Life in Pictures

Sometimes, I realise that I am really bad as a mom in terms of capturing my child’s life in pictures. Also, that RD, R and I, all three of us, hate getting ourselves clicked. We need to have  a really good reason to be in a picture. Which is not good, if you want to actually sit in your old age and want to relive memories.

Scribby told me once that ‘I am not clicking pictures, I am creating memories’ when she clicked pics of R and me when we met up 🙂 I agree to her, but still the whole point of clicking pics somehow gets lost in our family! RD was pretty impressed by the pics which Hitchy clicked (He clicked really awesome ones..like the professional photographers, so much that R loves seeing them again and again!) and wants to invest in a DSLR camera. I am wondering if its worth the money spent, especially for our family.

Anyways, sometimes we do capture pictures on a whim on the mobile phone. And here they are 🙂

We are helping out Amma every Friday night and Saturday night with the patrams! And doing a decent job as well :)

Apart from watching TV by the hour, we also spend some time painting what Vidya aunty gave us :)

When we go out, we insist that Appa stands right at the bottom of the slide to pick us up before our clothes get dirty!

We insist Amma draws the kolam, but we add all the flowers to it. (Side note: I just did the outline, the brat actually did the entire pookolam by herself for Onam!)

We insist Amma makes a mini Onam Sadya after seeing Monika aunty and Vimmuuu uncle's Onam Sadyas..so Amma comes up with Payasam, Avial, Sambhar, Achar, Rice, Ghee and chips :)

Amma uses left over coconut to make some yummy coconut ladoos. We just roll them, but dont eat them!!!

We decide to bake a cake on the day we come back early from daycare, (Amma has the option of letting me watch TV otherwise!!!) So we take a simple chocolate cake from the IMC book week which Deeps aunty gave, do all the ratio proportion which Amma reads out and then bake the cake! It was yummmmmm

    Yummy pictures of the food. Nice to see some pics of R. I find that I have also stopped clicking fewer pictures as compared to before when the kids were little.
