Dear Papa, I'm Not Born Yet But This Is What You Should Know About Me

( words)
*For representational purpose only.
Dear papa,

Yes, I know this is surprising to you that I am talking to you right now since you must not have imagined that we both will talk on this auspicious day. But I was waiting to tell you something and I wanted to give you a surprise by talking you. Papa, no I will not call you papa. You will now be my baba, whom my aai loves the most in the world. I know there are many complications in your life and in aai's, but baba, I assure you no matter what the future is, you will be the first person who will see me laughing, crying, my day to day activities, my crawls and I know aai will tell you each and every activity until I start talking. Then I don’t think that we will need any other intermediator between us and I can also work as your spy while you will protect me from my over-motherly and short-tempered and extra caring aai. We will have the strongest bond and my aai has made up her mind that sooner or later she will let me know who exactly you are and where you stand in my life.

Since it’s too early to let you know that what I think of you because I cannot even speak yet. As for now I am your unborn kid and I am not even in aai's womb yet but I know soon I will be there. I know I am in your heart and in aai's mind all the time.

I told God when I was wandering in heaven with some angels that please send me fast to them, and I took a sneak peek in his account book and I saw my name in the entry and delivery book. So yay! My number will come soon. Baba I am coming as fast as possible. Maybe around next year if everything goes well. I will be in your hand, and then next year, on this same day, I will be touching your feet and taking your blessings. The year after that I would be giving you some handmade card where I would hardly be able to write "happy father’s day my baba" with the help of aai. And the list will go on and on.

I will keep surprising you each and every year/day. I am too small to say this now, but baba thank you very much for taking care of my aai so much, we both know she is short tempered but she loves both of us. Keep loving her till I come in her lap and then I will help you manage her when she will be in her anger mode. And then we will talk man to man because she doesn’t understand a man's feelings. Don’t worry baba I will always be there for you. And I don’t need to worry because you will always be there with me in every phase of life. Baba please take care of yourself, and take care of my aai too, I love you baba. Bye for now and see you soon.

Yours truly, Your child
