Sunny-side up: Things I really admire my child for #Momology

February 11, 2019

What makes a child unique are their traits- good or bad. This post is about the things I admire about my child.

I mostly write about the problems I face in Parenting as people seek Blogs for the answers.

But today, I am not gonna share the parenting hurdles or not-so-good traits of my Kid but the little things I admire about my child.


I would like to thank Utpal Krishna for introducing me to Momology Blog train. You can read more about his work at their Blog Fashionable Foodz.


Things I admire about my child

Breaking the rules and stereotypes

Just like every other Indian Boy, my Toddler also hear these kind of statements:

  • Boys don’t cry
  • Why you are in the Kitchen, Go, do your own work

But I am glad that my Kid does not conform to these gender divides.

An eye to see the wrong

He observes a lot. He points out whenever he see something wrong-

One Day a Man was standing near to where we just arrived to sit. Kiddo said, “See Mumma, it is bad to throw the garbage like this, they should use the dustbin”. I was kind of proud and embarrassed at the same time as it was the same man who littered.

He does the same when he see someone smoking “Mumma, they are spreading pollution with that stick in their mouth”.

Humorous

No matter he uses no-so-good words but he knows how to have fun, how to laugh at himself.

  • He farts and laughs at his silly act.
  • He calls us by funny names and If I frown he says “I just said it for laughs”/ “Main mazak kar raha tha.”

Loving and Kind

  • He kisses me when I get hurt and say “Now it will be fine”.
  • If he suspects that I got hurt while we play, he asks “Did you get hurt?”
  • If something slips down from my hand by mistake. He says ” no problem, I will pick it up”

Storyteller

He does not get bored as he weaves stories out of anything.

I always wanted to imbibe this skill in him and now when he narrates me his virtual stories, my heart swells with pride.

He loves to read Books at bedtime and always up for a new story. I grin when he insists his Father to tell a story.

Innocent

No matter how hard his tantrums are, he melts down when we hug him.

When I get impatient with my husband for not doing a task. He says- “Apki bat nahi mante? Main kehta hun meri baat man jayenge“/ “Doesn’t he listen to you? Let me ask him as he will surely listen to me”

We can’t switch off TV in front of him even if he watched it for 20 mins. We take the TV remote and turn it off behind his back. We say “Light gayi/ Power cut off” and he believes us, always.

No matter how hard Parenting gets, we should always look out for the good traits of our children. Every child is unique. Let’s cherish their childishness before it goes away.

    Thats a great idea to divert ones mind from the challenges and problems in parenting. I think I am going to design my next post based on this.

    True! I too love the innocence and the attitude of breaking stereotypes in kids.

    Lovely post-Upasana, and I agree childhood is the most beautiful and innocent phase of life and we should try to cherish it before it goes away. I really liked your change of perspective..I know as a parent we all tend to get stuck on parenting challenges and problems unconsciously and you had made a fresh beginning while sharing some cool and so cute factors about your child.

      Its said that what we focus on, gets reinforce. This is why I decided to write about the good traits(which are more than the bad ones) of my Kid. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    You are right Alpana, it’s not gonna repeat. I am glad I realized this before its too late. Thanks for reading and taking time to comment.

    “Lets cherish the childhood before it goes away.” rightly said. Their childish talks, their tantrums might seems too much for us but they are not going to go through this phase again. As a parent we need to encourage them and guide them when needed.
