When my kid asked why I am smilingReally, there would not be a higher amount of happiness when you see your kid is happy. A parent only can tell you how you feel seeing your kid's joy.
I was playing Chess with my little daughter and thrice I lost to her. Obviously, I was purposely losing to her but even in that, I was feeling utmost happiness. She was excited and joyful that she has won against me but little did she know that I had given away my game for her. Really, when you see such excitement from a kid who is thinking she has defeated her parent, it takes you to the top of the world.
My smile was just for my own happiness and how could I say my reason to her, I was wondering. Here, I may have lost the game but it's a win for me to see her excitement.
