A Junior, Memorable Moments, Photos

My reason to smile :)

I hadn’t planned on writing another one on A Jr so soon, but then sometimes some things happen that bring a broad smile on my face and I get this irresistible urge to pen them down asap and lock them in memory forever! Like this incident that happened yesterday.

I and A Jr were coming back home in an auto during peak traffic hours in the evening. I was getting anxious as reaching home late would disrupt my whole plan for the evening. Since A has a holiday today he was expecting me to treat him with some hatke home-made food (essentially with some mango in which ever form) which evidently needed some preparation, and watching Kahaani on dvd was certainly on cards. The endless red lights were slowing us down and increasing my impatience further.

Untouched and unfazed by any of these worries A Jr was his usual self, in full form, asking infinite questions, talking non-stop, and even advising the auto-driver on how he needs to regulate the speed of the auto. He was proudly wearing his Chhota Bheem t-shirt from his wide collection of character-tees.

It was when our auto halted at yet another red light that it happened. On our left was a lady on a scooter, carrying three girls (yes!), two in the back who looked like school girls and one in front who was around A Jr’s age. On our right was another auto that had one elder girl who looked like she must be in college, and again three young girls of A Jr’s age. (I’m sure when he grows up A Jr would love to be in such a position again! :P)

Now, a young girl from the auto in the right looked at A Jr and exclaimed very loudly, “ See, he’s wearing a Chhota Bheem t-shirt!”. What followed was hilarious, three pairs of eyes from the auto, and four pairs of eyes from the scooter on the left turned in our direction, all at once! Slightly taken aback by this sudden showering of attention on him by the opposite sex, A Jr looked at me shyly and said, “Why are those girls looking at me like this?”. The girls still won’t stop looking at him, so he blushed and blushed, like a beetroot. 😀 😀

This whole thing continued for some more time. The lady on the scooter, me and the elder girl from the auto, looked at each other and burst out laughing, once again all at once! What more, even the auto-driver joined us. I guess I should’ve felt guilty for having a hearty laugh at A Jr’s expense, but I just couldn’t help it. The boy regained his composure miraculously fast and retorted rather sweetly, “That girl doesn’t have my Chhota Bheem t-shirt, that’s why she was looking at me.” I’m sure he held on to it very tightly after that for fear of someone trying to take it away from him. 🙂

Needless to say, I forgot everything I was thinking about before that. No recipe came to my mind, I didn’t worry about how late we got or who was supposed to get the dvd. My boy had given me yet another reason to smile, making me wonder about just how much capable he is of doing that!! 🙂 🙂

P.S : I did prepare a mouth-watering dish for A. It was a desert created on a hunch but it turned out wonderfully! My FB friends have seen it already, and the ones who haven’t, here’s a glimpse of it. Enjoy! 🙂

Fruit cake served with mango pulp and topped with chocolate and dry fruits. My latest creation! 😀

  1. Children do have a way of lightening any situation and also a perfect perspective shorn of all unnecessary things. Enjoy! He will grow up sooner than you realise 🙂

    1. Yes…even now I feel he’s grown very fast! Yesterday I brought him home and he’ll be 4 very soon! Kids have a simple rule, they’re always able to see things in a brighter light, without any ifs and buts. Their way of looking at things makes any problem very simple. 🙂

    1. Oh yes. I was laughing like crazy making even little A very amused. 🙂
      You’ll be surprised at how much female attention he gets! He flutters his eyelashes and gives these really mischievous looks to girls. Have to keep an eye on him from now itself! 😀
      Thank you…the dish tasted very yummy too! 🙂

  2. i am sure he would love to be in a similar position when he grows up. but do you think a chhota bheem t-shirt will work for him?

    the desert looks brilliant!!!

    1. He’ll figure out something apt for his age and style when he grows up, like he did by choosing the Chhota Bheem t-shirt. He shops for himself mostly. (Unlike me. I’m still confused at times!) 😉 😀
      It tasted brilliant too Deb. Too bad I got only a tiny little bit of it. 🙁

  3. Hahaha… Chota Bheem is quite a rage, isn’t he? With the kind of delicious desserts you make, the world has a higher probability of seeing more Bheems. 😀

    1. Yes he is! Every time he appears on tv, no matter how many times he’s seen the episode before, A Jr just HAS to see it. He even practices his kicking and boxing! (hope he doesn’t use them on anyone :()
      Nopes…I’m incapable of creating Bheems! It’s once in a blue moon that I allow the calorie meter to go overboard. I make sure my recipes are tasty yet diet-worthy. 🙂

        1. Cooking works like therapy for me, and I love proving to people who like their food oily and buttery that I can make it taste just as good without the grease. 😛
          Yes, Bheem is known more for his strength, and I do try to ensure that A Jr is healthier and fitter, rather than fatter. 🙂

    1. I wrote a lot about my boy when he was younger. Haven’t written so much about my girl yet, sadly. I had completely forgotten about this. Thanks to you I read it again. ????????????

Liked what you read? Tell me. Thanks!
