Rhea’s new picture pose.
She is now bored.
All smiles. From left to right…. Nutty, Suman, Charu and no-idea.
Charu, Rhea and Suman
Something really really funny happened.
All formal and “quiet”
Suman and kids
Dance moves by Rhea – Robot like.
Totally Robot like.
Charu’s snake dance
Bored? Happy? Can’t tell.
Rhea at her Christmas recital. She had a sore throat so a lot of highs in the song were removed by her teacher. We offered her to back out and I am glad to say that she refused to do so.
My brother is visiting from the States and here is what the kids were upto…
My daughter, Rhea recently started vocal lessons and gave her first recital a month ago. She finally gave me her permission to post the video here.
I thought the piano was too loud. Other than that, I loved the fact that she was able to stand in front of people and sing.
These days hosting a kids birthday party is soooo darn easy.
Book a trampoline place : check
Get a birthday cake : check
Invite kid’s friends : check
Order a pizza, fruit and chips : check, check and check
Pay : cheque (sorry couldn’t resist ;) )
Drink the insipid coffee at the trampoline place : check
First some stretching
Then some jumping
Then some cake
Then cut the cake
Play a truth/dare game
Then watch the truth/dare game escalate to a cake fight.
But in the end it is quite endearing to watch the children have a great time!
Happy birthday kiddo!
“Dear mom and dad you know I never go to sleep but why can’t I? How about I change my bed time to 9:30pm to 7:30am? Then I will have enough rest and have more time to rest. What do you say? From you wonderful lovely daughter rhea please.”
The funny thing is that she has managed to push her bedtime steadily to 10pm!
My daughter got a book from the library titled “I Survived The Attacks Of11SEP2001”. Why she picked this book, I have no idea but I think the covermight have had something to do with it. Tall buildings on fire; People running; bold letters of the book title in red.
She read the first chapter and suddenly, she was full of questions. Why it happened? How it happened?
And this question really threw me off : “Did they arrest the pilots?”
In the mind of a child, there is no concept of mass murder, no concept of someone deliberately harming another human being for no reason. In the mind of a child, your actions may lead to damage (even that is alittle hard for a child to comprehend “why would they hit the buildings?”) but everyone has to face the music after the act.In the mind of a child everyone is pure. It is us adults who ruin that feeling and ruin the mindset that is desperately needed.
But then again, she needs to see what the world really is….sometimes a beautiful place and sometimes a heartless monster. I can only hope her thoughts will remain on track that they are on right now for as long a possible.
