Personal Journal Entry No. 2: A Conversation between Baby Y & Messy Mom

personal journal entry

Off lately as baby Y has started speaking a lot. I have found certain things to which he responds too instantly and certain things that he avoids to answer.

I then realized that I somehow need to make our conversations interesting and change the way I question him and talk to him in such an appealing way that he gets attracted to it.

Like when I go to pick him up from playschool, he runs and comes towards me and as soon as I ask him how was your day. He gives me those blank looks and says “kheli kheli kiya.”

And the conversation ends there.

I twisted the things then.

I started by addressing him. And asking a few questions that made these conversations interesting.

Mommie: What did you start your day with?

Baby Y: we all chanted OMMMM…

Mommie: That’s so amazing, I don’t go to school, hence I don’t know how to do that, can you please teach that to me?

Baby Y: Okay Mumma. First, stand up.

Mommie: Ok! (Stands up)

Baby Y: (holds my hands and teaches me to join hands) Aise hands join karo.

Mommie: oh, okay. Thanks for telling me.

Baby Y: okay. Ab eyes close karo aur doo doo saath bolo. OMMMM (Mind you, he was keeping a watch on me if I do open my eyes or not)

Mommie: Ohh wow. That feels so good. What did you do after On?

Baby Y: Ma’am told us a fish story.

Mommie: Your mam is so nice. She told you a new story.

Baby Y: haaaannn. Doo doo ko mazza aaya.

Mommie: Fir kya kiya aapne?

Baby Y: Fish me finger se color kiya. Blue and yellow color. Mazza aaya.

Mommie: How good that fish would be looking, right?

Baby Y: Yes, Mumma. Bahot cute cute. Ma’am ne star diya. See!

Mommie: So good. Then what did you do?

Baby Y: doo doo bahot bukh. Tiffin me khana khaya. Yummy yummy.

Sabne kha liya. Yey yey.

Mommie: Did you finish your tiffin?

Baby Y: No No! Doo doo ka Petu full ho gaya.

Mommie: Ok. Fir kya kiya?

Baby Y: Doo Doo ne paani pi liya.

Mommie: Fir?

Baby Y: Fir Sab friends ne kheli kheli kiya aur dance bhi.

Mommie: Wow. Kaise kiya dance?

Baby Y: Inga Inga oses, poket phuldo (Ring A ring o roses) pe dancing kiya.

Mommie: so nice. Fir did you miss mumma?

Baby Y: Nai Nai. Fir toys khela aur car chalega.

Mommie: mumma missed you.

Baby Y: Doo doo idher hai, royi royi nai karo. (Hugs after saying this)

Mommie: All amazed and thinking when did my son grow up so much that I am having such long conversations with him.

He is becoming his own man. A whole person. I am just not able to believe that this miracle is happening right in front of me.

Such conversations are a boon to moms. And I have kind of grown fond of these encounters.

Share us such golden moments with your kiddos in the comment section. We would love what your small grownups have to say!
