Happy Vinayakar Chathurthi 2018

Its almost going to strike 12am and I woke up at 4:30am today. Still just couldn’t go to bed without publishing this post.

Please accept my sincere apologies for not replying to all your lovely comments and wishes in earlier post. I will get to them very soon.

Happy Vinayakar Chathurthi to all my readers.

Thanks to Amma for making the Kozhukattai and sundal so I could focus on making of Ganesha. Adi the high schooler is already busy so I made this Ganesha.

Inspired from me, LHB made this Ganesha and decorated almost same as mine πŸ™‚ To me it looked like a pillayar resting with his hand as support to his head on the right and stretching his legs to the left πŸ™‚ And I have no idea what he drew on that paper. Will ask him tomorrow morning. The kids were off to sleep before I returned from Adi’s back to school night. Oh that deserves a separate post πŸ™‚

The little boy’s tantrums has definitely come to a control with parent’s presence. Big thanks to them.

LHB’s new beginning

LHB has started Kindergarten today. Beginning of a new chapter in his life. I hope he copes up with this journey,Β makes loads of friends and grows as a well rounded human being. After home it is the school where he spends most of his time. Hope it stays as an enjoyable journey for him.

We woke up early in the morning (thanks to Akka’s early morning routine), did all morning routine with no big fuss, prayed God, did our jingu chika dance ritual and reached school ahead of time.

He said no hair styling and pictures but agreed to do them after reaching school. I acted quick pulling out the styling gel kept hidden in my bag, brushed his hair and we took loads of pictures. Happy mommy πŸ™‚

That is his school head teacher and they made it so smooth for the kids to adapt this change of routine.

It’s official

I am a high school mom now πŸ™‚ The girl has started her high school journey today. I hope she enjoys this high school tenure, has loads of fun and stays responsible. She has a bus to catch at 6:45am in the morning for next 4 years. That means the poor Amma has to make her lunch dabba and breakfast ready by 6:30am!!!

We prayed and did our family ritual of jingu chikka dance before heading to the bus stop. Appa, LHB, M and myself were hiding in the bushes closer to the bus stop as the girl strictly denied our appearance in the bus stop. How can I let her go so easily without seeing her blushing?

So, when she was about to board the bus she was telling her friend that “My mom will be here somewhere taking pics” and was searching for me while I walked up to her and clicked this pic. The moment she realized my presence she turned around. A moment that will be etched to my memory for a very long time!

And its my birthday today! Out of all the days, today is the day I noticed a grey hair in my head! Seriously!!! Signs of growing old I guess 😦

And parents are here for a month. Amma made paruppu urundai kuzhambu, beans usili and vada curry today. What more can I ask for?

Trying to live every moment with them as their stay is short.

LHB deserves a separate post. All his terrible two tantrums that were saved for years are thrown at us as if there is no tomorrow. I am just hanging at the edge waiting for his school to reopen in 2 days. Phewwww!!!!

Howdy all?
