”Starting today, it is me who’ll decide when we get up!” – Baby
Okay, it has been almost four months since I pressed the “Publish” button. I have been on a social hibernation for the last 4 months. And my Alexa Rank … don’t even ask! I stopped at a very good rank and now it has reached a number which I have to work all the way to make it low, low and low.
Well, there is a reason and a very good one for my AWOL. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in December. I thought of getting back to blogging within 40 days, the defined confinement period. However, I was unable to do so. I already had my hands full with ‘Miss A’ and now with ‘Baby A’ (what a coincidence – both girls have names starting with A), I did not find time to breathe. I was still coping with baby blues, a c-section, breastfeeding regimes and not to forget full attention to Miss A, by attending parent-teacher meetings, culminating activities and basically her. All this left me short of time, craving for sleep and me time … and thus my blog suffered.
Last night it took me a lot of courage to log into my account. The first thing I checked was my Alexa rank. I was disappointed to see my rank. I looked at the activities of my fellow blogger friends. While going through my tweets I realised that it is that time of the year when everyone is gearing for A2Z Challenge. Any guesses, what did I do next? I quickly looked for the Blogchatter A2Z. I must say I am lucky since the registrations were open for another day.
The next question – theme. I was literally clueless about what I will be writing and would I get time. But since we are on a 21 days lockdown, I am taking a chance. Miss A does not have school, Baby A is almost 4 month old and my mom is here to help me with the children. Hubby and I do the housework in rotation. This leaves me with some me-time which I am definitely going to give to this baby.
As for the theme I have thought of coming up with 26 posts of what ‘Baby A’ thinks. Wondering, how I am going to do it, I am also thinking the same. I plan to write down about the funny, angry, frustrating and welcoming moments … but with a twist and through the eyes of my baby.
Babies are cute and fun to play with, but more than that they are smart, intelligent and designed to learn from day 1. Babies are way smarter than us and easily work their way around how the world works with being imaginative, flexible and a whole bunch of possibilities to explore.
So yes, I look forward to participating with 26 posts which I have never attempted. Would love to read your feedback, comments and posts.
All the best to everyone #A2ZChallenge #ThemeReveal #BlogchatterA2Z
