Just for the heck of it

Sometimes I'm forced to post just to displace a post. This is one of those times. Bohat ho gaya love shove. kya bakwaas.

There is going to be no deep thinking this weekend. I am going to visit my 11 month old niece!! I went to "Toys-R-us" to get her something today..and was so kicked by all those cute little outfits in the store! Am going to see her after 8 months, and cannot believe how fast she is growing up! So after I exercised a lot of self-control and stopped myself from buying out the whole store, I was grinning from ear to ear just excited at the prospect of seeing her. I realised I was walking all around the store looking silly like that, when someone gave me a look as if I was mental or something. Quickly tried to gather myself into displaying some semblance of sanity, paid and scurried out. Continued grinning all the way on the drive home. Haven't stopped yet. This is going to be problematic at security at the airport, for sure. :)

Yay! See you all next week! :) :)

ahemmmmmmmmmmm! all this grinning bizness, eh? it seems someone's "motherly instinct" is kicking in, and HOW.

khi khi khi khi.

that poor li'l niece of yours. try not to torture her too much dressing her up in all the frocks you got her and thinking she's a baby doll...wait, she probably IS a baby doll :))

anyway ... now u've got ample practice ... apparently babies are SCIENTIFICALLY proven to cause goofiness in most people with hearts and intellects so you're MENTAL al right :P but not in the way of colloquial usage...

Nirwa said...

Lots of love to your niece!! I love kids!! I can't wait to be a masi, and I am going to spoil my niece/nephew! :P

He/she will be exactly like me :P Crazy! And yeah, I'd probably go crazy buying gifts for him/her!!!!

I hope you get out of this condition of yours soon enough, it might make things difficult for you at certain occasions.

Clothes shopping for toddlers is so much fun... IT gets less entertaining as they grow up but when I did it for my nephew and neice, I had a ball of a time going through all those cute little thingies..

satya, perspective, shub,

thanks! i had a blast. :)

T.C.O,
arre all the clothes i took were a loose for her! (Thats why my mom always told me, khud ka dimaag nai laganeka! should've gone by the sizes. anyways, she will wear them in a few months.)
