Romeo came into our lives 4+ yrs ago in Bangalore. We thought now all we needed was kid(s) and our family will be complete.
I always told P, I wanna have 2 kids, 5 dogs and big house with lots of open space. P didn’t know what to say or where to look. He was worried about his place on the bed! With one Romeo, he didn’t get enough space to sleep on the bed.If you’d like to know, he’s a tall (6’4″) and lanky guy and the bed had to be custom-made to fit his long legs.
With Romeo coming in our lives, things changed. The first nite, Romeo was whimpering just under our bed and begging us to take him up with us. I warned P, you do it and you’ll never have an inch for yourself any more. But who listens to ones’ wife? So till date, Romeo decides where he’ll sleep before we both get our places on the bed.
This was till Leaia came in our lives!
Now its a funny situation. Leaia jumps onto the bed. Claims her position on the pillows (she alternates between mine and P’s). Then she gets me and while poor Romeo watches from the side and sulks. P takes his place on the bed and Romeo simply sleeps on the floor.
In the middle of the night, somehow the equation changes. We find Leaia sleeping and snoring on the floor cushions and Romeo trying to snuggle under our legs. Again in the morning, Leaia drags him back on the floor and it continues…..
Where does this leave both of us? Ofcourse, we are sleeping and watching with half our eyes open with all the drama is going on around us but very happy that now we can stretch our legs completely. Leaia is there to “Manage” Romeo…
Not only our sleep has improved but guess what? Going out has become completely easy. With Leaia as his company, Romeo doesn’t get a minute to sulk. She constantly, eggs him on to play and if he doesn’t she ensures he does….she is persistent like her mom (what can I say :)).
More later on this…but definitely having 2 furkids is any day better than 1…..
