Before sending my son to bed tonight, he said this shocking statement. So i just calmly ask if he was jealous of the baby….
i: why do u want to become a baby again? are u jealous of the artention that we give to the baby? is that why?
son: oh no, no, no. I am not jealous of our baby. I love her a lot lot lot… i am just telling you that i want to become a baby again…
i: but why?
son: coz, the baby has to do 5 things only…
i: what 5 things?
son: all the baby does is 1. pee 2. eat 3. poop 4. play 5. sleep
i: isnt that what you do as well?
son: oh yes i do all that but there is a lot more to do…like i have to learn how to write, read, add, clean, take care of the baby, wash and a lot more…phew!!! that’s a lot…it is more than 5! i guess its even 10 or more…phew!!!
Oh no, i think its time to teach him the value of responsibility…
