Happy Children's Day!




Things I like about childhood
1. The smell of winter
2. Being short enough to crawl into tiny spaces and get out of really low railings.
3. Fighting about who is my best friend and why they should not talk to other people
4. The new clothes and the memories of festivals.
5. My grandmother used to read out stories from the scripture to us.

Things that make me feel happy about being an adult
1. School Uniforms.
2. Homework
3. Fighting about who is best friend and why they should not talk to other people
4. Not being able to decide on anything I wanted – no clothes(no money at home) , not my favorite toys, nothing.
5. Being made to drink milk.

Chiya said...

BTW, tried sending another mail to you and eesha both. did u get that?

How do we know said...

hi Chiya: Yep, got your mail. That makes it 4 mails to be sent to the 4 people who have expressed interest in Esha. Or maybe, I will just take Zoe's advice and put a post soon.
No i dont feel the same any more.
