This picture brings mixed emotions in me:
1. Meh: Apart from being a football fanatic's wife, I am going to be a football fanatic's mom as well 😐
2. Happy: After a while I can send both dad and son for football match and enjoy my me time 😁
At the Metro train station:
Lady at the counter: Ma'am, you might have to take a ticket for your son as well.
Me : Looks at him head to toe and pays for his ticket as well.
Sometimes it is so difficult to agree to the fact that they are growing up so fast. This boy was 51 cms when he was born, still sleeps on my tummy like a baby, runs to me for a hug when he's upset because of which I have forgotten that he has grown to a good 99 cms now.
No no I'm not getting emotional now...damn!
Agu runs ahead and grabs the 2 BIG toys which he sees first at the store
Acts like he cannot live without them and all your efforts to distract him and put them back fail
You buy them just because you are not really in a mood for an emotional outburst
Walk out of the toystore with two toys which you are sure he wouldn't even care about, the moment you step back in the house.
Agu's new obsession is sandwich, that too cheese sandwich. So my main hobby these days is to try different combinations along with cheese and get some veggies down his throat. This sandwich has always worked with him so here's a quick and easy sandwich recipe for you all to try ☺
What you need:
Wheat bread: 2 slices
Spinach leaves: 15 leaves chopped
Salt: a pinch (remember cheese is salty so we can even skip salt here)
Cheese spread: as required
How to make:
Saute spinach leaves in a bit of butter until it's cooked
In a microwave friendly bowl add one egg, milk, spinach leaves, salt.
Microwave for 30 seconds then wait for 10 seconds and again for 30 seconds (Egg would be cooked and hard by then).
Spread cheese over bread, place the spinach loaded egg on it and toast it or pop it in a sandwich maker
Tadaa!! Healthy evening snack in 10 minutes 😁
Husband: I think we should get a toy car with remote control.
Me (looks at Agu who was playing with spoon and plastic container): hmmm 😮
Husband (with the same twinkle in his eye that he has when he wants to buy new PlayStation CDs): We should get a big one, a really good one.
Me: Agu hardly plays with toys and don't you remember he broke his small remote control car the next day he got it??
Husband: It's not for Agu, it's for me 😁
Me: *sigh* 😨😨
That feeling when you doubt who actually your kid is??!! ☺☺
