The First Sketch?

Puttachi called out to me to show me what she had drawn, and said, "Nodu Amma, Chandamama!" [Look, Amma, Moon Uncle!]

And for the first time, what she had drawn did look like what she said she had drawn ;)

Now what I am not sure of is - whether she did intend to draw a moon and succeeded, or whether she just did a squiggle and realized that it looked like the moon. I tried to get her to draw it again, but she was not interested. She had moved on to other important matters.

Indeed with some scope for artistic license, indeed it does look like Chandamama with some clouds! :) Recently Abhinav had drawn a spiral squiggle and first time he gave a name to it 'jinke idu' - 'this is a deer' (maybe he meant the DNA strand of a deer ;) ) Hmm then this Chandamama-day might not be too far off.

ps: or maybe that's her signature at the bottom of the moon

Ahh.. I loved this stage. Where they squiggle and then interpret what it is. Shes going to amaze you with her interpretation, Shruthi. Just wait and watch! :)

Looks like some one is carrying the moon. Onerous task. :)

With the latest one, the number of posts with tag "Puttachi" is 73, one more than the posts with tag "opinion" which number 72. That's what parenting entails. Your own opinion slowly becomes subordinate to your parenting instinct:)

5 Tips On Making Your Car More Fuel Efficient

With gas prices sky high most individuals who drive are interested in ways they can make their car more fuel

efficient and save as much money as possible. While there are no fuel saving tips that will keep your car full of

gas without filling up, there are some tips that really can help you save money on fuel over the long run. All of

these tips focus on making your car more fuel efficient.

Fuel Efficiency Tip #1 Drive When You Crank Up This might seem obvious, but as soon as you crank up your car you

should drive off. However, many people crank up and leave the car idling for a while. Instead of this, when you

crank up drive off and only keep your car running when it is absolutely necessary.

Fuel Efficiency Tip #2 Don't Ride the Break Many drivers hit the break more often than is necessary. Additionally

there are quite a few drivers that slow down for a braking car when they could easily switch lanes. Not riding the

break can increase your fuel efficiency by up to 30%, so this is a great tip you should follow.

Fuel Efficiency Tip #3 Turn Off Your Car If you are going to be stopping for more than 10 minutes you should switch

off your car to keep fuel efficiency at its peak and not burn more gas than is necessary.
