Birthday Blues ??

Ic : Google/Internet

No more colour clothes,
For birthdays in school,
For we have graduated from primary to middle school,
No more pretty dresses and open tresses,
Only chocolates in the box.
In between the book stocks.
The thrill of feeling special,
And receiving umpteen wishes,
Are a thing of the past,
Having grown up to be a big girl,
Have to study a lot..
Gone are the days of enjoyment,
Having fun ?? I guess it’s lost,
For growing up comes with a bag full of responsibilities on all fronts,
For the little freebies and fun,we need to go on a little hunt 😊😊

As my little girl celebrates her birthday today, she had a mixed bag of emotions this morning. She was happy it was her birthday, but sad as her school has a no colour dress policy, for birthdays from middle school… Just penned down a few thoughts based on my interaction with my her.

  1. Wearing coloured clothes on one’s birthday to school with a box full of chocolates used to give us so much of a thrill. It’s really sad that today schools want to snatch that little joy away from children. Wish they were more sensitive to a child’s wishes.
    Wishing your princess a very happy birthday! God Bless!!

    1. Yes Radhika. That thrill and excitement used to begin a few days before the birthday and the discussions on who would accompany to distribute the chocolates… Those were the days πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
      Thank you for the best wishes πŸ™

  2. My best wishes to your little one on her birthday, Deepika! This poem brings back an avalanche of memories of celebrating birthdays when in school – coloured clothes, distributing candies and eclairs to the whole class, celebrating with 25 p worth “pepsi cola” after school…oh my!
