A lazy mama

Writting this blog is of least priority and so I almost always miss out on updating it. Sorry MLS, forgive mama for being such a procastinator. It seems mama is suffering from blogger’s block.

nevertheless, coming back to updates, you have comfortably settled in you playgroup. So much so that now when it’s a holiday you insist on going to school. And today morning you told me the name of your friends from school– Manchikka and Kabir. Now I don’s whether you have pronounced them correctly but I found it very intriguing that you have already made friends. You have also started singing rhymes that are taught in school and that too with actions. It such a joy to watch you do your own thing.

Also, one of your activities is role play. You love to be my mama, scold me and then console me. When I mock cry, you wrap your tiny arm around my neck, make me lie on your lap and would say “Koi baat nai baby, koi baat nai.”

You are such a pleasure to be with. Today morning while I was getting ready to go to office you said, “Mama I won’t cry, aap jao.” Not that you cry but at times you get cranky. Am surprised to notice that you have become so mature that you what is expected of you. But at times you also drive mama up the wall. But then what is my MLS without her tantrums, foot stomping and yelling.

Missed milestones

Sorry MLS, i have not been very regular with updates. That you have been almost weaned from bottle feed when you started your preschool should have found a mention. For a couple of days you were completely off the bottle but you were hardly drinking any milk. Despite our repeated monkey acts all you could gulp down was half a glass of milk in the entire day. That you are just 2.3 and your bones need all the calcium couldn’t be negated. To top it you had just started school. So mama decided to keep your morning bottle feed intact and the rest of the day you are comfortable having your milk from a glass. Not that you drink milk from a glass with a smile but we have to tell you endless stories to make you gulp down a glass.

On the playgroup front you have fared very well. You cried your lungs out the first three days and mama was almost panicky. She thouhgt that maybe the school thing started a little too early for you and should have waited till you turned 3. But you proved me wrong on the fourth day. Though you threatened me that you will cry you were an angel when your cab arrived. You happily went away but a quizzical expression was still rooted on your face. Now you look forward to going to playschool. Before leaving for school every day you threaten me that you will cry but go away quite happily. When mama asks you what you did in school, your response is usuallly “Pata nahin kya kiya”. Though you tell me that you wished your madam, I wonder how much of it is true.
