My water nymph…my Nyda…


They say, there is only one perfect baby in this world…and every mother has it! Cynical me often questioned how one could be so attached to a new member in the family so fast…think it to be the most beautiful thing in the world….always thought that new borns grew good looking only after a few days.

And then I had you. My biggest fear in life has always been childbirth…never thought that I would have the guts to go through it. So when I lay there recuperating, in a trance, and the doctor brought you to me for a quick look….you had me at first glance! You were the most beautiful thing that I had ever seen in my entire life. And I could not believe that you were mine.

It’s been 4 days now, and each morning when I wake up and hold you in my arms, I marvel at the miracle that you are. Your perfect little nose, fingers that wrap themselves around mine…your chubby cheeks, a lil frown when you don’t like something…and a smile that you bless me with when you’re dreaming of your past lives as a princess. You make us all dance around you trying to get one little nod of appreciation….and you have us wrapped around your teeny tiny little toe!

I’ve  not done many things of significance in my life. But in creating you, I redeem myself. There is only one perfect baby in this world…and if you look in my heart, you will realise my doll that she is you!!
