Wordless Wednesday 89
When our six-year-old wanted some me-time!
We always tend to think that it’s only the grown-ups who want me-time. What about kids? They want me-time too. It’s easy to see how we often overlook that.
This picture is reminiscent of one of our earliest parenting lessons. As parents, you think you’re always open to the idea of letting your little one be, especially when you see that he is old enough to potter about on his own. Truth is, we’re often far from what we think we are!
So, our little munchkin was totally in love with the outdoors from an early age. He could spend hours gazing at flowers and trees, looking up at the sky and watching the clouds. The other peculiar thing about him was that even though he’d be chatty through the day, in the mornings, he’d prefer to keep to himself most of the time, choosing to speak very little or nothing at all. Daddy Dearest—certainly not the one to give up, would try to be at his playful best, chatting and gently cajoling him to open up and talk, in vain, of course!
And so, it happened, that one December morning, much to our amusement, we found our little man, sitting on his favourite chair, enjoying his milk and biscuits, with something dangling from his woolly cap. As we came closer, we found him smugly sipping his drink, having come up with a cheeky idea of letting us know what he wanted! The message was loud and clear! At last, he’d found a way to savour the silence, with no one to intrude upon his peace!
