It is a girlie thing!

Priyanka's games are so unique to a girl. She gets hold of Karthik, combs him, feeds him as if he is her child or a toy.

Priya brings a bowl of rice, makes Karthik sit next to him and begins to feed him. In between, she reminds him to east fast and also she warns him that if he doesn't eat she will beat him. Then in between the meal she will remember Karthik needs water. So, she will call out to her mother and ask her to get one glass of water. Priya will let him to drink just one or two sips of water. Once, all food is over, she will promptly put the bowl into the sink and comes with a wet hand and wipes Karthik's mouth. Believe me I haven't seen anything more cute and funny!!
Interestingly Karthik equally enjoys the whole thing. If she feeds him, he eats up all the food without a fuss!!!

She will then get hold of him, pretend to give him a bath, brush his teeth and comb his hair and then take him to puja room to pray to God. Once he has offered his prayers, she will put on a bag and take him and pretend drop him to school, which is one of bedrooms. She insists he tells her a bye, after few seconds she goes and fetches him from school. The whole act is just too funny and adorable.

There were times, when I hated if i was touched me during my sleep. Now, I have two kick boxers sleeping on my either side. Sometimes, they put their entire legs on me, sometimes their hands and sometimes they just wake up and  put their head on my tummy assuming it is a pillow and drift off to sleep. Well, I neither mind it nor it distrubs my sleep. I like it all the time and  most times I find it amusing.

There were times, when I would snigger at smell of a baby's potty. Now, I peep into their diapers to check if they are all clear !!. I not only clean potty from them but many times from the floor, bed spreads and my dresses too. Ofcourse!! I reuse my dresses.

There were times, when going out to mall or friend's house for couple of hours meant, wearing good clothes and just leaving home. Now, going out means feeding the kids well, getting them dressed and packing - milk, biscuits, diapers, wipes, old newspaper and extra pair of kids clothes (just incase, you know!)

There were times, when going to a mall meant - shopping, movies (many times back to back) and dinner. Now, going to a mall means - kids play zone, toy shop, kid trains, doughnuts and defiantly no dinners.

There were times, when I would come from the mall, and just head to bed, well!!! I use to be so very tired, or atleast I thought so. Now, I just head to the kitchen, wash my hands, put something to cook / warm for the kids, change the kids and then I freshen up.

There were times, when I would puke if I even imagined someone puking or saw someone puking. Now, I have my little one puking all over me almost every other day and it doesn't matter to me.

There were times, when I never thought people appreciating me would give joy. Now, a word of appreciation for my little ones from anybody seems to be the most happiest and most fulfilling thing to ever hear.

There were times, when I refused to take off my left hand from the handle of the scooter fearing the worst. Now, I drive with my left hand on my little ones ears to protect them from wind, while I balance the scootere just in my right hand. [Hope my hubby doesn't freak out reading this.]

There were times, when I wouldn't have a cough or cold all through the year, now I am sure to have once in 3 months, courtesy my kick boxers.

There were times, when I couldn't open my eyes till 7:30 am in the morning. Now, even before the 6:30 am alarm goes off, I am up to ensure that the kids are fed and are all set for school.

Vaibhav Vaibhav!

I am totally lost for words for what Vaibhav did today.

Vaibhav started at Euro kids on 27th Oct 2014. He has been crying consistently at school. Upon advice from Deepa, my neighbour, who had formerly faced this situation. I began to talk to Vaibhav, why he needs to go to school, how he will become a big and good boy so on. I also added that, I will send him to school irrespective he cries or not, so rather he go happily and enjoy at school. Vaibhav understood this and he totally stopped crying.
But, he didn't want to go to school, so today when I was about to take him to school he made a face and said "Kaka banthu.. Kaka banthu"[Potty came]. I got a bit suspicious and asked him "Ninwagalu??"[Really]. He just kept repeating, but nothing happened. He was just faking it so that he doesn't have to go to school!!. Amazed that he could think and make up this reason to avoid school.

Another day, he came to me saying he wants to sleep. He slept on my lap and pretended to close his eyes, to avoid school !!

Couple of days ago, I got crayons for Karthik and instructed him to draw on paper and not walls or television etc. But Karthik, wouldn't listen and began drawing all over the showcase, so I went up to him and told him in a higher pitch voice "Didn't I ask you not to draw here.". Immediately, Vaibhav came running behind me and said "No, no, no" and began wiping Karthik's drawings with his little hands. :-)

Today, I went to pick Vaibhav from school. His co-ordinator cum teacher told that he is settling, and he is "Very Intelligent". I suddenly felt deep sense of pride and happieness beyond words. Not sure because it was totally unexpected or an emotion all mothers feel.

Vaibhav had been asking for Jamoon from last 2 weeks or so. Unexpectedly, milk broke and we make Rasgulla out of it. Like Jamoon, rasgullas were round too, but were white unlike Jamoon that are brown. When Vaibhav asked for Jamoon I gave him Rasgulla and told him those were Jamoons. Immediately, the smartie said "Brown Jammon beeku" [I want brown jamoons]. ROFL. Well!! I had thought I was smart, till then.
