Celebrating 1st Anniversary of being a Stay-At-Home-Mom!

September 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Yes…. It’s really unbelievale that i’ve been a SAHM for the last 1 year of my life…  At times I feel that time just flew away in front of my eyes…. but other times I feel like I’ve been counting each and every minute for ages…

Anyways… altogether its quite ok for me I guess…

Before quitting my job I thought that being jobless (read useless) would completely affect my whole ego and everything… But I was left with no other choices too… I’m a family girl… (I’m not sure if 28 yr old lady could be addressed as a girl… :))  But now I don’t regret atleast…

I’m a proud SAHM..(i hate the word ‘housewife’!!!) and am enjoying what I’m doing. I guess thats what that matters most.

Hello Again!!!

  Its been a long time since I actually thought about writing a post for my blog…  I was rather shocked to see that I don’t have a single entry for August. L  L  It was just that I was caught up with something else… 31 days just flew away without me knowing…

 So now I’m here to make up for my absence in this blog-O-sphere… I’m not that sure how things are going to be. Next month we are planning for our vacation… So its yet another month of no-posts…  But what that really matters is that I should enjoy doing whatever I’m into for the time being… 

 So…this is a micro-mini-post just to announce my presence in this world of blogs… Sometimes  I wonder who all will be reading my posts… I guess there are some silent lurking going on…and I don’t mind because I am also one among them in some other blogs…

 I think it’s a good start for me as its my birthday tomorrow…  So new resolutions and decisions and hopes are always good to have…even though I’m not that good in keeping them…  J  J

 See you all….

1st July- Manu’s Birthday

July 3, 2010 Leave a comment

Happy Birthday  my dear Manu….

It was Manu’s second b’day. We had a small celebration at our home in our own way. This time we celebrated it ourselves without family n friends… Only candles. balloons and cake cutting. Little joys of our lives…
Manu was rather amused to watch his mom and dad doing all the decorations for him and having a fabulous time at photo shoot… He was just posing for the snaps. He reminds himself to smile at the flash… Sometimes he just wouldn’t pose and would go running to Appa for the review of photo which was just taken. On the whole it was a calm, cool and joyful day!

I’m in 24/7 Production Support

June 28, 2010 6 comments

I believe all SAHMs are on 24/7 production support! Not a single day to spare… Even if its a weekend, or  a vacation  or whatever… Moms, especially that of toddlers are always on their toes. No warranty period and no backup plan for SAHMs… 😦  😦  and there is no way that you can go back and edit some settings or fix the bug in the code for better performance!!!  Everything happens real-time…..and with a very high priority issue!  ***Sigh***

When I allow my hd to babysit for sometime, when I’m running some errands, I could hear them shouting and messing up things. I’m not bragging about being a super baby-sitter…but still I feel I’m better.

There is one thing that every SAHMs should master- Time Management.  I wish I was perfect in that. There is so much to do in a day…and that too if you dont get help from someone.

Anyways, thats just my thought for now…. I’ve to busy plan for my Manu’s b’day!

Just an update…

Last week just went so fast…with so many things…and updates were due pending.

Manu suddenly had a bout of fever.  Antibiotics had to be taken. I really don’t prefer taking antibiotics for kids. But he had tonsilitis and such situations can’t help. Initially there was a big defiance from him in taking medications. But later he got convinced himself that momma is not going to let him go without having medicines. Thank God it was not severe.

Another update is that one of my cousin got married. And the sad part is that none of his sisters could attend his wedding.. 😦  😦  All curse to distant living and visa problems…  😦

Yet another good news is that my best friend delivered a baby boy… I can’t wait to see their photos.

R being a doting father, it’s practically impossible for him to stay cool and calm especially when Manu is on his loose. Otherwise he is very patient and down-to-earth. From past few days Manu is having a potty-time problem. We are very much bothered about that as our little one never had such a problem before.

There are quite a lot of things which are not in our hands. May be we can just try to get over it or ease out. Whenever something goes wrong, or happens in a way not expected, R would always condemn on being such a hapless person. Even though he knows there are many other things which makes him happy, sometimes he just cant help getting exasperated…

Yesterday was one such day and I was trying to make him feel good. And in that gargantuan trial, I happened to say that he was too young to be a father. Needless to say how he felt… He was showing me sad smiley face every time  I looked at him. Thank God, today morning he has forgotten about all that and he’s hale and hearty.

Sometimes it happens…your actions or words just go beyond ones expectations… And we just land in a world of bewilderment!!!

Appa’s Little Man

May 9, 2010 Leave a comment

When Appa is around, Manu is more observant. He observes each and every minute details thoroughly and then imitates them the same way later. Manu would help Appa in carrying his socks to the shoe stand when Appa is getting ready for office. He rubs his tiny feet holding a pair of socks in his hands, as if he’s going to wear them. By any chance if he finds his own pair of small socks, he would do just the same. It’s amazing to see how he identifies and relates things.

Appa’s comb is yet another asset which Manu is very fond of. He holds the comb by its stalk and runs it over his hair just like appa does. He never forgets to brush-up his cute little lips, faking as his moustache…followed by patting the comb lightly on his palm to check if he has lost any hair strands. (Appa do it every time he combs, and will count the number of hair-strands he lost!)

Manu’s next big thing is to play with the laptop. Even if he is playing in the next room or watching tv, he would run to the computer when the start-up tone is heard. Then he would start pressing the keys or switching mute button or blue-tooth turning it on or off. Sometimes he just shut down the system itself… Eventhough its a menace when Manu is around the laptop, its fun watching him mouse clicking with his tiny little fingers or trying to plug-in the speaker/mike pins or pulling off the cable from USB port…completely focussing on what he’s doing….
