A child, like a miracle, brings a drastic change in our life. A change which the whole family looks forward to, a change for which we time and again thank God. Let us count the reasons why we need to celebrate this day. Or so to say why should we celebrate every day, every moment of childhood.

Celebrate the joys of childhood

Celebrate the tears of joy when your child called you ‘ma’ for the first time, the pride when he or she took his or her first step, the love that flowed when he or she made a card for you, the warmth whenever he or she slept in your lap. Celebrate the expected and all the unexpected joys your child gives you.

Celebrate the pains of childhood

The sleepless nights, the messy bedroom, your child’s tantrums, your loss of freedom celebrate all the things you wish you could change about bringing up children but cannot.

Celebrate the fun of childhood

Making different shaped sand-wiches for your child, watching Tom and Jerry with him, laughing at his silly jokes and even sillier questions – celebrate the sunshine your child has brought to your world.

Celebrate the beauty of childhood

Getting wet in the rain, dancing like a monkey, writing your name on the mist on window panes, playing pranks celebrate the chance you have got to relive your childhood through your child.

Celebrate the power of childhood

Remember all the times when a hug from your child relieved you of all your tensions, all the times when he or she reminded you of your wrongs and helped you become a better human being, all the times when you experienced pure love. Doesn’t your child remind you all the time that as long as you have him or her, you have everything? So let us celebrate childhood.
