Baby sitting experience – Aneri

Most of us have one or more occasion to go through this type of experience .During my current USA trip once again i have gone though baby sitting of my grand daughter Aneri. This is after a very long interval of about 30 years.

No doubt this is a pleasant and joyful job to play with children.One can enjoy this activity very well if energy level of the person is at the same or more but at least not less than level of the child.But when child is ill or not in usual mood it becomes a big task to manage for even a short period.

Before I came here I told my son Samir that u don’t worry at all about Aneri ,I will manage her alone.But after my arrival I found that it is not as simple or easy as I thought before.Our Aneri is very much active and energetic playful to do all Dhamals.She does not walk but runs all the times. I wish I have energy of a kid. 🙂 But fact is that age does its job. 🙂 With my energy level reduced compared to 30 years back, for me, running after Aneri is like going to Gym. 🙂 Though tiring, it gives us great pleasure and treasure to cherish for long time… As they say “Mudi karata vyaj vadhare vhalu hoi” 🙂

Here are some glimpses of Aneri – playing with Grandpa

Trying images through windows Live Writer

Using wordpress’s online image editor could be bit slow.  I am hoping for better option. Samir suggested using WLW itself to do so.

I am trying WLW. Let’s see how it goes.

Here are two snaps of our trip to Las Vegas and Grand Canyon in 2006, when we visited US first time.
