Am I Scary???
This is something which I am asking myself lately. Why???.....In last few days, it happened more than once that Mishti woke up from her sleep whimpering, then clung to her daddy and the moment I try to pacify her, she starts shrieking her lungs out.
Both the times it happened in early morning. Usually, me & Mishti are still in our sleep while SG gets ready for office early morning But that day, she was whimpering in her sleep. As I tried to put the milk bottle in her mouth, she woke up, looked at me, started howling and moved away from me. SG quickly picked her up and tried to feed her. She stopped crying hugged him and lied in his lap with her eyes closed. As the situation was under control, I silently picked her up because SG was getting late for office. She again started howling and stuck to SG. So, now SG has to put her to sleep. She slept and when she woke up later on her usual time, she was fine...giggling & playing with me!!
Second time also similar thing happened. This time my dad came to rescue SG. After a bit of tug-o-war, my dad managed to take her away in balcony to divert her attention. Alas, this time also, she was screaming seeing me.
My mom said, she might have some bad dreams in her sleep therefore, she was so scared. SG says I should go slow in 'disciplinarian' avatar as Mishti is getting scared of me. I am confused. Otherwise throughout the day, she is okay with my presence...plays with me, clings to me, read with me. Might be this is just a phase of Mishti growing up as a toddler.
