3 most important values

Honesty โ€“ This holds the utmost importance to me. Nothing enrages me more than petty lies and dishonesty. I donโ€™t mind it, if people speak the truth on my face instead of finding reasons or excuses. The principles of honesty are deep-rooted within me. My mind goes back to an incident that had occurred, back…

Gundu updates..

I was reading my journal entries from a year back and realized I was such a harried mom at that point of time. The beauty of it all is, that I hardly remember any of that agony now. Time is such a healer. During those days, I always used to wonder, how on earth people…

Making Memories

It is strange how every day looks the same when you look from afar. Doing the mundane jobs that every day is filled with. What you need to do is look close. Close, because there will be so many moments of joy and gratitude that you will miss out otherwise. I am blessed with a…

The Birthday Bash

We had the birthday celebration for Gundu last Sunday. We had organized a Pooja, which was followed by cake cutting and lunch. I had a great time planning this first birthday for my darling son. I know he wonโ€™t remember any of it, but then what are photographs for? What started off with a discussion…

Me Time!

Music is food for the soul. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a leisurely hour to listen to music or enjoy it. At times I am so tired that any background music also seems like noise and irritates me. Long baths, with my favorite music playing in the background is something I used…

Travel Diaries – Mangalore

This year has started off great in terms of travel for us. In fact, since the end of last year itself. We went to Waynad with the sister’s family during the Christmas weekend, to Chennai during the Republic Day weekend and to Mangalore the last weekend. It may seem like a lot of travel to…

Pregnancy Diary – 18.04.2017

I was thinking today and realized that I am quite enjoying being pregnant. I was rather feeling sad today that I get to be in this phase for just another 45 days or so. Sure, the sitting, turning, bending, walking, everything takes effort and is uncomfortable. But the sensation of my baby wiggling, prodding at…

Pregnancy Diary – 20.03.2017

Okay, this is not going to be easy. ๐Ÿ˜ 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…

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…

Pregnancy diary – 14.03.2017

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…

Going by the ideal calculations, he should have…
