A married couple is also addressed as life partners, and that is so true as after marriage you are sharing your life with someone. But for my husband and me, it actually started after we became parents. After the birth of our child, we realized how it is not just about thinking alike but thinking together and working as a team.
We moms always strive to be the best for our children and always make sure to give them everything in our capacity. But in this whole journey of motherhood, there are times when I feel exhausted, confused, anxious, and have mood swings. Each and every time there is one person who fixes it - that is none other than my husband.
I could not be where I am today without his support. Becoming a parent is not just a totally different experience for me but for him too. Parenting is not just about being a mother or father but partners who support each other and work as a team.
It is a known fact that during pregnancy and childbirth, women go through a lot of changes physically, mentally and emotionally. This is also a life-changing experience for a man as for him too it's a totally new world called parenting. The journey towards parenting introduced me to a totally new person. A person who is more lovable, a person who is more responsible, a person who is more caring, a person who is called dad now. I got to know a different side of his personality in this journey from being husband to becoming a father.
So it is not just ME but it is WE when it comes to parenting. Being each other's support system in the ups and downs of life, we can give our kids a better and happy environment.
Happy parenting to all the moms and dads out there.
