Around the house

The house is buzzing with words now that Diyu is also talking nineteen to a dozen… I got up today and realized that I may just not remember the most precious things they’re saying and making our lives full. So here’s for my glossary in the future

1) Pannu to me ” Mamma you know love never ends…. its only begins.”

Heart melted, tear in the eye emerged and a tight hug followed. My gentle soul will steal hearts for sure

2) Diyu with her constant ” laggaaa…”

Knowing her is knowing that she is doing things beyond her age and with that along side having an elder brother, ensures that is no dearth of adventure along with the number of times she hurts herself yet relentlessly keeps going. Perseverance has another name – Diyu!

3) ” 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10…. There 10 mins over! “

This was to our advantage sometime back when we wanted to get things done, but many times its started to backfire and we had to disclose real time to Panu. Hmmm… some things just don’t last to our advantage ever!

4) “Asthakala pani ma” means love mamma

“Yes, my pushtakala pani ma” is the only suitable and most understood response. 

5) Among all of this, there is the not so occasional….. “Bad girl and  Bad Boy” also 

6) “Please…..?” If we ever forgot to add the golden words, constable Kabir is there to remind us and we realise that maybe it did a too good a job! 



Happily Random

As I sit here in my freshly (actually just moved around furniture) done up sitting room, with pictures on the wall of us all…. rearranged furniture to make it look more cosy and an empty house, as the boys have gone out for a walk, I feel at peace. Maybe it’s the silence, maybe its the feeling of change or maybe its just! Its nice…. I went to the mandir room and said “hi” to GOD. Told him/them to keep us healthy and get us a good maid! I can’t believe it’s also crept into my prayers! 🙂 I walked around the empty house, ran into the verandah twice to see them leave (!) and walked around a little more not knowing what to achieve… but just walked. I miss just wandering around in the house without a purpose or an objective. Should do it more often, maybe get some more alone time where I am not worrying, or thinking what next, or just thinking random things. Yes, maybe it will come in the very near future when this maid thing is sorted out and we can focus on all the other things I planned or am wanting to do in this off time.

 I had an awesome moment today when we got up – Panu looked straight into my eyes and told me in his own style, i love you mama. He then rolled around in the bed and hugged me, gave me one huge grin and then again looked straight into my eye. I even got a blop kissi early in the morning, before even getting out of bed – These are the things that keep me going amidst the confusion of days!

 I don’t know whether its coincidence or not, but whenever Hanu travels, I land up doing stuff to the house. Last time when he was returning from his trip, mummy and I bought curtains and got them altered and arranged, all in time of his arrival. And if I go to see it, it’s always the last day of returning when I start doing this. It’s my crazy way of just welcoming his back and telling him that I missed him – furnishing and decorating! Anyways, coming back to this time which was a very very short trip – 1 night; we managed to rearrange the entire living area, put up the wonderful (it’s a beginning to   of frames and personalizing the entire space!) frames, etc etc… all in time AGAIN!! He loved it but before him I also got approval from the little prince – He enjoyed himself because we have put down a small space for him – his very own gadda, the bookshelf is more accessible for him now and he has more curves to play chuk chuk gaadi! I love redecorating…

 I sadly can’t get myself to not call the camel Senthil – its the lip thing! Oh GOD why why….

 Had a lovely outing with Ma yesterday. She amazes me with her energy and I always say touch wood!  Had a club sandwich after ages.. not as great as the ones I would have from Mocambo but it came close enough. Of course the damn umbrella had everything beeping and us being eyed as terrorists! The poor umbrella was scrutinized

 …………and well the silence has ended. They all are back and thank GOD for that! I go back to playing car car… wow!

His library 🙂
