Today, I would like to share one of the cutest memories created between my five-month-old son and me. My husband slept already as he had an office & I was hell tired and wanting to sleep desperately.
But the little one was not in a mood to sleep; instead, he wanted to play with the full attention of mine. It was already 12:30 am, and I was trying since 11 pm, but we know how today’s kids are.
After trying really hard for almost one and a half hours, I pretended to sleep, thinking, if he sees me sleeping, he might also sleep. But I was wrong in understanding my own baby and what he did was the cutest thing ever.
When I was pretending to sleep by closing my eyes (with half-open which an infant cant see obviously), he kept looking at my face in the hope that I would open my eyes and play with him, but I didn’t, & I decided to count only to see till when he will look at me like this.
You won’t believe me; I counted till 77 controlling my laugh and smile. But the way he was looking at me was so cute that I could not manage more. And I finally smiled at him; in return, he gave me a cheerful smile, and he was like, “mission achieved.”
It was so cute that I kissed him several times. But since it was midnight and I wanted him to sleep, I tried the same thing again. This time he was so playful that he tried to open my eyes with his cute little fingers. And he kept doing this till I opened my eyes and looked at him.
And this continued till 1 am, and in between, I scolded him too by shouting, but he was so cheerful that he continued to smile, looking at my face.
Finally, after lots of hard work, I was able to make him sleep at around 1.
So this is how today’s kids are. They are born naughty and too intelligent to understand our mood very well, whether we are pretending or serious.
