if it’s tuesday it must be…


we were looking at photo albums.

to my intense surprise, i can’t seem to identify which one is firstborn and which is baby param, when i was looking at pictures of when they were one, two or even three years old.

-‘look at the elephant. it’s Munnar’, so it must be firstborn

– ‘oh it’s Penang, we had baby param by then, so this must be baby param’

– ‘who went to school with teacher S ? then that boy in the pic must be firstborn’


soon, i’ll need someone to point out to me in the photoalbums. sigh.

  1. LOL! We go by the dress they are wearing – ‘Oh this red one with white and navy blue flowers – must be firstborn’ etc.

    The joys of having >1 kid 😉

    • i have a perfect recall aunt. she remembers everything.
      ‘ oh that kid she’s the one that had diarrhoea at V’s marriage, after eating too many cashews’
      and suddenly i am content with goldfish memory.

  2. the joys of having 1 kid = me mixing my baby photos with my daughter’s baby photos and confusing people.
    The b/w and colour prints give away the time difference, but since i was arty mother who often took b/w stills of the kid, its only my mum and me who can tell the two apart. ( the husband can tell the difference too but only because he thinks she looks exactly like he did when he was a baby but he has no photo to prove it!)

  3. Err.. how do you know goldfish have bad memories?!

    @Sur: Its different with >1 kid. Reason – when its you and your kid the stuff *around* is different so you get clues. here it is the same car seat, same stroller, same toys, same books, same mommy too!

  4. @choxbox : funny you mention same mommy, because that’s exactly how I tell mine apart. I was too cheap to buy new clothes and toys, so that wouldn’t have helped. The extent of wear and tear on *my* face and clothes, the amount of hair left on my head and the crookedness of my glasses is a dead giveaway.
