For You Dear Son...

As you grow older, I have this feeling that I may forget all the wonderful moments that make your childhood the best thing that ever happened to me...It's sometimes very easy to forget what a blessing you are, especially when the day to day grind overshadows the miracle that you are (or for that matter any baby is)..
So here goes the list of things that I'd like to read about when you finally grow up and move on...In MBA jargon, this post is supposed to lift my spirits during my "empty nest" phase of life :P

Feb 27th - You had your "choroonu" on this day. I chose the family temple over the more popular destination of Guruvayoor, because I didn't want it to be a hurried affair. I decided on the venue and then informed others, including your dad as I didn't want other opinions to cloud my intuition of what's best for you...The ceremony went off beautifully..You had your first train journey en-route to the temple...

Apr 20th - You had your first hair cut...At home, by your doting grandma...She took pains to style your hair and you looked amazing in your mushroom cut...As I buried your first lock of hair, I could feel the ache that all mothers complain of when their kids grow up - It's a mixture of love, pride and 'letting go' ...

Around this time you also had your first tooth...I came home in the evening and when your grandma told me that you had cut your first tooth, I was sooo excited like a small child myself...I kept pleading with you to show it to me and you in all innocence smiled back and just thrust your tongue forward ! By around night time, I finally got a glimpse of it when you yawned...

You are also one naughty fellow...you have by now already scared the life out of me by falling down from the bed, pouring soup all over you and then banging your head against the seemingly safest of toys ! And all of this, under my watchful eyes...Your dad keeps saying.."for many more to come" , everytime I get upset at each of these instances...:)

You love travelling and you love music...Just like you mom and dad...

And so leaving behind your current hot favs in the order of your preference:
1. Madhuraikku Pokathedi - Azhagiya Tamizh Magan
2. Jai Ho - Slumdog Millionaire
3. Masakkali - Delhi 6
Any of these songs in the background will make feeding you seem like the easiest task ...The other sure shot way to feed you is to have your brother around...Seeing him you get mesmerized !

P.S : No, I am not becoming a mommy blogger...Soon posts of international significance shall follow ;)...Despite my mad schedule I found time to vote...Now eagerly waiting for the results as for the first time, I have a favorite candidate...I am also finding time to read up on swine flu and Obama's performance evaluation at the 100 day mark...In short life has fully returned to normal...And it didn't take as long as I expected :)
