Mothers are forever wrecked in guilt that they are not able to spend enough time with their children. The author feels ‘time’ is the best gift a parent could give a child.

On the occasion of Children’s Day, I thought of gifting something to my daughter. Almost half a day of dedicatedly wrecking my brains, I concluded “TIME” would be the best gift, that she would adore.

My dear daughter, ever since you turned 6 months old, I know I left you in the hands of a trusted nanny and through all the playgroups and your toys and gadgets, you still despised me leaving the house, and greeted me with an amazing smile when I would come back.

I have always felt guilty of not being able to give you enough time, though I try as much as possible even if it means having a really busy weekend. I still try beyond my energies to keep up with your demands!

My afternoon naps are always disturbed by your incessant questions and requests to tell you a story and still, it’s my favourite place to be!

I have to confess something. Slowly you are growing up to be this lovely person and it reinstates my faith in my capabilities as a parent. During my last vacation, I got to know you a little better. You have developed an amazing fashion sense and influenced me too during all our shopping trips.

Your faith in my strength as a mom, is getting stronger and your belief, that I can make everything right for you, makes me feel stronger than ever. In you, I have found a perfect companion, who shares my interests of exploring and satiating my curiosity by exploring what this world has to offer.

Everytime I see you smile I am filled with surreal energy. Hope you don’t let the twinkle in your eyes dwindle with the expectations of this world.
 I love you my little girl and more than you, I love the time I spend with you because it helps me to connect with myself.
