Tooth Fairy...

Have you heard of this folklore...The tooth fairy is a fantasy figure ... when a child loses a baby tooth, if its placed beneath the bed pillow, the tooth fairy will visit while the child sleeps, replacing the lost tooth with a small payment..:-)

I remember tracking n recording every milestone of was day after day during the initial days..slowly it moved to month after month...after her 1 st year, I almost stopped...May be coz, I got busy with other work or got over the "new Mum syndrome".
Now, after a long time, im registering something which reiterates, my baby is growing..
Her baby tooth has been shaky for the last few days...when she got bewildered...worried...what will happen if it falls...a little consoling and making her understand that everybody goes thru this, put her fears on a backstage.
We did tell her what she should do,if it falls at school...:-)
Well,today the front tooth did fall...don knw why...we both were pretty excited...we quickly washed it and put it safely inside a box...
Googled and found very interesting facts and different customs n traditions followed across the globe for this what we look at as a "simple normal growing pattern".
Now shreya is one tooth down...and gives a bridge smile !!
And is already worried about what the "boys" wud tease !!!!!

Shreya's Graduation Day

Kinder Garten Graduation Day for Shreya...a farewell day too...a day to mark our first foot in to Primary classes...and a goodbye to our association with kg...

Every teacher cud be one of the best event managers !! The entire event was well rehearsed,coordinated,organised, !! The tinytots gave us a wonderful entertainment with dancing,singing,skit...

It was lovely to watch Shreya receiving the certificate with the robe and later on transforming in to fairy for one of the programmes...

While we cud have jus hired her costume, we jus wanted to take that little bit of effort to put everything together..which I always enjoy doing...
The white gown was somethig that we found difficult to grab...scouting various shops, atlast we found it at Histyle and good for us, we got it in a SALE !!
Crown-we already had.Footwear at Kobbler sale.Wand and a few accessories frm Toys r us.Wings frm Santosh.Vrinda's earrings completed the entire makeover...

Felt really proud when her pic was shown atleast 5 times,part of the Annual report slide show talking about kids who won prizes in inter school contests..;-)
At the end, while we were leaving,lotta teachers and the Principal were standing at the entrance.Usha mam introduced us to the Principal- This is the Shreya Vijayanand whose name I was repeating again n again in the Annual Report !!
What better intro do we need???

Finally, I almost choked when we bade goodbye to our dear Swapna Miss...A word more, I wud have had tears rolling down..:-(

And more so, when she told Shreya- Do participate in a lotta progs and contests like the way you are doing now.But you don have to worry..Your Mom will take you and encourage you to do...:-) Well, that was one big compliment frm the teacher.

Yes, its a sign of growth, but we will miss all the Fun,Activities,Projects..and most of all our dear down to earth,humble teachers !!

A Day which will be chiseled and etched in memories...A Day which reminds you ,that your kid is growing fast....

Dak Dhina Dhin...

Well, there are a lotta things that I want to pen down...and yes, this wat I keep telling myself every now and then...But then, I just don get the mood to sit down n blog...
But here is something I jus wanna quickly register here before it sweeps my memory...
Shreya may be a good dancer in future..but she might be a better choreographer is wat I feel...I want to get back to this page after many years and say, Dint I get it right that day??? :-))
I have many points to justify this...
1.She loves to make others dance,choreographing steps for them...and according to wat the person can actually do..and even Thatha Paatti arent spared ;-)) Yes, I did say Thatha..;-)))
2.The steps differ according to music...classical,kuthu,jus a ballet(!!)
3.And she can jus come up with a concept for the choreography as well...
4.Costumes change accordingly
5.Its spontaneous
6.If I criticise a particular step, she can comeup with another one instantaneously

Okie..these are jus my observations...
Ultimately, dance is something that she enjoys atleast as of now..hope she continues to withold her interest...

A straight line in an ECG- Continued

Since there has been a gap between my earlier post and this one..and its supposed to be a continuation,I sat down to list my Ups...
Well, how much ever I could was only the achievements of Shreya which was enveloping my mind...isnt there anything else???
Now that is what I call a normal motherhood (Jus tried a Terence's signature comment on DID !!)
You crib on one hand,and you are proud of your little one on the other...And yes, I am normal too..:-)) ( Thats a solace)
The prizes have indeed been pouring during the last couple of months...I was controlling myself from posting it on any social networking site..;-) people scare me about eye casting n drishti...don know whether to believe it or not..But I just wanted to stay safe.

