already deep into labour when the baby’s heart beat fell drastically and the gynac had no choice but to do an emergency c sec as the umbilcal cord wound around R2’s neck.
But really stop acting as if its the world’s greatest tragedy. First one was normal then this should have been easier no? I dont know really. And I dont care. Yes I have a paunch that refuses to go but I had it even after R’s delivery. I am really sick and tired of the negative comments about C sec. Its over. Done. Now pls dont express any sorrow.
Dear Next pPerson who tells me that R2 is so fair and looks at R with a sad face
For heavens sake! Dont say that in front of my elder one. She is already suffering from a complex and on top of that these comments. I dont know when we will get over this complexion craze in India.
Amma why did God make R2 fair and me so dark is a question I have been getting almost everyday. Every child is unique I tell her. You have big eyes and dimples. You are different that I am….etc etc. I am trying to get rid of this complexion thing from her brains and you folks are just not making it easier!!!!
I should really learn how to blog from the phone..getting on to the computer is a feat with an infant in tow!!
