Month: July 2008
It all started at school yesterday. I was inside the class room and was abt to leave…I was jus standing 2 ft behind Yuvan!!
Now..I shd give a jest of wat Yuvan is..He’s a very social expressive boy..likes to go say Hi to his classmates when they enter the classroom..,sometimes gives a light hug…which I feel is ok..though I always teach him the “Don’t tuch “ ..(As its the way it is here..M sorry m fellow Non-Indian frenzz…!!!)
But he is also loved for this character and all his classmates and parents don mind..n the other kids also reciprocate…
I shd also agree Yuvan has nice classmate frens ,play mates and neighbours whoa re fond of him/play with him and what not who are also non-Indian!!!!!And i ahve also had/have very good non-Indian neighbours who are very friendly to me…Kudoos to them!
Now…back to standing behind Yuvan…
There came in his classmate with her granny in to the class..n Yuvan just went running to her…Though I was standing behind him..the Granny sd to Yuvan.. a very stern n strict and loud
I was shocked…SHOCKED to hell!!!!
RT infront of me..Yuvan is getting such a treatment like this for doing nothing….Is running towards a classmate to see her in is such a big fault in this part of the world??
Then it jus struck me that same “NOooooooooo” she has uttered to Yuvan few times in the lift while we were coming up together or going down when Yuvan attempted to say “Bye’ or “Hi”….
I was so hurt that it happened in front of me..but I didn’t want to talk to her inside the classroom..as it will deftly disturb others…
But I did told the teacher,that “this has been happening quite frequently..can u just take note? N get back to me?”
The teacher sd”Sorry..will look in to it’/…The teacher is a very nice lady…very even to all kids and really Yuvan has learned a lot from her/thru her..
I was so disturbed I shd say…
Today I got the feedback..the Teacher has spoken to the granny..the granny sd “ everytime he (Yuvan ) is trying to hug or come near…he can’t do that or tuch her..she (her grand daughter ) is a “GIRL”.
The teacher tried to explain he is jus hugging with love..n he is a BOY n not a MAN..
But the granny was not willing to heed to the teacher..
M also lil disturbed by the fact why she chose to have a go at Yuvan rather coming n talking to me that she didn’t want this from Yuvan to her Granddaughter. I shd have handled it rather letting Yuvan experiencing the “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO’z”
But I did tell the teacher.. “Pls let her know that she can’t shout at Yuvan like that wherever she sees him …in the classroom..Outside..it gives a bad feeling for Yuvan..as well me ..at the very early start of my day!!!!… Whatever let her tell me or U (teacher)”
M hurt n disturbed!!!!!
I hope u guys remember that i was Little stressing out on Yuv’s Alphabets n numbers learning curve!!!!
Waaah…He can now recognise,compare n tell all the alphabets..His favourites are H , W and I..and the ones he always forgets is G n J!!!!
Numbers are he is thru with 1- 10..though he forgets then n there..but counts on his own..(courtesy : Mickey mouse counting CD ) from 1-10…throwing the balls form his playhouse one by one..tapping his feet 10 times…
Loves peg boards so much now-a-days..always wants to travel with books..loves to recognise n learn n reciprocate from all the picture books he has!!!
now takes the lil story books and recognises alphabets..n tells me..I have started to teach him small words with spellings C-O-W all alphabets his favourites,COW is one of his fav animals ..as back home in India v have it in My Uncles’ farmhouse…so he jus loves cow… and calls my uncle “Thatha (grandfather in my Mother tongue) – COW” since they have Cow’s in their farmhouse n has spent a lot of time with them too..LOL
He literally loves reading and learning…writes number 1 and A to a certain extent!!!
Latest passion to play with are the BUbbles..I think there wd b no kid who doesn’t like to play with the so called B-U-B-B-L-E-S
M a happy mom now!!!!
Literally understands and reciprocates a lot….
Vocabulary n communication is increasing leaps n bounds every day!!!!
Well done my Boy n Keep it up!!! m proud of u!!
Wow..what a feeling to b back writing in this space!!!
It was Wednesday..ie two days back..I woke with a heavy shower outside,the climate so chill…sending my thoughts back to my hometown…Where every other day from Sep- Dec is like this!!!
Eash was on MC and I made Yuv ready for the school..
It was still raining..but it had come down a bit..v walked thru the shelters for a while..and Yuvan was full covered with his jacket n cap overall…and when we were walking along the road under the shelter..I could literally feel the drizzle on to my face that was carried with the wind..wow ..what a feeling…chill drizzle on to the face…dressed in a cosy jacket..(me too)..and enjoying the free fall of rain…
It all reminded me my schooling days back in India..rain was always fun..as schools will b closed for two-three days..so u can send paper boats in the water.,eat hot n spicy snacks at home..sleep a little longer in the comfort of the mattress n quilt with jus the head popping out….
when the school re opens..its even more fun..going to school under the umbrella chatting away what we did during the rain holidays..wat fun!!!
I love driving my two-wheeler in the chill evenings (not rainy evenings off-course) on the Coimbatore roads with a jacket. Itz an amazing feeling…driving at 50kmph with the chill wind blowing on to your face,cold gripping your fingers,chill wind finding its way into the jacket….
ooooohhhhhhhhh oooooooooo…I MISS U CBE!!!!!
I remember my good fren asking me the other day “How do u manage both blogs..wat makes u going??”” I wrote her back ” My passion for writing and my unexplained energy towards myself ,my family and wat not??”
So why did I disappear??
First,to my shock I had missed the dates for application in few good Kg’s here for Yuvan’s admission next year coz of our inconclusive re-location plans!!!But then woke up not so late and decided to secure place whatever may b our relocation plans..
