Play with an infant and forget all the worriesAm one of those men whose skills are not very good at keeping the kitchen so very well organized. By the time my wife comes home, a few bottles would have changed places or a few of the big rack items would have been kept in different places. It is not deliberate. Try as hard as I might, it just does not work out well.
Enough reason for my wife to give me a good piece of her mind. Have you not learned the 5S concept in your office? Have you ever entered the kitchen when your mother would do all the cooking? Such questions would fly in such a fast fashion and this could put even Rajnikant to shame. Even he can't hit the bad guys so fast!!
Well, on one such recent instance, she had gone out to work, and a very old friend came calling. The husband and wife had a lovely two-year-old daughter. The next three hours went in a flash. The driver arrived at the right time and it was easy to organize some good cakes from a local bakery. The child was up to big mischief as most children of that age are up to. Naturally. The walls were decorated with some modern art as well. The child made me forget all the worries. I quickly ordered the mother not to reprimand the child at all.
My wife entered the house in the evening and had a big laugh when I told her about the child. The family was not known to my wife so well. They had met in a marriage for a few minutes. Yet, she was able to connect. Surprisingly, my wife forgot all the bad temper of the morning and soaked in the fun of whatever the child had done. The mother rang up, profusely apologizing to my wife, for all the mischief of the child. My wife just said that our own daughter would have done five times the same damage and she knew!! She recollected all those good days as well.
Infants can make a big difference to our happiness. Have you experienced this?
