A bliss till yesterday is a dream today

My son's schedule.

10a.m: Wake up.

10:30a.m: ajji (my mom) would make him drink milk & take him to playground
11a.m: Come back from playground. atthe(my mom-in-law) would bathe him. He used to perform prayers & recite some shlokas.

11:30a.m: Ajja (my father) would feed him breakfast.

12:15p.m: Thatha (my father-in-law) would somehow make him drink 1 glass of water.

12:30p.m: Play with all 4 of them.

2:00p.m: Delicious & steaming hot Udupi oota/Chikmagalur oota prepared by atthe/ajji. Ajja would feed him lunch, while thatha managed to play his favorite Kannada rhymes CD(undagi gunda.., ache mane subbamma etc).

3:00p.m: Ajji would make him drink a bottle of milk & put him for an afternoon nap. Ajji’s devaranama is a must for him to go to bed :D

5:30p.m: Wake up. Get bathed from atthe, and drink milk from ajji. Go to playground with either ajja or thatha.

6:30p.m: All 6 elders & he parading in the city streets.

10p.m: Back home, dinner fed by ajja, rhymes played by thatha.

11p.m: Play with all.

12midnight: Go back to sleep with amma(me).

What a bliss!!!

Yesterday, when they departed, he was weeping & was not letting anybody go. Same was the case with the two grandma’s. After coming back from airport, he searched his grandparents in kitchen & all the bedrooms. He became cranky & started missing them. Our state is also the same, just the difference being.., he is expressing his feelings.., WE ARE NOT!!!


  1. sad. If you guys are feeling so bad imagine the grandparents.

  2. Oh! That is so sad.. It just seems like yesterday that you were glad to have your folks around. I am sure your son is missing them.. What a price to pay right?
