This was the first sports day I attended. Last year I had not sent her because she was severely allergic to dust and was wheezing. This year however she was adamant that she would go. And I’m so glad we went 🙂
There were such cute races.. 1st there was the car racing .. LOL. the kids each held a cardboard steering and ran the 500 mtrs dash. Then there were other races like the horse riding ( riding a cardboard horse) and taekewondo race.. brisk walking with boxing like actions.. It was soooooooooo much fun watching kids run the race cheered on by parents and teachers. Some kids ran really fast.. I mean REALLY fast.
Lil p ran the basketball race – running with a big ball and then dunking the ball in a dustbin (basket) at the finish line. Lil P has always been a little weak at sports and trips quite often.. and it swelled my heart with pride that she completed the race and gave it her best..
Then it was the parents race… and anybody who’s seen me knows that I’m not the sporty types.. hell I look like I’ve never exercised in my life! Anyway, the teachers had handed a chit to each parent and whosoever held a star had to run the race. So there I was waiting very self consciously at the starting line.. and then Lil p saw me! .. She stopped every1 and told them.. look my maama is running.. that’s my mumma.. and she was sooo proud!!! I forgot all my inhibitions and ran.. I was not the last! so that’s something I am really thankful about.. 🙂 and a happy mom n baby returned home.
Yesterday she had a carnival at school. Lil p went dresses as a fairy princess – with a tiara , a satin frock, fairy wings and a wand! There was cotton candy, popcorn, balloon slides, merry go round.. and some carnival like games I believe. It was a good chance for the dad n daughter to bond..
She has her annual day on Saturday. Lil p is a red flower .. I have no other clue.
Its been nice moving to this complex… I come back by 6.30 and there are still lots of kids Lil p’s age playing in the garden & play area. There is a tiny library, a nilgiris , a badminton court, billiards, table tennis, lawn tennis, a pool and lots of garden space for the kids to run around.. On the days that hubby comes late we usually go out for mini picnics. There is a boulevard and a walkway with benches stretching along the middle of the apartment. We packed bread butter jam, cake and some juice and sat on the bench and ate it yesterday.. played ball and giggled like school girls.. all at 9 PM … Life’s good. 🙂
