Picture tag

I’d been tagged by Naperville mom & Renu eons ago to attach an image from the picture folder of my computer and share the story behind it.So with out any further dilly-dallying let me proceed. Terribly sorry for this delay,NM & Renu.

Since I spoke so much about the mounting expectations and pressures meted out to my child by me in my previous post I thought I would share these two snaps that I felt,befitted my current predicaments. So,enjoy!

I took the snaps for the sheer way Namnam held the newspaper as though she genuinely found an interesting article to read.This was taken in july last year.

Namnam was so engrossed in knowing what was happening around the world that she was oblivious to the fact that I was clicking her photos!


And then it was as though she suddenly realized that lying down and reading was not something that Amma professed.Hence the pose!


Now do you really blame me for being so paranoid about sending her to a school?C’mon she was the one who asked for it πŸ™‚ .

EDITED TO ADD : Oops!I forgot to pass on the tag as is the norm. So,A,Sakshi,Amrita,Goofy Mumma,IHM,Indyeah,Nancy,Piper,Sindhu,Ummon,VJ, please take up the tag and let me know when you have done it. If its a tag you’ve done before do send me the link. Would love to see what you had to share.

  5. What is the news she is reading? Barbie filed for divorce; Mickey fined for speeding; Spongebob faces serious charges for obscenity; Aladdin and Jasmine’s Honeymoon in Hawaii…..lol ok I am becoming a kid now after seeing her cute pics…never ever seen such a dedication to the daily newspaper….she is cute…


    1. LOL! I seriously doubt if she was reading about Barbie’s divorce…maybe the bit about the latest boyfriend who gifted her a rock of a diamond ring fascinated her more πŸ˜€ .

  10. She looks so sweet sitting with the paper like that. She’ll love school I can tell πŸ™‚

    thanks for the tag deeps….i can definitely do this soon :), unlike the previous one you tagged πŸ™‚


    1. Thanks! I tried to incorporate the blogspot header here too but couldn’t as the header-window here was too small to be attached in full.And a cropped image would not have looked nice.


  11. Oh that is so so cute!!! Namnam is such a cutie pie! She is looking so sweet – concentrating hard and pretending to read πŸ™‚ I have a similar pic of Poohi’s. She was trying to ape my dad reading a newspaper πŸ™‚

    Hugs and ummas to little Namnam!


    1. Awww sweet Poohi!I can imagine how adorable she would be looking in that pic
      hugs and ummas to her too πŸ™‚


  12. Lovely photo… I had a picture of my son doing the same at about 8 months… and we were so so gushing at that pic… so i can exactly understand what you might have felt… !!!


    1. Thank you,hitchwriter. Your son would have looked sooo cute posing liking that I can imagine.

      He sure is one adorable,sweet little kid. I could make that out from Abhi’s post on his b’day.
      Hugs to him from Namnam πŸ™‚


  13. Ooops!! This is a REALLY old tag and NM had tagged me too!! And I totallu forgot!

    D:Thanks a ton,sweety πŸ™‚ Looking forward to reading your story!


  18. Beautiful, natural looking photos! Real cuddly baby, she is! So she is Namnam…nice name, Deeps.

    I have written about my sons doing this, in my post about books. We, mothers still remember these small small things, even after sooo many years..like me!


    1. D: Thank you so much,Sandhya πŸ™‚ . You’re so right.We hold on to every minute detail of our children’s growing up,their histrionics,their achievements,so dearly that its imprinted in our hearts.And I’m sure even after many years down the line such memories would seem fresh in our minds.


  19. What can I say!! Namnam is taking care of her GK. The pictures are so cute and she looks as engrossed as only a little girl can. btw I loved the wooden sofa and its wrought iron work in the background. It looks very nice.

    D: Thank you so much,Sujata!I loved the wooden bench too the first time I saw it displayed in Home Center in Muscat and brought it home right away πŸ™‚


  20. no wonder, a kid can make a woman not just mom, but an author, poet, dreamer, a new being in fact …

    D: yes deeps,kids can really make us a better person πŸ™‚
