My Play School - Kangaroo Kids 

Till now I was already having a busy schedule with getting up early in the morning, having my bed milk, play with my toy friends, make tea and food for all in my kitchen (It’s the latest addition to my gifts, will share  the story about it sometime soon) take bath , afternoon nap and then finally meet all friends in the building for updates… now the whole point and confusion was to fit the school in this busy
schedule. phewww

After the entire search operation my mom and dad zeroed down on Kangaroo Kids - Powai which is very near to our place. And we selected the second slot from 11am as my parents know how busy Im during the morning hours  :)

On a weekend I was taken to the new school to show me the place and meet all teachers ….I was all thrilled as there was a huge set of toys, cycle, sand dunes and my cartoon friends drawn all around. At first go itself i was like lets start the fun ASAP.

Different Moods

And the D day arrived -My first day at the playschool will always be a moment for pause, the entire family was there with me to the school and all attended the trial session with me :) more than me the rest of my family members were skeptical about how I will manage this change. In-fact for first few days my grandmom used to wait downstairs for me to complete the school so that I need not wait or get worried for not seeing anyone after the class gets over.

Attending the trail Session

Soon the trial session ended and I was all set to join the school and which was a real fun and suddenly I felt that I am no longer a toddler and it was a huge spectrum of change even for all around me.  From the day I have joined, a new set of world has emerged in front of me… Daily learning new rhymes and narrating the same back at home (not sure how much they get it as many time I saw them searching on youtube ) With teachers, it was fun to make / learn creative activities like drawing, colouring, finger painting,  crafts and the best part was gifting them to parents back at home.

Now that I have completed 1 month at school, there are lot of good memories … learning new things, my first teachers (Shruti ,Deepa, Vanita ) and made my first few friends (Samara, Raghav, Purav …. Other
name I am still to remember). It was a wonderful time sharing bday parties, Traditional dress day, Diwali celebration, Party for Grandparents and attending the vacation camp :)

IM A BIG GIRL NOW !! And these days the song I know just know how to whisper ….. Papa kehte hain bada naam karega :)

After a hard day.. Over and Out :)
