Thursday Treats – Crocheted Turtle Bag
My kids are fan of ‘Sammy’s Adventures‘, and ‘ A Turtle’s Tale‘. Specially, Otu, my two year old boy. Every time of day, he is just interested in playing with a baby turtle toy. 🙄
So, this one is specially for him.
- Do you know that a Turtle’s shell is called ‘carapace’, but they also have a lower shell called ‘plastron‘?
- Do you know that Turtles have existed for around 215 million years? Phew!!!
- Do you know that Turtles don’t have Ears, but for sure they can hear?
- Do you know that just like us, Turtles also have their favorite colors?
Enough Turtle tattle, now I would like to revisit, ‘A Turtle’s Tale‘. I love Baby Turtles too. 😀
Thursday Treats – Crocheted Crown for My Prince and Princess
Do you know that there are 25 windows in the Statue of Liberty Crown?
Do you know that in ancient Egypt, Royal women used to wear the Royal Vulture crown, having a falcon with wings folded?
Do you know that Gold Crown that Queen Elizabeth donned during her coronation in 1953, does not belong to her, but rather was a property of state?
Do you know that the oldest Christian crown in Europe is probably the Iron Crown of Lombardy?
Now I want a Crown too…. Who doesn’t want to be a Queen, unless you are a Queen in Game Of Thrones 😛
Frolic Friday – Kids Are Smart Enough To Fool Me
We wait to hear our kids speak, and everytime they do, they mesmerize us with their innocent words. But just wait till they are smart enough to manipulate you with their cute looks and smart words. 😛
Two days back when my hubby was trying to make kids sleep, Renne was not in the mood to give up easily. He was looking for every reason or shall I say, every distraction, for not sleeping.
Renne: I want a Pillow.
Before you read further, try to say “I want a Pillow”, the way a two year old will say, just five times faster. Yeah, that’s how Renne speak. He do everything fast. Runs faster, eats faster and speaks much more faster.
So, instead of hearing “I want a Pillow”, you will hear “I wn plw”. :O I know it’s not much understandable. And yes, I can make sense of it. Occasionally though. 😛
Coming Back to our post.
Renne: I want a Pillow. (screaming at least 10 times, in one breath)
Papa: What? What do you want? (point to note, he didn’t understand Renne, no matter how much he will deny this fact after reading my post)
Renne: Pillow. I want Pillow.
Papa: I can’t understand you. What do you want?
Renne irritated, showing anger to his Papa.
Papa: Tisha, what does he want? I can’t understand him. (asking help from our three year old daughter Tisha)
Tisha: He wants Pillow, Papa. (Laughing at Papa… lol) 😀
Papa: Oh My God. Thank You Tisha. What will I do without you. (hands over a pillow to Renne. Matter resolved) 🙂
Now, this is not the real story, and if you are wondering what I was doing this whole time? I was pretending to sleep. So mean, right? 😀
Next day, when I was relaxing in my balcony, with a cold coffee, and a book to read, Renne took it to himself for disturbing my peace and quiet time.
Renne: Mamma, I want Jacket.
I understood him completely, but I was in no mood to leave my comfortable chair and ice cold coffee, to go get a jacket. Even more, because it was so hot, what would he want a jacket for? So, I said….
Me: What? I can’t understand you.
Renne: I want jacket, mamma.
Me: I am not able to understand you, Renne. What do you want?
Renne: Jacket. I want a Jacket. (shouting now)
Me: Go play baby. I can not understand you.
Me: Tisha, what is Renne saying? I am not able to understand him. (just to distract him)
Renne, looked over at Tisha, with his desperate looking eyes, as if asking for help.
Tisha: Hmm…. (a long pause after thinking a lot), Chocolate.
Me: WHAT? (surprised)
Tisha: Mamma, Renne wants chocolate.
Renne: Yes Mamma. I want Chocolate. 😀
All three kids shouting now, in unity. We Want Chocolate.
We Want CHOCOLATE. We Want CHOCOLATE. 😛
Lucky Are Those Who Have Twins
I am Lucky. In every phase of my life, I have felt that way. God has given me everything more than what I have ever expected (rather deserved). There are so many things which make me feel blessed, one, or should I say two of the reasons are my twin boys, Otu and Renne.
I do not come from the family of twins, but I always wished to have twins, that too, preferably non identical. Two different personalities, just growing together. Not only me, my hubby too, used to say to me, how good it would be if we will get twin babies. We were so obsessed by twins, that when we went for ultrasound, for the very first time, we bluntly asked the technician, “Is it Twins?”. She also responded in the same blunt way, “No”. We the stubborn one, asked “Can you check again, Please? :)”
LOL…. at that time, we didn’t knew that, Tisha, our first born, has already made a setting with God, to send her two little twin brothers, only after she has amply enjoyed the full love and attention of her parents, for some time. She did enjoyed a lot of attention back then, still does, being the only Princess of her Papa’s heart (now, her brother’s heart too).
It didn’t take long for our Twins blessing to reach us. This time, our ultrasound technician, smiled and said “I don’t know if this will help you or not, but this time, you have Twins.”
Then their were Heartbeats, two of them, running strong, so fast and loud, and there we were, all laughing, giggling and with teary eyes. Rejoicing the moment, as we got what we asked and then nearly forgot about it, but someone up there who always keeps track of our wishes, delivered.
Every mother will say, that first pregnancy is special; for me, my first was special because it was The First, and second became more special because of my twin boys. If you are lucky enough to experience motherhood of twin babies, then you will agree, that there is never a dull and quiet moment, when you are pregnant with twins.
One is sleeping, other is awake, one is pushing, other is kicking. Oh… I loved that. It was a special feeling to be aware of two individuals nurturing inside you. I could actually feel them, fighting with each other, pushing each other, trying to poke my tummy with their feet, sometimes. My Renne used to be a full time boxer in their. He still is.
Even our ultrasound time was fun. Once we saw them kicking and hitting each other with their legs, as if they were playing around in their very own personal playground. From our ultrasound tests, we always used to come out crying and laughing at the same time.
Most of the women say to me, how do you handle three kids, specially twins? How did you managed twins? Every time, I recall that first moment when I heard their heartbeats, two different heartbeats. Then I try to recall, when did I feel overwhelmed by having twins? I didn’t. Never.
They were and are, always a blessing and I will tell this to everyone, don’t ever feel that twins can be a burden, they are fun, lots and lots of. Actually double the fun. I loved the time, when I was pregnant with them, and I love it now, when I saw them running around me, fighting, playing, doing every possible crazy thing possible, and then giving me their precious wickedly cute smile. Two different heartbeats, two different individuals, united in so many ways still very different, My Otu and My Renne 🙂
