You started your formal schooling now from June 6th. Your teacher says you are very independent and has settled very well in the class. Kartik and Samantha are your friends.

You started schooling late very unlike other kids, who starts schooling at the age of 2. We all including you are very happy that you were around us all the time, specially me. You were my shadow, you had so many real life experiences with me that you became very independent and expressive.

You are very sharp, we believe you will get school as a great platform to perform. Reet always remember you are our star in the family. We all love you so much specially your brother. He may not express his feeling verbally to you, but i see him being very protective and supportive to you all the time. I want you to remember this always and would like you to look up to him for anything.

This year is special for both of your schooling, you started school and your brother will change his school from Pathashaala to Kodaikanal international school.

Madras 20 - Can we do this together?

My darling Reet,

This post is for you, for me to remember always your beautiful, mature and smart way of expressing yourself. Yes, the way you express yourself it’s very hard to believe that a four-year-old is talking. 

You are a beautiful soul, your dialogues with me are something very beautiful I will like to cherish always with me.

Today at the age of four you talk with a complete sense and can impress anyone with your vocabulary and little cute talks. You are fearless in talking and approaching to anyone.
I have been writing down few of your dialogues with me and today I am compiling all of them here for both of us to cherish. These are all your words from two words to first complete sentences.

When you first started talking, you will express in three words with translation like  Pani water pani… At the age of two you were talking in two words like

Mumma Chaihiyee
Puglendi Chahiyee
Pani Chaiyee… 

At the age of three you were talking in complete sentences
I do not like to sit in a car seat
Papa gadi chala rahe hain

I cannot take scooter
Mujhe nahi para chappal

These are few of the dialogues, you are an amazing child with so many talent and gifts inside you, I wish that you always stay the same independent and clear in your mind. I love your way of expression and will and my favourite one will always be when you say Ya Swatantra ..Oh my GOD !! The firmness in your tone makes me fall in love with you over and over again.

Madras 19 - I am four Cinderella!!

Dear Reet 

You have turned four, it is a very special number and a special day for us. You have made us four by coming into our life. You have a very beautiful soul and little bundle of cuteness ( As your brother calls you). You are the the one who binds us all together in one thread and makes life more beautiful with your cuteness, distinctiveness and innate character. 

I have never met a child who is so mature and beautiful in same way. At the age of four you expresses yourself so beautiful. You love to play with Atta and make cookies, pizza from same. You will come to us and presents us in a very beautiful way that we cannot stop falling in love with you more and more.... You love your children because they belong to you, but then there are children you love them more and more on their character... on their small little things they express you with their innocence. You are much beyond than your innocence my child, you always know what you are doing and only do things which you like the most. If you do not like anything, no one can make you convince to do same. I love your conviction in you and your thoughts. 

Another beautiful quality in you, that If you like something in someone you include that in you. In this way you are my true reflection and my anchor. You have picked your accent from our dutch friend Marleen. From your cupcakes video you have learned how to present things so well. Even when you play with your toys, you give a introduction of what you are going to do. And I love the way you say " Hey Guys" 

On playing, you don't like to play with regular toys. You love to make your own games from the same. Like with Coco Crazy, you love to put monkeys on your fingers, with railroad you love to reorganise same. You start making puzzles but then you get bored from same. 

I cannot believe that its been only four years that you came into our life, with you its look like you were always there with us and we were never alone. 

You don't like if I scold or suggest anything to Siddharth, you will first hear what I say to him and then you will tell me.. Mom don't say this to Siddharth Virjee he doesn't like it.  You can control everyone in the house with your cuteness and we all will agree without any hesitation. 

I have never taught you anything and you have learned all the color name on your own. You know about the names of all the princess and I love the way you take care of your things. 

You don't let me dress you anymore and love to dress yourself . You have learned a very unique way of making sari from my scrafs, and your passion for nail polish is known to all my friends. When we visit them, the first thing you ask them is to put nail polish on your nails. You don't like any clips in your hair, and love to leave them like this. Sometimes you like to put hairband but no so regular. I miss this part with you, as I want to comb your hair and make ponytails. 

You love to put flower in your hair and can approach any women in Madras and woo her with your cuteness and get flowers from her. You have a very unique way of putting flower and you don't like it any other way. 

When we visited Disneyland in Dec, you only wanted to go and meet Cinderella, and we were astonshied when you asked her to dance for you and she danced.. Those were the moments I wanted time to stop and wished that we stay frozen in that moment. 

On your forth birthday, we made a cake of Cinderella for you, and it was so beautiful that even you do not wanted to cut same... Here is you our Cinderella with your Cinderella... 

I wish you a very happy birthday my chote sai and pray to God that you remain same as you are today, so pure and beautiful!! Amen! And I thank Divine for a little bundle of cuteness in our life!!
