I have two sons, their personalities and hobbies are very different. The big child is quieter, the small one is more lively. When I feel tired after all day taking care of them, What I hope that they can play quietly together and let their mother can be able to take a break to rest my ears and my entire body. But when a child is ill and no longer around your legs like a little kitten beside. Trust me, when that moment happened, all I wish is that they can continue to play next to me with their endless energy. Today I will share a story when the child was sick.
As usual, every evening when I prepare for the dinner, I will let the children watch a cartoon. Usually, they will sit together on the sofa and watch. But yesterday evening they were unusually quiet. When there is too quiet I got to be very nervous! I looked at them from the kitchen, the big child wad sitting there playing the Lego while watching the cartoon. And the small child was like a beached fish lying on the floor with eyes closed. I thought he was sleeping. When I was about to carry him to the bedroom, he opened the eyes and looked at me with the sad puppy eyes. I asked him, what’s wrong with you? He didn’t answer, but the eyes turned red. I know he must somewhere don’t feel good. But he was too small to tell me where he didn’t feel good. I can only put him around my arms and massage gently on his stomach, slowly, gently, softly, he fell asleep in my arms. I put him to bed, he turned around and continued sleeping.
When I walked back to the living room, the big kid seemed quite bored without the little brother. About two hours later, I once again to check the little kid. In the dark two big round big eyes staring at me like a little lion. The little brother woke up, don’t make any sound, just sitting in the darkness. Saw me coming, with opened arms want a hug. Let’s go to the big brother. When the big kid saw the little brother coming, all of a sudden the energy coming back. Again the home was filled with laughter.
Hi, kid, thank you so much for being okay so quick. When you are quiet, you don’t know how much we are missing you. These two hours without your noise, it felt like a century’s long.
