When your preschooler teaches you about compassion!
Manasi and Aadya might want anything and everything under the sun .. otherwise.. but when they are sleepy, they just want the warmth of Amma touching them .. just my hand would do!
It is such moments when they put their hands around my neck .. that I call … ? Complete Bliss! ❤️❤️❤️
So I have a rowdy of a younger daughter Manasi ?
She decided she wanted to read a book ..
She was calling okay yelling Aaddhaaa aaddhaaa addhaaa .. who by the way was sitting right next to her ..
Aadya was seeking my attention..
I smile ? and tell A .. see Manasi is calling out to you .. just like you are calling me ..
She smiled .. and turned towards Miss Manasi.
So Manasi apparently also decided for her Akka that Akka MUST read THE book she pre-decided.
She shoved the book to Aadya and told her to read..
I smiled at my elder daughter’s inconvenience because just the scene where miss A puts me in .. like every hour ?
Now Aadya let herself an uncomfortable smile and sat down to read ..
I didn’t know how to react to this now .. for a moment ..
Aadya wanted to do something with me .. but sat down with her sister to satisfy her ..
I really felt guilty that she stopped doing something what she wanted maybe because I prodded her to listen to what her sister wants to say to her ..
So I told her ..
it’s okay if you don’t want to read .. you can tell Siva that you wouldn’t be able to read along with her ..
Now my elder daughter surprised me .. overwhelmed me ..
Amma it’s okay .. Siva will feel bad right .. So I will sit down and read ?
Wow! Aadya always has lessons for me on compassion, empathy and love! She just always does!
I always feel blessed to have such a love-filled soul enter my life! ❤️
P.S. My little stubborn toddler younger daughter refused to allow A to pick any other book! And poor thing just stuck to it for good 15 minutes .. because apparently
It’s okay Amma! Siva will feel bad!
Now after all this .. I just have to share .. Manasi adores Aadya like nobody!
Right from the womb where she used to always respond to Aadya by kicking .. to start looking up to the little big sister, following her ? to forgetting her own woes if Aadya is crying and pacifying her??!
I so so love their bond – the sibling bond! ?
This is that book that Miss Siva Manasi picked up for Miss Sree Aadya ?
Also we are finally setting up Montessori space at my moms place ?
