You are my sunshine..
My only sunshine
This morning, you woke up before me. I was still asleep. You were cradled in my arms. You turned over, propped up on your stomach, raised up your head and lay there looking straight at me. For what felt like a good 5-10 minutes. I was still all dazed. Then you reached out, and touched my face. And started cooing to me. “Mommy.. Mommy.. wat you doing mommy.. wake up mommy.. Juno wants to play”..if you could, I swear those would be the words you’d say. I opened my groggy eyes. You realise and instantly perk up. Your little head bobbing near my shoulder. A wide grin. Pudgy little hand swatting at my face. All thrilled and excited. “Mommy, lets go.., its a new day…”. And we lay there smiling at each other. I turned you over, curled you in, and tried to urge you to go back to sleep. But you’d have none of it. 5 seconds and you were wiggling and squirming. You wiggle away, turn over and again sit there eyeing me. I pat you and pull you down hoping you’d sleep. 5 minutes later, you settle down a bit. And I’m thrilled!!! Yeeeeeeeeeah! Some more shut eye. .But then you’re unusually quite. You’re face down, snuggled into some pillows. And I pull them away to see what you’re upto. I find you coolly munching away at the sheets! Apparently you think that’s the best way to brush your teeth in the morning. 🙂
And then I give in. I get up.. We roll about on the bed. We dance. We gush. We romp about. We laugh. We sing. And we smile. Happy and content. You are my sunshine.. my only sunshine…..
