Well, not exactly. I am a new dad now. Well like all new dad’s it takes a while to settle into the fact that you have a kid now. He makes sure that I realize it faster. He cries harder.
My team at work gifted me (or rather my newborn) with a Baby Rocker. I was not sure on what it was. I never had one, neither have I seen one. “The instructions are inside the box on how to fix it” said my colleague.
My curiosity on how it work( more importantly on how much it cost) increased. I still don’t understand why people cut off the price on gifts, I mean they could have made me happier by saying that it cost XX RS !
I stopped at a nearest baby shop to find that out the price myself. This day would be marked as the ‘first day to enter a baby shop’ in my life.
“Sir, how can I help you’ asked the salesman.
“Diapers, nappy pads, teether, nail cutters………………………………” he continued for a minute.
What???? I thought so many things for my tiny baby?
“Well you know 10 days old..show me the nail cutter” It just dawned to me his nails were getting bigger.
The salesman showed me complicated nail cutters I have never seen in my life, which even had instructions on how to use it.
‘How much???” I asked
Baby products are sure expensive, well you wouldn’t want the least expensive one for your baby. You would get everything you can. And the manufacturers know it !
As I walked out of the door with a couple of diapers, nappy pads, nail cutter, musical box etc I glanced at the Baby rocker box.
When I was a small kid, my rocker was a human being,my mom..Back home he is rocking on a battery operated 3.5K rocker.
Next item on the list, pram.
(When he grows older, I got plans to use the rocker as a head massager, well I would need it !)
