‘Dear FirstCry team,
Hi…..I’m Rosine from Delhi and I have a 3-and-half year old daughter named Gianna. Like most babies her age, she is fond of all the different animation movies. So after dinner she usually watches some of her favourite movies like Barbie, Baby’s day out, Barney, or Nemo the fish.
Finally when she’s tired and wants to sleep she comes to me and says “Mamma sleeping time”.
After brushing her teeth and wishing goodnight to her grandparents she holds my hand and leads me to her story book shelf and picks up a few for herself…some of her favourite story books are Red Riding Hood, The Little Mermaid and Cinderella – to name a few.
I have to go through all the books and read out loud to her and sometimes explain to her what is happening and answer all her questions…
After finishing her stories, she gives me a good night kiss and then holds on firmly to her teddy…she loves to hold on to her bedtime teddy every time she goes off to sleep and that teddy has been with her since she was 3 months old…
Once she lies down after hugging the teddy, within a few minutes she is in her own dreamworld…sound asleep……
Rosine Reny Verghese
Mum to Giana’
