Am really tempted to add that to my resumé. I do realize any prospective employer might look at it in disdain and remark, 'so did my mother', or 'so did I'...and so did the lions in Africa or the penguins in the Arctic... any sceptics who read this might add, and added to the planet's woes by increasing the load a bit more.....but the point remains...that when I look at it from even during a really clinical OBE, it seems bloody marvellous!
Personally for moi, to think that the being inside who used to do cartwheels exactly when I was in the middle of a rather solemn and vacuous meeting or who stuck her feet out in a 'Present, Ma'am' way, when I patted around the premises, my constant companion on the dreary and long cab ride back home in the sweltering heat and non-stop FM, to our first face-to-face in the OT...that tiny red squawling thing that looked like a shrivelled squirrel to this little person of 2 years of the incredible curly mop, the killer smile, who throws tantrums, dances to film songs and tries to spell everything she sees in her own language, the most beautiful thing in this world...to think, she will have a life of her own in another couple of years, friends, crushes, learn new things, deploy strategies to combat ozone depletion, the works...it is bloody marvellous!!!
Well, it does help, that today's one of the good days when she has cooperated with the meals and the naps...hence, the gush...
on a bad day, I would be advising the uninitiated not to commit harakiri and not to *ever ever* harbour any maternal or paternal thoughts...you will be sleep-deprived for atleast the first 3 years, not remember what it is to have a conversation with an adult if you decide to work from home or not work at all, have a house that resembles a war zone at any time of the day, have odd bits of goo on your t-shirt, crayons in your hair...and I am not even touching on the tantrums here.
for the uninitiated again, its a bit like owning a character or a bunch of them in the Sims, only a zillion times more exhilarating, educating and nerve-wracking...
still, bloody marvellous!
