So its been a crazy day. I had a marathon 3 hr session at the dentist. And believe me it was no fun. Then running around for errands.
I pick up the mite from day care at 5pm. And the fellow doesnt want to leave. He’s thrilled to see me all right, but wants to play in the sand and on the slide and the swings. I have to drag him away kicking and screaming. We go and give the car for servicing, and he howls and screams the entire way. We buy some bread for tomorrow. We get home and he refuses to go upstairs, but runs to the park instead.
I’m pretty frustrated. Running after him. Stopping him from putting mud and grass and khajoor into his mouth. But he’s loving it. Running around like an aeroplane. Swinging the loaf of bread from side to side. Giving it to all and sundry who happen to pass by. Like a little angel.
For a while, for a little little while, I put my frustration aside. I just let him be. And enjoy.
And I did. For a little while.
He ran. And I ran behind him. We played catch. For the first time. He gurgled in glee. All thrilled. Playing with his Mamma. 🙂
