crisis....# 1

Today I completed a week of being back at work... and didn't have a problem with the waking up..Joy grinned at me as I left... everything seemed cool.....


Joy and I woke up at 5 am.. and we cuddled and played for sometime... till he found the maid more interesting and went off for his tour of the house... and his Surya pranaam...( yes !! she makes him do it everyday... I was quite amused to see him in her lap looking at the little idols with a mischevious grin ..but with his pudgy arms and hands folded....lol)...and I was left to my cup of tea and the newspaper...


On sunday, the husband and I had noticed a small mosquito bite on Joy's hand... and had dismissed it as just another one... ( we had been told the previous week.. that junior was allergic to mosquito bites....after we had taken him to the doc...with some really bad bites which were looking really scary...however, Joy was as cheerful and did not seem to be affected by these bites....)..so we just put some of his ointment and went about with our normal activities...


This morning... Joy was at his energetic best...he was grinning, laughing loudly crawling all o ver the place ...nothing unusual and amiss.... so i kissed him and went to work..... before I had even reached work... I get an sms from the husband... telling me that Joy's hand is swollen.... but he was absolutely normal.... so i should get back home and take a call about the doc...
So naturally I was a little worried... I called home and was told by the maid that he was wrestling wih the cook and I should relax...and come home at normal time... but yes the hand was a swollen.
I got back around 4 pm....and saw Joy all excited and normal... yes his hand was still swollen.... So I took him into meet his old pediatrician.... hoping he would be at the hospital that day.... He was.. and was quite thrilled to see us.. especially Joy... he examined the hand and also agreed that my darling was allergic to bites.... and these would cause inflamation sometimes.... he would however not be in any kind of discomfort.....
Anyways medicine was prescribed and the next morning Joy was fine....
That night the husband and I were looking at our sleeping son and chatting.... I asked him a question that had been niggling in my mind since this had happened....
I had not till that time been worried about going back to work.... and asked him if this was a sign.... or something..... thank fully he looked at me .. and told me that I was just getting worried.... Joy was fine and that I had taken the right decision.....He was happy that I was back at work.... and quite happy to have me telling him about my day ... which was not just about diapers and potty and baby food....
Joy and I are loving our time together....in the mornings and the evenings..... I keep going into the nursery section in school... its right next door to my class... and look at the lil ones.... they seem to be having a ball...and think of Joy....
I love this school.... and love the methods they use.... the kids are so happy ...I can't wait for Joy to come to school with me as well....
But that is still a couple of years plus a lil more away ....... I think....

Allergic to mosquito bites..even Ananya has major reactions to a small thing as a mosquito bite...wouldn't qualify that as an allergy tho. What is with these kids nowadays, eh?
The rocking horse pic of Joy's is wonderful. Where did u pic it up and how much did u have to shell out for it? Have been looking for something like that for ages now.

its all how you look at it. the day I went back to work after maternity leave, K was sick - for the first time in his life, he had a cold and it had to start the day I went back :) now how was I to interpret that??!
relax, congrats on your new job and enjoy!

It IS a sign - that Joy has a GREAT mommy!

Ohh..don't bother with such things! But on other thoughts, we can't help bothering..they are our precious little babies and we have every right to bother about them.

What I meant was don't worry. The way you describe how he is when you are gone, it sounds liek he's adjusting very very well and is being such a nice boy just so that Mommy can go and work! :D

So that is THE sign you should look at!

What you are feeling is the mommy guilt that all of us mommies go through! All of us..at some point or the other!

So enjoy your Joy! :D
