Menu calendar for Manu

May 4, 2010 1 comment

From past 1 month I’ve started a new habit of updating my calendar with the menu I provide for my kid. People might think its ‘heights of joblessness’!!!
But I sincerely feel that its a good idea for short-term-memory-losing-moms like me to ensure that kids are being properly fed. Earlier I was much bothered about this and now..I’m NOT !!!

I insist on providing a nutritious diet which includes vegetables, fruits, milk, fish, meat, eggs, pulses and grains in adequate amounts. Yoghurt is a part of his every-day lunch. And I prefer to give him eggs every alternate days. So far…so good…

My next mission is to fine-tune his daily routines…starting from the time he wakes up till bed-time. I know its going to be very tough.. Ever since I’ve tried to implement my plans on him, he would’ve started another way of doing it!
I think before I fine-tune him, I better tune myself to fit in that… One thing I’ve noticed that whenever I plan for something, I prefer to jot down in a paper or a book… (cons of having had a career in software engg…!!! Sigh!!!) And my plan would look absolutely fine in paper….(‘Perfect’ I meant!) until an attempt is made to get in sync with that…
Good luck to me…

A page from my diary journal…

A page from my diary which I could hardly resist posting out here… I could relive those emotions…

Sometime in the fall winter of ‘2009…

I’d gone for a coffee @CCD after a long time. I happened to see how crowded the campus is. I was just looking around for people, huge buildings, nice fountain deck near the coffee-shop, nicely curved pavements, lawns well maintained, weather soo gloomy…Everything was so perfect…

My eyes got tucked upon a huge gang of trainees. I could see them walking n running busy talking, or laughing at someone’s joke, gals giggling and some smoking. Some even found time enough to spare n spent in the corners or the shades with their dear ones.
Suddenly everything around got me a rare feeling!!! I felt I was missing something!!!
May be ‘friends’! I thought.
Yes true!!! Its friends. I’ve become friend’sick.
None of my friends are within my hands reach now. Ofcourse we do find sometime in our busy lives to catch-up with each other. But not like before.
How many hours….day n night have been spent lazing around talking n blabbering enjoying the life to the fullest! I miss those good old days!!! Time changes everything..Priorities too…

Looking at myself today… my profession, my life, my roles, being a responsible wife, a mother, a home-maker… How can I expect myself to spare much for ‘others’? Where ‘others’ meant more (much much more) to me once upon a time.
In my day-to-day life, I find myself busy with sooo many things, meeting deadlines, checking if my baby is growing up the way I expect him to, if my kitchen has all its groceries in store for the week, if my husband has his wardrobe ready till the weekend, If I myself am running out of something. Calling ‘Home’ n ensuring if all are doing fine, attending calls, making calls which I’m supposed to and at the end of the day, setting aside all those pile of things that I had to do and n put him to sleep and then trying to get some sleep for my own before he wakes up in the middle of the night n starts playing…..!
