Ok so Vaava finally got her wish, we’ve coloured her pink….currently she has pink toes (they are truly the cutest things) and pink ears, and a tiny smidgen of pink just above her left eyebrow….
Yesterday was Holi…the happiest, hippiest, maddest festival in the Indian festival calendar (and we’ve really got our share of festivals). But seriously, you’ve just got to love a culture which has an entire day devoted to getting as hammered as possible. Its divine debauchery! It was also the dear daughter’s first Holi. Well not exactly but the last two years we thought she was too young to really “play” Holi and plus her mother wanted to get hammered but this year we decided she was ready! And was she! My gosh, I have to admit I was a bit worried at first, though I dared not even admit this to the hubby. But I was thinking, all that water, all the strange colours, people on bhaang (more about that later) this could be good…or this could be very very bad. And you know what, bless her darling heart, she was fabulous about it.
Just look at the picture….!
She played and danced and soaked her father in water, and ate and danced some more and soaked her father once again and whirled and even let her mother get some quiet time with her friends to have a bloody mary and a illicit cigarette and it was just fabulous.
I’m so proud of her. She didn’t even blink an eyelid when she saw both her parents looking like this….
WHAT A COOL CHICK!
