Post number 100. Dedicated to Baby Param


You are the baby, I wanted to enjoy. The one that wasn’t my IIT entrance. I uber worried myself for your brother.
But for you, I exhaled. I let you cry. I used the mixie while you were sleeping. I let you chomp on a bright toy (that i hoped wasn’t made in China). I didn’t pick you up at the first wail or even on the second. I didn’t always examine the contents of your dirty nappy. I didn’t make payasam when you rolled over. I didn’t cry when I heard that you had to be admitted.I forgot a vaccination day.
i can’t believe i just pressure-cooked a carrot for you, baby param.
These last six months have just fled.

  2. a friend told me this when i was expecting n4:
    when the first one even whimpered i dropped everything and ran.
    with the second, after ten howls i’d go and see if all’s okay. no blood – right, i’ll get back after finishing whatever i was doing.

    but hey do make some payasam and eat a bite for me.

  3. choxbox: i am still extra-cautious when it comes to firstborn: are you still?
