I am back! So right now I am making tea for myself and I am missing my two years old nephew #BabyKiyaan a lot because usually he is the one who makes tea for me! Yes yes I am not lying, but exaggerating a bit😝. But mind you he does help me in making the tea as he wants me to make him sit on the kitchen platform whenever I am making it and give all the ingredients that needs to be in vessel for making tea. Sometimes I have to clean the kitchen platform five times ☹️ because of the spices spilled around or milk, sometimes I have to drink a small cup of tea with 1 tablespoon of tea masala (spices) in it because my baby loves adding ingredients again and again so much that I need to divert him to take the spoon out of his hands 🤣😅. He even keeps his favourite movie Baahubali on hold to just make tea for me. You have no idea how much Baahubali means to him 🤨😉.
Right now he is enjoying in Goa with his parents and I am missing him a lot. Sob Sob 😢
On the other hand, I or even I can say many of you might feel that our childhood times was way better than today’s generation kids. I am talking about the era of 90’s when there were no cellphones, not every household had color TV( including mine ), listening songs on radio. I mean it was so simple. Basically, I miss a few things and I wish my Baby Kiyaan had that kind of start in his life. I will list down some of them below.
The biggest thing that I feel is today every kid is glued to cellphones so much that they miss out the fun of outdoor activities 😏. I mean my baby is just two years old, but he knows how to open You Tube and browse the videos 🤔. I mean he has his favourite list too! I as a child use to have strict timings for watching TV and we weren’t allowed to watch for more than an hour a day or even touch the remote!
The next thing is food. My mother didn’t have to struggle to make us eat. I have two siblings and still it wasn’t tough for her. Initially we use to live in a joint family and we use to sit down on the floor to eat. Today, it’s a task to make a child eat. We literally have to run behind them, then give them their favourite thing to do so that we can feed him. Phew 😓!
Cartoons! What’s with Motu Patlu cartoon 😣. I don’t know how kids like to watch that cartoon, but the fact is fact and so does my BabyKiyaan enjoys watching Motu Patlu. Though he isn’t a fan of this cartoon, but he still likes to watch. In our times, there use to be Tom and Jerry, Donald Duck and such cartoons were way better than what kids like to watch today!
Today’s kids are taught to be competitive at a very young age. I mean we never had playgroups! Seriously, I still don’t get the idea of kids entering into playgroup. They play with other kids, watch You Tube for nursing rhymes and a parent has to pay lakhs of money for that thing! Believe me, we were taught all those things free of cost at home and we had great teachers like Grandparents, uncles and obviously our own parents for all those things 🙂😌. We use to play a lot down our building like cricket, badminton, football and now it’s a task to find a place to play in our society because of all the parked cars 😒🙁.
No doubt, I love my Kiyaan a lot and no words would be enough to describe my insane love for him 😅. He does give us hard time sometimes, but he is a true gem, a pure soul and he doesn’t know how much his hug makes our soul feel better. I do miss many things for him and wanted him to have that experience where there was no cellphone, no color TV and only humans actual present mattered! Though technology has helped people in many ways today, to stay in touch who live far far away, to get things way too quickly but it does have its own disadvantages which I feel is not good. So does somebody feels the same way or is it only me 🧐. Anyways for now bye bye. Do pass your comments and let me know what your thoughts 🙂.
