    Having reached the end of the academic year, my children’s class teacher had sent a note in their calendar last week stating that they need to come in full uniform as they are going to have a photo session..Gr8. My hats off to the photographer who is bestowed with this himalayan task:hatsoff. It takes me lot of time and patience to take a picture of my kids sitting in one place asking them to smile and say cheese!!! When my son is ready, my daughter will turn towards him or in some other direction..or will be admiring her dress..Or when my daughter is ready with her beautiful smile, my son will not be in the mood, he will run away from the place or he will become so conscious that he will cover his face or make faces at me…Ahhhh!!! ..Finally the photo came yesterday...I was earnestly looking out for my daughter and son in the group photo. My daughter is fine, she was in her usual smile ..a big cheese…and what about my son…Ah! My son was also having a big cheese smile but he was looking at his neighbour to check whether he is wearing his cheese smile on his face…Side view photo of my son!!! Gr8..Better than nothing……

    I was curious to know their names..As usual my daughter with her big mouth went on “this is Karen, Hamsa….”..I wanted my son to say couple of names… He goes “L Gautham, Akash…”..I suddenly realized he says only guy’s name…I interrupted:idea..”What is this girls name?..” There he goes..”I don’t know any girls name..Girls are not my friends…I will not talk to them… I talk to only boys…Akash, SomGovind, Rohit.” with a frown on his face….My daughter adds “He will not talk to girls…No girl friends for Monu..I’ll talk to all boys”..Ahh!!! …
    May be he got sick and tired and frustrated with his experiences with his sister and mother ;-)…Girls are too hard to handle…”Girls are bad..”..”Boys are good..” He goes on …I correct him “No No..Girls are good..Boys bad…G for good B for bad”..He gets irritated…He gets the company of my hubby “Look Accha..Boys are good..Girls are bad…”…My hubby will join him…”yeah, yeah…”…shakehead…

    Hai Sumy

    Another good blog from you. Your Monu is like my son Keerthi - who says dealing with girls is a tough job (remember he is in UKG). he also adds, girls will be friendly until their job is done, after wards they will fly. He always says girls are very bad.

    I enjoyed your blog and I will tell this to my son during the bed time stories.

    hey sumi.
    monu nad keerthi reminded me a lot of my brother and me...i can very well imagine him sideways in the class pic:)
    and such firm opinions both of them have re the opposite sex...haha ,.enjoy every stage of theirs..they grow up too fast..
    and a tip..ask them to write the names of all their classmates in the picture behind the picture and preserve it for them..they will enjoy it a lot later

    love
    Mindi

    Nice one Sumy. I have no idea how kids understand the gender difference. My son would easily identify who is a girl and who is a boy even before he was two, and I never taught him any trick. I have been there in the photo session so many times and can never be happier for the digi cam invention. children are amazing, aren't they ?

    Hi gayu_r ,
    Kids are more natural in their behaviors. They are unadulterated.
    Hats off to the digi cam inventor !!! Infact, my daughter has this thumb sucking habit..When she was in playschool, they took so many pictures..She refused to remove it from her mouth and it seems they edited her photo alone with some other hands…so that she looks as if she is not sitting in that thumb sucking posture…It was more realistic to see…Sumy
