A Birthday Letter To My Son – 2

Dear Chintu, Last year when I wrote this letter to you, I thought I should try and write one letter every year, at least for as long as possible. So here I am on your second birthday, putting down my thoughts. I know I have been way too busy the last two months, with spending…

Standing up for myself.

So today I did something, which probably didn’t go down too well with someone and yet it made me feel better. All my life I’ve been a people pleaser, I try my best to be as accommodating as possible and see to that the other person is not hurt. What have I got in return?…

Gundu growing up

As I read articles about the changes toddlers will go through at the age my son is, I feel a bittersweet emotion. While I feel proud of all the skills my boy is mastering, I feel sad recognizing the fact that he’s growing up. Oh! It does seem so soon. 😦 He can now, not…

2018 – Round Up

I’ve done a year end post every year and this time I had almost skipped it, because I just wasn’t feeling like writing anything. Maybe it’s because of the low feeling that comes from the fact we’ve no plans for New Year’s eve or the first day of 2019. Infact we don’t have plans ever….

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 won’t remember any of it, but then what are photographs for? What started off with a discussion…

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…

Catch up post!

It’s been a year since I am on leave. The time to get back to work is close, I report next Monday. I feel so bad when I think of being 8+ hours away from my baby. It is so hard for moms. They have to choose between their career and being a mother. If…

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…

Welcoming Gundu Onboard

When the long wait ends with something so beautiful to hold in the arms, it all feels worthwhile! πŸ™‚ 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…
