For the first time in my life I was worried that "inko meri hi nazar naa lag jaaye"
This time too I wanted us parents to be centre stage so that when the kids grow up they shouldn't feel bad that we never bothered to be part of cake cutting so instead of calling for the grandparents we took special care to cut the cake.
Now the first thing everyone and a blogger does is to look for photos of self after any photo session. To my utter pleasure I found lot of pictures of mine. Here I present the unedited ones and leave it to you (and the kids in future) to reconstruct me from these bits. So much for being part of the cakecutting and for wanting to be present in the same frame as the kids while the ceremony was going on...
I swear these are unedited, flattering pictures of mine taken on the occassion - yes the large object wearing white clothes, with a crop of curly hair looking always uncombed and the odd arm or hand interspersed in the pics is me... and don't blame me for blaming hubby for not being smitten enough of me and my new dress to click many pictures of mine. His only consolation offered to me is that so aren't there enough pictures of him but that's not the point is it?
Other Minor Details
1. I organised a treasure hunt for the older kids within the campus. That generated a lot of excitement among kids leading them to bunking their various classes like music/ karate etc that evening
2. The snacks were pre- packed in a box from the baker itself- sandwich/ cookies/ samosa/ chips.
3. Juice was prepared at home and dispensed
4. The clear hits were chips and juice. So if one is planning to have lot of kids and less of adults, it makes good common sense to have more of such items.
5. Take home favours were stuff like sketch pens, crayons, activity books
