A tag started by HBM and passed on to me by Itchy. Here are the rules:
Just write a post of your own (five things that you love about being a mom) and find someone to link to and tag-someone from your own country, if you like, but definitely someone from another country, and link back here (at HBM's) and leave a comment.
Five things that I like about being a mother:
(Since all my kids are now officially adult, I can think of stuff which is a distant dream for most young mothers, written here in no particular order.)
1)My kids are old enough to make me cups of tea. They may not be around very often, but when they are they do ply me with cups of tea on request. Three of my kids also drive me around when required. I really love it when the youngest drives me around town, and not around the bend as a teenager is wont to do.
2)I love borrowing my daughters' sarees, the one garment which can fit any size! Since we are in different cities, we have a running saree exchange programme whenever any of us travel.
My girls also spoil me thoroughly with the kinds of baubles I love wearing.
3)We all have loads of things to talk about- from the most trivial to the personal, nothing is taboo.
We can also all laugh ourselves silly over absolutely ridiculous family zokes. ( Yes, that is something just acquired from the older son)
4) In times of crisis, all of my kids are absolutely steadfast rocks. Our solidarity as a family is what keeps us going, coupled with our penchant for gallows humour. It pulls us through.
5) They are wonderfully cheeky and irreverent. I love it, though at times I think a few smacks would be in order.
