Few days pinky was playing in the corridor of our apartment,my neighbour son who is of 2 years old came to play with her.Pinky doesn’t know hindi and that boy is a Pakistani and he doesn’t know our language.But he was communicating with her and she is also responding him very well as if both of them knew each other languages.He was riding a tri-cycle and he offered her to ride and she with a big smile on her face went and sat on the tri-cycle and he taught her how to ride it.After sometime she got down and told him to sit and she pushed him and both enjoyed every bit of it.
Then his mother called him inside and took the cycle inside and pinkuda was inconsolable,I have never seen her crying so much.She said aunty said bye to me and took babu inside,i want babu.Then i promised her that i will buy a cycle for you today.She huged me and said amma happy tooo much.
We went to baby shop to buy the cycle and the moment we entered the store she was in full enthu.We told her choose,she selected the sameones which that boy was having.After we brought she doesn’t want me to keep that in the car dick as she wanted to keep the cycle with her at the back seat.Some how I made her listen and kept the cycle at the back.
She is not leaving the cycle even for a second.Other than her potty and sleep she is doing everything on the cycle.First day she tried to keep the cycle on her bed.She even takes that to the washroom when she is taking bath and washes her cycle there.She offers that boy her cycle and she rides his cycle.Heights is that she doesn’t allows varu to touch the cycle.More importantly she corrects if I say cycle, she says its her car.
Yesterday varu had sports meet in her school.She was so exicited that she didn’t sleep properly before night.Got up at 5.00 in the morning by herself.It was treat to eyes to see small kids performing.Varu was in fun games and she was the first one to run from her class.Her class didn’t win but she is not ready to accept.She says my teacher told me we won and when i go to school my teacher will give me the prize.When she saw us standing in the stands she was so happy and she was showing her sister to her friends.
These are small joys of life which i would have missed if i was working.Sometimes i think of my education getting wasted sitting at home.But when i think of kids and their smiles i don’t regret about my decision of staying at home. Full day pinky is behind me.When i am cooking in the kitchen she gets her toys and sits behind me plays.Once her sister is back she is behind her.She literally walks behind varu and tries to imitate what ever varu does.This part is the best part of my life.
