The Return of R…..

……was not marked with any pomp 🙂 their train was delayed and by the time they reached home, it was 9 in the night on Saturday…

I was sitting on the computer and FIL opened the door…I went towards the door, and R peeped in to check if I was behind her thatha..and then her face broke into a HUGE grin threatening to split her face into two and then she ran towards me and hugged me tight…for all those who think, I got all emotional, well I didnt *Rolls eyes* I started removing her shoes 🙂

She looked and me and kept touching my face…she touched my nose first, then my eyes beneath the soda bottle glasses, my lips and my ears and then tugged my hair..‘Amma’ she said with a huge smile and thats when I got a bit sentimental 🙂

Why didnt you come to the temple? asked MIL ‘everyone’s mothers were there..RD had asked you to get the car and come na’ Errr..and the spell broke and I didnt reply anything..I was just in my own sweet world with R hugging me all the time for about 5 minutes..

Reunion complete, she started talking dime a dozen on how she had 2 ice creams and 1 packet of lays (Food is our favorite topic in the family)

Some nuggets

Amma, Lays manje chips..potato chips okay?

Yaa right?

Amma, she claims proudly, I can now climb upar neeche on the train ka berths kudhse…Errr..who taught you R, I ask

Koi nahi, I learnt it myself she responds 🙂

RD tells me, she tells him ‘Aapne chappal dala hai, thathi ne dala hai, toh main kyun daalu? (Are you wearing chappals, is thathi wearing chappals then why should I?) when he asked her to wear chappals while boarding the train 🙂

She was the darling of the group since she was the youngest..she managed to charm her way through the group eating enough chocolates which she hasnt eaten in her life time (Errrr..which is not even four years, but still!)

She climbed the malai without issues except the last part which the group leader carried her..she had her baths with different aunties, combed her hair with different aunties and called everyone mamas and mamis, got pampered by the other kids older to her and in short enjoyed her trip to the fullest..

RM: Did you miss me R?

R: Nahi

RM: no?

R: no Amma, main toh bahut enjoy kiya..did you miss me?

RM: !!!!

She told RD ‘Mereko baar baar amma se talk nahi karna, main Bombay jake talk karungi’ (Dont ask me to talk to Amma, I will talk to her when I go to Bombay)

After the Malai climb when she came down, she went to her thathi and said in her ear ‘Thathi, abhi main temples jake bore ho gayi hoon, aur  kitna temples hai? (Thathi I am bored of going to temples, how many more do we have to do now?) 🙂

As per the overall report, she was pretty much a darling..as per the father, she ‘knew’ when to throw a tantrum and troubled him only when it was not a major problem *Rolls eyes*

As per her thathi she didnt trouble at all..but I dont take my MIL’s views at face value..R can go and jump on an expensive sofa and break the costliest of crystals and lose a 10 kg gold chain (what its possible for her okay?) and yet MIL will manage to claim that her grand daughter is innocent!

People are congratulating me? and I wonder why,…I didnt even go..but apparently, not many mothers will send their not-even-four kids alone it seems..Gah! are they joking???

It was her star birthday on the day she climbed the malai and apparently the entire group of 35 people sang happy birthday to her and she was so so happy and elated…RD says her expression was worth a million dollars 🙂

Yesterday, as I started the struggle of combing her hair she tells me ‘Amma, mereko chotu baby kabhi milegi? (Amma, when will I get my chotu baby?) Errr..now where did that come from out of the blue, I wonder???

She has come back with an awesome tan and a slight injury in the foot, and of course she has also come back with a lot of confidence, a lot of fun and a whole  new set of friends, uncles and aunties..for someone, who is yet to turn four, I think its been an awesome experience for her 🙂

===

and for all those who asked me if I missed RD..ah! well…I missed fighting with him for sure..made that up by having a major argument on Saturday night itself..
then I called up on Monday evening on the home landline..

