She cried because she feels your feelings so deeply and shares your pain and your happiness, whether you realized it or not. She wanted that last bite of food. She knew it would make her much happier to fill your little tummy as full as it could be. When you grabbed her with those sharp couldn't-be-trimmed fingernails, and when you pulled her hair and her earrings. You stretched her tummy for nine months and bruised her when you kicked.
You made her body contract in unbearable pain as you entered this world, and many times thereafter. She was always scared. From the moment she found out you were coming into this world, she did everything in her power to protect you. She was that mom who cringed when that unreliable little girl next door wanted to hold you, and sometimes even said no.
In her mind no one could keep you as safe as she could. She was your mama bear, after all. Her heart skipped two beats with your first steps, fearful of that first fall. She stayed up way past her bedtime to make sure you got home safe, and woke up early to get you ready for school.
With every little trip or stumble, she was always nearby. With every nightmare or fever, she was there to keep you safe and healthy. She is her own worst critic. Though, she's hardest on herself when it comes to you. She watched you at your most peaceful state. There were nights when she could hardly keep her eyes open, her arms and legs were achey and she was begging you to fall asleep. She would be up until 3: You needed her and she was always there.
She learned to hold you when she was doing household chores, she held you while she ate, she even held you while she took a nap.
Her arms would get tired, her back would ache, but she still snuggled you, held you close, and loved you more than anything else. She kissed you, played with you, gave you all she could because you wanted to be near her.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 03, Privy Trifles rated it really liked it Shelves: The biggest reason for choosing this book for review was its quirky name. It tempted me as it seemed to be the most unheard of all things and yet the most wanted to hear thing. In this book the author, Juhi Pande has talked about the most obvious things in life and most of the time the most neglected as well — relationships.
We, having lived in Indian society are so used to not discussing things like love and relationships openly with parents. And perhaps that is where the author drew inspiration The biggest reason for choosing this book for review was its quirky name.
And perhaps that is where the author drew inspiration for the title. She has dealt with the subject so beautifully and without sounding preachy. That is exactly where the beauty of this book lies. The simplicity and easy-to-understand language used connects a reader more to this book.
I loved reading it for it felt as if a girl friend of mine was having a conversation with me, sharing her experiences. Never for once did I feel that it is getting a bit too preachy and boring. It was heart to heart. I believe this is how self help books should be actually as you are supposed to help someone and not bombard with your sense of knowledge. Simplicity is the key and the author works on it perfectly.
Some points made me smile, some made me laugh crazily while some made my eyes moist as I thought of those times when I done those mistakes.

Divided into 18 chapters, the author speaks about different aspects of love and infatuation that every girl goes through during the teenage years. The author being a girl and have gone through this herself, one would think that it must have been an easy task to write a book about it.

Overall, this non-fiction makes for an interesting read. Feb 19, Yatin Gupta rated it really liked it. To be brutally honest, I would have never ever thought about picking a book with a title like in this even in my worst of nightmares.
But then something about the title of this book appealed to me, I just picked this book from a long list of books that I received from Random House. I started reading it as soon as I received it and absolutely loved it.
