Jig-saw me

I did blog about the games we play but didn't mention jig saw puzzles because Achu and I don't have the patience to 'work' on jig-saw puzzles. The proportions differ. Achu is okay with jig-saw while I am not so close to being ok with it.

Achu does play with his jig-saw set. Sometimes its after dinner/lunch with Ammumma. And sometimes he sits with his nanny. Poor nanny would have to set the puzzle while our little fella behaves like a boss.

So today we were having a Nanny-and-I-are-jigsawing episode. They had set right 2 out of the four Noddy Puzzles. And were they glad. Achu glad 'he' did it and Nanny glad its half way done.

Achu runs out of his room and asks me to come and see the result. I praise the duo. Tell them to work on the other two and begin to leave the room.

Achu comes to me " Amma carry me will you?"
I readily do the needful :)
He hugs me tight and says " Amma I need a jig saw of this"
Me :"What?"  
Achu: "Amma take a snap of 
- you bending to lift me
- then carrying me
- then me hugging you
and make a jig-saw for me"
Me: What an idea!!!!

Reels in my head 
  • Must see if I can find somebody who can do that for me
  • Nice idea for a birthday gift
  • Is my son missing me ?
  • Have to spend more time with him.
Update: While I was browsing for a background I found out that it wasn't a very new idea afterall and there are lots of ppl who have made a business out of it ...but hey for the Achu Household its still a moment of pride just that the 'invention' becomes a 'discovery' :D

    wow!didnt know it was possible and for a 5 yr old to think of it is "invention indeed!
    here,we dont like puzzles at all, so the pieces are used as veggies for the mock cooking sessions:)

    I love jig saw puzzles. I think thats one game I used to play with my kids. And they are quite good at it too. Yes, you can make pics into jigsaw puzzles. But, I have never tried it. Its a perfect Birthday gift! :)
