A lot of things happen as we grow up from a kid to a responsible adult, and a few of those are supposed to be good too. We learn to interact with the world, learn to control our emotions and slowly grow up to take responsibilities of things around us. All this sounds good, but I do miss one thing very badly, the ability to laugh at the smallest of the things, the state of no boundaries. And that’s true, a little kid doesn’t know what’s right or what’s wrong, they’re as innocent as it gets and their ability to express themselves is something us grown-ups can only envy. Talking about my little nephew, although many little things make him happy, he happens to be selective with what to laugh at. After all a baby’s laughter is the most precious thing for a mother, so why should he make her thing it is easy to get!

To list a few things that make him happy is a tough job, you can never be certain that he’ll give you the pleasure of seeing him smile for the same thing again. But still, there’s always something that will make him laugh. The ceiling fan tops the list in our case. Unlike most parents who entertain their kids with lullabies and songs, my sister and brother-in-law use the ceiling fan to make him concentrate. The kid not only loves it, he literally gets lost in it. And that’s just a first in the list of weird things this kid loves. There’s also the smartphone, but not just any smart phone, the note II ! If it’s a normal galaxy, he might just throw it away, but my note and he have a special bonding. I am yet to experiment with the i-phone though.  Now before this post goes on to prove that my nephew is just as weird and crazy as me, I’d like to throw some light on the normal things he loves. The first one in that will be the poem “Old McDonald had a farm” As much as I hated poems when I was a kid, he happens to forget everything else when we play this little one on the phone.

And oh, there’s one more thing. The batman t-shirt, one thing that certainly makes me a proud uncle. He isn’t choosy about his clothes yet, he’s not 18 now, is he! But he does convey his content with his expressions and the kind of smile he has when we show his the batman t-shirt tells me a lot about him. Don’t I have a cool nephew? There’s always a plethora of things your kid will like, but all of it will work only when he’s comfortable and fit. Thanks to my sister’s months of research now I also happen to be quite knowledgeable when it comes to keeping a baby happy. And take it from me, a good diaper is the first step to that. I could tell you how awesome Pampers is when it comes to that but you might want to know that yourself. So check this out:  http://www.rewardme.in/tag/Pampers
