Last weekend we put Chhori to nap and tuned her baby monitor camera on. Then we went to the lounge room to turn on the monitor so we can check on her. She normally just wakes up, opens the door and comes out but sometimes when she has nightmares, she will wakes up crying.
So this monitor has been really good for us since she was a baby but on Saturday we couldn’t find it at all. We looked at every possible place it could be in with no luck. While searching, we realised that the TV remote was missing as well and we usually place the two together.
Eventually we gave up as we couldn’t think of any other place they could be in.
After her nap, Chhori woke up, opened the door to the room and came out of the room refreshed and happy.
So we had the following conversation.
Me: “Chhori, did you put the monitor and the remote in the bin as we couldn’t find it.”
Chhori: “No, I no put in the bin.”
Me: “Do you know where it is?”
Chhori: “In my room.”
We had checked in her room but we hadn’t found it.
At this stage, she took my hand and took me to her room. She went through her toys and it was in one of her toy box. Both remote and monitor sitting there in the box together.
I have no idea why she moved them from their usual place but now AS and I have to think of Chhori as a third person in our home and started including her in all the conversation. We can no longer discount her as a baby as she solved our problem 🙂
Did you have similar experience with your child when they were little?
Take care everyone,
