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"
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!! :)
