I’ve been listening to so many of Vedu’s stories from school all week. But nothing beats this snippet from her very first day.

“Amme, even though you told me that it is okay to feel sad and cry a little if I feel like in school, I wanted to be a brave girl. So, I didn’t cry when all the other babies were crying. But in between a drop of tear rolled down my cheek and I quickly wiped it off. The Aayamma saw it and asked me what happened. And I told her those are “TEARS OF JOY”. 😀
