Why do we love babies? Why do we get so excited when a newborn joins our family? I was just thinking about this as I was in the paediatrics casualty. Yes they are cute and adorable and all. Agreed. But there is one new theory I came up with. They are like brand new slates-unwritten. I think every parent wants to chart their child’s life to perfection. He becomes a portal for fulfillment of forgotten dreams: a corrected and better version of his parents. No.our life was not perfect. Hence we let our imagination run and pursue the best script for the storyline of our children’s lives. They become our dream. And hence we get so excited at the birth of a new family member- what will his story be? Of course we shall not forget, the Author of our lives is a wonderful scriptwriter! And hence we watch in awe as this new story unfolds.
