It was a weekend of a lot of new stuff!
On Saturday RD has some training and had to go to office at 6.30…now the thing being that, if the guy had to go to office I had to get up and have a bath because R wont let me have a bath when both of us are alone
then a brainwave stuck me! ..so as soon as he finished his bath, I thought, Chalo let me have a bath, but not wash my face and not brush my teeth, so I can just change and go back to sleep for a while.
As soon as I take the first mug ful of water with my still-trying-to-sleep hands, RD knocks…RM RM how long..
I mean boss, you go to work on a Saturday, and dont even let me have a half bath…
RM: Kya hua?
RD: I have to leave and R is awake crying for you
RM: wait wait I am coming in 2 minutes
and I quickly pour the bucket below my neck and wear my clothes and come out…now please note that the teeth havent been brushed and the face hasnt been washed…so that I can go back to sleep
I cant hear R crying..I wonder if RD just imagined it ..when I see him snuggling next to her in the bed with his legs dangling out because they are shoe clad and the daughter wrapped around him tightly 🙂
I tell him to leave and then the brat is up…I mean on a weekend at 6.15..Gah! big Gah! I pretend to sleep but then she decides to explore the contours of my face and my ears and my hair and what not..
R go to sleep rey!
R: Amma, sun up ho jayega, daycare jana hai..get up get up
she tries hard to make me get up, but I am still struggling to pretend to sleep..when she says ‘Amma, potty aayi, zor se aayi’
Thats it! I spring out of the bed faster than PT Usha…quickly pull down her pant when she says ‘Main toh mazak kar rahi thi (I was joking)
Now dear blog, isnt she like the biggest brat EVER!!
anyways, so we are now up rising and shining..and do our morning stuff and I drop her to daycare..she just walks in without a backward glance..and I am like yaa whatever!!!!
Anyways then I go home, clean up the house, etc etc etc
Then I decide to go and take out some time to myself…you know where you dont actually CLEAN the house but you do something for yourself
Since I had a full grown moochi and beard, I thought let me go to the parlour and get rid of that…
So off I went there, and people now is where I clap to myself and applaude myself!
I managed to do a clean up on my face (for the first time in 6 years and second time in my life, I did one before the marriage!) , and a pedicure..the last time I did it, I was sure I wont do it again, but I decided to give it a shot and gosh, my feet look clean *rolls eyes*
I spent more than INR 500 on myself and I am so proud of myself 🙂
Getting better and celebrating myself eh :):)
other random stuff over the weekend
– I am getting drying the clothes and the bell rings..and lady and her hubby are standing out and they say, is there a little girl in this house..and I am like, well I do have a daughter…and they give me a dabba full of prasad with poori, chole and sheera..its asthami and the north indians celebrate by praying to little girls and there the brat got yummy food…I was so touched by the fact that they actually sought out R and came to give her the prasad on the way to work…I promised to take R with me in the evening and we went to their house for darshan in the evening and had another round of the yummy chole 🙂
– As promised to R, instead of the star cake, we had star birthday ka poochkas….just as we started eating we saw a boy may be about 7 to 8 years old screaming Mummy Mummy…we didnt react for a while and then RD asked where is your mummy..one man said, he is with the two ladies gossiping..but they didnt seem to care..and then RD got agitated…he was like do you have anyone with you..one other old lady also asked him…he just kept crying and the two ladies just nonchalantly pointed towards a kirana shop saying, udhar hai...the boy went towards the shop and his mom just stared at him and didnt react..
I am no one to judge…absolutely no one..but I would never like leaving a child unattended on a busy road..R seems really disturbed with the whole thing and ate only 3 poochkas instead of her 12!!!!
– On Sunday, R was called for the navami pooja by another couple…I took her there after my navami pooja (made gud payasam, lemon rice and curd rice for bhog!) and then she saw two other girls older to her and said amma aap jao, I will come down…I was reluctant for a minute and then I thought, why not..I asked the couple who had invited her..they were cool about it
So, there people, R SPENT THE FIRST TIME OF HER LIFE ALONE IN SOMEONE’S HOUSE I should be marking this day in red letter 🙂
– Friday night, R and I were surfing channels while RD had gone for a hair cut..we saw some soup someone was making out of masoor dal..Amma, I took this dal for the activity na said the brat…I think she should definitely become a chef 🙂
anyways so on Sunday night, I made the masoor dal soup..errr…lets not dwell on it too much 🙂
R: Amma, mereko aacha nahi laga (talk about being blunt!)
RD: errr…it tastes like dal na..what did you do to it (gulping down as soon as possible to avoid the taste in his mouth)
RM: well, I made it, I eat it!!!
That was my weekend, hope yours was good as well
