Happy Mothers Day to my Amma and all the Mothers of the World today...including me. Well... I am mommy to three dogs and one baby squirrel too.
I don’t think many mothers know of the existence of this day like mine. But she does like the fuss she gets like the flowers given by all of us!
So let me without getting senti wish the most special person in my life today.
Happy Mother’s Day Amma. Hope we made you feel special today. Hope you are happy that you made me peel those irritatingly tiny chakkakurus (jackfruit seeds) for making my favourite chakkakuru maanga curry.
(and this dear people is the reason this post was delayed hmmph)
Thank you God for giving Mademoiselle Leelamma as my mom. I would call this the height of customisation :p
Thank you ma for being such a perfect mom. There is so little of you that irritates me :p
I hope you will be my ma forever cos no one understands me the way you do. Any other mother would have given me up for adoption or left home by now!
Thanks for being such a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, godmother and local guardian to lots of bachchas of the family studying in Bangalore. Maybe you should start a consultancy on being the perfect woman.
Thanks for being a housewife with so much dignity and without losing your individuality and keeping the three men in your life in their places (muahahaha)
I admire you for not being a typical Indian mother by making your sons grate coconut, cut vegetables, water the garden, shop ,clean their rooms and do a hazaar household chores that a lot of Indian guys won’t even dream of doing.
Thanks for giving meaning to the word unselfish, selfless and gullible. I must confess I like the last trait of yours very much :p
And thanks for understanding that I will never be your clone.
I must confess that I have a role model in you. With the necessary changes of course to accommodate the difference in the times we live in.
Thanks for being such a dignified woman. I will always look upto to you for that though I will NEVER be like you because I so love the gossiping and bitching sessions with my friends. And no it does not matter if half the stuff we discuss may not have happened at all. Cut me some slack ma. It is harmless gal talk.
Thanks for being proud of me. People who know you will understand that this is no mean feat to achieve.
I feel so proud that you were voted "Best Mom" by my friends. Coming from teenage girls that has to be the "ultimate" compliment!
And I am sorry that I was/am not plump. And putting up with all those jibes from relations that I was underfed hinting at your mothering skills. I know my ‘weight problems’ were/is the bane of your life.
Thanks for never feeling hurt no matter what I say in irritation. It is really nice to have that one person in my life who will never misunderstand me or sulk on me.
And thanks for bearing up with all my bear hugs and being such a cuddly mom. I love you plump. (egads I can’t imagine having a pencil thin mom!!!)
And since this post will be printed and given to you by chetan, I want you to know that it is high time you made some payasam :p
This is my 150th post here. What a coincidence that it is Mothers Day too! And so bring out your handkerchief ma for this post is dedicated to you :)
