“Touchwood” and “Jinx”- Do they actually wok???

July 27, 2010 Leave a comment

I have heard of it since my childhood and really I don’t intent to say anything “for” or “against” it.  I believe (would rather say pretend to believe) that I’m not that superstitious. But practically…there’s a lot more to it.  I prefer not to say certain things (good ones obviously) about Manu or hd for that matter, to strangers or far relatives.  Its not that I’ve had bitter experiences because of that…but just a mindful ritual…  I’m happy that I’ve never put or used any anti-jinx thing so far…

But I should admit that,  every time I’ve said my son is having proper sleep at night…he would take maximum number of breaks in between his sleep that day!!! How can I explain???  So I always make up my mind to reply as it sounds somewhat like not-that-good-or-bad.

“Touchwood” – Yet another ritual that we (me n my hd) follow at home. Deliberately or unknowingly we don’t know. But I wonder if such things really works or not…  I just let it go. Never think too much over it! The more you think, the more complicated it becomes…

(P.S.  I’m addicted to use more ‘?’s and ‘.’s and ‘!’s and so on… Purpose not defined and habit not alterable!!! :)) )

What Have You Planned for Your Child?

July 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Yesterday we’d gone to the hyper market for weekend shopping of groceries and other items…  As usual we all three were having a good time there. While we were about to leave the mall, some sales guy approached my hd for a kid’s package. His introductory question was so intriguing as well as inviting…”what have you planned for your child?”.

Every parent would have made umpteen plans for their kids, I’m really sure about that. But when that guy asked us just in a casual way, we both were completely taken in. Generally we never used to pay attention to such promotions and the like…

The deal was all about some children’s books of Greenwich Publications. There was a collection of books for kids starting from 0 months to 6 years, with a variety of fun books, novelty books, story books, puppets, parent’s guide and a lot more. We have seen such books many times…but not all in one… The difficult part was the cost for that book. Its a way too costly package…. but any book-loving parents would go for it…just like we did! I’m not that much into books, but hd is a book-lover.

 While that guy was demonstrating the different books, dvds and all, I was curious enough to look for the names of authors and the publications… I was actually toying the idea of googling it, once we are home. I never thought hd would right away opt to take it home… But he did! And for me, my joy knew no bounds… I had planned to introduce books for my little one already. Earlier, he was not that interested in books and he always used to tear pages off. But recently he started showing a li’l inclination towards pictures, stories and particularly small books… So it was all going perfect! I’m paying that he doesn’t cause much damage to the books…coz I know that ts guaranteed to receive damages anyway! I just hope that it gets in installments….

5 things about My HD

July 6, 2010 Leave a comment

My HD and me are so different in so many ways….

Here is a list of 5 such things where we stand different.

  1. He hates junk food. Even the sight of pizza, noodles and lays would drive him nuts. But I love them like anything! If I have tomato sauce as well, then I would die for it…..                                                                                                
  2. HD believes that Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day….blah..blah Day…  are only Archie’s/Hallmark events!   Yes you thought it right!!!    😦   😦  poor me!  : (                                                                                                                               
  3. I am a sleep-O-maniac, while my hubby dear’s sleep pattern is in bits and pieces… At any given night he would atleast wake up twice or thrice between his sleep, and I will be blissfully sleeping.                                                                                                                                  
  4. He is so fond of his electronic possessions while I don’t even bother about them…  He can be seen dusting them and wiping them so often… I wish I could adapt to that sense of feeling for my kitchen possessions!  😉  😛                                                                                                    
  5. I love watching Zoom channel and all such non-sense celebrity news…..  He hates me for that… he hee heee 😀  But still, I find them very entertaining and funny!
