As usual I was more excited , happy , energetic to take Nandu to her preschool. Like all mothers does , I told her that I will be leaving her in her school , where she will get lots of friends and she can play with many toys . She was listening to me all the time as we were on our way to her school with her dad.
As soon as we were nearing her school my heart started pounding faster, out of excitement. Many questions flashed my mind , regarding what will happen if she starts to cry ? what if she doesn’t want to go inside? What will i do if she keeps calling ” amma ammma ” ?
Oh those thoughts made me shiver, I didn’t know how to react . As I was told by many other experienced mothers I should stay calm and let her go in and even if she cries , it will be all for a while. I was prepared by the time we reached the school. We rang the bell and the door opened and her teacher came and greeted all of us.
Nandu seemed to be excited , but she was holding my hand , I too didn’t want to leave her hand as I was feeling nervous.It was as if my first day at school , then her teacher asked her whether Nandu would love to come in and play with other kids inside.
It was just as quick as a blink of an eye , and Nandu took her hands and left mine and went in to the school and waved us bye . I was like lost , all of a sudden I felt I became lonely . But where my words didn’t express my tears cheated me, it was running down my cheeks and my Nandoos dad couldn’t stop laughing.
It was all my decision to put her in school , so that she can enjoy and its all me who is crying on the very first day and not her.I had a mixed feeling going on inside me, I just wanted to run back to the school and hug her , but another feeling me said not to do so. Still out of all these mixed emotions I ran back to school , just to see her and I was happy to see her playing there.
That day for me every minute was like miles away, I didn’t go home , and was lingering around the place . At last I called up her school after 2 hours and asked whether I can pick her then. The moment the school door was opened my eyes were searching for my lovely lil angel and she came running to me and hugged me tightly.
I am sure every mom must have felt what I had felt. Seriously motherhood is strange.
Hurray to all Mothers!!
