Heart warming moments

We went to the shops yesterday and as we roamed the shoes aisle, Divya excitedly pointed at the pairs of shoes she wanted and I bought them. They were shiny and I have a girl, so that's the license I need to buy shiny pretty shoes (and clothes, and hairclips and ... *Thank God Raghu doesn't read my blog* ). So we came home with two pairs of shoes and I put one on Divya and then went my way unpacking our shopping. She wanted to try the other pair on and whom did she turn to? Her brother. He patiently put the shoes on her feet one by one while she cooperated and then pulled her up to her shiny shod feet and took her for a walk so that she could show off her pretty little shoes.

Lucky girl to have a big brother like him..

I also remember dreading shoe shopping with Ashwin in Singapore, he would put his feet up to try on shoes but not let me take them off. If you intend to leave the shop without purchasing at least one pair, God save you!

A new unit of size

Amma, you want to know how big i'm are?


* Runs his hands super slowly all the way up from his feet to his head and back to his other feet.*

Took a long time right, I'm soooo big.

Feel the feel

Ashwin was reading this book to his sister and this is how the conversation went:

See Divya, Yellow. Yellow Divya! Yellow!! Feel divya, feel. *Taking her hand to the shiny bits* feel. yeah, feel feeeeeeel.

And all the while she obliged him and wore an important and satisfied look on her face.

Teaching her to spell

As Ashwin and Divya shared afternoon tea yesterday, Ashwin pointed at this bottle of honey and tried to teach Divya spelling:

H.. o.. u.. e.. y.. a.. u.. s.. t.. r.. a.. l.. i.. a.. u. Honey

Now she knows who to blame when she gets a less than perfect score at a spelling test..

Blog revival

Is my resolution of the day.
