           I made this pedas for my first son's (Sanjay) birthday(27th april).He loves this pedas very much.He was so much excited when i was preparing this in microwave for him.
Sanjay :  Mummy what r u doing in microwave.??..some good smell ,show me..
Me :       I am preparing medicine for !!!
Sanjay:   show it to me ...i want to see what medicine it is ??
   When i showed him the bowl...he was so excited and eh....sweet dhaana mumy panra??   so sweet boy.
And he is very caring like his dad...whenever I get sick...he take much care on me...he wont trouble me a lot..used to be quite n calm...
Even yesterday also he was scolding me...mummy you are not feeling well,but you are working in kitchen for long time...its enough mummy come n take rest....very sweet boy... adorable...
He is more naughty and mischievous but at the same time he is too good and sweet boy.
Many of my friends and relatives used to say that my kids and hubby are more lucky to have me...but the real truth is I am the most luckiest person to have such a affectionate husband and lovely kids.They are my world and the meaning of my life :)  ok no more personal stories....sometimes i am more emotional :)
