Today at 10pm, as Ritesh went to put Adu to sleep, I got some winding down time for myself. As I'm reflecting on the day, I can't help smile. Today, after finishing my work from home, I went to pick up Adu from her child-care. (Today was her first nappy-free day in the child care which added to my anxiety- oh, the joys of parenthood!). Anyway, she's usually very hungry by evening and drinks milk in the car on our way back home.
At home, I thought of cleaning some dishes before giving her a bath. And the string of thoughts- about what to have for dinner tonight, lunch tomorrow, what to wear to work tomorrow had already kicked in. As I'm hurriedly trying to finish off some chores:
Me: Adu, will you have strawberries or something before you take a bath?
Adu: Yes Mumma, I'll have something.
Me: Ya, so do you want some strawberries?
Adu: No Mumma, can I please have something?
Note to self- She's getting smarter- my soon to be 3 year old! I have to be careful in framing questions from next time...
