I didn’t understand the depth of the comment then.
“So I’ll get her to you the next time she’s restless and wouldn’t sleep” said the baby’s mother who was a family friend. I couldn’t understand why there are such times when the little one wouldn’t sleep. She’s fine in my arms and starts snoring in less than 20 minutes whenever she’s with me. I had some experience in nurturing children but as the wife puts it, I’d never had a chance to change nappies, which mothers in India consider a litmus test for the “daddy quotient”.
Someone recently listed me in Twitter among the “best blogger dads”, making me think over and over again how I am, as a dad. I’ve never blogged or tweeted about my son, though there might be some passive comments here or there.
He has recently turned twelve, and here is a photo of us. As a blogger I’ve limited my comments to cycling and cultural experiences. Should I blog about my personal side more often? I don’t know if my readers would be interested. So I’ll leave it at that. Please share your thoughts.
