This year we decided to celebrate Ruby’s birthday differently . As a rule we celebrate two birthdays .
As Pearl puts it one is the cake Birthday following the English month when they take sweets to the school and all , cut cakes Western style . The other is the Payasam Birthday when we go to temple . Make traditional foods . This is the birthday more or less their Grand parents celebrate .
This year instead of partying with his friends we went to Oberon mall . One of their favourite hang outs … Now a days kids wanna celebrate their Birthdays the funky way !
And we had a great time there . Video games and sorts aren’t my things . May be because I don’t score good . It is their father who gives them company . And yesterday it was so crowded I didn’t even care to take a snap.
What attracts me to Oberon Mall is the Reliance’s book shop they have there . I think I have become a maniac. The only thing I wanted to buy was the Amarchithra Katha series ! ( But it fills my heart with joy when I see Ruby reading it all through the night )
And we tried food from almost every counter in the food court . Any way a Pizza is enough to knock out Ruby !
It is very easy to please Ruby. But it is not the case with Pearl . Every day she prepares for her birthday like it is the next day .
Ruby got a pair of roller skates as his present . Of course Pearl also gets one . We don’t dare to come home without a present for her .
In the morning they are busy counting and recounting and distributing the sweets !
Pearl wants some extra chocolates for her friends becoz she couldn’t give them enough on her birthday last year as she had to give some to Ruby then !!!!!
I want to video tape all of it as I know Childhood is just slipping by .
With Ruby’s Birthday I celebrate my Motherhood and with Pearl’s birthday I celebrate my childhood and teens !
