Kids 101 – Innocence In Your Eyes!

The proudest species to walk this planet are the parents. Any step by those tiny feet is an achievement for the household. And, the way a child looks up to the parent with innocence & pride is also no simple feat. As much as parents are proud, the kids view them as superheroes with a hidden cape. There are moments when I am left speechless by the innocence in your eyes.

The little kiddo is about to turn two & his grasp of things in rapidly changing. But, one thing which is constant is the depth of emotions in his eyes. Mommy finds his toy & he is surprised. Mommy fixes his boo-boo (read cuts & bruises) with a kiss & yet again he is pain free. He believes that hiding in plain sight would make him invisible. And, mommy also plays along with his make belief invisible world. I hope this innocence is never lost. 🙂

Latest event that had left me bemused was after the Ganpati Visarajan we did at home. For days, we were praying to Lord Ganesha & one day we immersed them in water at home. The sweet innocent child of mine was left crying for thirty minutes. His reason for crying was that the Lord has been removed from his place & immersed in bucket. Why did Mumma remove his Ganpati from the Mandir? How do you explain it to a two-year old? It took much coaxing for us to pacify the kiddo!

Another event I am sure every parent can relate to it the fondness of child with Body cream bottles. The kiddo believes that he has to apply cream to Mommy, like Mommy does to him. And, that means emptying the whole bottle and painting the bed, walls & Mommy equally with it. You can’t decide whether to laugh or to cry at the mess created! 😀

The innocence makes him believe that all is good in the world. As he is getting ready to explore the big world outside home, I am also bit worried. He would see that not all is rainbow & there are shades of grey too. But I have hope that he will learn to see beyond the differences & keep hold of his innocence. I will hold his hand until he wants to let go & be free on his own!

    Kids are most precious ones. Their innocence is away from horrors of life.

    It’s so difficult to explain them many things, and ofcourse they always need a detailed explanation, maybe over and over again..

      Yes, repeating things with kids is an important step.

    Kids understand the language of love touch and kiss. It fixes their pains. Nicely penned down the emotions of a toddler

    That was a fun read. My daughters end up massaging each other with an entire moisturizer bottle 🤣. But to see it, it’s all worth it.

    A heart touching post indeed! Kids are that innocent that it is very difficult to convince them about a particular incident happening around
    like ‘Ganesh visarjan’. It made me sad how your toddler cried for half an hour after Ganesh visarjan. But, as the kids grow they learn, they get matured and the innocence fades away. But holding their hands in their journey would definitely going to help them.

      Kids being kids are always easily attached to people and things. 🙂
