No power.

Mommy had way too much time in her hands today. And way too much hair clips. And Ashu had a little patience! The result, these mug shots:


There was a power cut the whole day today. So no internet for Mommy and no cartoon for Ashu. I mean, what can one do when theres no power the whole day? My mom is sick and Ashu is sick too. So no cooking either. They both had curd rice and I had toast! So it was a 2 mins affair. Ashu of course has dysentry, her best friend who never fails to visit her when shes sick! So my mom and I were running to the bathroom every 30 mins with Ashu. In spite of this busy schedule I got bored by the evening. I started asking aloud "Ashu, when will the power come back" a dozen times just like I used to ask HD and annoy him. Ashu started playing with the remote and pointed the TV and asked me "Noddy?" Yes I know, me bad mother! Too much of Noddy is good for nobody! (Hey, I just made that up and it rhymes!) The house got darker and darker towards evening and we could nt even read a book. So out came the hair clips to keep my baby busy for a while. My mom thought the same about her baby too, I guess! So we both played around for sometime. But of course I had to take pictures. And blog about it now that the power has come back. :)

Hi,

This is my first visit.Excellent posting,i spend almost1hour and watched all the blogs.

Ashu looks cute, amazing collection of photos right from the baby shower function.
After viewing all the photos, i felt that i have seen her from the day 1,it gave me this sort of thought.

Thanks all of you for the sweet comments!

Ganga - Thank you for the link.

Aqua - Ashu hates it when I wash her hair and brush it. But missy is ok with hair clips. Thats because she can take them off one by one by herself! ;) Ya, I am very much in Blore, no sign of the visa yet! :(
