What are you checking in the newspaper so deliberately that too everyday? Please give it to me, let me check it. I don’t know what you do with it. Are you really reading anything? I don’t find anything new in it. Still every morning you just keep reading it and utter some numbers. What’s going on? Why are you so tensed? If you are done with it, can we have some talk.
You are telling, I am busy reading news now as Lockdown is there due to Corona..
You are sitting with the laptop most of the time. What are you doing? Before you used to carry it to your office. If you are not going to office than atleast be with me. It’s so frustrating to see you at home but getting busy with laptop. Let me look into it and find out. I don’t know why you have to open it everyday.
You are telling, I can’t go to office now so working from home as Lockdown is there due to Corona..
I have heard you many times telling me that I should avoid the mobile. But I can see you attending calls all the time. Sometimes you lock the door as you are busy in video call. You are telling me it’s office meeting. I don’t know why you are using the mobile so much. It’s not good.
You are telling, at present it’s the only the possible way to communicate as Lockdown is there due to Corona.
Why noone is visiting our home? Did you ask our family and friends to not visit our home?Tell me. Noone is ringing our door bell. You are not taking me out also. I can see you at home all day. Instead of sitting at home with laptop, can’t we go out and have fun. It’s so boring to be at home when we can go for a walk instead. I love to walk with you by holding hands. But…
You are telling, I can’t go out for a walk or noone is going to come now as Lockdown is there due to Corona.
It’s been so long, we went for any outing.You have promised in my birthday that we will travel to new places. And believe me, I loved the idea. From our past trips, I was so much loving the travel. It’s so nice to roam around in a new place with new people. Now, when I am asking you about our next trip.
You are telling, we can’t go out for vacation now as Lockdown is there due to Corona..
My life has changed from past few months. I was so happy before. Now, things have changed drastically and it’s all because of Corona. I don’t know anything about it. You have never told me about it earlier. You have changed a lot from past few months as you don’t share everything with me now. I asked you so many things but everytime it ends up at Corona. Sometimes I feel so irritated that I start getting upset. You know it but you don’t do anything to cheer me up. Your love has changed suddenly. I don’t know what’s the reason behind the sudden change. But I am not liking it. Everytime you are just giving an excuse by saying that it’s all because of Corona.
You are not interested in taking me out but simply saying as Lockdown is there due to Corona.
Can we please go out like before? Do you remember when we last visited the mall? Leave mall visit, you have stop taking me out in car for long drive. You know how much I love to be with you in the car. You have stop doing all the things that I love. I am getting bored at home. Please say to Corona that I don’t know anything about it. But I want to live freely and happily like before.
Note: This is the most possible conversation, my toddler would’ve had with his dad seeing the present scenario. But it has not happened yet as he’s just 18 months old and he can’t speak so many words. I can still feel it in his eyes which keeps looking at the door and sometimes asking his dad or me to go out. Although we take him for a walk in the society park sometimes or in the corridor but it’s still not like before.
What surprised me the most is that, now he knows that we can go out only after wearing a mask. He reminds us everytime to wear it before stepping out of the door. It might be just to get the grocery from the downstairs grocery shop or just watering the plants in the corridor. Our mask should be there. At present, he doesn’t know anything about the Corona situation as he’s too small to understand it. Right now, he knows about his toys, running around the home or loving us. With the prevailing lockdown situation, he is adapting himself like the rest of the world. Like him, everyone’s life has changed. But it has not stopped. It’s time to be positive and stay safe.
Stay at home!
Maintain social distancing!
