First Day of School

15 Jul
First Day of (Pre)School, an important milestone for a very excited 3-year old and an equally excited mom. It is a promotion from daycare to close-to-the-real-school.
The highlight of the whole preschool adventure is arguably the ‘LUNCHBOX’. The bright red with white polka dots lunch bag is Jiya’s most prized possession these days. She wants to eat all her meals out of the lunch box, including breakfast and dinner. Although the irony remains that lunch is the least favorite meal to eat out of the lunch box, if you know what I mean 🙂
So continues the journey of many more such milestones, bright and beautiful, big and small!!

Happy Birthday to my Little Princess

2 Jul

Its been said many times and I’ll say again, they grow up so fast!! THEY REALLY DO. My little baby’s turned three and it does feel like just a few days back she was a tiny furball in my arms. I wouldnt have guessed at that time that this teeny weeny little being is soon going to have a personality of her own. And personality need not be directly proportional to height or age.

Speaking of personality, its simply amazing to see reflections of myself in her at times. Brings about a happy sense of pride, like scoring a brownie point. And my latest high came when she was more interested in reading ‘Little Miss Giggles’ than playing with my iPhone. Dont you just love those moments of parental satisfaction(maybe I am doing something right). And you want to lock them into a little box forever.

I have to admit though that I am doing a lousy job at recording these beautiful moments and being eight months pregnant is no help at all. Some days I have bouts of sudden anxiety that I need to stop these moments from slipping through my hands. Its going to be harder than ever as I realize that soon mommy space and time is soon going to be shared amongst a jealous toddler, a bawling and hungry infant, an ever-increasing list of chores and not to mention a husband and a job. And top it all up with the need for some PEACE OF MIND and SLEEP, of course!!

In short, I am terrified of how much of dysfunction I will be able to handle in the coming months. Inspite of the lurking unknown, its heartwarming to see my toddler wanting to caress and kiss her baby sibling who she cant understand wont stop kicking mommy. I think she is already teaming up with the baby and plotting our downfall. And I am loving it! I cant wait to sweep her up into my arms next month, something that I have missed doing SO MUCH for the past few months, especially on her birthday.

Happy 3rd Birthday to my little, ‘BIG’ girl :-))
