A season of birthdays
On Sunday, we took part in two birthday celebrations. One of V's (11-yr-old) niece who had come down from Ooty with her parents, and secondly of a blogger friend's son. The former involved a cake-cutting at our place, and the latter a gala party on the terrace of our friend's flat.
The kids had fun at both, and were happy to have a lot of their peers around them for a change. I had fun too, especially as I got a good deal of time to chat with the kids's peadiatrician and his pathologist wife, who had made a surprise visit to the party with their teenaged son. I guess doctors too feel so lonely at the top and wouldnt mind interaction with their patients and their parents - the 10 minute allotted for each kid-patient at the hospital is not enough for such personal relationships.
