Today I enjoyed the very best breakfast I have ever had – prepared by my son, 12 year old Bablu. Yesterday night before I went to bed my 12 year old son, Jyotiraditya aka., Bablu, made me promise that after 7.30 am the next morning, I would stay away from the kitchen area. I wasn’t very sure why and he wouldn’t tell me so I agreed. This morning I was unceremoniously evicted from my study area near the kitchen and dumped…
My son, Jyotiraditya Satpathy is now 11. I found this photo of him from 10 years ago 🙂
After a hectic 4 days in Mumbai – doctor visits, household stuff, bank related etc.. – I am returning to Vadodara and work. But this time Jyotiraditya – Bablu – is coming with me to spend a week before his school reopens next week. We have planned each day. And I am declining all meetings after 5.30 pm 🙂 I hope we have a great father – son week.
Jyotiraditya, our 9 year old son, participated in a “Special Assembly” at his school today. The teachers and students of R. N. Podar school pick a topic, script it, practice and present the script in front of parents who are invited to attend. Today’s topic was “Anger”. Very nicely done, with great scripting and a fantastic performance from the children. The teachers design the program such that each and every child gets to play a part, however small. The choreography…
My son and I have started painting with water colors. We decided to do one each evening for the remainder of the summer vacation, baring days when I am traveling. I will post our results here 🙂
This is Bablu’s second big Mechano project and he built most of it himself. With some help from me and his grandfather last week.
We realized Bablu required spectacles in Nov 2009, when he was 5 and a half years old. We took him to Dr. Bansal at Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, and he selected the frame after the good doctor prescribed glasses. I picked up the new spectacles 2 days later when returning from work. These photos show him wearing his new spectacles for the first time and trying not to show how pleased he is 🙂 while his big sister looks on.
<div class=”wp-caption alignnone” style=”width: 650px” Old Battle Tank at Rakshak Chowk, Poona Bablu loves Tanks. I had promised to stop by the old Battle Tanks at Rakshak Chowk on the way back from lunch and reminded me of the promise as we neared the chowk. Well he got his up close view of the battle tank 🙂 Posted with WordPress for BlackBerry.
Bablu lost his firrst milk tooth today! It was loose and he already had a tooth growing behind it. I had promised to take it off if he would loosen it. He asked me to take a hand as the loose tooth was bothering him. He was rather apprehensive about the ordeal I was about to put him through but put up a brave front 🙂 I used a soft handkerchief to pull the tooth out. It was hanging on…
