Mama’s Instinct

By: Ashley Verma | Published: January, 2023

Call me crazy but I have always led with going with my gut feeling. Not just with parenting but overall in life. When something is off, 9 times out of 10 it’s pretty freaking rotten. However, when its right, boy oh boy does it feel like a huge win.

We started Adiya at a school this year that ticked the boxes of being an impressive international school but really wasn’t going to set her up fully for self developmental success. I was hesitant but off we went. The school was nice and strict on rules. One rule being, No Juice, and just water only. Now, Adiya has never been a water drinker and so we fight the battle with fresh apple juice heavily diluted with good old water. She essentially went 3 full school days of no liquids and she ate very, very little. I would actually pick her up and she would come running crying saying ‘Mommy, Mommy, APPLE JUICE!’. Needless to say, she became fully dehydrated and extremely ill. We even ended up in the emergency room with her.

I pulled her from going to this particular school and immediately enrolled her into another school. Just the initial meet & greet and tour, Adiya was thriving and I was equally smiling.

Adiya has been thriving at her new school for 10 days now. It’s been a huge sigh of relief for us. To watch Adiya make friends, learn, strengthen her communication skills, and not running & crying at pick-up is the ultimate high-five for going with my gut instincts and changing her school. She is where she needs to be for now.

Parenthood is not an easy journey. It’s easy to brush a mother’s feeling aside by saying it’s anxiety, overthinking or mood swings but stand strong my Bizzimumzi’s…. Trust your instincts as they are probably right.

The maternity leave system in Spain stands out to me as the biggest difference. In the US, I had two c-section deliveries and after burning through my limited "sick" and "vacation days" was left to finish my maternity leave while not collecting any sort of income.
