Dear Chirpy-Your habits

Dear Chirpy,

One must learn how-to-grow-up-fast from you children. You are 1.5 years young already,can you believe it? Oh yes you can but your mum cannot. She still recalls you in the form of that tiny human being handed over to her a year back. You will not remember that cause you haven’t witnessed that. Just through my letters may be someday you’ll have a fair idea of how you as a baby were but that’s that…the intensity of it all will be felt by only me and your dadda.

With so many cute things to note down there are few peculiar habits that you have started showing us,which need a serious mention in this series of letters that I write to you. Like I read on one of the blogs recently that these writing about a baby’s childhood is kind of a creation of ‘that place’ for the child where he/she can go,to know his/her younger self.

In our days,people used to write dairies to make note of the things happening in their life at that moment.Some people still do but now blogs have come in handy,so there…I hope this place becomes your ‘that’ place ๐Ÿ™‚

Any way, check out this list …

  1. You have toย make a fountain of water by your mouth,as a signal that you don’t need to drink anymore,instead of simply saying no.
  2. Once you are done drinking your quota ofย water/juice/shakes,you have toย throw away the remaining drink and also the glass, instead of simply keeping the glass aside.
  3. You have toย scratch your right ear when you are sleepy.ย Why only right ear,tell tell?ย 
  4. You love writing [or modern art shall I say?] on any paper that you get hold of. When we give you the pencil/ crayons,you first use it with your right hand and then shift it to your left and continue writing. You have toย constantly shuffle right and left hand. Are you going to be ambidextrous?
  5. You have your own little library of some 10-12 books and you love them to the core. But the moment you see me with a book,you have toย read only that book. Nothing else matters to you than mamma’s book!
  6. You love music for sure,especially when you are getting massaged you have toย listen to the music.You don’t get the massage done unless the music isย switchedย on!ย What’s with this music and massage thing, spa style eh?
  7. When I sing you nursery rhymes or other songs you listen to them so intently [or so it appears] that you have toย fold your hands and sit quietly-Your dadda always tells me that you mean to tell me that you are bugged with my singing..sob sob!!! Really?ย ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
  8. If you want something, youย shouldย haveย that something right then. Nothing placates you or no diversion works with you. Goes to show you are becomingย ziddiย day by day,sigh!
  9. When you call out for me youย have toย say ‘aai’ and ‘mamma’ all at the same time,like you are calling 2 people ๐Ÿ˜€ and while calling your dadda youย have toย  only take his name,which you learnt to say very early!ย When will you start saying Baba,darling?
  10. Yourย favoriteย task in the kitchen these days is to collect the potatoes from the basket and put them one by one in your grand mother’s lap.ย And you do it every single day ๐Ÿ˜€
Grow up quickly a little more princess, so that I can ask you what’s with potatoes, music and writing with both hands ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes adult minds are illogically inquisitive,so you get prepared for question being shot at you by your silly mother who clings to every piece of cloth of yours, memorizes every single word you say, notes down all dates of your milestones achieved,cherishes every single time you call her aai and holds her hands against her chest every single time you give her hug and run away leaving behind the warmth of your pure love in her!
Love you princess,
Yours Aai!

  1. Cute little princess she is.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ha ha some peculiar habits like scratching the right ear will remina etched forever in your mind.. ๐Ÿ™‚ She sits in such a calm pose while you are singing then there are only two options either she is very impressed by your singing or she has given up.. take your pick ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. that’s so cute…she has indicated love for spa very early ๐Ÿ˜€ and, yeah, she wants a huger library ๐Ÿ™‚ and, may be she will turn out a left hander!!! or, relieving the pain ๐Ÿ™‚ but, these letters are really cute and I am sure she will feel very happy reading them later in life!!! oh btw, do keep on downloading your blog timely to keep a copy with you safe.

    1. yeah I can see that spa twinkle in her eyes ๐Ÿ˜‰ oh I would love to expand her library but right now her habit goes to show that even then she’ll want to read the book in my hand ๐Ÿ˜› Oh yes I’ve planned to save these letters elsewhere too ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. so cute ๐Ÿ™‚ R used to use his left hand more often at one time causing us to speculate if he’d turn out to be a lefty but gradually he began to show his preference for the right. And, no he is not ambidextrous ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. 1.25! 1.5 kaise? I have been counting months since I read this ๐Ÿ˜
    Sigh. Man, these notes will be so much more precious once all this is a thing of the past. Guaranteed laughs, and sentimental tears too ๐Ÿ™‚ Mmuuuaah to C!

    1. I bow to thee madam ๐Ÿ™‚ mistake mistake…err umm..mistype mistype hai jee ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. awwwwwwwwww, so sweet of u.. i wish my mom also had written such posts for me to again and again.. so, i better write one for bunty before she asks me for one.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Aaah. I love toddler hood. A cuddly baby all over the house. A little strong personality of her own. Just want to hold these moments forever ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. And forgot to say.. these letters are going to be so precious… I am so glad you are doing this for Chirpy.. she is going to enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom has all our memories etched in her heart forever that she keeps in repeating every single incident with any chance she gets,,, now we know what we did from the time we were born.. but we would have loved to have a journal ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. yes that’s precisely the agenda ๐Ÿ™‚ I want Chirpy to know how she was as a child and it will serve as a memoir for me too when this little bridie grows up ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. A very precious post this is ๐Ÿ™‚ Chirpy is going to love you for writing this when she reads it ๐Ÿ™‚
    Bless her, the little princess ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. We as mommies, should record all mundane events of our toddlers like this…u know we may enjoy and cherish these moments now but as these are so small that might forget later on…..another +ve side of blogging ๐Ÿ˜€

    Really sweet post…and i can relate to all the activities of Chirpy as my kiddo is of same age ๐Ÿ™‚

    Assume that she loves ur singing and continue ur song…i do that ๐Ÿ˜€

    Good that she is only keeping potatoes in her granny’s lap…my baby tries to eat raw potato!!!

    1. hahaah …I know how funny it can get at times…eating raw potatoes is thankfully not struck her but I’m sure someday she’s going to do something like it ๐Ÿ˜€ and how commonly do children love dirt and all things dirt,right? dunno where they learn it from ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Oh she is just like Sammy who still has not figured out which is the best hand to hold a pencil. He can easily switch from one to the other…sigh!! There was a time when he used to hold the spoon in his left hand too. I must say I was a little freaked out but never forced him to use his right hand and just like that he switched to his right hand exclusively for eating ๐Ÿ˜›

    Aww my little princess sure is a sweetie pie ๐Ÿ™‚

C'mon,out with it,right here :)
