Sage Charan

So (finally) Anna's annual day function was yesterday! Amma, appa, paati and your athai went to see him dressed up as a rishi and dance on the stage for a few mins, along with three other rishis. Though he saw paati, neither amma nor any one else could make out which of the four rishis was Charan!!!

There was a pre-KG girl who sang "kurai ondrum illai" beautifully and reminded the family of you. Upon hearing about the events, even I could think of only how you would have rocked such events.

Yesterday was also your star birthday. Mini paapa commomerated it by turning over on to her tummy. She did that twice so we could tick it off the list and has gone back to lying on her back! Lazy baby!

In other news, Srimathi chithi has come to Madras from US, with baby R. Amma and Charan will be going to see them at mammu paati's house over the weekend.

I dreamt of you last night.

You were standing a distance away from me and playing. I kept calling out to you to stop and come back, let's go home, amma'll be worried. But you just smiled your trademark smile and kept playing on the swings. Swinging 'sky high'.

And then I woke up.

No sense of smell :)

Hi Shraddha,

Your mom complains that she could not smell a thing!

You know what... I held a camphor under her nose...

Hey someone out there, pl. complete this

PS: I met Aruna Sayeeram @ Satyabama University today - occasion - COL honoring Indira Nooyi, Pepsico CEO with Golden Lotus Award 2009.

I told her, "Mam, my son is very fond of your song 'vishamakkaraa Kanna..'", Is that so? she said. "Tell him, I didn't mean him... ha..ha..ha.." she concluded.

Dear Shraddha

Dear Shraddha,

Today is P's birthday. We got him a cake and he will cut it in the evening. Mini paapa saw it and wanted to eat the whole box! She is a lot like you - looks at us whenever we munch, just like you! Tomorrow P is having a party for his friends. I hope it will be a nice sunny day like today. Otherwise I shall have to manage a bunch of children in one small room for almost 3 hours!!

Charan anna's school day is finally going to be held next thursday. He is going to be dancing, wearing a rishi costume! Amma, appa, paati, athais, chithappa are all going to see him on stage. Don't know yet about thatha and Janani akka. Anna is quite nervous but excited about this. You know the funny thing? When I was at JV, the first time I went on stage as a part of the annual day programmes, I also was a "rishi"! 

Mini paapa is lying down next to me as I type this and is singing! She puts her index finger in her mouth and goes "aaaaaa, aaa-aaa" and can keep at it for up to 15 minutes at a stretch. She also keeps her feet flat on the floor and raises her bum. And does a wiggle! But she hasn't rolled over on her tummy yet - nor does she feel inclined to! Did you crawl? I remember seeing photos of you flat on your tummy!
