I often wonder what is parenthood ? what are its commitments ? What is quality time that we need to spend with our children ? what do we do in this quality time. How we find our ways around parenthood to keep our spark as an individual alive. What are the frustrations and motivations of being a working mother! How to juggle it all!. What responses affect our children in the long term.! what all children remember of us when they grow up and what experiences they do not cherish. It's all an everlasting debate and balancing on a fine thread of helping our children grow up as responsible citizens in life.

To balance those things, you need to have time management. Manage your time well in a way that parenthood and work can both exist smoothly. It's better if you spend real quality time to your family especially if you are very busy. Happy day.

Having a child is the most incredible experience I've had and was beyond my imagination. It is one of those things in life that you simply can't begin to understand until you are there. It is what life is all about. It is a big responsibility. You don't think about yourself. You always put the child first. Being a parent can also be hard. But it is the most rewarding job you will ever have.

I agree, There are moments between you and your child where you amaze yourself seeing a life ( which you have created) right in front of you. The nurturing and tending of this flower takes long before coming to full blossom. The reward is in the journey and the journey is the reward.
