Mom sent me this picture today. It’s showing Karan sitting in the front passenger seat of Mom’s car. If you look at the background of the photograph, there’s a clothes-stand in the backseat, which meant Karan would’ve been extremely uncomfortable sitting at the back. He normally doesn’t sit in the front because…well, he gets excited because it’s new for him (we’ve done trials in our quiet neighbourhood), and loves stuffing his face near the AC vents and we’re just afraid he might get upset and grab Mom while she’s driving on Emirates Road (she has to drive from one end of Dubai to Sharjah to take him to school and back).
But this day, she had no choice.
And this is him after they arrived home. He apparently sat all the way really happily, staring out the window and did nothing untoward. Fingers crossed he’ll keep this up. It’s a real milestone for us, that he sat from Sharjah to Dubai, on a journey that takes a minimum of 45 minutes (if there’s traffic at the National Paints roundabout, all bets are off…it could even take up to 3 hours). The only “problem” was that he got annoyed that the sun was bearing down on his hands. In the back seat, he doesn’t have to deal with any sunlight and sits happily in the shade. What a princess! 😀
So here is our darling Karan, in all his glory, in the front seat of our car.
