Today Arjun turns 6-month old. He is well on his way to sitting, crawling, growing teeth, saying mama and dada, and getting into all of Asha’s things. In short a perfect little boy who is so beautiful, gentle and happy that it melts my soul every time I look at him. Since I became a mother, I feel like I live in a bubble of constant happiness. It’s true despite of the many sleepless nights, tantrums, diapers, and attempts at making a two-year old see logic in things. On a day like today when I have yet another reminder that there is so much evil out there, I look at my kids and wonder whether to feel happy or sad. My thoughts go out to Paris – you are still my favorite place in the world.
Happy Birthday Arjun. I love you. I wish you nothing but kindness and happiness.
