Recipe | Healthy Oats and Apple Squares

Please don’t call me channa, pingu-pongu, betu, chotu-pattu in college ma” my son instructed before leaving for the orientation program on the first day of his college life.

Hmm..will try my best” I smiled and looked at him from the corners of my eyes…the lad is all grown up.

School days are over for son and he is ready for yet another milestone in his life’s journey. We packed his bags and were on our way to attend the orientation program in his college and also to help him settle comfortably in the hostel later.

It was not so very long ago when I had excitedly informed mom that we have put him in primary school. “It will be over before you know it, just enjoy their childhood days and try to capture these innocent moments” my mom’s words echoed in my ears as loaded his bags in the car.

Years rolled by as we drove past the high ways early in the morning.

It seems like yesterday when I held him in my arms and he first looked at me and smiled. I can still picture those tiny fingers, soft pinkish feet, wavy hair and that baby smell which still linger to me.

I remember his first wobbly steps and holding his hands to help him walk.

 

How time flies..given a chance, I would love to go back to days when he was a baby and freeze that time forever.

Mom, wake up, we have reached”, my son opened the door and asked me to come out.

We walked down the well-organized garden of his majestic college campus. All I could see there was a sea of proud & anxious parents, their eyes filled with big dreams and a heart filled with endless love for their children.

It was an anxious moment for us to leave him there and come back home. The journey back home without him in the car was probably the longest ever and the most silent one we have ever experienced in recent times.

I understand that I have little control over his activities and actions at this phase of life. But I wish and hope he comes out to be an independent, polite and emotionally strong individual with the guidance and values instilled in him at home.

You have already shot past me in height long back and may not like to be hugged and kissed anymore. But in my eyes you will always remain my bubbly pingu-pongu baby..always 🙂
