Pexels Kelvin Agustinus 1096141Myself and my friend Gita were teaching in #private school. Gita got married and went to US with her husband. In US Gita joined  Ph.D #program in #Biotechnology department of university. Initially she used to send regular #emails to me describing her university and quality of #teaching. I was very happy for her. But after one year or so I suppose she got so busy with her #research assignment that she will hardly get anytime to answer my emails.

Suddenly after long gap of two #decades, one day I got email from Gita. She informed me that she is #blessed with son. I was very happy to hear good news that she became mother at age of 48.

Gita came to India. I and my family were very happy to see Gita her husband and her son. Gita looked very graceful and “A Mature” mom.  We had great fun together and we loved going #swimming. One day as we were putting on our shoes at the #entrance to the family change room at our local pool, a curious boy of about 5 years said asked Gita: “Are you his grandma?” “No”. she explained, “I’m his mom.” The little boy look confused and #continued staring. A few minutes later he couldn’t control himself. “Are you sure you are not his grandma?” the boy insisted. “Yes…I’m pretty sure! “said Gita.

 8 year boy’s old’s face lit up. He thought this was #Hilarious!.  My self and Gita came back home, Gita’s son continued to call his mother #grandma for the rest of the day, laughing every time he said it.

I found Gita was very cool and good mother to her kid. I was so happy to find out that Gita’s #husband also had young spirit. He would play all sorts of games with his kid. Gita and her husband were #wonderful parents and took care of each and every need of their child. They were good at #micro management and were loved by their kid. Even my children were very friendly with aunt Gita and her husband.

Moral of Story-. There are young parents who don’t make #great parents. There are some #old parents that make wonderful parents. So it is not age that matters, but the quality of #parenting that is precious.
