Dont do it!!

My little nephew who is just 6 months and has started tasting delicacies is very choosy!!!

When we give him anything that is “edible” from our point of view he will analyze it , rotate it , view it from angles, toss it, box it (to see if its strong enough) , this usually takes about 3-4 minutes, then he’ll put it in his mouth . And if he didn’t liked it, he simply throws it.
But when anything non-edible comes to his hand, for eg : paper, wool,slippers,glass, magazine, remote, cellphone and the list could continue…it would go straight into his mouth!! And just few days back , he actually chewed paper.

Earlier I used to think, that as soon as we hear a “NO”, and we were tempted to do that, but what about a kid just 6 months old, who doesn’t understands anything!! Is it that by birth we have an inbuilt trait!!
If anyone who mediates, in the initial days we try to concentrate and “NOT” to think about any thing else, and this reminds us that we still need to get back 500 /- from one of our dear friend, kaam wali bai’ nahi aayi to you need to clean utensils, I still need to call my aunt who was ill…. And so on….
Just do it…

Close your eyes and DON’T imagine the pink elephant…

What you did?...

Then we can’t help it…..isnt…!!!

I think all of us are curious by nature. And well, since your nephew is six months only, the mouth is his only way of discovering the world. He probably may not be liking the taste of the 'edible' food so he spits it out and mobile phones etc. he puts in his mouth hoping to discover what they are as he cannot chew them or bite them or swallow :D :D

And yes, we have the tendency of getting distracted easily :) We lack focus and I guess we are too attached to worldly ties to actually be able to disassociate ourselves :)

Chakoli,

After who's nephew is he? Children have their ways of finding worth of a thing.

Take care

Kids start acquirg knowledge even before they come to this world through their Mom... So its more of curiosity to try which is inbuilt.. you cant do anytg other than exclaimg "Noooooooo"
