Funny Things - School :)

Since it's the beginning of the school year here, I thought I'd do a funny things post that was school related :) (The school year here begins in April. May & June are summer break and school starts back in July :)). Anyway, this is a book that we got from Aashini's school when she started there. It's a "coffee table book" called: "Celebrate Childhood"....
Each page has a picture on one side and "something to celebrate" on the other side. They say things like: "Celebrate holidays... celebrate winning prizes, etc..." This one below is an example. It says on the top: "Celebrate unexpected guests who drop by to see the baby". The bottom part says: "Teach children to welcome guests and respect elders. Let them learn good social manners early on." OK, that's cool.... but this next one....
I'm not sure how well this next one would go over in the US.... It says: "Celebrate drawing on Papa's office files". The bottom says: "Get angry with your child and you are showing behavior you want to discourage in him." haha! Did you see the picture????? "Papa" is totally punching his son in the head!!! Uhh.... yeah....
This next one I put in because I thought the picture was a little inappropriate... It says: "Celebrate frustrating potty training sessions." The kid is totally running around without pants - haha! This is the most interesting "coffee table parenting book" I've seen... actually I think it's the only one I've seen :) haha!
Anyway, thought I'd share :)


HAHA! "Guaranteed to be a better parent!" HAHA! The potty training one is hilarious!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).
