..and if I dont write just few lines about finishing school in a few days from now I will be guilty for ever.So my dear AB finishes his first year Pre school in 3 days and every mom on the block is wondering about the time flying by and all that. No more waking up by early 7 I am sure the  long days are going to make us very very lazy.But still kudos to the system which taught our boy so many new things and mainly enjoy the process of learning.

But O'Course

 There is a little boy in our house who tries to answer many questions we put him when he comes from school.And when some questions involve some thinking and some explaining to do then we tend to hear a slang in a octave note with the stress on 'B'ut O' Course which is the version of his saying But of Course. The point is not if the words are correct for him to choose but that it should be replicated once heard from some one in school.Period.

Akhil sitting on the railing of the park facing the road all by himself . Talking to himself about the big dump truck with gaaarbage( as he puts it).I go and sit with him and he tells me..'Amma I love 'aaassh'( short cut to being outside , roaming from one park to another and just being on the road)..

.Me : I know. I know.

Had a good time having lunch and play time both at the park today.

'I know Amma' I know' ...I know'

These are the words Akhil spoke to me in the morning when I told him his cars are all over the place.Couple of years later I would have no memory of it and I wanted to capture here the surprise on my face when I heard them and realized that my baby is no longer a baby but a 'boy' or a grown toddler. 

So today Akhil stopped crying when I told him I will be reading the 'The very hungry caterpillar ' and we went through the book a whole 3 times from the morning. I think he seems to like the idea that a caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly.

We tried to make him write a few letters on board but were met with running around with his scooter without 'looking at us in the eye'.In one round of running he exactly resembled pocoyo.Hurray for school tomorrow.

No I don't have anything to say ..considering that the Internet is brimming with opinions and  ideas and DI Y's ,cookery tips and what not. Don't even bother to read the next lines because I don't have anything to say to anyone at ALL.

Just that time has been indeed flying and this space is very lonely without me.The kid is changing fast and he thinks he is the parent now , when he tries to wake me up in the morning by tickling me , sitting on my head, getting me a book to read and saying at the TOP of his voice ..UP UP UP Amma.

To cook in the morning or cook in the night.

This has become the most debated and thought intensified question of the day. Yes we Indians cook only in the morning in the bygone days when there  was a servant maid who cleaned the house, some one cleaned the dishes and some one cleaned the kid /kids. But  the modern day house wife has all this into one leaving the mornings with a bizarre sequence of cleaning thyself, cleaning the kid and cleaning the home + plus cooking fresh food for all the three mouths. Plus the obligatory incense and light bearing ceremony to  God. Try to talk her in between these sequence of events and you might get a bark for reply.Tired, irritated and almost on the verge of writing a rant by throwing everything on the floor and just sulking before laptop. And thus pops the question once again should she cook in the morning and leave everything thought of fresh food into the past and cook in the night??

Such goes on the thought process of the Indian housewife who is always in the kitchen and always bugged up with some work.Poor thing.

A new post here is something.I was reading the other day my old blog and came upon a small snippet which the kiddo has done a few months back. It was surprising since I read and thought I almost would have forgotten the whole thing if I had not written it down.

I pick the kid from his play time to see him all red faced and over excited. The redness on the face was almost alarming. Then the lady said that it was because of the sweater coat combination that day.So much for over protection. Before this turns into a mommy blog I came across an article on tastefully doing houses and how much would I spend if a chance is given on just cutlery or most importantly beautiful mugs. Maybe a whole rack of them. Really would there be enough space ??At any time in any home??
