100 Happy Days: Day 100!!

Moments that make me feel on top of the world:

a. We watch a cooking show where the participants made silly mistakes and Sam tells his dad “Appaaaaa, Amma cooks so delicious, she should go and participate in this show, she will definitely win!”

b. A friend sang on stage recently at a concert and shared a video that we all watched. Today morning I was singing along with the radio to a favourite song and Sam who was eating breakfast, says ” Amma, see you sing so well, your voice sounds just like that singer on radio, next time you should also sing on stage.”

c. He came home and was discussing something about snakes having scales on their bodies and I happened to use the same terms that his teacher had used in class. “Amma, how do you know everything? You actually know everything, you should be a professional”. I said “I am an IT professional”. So he says “Noooo amma, you should teach, you should be a professor.”

After 3 such back to back conversations since last night, how can I not be on cloud 9? We are in the “Mommy knows everything” stage which I am cherishing, in a few years when we get to “Duh! Mom doesn’t know anything” stage, I will have something to come back to and remember 😀

If this is not happy moments, then what is? I realized I didn’t know what miracle I was waiting for, to end this 100 days blogathon but I couldn’t have asked for better moments than these. Wasn’t this the whole idea of the 100 happy days? To cherish and remember the simple everyday moments that made us smile?

100 Happy Days: Day 99

Yesterday, to celebrate mothers, there was an event organized by the ladies for the ladies in the community. There were 350 women in all and it was a grand event in every sense. Women dress for other women is so true. There was a sense of “this is just us ladies and we can let our hair down” atmosphere, though the cynic in me recognised that there would be gossip and judgements later. I also realised that I have changed so much. I used to be uncomfortable among only ladies before. I never liked the topics of discussion. But now, I can hold my own conversation without zoning out!

It was a fun evening with dinner, drinks and dancing. I guess after coming to this country, I never had an evening out with friends and no husband and kid. Its May and we don’t know what life has in store for us in the coming few months, but once again we have finally made friends and are getting comfortable in the community.

100 Happy Days: Day 98

I had a good day today. Took the car out by myself for some ‘me time’. Went out at 11am and got home by 3.30pm. Just some window shopping and when I got hungry, bought a sandwich and a frappuchino, sat at the table and ate by myself. I realised then, that I have never done that – eat by myself, ever! So both the driving and the eating by myself are both small personal tick marks for me 😎
