Celebrating 100 days of numeracy!!

Samarth's school does all sort of interesting activities with the kids. The latest one was this. They had to stick 100 objects of their choice onto a t-shirt to celebrate 100 days of numeracy (maths).

We decided on making a tree using cereal box cardboard and then sticking 100 pieces of thread on to it. 

The tree denotes the school and the threads denote the children who come together there to study. Interesting, isn't it?

........and the final t-shirt! :-)

My little helper!

On the first weekend of March 2013, dearest hubby had gone on a team building official trip... and I was left to myself, to manage the 2 tykes :-) Samarth is 6.5 years old and Sumedh is 6.5 months old - just in case you didn't know :-)

Though I was all confident that I'll do a good job, intrinsically I was hoping that all would go well as planned and we would not have any nasty surprises to deal with : : (such as tantrums, insomnia etc).

We actually managed so well and let me tell you who was the surprise package for the weekend - yes you guessed right, it was Samarth

My 'all-grown-up' sweetheart Samarth did everything he could with his little hands and he was in all certainty my lil Man Friday - right from entertaining his brother, to bringing me nappies during when they needed changing, to being such a sweetheart and maturely taking care of himself too in the process! I will always remember that weekend as a time when I bonded the most with my kids :-)

I find it so hard to believe that Samarth is already growing up so soon. In this very blog, I have written in the past about a lot of cute stuff he's said and done - can't believe those days are gone and all I have is just the memories that are etched in my mind and heart.

Where does the time fly? - is a question I often ask myself. I don't know if I want to confront the answer just as yet. I wish I could freeze time right now. I wish I could pour some of the kiddie fragrances and love into a bottle and seal it forever as mine alone. Sigh! :-)
