Mandatory year end post

I always make a point to read the previous year ending post before posting the one for present year, just to get a kick of what was going on my mind at that time. Junior took to play school big time and had brought in a reform of sorts with his way of wishing. Whenever i go to pick him up from school it makes me feel so happy, to hear teachers from other sections as well, addressing him as the vanakkam kid. His tantrums at home are reaching critical mass and makes me worry about how we are going to handle him in coming years. Of the several things that i never understand, the foremost being, how my parents controlled me and my tantrums when i was a kid. My mom says (at least now) that i used to be very quiet and was never a mischievous as a kid. With each passing day,
the way junior is shaping up, is a lesson for me on my own childhood and also on the cause and effect theory. From being the fun and cute part, the responsible portion of raising a kid begins with this year starting with hunt for good primary school. 2018 was a year not short on my attempts to bring about a change in my career or in my way of working. Hopefully 2019 should be much more fruitful.

My only wish, as always been to read more books, watch more good movies, spend more time worth remembering at the end of the day. Special thanks and mention to Thala Ramesh for single handedly keeping this blog running with his comments :D

A very apt post - absolutely right that Junior dominates your life and thoughts these days. In a sense, that will be forever, but it is even more so in his childhood. The joys and worries of parenthood ........

Happy New Year to you and your family Gilsu. You are the only active blogger around amongst all the bloggers who started out in the heady days of blogging. May you forever be the star blogger.

Wishing you much happiness.

Hey Gilsu, Happy new year.

I have been an irregular visitor to your blog, but have decided to focus a bit more on the blog world.

Lets keep this going.

My son as a toddler was a livewire. anyone who took a look at him, asked me how he is managed at home and who does it. He was a dynamite in action. It comes with its challenges, but the best is they grow up to be well mannered great human beings. :-) :-)
