PARENTING SOCIETY & CUSTOMS

I wanted a baby girl but God knew I need a Boy

i wanted a baby girl

Even before we planned our first baby, I wanted a Baby girl. Even till the last push, I wished for a girl.

As soon as the baby was out, I asked my surgeon if its a girl or a boy while I was crossing my fingers. I wanted to hear “It’s a girl”.

 

But God had some other plans for me, God knew I need a boy and not a girl.

Not to stay with me in the old age, not to take care of outdoor work, not to protect our family, not to take our family surname forward but to prove my point.

 

I always had something about gender bias. I just can’t take it.

Include me in a debate on any topic involving gender inequality and I cannot stop. Though I have willingly stopped from involving in such controversial discussions even then I cannot witness the same as a silent observer.

 

I think by gifting me a baby boy, God gave me a chance to prove my point.

God gave me a chance to set an example.

God gave me a chance to apply what all I say.

 

Now, I am so grateful that I have a boy and here are the few things I want to see in him:

    I heard that parenting can be hard but when you yourself set a perfect example of life through your deeds and actions children catch up automatically. I am cent percent sure that your son will have a striking example to look up on in his life!

    Want and need are poles apart. We eventually end up getting what we need and it is always for our good. Loved the way your expressed it here. short and crisp

    I feel girls become bff with moms! I’m! Although, i definitely believe that God blesses us with what he thinks we need, as you said 🙂

    That is such a wonderful way to look at it,Upasna. Kudos to your positive thinking. Your Son will be very proud of you when he grows up and realises this thought and intention.

    Upasana…you reflected my situation ditto!!! But then, as you rightly said, God had different plans. He wanted me to take efforts in shaping up the world that I wished as a girl, in my own little way! GOD wanted me to educate a life with the equality and bring in the change with baby steps.

      We are in the same boat Anagha. Thanks for the read and supporting my thoughts. Yes, a big change begins with small steps.

    You echo my sentiments with your post. Being mothers of boys, we have the responsibility to shape up our boys in the way we like this world to be.

      Yes Anamika, Its a big responsibility. I hope I would be able to come out as a winner.
