My Daughter and I


 

My Daughter and Me

My daughter and I

We do things together

My daughter and I

All of 4 and a half is she

I’m on the wrong side of the 35

She’s as perky as can be

I’m getting old, I sigh.

 

We do things together

My daughter and I

Carefully she watches me

As I dab on lipstick

Can I try? she asks with glee

Not yet, grow up quick!

 

We do things together

My daughter and I

‘You need clothes new –

Take mine – I will share!”

She looks fresh as dew

& Gives me her shirt to wear!

 

We do things together

My daughter and I

Hey Amma – did you eat?

She’s chewing toffee & says

Here, take my sweet

My darling baby, she cares!

 

We do things together

My daughter and I

 Best friends forever

My daughter and I

 

PS: Watch out for my next post on: My Son and I – coming up next month!

Like most mothers she knows, Ramya juggles between finding something that satisfies her inner self and doing something that satisfies her family! Mother of two children, a boy and a girl, her parenting philosophy is not so much to be a popular, cool parent as to bring them up with values that she holds dear. When not donning her 'amma' hat, she switches between being 'manager of Digital Learning at IIMB', 'payer of bills', 'cook', 'cleaner' and 'reader of PG Wodehouse and Georgette Heyer.'

    Lovely one Ramya! Yes, somewhere along the way your daughter does become your best friend, doesn’t she? And that affection and caring never dies! I know that I was my mom’s best friend and my six year old already knows all my secrets – the ones that she is mature enough to understand, that is!

    Great Poem! I like it! Did the love for your daughter made you a poet? Or had you been one even earlier? I like lovers of poetry. Best wishes!

    Lovely piece, Ramya. I have two boys, who are now 11 and 14 years-old. They grow up so quickly! Although parenting is still very interesting and rewarding as they get older, I treasure my memories of those early years.
