Best Of Moments

I’m sure all of you, must have come across some best of moments/quotes/excuses wrapped in extreme innocence and mostly with teary eyes and intense looks not by the great philosophers but by your very own blood, your kids…

Best Of Moments

Here, I go with few of the excerpts from my own experiences…:

Milk Saga

When he throws tantrums for not having milk…I show him his wrists and arms and tell him…’ if you want muscles like Dad, then milk is very important’, then flows the milk down his mouth to his tiny belly following this pattern…

Sip1,

Sip2,

High Five…

few more sips…few more high fives…

gaze the biscuit leftover floating in milk and let it sink…

few more Sips…

lick the chocolate sticking on the sides of the cup…

some more sips…

then bottom ups/ fan fan sip….(see the fan, turn the cup upside down for the last sip…)

still manage to save few drops,

Oh Mamma, there is last Baby Sip…

and Phew!!!

Milk is finally finished…

Once like my routine, I was forcing him to finish his glass, when popped out the classic piece of statement… “Jyada mota ho jaunga, toh bus(school bus) me kaise jaunga…” and my frowning brows turned straight and my straight lips turned to curved U…

Poop Pop

I know super contentment comes in small packets 😀 😛

That is when our kid goes to school with his stomach clean…then be it early morning ritual or a night before… Else our time meter kicks and we demand them to visit the very place Once More (to save us from the P anxiety pangs)…

I always allocate 10-15 min for his P sittings…

Regardless of the pressure…we make him sit and accompany it with Ooohh…aaahhh…oouucchhh sounds, making tight fists, to help him gear up, warm up…and either he doesn’t do it or does it in 14 min past and few seconds left for the last minute…

There were moments also when he took a bath…and while rubbing him, he disclose his secret desire of going to washroom (just few min left to catch his school bus), and I actually become the second ki sui of the clock…’Beta just some minutes /seconds left…do it fast…’.. and he is at his comfy best…water still dripping from his wet hair… talking and singing to us…

He has even composed a song to convey his DONE status…

‘Ho gaya ye jahan’

‘Ho gaya aasmaan’

Evening Outings

I make sure to take him out for a stroll or cycle ride in evenings when rest of his friends come out too and also to show him the varying shades of sky… He has fondness to see the sunset and the moon playing hide and seek in grey clouds…

But dressing him up is in itself a task…coz if it is a shirt or a trouser with buttons then he has to button up every single button… it seems to be a live super slow motion of buttoning up a dress…

Hold the button through the hole…

Ah…it slipped off…

Try again…

Caught u…

Drag it more through the hole…

Take rest when half button has crossed the hole WALL…

Gear up for the rest of it…

And here u go…one button is done…

REPEAT for rest of the buttons…

And then he wears his footwear…at times left ka right and right ka left and when told, corrects it…saying ‘mumma apne ulta pehna diya tha na…’

All these moments were just small snippets of what I see and hear the whole day. Umpteen number of them to observe, smile, sink them in for a lasting sweet memory. Loads to wait for and watch to…

    OMG, I have too many of these to share in one single comment, but yes, the little one sitting on the pot and singing her nursery rhymes is one of my favorites, that and the one where she keeps playing with her belly button when I am bathing her is also extremely cute.

    This was such a cute post 😀 I just couldn’t stop smiling from the beginning till I reached the end…
