Heights of enthusiasm

So Cantaloupe gets a new activity book to work on before going to bed. Its a sticker book, where she needs to find various stickers and paste them on the right shadow ... making sure of the context on the page. (transportation, pre-historic, birds etc etc)
As always with new items bought, she was all excited to work on the same with me. Within 10 mins of us starting the activity she says "Amma, I asked you to look over my job ... not take over !!" (she said "nodu antha helde Madu antha hela lilla")

What can I say .... I still get excited working on a new project ... perhaps a little too much at times :))

What kind of mother

1. Doesn't let her 5 year old learn to turn on the TV by herself ? *
2. Doesn't let her 5 year old fiddle with the laptop for more than 10 mins? **
3. Hasn't introduced her daughter to the world of video games ??***

Hmm ... well ... that would be my kind of mother :)))

* She can very well turn on the TV, but its configured for DVD / VCR/ Cam Coder and other modes and doesn't know the concept of these modes
** Strictly Starfalls
*** Has never played with any thus far !

You know you have become a good story teller when ...

Your 5 year old daughter cheers for you loudly in bed when your name is announced as a winner in a story told to her about your school days :)

Report card

Date: May 18, 2009
Time: 7:00pm
Place: Neighborhood Grocery Store
Mission Accomplished: Junior drinks Fruity with a straw
Note: Cantaloupe gracefully shared the juice first and quickly realised that Junior was a pro with the straw and demanded the pack from her quickly

Date: May 25, 2009
Time: 4:15 pm
Place: Junior land
Mission Accomplished: Junior successfully climbs up the "Spiral Stairs"
Note: Has climbed the same as a pro there after.

Date: May 27, 2009
Time: 7:20am
Plane: Junior Land, Bedroom
Mission Accomplished: Junior successfully descends from the bed taller than her
Note: Has realised that descending face down is dangerous and slides on her tummy before jumping and landing on her legs with hands outstretched (resembling the landing of gymnast)

Mystery Unresolved: Why didn't the parents realise that she might have acquired the skill set much earlier? And more importantly how did she learn them and execute it like a pro???
