where was i


baby param is ill. i am trying to persuade him to sleep. he’s too nose-blocked, too ventolin-y, too antibioticked, way too angrytiredsleepy.

Me: “firstborn, for heaven’s sake. please play quietly in the hall.”

firstborn trots off.

some quiet.
at last.
baby param is responding to the silence. i pat him. his lower eyelashes are an eyelash away from the upper eyelashes.

sleep. yes. rapid eye movement. yes.

“MA! AM I PLAYING QUIETLY ENOUGH, NOW?: firstborn booms from the hall.

where was i?

  1. Oh boy !!! You are having a tough time. Hey for Baby Param, rub some vicks on his feet (sole) and cover with socks. Do this when he’s laying down or sleeping. Strictly no vicks on nose, chest, back.
    PS: check ur mail
