This pandemic might be tough for parents and caregivers due to lots of reasons, like managing the household, children, office, and so much more. Living in a metro city doesn’t give you much time with your family. Working parents are not able to give much time to their kids, or even to themselves. So, this lockdown is considered a boon, even after so many cons and other day-to-day challenges.
We look at it through the eyes of a father. They are able to take care of and look at the
progress of their child, observe them achieve milestones, etc.The phrases we hear from them are along the lines of, Oh, he knows this already? Wow! or, He just said papa! or, He just took his first steps towards me!
I have seen so many adorable moments and their bonding. My son worships his dad. He follows him everywhere in the entire house. They have their morning tea together. He drinks milk as his father has his tea. He also calls his cup of milk ‘chai’.
As a mother, I have stepped down one step, just to see them bonding, loving, caring for each other. As father and son, they play all sorts of games like cricket, football, and even basketball. My son has his father pushing him around in a car, or teaching him batting practice by tying a ball on a string. They bathe together, and eat together. He has heard our son say his first words, and I love observing their simple hugs. There are so many moments.
Not that we have not faced many problems, not that this pandemic has not given us
challenges… But the day ends with a smile, instead of worries, when I see them together.
Take advantage of this time together, we won’t get it back. Click pictures, do crazy stuff together, dance, sing, whatever you can, in these difficult times!
Happy parenting, stay safe.
