Hopeful 2011!

I had planned out grand posts in my mind to resurrect my idle blog into an active one at the start of the new year.  Well, grand posts fade in my head when I sit down to write late at night.  "Tomorrow" is the key word that springs to mind.  So finally I am giving up on the grand post and just writing something I over heard and brought a smile to my face when KB and KG were talking while they were watching TV.

KG (who is 3.5 now) shouting to me from the living room - Mamma, today I won't "veral chappi" (suck on my thumb) because I don't want bacteria to get into my stomach. 

KB (who is 5 yrs 4m now) telling her - No!

KG - Yes!

KB - NO, that's not the problem.  If you veral chappi then your teeth will stick out like a Saber tooth tiger!

That's the funny part when these kids talk to each other.  He doesn't try to dumb it down for KG because she is younger than him.  If he thinks she will look like a Saber tooth tiger, he assumes she knows what such a tiger looks like and says it matter of factly.

Update to the mole situation from my last post.  We consulted three dermatologists and all three of them feel it is atypical and it is better we have it removed.  It has to be under general anesthesia because of the way KB is - very aware of his surroundings, anxious, sensitive.  They said it is better to do it that way than attempt a local shot. It is probably going to take an hour - I am dreading how I am going to convince him to wake up and come with us to the hospital at 6.30 a.m. in the morning.  But if the insurance approval comes through, it should get done end of the month.  My stomach goes in knots when I think about it but I am trying to calm myself down about it and not think about it until the day of the procedure.

KB is enjoying his Kindergarten and KG is loving her preschool.  It is such a joy and a heart break to see them at school.  Esp for KB - being amongst the younger ones and being a gentle one, as a parent I am learning to stand back and let him sort things out to the extent I can.  His growing pains are mine too.  I joke to my friend that I am also now studying Kindergarten!

Happy 2011, Noon! Crossing fingers that the procedure goes fine. Hugs to KB.

KG is 3.5 and in school?!! Whoa!

the conversation between them reminds me how different it is here. Ashu talks to Antu as if she were still a new born and even tells me sometimes that I cant talk in a certain way to Antu because she wont understand!! :)

Boo - Thanks. I loved reading all your happy vacation posts.
Yes 3.5 and Hari's KG teacher shocked me when she asked me if my daughter is now ready for Kindergarten - I was thinking - goodness this little baby is going to be in KG in one more year?!
Well, sometimes KB also says - mamma, but KG won't understand, she is a baby!

bits - Thanks bits! :)

MNI - Thanks. Yes, this Monday morn. Simple procedure. It is the genl anesthesia that scares me...I just hate medicating children...bad enough we give steroids when he has Bronchitis...

Ro - Happy new year to you too! What is the photographer up to?

CA - Thanks!

Neera - Good to hear from you. PLEASE post about your life there soon! Been too long!
