Then, after a brief pause: "I know it's your first time, Amma, but be brave!"
Surprised, I say, "Okay."
"There are going to be a lot more kids than you think!"
For a while there, almost six years, I was the invincible super Mom. No more. She realizes that even her mother can be afraid, shy, and not so perfect.
But though I did have a butterfly in my tummy, it had nothing to do with being at Summy's school. It was this "Butterfly Award" that the Litterateuse sent me, which I swallowed up willingly.
I don't know what to say! (Gee, Thanks, G!)
In turn, here is my list of coolest blogs:
Litterateuse: Possibly, she's brought you here. She's new on the blogk, and here is a warm welcome to her. The title is very apt, and hers is one of the most entertaining, cool, clever, and punny blogs I've ever read. (and I'm not just scratching her back)
Winkie's Way: Beautiful, poetic, touching, funny, insightful. Way cool.
A Few Seasons Worth: Writes well and is so honest that it has got to be cool.
This Butterfly has already touched the Litterateuse (the idea of which I know makes her shudder). Tharini of Winkie's Way is on vacation. And I was only a lurker on A Few Seasons Worth and I don't know if Anumita will take this up. I do hope that this will get passed on.
