Before closing her session in Nursery, Gowri had a competition in her School - " Show & Tell" Competition about any of her favourite like toys, fruits etc... I chose her the subject of her doll which she recently got as gift from Periappa(Raju's Brother). As usual asked my sis, to create a story line in four/five sentences.
Raju's brother was here and he helped in rephrasing the story and taught her for two days continously. She picked it quite well and her delivery was also good. But was not sure how she is going to present in school. She could do well and got a consolation prize - A Certificate in the competition.
Here you go to see her Presentation (Replay taken at home) and below the Certificate.
Gowri, this is the start....

Now since she has started understanding things better, she wished to have a party with friends.. This year her b'day was on Saturday... To make it to her wishes, being Saturday we invited her cousins- Shubha didi, Vishal Bhaiyya & Shreya Didi -who stays in Delhi.... Though all of them had classes on Saturday, after the school they made it to attend her b'day party, to make her feel happy.... Since she is the youngest in the family she is so fond of, to her cousins and her periappa's & periamma's pamper her a lot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Cut to the evening of B'day - Coincidentally my hubby's cousin's family came over from Delhi to meet my in-laws. She got two more cousins for her party .... Shashank bhaiyya & Shreshta Didi.........

This is an incident which happened in Sept '08. This was in the drafts for a long time and now I have found out time to update and publish.
Gauri had an outing from her school to Rail Museum, Delhi. We dropped her at school in the morning and went @ 1.00 pm to pick her back after the trip.
Met her mam' and took her feedback how she is progressing. Just a month back there was a formal Open House, first one in the new school and got a positive feedback. However, this time there was some comments which we know from her nature at home. But heard the same from her Mam' - No concentration and feels disturbed in the classroom.
We took the feedback positively and gave her a small advice and start practicing meditation everyday for minimum 5 mts. Since hardly will get time in the busy schedule in the morning.
She took it positively and did it initially for 2 days. Third day onward while getting up in the morning, I used to tell her it's already late, get up fast. She will repeat ya, already late will not get time to study, no time for dhyanam!!! which she want to escape. I accept saying, ya no time. Shall finish routine fast and make time for study atleast !! and she says ya ya.
After routine, somehow will manage to make her to do it. But it has helped a lot !!!She infact improved in her concentration and got a very positive feedback from her mam in the next PTA Meeting. Also, this was reflecting in her in the assessment results which was given in Nov '08.
Enjoy one of her Meditation............... :)

This is the first post in 2009. My sis keeps on reminding me to update the blog with Gauri's actions, reactions, stories, adventures......... But I don't get time due to my laziness... so called excuse.. " busy at work ". I don't find time that is the truth.
Coming back, just few instances where I have become the student, infact all the family members and teacher is none other than Ms. Gauri.
(This photograph was taken whe she dressed up as Indira Gandhi for fancy dress competition in her School)
This instance happened around 3 months back. In her syllabus she has to learn the Alphabets and vocabulary. There are some words to be identified along with the pictures. Alphabet is G and one of the words was "Goat ". Though I have studied in English Medium, pronunciation was important but not to extent Gauri taught me. I showed the picture and told her to repeat "Got". She immediately corrected me " Amma it is not GOT, you should say "GOAT". I used to be very cautious when I do the revision for her.
This instance happened very recently. On 25th Dec '08 my MIL was feeling some uneasiness and took her for a check up to the nearby hospital. Unfortunately, she was diagoniased for High BP & Sugar and was to be hospitalised. When we were sitting the Nurse came to give injection. I told Gauri, shall I tell the Nurse to give you one "injuction ". She immediately responded " Amma you are saying wrong.. it is not injuction, say "INJECTION " and laughed at me " My hubby, my mom & MIL all started laughing...:)
Gauri picks up things quickly and even she has given classes for Hindi to my mom. My mom has been in North for around 4 years that is around 25 years back. But still she remembers the Hindi she learned that time but ya gramatical errors peeps in too often. But her Hindi is good enough to manage the things required. Teacher Gauri, corrects her grammatical errors, pointing out to her paati you are saying wrong, be say like this...............
Now onwards I am really careful in the pronunciations, otherwise Teacher Gauri will start her classes for me, though it is a good class !!!
