Look Mamma! A heartfelt message from twin toddler's diary

Look Mamma! A heartfelt message from twin toddler’s diary

Spread the love
Look, Mamma! We are growing up way too fast,
Please go slow and let’s savor these moments till our childhood lasts

Your office, writing, kitchen and other chores can wait,
Come, sit with us, don’t bother about the hot meals on our plate

Bear with our meltdowns, mood swings and the tantrums we throw,
We may not be the same and you will miss them all, as we grow

Cuddle us, tickle us a little more and let’s play peek-a-boo,
Soon, you will be able to take shower in peace without worrying about us, entering the loo

Let us dig in your chest while you tuck us to bed every night,
And doze off humming Chanda Mama, as your voice is a sheer delight

See, we are learning to keep our room tidy sans mess,
As we grow up, we promise, your twincesses’ will need you less

Please indulge in our drama and resolve our fights as a referee,
Mamma, you have all the coming years to sleep carefree

Don’t lose your temper when we get on your nerves,
Calm us down, hug us, for these are the moments to preserve

Mamma, we know everyone calls us your double trouble,
Please don’t listen to them, let’s continue to live in our own bubble

One day, we won’t be stubborn and beg you for chocolates and lollipops,
As we become self-sufficient, you’ll be free from our school picks and drop

See, how time has flown by and we are almost four,
Once we outgrow your lap, there will be nostalgia galore

We won’t be asking you to put on the cartoon and sing us baby shark,
School, activity classes will soon replace our visits to the park

As we fly from the nest and bury ourselves in studies and books
Mamma, you will take out our toys and embrace them with a blurred look.

Loved this Vartika. Kids grow and while we are busy for mundane things of life. LAter we cry over time gone.
I felt similar emotions and penned a letter earlier.

My eyes asked up on rainy this. My son is almost the same age and I could relate so well. The fear of him outgrowing my lap is real and I could live it through your blog.

Such a beautiful post. I know there are ups and downs in the journey of parenting. However, these memories last a lifetime and later when each one flashes it is rather a treat to remember them. Loads of love to the twins. #MyFriendAlexa #ShubhraReads

The mother-child moments are simply beautiful. Loved reading the message of your twinnies

September 17, 2019 11:09 pm

Vartika, usually I don’t get emotional when reading any post as I know its just a post. But this post brought tears into my eyes. I could feel it. Now when my daughter is in her pre-teens and my son is going to be 3.5, I can completely understand what you want to convey. Yes, everything can wait. Childhood will not come back. I miss my daughter’s childhood days. But I can’t stop her from growing right?I am lucky to have my toddler with whom I can still be a kid. But very soon he will also be a big… Read more »


[…] Mornings in our house are full of love, kisses, cuddles, tears, promises, and hugs. It looks like a man, well-armed, is going off to the war, kissing and hugging his kids with a promise to be back soon in the evening. After that last promising hug, my twin toddlers run to the main door to see off their Superman and taking the last glimpse as he heroically drives off to his job. And then starts the real game as they turn back to me as if to say, “So what’s the plan…it’s just you and us again Mommy“. […]

Well written Vartika. Thos toddler days are so hectic for a mom but those will go soon. So, it’s good to make memories.

Awww that’s such a lovely and cute post.

November 20, 2019 6:50 pm

Such a beautiful and amazing post..Children bring so much happiness and love in our lives..
The last paragraph kind of sums up how we postpone living our life waiting for an unknown time in the future…But then it is too late..

“As we fly from the nest and bury ourselves in studies and books
Mamma, you will take out our toys and embrace them with a blurred look…”

So touching…

This is exactly my fear. What if the children suddenly grow up and they no longer need me in their lives.

This writeup took me to voyage of childs feeling & i can see many lines related to zumi’s emotions. Beautifully crafted the topic.

November 26, 2019 8:37 am

Awww… this left me teary eyed. We really don’t realise how much our children value the time with us, do we? And soon, they will grow up and not need us so much anymore! Beautifully penned.

Don’t lose temper is something that I will have to keep on my mind. This is so emotional .
Hoping time slows down to help me reminiscing this moment.
