Five years.

Who would have thought? I love you my dear blog. Happy Birthday!

That reminds me, when Ashu was a baby all I wanted to know was how will Ashu look like when she is 5. How will her voice be? What will her interests be? Who will her friends be? It was such a giddy feeling. Sigh! Good times. All I want to know now is when will the girls go to sleep! Ha ha ha! (Just kidding, Dad!)

Did I tell you Ashu is riding her bicycle without the training wheels? The big milestone happened last Sunday when Hd removed the training wheels and took Ashu down to teach her to ride. I gave him all sort of gyaan and told him that it will be great if Ashu can learn to ride by end of this year. Ha! 15 minutes later, he calls me and asks me to look out of the balcony. And whaddayaknow? Ashu is riding the bike on her own! This man does nt have to sweat for anything in his life, I tell you! Anyway, yay! I was so proud at the moment. Lets just say that I could totally relate to how Neil Armstrong's parents would have felt when he landed on the moon. (Or at the photo studio if thats what you believe! ;)

congrats on the 5 boo... ha wat a coincidence even M took off the training wheels for Adi last sunday but I requested him to keep it on for a while quoting that I learnt to ride only when I was 10.... may be we should try sooner (before the winter). thx for that update... it is sure a big milestone

Hi Boo,

Happy anniversary....
Its a pleasure reading your blog.
My favorite one is how you and your sister surprised your dad on his retirement day. every time I read it there is a lump in my throat and a very happy feeling too!


I am your great fan and my dream is to talk with you one day.

congrats to Ashu too...

You fooled me with the title. I was wondering if its already been a year since we read about Ashu's rainbow themed bday party :-) Super duper wishes on the bloggy bday.

And hi-fi Ashu!
