A Birthday Letter To My Son

Dear Chintu, I was reading an article on tinybuddha about how it is the little things that actually matter in life. All this while I knew that I wanted to write down something for your first birthday, maybe a letter, a blog post or just a journal entry, which I may show you some day…

Pregnancy Diary – 20.03.2017

Okay, this is not going to be easy. 😐 Well nobody ever told it’s going to be easy. Maybe it was just my over-confidence. As if the pain in the ribs wasn’t enough, I slipped in the bathroom today to further pull the same muscles and have been struggling with the pain ever since. I…

Pregnancy Diary – 16.03.2017

I don’t know what it will take to prove to people that my rib bone may actually be fractured and that I am in immense pain. Just because I am trying to manage everything and going about doing the usual things, everyone assumes that the pain is gone and I am all fine. Well, I…

2017 Round-up

So it’s that time of the year again, when I get off my ass and wipe the dust off my blog and write a year-end round-up post. Well, this year I at least have a valid reason for being busy – my Gundu. This year 2017 is always, always going to be special. Our bundle…

Journey so far

Been so long that I feel disconnected. I don’t see some of my favorite bloggers writing anything either. 😦 The last four months have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride! Trust me no matter how prepared you think you are to be a mother you will be caught off guard. It is surprising…

Okay! Doesn’t look like anybody has a solution to this. I am tired of scrolling through endless forum conversations with people discussing how each of them have a broken rib from coughing, but nobody gives a clear solution as to doing what will reduce the pain or the urge to cough. I am tired. 2…

Pregnancy Diary – 02.03.2017

“I wrote these posts when I was expecting. There’s always a fear associated with sharing things publicly before the due date, which made me hold back from posting them back then. However I would like to share them now.” I am not sure, why I didn’t think of this before. I wanted to make a…

Welcoming Gundu Onboard

When the long wait ends with something so beautiful to hold in the arms, it all feels worthwhile! 🙂 Yes, after 9 long months of growing fat, feeling hungry, vomiting, waddling and dealing with a variety of emotions – happiness, worry, anxiety, anticipation, my baby is here! Going by the ideal calculations, he should have…

Z – Zeal

For once, without sounding boastful, I would like to give myself credit for lasting through this blogging challenge. The zeal with which I took up this challenge was much more when I compare it to the last time I took up the challenge. I was also more at ease when in comparison to the last…

Y – Yummy

Have you ever given it a thought? No matter how much we curse the summer heat, the best things that nature offers to you, is during summer. While winter strips of the trees, leaving them bare, it is during summer that you will find the trees dressed in their best green, blooming with the prettiest…

X – ‘X’

Remember way back in school, how you had the task of finding ‘x’ in Mathematics? It took on so many roles. ‘X’ could be the simple number of apples to a value in an extremely complex equation. But the best part about the whole thing was, if you derived it logically, you could always find…

W – Words

Words have so much power. Words are so beautiful. They can express all that you want, just the way you want it. Some people have a way with words, they just string them together and it becomes poetry. Though I have always been a person who prefers prose to poetry, I still can’t stop admiring…
