Blessings and The Little Astronaut!

I got a note from Suma asking me to drop by her blog. Imagine my delight when I saw this lovely post . With the incessant cough and cold going on in the Nantu-household, this is just what I need today. Some Positive vibes. It seems like a wonderful idea to spread this among my wonderful blogger friends. This is for each and every one of you out there. Thanks Suma for sending this to me and giving me a chance to be fairy godmother ;)
Now to pass this on..I tag
Vish - My little sister who introduced me to blogging. Who writes such wonderful fantasies but her posts are so f
ar between... hope you do write more and add to your story.
Vidhya and Gomathi - Two of my dearest friends.. who have been blogging less and less, but their excuse ... they are embarking on a larger and more beautiful journey of motherhood. God bless you both! Come back to blogging soon.

Dotmom - Her serene posts inspire me, and she has a lovely sense of humor that drag me to her blog every time she writes. Hoping to hear a lot more of your and Chips adventures

Rayshma - A sunny personality who writes so wonderfully. Her posts are so full of life.

Aryan - Aryan is such a darling .. his cute posts are a reason to smile everyday.. Aryan's mom you are alright too.. but your son rocks ;)

I want to talk about so many more of my blogger friends.. but I think I will make a separate post of it! :) God Bless you all. Please pass this on to all those you want to send positive vibes too. I encourage all of you out there to do this, not just the ones I tagged.
No post of mine feels complete without some Nantu-updates. But first applying the Anti-Jinx Dotmom so thoughtfully created for us. The snowman first melted and then was buried in the snow that fell yesterday. Thank you God for answering my prayers, but then the snowman is long forgotten!
Nantu is now pestering me for some TV-Time (An unimaginative term eh?). Anyway, for the first
2 years of his life, I kept Nantu away from the television fearing the worst. Then for the next year, I taught him to watch some cartoons while I had some peace. Especially when I am in the shower, this way I know he is out of trouble and there will be no constant banging on the door with shouts of "Amma are you done yet?".

Anyway, Nantu is usually allowed half an hour of TV-Time, which usually means one episode of his choice. Lately he wants to watch Little Einsteins all the time. I have not watched this cartoon so have only some vague idea about what goes on there. So when Nantu brought out his toy boat the other day and claimed it was a rocket ship, I sat there looking amused.

Nantu "Amma this is not a boat okay, this is a rocket ship"
Amma: "Wow, so does it fly"

Nantu: "Yes, I am flying a rocket ship in space"
Amma: "Really"
Nantu: "I am going to the moon"
Amma: "Really, so moon is in space?"

Nantu thinks quietly, you can almost hear his brain whirring: "No the moon is in the sky."

Anyway, regardless of where the moon is I am in awe already. First sunning, now this, I do have a budding space scientist on my hands. Uhuh, soon he is going to realise that his mommy is too dull for his wild thoughts! As I sat thinking about the future .. Nantu's brain was working too..
Nantu: "Amma lets rent a rocket and go to India" I grinned.. space scientist or not, an entrepreneur for sure. What a wonderful idea, no more 24 hr journeys to India, we could go in a Rocket!! :)

Nantu is a smrt kid. I have said it before and I will say it again! About TV watching.. I was pretty much the same.. I have seen a few lil einstein episodes.. Chip likes them too.. and when nantu does build a rocet to rent out, can we get tixx please on its maiden voyage?
