My big boy!! You are now Five!!

Time flew by in a blink,

Was it yesterday?? I still think…

My big boy, You are now five!!

Those tummy kicks,

Your naughty winks

My big boy, you are now five!!

You are growing quick

Selfies we click

My big boy, you are now five!!

Dheer, time flies so fast!!! It still feels like yesterday that I had severe contractions that night while watching a TV show, when you decided to pop out, to today,when you have grown up to be Mommy’s big boy making your choices to what you want to wear!!

I am grateful to the nature for having blessed me with a wonderful son like you, you made me rediscover myself, change myself from the days I refused to grow up to today when I am an obsessive mother, I just can’t remember a bit of what I was before you.

This year had been a fabulous journey for us and capturing some of our memories :

  • This year you have debuted watching television and also you have fallen in love with Octonauts, Mickey Mouse, Pirates and the list goes on.
  • You have mastered the art of selfies. We are up and ready for a selfie any day, perhaps every day.
  • You have been generous enough to choose your dad over me to dress you up for school.
  • You have been a stickler with the tastes. You  know how exactly a dish should appeal and taste.
  • You started helping mommy in daily chores.
  • You have graduated from the basic rides in a fun zone to the 3D car races and bike races.
  • You have learnt that you should not disturb mommy when she is down with migraine, and so you ensure to switch off lights and move away.
  • You have been kind enough to give me a break from reading innumerable number of stories to two per day before we sleep.
  • At school, you have been an obedient student and your grades have been proving the same.
  • This year, you know to identify A-Z and to write 1-10, you also have picked up amazing English vocabulary and you enjoy speaking in English.

and I can write a zillion more….

So, as you turn five, it is the time for us to express the gratitude to having got this wonderful life. As I always teach you, live simple, spread love, be kind and have gratitude for every little thing we have in our lives.

Have a healthy, happy life. God bless you!!

Me and my son Dheer have recently fallen in love with this song from a book by Ryan Huston. Here it is  for you all

“Love you forever

Like you for always

As long as I am living

My baby you will be!!”

My Superhero

Ever since I saw this Telugu movie Nannaku prematho, the title song has been haunting me. It is a very lovable song with and in-depth meaning of love or perhaps an emotion between a father and a son.

As I heard this song innumerable number of times, it reminded me of the marvelous relationship I shared with my dad. My father was, is and will be my superhero. He is no more with us physically but I continue to feel his aura all around me.

Today, this song fondly made me recollect those sweet memories of :

  1. My first drive on the bus, when he patiently taught me to take a ticket, guided me the bus stop and showed me the way to reach home.
  2. My first experience of the two wheeler, when he sat behind me, holding my hands  and boosting my confidence to drive on a  heavy traffic road.
  3. His appreciations to the first dish I made, though it must have been the most awful one he ever had.
  4. His encouragement when I sobbed myself to sleep after scoring good but expected to have scored more.
  5. His confidence in me when I was late from work, when I handled tasks independently, when I was moved to a different city for work.
  6. His “never say no” attitude to accompany me to all the movies which I watched and he preferred to sleep (read snore) in the theater after a tiring day at work.
  7. The secret mission between us to grab some extra pocket money without my mother’s consent to buy a new nail polish that month.
  8. The cheat morning walks, when we relaxed under a tree half way through and boasted to the family that we did a sprint session.
  9. The way I never checked the petrol in my vehicle or cash in my purse because he always ensured that I was equipped and if not, he was my 24/7 helpline number.
  10. Above all, the way I was treated like the princess of the family, with the “your wish is my command” environment at home.

And if I continue writing, I would keep writing forever !!! I owe all the traits I carry today to the way he raised me. He was a person with an infectious smile on his face and unconditional love in his demeanor. His simplicity, humility, sense of humor are some dispositions that deserve a mention.
