Sachin and I have become very busy (even before Radhika came back) starting with the preparations for mommy’s return, then the actual surprise party and then enjoying the time with mommy. Radhika is back now and Sachin and I are sooooooooo happy that […]

Sachin and  I are eagerly looking forward to Radhika’s return back here. We carried out our routine normally and then went to McDonalds for dinner. Sachin and I had a big debate on what ‘Reading Time’ means.  While I said it stands for ‘Sachin will read his book and daddy will read his book’, Sachin […]

Sachin and I had a good time on Day 14 of our ’18 days without Radhika’. I managed to get out of work by 5pm and picked him up at 5.30pm. He was quite happy when I told him that I was early today. He has always asked me to come early, but I could […]

Sachin and I had one of the most difficult days so far, during this 18 days experience. He came home after school and was quite impatient – so i realized he must be hungry and gave him some snacks. He immediately wanted to watch TV during his game time. I let him do that while […]

Day 12 was the most interesting day so far from a ‘learning experience’ standpoint after Radhika went to India. We had a regular working day and at the end of it, we came home and started doing our usual routine. Since Sachin completes some of his home work at after care, I review it at […]

Sachin and I started our Sunday with the day light saving into effect. I had a tough time trying to explain the concept to him and gave it up for now – will try again in a year or two. I did some of the laundry work today at home and realized how much of […]

I cant believe this. Sachin woke up at around 8 am and the first words were ‘Im boss’. I think he loves that sense of control so much that he started the day with it. I made world’s largest pancake again beating my own world record set last week. One of the ‘tha’ friends (V…tha) […]

Sachin and I had a routine morning. We went to the Indian store in the evening and he got very angry when I mentioned to him that we were going there. He then explained that it would take a long, long, long, long time and will cut down his other plans for the evening (read […]

It is wednesday and Sachin and I started the day talking about what bionicle we are going to get in the evening..remember it is Wednesday. I was also thinking of Gresh, a bionicle that Sachin did not have and was looking forward to getting the good guy, Gresh and playing a game with Sachin as […]
