We went back for the Sing along with Jeeva and Krishna Iyer. Awesome! Pattu and A had V as well for company and the three of them were super excited singing and jumping along! LB was just two rows away from us … I can’t tell whether the kids or the parents enjoyed it more.
And this Aarpattam continued all the way back home as well!
Highlight of the evening was V telling the girls, ‘ayyo CD odanju pochu’ (The CD got stuck) when the girls were stuck on a song trying to recall the next line. LOL!
Last weekend plans (Nalandaway, Dakshinachitra, etc)got washed out in the rains! While I was disappointed, Pattu had her share of fun.
We went ahead with out Thumb Thumb project and I managed to save the rest of the house from the multi coloured Thumbs
Of late we’ve been playing Jungle and Farm animals. Pattu would come on all fours and say, ‘I’m a cub’ and I have to go on all fours and say, “I’m mama Tigress’ and we’ll go hunt or cuddle up.
Once she was the calf and me the cow and since the calf was hungry, we went grazing. Later at the dinner table:
Amma: Come have dinner Pattu
Pattu: No amma..don’t want
Amma: You’ll feel hungry if you don’t eat now
Pattu: But I am not hungry amma… I ate grass with you na amma, Hunger gone. *Wide smile*
Wondering if youtobe would have any of the nalandaway programs…
This whole week I’ve seen parents scurrying around for ideas and themes for Children’s’ Day. I was in the middle of a meeting yesterday when my colleague pinged me, ‘very urgent – call asap’. I thought it was work related, but soon figured that she wanted ideas for C Day! I used to think its easy, but I find myself drained of ideas since they are either too easy, too difficult, too common, too offbeat, done this last year, etc etc.
Luckily, Pattu’s school has just invited us for the celebrations – I don’t have to dress her up as a Turnip yet!
We planned to attend the C Fest at Dakshinachitra but looks like we’ll have to skip it and some other interesting things as well that’s happening all over the city since we have to be in School. However, we are planning to catch up on Nalandaway at Kalakshetra in the evening. This should make up for what we missed lasst week due to the rains. This would be Pattu’s first live performance experience. Hope she enjoys it.
We caught Trapezium last week and Pattu has been doing Gymnastics ever since.
