Happy Birthday Darling Sons

Mamma & Dadda wish you both a very Happy Birthday!
My babies are growing too fast. Is it already time for the talk?
The proof is herewith.....

Moment after the stroke of 12 your first discussion with each other has been on body parts especially the private variety.
So says Ojas- no, Mamma ka lengu nahin hota hai. Mamma ka legs hota hai (err yes that's the story I gave them that Mamma & aunties and other venerable ladies have legs.
Tejas- Nahin, hota hai, toh Mamma susu kaise karega? (No, they do have else how will Mamma pee?)
Err with legs is what I said if you ask but ahem don't tell me its time already?

Don't grow so fast on me babies...

They are grown enough to know that Saturday 5.30 pm is the party
They are grown enough to ask me whose gift is this before tearing the wrapper open
They are doing homeworks on their own. No hand holding, no constant supervision.
They are playing on their own- they don't even need me to be with them
They eat on their own unless I want a quick job done
They color on their own
They know how to negotiate with each other and convince each other
They can argue out their case like their Dad

After 4 years of motherhood, have I grown?
1. Less of losing control
2. More of benign neglect- I am not obsessively keeping them in sight- but I still call out to check from time to time
3. More of the need to be with them- so very less of leaving them home and going out.
4. More comfortable taking them out with me- we did a solo park visit one day
5. More chilled out about missed meals and junk food

Cheers!
