Back to School.

After the really long break, Ashu is going to school without a fuss. There! I thought I would never utter that statement in my life! Before the US trip, she used to cry even after a 3 day break. So I was really worried how shes going to cope after the 6 weeks vacation especially after having so much fun being with her grand parents, uncle and aunt. I was talking about school, her teachers and friends all the time during the vacation and made sure she did nt forget anything. But then, I really wonder how much what we do and say matters. I suspect that these kids have made up their minds about EVERYTHING even while in the womb and are only playing along as if its all in the parenting! Parents like lawyers only exist to find loop holes in the already sound system and make things worse! Ok, enough gyaan for the day.
Anyway, I was almost in tears on Monday expecting the worse when I went to drop her at school. But of course, she went into her classroom excitedly, said bye to me and held hands with Miss.M. I came out disbelieving my own eyes. She chattered non stop when I picked her up about all the things she did in school. Miss M even said that she mentioned Pinocchio in class. Well, whatddayaknow?! The whole week was perfect. Due to the jet lag, she was getting up very late in the morning and so she was nt sleepy in the afternoons while going to school. That really helped. But shes back to her usual routine now and lets see how this week goes. One can never take anything for granted especially when one is a parent, is it not?

Agreed on your last comment :)
Ashu looks amazing in the pic. Are you able to maintain her long hair? The minute my daughter's hair comes till her eyes, I keep feeling she is uncomfortable (I am not sure how she feels about it tough) and cut it off :)

She must have been eager to tell her friends about her trip and all the stories, just like her mom ;-)

She is soooo cute in that outfit, sweater and shoes Boo and with that cute hair and smile. Very smart little lady.

Totally agree on ur gyaan. Kids have an agenda of their own and we parents are the deluded ones hollering out instructions like Hitler every few minutes.

Poppin has the same dress as Ashu (the pinafore kind of thing) in the same colour ! Amazing.

She looks maha cute and I'm happy that she's going to school without a fuss. I'm already dreading June here, when Poppin restarts school :)
