Do we seek problems to fix?
Today I am worried about my 20 month old A’s eating problem in daycare. It has been three days since she has not touched her lunch in daycare. The teacher relays this to me when I pick her up in the evenings. After waiting for two days, yesterday I sent lunch from home to try, still the result is the same. Last evening, as the teacher was telling me that she did not eat, I opened one small box from her lunch from home. A just grabbed it and finished all the watermelon cubes. We were both surprised. So it is not that she does not like the food. We are still baffled about the cause and are working together to solve this.
Meanwhile it kept me thinking, I always have something or the other I worry about. It is either the pick of S’s new school, A’s eating, my job, quality of my married life, and what not! It is always what is the most important thing at the moment that I worry about. If A is sick, all the other things are irrelevant. But if everyone is healthy, I manage to find some new thing to worry about – something like does S hate me for leaving her in ESP? And some of these days I just leave work early so S does not go to ESP.
The bottomline is that I am always looking for a problem to fix!! What are you all trying to fix right now?
