Report Card

Did I think that only schools had report cards? That only my teachers assessed me and gave me rankings and grades? Was I happy when I decided that I’m done dealing with marks and grades,after completing my post graduation?

I guess I didn’t have a slightest of an idea that the ‘real’ report card is yet to be made.I was yet to be assessed,well in a way! The game was not over yet….in the cliched filmy style “picture abhi baki hai mere dost…”

So!!! My new report card was made few months back and I’ve started getting grades now. I’ve a syllabus to cover up but the best part,as of now,is there is no deadline to it πŸ™‚

~It feels good when the baby’s pediatrician gives a big smile and says “I’m happy with her progress'”

~It feels good when people say “Her food habits are wonderful,hope she continues!”

~It feels good when my baby looks at me and smiles her widest smile when she likes what I cook.

~It feels good when she shifts her preference from her dad to me and insists that I put her to sleep πŸ˜‰

No! I don’t mean to say that people [family and others] put pressure of ratings/assessment on mothers. But it comes naturally to us,me thinks.

I’ve realized that “I” feel appraised when someone says good things about my baby. Does it not happen to you ?

  2. definitely.. we will so proud (it comes naturally) when someone praises our baby..

    yeah right !

    by the way is that your report card? why is cooking dinner – N/A madam?

    hehee no ani it isn’t mine..found it on the internet πŸ™‚

    being a better mother is a constant evolution.. πŸ™‚ we will always wish to get better grades.. πŸ™‚

    I agree πŸ™‚

  3. Hmmm report card,so true no,never thought of it.Lucky kid…..


    Loved the anklets in the header,my baby too wored it when she was small,the best part is when the kids start walking no,they love the sound of the anklets and they walk just like that to hear the sound…..

    isn’t it the cutest part of their walking? πŸ˜€

  4. Hmm…report card for parenting. Isn’t there enough pressure from society to be a ‘perfect’ parent for you to have to put it on yourself? But it’s great Chirpy is doing well and you are happy with how things are going. I know this is a light hearted post so I won’t get all serious but just be careful of appraising yourself…I see many parents who are later depressed because they don’t meet their own expectations or society’s expectations of what it is to be a parent!

    I know what you mean and I’ll be cautious that I myself don’t put any pressures on self πŸ™‚ but yeah this was in all light mood πŸ˜€

  5. hahahaha! are you sure you arent a school teacher…you reminded me so much of Amma when you did that report card thingie πŸ™‚

    lol no I’m not a school teacher but hey I’m a prof’s wife πŸ˜‰

  6. I am not a mother yet, but I can very well relate to this post.

    I understand what you mean by constantly judging yourself to see if you are being a good mother or not. No one puts that pressure on us, but we do think on those lines.

    true! it’s our inner self…be it on the motherhood front or any other task that we’re doing πŸ™‚

    And, yes, the report card that your baby can give you is the most precious one you can ever get in life, me thinks. More than any graduation or post-graduation report card can be. πŸ™‚

    exactly πŸ™‚

  7. Aiyoo. That is not a report card that I want to see. Everybody’s gonna give me Fs. But I always think I deserve an A+ here πŸ˜‰

    lol @ F? hehehe definitely you deserve A++ πŸ™‚

  8. I think all moms are like that! I’ve seen my mom beam with pride and pleasure when someone praises us sisters!! πŸ˜€
