Some days before Nadi’s birthday, I started lighting the candle in our room and blowing it out- just to give him a general idea of what this whole birthday business is all about. Although clearly fascinated by the concept, he didn’t really get that this power was also vested in him until a few weeks after his birthday when some light bulb went off in his tiny little head and he pointed to the candle going “fooooo”.
Since then everyday we have a foo session, atleast 3 times. August turned out to be a particularly foo-ful month for him, with his khaloo’s bday followed by his nana-abba’s, then his dadi, now a khala and then nanna momma- all these candles to be blown out- how exciting!! Watch out world the foofster is here!
