Parcel from Bhutan

"Words left unsaid will sit inside your mind screaming" Raine Cooper

I am very excited to share this beautiful moment I had with my daughter this evening.

Today, on this beautiful rainy day, I checked my mailbox as Bumchu and I returned from the city library. 

I saw a "safe drop" message from post office. I was so excited, my long waited parcel is waiting for me to collect it. It is very rare I get such thoughtful gifts from Bhutan so I was obviously over the moon and feeling lucky to have special friends in Bhutan.

When I received the parcel, call it crazy or funny, I closed my eyes, brushed my nose close to the package and took a deep breath. I thought, "the Bhutanese smell must have disappeared in transit."

When Bumchu saw the yellow package, she thought it is something to eat so she couldn't keep her excitement down either. She said, "Nang nang"  with her two cute small hands reaching out for the parcel.

Both of us couldn't contain our 'own' excitement and we opened it as soon as we got home.

Voila! I exclaimed, "YOUR KIRA and TEGO" 

She gave a huge hug like it was  her toy. I smiled and explained to her, "This is dress, you wear it" feeling tremendously happy and thankful for amazing people in my life.

There she goes, totally rocking her new outfit.

I probably must have thanked numerous times  but anyway, thank you Ana Luzee and my dear friend Kezang for sending your love to Bumchu.

Hokey Pokey Dance

Music is such a beautiful thing. It makes you laugh, cry, sing, dance and learn and even brings people together.

My daughter is fond of nursery rhymes and music in general. She loves Psy's Gangham style and Gentleman and Silento's Watch me whip and watch me Nae Nae at the moment.

I can't say which songs she likes best but I can certainly tell you that she likes upbeat music. As soon she hears the song she knows, her face lights up with contend smile and slowly pulls off her cute dancing steps wiggling and just shaking it off. 

Walking home through Botanic Garden

Whenever we go out without a baby pram or the stroller or even the baby sling, she get's excited because she is free to walk without any buckles around her.

The problem is later when she gets tired, I feel the pang of her tiredness.

Taking a rest 

As her tiredness reach the peak time, I sing her favourite songs and this helps her to calm her down.

Doing the Hokey Pokey
She is dancing to "Hokey Pokey" song which I learned because of her. Thank you my little girl for showing me that I can sing and learn nursery rhymes too.
