You want to spoil him/her completely, you want the child to have every toy on the planet, you want him to be raised in the greatest possible environment.
In your office break, you often go on the internet and read articles on pregnancy related care. You try your best to guide your sister, spend time with her, get her gifts and be as nice as possible with her.
Even if you have to attend an important board meeting, you will not miss this for the world!
Yes they are adorable, but they also drool, they poop, they vomit and they cry, a lot. But you still dote over them anyways.

From morning to night, you cannot risk leaving them unattended even for a minute and that equals to the perfect workout.
Your watches, your favourite mobile cover, your phone and all your other valuable possessions are not yours anymore once the toddler sets his/her eyes on them.
Children are silent and quick observers and so, you choose your words and actions wisely because you know that there is someone carefully following your every move.
And you realise this once the little one comes into your life. Magic does happen and kisses can shoo away the biggest of wounds!
The child’s first words, his/her first visit to the park, the way the child smiles at you, all these little things start meaning the world to you and thus, you start appreciating life more.
Gifts, chocolates, chips, toys, ice creams, muffins, all that is unhealthy but yummy, all that is expensive but fun to play with is what you get for your favourite kid in the world.
You sometimes just pray for the child to take some rest and stop goofing around, but as soon as there is pin drop silence and he/she is nowhere to be seen, you know that it could possibly be a ‘911’ situation!
Spoiling them is your job, but cleaning the poop is the creator’s job. Period!
Usually, you do not really get irritated with their naughtiness and you have developed the patience to tolerate them. But, even on the instances when you do lose your patience, you cannot say anything to them.

Whether you had a bad day at work, fought with your girlfriend/partner, seem to be little under the weather; whatever the problem might be, once you take the little one in your hands, all your worries fly out the window.
Whether you may like kids or not, after spending so much time with your niece/nephew, you start imagining what your life would be after you have your own kids and deep down in your heart, you want that time to come soon. You somehow feel you are ready.
They are the most precious people to you on the planet right now. You feel like doing everything possible to protect them and always keep them happy. They are now priority!
Even if you come back late from office after a hard day at work, if the kid wants to play, you play. Is it even possible to say no to that cute puppy face?
