When I Lose My Mind Over Everything: Is Having A Perceptive Child An Issue?

If you have been dropping over often here, you would know that I have two darling lovely little daughters, my precious monkeys as I love to call them, and they are truly truly my world and my everything. The older one is 7 and the younger one is 1 and the best part is that they even share their birthday...wow....I couldn't have asked for a better day in the whole year.....

Even though I love them the most and above anything else, there are of course times that I get exasperated. I am a full time mommy, with two full time jobs to manage as well, and I have been lucky enough to get the opportunity to manage my work option - work from home most of the time and head out only if absolutely unavoidable, that too at some very convenient times.

While that is a plus, it also has its negatives. I work mainly from my home, but the fact that I also have to simultaneously care for both my children is something that kills me through the day. It has taken a toll on my health, my happiness, my social skills, my peace of mind and almost everything. It is really difficult, trying to be a single parent to my kids most of the week and managing office and home too. I don't want to do it, but I have to and I know I will.

I know I lose my mind, but yes, I don't share it with anyone. I don't express my concerns and my worries, I don't shout or nag, I just shut down myself and stop interacting - just the bare basics that are required while I go about my everyday work.

The Sobo Spree: Call To All Moms And Kids On May 30th Mumbai

Displaying Sobo Spree Flyer(3).jpg



It's vacation time and I know just HOW hard it is to keep those little ones entertained....takes away all waking hours of the day just to imagine and create a full day of fun and interest and entertainment and learning....quite a task!!!

The summer vacations are also months when you have some really cool exhibitions, classes and activity weekends that cater to kids of all age groups. And it's really heartening to see other mommies come out and bring forth such activities.

So it was quite interesting when this mommy wrote to me, inviting me for this wonderful kiddie exhibition that she is planning to hold this summer vacation in Mumbai.

Date And Timing: 30th May Saturday, 11 am to 7 pm

Donkey Donkey Donkey: Whoooops !!!!!


image source

So the younger one has been speaking and I mean, really really speaking a lot - quite a sudden leap from how much she was speaking when she was 18 months to how much she is speaking now at 21 months....

She picks up any and every word and language and keeps on saying them on repeat mode.. So it could be a poem, a song, a laugh word, a regular come here kind of thing, objects, people, and even, yes, DONKEY....

No....wasn't me...I didn't use the word. It wasn't me who said it in front of her. Nope.....The 'other' parent used to call her 'donkey' baby just out of fun, and it was mentioned multiple times (by moi) that it would come back one day, from that very same 'donkey' baby.

And it has !!! So now, the younger miss suddenly gets up on her tiny toes, puckers up her mouth, smiles with those twinkly eyes and says - DONKEY DONKEY DONKEY DONKEY DONKEY!!! And yes, it's definitely not restricted to the 'inside' of the home. So you can imagine....

I have started the damage control, but let me tell you, at the present, it is wayyyy beyond control....so let's see how we fare on that....

And till then, well, let me get used to those looks......!!!

Happy Mother's Day Gift From McCain: A Sweet Surprise

 

A few days before Mother's Day I received a mail from McCain, telling me about a surprise gift they wanted to send me. It was quite cute and I thought the gesture was very sweet.

I have tried out McCain products earlier and my kids especially love the smileys and the french fries that they have. My personal favorite is the chilli garlic potato bites that is deliciously spicy and flavorful.

As promised, the package arrived right the day before Mother's Day.

Look at that...isn't it thoughtful? A beautiful Mother's Day card and a bunch of goodies hand delivered right at my door step.....It certainly made me feel special. The goody bag contained 3 variants of the McCain fryables, and guess what they were! French Fries, Smileys and Chilli Garlic Potato Bites...What?? Wow :)

This Mother's Day, Celebrate With Jabong.Com Giveaway!

http://incrementalsolutions.in/Tagin/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Saffron-inspired-sari.jpg



As a kid, I always loved coming home to my mother's smell of cotton sarees. Her sarees were always soft and beautiful, with an alluring smell of their own, one that made me feel comforted, secure, happy, and most importantly, at home...

As I grew up, I did not pay so much attention to that smell of the cotton saree anymore, and life as a Delhi youngster was more about catching the latest trends. And eventually, I moved on and moved away from the city. But one thing remained etched in my mind - my love for traditional cotton sarees, coupled with ethnic jewelery and ethnic fashion.

So when Jabong.com asked me to do a giveaway in honour of Mother's Day, what could be better than to ask my readers how their mother's sense of style has given them inspiration for their own style today.....

There is really no rule to enter the giveaway, but just a few basic steps.
