keeping cool


Mumbai is seriously heating up. Afternoons are very hot and nights aren’t exactly cool. Move over tshirts, onesies, shirts…hello soft cotton undershirts (or as they are called in mumbai – banyaans). Picked up a few plain white ones for the boys to wear around the house. While they were excited about getting something new, siddhant looked at them and said “no color?!” So i decided to make a little art project for myself out of this.

painted really bold and simple vehicles on the front – did a dump truck and a cement mixer for starters. The boys love them and were so excited by their new banyaans. They even wanted to wear them to the park. 

It’s actually a fun way to keep them in cool comfy clothes and have them personalized for the twins. 


About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
