All about my darling!

As i was going through my posts today i realised that the posts i most enjoyed writing about
were about my daughter Tanya. There is something about the way kids grow that makes you want to cry and laugh at the same time.
I miss her early years. But entertainment never stops ;)

She has now started telling us stories. Her own stories.
Her stories are never complete without a dinosaur and a monkey. (Aliens are a new addition thanks to Ben 10) We'll pop up here and there of course. One thing that surprised me the most was that she is not always the heroine of her stories. You would think that a 3 year old will like that very much. But she doesn't seem to mind getting hurt and someone else saving her!
And her stories i realised are very detail oriented and action packed. Big, small, dark, blue, red, a lot of kicking, jumping and running. By now, she gets all excited and jumps down from my lap and uses her hands, legs, eyes and movements and brings her story alive. 

After she's done, we clap our hands, totally amazed and blissfully happy. She is beaming now and for some reason runs blindly, throws herself at the sofa and hides her face, laughing! Is that shyness i see? By now i sense a small lump in my throat. 

She is a big girl now, isn't she?

People often say that I am animated when I tell my stories and that amuses them. I think they see me like you see Tanya. Its not bad is it? To not have the child in you grow up?

Absolutely right. Sometimes that's the only thing that keeps you sane. Happy kidding around ;)
