Midnight Hunger

Restless on bed
He requests for more
More milk

Scoop the milk powder
Drop it into milk bottle
Close it tightly
Shake! Shake!
Dissolving milk powder with water

My head stuck out of kitchen door
Nobody is there
My son?

Carry the milk bottle
Plucking the nipple into his
Hungry mouth
Interrogate who plays door
Nod nod
Confess during
Glug glug
Drinking his milk hungrily
Replying his impatience

Finish drinking milk
Letting go the milk bottle to me
Droopy eyes
Drink water and
Dozes off to dreamland

My toddler requested to have another round of milk because his stomach growled. While I was shaking the milk bottle, suddenly my room door creak and bam. Sticking my head out, nobody was there. Upon entering my room and plucking the milk bottle to him, I gently asked him the one who opened and closed the door. Nodding while drinking his milk, he confessed. Huh? I do wonder the reason for him doing so. Probing it to know he was being impatient. After his milk, he dozed off easily.

Cornflakes & Carrot Juice

Shake! Shake!
Pour! Pour!
Pouring cornflakes into the
Sea of carrot juice in a bowl
It tastes weird, but edible.

As I opened the fridge, the soymilk was gone. Only a bottle of carrot juice was inside. So be it. A feeling of experimenting emerged. So the cornflakes were poured into the bowl of carrot juice. Though it tasted weird, but still edible.