I did read lots of reviews on the schools , my considerations,requirements…,whether the admission still open if I was interested n then a few school tours,lots of phone calls…
Finally I secured admission for Yuv in PAP,as well zeroed in on one Montessori after a school tour n discussion…now I got one more second tour pending n they have places for Jan ’09 intake!!! So will have to register latest by September!!!
Then came the much expected bombshell..My owner increased my rental 50% + of my current rental from sep!!!
SO v jus made a decision which was so much pending since 1 year to buy a house here and stay back for another two years ,Our PR will b renewed as well Yuv will finish his KG in Montessari!!!! A very quick one indeed and v started off the next day viewing!!! But turned out to be a better one for all of us in the family!!!Thatz wat I want and thatz whom My life is revolving around!!!
Luckily the 4th house v saw itself was modern,very new,very well maintained and so much to our satisfaction,expectations and msot importantly within the budget we cd afford…
Yet v held the House for 3 more days n had more than 16 views n decided that’s where v both had the positive vibration!!!
Signed the OTP on 16th JUly… and oterh stuffs on process..If everythign goes fyne..we’ll b moving into the new house by end october!!!!!
I need u’r prayers n Best wishes all of you!!!
Wish me !!!!
And “the House” is gonna be “OUR HOME”
Was very much stressed out that I couldn’t sleep properly!!!
I have more to tell u..

Here I Go…First Today is my Dear fren B’s Birthday..I wish her the best of years ahead!!!! “Happy Birthday to u…” *sing*
Yuvan started having fun with his train, race cars…out of the blue as I had already told Yuvan is not a toy man…now he plays for a while with his cars. Lego’s and his train talking with it n enjoying it..
More..he started pedaling his cycle well inside the home. He is a cycle crazy fellow. The way he bought his cycle and rode home itself will make another post for me..so next time…okie?? Loves his cycle so much now-a-days!!!! But can u believe I never had a tri-cycle in my early childhood??? *cross verified with my Mom too..* My first was a joint savings effort by me n my brother initiated by my father at the age of 10 or 12 if m not wrong!!!!!
The last Sunday (ie 29thJune) Yuvsaw his first movie in the Cinema ” Kung Fu Panda”..
We made him see the preview at home (a short clip..),
In which he loved the Monkey and Panda. Before starting, v were lil sure that he wdbe interested, given the duration being 1.30 hrs compared to 2.30 – 3hrs for a Tamil movie, which we haven’t been going to Cinemaz to watch from the time Yuvan was born. Sans the effort taken to see the Movie “Pokkiri” at the cinemas, meant that me n Yuvan were playing in the lobby catch n run for almost 70% of the movie.LOL 😉
On the movie..
KP is one fo the best animated action movie’s I have seen so far. And I literally loved every bit of it!!Yuvan loved all the kunfu sequences which were plenty. but he wd get lil “not at home” when they start conversing…those times Yuvanwas busy talking with us (me, my hubby n frens) to everyone of us he wd say ” M..Panda”, ” V …Panda” “Appa..Panda” and so on…
Yuvan loved the Panda n the monkey. Identified his favorite noodles and many more in it..LOL..:) Learned new words like “Tortoise…”
Amazing movie. Must watch!!!!Ultimately Yuvan enjoyed it n me too…
Then, My Blogger fren Angel had given me an award…which meant a lot to me…
The friendship Award ..cos Friends mean a lot to me and my frens are also one of my major source of energy everyday!!!How else wd I term them ,if not this way???
Thanks Angel ((((( Hugzzzz)))))..
M happy Happy Happy..
So here I pass the happiness, gratitude and thanks to the frens I have made in this blog world.
And Not to forget My Angel!!!!, who gave me this beautiful award!
Then ..Yuvan gave me a shock n surprise yesterday..
My fren B and me bring back Sam n Yuvan together…
It’s just a common Traffic signal (or shd I put it Traffic junction???)from which we take to different T.signals to reach our homes..
Yesterday Yuvan started asking me ” aunty..veetu..” ,(on the way back from school )meaning he wanted to go to Sam’z place with aunty B for a while.
Until now every time Sam n yuvan play together,either i go to her home for the day or she come over .I haven’t let Yuvan alone or rather i thought he cannot stay alone without me..*wink*
He kept asking me n i told him “aunty is coming over tomo,why u wanna go today..” then he sd “amma..aunty veettu”
then i sd him “oku go with aunty ‘ To my surprise to held her hands n sd “bubye ‘ n went..then i thought he wd cry after crossign the signal..do u think he cried??? NOOOO..he did say again bubyen left with her to her
place…she called me to say after 10 minutes “Yuvan n sam are so disciplined that they are not fighting at all (they always have this lil clashes for some or other reason..then one of them give up for his fren)..Yuvan asked me that he wanted to ride cycle ,they are having a snack now..n playing together..so u take u’r time n come over for lunch”..
It took me easily 1 hr plus to finish all my work at home..still now news..then i wnet to her home..stood at the grill and saw them ..they were talking n learning in the mini laptop,wat a sight to see..and Yuvan came running after seeing me n started explaining me wat they were doing…
I was in such a great shock-surprise I could not react..
First..Yuvan can stay without me for atleast half a day with his best fren at his place ..meaning that he is growing up..
I now have to get prepared for all this..
Third…I have a very good fren who cd take care of my son as hers!!!Thanks B!
Itz a nice feeling but still m not out of that shock-surprise.. MArk the day 1st July..Yuvan’s visit to Sam’z place without me!!!