RM: Hello Appa??? (I thought that was FIL)

The voice: nahi RD bol raha hoon..(no this is RD speaking)

Ah! well, if I cant even recognize this guy’s voice on the phone, wonder if I really missed him at all 😉

    “she has also come back with a lot of confidence, a lot of fun and a whole new set of friends, uncles and aunties..for someone, who is yet to turn four, I think its been an awesome experience for her” Isn’t that simply awesome? 🙂

  13. Mathangi Vijay says:

    Such a nice homecoming of R!! Glad to know that she enjoyed the trip and had great fun!!
    I am sure you would’ve missed RD while running the washing machine, or if you had wished to eat Rajma rite 😉

    • R's Mom says:

      actually no, FIL did the washing machine and the rajma waise bhi we couldnt eat because he was on vratham so no onion, no garlic..heheeh 🙂 but now that he is out of it, you are giving me ideas on demanding the rajma 🙂

  14. ashreyamom says:

    Absolutely delightful post…so good to have our little achiever back 😀

  24. R didnt have to SAY anything – her actions said it all. And she is such a darling – behaving all ‘grown-up’ what with so many travel,food, new people adjustments AND not create a fuss anywhere… Muuahhh and BIG HUGGIE to R for that trip – especially out of her comfort zone and no mamma – LOVE HER! And lots of wishes too…

    PS: My comments always dont get through. Am tired of typing and re-typing and re-re-typing. But here it goes again (I hope it goes through this time)

    PPS: Still waiting for some updates from you…

    • R's Mom says:

      Errr..muah and hugs will be passed…

      There is some problem with the WP thing..even Uma is not able to comment properly 😦

      Errr…I will respond to your PPS today

  25. chattywren says:

    RM, you and your daughter are both very brave people! A great experience for all involved methinks. I think a million times to leave the kids with their grandparents even to go for a small shopping trip, back home. And if my husband has to even look after one of the kids for more than a day at stretch, I don’t know, never has happened so far 🙂 Way to go!!

    • R's Mom says:

      Aiyo please da..we are not brave or anything..it just happened..and honestly CW, I would not leave R without one of the parent..I mean either me or RD HAS to be there…I am very clear on that 🙂

  26. Hehe. Good one, RM! I really want to meet R someday. Mumbai to Pune is not very far, no? Tell me when you come, ok?

    • R's Mom says:

      I have another blogger to meet up in Pune…I will plan a trip soon and let you know..I so want to meet GBM and her awesome author mom..

      LOL on the addedundum 🙂

  27. And oh, meet you also, of course 😉

  28. R is the bestest 🙂

    wlecome home little R

  29. Jazz says:

    And finally..

    True, kids make you senti with their actions, even though you control.
    LOL @ Food is our favourite topic.. same here
    Another lol at the way she explained you what is lays..

    And good that you sent her though she is not even 4, else she could not have met the wonderful people there and gathered the awesome memories. I’m sure she’ll keep telling you tales from her trip for many days to come.

  30. Smitha says:

    Discovered your blog over the weekend. You have a fan, albeit one who does not comment a whole lot. You have a lovely family and reading your blog restores my faith in humanity.

  31. anisnest says:

    wonderful R baby.. you are the star.. muah and tight hugs to you.. belated star birthday wishes to the real star.. 🙂

  32. R is back…loved the post…brought a big smile to my face. And lol at you thinking RD was your FIL! 😛

  33. Deeps says:

    She looked and me and kept touching my face…she touched my nose first, then my eyes beneath the soda bottle glasses, my lips and my ears and then tugged my hair..‘Amma’ she said with a huge smile” These lines esp welled me up, RM! The whole post made me very very senti! Hugs to both of you! R is a darling of a child! May God bless her 🙂

  34. Sreetama says:

    Yay to R & her success! She is such a smart & confident ! When I was 3, I don’t think I would have been ale to stay without my mom even for a single day! Hugs to her! How did she injure her foot? Hope it is better now? N u described the emotions in such an adorable way that I almost started crying!

  35. Scribby says:

    the hugging scene made me all senti…I was imagining R doing it all to you while reading this..and gadhi you didn’t feel senti at first? huh ! 😛 😛 😛

    R is the bestest! my girl! and waiting for date b’day to arrive…I can’t wait to hear her reaction on opening the gift [which I’m hoping reaches her well,sigh!]

  36. kudos to r for climbing, to u for letting her go & rd for his guts in taking her. hugss!
