at school

six year old's teacher says, she has stopped crying for everything. one day, the teacher told her that if she wants to be beautiful, she should not cry. that was the end of that. so, it seems.

going through four year old's work sheets. look ma, i do circles, he said, pride in voice and stance. it  asked to circle the letter A, and he had circled, very neatly, every alphabet there. ditto with circle the fruits. 

my artist boy and my beauty-conscious girl :)

his father's son. in and out.

her father's eyes. her mother's smile.

this stage is quite fun if you don't worry about marks and competition and stuff. every mother i meet at these meetings only have one thing to ask - how is the result? they are usually relieved once i tell them because my children don't get "full marks in all the subjects," which is the benchmark!
