My Baby Does Everything #JustLikeMom


It is said, “There is no way to be a perfect mom, but a million ways to be a good one”.

But for me I would say my mom is the perfect one and she follows only one rule to be the perfect one – do everything the perfect way!

I believe that setting a good example for kids is what parenting is all about. And this thought gives me the fuel to get everything done in the right way, just like my mom did.

I recently made a flower vase out of an old paper tube. I painted it neatly in black and drew small white flowers for detailing. As I did this, my keen-eyed little pie watched intently.

He too wanted to make him own flower vase, just like the one I’d made, and so I gave him a paper tube and a few colors to try out for himself.

To my surprise he nailed it almost perfectly!

A soon to be preschooler who is just getting acquainted with holding pencils the right way, he surprised me with a fully hand painted flower vase! And that too complete with the little flower detailing I’d done for the other vase. A perfect match!

Yes… yes… looks like he already has a knack for getting things done the right way. I am delighted to see that he looks up to me, the same way I look up to my mom.

But I must admit that the whole business was a mess.

Once the vase was all done, there were paint stains all around. The floor, his favorite dress, all splattered with paint.


Despite this, I was deeply satisfied to have given him an opportunity to nurture his creative side.  His little hands had done the magic. And watching him painting had put a really big smile on my face – a smile that all the stains or the mess around me couldn’t wipe out!

Why worry about stains when you have Surf excel matic?  It gives you a hand-wash as good as mom’s hand-wash.
