You will grow up

Oh my little girl, oh oh little girl
Oh little girl, my little darling
You’re gonna go to school when you grow up

You’re gonna carry a cute little bag
You’re gonna dress like a little princess
Oh you’re gonna look beautiful

Oh my little girl
Don’t you hurry to grow up now
You’ll grow up and you can’t stop

You will go to school for sure
And that will be before long
Now my little girl, you will grow up for sure

Yes, you’re gonna dress like a princess
Cuz you’re my little princess
And you’ll go to school feeling great.


Note* This is a song I had to sing extempore to my daughter as a lullaby because she was so sleepy yet she couldn’t fall asleep. She ran around excitedly (the way children do when they are sleepy) and I was scared that she will not be able to sleep until she got hurt and cried. So, I had to come up with an idea to calm her down. We turned off the light, and opened the curtain. Then we looked outside from the window, watching the people walking up and down, cars passing by, and little children walking around with bags on their back. It is the view of two little children, an elder one a boy, and a younger one a girl, seemingly a sibling carrying a bag each on their back, walking outside without the company of an adult that inspired us to sing this song. She often watches children going to school from the veranda, sitting with her grandma, exclaiming that they are going to ‘schooli’. It kind of fascinates her and she seems to think school is a great place. It is – but I don’t want her to go there yet. I want her to have a proper childhood that has no schedules and pressure. I think it is at home that children have more freedom to explore. So I urge her in the song that she will grow up and go to school one day – which will be soon.

 It gives you a glimpse of how I and my daughter spend our time together.

Thanks Yeesi. Now my little girl sings, 'oh oh little girl, oh oh little girl' to her doll.

My Home is no more

My parents worked so hard to first get a land where they could farm. Then they worked so hard to build a house of their own. Their hard work paid. They made a name for themselves. They built two houses; more if we are to count the houses they help build for their children. But for what?

We could argue that if they did not work that hard, their children -- my siblings and I could be doing something different, and earning our living in a different way. They worked hard--all for us. They taught us humility. One thing that rings in my mind still to this day is that, we are humble people and we should always remain humble. I could say we have lived it.

What hit me hard was this picture that my eldest brother sent me from my village:



I cannot believe that the place that I called home and the place that lives in me has become like this. I had to look at this picture again and again -- closely. The landscape itself looks changed and it is nothing like I remember from my childhood. Our home, t…

Dechen in K2

Dechen was in K2, Kuensel on August 2, where daycare centres and early childhood development was covered. I just thought putting about it here would help me keep record about it.

So bogged down to add anything more at the moment. I can only say that I am a proud mother.

This is for those who are looking for a way of importing list of contact addresses at once on your iPhone without having to add one at a time.

1. If you have the contact list in the excel format, convert it into csv format 2. Now convert it into VCF format online on this link: http://www.artistec.com/pages/CSV2vCard.html
2. Follow the instruction on this link
3. Once you have the output of your contact list on that link in the VCF format, copy and paste it in a notepad
4. Save it with the file extension .vcf
5. Log in on icloud using your login credentials
