Babushka talks :)
I know .. most of you come here to read about Babushka:) So,I figured its time for another one of Babushka posts.
Babushka has an opinion about everything and not just random opinions..but she actually thinks things through.
Like last night,she just wouldn’t fall asleep..I tucked her in,lay in her bed and slipped out,after she fell asleep.. and within half an hour she woke up crying..this happened two more times and finally,I asked her to move to my bed. And what do you know?She slept through the night,after that.. even if I went to bed,after nearly 2 hours!!
So this morning,I asked her,’Oh Babs,what will you do when I go to the hospital?’ and very confidently she answered,’Oh Mamu can take me to Ms.Donalds’..My cousin in moving to Melbourne this weekend and so,we are all super excited about him coming.Then I asked her, who would put her to sleep,feed her,bathe her,dress her..and she systematically answered Papa for everything..except for combing her hair,because,Papa’s can’t comb hair..only Mommies can!
I asked her what will you guys do for food?Eat out or cook? And she said,Well Papa can make khichdi or rice..LOL! yeah she knows that in the last few months,whenever Mumma’s not well,Papa comes home and makes Khichdi..:D
She has names picked for the baby..and No,I am not allowed to tell anyone! ‘Because,its a secret!’
She is just so understanding about the whole thing,it breaks my heart and makes me proud at the same time.. Everytime,I double up in pain,because of my torn muscle,she comes and rubs my back.
Last few days,I have been having painful contractions and when that happens,the muscle and the contraction,both together,make me stop and brace myself.. And she stops whatever she is doing and comes and hugs me,saying,’May be cuddles could make you feel better…’ if that doesn’t work.. she rubs my back,or hands or face,kisses me and says..’ there my kisses will make the hurt go away..’ Mostly,by then,I feel better.. 🙂 And say thank you.. and she is so happy.
She is soo soo eager to help.. even if she is tired and I ask her to give me a something from the bottom shelf,she pipes up,’one big bowl(or whatever it is I need) coming up,Mumma..Don’t you worry,I am right here!’
Babs and SD are getting closer..they plan things together,keep each other entertained..:) And every now and again,Babushka wants to call up her Papa to talk to him about something IMPORTANT!!
For his B’day,last week..we went present shopping,after I picked her up from school on Thursday evening. SD was going to pick us up. We went from one store to another and she didn’t like anything. I liked a sports watch that I thought would make a nice present..but she said no..and insisted we go to EB games..the place where SD buys his PS3 CDs from. And we waited there for SD.She refused to go home,till he didn’t go inside and pick up a gift. And she knew exactly what she wanted!!! A Power steering for his car racing games.Then she insisted we go get a cake.. from a cake shop,all the way over,2 suburbs away! And he did it!!!
SD has always been a no-fuss-on-my bday kinda guy..but he is no match against a determined 4 year old Babushka!! 🙂
I have so much more to write.. but I guess,I will stop here today :)More later.. till then,take care!
