As part of becoming a father, there are some anniversaries I have to keep in mind. While I have forgotten most, here are the ones I remember.
In this post, the dates have been changed so that nobody lands up in court after our kid becomes famous and claims to be his/her mother!
DD1/MM1/YY – First time we knew Rekha was pregnant.
DD2/MM1/YY – First time we went to the medical lab for our child
DD3/MM1/YY – First time we visited the gynecologist
DD4/MM2/YY – First time we had the ultra sound scan

DD7/MM3/YY – First time the three of us traveled in a train
DD8/MM3/YY – First time the three of us visited Madurai
DD9/MM4/YY – First time the three of us went for a walk
DD10/MM4/YY – First time the three of us had ice-cream from a single cone

Like how Kingfisher is the King of Good times, I now call Rekha the Queen of first times. For everything there is a ‘first time`. So much so, the other day I called Rekha “beti” (in Hindi that means daughter) she relied:
“This is the first time you are calling me a beti, after I became pregnant.”
“Cool. Isn`t it?” When your wife is pregnant you have to act excited so that she is always in high spirits.
Just in case you haven`t already received Rekha`s mail which was dispatched to 5,439,87,902 friends all over the World, 13th of November shall hence forth be known as the day our baby first kicked Rekha in the stomach. Needless to say, Rekha is pretty kicked!
