The other day I was in Chennai for my book launch. (Click here to see some photos of the event).
We stayed at a really nice hotel and my family was with me. My children were in adjoining room.(We had inter connecting room)
Early in the morning, I woke up before everyone else. It was magical to see both my children fast asleep. There is something about sleeping children that transforms mothers’ hearts into quivering jellies. I stood and stared for long filled with an indescribable tenderness. It took me back to their childhood when they were babies. After a while, I crawled into the bed with my daughter and dived under the luxurious duvet, cuddled her and before I realised I was fast asleep.
My daughter woke me up after a while with great urgency. She was all chuckles, smiling widely, her eyes glowing with excitement.
‘Mama when did you come into my bed?’ she demanded to know.
‘Early in the morning baby,’ I answered, still rubbing the sleep out of my eyes.
‘Oh mama—you know what happened? I thought my hair had grown over night!’ she exclaimed and laughed. (One of the things my daughter really admires about me is my hair and she longs for hair like mine. Where as I love her naturally straight silky hair.)
She hadn’t seen me in her bed (as I was buried under the quilt) and when she woke up she only saw my hair spread out next to her. She had presumed it was her hair and she was so puzzled to see such long hair next to her face and wondered how her hair could have grown overnight.
I laughed heartily for a while.
It was a nice start to the day.
