I saw a big, beautiful, red and golden sleigh waiting for us! “Welcome aboard” said the reindeer who would pull the sleigh. Hridaan and I were staring at the sleigh and the reindeer with our eyes and mouth wide open. “He’s Rudolph!” Shouted Hridaan in excitement. “Yes, hop in now, get on the sleigh.” Replied Rudolph. My dad carried me and Hridaan one after the other and put us in the sleigh, then he climbed aboard. The sleigh took off. It was unbelievable. As it flew upwards, the air became cooler. The reindeer gave us hot chocolate milk and ginger cookies to keep us warm.
That was the first time in these 20 months that me and Aanya were all alone (or you can say our “me time” with No rulezzzzz)
Well, it is so difficult to mention one memorable day with my daughter, because every moment that I spend with her is unforgettable.
However, the day I remember the most with her is when we brought our little angel home from the hospital.
So as I try to look behind hard,
Trying to find a memorable day,
I realize each day is one
And I won’t have it any other way!!
The sound of the door shutting still rings loud in my ear, but I think my heart was beating louder. It was the first time I would be alone with my 8 month old (and two dogs) – my wife had back to back skype sessions for 9 hours, and had just shut the door on the four of us!
I knew how to change a diaper, I knew how to make his milk and Neil was just a baby – what could possibly go wrong!
As I finish their rounds and drop them off on the porch waving goodbye, I know I have to pull brakes every ten meters till I’m in the visual range. Amu keeps saying “estop” and though I can’t hear him, to play along I gotta keep slowing down on that 40 meters stretch.
