Ryan always gave me that ‘look’ on his face whenever I dropped him off at nanny’s. He was not angry, he was definitely not happy, just that expressionless face. At times if mummy is lucky, she gets to see a reluctant smile on her baby’s face (err.. u know those smiles as a result of funny face we made). When she is not so lucky, she has to leave a crying baby behind. Anyways, in a nutshell, a smiley goodbye wave is rare. It’s probably easier to get struck by lightning than to get Ryan to wave bye bye to mummy. *Blehhh….*
All these months I got so used to the morning routine that I have casted to stone the assumption Ryan is simply not a mummy’s boy; mummy’s always the bad one in the family so no goodbye for this fierce mummy…. until…. this day. The day I realised how wrong I was to make that assumption when I discovered Ryan will never waved goodbye if he actually wants to follow. Example when Daddy reversed his car, I’ll coax Ryan to wave bye-bye to Daddy and pretend that we’re not following. Ryan will then show his typical morning face (thinking back, it’s actually quite a pitiful sad face) until we get into the car that’s when he’ll be smiley again. I spotted him behaving that way on several other occassions and for as many times enough to convince I was sooooo wrong to have *accused* my baby for not loving his mummy, for not bothering to smile, wave goodbye when mummy leaves for work.
Sorry baby… if only mummy could read your mind…………
