Aunt Anu is a friend of Tara’s mother.
She delivered a baby a few days back.
Tara and mother were visiting them.
The baby was fast asleep in a cot.
Tara loved babies.
Aunt Anu however looked very tired.
“I was up all nights” Aunt Anu informed Tara’s mother.
“The baby hardly slept in the night” she added.
“He sleeps only during the day” she explained.
No wonder Aunt Anu looked so tired, thought Tara.
Tara felt so sorry for her.
“You too were a day sleeper, Tara” Aunt Anu informed Tara with a smile.
“Your mother hardly had any sleep during the first few months” she added.
Tara was surprised to hear that.
She looked at mother.
“Yes you too used to be up at night” mother said with a smile.
Tara felt so sad for mother.
It must have been tough being a mother of a baby, thought Tara.
She felt more appreciative of her mother.
