So life for me has changed once again. Now I find myself breaking the rules. Yeah I like to think of it as breaking the rules. Not lying , just not volunteering all the facts. The club house where I live has a gym and offer free classes. I have not been able to go as much as I want since there is no time or classes that fit my schedule. Well now Pravan takes a kid fitness class on Tuesday afternoons. I have to watch Priyasha during this 45 min class. All the other moms do not have younger ones so they work out or they leave the younger ones at the kids corner. That is another free service if your kid is potty trained and 3yrs old. Priyasha meets just one criteria but they offered to watch her. So I just withheld her age. Don't ask, Don't tell right ! However I feel guilty but I am not lying. I am liking this new discovery. It has been two days now and I have been working out. I did a step aerobics class and looked like a dork. I am pretty co-ordinated but just could not get some steps right or keep up. Who cares ? I am willing to look like a clown if I can burn calories and get rid of the joey pooch I am carry around. On the kids side Pravan is growing up and is now showing signs of shyness around nudity. Priyasha is still little and sometimes is in her panties walking around and Pravan is all giggly and points to her panties. Well this is not new to him but his behaviour is new. Well this morning he was cold so he was on the floor all curled up in a ball in the sun just like a cat. It was funny. Well later on we were having a talk about girls panties. I told him that his sister is still a baby and it is nothing to laugh about if her panties are showing. I also told him that girls need to learn how to sit like a lady and that is what Priyasha has to remember. So I told him not to look at girls panties in his class. I also said " If you do that you will get into trouble and go to the Principal's office because it is not nice " All of a sudden he was curled up in a ball on the floor. I asked him if he was cold. He said " No , I am just crying " I was confused. He sat up and said " I don't want you to be mad but I will tell the truth " I could not help but smile and say " What ? " He then continued as tears rolled down his cheek and said " I did that one time in school but I do not remember who the girl is. Will I go to the Principal's office now ? " I gave him a hug and said " It is okay but do not let it happen again " If ten years from now my words are as powerful as they are today I will have the best teenagers ever. Sadly I know that will change so I will very firmly hold onto the power I have now. Wow my six year old is already looking at girls panties. I am in trouble. My only consolation is that it is innocent now. I admire Pravan for always telling the truth. Every so often he will choose to fib but I know when he does it and give him a chance to tell the truth. I think he has learnt this and hopefully will keep telling the truth. I am not so sure I am ready to deal with these new issues and need the next volume to motherhood. I better place an order soon. ( Research and read more.) This afternoon he has a follow up with the allergist. I am still researching my camera and the lenses. I am also still doing the photography challenge and this week it is documenting the crazy morning rush. So keep checking back and hopefully I will post some pic soon. Have a great day !
