Had been wanting to do a post like this from so long. Also it puts an end to all the queasy looks people give when I disclose that I have a daughter . Really ? How big ? Man I never knew that, tilting their heads in angles which I am discovering just about recently. Clearly I don't fit the stereotype of how a mother looks like.As of now we can say that I am blessed to have happy genes.
My Mom(Resting in Heaven), had hair like mine(which of course y'all love) My friends say that I smile like her, and my daughter has her eyes. She was a fashionista too in her own classic days. A school teacher by profession, with me as her most intolerant student. She loved her Sari's and had one in every color, ----colors, that now we find only in Pantone. I secretly used to put on her bindis,just before going out to play with my friends. A few made fun, until I thought it was getting too much, and confined Bindi dressing to my bedroom later. She loved Bindis too.
When I grew up, and started exploring make-up, and bought some too after my first job paid me well, I had never seen anyone so enthusiastic about putting on makeup than her.She told her friends, "My daughter has the best make-up skills." I used to blushingly pinch her and always brushed my elbows with hers, telling her to stop publicly displaying my knack. I was shy. She was too, and my daughter just alike.
Mom was too young when cancer hit her. With all the adversities that came along, symptoms, and hair loss, it was me who still loved brushing my makeup on to her to hide her afflicted look. I saw her age into a seventy year old when she was in her forties. Wish could have made her look young. But my knowledge was limited and so were the developments in skin care.
Ever wished that you could turn back the time ? Every Mother's day I wish the same-Just once. But you know what - If she was here today to witness your surprising glares on my motherhood, I am pretty damn sure about her display of verbal gymnastics to her friends- Yes - My daughter looks the best in her time.
