Memoirs of my mommyhood

The goodbyes are back

Even since the separation anxiety struck (almost an year now), Venky hated us leave for office. As he grew older it was got more difficult to distract him. For the past couple of months, he would not let us out of his sight once we left the bed. Even after his nanny managed to pacify him into some play, he would immideately know when our car unlocked. Many times, I had to leave him wailing to the office.

Over the last week I noticed, he did not seem as anxious in the mornings. He did not run behind me when I got up to leave. In fact most of the times, he would be busy in his play as I quietly slipped out.

And today, there was a miracle. Venky figured that I was leaving for office. He said – “Teen Chocote lana, Banana lana, Apple lana” (Get me 3 choclates, banana and apple). Then he waved bye! As I reversed the car, he kept waving bye and even crouched to get a better view of me as I waved back. All this, with a smile on his face!

Needless to say, I grinned all the way to office:)
