I am Joule, volt’s sister. I am three months old. Since my mom could not come up with a proper post I decided to take things in my own hand and introduce myself. Here we go.
When I was in my mom’s belly, she had super awesome dreams. She thought second born babies are easy like you just say ‘ to go sleep’ and they sleep. What..are we amazon echo or what !! She thought that second born babies simply grow on their own like some grass. Well I shattered all those dreams.
I don’t like to sleep. Period. If you force me , may be I will sleep for max 20 minutes. I want to be carried and held all the time. All The Time. My mom was waiting for the cradle ceremony. She thought I will be comfortable in my thooli and sleep peacefully. Yeah I am comfortable in my thooli. I use it as my exclusive personal toilet. In fact my sister volt was the first to understand that. She calls my thooli as “Joule’s toilet”. There I broke another dream of hers.
Even though its been 3 months since my entry, my mom still roams around like a zombie, sometimes due to lack of sleep but mostly due to over-eating. When I say over-eating I am not exaggerating. She buys a brand new battery for her weighing scale and in two days it runs out of battery. Such ‘heavy’ work it does. Someone should lockdown our kitchen I guess.
I have to tell you about my sister. She loves me a lot. She is super duper helpful. She runs and gets sheets, diapers, napkins whenever I need. She even fell down once while running to get me a nappy.Poor girl. Sometimes when my mom is super confused, she helps her (‘ Amma, you have to feed from the other side, last time you did it from this side’) .
My mom was explaining to my akka what breastfeeding is..etc etc with lot of effort. After listening to the whole thing, she simply said ‘ so basically you are her milk bottle. ‘
Smart! Just like me!
What I really like about her is, sometimes, by mistake, if I sleep for more than 15 minutes, she will come running and hug me and wake me up! You should see our mom’s face then!! Funny girl! hahahahaha..
OK. More about us in upcoming posts.. Until then..take care!!
