I quit my corporate job (a rather plush one at that in one of India’s leading MNCs) after my daughter was born and started something on my own soon after so I could balance work and being with her.
My little firecracker is just over two and boy can she keep me on my toes! She already has a mind of her own about everything including what she wants to wear or eat and God help me if I don’t relent… And to think I built a career on communication! (There was this one time that she insisted on wearing a thick woolen jacket in June). And then there is this other side to her which tells me to drink water if ever I cough or this one time when I fell from a toy of hers (which was literally just 4 inches off the ground and don’t ask me why I was on it) and she held me and weeped for good 15 mins while I was trying to laugh and tell her that I was absolutely fine.
My time with her is exhausting, fun and so precious all at the same time and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world.
