Conversation between Dad and Daughter last evening.

Shriyu: appa…appa…Choci
Appa: Shriya, appa ku Kissy kudu
Shriyu: NO NO choci
Appa: Kissy?
Shriyu: Choci pheezzz
Appa: Ok, Here you go, choci, Kissy pls?
Shriyu: N-O!

And amma was smiling at her clever lil monkey, appa thought Shriyu will give him a Kissy if he gives her – her choci. But she got the choci and did not kiss him…LOL!


My handbags are NOT mine anymore… It’s all Shriya’s once I come home.
She takes the bag, and her sippy-cup, turns back and waves Bye-Bye to me and pretends to go out! How Cute!!!
She has my handbag while brushing her teeth, while eating, while playing…

Shriya plays MOM all the time with her Purple doll. She feeds her, puts her to bed, gives her water. I guess Miss.Purple has is not feeling well, Shriya is giving her, her Ear Infection medicine. Haha!

It’s been 3 weeks since Shriya started her new school. And I see a tremendous improvement in her attitude 🙂
She doesn’t whine much in the evenings. We give her Dinner as soon as get her in the house. After early dinner, we will play outside which she L-O-V-E-S!

She now counts 1 to 10 along with me
Sings and does the action for Five Little Monkeys! and ENJOYS it thoroughly

Am so happy for her 🙂 Love ya hunniee-pie

Shriya, yummy venuma? – NO
Juice kudikariya? – NO
thaachikalaama? – NO

I’m hearing all NO’s now, from my little one…Hmmm, the effect of going to child care now…

Less than a month for my little one to step into her Terrible Two’s and the trailer is no less than the whole movie!

Her tantrums, stubborn-ness,whine grows day by day and i see no discipline in her. And when I try to discipline, she starts moving away from me more and more and calls out for Dad. How much ever firm Iam, she is even more firm and stubborn.

Hmmm, hope to see a change in her soon!

Signs of a cranky toddler who cries most of the time, and doesn’t want to eat, clingy to their parents, change in body temperature are typical signs of ‘Teething’. But having a 23 month old, I thought teething stage should be a breeze. But NO, it doesn’t seem so.

After a week at new child care, I thought my toddler will be happy to spend time with her mom during the weekend. But last weekend was awful with her crying, I-will-not-eat tantrums. She sometimes keeps her 4 fingers (except thumb) into her mouth and keep biting it, and drools as she cries, and prefers fruits and milk to solid food. I try to understand her problem but she just cries and cries and cries…I hope she gets over this teething issue soon 😦 Poor thing, am unable to see her cry in pain 😦

Last evening, as she reached out the cabinets to get her favorite snack, Raisins, she gobbled them as fast as she can and all of a sudden, she held her hand under her jaw and cried in pain. That’s when I realised how hard it is for her to bear the pain. Awwwww, I scooped her immediately and made her lie on my shoulders while I swayed from side to side to give her some sort of comfort. Her warm body made me rush to the medical cabinet to give her some Tylenol. Turning on the Big Purple Dinosaur on the Television, I sat on the couch with my warm, tired, sleepy toddler. Ah Bliss! She was quiet & calm and seemed to enjoy that moment. Hope she gets well soon!

Love ya baby! Muaahhhh
