Today, M went to Pennsylvania to play Volleyball. Did I mention? The man has restarted his passion after school years and is going crazy about it! I am saying passion as I have never, never seen him this interested in anything! He goes for practices at 11pms and 6ams. He works around and makes adjustments to his schedules and duties to make time for this practice. I am happy and glad to see him involved in something like this.
So, yeah he was out the door by 6am and I played dual role of mommy and daddy today 🙂 But, told Adi that I will not play as cool daddy buying them
8am – Made sweet and karam version of paniyaaram for breakfast with leftover dosa batter and fed the kids.
9:45am – Took kids to their respective classes at the local club. After the classes, all three of us played ping pong for a while. Another father/son duo joined us and it was an impromptu fun time. LHB tried to trick me to get snack from vending machine but I did not budge *proud look*
12pm – Took kids out for lunch to Taco bell. Another impromptu trip! This was a surprise to LHB as he started complaining at recent times that only Akka always gets to choose everything.
The complaining happened when we decided to dine out at Olive garden last weekend based on Adi’s choice. When asked, what is his choice assuming he would not be able to pick any, he surprised us all by yelling Taco bell! So, TB it was for today’s lunch!
1pm – Tamil homework time and parallel kitchen work (Idli batter prep)!
1:45pm – Give a shower to LHB allowing him to play in the shower with his toys for a while!
2:30pm – Quick clean of home, get ready to go to Tamil school.
3pm – Tamil school, today I volunteered as substitute at LHB’s class as his teacher was out sick. OMG! the kids kept us on toes, trips to bathroom and answering all their curious questions took more time than actual learning! This was my first time volunteering and it was a fun experience. I am happy to have chosen this in spite of the splitting head ache! Otherwise, my plan was to take some rest while waiting outside!
This is LHB at the Tamil school parking lot. He demands a click whenever he sees a different looking/colored car. And, the shirt he is wearing is special. Will write about it soon!
5pm – Back home, made dinner (Poha) and continued with cleaning home (never ending task *rolls eyes*)!
6:30pm – Took Adi to piano class while LHB stayed back with the just returned Appa!
8:30pm – Returned home! Loaded dishwasher, cleaned kitchen and finally finally stretched my legs in the couch!
11:30pm – Watched a Tamil comedy movie with kids, laughed out loud at couple of scenes, applied oil on Adi’s hair and wrote this post!
Oh, and yesterday Adi made a Chinese veggie dish for us. It was made of yellow peppers, carrot and all types of condiments and sauces. It was yumm! This is how she presented it to me 🙂
