Niti will monitor the food supply like milk powder, cereal, biscuits, snacks, milo and yakult to toiletries like tooth paste, shower gel and supplements for Little Edison. Whenever the supplies run low at my MIL’s house, she will replenish with the stocks from our home. If there is a need to buy, she will remind us during our weekly grocery shopping.
She constantly checked our food supply in the fridge. If there is any food or drinks that are going to expire, she will nag remind us to consume them before their expiry dates. I’ve never seen any rotten apple in the fridge for two years.
I really had a hard time letting go an efficient and trustworthy helper like her. My husband asked me not to talk about Niti in front of Little Edison because he didn’t want him to think about her. But obviously, Little Edison has forgotten about Niti. I’m glad that he is unaffected by her departure.
It seems like I’m the only one having a difficult time adapting to the lost of an invaluable helper. Although she is not perfect and she annoyed me on several occasions, I’ve locked away those bad memories. I can only remember Niti as a pretty decent young girl who treats Little Edison like her own brother. No matter how tedious it was, she tried her best to feed him, pacify him and cheer him up whenever he was irritated.
Now, the fear that resides deep in my heart surfaces again when we make that decision to change our helper. Will our new helper, Pin, loves Little Edison as much as we do? And that she will not ill-treat Little Edison in any way? Honestly, I do not know. After one week of observation, she seems to be very patient with Little Edison. She can handle the most challenging task, which is to feed our fussy little master.
I’m very busy re-adjusting to a whole new situation with a new helper at home. I have to have faith in her. I hope Pin will prove to me that she is as capable as Niti.
Yes, she definitely will.
