The first dream

It was the first dream that Sunshine had, or at least the first one that she shared with us. She woke up on Saturday, Jan 31, crying and saying “doggy kata”. she even showed us the spot on her stomach where a dog has supposedly bitten her. Then we had to make her understand that it was probably a dream, albeit a nightmare, and she was pacified. Though she doesnt understand what a dream is but I guess at least she knew that there was nothing to cry about.

Dreams, my MLS, there will be many for you in the coming days. And there may be a few where you will wake up calling for us, just the way you did other day. Dear, we would be there, your daddy and momma, so that you find your strength and move on. I wonder what your dreams would be when you are a 20-year-old little girl… though at 20 months it was about a dog.

Predictions go wrong

When I was pregnant, everyone around told me that I am going to deliver a boy. Every Tulsi, Daisy and Heera had an opinion on my preggy state. They said how my tummy was round and huge and that it is a sign of baby boy. They told me that with girls the tummy doesn’t grow so big and also it points towards your toes. Well, so much prediction from all quarters that me and hubs believed it. So we made a dictionary of boy’s names. So convinced we were. And we always wanted a baby girl, so there was not so much tempo about choosing names. Once a friend even remarked, “You guys don’t seem to be excited about becoming parents.” Not correct, but though we wanted a healthy baby above everything else, yet the desire for a girl was very strong. So, when I was taken to the operation theatre (yeah, I had a C-sec—another day, another post on it) and the result was out in 30 minutes, I asked my gyneac how’s the baby. “It’s a girl”, she said. I could not believe my luck, so I asked again, “Are you sure?” And she replied yes a healthy baby girl. So, my Miss Little Sunshine entered our lives when she was least expected. And, I have a feeling that there are many more unexpected things from her waiting to be unfolded.

A week after one of the “auntiji” who confidently said I am having a baby boy asked me so what’s the outcome. I told her “I am blessed with a girl” and she muttered “Sorry”. I felt like smacking her face and asked her in not-so-polite way what was sorry about having a girl. She fumbled and said “Oh, I was just apologising for my prediction going wrong.” WTF, did I give two hoots to what she predicted?
