Lil munchaquila is growing up fast. Smarter, bigger and heavier. Keeping up with her latest ‘discoveries’ and ‘explorations’ is a thrill. Being able to feed her emotionally is also important in proving to her that I am her world, and not just her being my world. We’re busy and unsettled after work, upon reaching home trying to clear the chores forgetting that we have a child (or more) who yearns our attention too. To continue doing the dishes, or pick the little one.. She had a full day spent at playshool/nursery — and go-home time means ‘yeah i can play with mummy/daddy time’ only to get a cold shoulder from her mom/dad who expects a 1-2 year old to ‘know’ and ‘understand’ that mummy/daddy needs to wash the dishes– as completing chores after a whole day at work is more important than sitting down or playing with the kid. Emotionally the little one has been let down. Let this carry on for a day or two, than weeks, months and years.. I can’t let this happen, and I have to keep reminding myself this; I work to live, not live to work.
