8:30 pm after a long tiring day at an event where the company I was consulting with and I created history for a client (Lokmat).
Me: Hi Abhu! How was your day?
Abhu: Hi Mumma! My day was super awesome! Dada ji took me down for an ice cream and I finished my homework too. How was your day?
M: My day was amazing too. Guess what Abhu? We succeeded in making the client trend on Twitter.
A: Wow! Really? That’s awesome! What exactly did you do?
M: We made their hashtag trend on Twitter. It was announced in front of the CM of Maharashtra, Shri. Devendra Fadnavis. The highlight of the event was when he congratulated the client in front of 300 corporate personnel. Whats more? His office re-tweeted the client’s tweets as well.
A: Oh my God!
M: Yes, but I missed you at the event. Let’s celebrate when I come home. ok?
A: Yes done!
We had one more big project coming up the next day. So my husband and I waited back for a while. Didn’t realize that it was almost midnight. We were four hours late!
The phone rang. My husband answered it.
Angry Abhu: What is this Papa? Why are you and Mumma not home as yet?
Amarkant: I am sorry Abhu, we are leaving now.
A: (long string of frustrated complaints, wails, shouts)
I took the phone from Amarkant and assured him that we will be there in no time. My boy is usually very understanding and patient. Myriad thoughts went through my mind while I searched the reason for his sudden tantrum.
Nevertheless, we drove at top speed and came home to this:
Amarkant and I were simply elated! At first, we didn’t know how to react. We just kept smiling and exchanging happy glances. We hugged him out of pure joy. This little fellow had some more things up his sleeve. He had actually planned how he wanted to award this to us. Just like the WWE championship, he made us line up, then took my hand and raised it in the air announcing me as an Internet Champion.
After that, I had to pose as per his instructions. Check this…
After this, he did the same announcement with his father. A shy Amarkant posed with the the belt while Abhu and I clapped loudly and cheered.
It was 2 am in the morning. And we hadn’t slept for more than 20 hours now. However, we felt relaxed, happy and blessed. We cuddled our son to sleep. To have a child as a partner and best friend is the most blessed feeling in the world.
