The training wheels are off! Yes, parents have gone back and we are all alone trying to get adjusted to our baby. Aa is used to exclusive attention from her maternal GPs. Naturally. She’s been with them since birth and their sudden absence is affecting her. And us.
My parents left yesterday and immediately it felt as if the whole house is gonna eat me up. I was all tears yesterday. Every nook and corner of my home reminds me of my parents. It was easy with them around. They took care of Aa while I ran errands around the house or vice versa. The emptiness is palpable.
I was skeptical on how my day would turn out. Surprisingly, it went well. Aa is a good child and is gorgeously cute. I am not saying this because she is my child. She is (thankfully & touchwood) not cranky/ colicky as some babies tend to be. If she missed her GPs, she didn’t show it. Not today. (Yesterday, KK had a hell of a time trying to console a weepy wife and a screaming infant. – More about that later.) I have gained a lot of confidence and have tweaked out some points where I can better myself.
Aa is manageable. Housework is manageable. The only thing that I dread is the cooking part. It’s been more than a year since I touched those pots and pans. I have no courage. Husband is very understanding, hence there is some relief.
I had mentioned earlier; way back, I think; that I wanted to start practicing Yoga. I have started now. It’s once a week class (joined for 4 classes, 3 are up already)!!! I might just extend those for I find immense relief from my upper back ache.
Also, I am seriously thinking of shedding those post partum kilos. I know I am sooo late! Better late than never though! I was heavy at 67 kgs! (Imagine that?!) Now I am 64! (Imagine that?!) And no, I am not ashamed to shout my weight out loud.
This weight loss kind of just happened. I did not plan it. Maybe I shed them while sorting, resorting and setting up my abode. I am planning a healthy diet for myself. Not I-will-not-eat-anything-until-I-die diet. Just a healthier one, which will give me energy to last the whole long day with Aa. My ideal goal point is within the range of 52-54 kilos.
I badly want to fit into my old clothes!!!
With that our (mine and KK’s and now Aa’s) second innings have begun. We are trying to fit in. Trying to do as much possible to ease out creases. All this while, Aa is a huge cutester and entertainment. Her antics keep us amused and even if we are dead tired, she doesn’t fail to bring a smile on our face! That’s life!
With that I embark on my month long blogging journey. Hope you will accompany me, encourage and give me feedback as well.
