Life in plastic, its fantastic...


So Ashu had a class party on 27th. Where she took a cake, showed her baby and age 1,2,3 photos to her friends, went around the sun 4 times,.. the usual routine. Then this Monday, Ashu and her best friend had a birthday party together in an indoor play park for their class friends. G's birthday is next week and her mom suggested we do a double party and I was all game. The kids had a blast and us moms did nt have to do anything other than show up. The dads paid. Win-win, huh? ;) Ashus first birthday where she actually showed interest in her gifts and went all ga-ga over them when we opened them later at home. Even though I have nt bought a barbie for her yet and the 2 barbies she got as gifts earlier, I hid them and gave them away to some other kids, this time I could nt bring myself to do it. She got a couple of barbies and my little ponies among other gifts. Poor girl did nt know it was called Barbie and told me, Look amma. this is princessaa. So I started calling the wretched doll Princessaa too. Until today that is. In the evening she came to me and asked,
"Can we please take the Barbie out of the box today, Amma?"
"Barbie? Who told you this is Barbie?"
"It says so in the box, Amma. Look this. B-A-R-B-I-E. Baarbee! "

What the...!

Aw come on! I was a major fan (still am) and it never did me any harm. Barbies are great fun if you are interested in clothes and teeny things.

Ashu is a smart girl. She can read and let her Mommy know the right name. That is very sweet.

Wow! you did hide the Barbie..I have hidden them too. I think I shall unveil in a couple of years. But for now Barbie shall rest in peace :)

It is so much fun to have multiple B'day parties at least from a kid's perspective. I remember we had two one Star b'day and English B'day. Star B'day for Payasam, new dress and blessings. English B'day for cards,chocolate for school, new dress and gifts.

Barbies are the all time favourites for baby girls.. I wish all taata paties give the same gift to their grand children. how many barbies are there with the princess now?!
