Happy Feet

Saw Happy Feet . Finally. It is so cute. Adorable misfit ( tone deaf and fuzzy ) turns into the hero. It reminds one of Jonathan Livingston Seagull - a bird that dares to be different from the pack and is ostrasized for it before it finally braves the odds and proves to be of use to the community. And I did not know so much about penguins. The father nurtures and the moms go out fishing. I loved the songs, all of them. Anush did not watch the film as i had hoped she would. But she was drawn to the dances and the peppier songs. She has taken to doing whirls and shaking her arms about in a more defined dance.


More on Anush. She repeats the choicest things from what I say.
  • I said" You must move your butt in or you will fall off the chair" She chanted "butt" again and again in great delight.
  • "Are you eating vada, baby?" - she kept saying" vada baby"
  • I was on the phone and said "Wow" to my MIL and Anush went woooooooowwwww! in the very same congratulatory tone

She did the most moving thing last night. I get pampered by my mother with a head massage, weekly once. I get the oil and the comb and then the moda. I was just fetching the former two last nght, when Anush noticed and got the moda for me to the exact spot where it is done. So now I am indulged by both my mom and my daughter!!


This is what they call heaven.

yeah.. kids say the darndest things... and I think they start of as genuinely helfpul... my son carries away trays and teacups after guests leave and fetches his dad's slippers and takes away his shoes when he comes back from office. i dont know where along the way they forget all this!

First, itchy writes about her yearning for a daughter and now you are almost rubbing it in about how wonderful and precious daughters are...please have mercy on us who parent only naughty li'l boys...jus' kidding!

I really love your daughter's wardrobe...nice colection there, I must add.
We just bought Cars dvd....my boy loves it and I did too, maybe I will get "Happy feet" next.

All of you - Thank you so much on Anush's behalf

She does have a lot of clothes( kid- she had 7 paavadais of which 3 are pattu) and most of them are pretty cute like most baby's clothes are

i would love to have a boy without going thru pregnancy again

will see "cars"

Something to Say said...

now I want a daughter too....

Coffee said...

AWE!!!! Lucky mum!!!!!

I am sure Anush will like "Cars" too. I liked Cars better than Happy Feet. The latter started out good but was a little hastily wound up I think.

How enchanting to see you are being pampered by your mother as well as daughter! May these blissful days continue forever!!
