Happy Diwali

Last year was Anushka's first Diwali- she was about 2.5 months old. Her paati stitched a pavadai for her from my paati's ( see my post Cheers Paati) sari blouse piece.

Now the pavadai is like a midi on Anush.

Girl! You have grown( see her more recent pic in her appa's angavastram) and so has our delight in your antics/ escapades/ exploits.

Many more "Happy Diwalis" to you baby and to all of you out there! And Id Mubarak too.

Off to Mumbai for a break.

hahahaha! a little out of context here but loved your "naam ke vaaste" post. N and I are in the same situation. I've retained my maiden name and we both get tagged by my name *grin*. We too do not have a marriage certificate and since we do not look close to marraigable age, we're going to be in a lot of s*** someday!!

Ok, finally here's my take on the heights! I thought I'd do one without getting Aadi into the picture....but looks like he's the picture, these days.

Height of intrusiveness: An acquaintaince visiting our home takes one look at the curtains and says "these are lace - how do you guys do it,
without the whole world being able to see through the windows?"

Height of being offensive: People taking one look at Aadi and saying "O he's such a beautiful boy. He must take after his father!"
Yes, thank you for the compliment!

Height of taste: Aadi refusing food, but chewing on the paper napkin used to wipe his face.

Height of happiness: Aadi's giddy laugh when we put him in the bucket swing at the park and give him a shove

Height of blues: Celebrating festivals just by yourself.

Height of wonderment: When I look at people with 8 or 10 kids, instead of thinking 'how do they manage to raise so many' I wonder 'when and how did they manage to conceive so many?'

Height of possessiveness: Aadi pushing his father aside, so he can hug his Ma instead.

Height of neatness: Aadi neatly arranging into piles the contents of the dustbin he has just knocked onto the floor.

Height of peace: When Aadi sleeps zzzzzzz....

Height of materialism: My 16 month olds clothes occupy more shelves than my husband and my clothes put together.

Height of loosing value: My mom lamenting how she hasnt seen her grandson - and now he's 16 months old. The fact that she hasnt seen her own daughter since the last 2 and half years is completely forgotten.

Height of divine justice: The girl who invariably gave dirty glances to parents of noisy kids at restaurants, is now blessed with a noisy brat herself.

First time here. Anushka looks adorable in both the pics. My daughter is 2.5 months old this Diwali. No "pavadai" for her though!
Happy Diwali and have a nice break in Bombay!
