Early Morning activites


Every morning Joy wakes us up by 5.30 am... I don't know how he does it .. but....every morning without fail... we don't even have to check the clock nowadays...
The husband and I try and go for a walk together everymorning.... we figured that since we are up so early anyways.. we might as well.. make the best of the decent weather at that time of the day and also.. attempt at some kind of a fitness routine.... I must confess however, The husband is more regular than I am..Sometimes after waking up about ten times at night to put Joy back to sleep... when he finally wakes up properly at 5.30 am I just hand him over to the maid and turn over to catch some undisturbed sleep for about an hour.... The husband who... ahem!! ...has slept the entire night ... is fresh at that time and hence goes for his walk...
( I am told by all the old aunties and uncles who see him at that park...." How come you don't come everyday.. your husband is so regular... .dear... you should also be regular.. only then will you lose some weight ...no??".....OK!!! Whatever!!!! Thanks for your concern... and Whatever!!!! %$^&* )
Anyways , when we do go for our walk... we have to slip away while Joy is being entertained by the maid or being given something to nibble....and when we return... Joy has finished his breakfast and is in his walker creating havoc.. and bossing over the cook who comes in at that time to do his magic and the car cleaner who has to clean two cars before the husband leaves for work....
Ths husband is sweet .. he shaves before we go for our walk.. so that he can spend more time with Joy in the morning before breakfast....so from around 7.15 am till 7.50 am... is our time with our son.... this time is also shared with the newspaper.. ie. if it survives Joy and the Sudoku....
Joy usually is so thrilled to see us in the morning... and spends most of that time climbing all over us .. and trying to sip at our nimbu pani....the lil fellow is quite a performer... he tries to show his Dad.... all his tricks... like rolling all over the floor,trying to pull the AC cables.., crawling under the coffee table..., sliding off the sofa and trying to turn one of the peck tables over, making a break for it as soon as he sees the balcony door open.. etc....
When we sit down for our breakfast at around 8 am.... he sits with us in his high-chair and plays around with a few of his toys or a few cornflakes.. and sings for us...( yells is more like it).....he is usually put into his bath by around 8.15am after seeing his father off to work....
By 8.35 am or so... he is all nice and fresh.. smells lovely and ready for a bit of mommy time.. the both of us... play for a while ....cuddle and then .... gradually he starts singing his sleep song.... by 9 am... he is fast asleep....and usually sleeps for approximately 1 hour.. and sometimes if we are lucky about 2 hours ....
The maid and I get this break to finish some of the household chores and also get ourselves ready for the day.....
If someone asks me which part of the day do I enjoy most with Joy ..I would say.... my early morning mommy time after his bath is most precious...
