Last Saturday was Vinayaka Chavithi. V has seen an animated movie on Ganesh (the Elephant God), so he was very excited when I told him it's Ganesh's Birhday. His first question was , "Are you making a cake for Ganesh momma?"
I did not make a cake but told him we will have some pooja to do and the itsy bitsy traditions that go with it. This is the first Indian festival he participated 100% and sat through me reciting the mantras and the story and all that Jazz. He was very excited that I got him new clothes. When I showed him the Kurta pyjama he wanted to know if "Do you have a matching kurta pyjama momma". Well I didn't but found a pink saree (yes he's wearing pink, get over it).
Then we started with the slokam
At the end of the pooja my boy sang "Happy Birthday to you Ganesh" :)
