I’ve been meaning to blog about a lot of things. However, since we only have 4 work days this week and it is reporting week again, my time is being consumed by work. Read: Toxic.
Anyway, I just want to share with you that I think my little Maxyn has developed a sense of time. (There will be Maxyn posts in the coming days.) Why did I say that?
Before I leave work, I usually call home to check on my girls. Lately, Ate Meriam or Em would always tell me that Maxyn is already cranky when I ask them how is she. Then when I get home, they tell me that Maxyn gets cranky at a certain time. That time is when I usually arrive at home. The thing is, since we had several long weekends recently, there are too much work that needs to be done with less time. Yes, that means I had to go overtime the past few days. So when I call them at the time I’m supposed to be home already, I always hear Maxyn crying and even shouting.
Amazing, eh? I tried reading online about this topic but most results I get from Mr. G are about psychology. I just find it amazing because my Maxyn is only 4 months, turning 5 months actually on the 8th.
There’s one result though that I find interesting. And I agree with it, consistency helps build an infant’s sense of time. Perhaps that registered to Maxyn early, thus the crankiness.
How about you, does your baby and not-so-baby-anymore has developed sense of time?
