24 days of blogging continuously !! WOW, I am surely giving a huge pat to myself !! And I hope I’ve not gone too much into the gyaan side and all 😉
All those new mothers out there, who are documenting every moment of their little one’s life in their blog – I envy you all. I didn’t think of documenting it in my little diary years back neither did I know about blogs and all that time. And even when I started blogging, I never wrote about day-to-day happenings with my girls…sigh ! Anyway, I’m trying my level best to remember all those little things from my memory and have them recorded here in this blog of mine.
The elder one always used to play with vessels and be in the kitchen with me. Even now, if I’m making dosa for her, she’ll come and sit in the kitchen, talk to me and eat there itself. She feels happy in the kitchen, just how Nigella says 😀 And so perfectly, she has chosen her profession to be a Chef !
The younger one, aaahhhh, I remember that her cousins used to call her as “Advisor”, as she is always at it – advising others on what to do and how to do. As she keeps learning the right way of doing things from me, I can see her imparting that knowledge to others, even while playing. Many a times, that has been her complaint too – that other school kids are hesitant to play with her because she is always telling them what is right and what is not. And now rightly, she has chosen to study human behaviour and stuff and want to become a “Counsellor” – How apt !!
There are things from your childhood which follows you always….we just need to look for the signs.
And when I was looking at some old pictures from the album, there were some photos which told a whole story…
There is a picture of the elder one on an elephant and recently I had written about her love for elephants – that’s such a cute picture.
The girls learning to swim and with their new swimming costume – damn cute I say !
All the funny faces the little one makes during picture clicking – she’s adorable with her glasses, which always tends to fall to the tip of the nose and her peeping tom eyes through that gap…sigh…do I miss those little girl days !!
Like the time in the cable car, how scared the girls were initially. But a little later, they both enjoyed the whole ride.
How wonderful it was to see them doing the rides and playing the silly bike games just because they have to follow suit their cousin brother!
And how the girls endlessly wore only shorts or pants, to copy their cousin brother – he was the super hero for them ! He even formed a group called “Extreme team” with all this little girl sisters and issued membership cards and all – super cute, I say 😀
How wonderful it was to see the elder one ride the cycle without supporting wheels and when she realized that she has done it on her own and her dad was not holding the cycle, she was super thrilled with her riding skills.
While my elder one is too good with drawing, painting, arts and making hand-made things, the younger one can’t draw a straight line using a scale. But she is too good with music and a natural drummer too.
And how the picture of beach and waves made me smile at the fun times we had getting wet in the beach !
How the elder one started clicking pictures on her own and some of her pictures are too good for their lighting effects and angle. The flowers she clicks are too good, I say ! And the B&W ones too. And her subject for Food photography has helped her understand more intricate things to do with lighting and how that affects the outcome of the picture. Its interesting, how I’m learning a lot of things from them.
