Dusting the cobwebs…
…off my virtual home 🙂
Today is my first kid-free day 🙂 The girls are at school and daycare and I am not at work.I have a lot of housework to catch up on but I think all that can wait,I NEED to blog today. I resisted facebook also for a while,but I am addicted and I have no shame in saying that 😀
Anyway,how are you all? Its been so long..I am well,we are all well- I think we are sort of adjusted to our new lifestyle 🙂 Daycare drop offs are still tearful,but atleast now there are two carers that Anan loves and so when they are in the room,I can walk out happy,inspite of her tears.She walks up to them,hugs them/sits on their laps and waves a teary goodbye.But I know she settles with them quickly.Today,when I dropped her,she was the same,but her favorite carer,was asking her about her toys-She took two Smurfs and a Koala to daycare today.LOL! yes,she likes to keep her hands full..some days for school pickup,she takes along 3 DVDs or two Koalas or 3 chipmunks..Don’t ask!!!
As for Aadi..*sigh* She is growing up soo quickly..she reaches up to my shoulder and will soon be taller than me.Yesterday,she had a birthday party to go to and she wrapped her friend’s present herself and so neatly too.She wants to learn how to crochet and gets mad at me if I don’t have the time to teach her.She is so insightful and understands reason now..We went to the zoo,sometime during the Easter break and on our way out the girls were picking soft toys. The first one Aadya picked up was $35. I told her,if she gets that,she will not get another toy that she was waiting for a long time,because $35 is too expensive. So,she went around the store,and found the cheapest softie..it was $5 but,I was so proud of her for understanding the value of money.Not once did she fret that Ananya got something else,a bigger softie.In her words,she is so little,she doesn’t understand Money!
Right now,she is saving up for a jumper and just needs $5 to make up the total.She does chores,to earn her money.I offered to give her the extra $5 and she said,”But that would be cheating”.SP(formerly known as SD) and I just look at her in awe,most of the time and wonder..WOW! We created her!.and then she has her whining fit and then we look at her and wonder,”WOW!We created her???”
Speaking of SP,he has started a new job and is quite excited about all the new responsibilities..He is a workaholic and the busier gets,the happier he is.
Before I stop,I have to share this :
Last night,after we tucked the girls in bed-
Anan : Elsa,Wake up Elsa
Aadi : What is it,Oona? I told you I can’t play with you .
Yup! My girls have got the Frozen-fever.
I better stop now and make the most of kid-free day..xoxo
