Tuning In…

tuning inLast night, the weather was simply awesome! My son usually doesn’t like to sit outside and ‘enjoy’ the weather…there is not much in that for a 5 year old anyway… He would rather play a game or watch TV inside.

I asked him to sit for a moment. I am happy that I managed to convince him. Happier still from the outcome… Well, thought of playing a little game. Told him to close his eyes and listen to all the sounds that he could hear…told him to list a few…a biker zipped past on the road, a chair was being dragged somewhere, a dog barked, an old man coughed.

All this while I was whispering to him.

Suddenly he whispered back, “I can hear you too mumma”! For a minute my heart skipped a beat.

My son was tuned in…
