Talking about death!!

Have you ever been questioned by your preschooler about death? Have you ever been in a situation where you find yourself searching for answers?

It happened nearly 4 months ago. Since Liya is now familiar with many of our extended family members and relatives she is inquisitive on researching more. She was learning from J about "who is whose parents" and their conversation went on. She asked who is my momma and my pappa and who is J's momma and his pappa. He answered gently.

The Reconciler

Just after we landed in Bangalore, J was looking for new SIM card for both of our phones. Unfortunately, you can not use the SIM cards across states in India, without roaming charges. So, every time you move across the country, you are more likely to get a new number!

Of course I wanted a fancy number. He has been behind many vendors and did not come across any good numbers. Finally, he got two SIM cards. Both the numbers were same except for a single digit.

Somehow, I did not like the number. I did not feel that the numbers are easy to remember. It's not easy to get a fancy number in a country where 1.2 plus billion people live... lol!

I was whining on having to go with such "not so fancy" number. L was watching all these discussions and finally jumped into my lap and said..

"Momma, look his number is having 8 and yours too having. So, it's a good number.."

I had to just stop whining and laugh aloud!

Finally, the Reconciler won, I am living with the same number!

We hit 4!

Yes, we have entered fabulous four! Just can't believe!!! It's been four years since our little bundle of joy came to our life. Never in my life I thought that four years is a short time. But, today I did!

Last year, though it's been one of the wonderful years of our parenthood with tremendous changes in L, so many changes in our life, I am sad that I was not able to record them. So, looking back to L's past year, let me recall some best milestones.
