Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Kickin' It Up, EO Style

It was an absolute mad rush today! Around 150+ kids, with various assortments of moms, dads and maids. Quite a motley bunch these little karate kids! From three feet tall to double the height. Tiny little things with belts denoting a high rank and huge hulks at the first level. They were all there. And no matter what the age, the height or rank, they were all super-excited. They had all been chosen to go to the next level.

After the loooooong, gruelling day, many of these adorable tykes who probably couldn't even spell their name yet were good enough to get to the next level in karate, had to be carried out of the hall by a proud parent. Twelve/thirteen year old boys, proudly wearing their new brown belts, which speak for themselves about their high levels of skill and proficiency, came out of the hall and became children once upon seeing their moms...tantrums, meltdowns, exhaustion and 'aabdaar' just took over. Not karate champs anymore, just tired, hungry children looking for a mother's love to soothe the tiredness away.

And my little champ? He is now officially an orange belt! Yippee my little one! Go kick ass!

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...

Thank you all! Although here's a secret...I really don't know how much of karate my little champ is picking up! I ask him to strike a pose and he almost always manages to trip over hiw own two feet, so it's quite ridiculous actually!

But, that one 'little' thing aside, I'm as pleased as spiked punch!
