Kiss the… ahem… tummy

7:30 in the morning is when sanj is wheedled awake by me. And one of my favourite methods is the Kiss the Tummy method.

Aish, mock-serious : I see a sleeping tummy… I am going to kiss that tummy…

Sanj (Suddenly awake, but pretending to be asleep): No… No… No!

Aish: Please, please, only once

Sanj: No, no no

Aish: Please, Only ONCE

Sanj: ONLY one

Aish: Kissing Sanj, thank you, thank you

That little exchange pretty much puts the day on a nice track, esp when sanj says, “Amma, stay with me, dont go to office”. Sanj is (and has always been) very matter-of-fact about my working. She rarely cries when I leave for office (Though she never lets me go out alone to any other place). and even the “Dont go to office” is extremely rare, and is delivered in such happy tone that one doesnt get melancholic about it.

Jeez, shes only three and I am already worried about her growing old!


Sanj’s Bday

Sanjana turned 3 on the ninth – and we had a PARTY! the following sunday. Sudeep can rest happy – I ordered a “DORA THE EXPLORER” Cake. deciding on the cake was problem, actually. I kept thinking Sanj would kill me with questions on whether DORA would be hurt, how can I cut her and so on and so forth. So I got these ballons, streamers (crisscrossing the ceiling), A candle which said “3”. Good fun, in all. The kids got Jam & Kissan Pichkoo Smiley bread slices (Copyright Aishwariya V), the parents, pizzas. I actually made some 20 glassses of lemonade. I wouldnt serve Sanjana Fanta, would I? So why would others? Turns out, others would. Plus ofcourse, Sanj’s eternal favorites – Cheeselings. Sanj had great fun. 

Kodak Moments:

Sanj wants to play with one of her guests –

I – Sanj, call him and ask him to play with you

Sanj – Anna, please play with me (“Anna” is 5+)

Anna – Says nothing – the shy types

Sanj – Amma, I keep asking anna, Anna no play with me

Photos to come.
