Time with Abhishek

July 16th, 2010 · 2 Comments

For me, one of the best things about the vacation was the time I got to spend with Abhishek. At 5 years and 3 months, he is now at an age where one can have interesting conversations. He is much more mature and independent than a year ago during the London vacation. He has a nice sense of humour – especially when he and Bhavana are ganging up against me!

He is full of questions. I patiently answer everything he asks. That’s how it has always been. And through the answers and his own thinking, he learns. At times, the questions do get repetitive, but I still answer each one of them. There is rarely a dull moment with him.

Besides the outdoors, there were two indoor activities that Abhishek did during the vacation. The first was playing Uno. I had just packed a set of cards before we left, and that turned out to be a smart decision. We had a lot of fun playing the game – with him threatening to show his ‘kamaal’ in every game! The second was playing with his trans, buses and taxis. He had taken a bag full of his vehicles – to which he added a few more during the trip. The hotel room became the roads and tracks as he created his own imaginary worlds.

A vacation like this creates memories that one can treasure for a long time.
