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 🙂
~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 😉
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 ?
