I am really really upset.
R cried for the FIRST TIME while getting into the school bus saying amma please mereko school nahi jana…I must admit, I was so shocked..because she was nicely talking to till the bus came, and then as soon as it came, she said, I dont want to go and as it came nearer, it became a scream, she shouted, cried, caught my kurta (tore a bit of it as well) crying Amma please amma. I felt horrible..I kept asking her kyun kya hua, but she kept screaming, nahi jana, nahi jana..the aunty in the bus, had to practically pull her up. I kept telling her baby dont cry, she was red, tears pouring down her eyes, and gave me such a pitiful look, I thought my heart would break into a million pieces. Darn! this parenting bit is just not easy.
If she was someone who cried about going to school or daycare, I wouldnt have felt bad. Even on the first day in nursery, she said bye to me pretty nonchalantly and went up the bus without a backward glance. So this was pretty heart breaking.
Sigh! I am not able to concentrate on anything and just keep seeing her face in front of me. and trust me, this is from someone who is not even the maternal types 😦
The rains are pouring and pouring and pouring in Bombay. Saturday and Sunday was completely wet. Monday morning it continued. I keep telling myself to be positive and saying ‘we need the rains, we need the rains, we need the rains’ Its like a continuous chant to myself….
MIL is out of station and today morning I ended up cooking for such a long time that I got into the kitchen at 4.30 and came out only at 6!! not that I cooked a lot..FIL is going to make his own bhaji and rice, and yet, I was cooking and cooking *rolls eyes* Some days can be crazy eh?
RD went for R’s open house at school on Saturday and came back pretty impressed with her teacher! I hope R enjoys her Sr.Kg as much as she enjoyed her Jr. Kg!
They started Hindi alphabets for R (In Sr. KG!! Gasp) she did the first two…
Today in the potty
R: Amma, amrut matlab what?
R: Aur, aanar matlab
Aur Amma, aam matlab kya
RM: Mango da
R: Oh toh Aam ko Hindi mein kya bolte hain?
This, exactly THIS is why I was worried about her language. She gets confused on what is called what in what language!
