When I spill milk, food, colors on the floor, my parents don’t rush to chide me and spank me but tell me it is wrong and then allow me to play and have fun too. Many times dad joined me when playing with spilled water, food and all this is a part of growing me. So let your children behave like a child too 🙂
Everyday morning dad cleans up my living room and sets my toys up in a stack before the maid comes for cleaning. I leave my toys all over the place before retiring to bed early morning. Sometimes I wake up again to play. Dad’s morning routine has changed after instated walking playing and throwing things around. He likes doing it. Mom relaxes in the morning as she has to mind me all day and run behind me. Dad is slightly more handsfree type and let’s me explore more comfortably.
Here is a rare shot of my room clean and all set to start playing for the day. I don’t get tired easily and am really good at keeping myself busy. Dad makes breakfast (easy ones), gives me snacks and milk, tea and gets ready and once mom is up we both bid him good bye and return to play again.
How do you start your day?
See how many toys I have? Or do you see how much havoc I can create in the living room? I love spreading all things around the hall and going around playing with all of them till I get tired. I like the small sized toys which fit in my hand and I like playing with boxes, baskets, steel items and anything that goes in my path.
This pic is taken at 3 AM and dad was watching over while mom was resting. And mom wakes up and plays with me till dad goes to work. I am a handful and am too busy all the time, especially at the night 🙂
I am down with cold for the last two days and am running high fever. That doesn’t mean I am moaning or nagging mommy and daddy to care for me. I am a grown up girl and have amazing patience and perseverance in handling problems. Dad says he is proud of me and mom says I am very brave and strong.
Now you know that mom and dad don’t medicate me often and let the illness stay and let my body fight on its own. As my fever didn’t come down in two days dad decided to give me some 1 ml of Calpol to bring the temperature down and some T-minic to stop the nose irritation. With some nice oil massage and hot water bath my fever was brought under control. I was too weak to play or go running around which I love to do.
Nanamma called and prayed for me and applied oil and I am fine by God’s grace.
When dad used to come down with fever nanamma used to give him mutton stock or hot chicken soup and dad tried that on me when I was about eight months old and it worked! Since then you know what my favourite medicine is!
Some hot mutton stock mom prepared along with some hugging and keeping me warm brought me right back up. I am back to playing with ally toys which I missed in the last two days and as dad types this for me I am playing and singing rhymes with mom.
Thank you all for your love, affection and prayers. Peace and the Lord’s blessing be with you and your family.
I am so active that you got to look at me to believe. I am very agile, mobile and explorative. I don’t leave any nook and corner of the house and finally come to mom for a refill of toys. So once I finish playing with all my toys, I feel bored. To keep me from getting bored, mom designs a busy basket every day for me. The busy basket has many surprises in store. Each of these is carefully crafted by mom and is a mixture of things for me to hold, touch, smell, taste and explore. Sometimes the basket has all vegetables, toys and combinations, sometimes it is the turn of colorful papers, bits, clothes and toys.
Did I tell you my mumma is so creative and all that came from me when I was in her tummy 😀
