Every time we walk out of a play ground, library or any place, this firecracker boy would have made a bunch of friends (he’s really good at it, sometimes I sit and marvel the way he gets all the kids together and play). Later on when he talks about a kid he met he says “my brand new best friend”, “my friend with a unicorn bag”, “my friend at the park who loves Spider-Man“ and so on.

Recently Istarted noticing that Agu has never mentioned a kid with their physical appearance like the “fair kid” or “short kid” or “fat kid”. He is 5 years old, watches a lot of movies and documentaries with us, we talk openly about everything and eventually I have realized it is better to keep them informed, expose them to a lot of scenarios than bringing them up in a protective virtual world, but it still amazed me how someones appearance is of least importance for a kid.
I am sure things will change as he grows up, he will learn about how this world differentiates people based on a thousand irrelevant th…

Agu boy got his certificate from school saying “now I can zip my own jacket”.

Now we only have to get him dressed 30 minutes earlier than usual so he can practice his skills on zipping up his jacket without getting late to anywhere we go🤷🏻‍♀️
All set for the season of fun, frolic, giggles and gifts!❤️

So this year we decided to keep an elf on the shelf, hoping we will have a well behaved child in the house until Christmas. We discussed it with Agu.

Us: So this elf is going to watch you and if you act naughty he is going to tell Santa about it and your Christmas gift will depend on what Santa decides!
Agu: Hahahaa, silly Papa silly Mama, that’s not real, it cannot talk
Us: It’s not real but itcan talk to Santa!
Agu: You are pretending right?
Us: No baby, elf will watch you till Christmas
Agu: *smirks at our silly Elf theory and walks away*
.
.
*after 3 minutes, when we weren’t around, we overhear his conversation with Elf*🙈

Agu: Hi Elf, how are you? High five Elf!
Agu*mimicking elf voice”: You are a very sweet boy, I will ask Santa to get the biggest toy for you for Christmas
Agu: Thank you Elf❤️

Us: Baby you are 5 years old today!!!
Agu: “I am 5 years old because I ate my birthday cake???”
(After a pause)
“I will miss being a four and a half year old”

Our big bundle of love, joy and mischief turned five today.
He definitely has very high expectations of what a 5 year old can do, anything close to even riding a submarine🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
