Kabir started kindergarten in October after his grandparents went back to India. We completed two weeks of school and then we went to Disney World and it was indeed magical. Arjun (21 month old) can’t talk much but he has learnt to recognize and say “Mickey”. The trip was really worth it even though it was super-exhausting by the end.
Then we came back and we have finally completed two more weeks of school.
Last Saturday, Kabir and his dad went for a night camp in Memphis zoo. They had a great time. The highlights were patting a python, going on a safari in dark, watching Finding Nemo and eating popcorn and lemonade before bedtime. They camped in a cozy room in the zoo and not outdoors!
On Wednesday, we had a Roman party at home. We were reading about Ancient Romans. So, I took a pillow cover and made a tunic for Kabir. He enjoyed wearing it. Then I, the slave, served him (rich Roman) three-course Roman meal. He chose to be a rich Roman because poor Romans only ate bread and porridge. He ate all the food while lying down as the ancient Romans do. In the end, he said, “Mama, my tummy hurts because I am lying down while eating but I am still going to finish my dinner like this.” Arjun looked really puzzled at his brother and was itching to get out of his high-chair. Then, Kabir tried to burp as he wanted to be a polite Roman but he apologized as he couldn’t. He enjoyed it when I brought him a bowl of water to wash his hands. It was really fun. Roman bread pudding was the best part. It is bread soaked in milk and then fried and served with honey. Arjun loved it too!
Now, we are getting ready for Thanksgiving. The cousins are coming over and Kabir is super excited with all the plans and ideas for them.
Time is indeed flying away…
