The second half of the year is very busy for us socially. Almost every weekend we have functions like birthday or pasni or something else. There is also Dashain and Tihar followed by my own birthday, AS’s birthday .these months are a bit chaotic.
We have been going out so much lately that on weekend, this is what Chhori asks the first thing in the morning.
Chhori : “No work today Mama.”
Me: “No because it is a weekend.”
Chhori (screams): “Yes weekend!” (Even though she probably doesn’t understand what it means 🙂 )
Me: “Yes baby.”
Chhori: “We have party today?”
Me: “Not today, so and so will come to our house for dinner tonight.”
Chhori: “So party tomorrow?”
Most of the time the answer is yes so she thinks weekend means party 🙂
One of her teacher from childcare asked me last week if we have a party every weekend. I was surprised and asked her why she asked that.
Apparently every Monday when Chhori goes back to the child care, they asked her what she did and her answer was always that we went to a party for didi (sister) or bhai (brother) or aunty etc. They thought she was making all these answers up but she definitely was telling the truth. I am so tried during the weekends that sometime I look forward to a Monday to rest 🙂
Out of some of them have been big events where I dress in traditional outfits and I love it.
Also Chhori loves to dress in her princess outfits.
She has been very social lately and loves to dance when we go to these parties.
Last weekend we had AS’s cousin’s party and we were all sitting on the table eating the entrée. Chhori decided to dance after her food and was just standing around our table. After a while she came to me and this is the conversation I had with Chhori.
Chhori: “Mama, I love party.”
Me: “That’s good, I love party too.”
Chhori: “Please stand up.”
Me: “No, I want to sit for a while.”
Chhori pulling my hand: “Please stand up”
Standing up and following her to the dance floor: “Now you go and dance.”
Chhori: “Mama, stand here and take my photo please.”
Then she starts dancing. I was speechless and didn’t know how to respond and what to do expect laugh and take pictures of her.
My baby is growing up so fast.
