Before I tell you more on what happened today morning I have to brief you on the night before this . So we (my husband and I) come back home after travelling in car for close to 700 kms from south of Karnataka and we crash into our beds and pass out . This was about yesterday .
And today morning around 6:30 am , I force myself up to check on my older one (Sparsh) and see if he is ready for school or not . I go to his room still rubbing my eyes and find him dressing up with a smile on his face.
Before even I apologise for not arranging his bag and taking out his uniform ready the night before , he comforts me saying ” Mummy , why did you get up ? See I am ready ! I did everything on my own , you go and sleep for some more time .”
I was so relieved , I hugged him and wished him a good day at school , came back to my room with a smiling heart for an extra 15 mins nap .
We as parents / elders tend to underestimate our own kids . Given a chance whey can organise and conduct themselves in a much better way. We overprotect them and often burden them with instructions not letting them express thoughts . Often when finishing off with home assignments , we tend to answer them even without they thinking on it . Or if they ask a questing we quickly jump into a conclusion , without letting them ponder over it at all . Most of the times they can answer their own questions, however humble it may me . But for this to happen we need to take a step back and let them drive the car called life . And today I get mixed emotions coming into terms with the fact that my little baby is not so little anymore 🙂
Let the wings fly !