The additions are - She did win 1 st prize at our own Nature Dream contest for Action Rhymes.It was 1 st Prize in Story Telling and Rhymes at Tiny Tulips.Followed by 1 st in Rhymes,3 rd in Sloka and Consolation (for the first time)in coloring at Skyz is d Limit !!

Not to forget the Best Student Award for LKG at school.It was a proud moment...As I always say, the class is filled with sooper smart kids..and to surpass them is indeed an achievement..:-)
Then came the sports day,history repeated with a 3 rd place in running...The drill by the UKG kids was so very colorful with the tiny umbrellas.

The Science Project at Main school was nerve cracking !! Yes, she was one among the 5 selected for the project.We had to make a thermocal model depictg Chinese culture.Make her memorize a few lines explaining the project(Thank God,the teacher gave the lines),download a chinese song for 1 minute and teach her to dance..and the only one from her class...while other classes had either group or couple dances...

To add more spice, we Moms were preparing for our group dance performance at Parents/Grandparents Day !!! We won the 2 nd prize...but we shd have been 1 st is wat we all think and ofcourse a few well wishers and teachers felt the same...

End of the day,amidst all the high pressure and hectic schedule, I knew I was quietly enjoying everybit of it !! Coz I was doing what I like the most ..:-)

Vj's 1.5 day weekend presence nurtured our family bonding time...we celebrated the Valentines Day over the weekend with 3 back to back movies and a diamond ring..;-)))

A straight line in an ECG....

I got this sms from a friend - The ups and downs in Life are very important to keep us going.Bcoz a straight line even in an ECG mean "we are not Alive" !!

So very true...and I have been going thru this ups and downs Im so happy about something and the next day is a total disaster.But yes, not to worry...these are recoverable disasters..Jus that it needs a little introspection and maturity to handle the situations !!

The Downs !!

The ones Im gonna crib about-the 14 months Vanavas that we have been going thru...Yes, initially Vj and myself were prepared for the 1 year long distance relationship when he moved to Mumbai.His monthly "official" visits, our twice a year visit during summers n Navratri,just kept the distance minimal.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder?? Now I can vouch- Yes it does !! :-)
The sad truth is no one really bothers to acknowledge the difficulties of keeping up a long distance relationship.Its a challenge and we sailed thru somehow... so far....
What after a big question mark now.While Vj is tryg his level best to transport himself physically here,things arent going the way we want to be...

How long??? How much more time??? When?? Well, Nobody has the key to these questions...and makes me feel like a babe in the woods..:-( For Vj, its being over a barrel !!

The second fact of anguish- My health.Now, thats purely on my negligence..:-( You call it sup.spinatus tendinitis...or in simple terms-the thinning of ur tendon,its absolutely something that I have acquired coz of my ignorance.They call it Gym injury...I did...over did...and the end result,terrible pain on the shoulders coupled with cervical spondylisis.Definitely not an age to be talking about...But yes, i have come to terms with my problem and doing my best to save my shoulders and ofcourse the rest of my body...
It all started with a severe pain on the neck n shoulder one fine day after our last back to back events.Though the pain has been there ...don know ever since when!
Vj flew down...X rays,MRI ...finally trying to protect ..preserve...with physio...loads of lifestyle changes with tons of dos n donts !!!
thank God !! Surgery isnt reqd...a few more days of negligence wud have endedup there... is wat the doc said..:-(

Okie,my last n final distress- Shreya..I know most of u giving me a dismal look...but the super smart kid-as others call her,is becoming an uncontrollable brat at home...Probably she is going thru a lotta turbulence too...missing her dad !! But, its become a point where Im forced to deal with my guilty pangs almost every day....after I blow the lid off !!!

Now that, I have already spent a lotta time on laptop penning this,gonna take a break and be back with refreshing UPs !!!

Been long since I wrote anything personally here...Lotta things eat my time..Shreya,her school projects,competitions...Funsquared events...our flat work...amma's health.Amidst all these,I feel that the small pleasures of life are lost...
As Vj rightly says, I bring home trouble..tension...and nerve cracking situations..:-((
Wish I cud jus idle away my time without having to squeeze my brain about anything...personally or work.
Our next event is the best eg.its our dream come true do smething related to Nature..contests for kids has always been in our mind..and yes, to be frank I have been pushing this concept everytime we wanna do smethg new.
This time, its all set...sponsors,venue,stalls...but registrations are definitely not pouring in the way I had visualised..:-((
To get keep the fingers crossed... has been the scenario everytime.But stil, the satisfaction that we derive after every event,keeps pushing us.
And yes, we should concentrate more on Birthday parties..which has been our forte...and ofcourse little less nerve cracking...
Im so happy that an article about us has come in express is jus the start..:-)
