Aruvi – Yestreday watched this movie with Adi. A soul stirring intense movie. The suffering of a young girl for no mistake of her. It made me cry at the end and had a discussion about the movie with Adi. About trust and giving benefit of doubt to people. How the girl’s life would have been if her father chose to have a little more belief in her. A must watch for those who like to watch movies with intense subject and not just for time pass.
Trouble – Recent board game addiction at home. We settled in a blanket with pillows and LHB finally played it by rules last night. It was the perfect way to call it a day.
Bread/Onion bajji – Another recent add on. I am not for deep frying often but somehow seeing the family craving for this and the way it gets polished off in few seconds, I decided to make this on lazy evenings just to bring together the family with food and to create memories.
Tamil dress – On the occasion of Pongal, I dressed up the boy with veshti (dhoti) and embroidered shirt. He named the attire as “Tamil dress” and kept checking when can he remove his “Tamil dress” 🙂 🙂
Almost 5 – Yup, the little honey bun of the family is going to almost 5 and he has a beeg list of what he is going to do when he turns 5. Some of them are
- share his toys
- not scream at home
- do studying everyday with Amma
- play games by following instructions
- not eat junk
Basically, anything that is a challenge for him now are instantly added to “I am not going to do it” list when he is 5 year old. I only hope things don’t get aggravated after 5 *reality check*
No junk – We went to a friend’s home for dinner on Saturday and when they were about to share a piece of brownie with me, my boy came in between and said “my mom doesn’t like to eat junk”. I blushed instantly but felt a pinch when I realized how nice would it be if its a true statement.
All I wana say is how pretty that blanket is..! (run)
lol.. I like this blankie too 🙂 🙂
Sounds like a full day. Will read what Aruvi is about before watching the movie. Can’t do intense subjects these days. Makes me very emotional. Deep fried stuff-i avoid too but once in a few months especially when its so cold outside is a must yaa! As for the board game-I am actually surprised LHB actually sat for a board game-Sam is doing it only now. I cannot imagine him sitting down at 5! Good job LHB!
his teacher recommended RS! He also hardly sat initially. I have been trying for a month and we always have to wrap up in middle as he messes up the board. Yesterday was the first time he sat through the entire game and followed instructions too.. I am glad for these board games as it makes him put down his b*m b*m at one place for a while 🙂 🙂 Today bought Hi Ho cherry-o.. I want to spend more time with him playing these board games.
I read this twice today about the movie..
Board games do sound exciting and 5 years old wowowow..
watch it with subtitles if you could handle intense subject. I was very much impacted by the movie.
