My Parent Tales with my eldest daughter :)

When your preschooler teaches you about compassion!

Manasi and Aadya might want anything and everything under the sun .. otherwise.. but when they are sleepy, they just want the warmth of Amma touching them .. just my hand would do!

It is such moments when they put their hands around my neck .. that I call … 😍 Complete Bliss! ❀️❀️❀️

So I have a rowdy of a younger daughter Manasi πŸ˜…

She decided she wanted to read a book ..

She was calling okay yelling Aaddhaaa aaddhaaa addhaaa .. who by the way was sitting right next to her ..

Aadya was seeking my attention..

I smile 😊 and tell A .. see Manasi is calling out to you .. just like you are calling me ..

She smiled .. and turned towards Miss Manasi.

So Manasi apparently also decided for her Akka that Akka MUST read THE book she pre-decided.

She shoved the book to Aadya and told her to read..

I smiled at my elder daughter’s inconvenience because just the scene where miss A puts me in .. like every hour 😝

Now Aadya let herself an uncomfortable smile and sat down to read ..

I didn’t know how to react to this now .. for a moment ..

Aadya wanted to do something with me .. but sat down with her sister to satisfy her ..

I really felt guilty that she stopped doing something what she wanted maybe because I prodded her to listen to what her sister wants to say to her ..

So I told her ..

it’s okay if you don’t want to read .. you can tell Siva that you wouldn’t be able to read along with her ..

Now my elder daughter surprised me .. overwhelmed me ..

Amma it’s okay .. Siva will feel bad right .. So I will sit down and read πŸ€—

😍

Wow! Aadya always has lessons for me on compassion, empathy and love! She just always does!

I always feel blessed to have such a love-filled soul enter my life! ❀️

P.S. My little stubborn toddler younger daughter refused to allow A to pick any other book! And poor thing just stuck to it for good 15 minutes .. because apparently

It’s okay Amma! Siva will feel bad!

Now after all this .. I just have to share .. Manasi adores Aadya like nobody!

Right from the womb where she used to always respond to Aadya by kicking .. to start looking up to the little big sister, following her 😎 to forgetting her own woes if Aadya is crying and pacifying her😍😘!

I so so love their bond – the sibling bond! πŸ’•

This is that book that Miss Siva Manasi picked up for Miss Sree Aadya 😁

Also we are finally setting up Montessori space at my moms place 😎

BFF

We generally drift off to sleep with me patting the little one to sleep by putting her on me and Aadya sleeping next to me. It is generally a story and when Aadya decides to sleep, she asks for Krishna’s story πŸ™‚ Well who doesn’t love little Krishna story or rather stories πŸ˜€

So we were going through these story telling sessions and the little one doesn’t seem to sleep .. Fidgeting, whining, scolding πŸ˜‰ (Both my girls dont cry πŸ˜€ everytime .. They mostly make these peculiar cries when they are discomfortable .. And they sound exactly like giving me a good scold :P)

I continue patting her .. and not stopping my story for I dint want to stop aiding Aadya from falling sleep ..

Suddenly .. Aadya tells me “Amma Chelli padukundipoyinattundi” (Amma I think lil sister slept off) and I checked, YES she lept πŸ™‚ Phew! That relief! πŸ™‚

Then I suddenly realized .. Aadya is on my team to put her little sister to sleep. πŸ˜€ Oh well!! She was always trying to pat the little one to sleep or join me in making the soothing sounds or sometimes even with the lullabies as well ..

It was only when she said the above words I realized that she truly wanted to help and was not playing πŸ˜€ She was damn serious just like about the task on hand of putting her sister to sleep .. just like Mom πŸ˜€

When Aadya was even smaller, I never had help putting her to sleep .. and sleep was the only complaint I had about A ..

But now .. I have help πŸ™‚ I have a friend who was always ready to reach out to me :)It’s then I realized I had a new BFF in town 8) who would always be with me .. πŸ™‚

Though it amazed me how Miss A grew up so fast .. it doesn’t surprise me .. as she always had been a thoughtful, considerate human πŸ™‚

I love her soul to pieces .. and forever grateful to have her!!

ο»ΏColours, popsicle sticks and a toddler

My little daughter refuses to acknowledge colours πŸ™‚
Of course its a toddler we are talking about ..

How to familiarize when pointing to the routine objects dint help and I couldn’t do those so very interesting but painstaking crafts for her ?!
I got hold of crayons and found some popsicle sticks lying around.

I thought why not a simple matching activity for her? It wouldn’t be too overwhelming and its very easy peasy for me as well πŸ˜€
So I just had fun colouring them when she went for a stroll and when she was back she was excited πŸ™‚
And I could finally make her interested in colours ..

So I think keep it simple mommy ! does the trick πŸ™‚
There you go my little craft .. And I always feel if I could do something, ANYBODY can do it πŸ™‚

I feel water colors would do more justice for even colouring but I did utilise what was available πŸ˜› and definitely little A did not notice πŸ˜€

I have some more activities in mind with these popsicle sticks .. Will post them when I get to do them..in action πŸ™‚

A little thief

I go for a bath leaving little Aadya in the care of my maid ..

I return after a good 15 minutes and what do I see???

 

Aadya has nibbled a good half the box of sweets :O …

Very very busy πŸ˜€ she was …

and that heart melting smile … πŸ™‚ that satisfied look ..
Oh babies ! such adorable creatures .. <3

Now I understand how little Krishna managed to nick butter all the time and get away πŸ™‚

Compassion

Everyday aadya has been biting me .. And i writhe in pain ..
Today she was extra cautious .. Looking into my face if I was in pain .. And trying to feed
TRYING to be gentle ..

Must be tough .. For moms milk was the most tastiest for her and resisting that for mommas pain .. Takes a lot .. Of compassion and love for Amma <3
Oh so much to learn from my darling

Yayyy for parts of the body

I see a lot of posts on fb saying we taught our kids this, that and on and on ..
I wasn’t really interested in joining them.

Aadya at 15 months could say ram ram, govinda and Om namah sivayah!
Om namah sivaya is tough .. She heard me twice in kasi and started saying OM amachiya …..

I was happy!! We dint teach her but just chanting as she loved hearing to mantras πŸ™‚
So I dint really care about the normal jargon πŸ™‚
But aadya had a severe cold and suddenly started pointing out mukka to her blocked nose for asking to clear it.
I dutifully obliged for 3-4 days and then realized she learnt on a body part on her own out of sheer necessity;)
Oh she communicates very well and tries to talk like us πŸ™‚

But when I finally realized she was interested in these body parts we jumped into the jargon
I just showed her the body parts her and mine and told her what they were .. She smiled πŸ™‚
We did this some 4 times in a few days and bang
Today she just showed me my parts as I was saying the various parts names …

Wow!! Amazing brains these kids have these days!
I know its easy for them to learn the first 6 years

I also heard their mind is a plain paper and hence easy for them.

Well this just increased my responsibility in moulding Aadya! πŸ™‚
