R, this one is recorded specially for you so that when you are older, you realise how much you can embarrass your mom!
So I go to her parent teacher meet on Saturday, leaving her at the daycare, since I am unwell, etc etc…
There are about 5-6 other parents there…
I tell the teacher that I am R’s mom and she asks me where R is…I tell her that I am unwell so dropped her to the daycare etc etc…
Teacher explains everything about the ‘exams’ and then she asks any questions
While the parents are discussing between them, I tell her ‘Teacher you were supposed to give a food schedule for the tiffins, can you please share that?’
Teacher bursts out laughing…
I thought you would ask it 🙂
RM: yaa, its just useful you see…I dont have to think in the morning what to make
T: But R always finishes her food…infact she looks around and checks what everyone has got
Laughter from the parents
RM: I know I know..but still, it would be so much easier right, if we had a schedule
T: I can understand that…I will check and send it across
T: by the way, R’s Mom do you have a small baby at home now?
Everyone is now staring..
T: errr..well…you got a baby at home???
RM: no no..absolutely not
T: oh well..R was mentioning something about a baby..either that she already has one at home or that she is expecting one soon
RM: what, what, what?
RM: no no…nothing nothing…I am not expecting and neither do we have a kid at home…its just R
and now all the parents are smiling again…
T: well, she definitely wants a sibling I think..she is craving for one..infact, she was asking me the other day if I had a brother or sister at home..since she wants one
I dont know where to look or what to say
RM: Errr…well teacher, I guess, I cant give in to all her cravings eh?
and the whole class bursts out laughing..
This girl is responsible for all my white hair I tell ya!
and on the Julia/Julie project Recipe #11
here is the first sweet 🙂 Errr..healthy sweet, which was used as prasad for Janmasthami, thanks to the brat’s insistence of having sweets on the birthday
Take some poha, and soak it..make be one bowl….remove the water immediately..
Take a kadai, put the poha, some ghee and some gud to it..and let it cook in low flame for a long time…(I took 2 cups of soaked poha, 1 cup of gud (I think 3/4th cup should suffice, and two spoons of ghee) once its kinda cook (the gud should melt), then add 1/2 cup of grated coconut to it…
Most people usually make it by making gud ka paag (I dont know what its called in English) by melting the gud in water, and then added the poha etc….this method which I used seems easier 🙂
It tastes pretty yum..and I think I can qualify this as healthy snack because all ingredients are good for health …
and of course, we did the usual pal payasam and kela for the nevidiya and the sweet poha of course, also made the Krishna ka feet with the kolam, half using my hands and half using R’s feet (RD had this brilliant idea of using her feet!!! which flopped honestly, but we dont dwell on that 🙂 )
