With summer in full swing here in India, I’ve had tons of fun keeping our little one busy with crafts, cooking, coloring and books. Our summer schedule is relatively fluid, simple and easygoing but we do have a schedule.
This Sunday is Father’s Day and while we will be attending a birthday lunch for a friend’s one-year old, later Manini and I will be spending the day making her Papa feel super special. She’s already thrilled about what ‘present’ we’ll be getting him as well as the cake we’ll be baking for him.
We live in Gurgaon, which in the summer months (which, in turn, last about 6-7 months a year) can get searing hot and it’s only the advent of monsoon that brings some relief. Winter time, however, is our favourite season as a family.
This year, one of my goals is to create a more structured yet free-flowing learning environment for our soon-to-be-in-nursery preschooler. Have I had a lot of success? Not yet. But am working on it.
