I know my last post was rather gloomy!! Thought I’d cheer myself (and others) by sharing a few pics from last week..
This is Lil p’s latest doll collection, which is showcased (very proudly) next to our TV in the living room.. Latest additions are the 2 barbies.. I had kept them hidden away all these days but she saw them when I was diwali-cleaning. She has 5 more of those which I safely kept out of reach ( just to make it clear to all the anti barbie fans! none of these are bought. All are gifts) .. Then there is her first soft toy – rabbit (sasa) who is carried everywhere… I mean EVERYWHERE. and wears a pink frock most days!! Then there is a white n pink teddy bear.. he is the papa teddy bear (from goldilocks and the 3 bears) … and the cutsie yellow teddy bear .. (A gift from PC from my college days).. who mostly has stomach aches.. just so that Lil p can poke him with an injection & feed him his meds to make him big n strong. [ wonder how that logic never worked with Lil p!!] n 2 cute cloth dolls.. aptly called mahi n urvi ( her fav cousins!!) ..and finally there is the queen barbie, who does not have toto (bath) cos shes the queen u see.. .. and the naughty barbie!! Why naughty?? err .. thats cos she doesn’t wear her ‘chaddi’ … anyway, notice the red mark on their forehead??? Thats from the kumkum shes obsessed with.. Lil P lovesssssssss to apply kumkum to every lady that comes visiting!
and the 2nd pic is from 1st day of diwali… Lil p busy putting ‘apple’ rangoli
Thats my lil ‘lefty’ !!! Do u see the rolled up sleeves??? I was wearing a 3/4th sleeve chudidar when I got down to putting rangoli and so rolled up my sleeves.. Lil P did the same .. except her shirt had mega sleeves!!! Cute na?? N oh!! speaking abt rangoli and not showing u the pic would be sacrilege.. Check it here
Edited to add : Oh I forgot to share what happened yesterday!! U remember the themocol diyas that I painted and Lil p stuck along the our corridor??? Well they were stolen yesterday!! By our apartment kids!!
Normally nobody is home during the week day.. but yesterday I was working from home as Lil p was sick.. In the evening I heard chattering voices of some kids from our block.. I thought they have come to call Lil P to play and went towards the door to tell them that shes just fallen asleep, don’t disturb.. n what do i see!! 3 kids pulling out the diyas and running away!! I was dumbfounded.. Did not know how to react! These are the same kids I had earlier spoken about here. First foul language, then misbehaviour, now STEALING!!!
Whats wrong with their mom!!!
