Wednesday is now,the busiest day of the week for me. Aadi has ballet after school and I signed up for a Pilates class,that started tonight. After dropping,Aadi at school,we came back tidied up and then,a friend came over with her son.
I have to tell you about this friend-its funny how we met..One day,I was driving,taking the girls to the library or the town center,and as I turned around the corner,I saw a couple standing there.The woman looked up and our eyes met..We smiled and waved to each other.
And immediately,Aadya,the chatterbox,asked me if I knew the lady..I said no..’Then why did you wave ?’,she asked..I said,’I don’t know I had to’..that was the end of discussion.
Anyway,a few weeks later,a friend invited us over for a cup of tea and there were some other mums there as well and I got talking to one of them.She had a son,the same age as Ananya and it turned out,he was born a day before Anaan! That was awesome..we decided to catch up again..and found out that we lived quite near each other and THEN,figured out that we had waved to each other,a few days back!
This was about one year back..now she is one of my closest friends..and her little boy is Anaan’s special friend-she loves him to bits,but more than him,she loves his mummy.Today,she was taking a nap,when they came over.When she woke up,she stumbled over to L,instead of me.. yup…that’s how much she loves her:)
We often joke,that we know each other from some past life..specially Anaan n her-there is no other way to explain their relationship.She warmed up to L,almost instantly from the moment they laid eyes on each other 🙂
So,coming back to today,after L and J,her
baby boy toddler left,we loaded the slow cooker with some chick-pea curry and left for school pick up..came home,changed,went to ballet,went for grocery shopping.Note to self: Avoid taking Aadi to grocery stores.There are too many temptations for her.
We had just walked inside and I was still bringing the groceries inside,when Ananya started throwing up and the sweet child decided to clean it,with her bare hands..yeah..not very nice…I cleaned her,cleaned the carpet and the phone rang-it was my bestie,asking to Skype. And we did..
Half an hour later,SD walked in and we stopped chatting.Then it was time for the kids’ baths and dinner. I served them dinner and had to leave for my class. It was my first time,doing Pilates in a group,where I didn’t know anyone..I was a beginner.I was a little nervous.But,I had fun,despite the pain. L.o.v.e.d the whole 60 minutes of it.I am pretty sure,I won’t say the same thing tomorrow,when I can’t move. LOL!
And with that..I will take your leave.. The abs are beginning to feel a little sore.. I am off to bed..more later..
