We have a nice little park behind our house. It has a small play area where there are a few swings, slides, see-saws and other rides. We rarely take the kids there, not because the place is bad. Its just because, there’s hardly anyone at home to take them to the garden 😦

Me,the BF and BIL return late in the evening (usually past 8pm). The MIL returns early, but by the time she reaches home and has a cup of tea, it is already dusk. The FIL took the kids there once, but he was a tad uncomfortable at being the only man in the vicinity. For some reason, the park is usually full of women and their kids. Men rarely frequent the place. After that one instance, the FIL gave it up too. The girl who looks after the kids cannot manage them both together and it makes no sense for her to leave one at home and take the other out!

So my poor little munchkins are more or less held captive at home.

And that is why, on a rare Saturday afternoon, when I take them out, they look like this :-

Happy to cruise along 🙂

"Can't this thing go any faster??"

The real smile

....and the fake one!!

"Whoa!! Giddyyup Duck!!"

"I wanna go up this way. NOW!!"

      SS : “Mammaa…I’m coming down”.                      RS: ” I won’t get off this swing. EVER!”


"I LOVE the warm sunshine on my face"

"....and I have attained Nirvana. On the horse 😐 "

"But we love it best when our Abba's around 🙂 "


Just looking at these snaps makes me wallow in guilt up till my eyes 😦

There is so little the kids actually ask for! And when they get something like this unexpectedly (a trip to the park with the parents), their joy is unbridled !

We really need to make more such trips. At least before they start getting embarrassed to be seen in public with their parents (oh!! The shame of it!! They wouldn’t be able to face their peers for ages!! My poor angels 😐 ).

The future, is not too far way 😦

Its Appraisal time!!

Which means that one has to have comments ready for subordinates!!

Now I don’t mean to say that I’d ever use  any of these for my subs, but seriously, I wish I could 😉 (specially the ones in bold. There sure are some deserving candidates around 😀 )
