Woke up early this morning and as usual the little N too woke up with me.. Quickly finished her early morning routine feeding then brushing and rushed to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. As it’s a Saturday K(Mr. Husband) is still in sleep mode. I close the door so he doesn’t gets disturbed. I get busy with the breakfast preparation. While little N is busy emptying the kitchen cabinets I try to finish cooking.. N whoa! M done ! K is still sleeping….Phew!!
I start feeding little N and as soon as she takes the first bite she runs away.I get her back. Give her the second bite and again she tries and escapes. I do the same again. The third time she succeeds and runs way calling Nana (the father/Mr.Husband), may be to rescue her🙄
She gets into the bedroom and runs towards K. And as he is in deep sleep she gets a chance to play with his spectacles ( the only way for him to see the world).And she has broken it already (By the way she loves to play with anything but her toys 😐). K is up and gets furious and sad at the same time. His only pair of spectacles is now broken. He calls me to come and see what happened. I was not so surprised by the act. I was already a little irritated and blurted out something out of anger. K gets even more furious and shouts back at me.
I quietly walk away to the kitchen to get him breakfast…doing some thinking at the same time. Why did I shout? Why did I lose my temper? May be it’s our fault that we didn’t keep an eye on her. Lil N is too small to understand the importance of anything . She doesn’t understand anything other than love.
All this while she stands quietly watching both of us … May be expecting one of us to pick her up n hold her tight… She knew something went wrong. K quickly cools himself down and picks her up, Hugging her tight. Comes to me and we do a family hugging. It’s a daily ritual😊
And now lil N happily finishes her breakfast and gets busy with playing, leaving both of us to have our breakfast.
My point is – Anger doesn’t make things better. It in fact worsens things further.
Moral- Keep your important stuffs at a safe place if you have a toddler 😉(So you don’t regret later)
Second thoughts – Let them be the way they are. Love them lavishly. 🙂
