Over the Weekend…

It's official…My mom is going back to lead her 'own' life…To her credit, if there is one person other than my lovin' hubby and ever positive grandma that I should be thankful to, then it is her. Afterall, she left behind my dad and uprooted herself to a different city for nearly ten months…No one else I know of will do that for me…

 

My son adores her…Whether it is my failure or my mom's success or neither, the fact remains that my child's world revolves around my mom…and I was totally ok with it…Unlike lot of working moms that I know of, I never wanted the best of both worlds…I never expected that my mom will be the major caregiver, but as soon as he sees me my son will forget all about her and spend all the rest of the time with me…I am happy as long as he is happy…I firmly believe that if you want your child to consider you 'God' then you need to be there for him/her…at least when they are really young…afterwards, they may appreciate the sacrifice that you made by keeping a job (yes, I believe both keeping a job as well as leaving one requires a certain amount of sacrifices!) …Anyway, point being, I am scared…I have never handled the baby by myself for extended periods of time ever since he was born..(the maximum being 3-4 days) There is no way I am even remotely thinking of leaving my job, and that means the only person who is likely to suffer the consequences of my mom's hasty decision is my child…I am thinking of ways in which I can minimize the impact…

 

On other news, this weekend has the prospect of either being really good or really lousy! Hubby has gone off to Kasargode in the pretext of a conference and my mom is going to my sister's place today…which means I am 'home alone' with my kid…I am wondering how to make the best of it! I have a car and a chauffeur at my disposal..And my child loves to travel…he hates shopping though, so that is thoroughly out of question…Maybe, I will take him to a coffee shop and enjoy coffee and pastries with him…My wallet as well as my waistline can still afford that :P
