The wonder does not seem to leave her face, as everyday during bath time she tries to catch hold of the water flowing through the tap and can’t. Sometime perplexed, sometimes plain joyous as her hand gets wet but fist comes out empty. I move to cup some water in my palm. She dips her fingers in it and smiles. Yes Maa can hold water. She tries again. No luck. She looks at me again, mouth wide open. I open my palm and let the water flow and then we both jump in to get down to splashing the water in the tub and getting wet.
Recent visit to the beach. An uncertain her. This ever shifting ground made for a very shaky walk. Till she stumbled down and her hands hit the sand. Sand would not stay in her tiny hands either but at least some of it stuck to her palm which is some consolation. The hand, as if needs to be asked, promptly went in her mouth. Left for a scrambling Maa and Paa. Very quick reflexes required, else she was eating what she could not hold.
Need I add..Buzz loves sand and water a lot. So what if she can’t hold them, no matter how she tries 🙂
