Mommy T's adventures; bringing up Baby T

My mom was right

Once we become mothers ourselves something inside us suddenly lights up, almost like a bulb. And we realise how much our own (mother) parents must have done for us – bearing us, carrying us for 9 months and then for a lifetime. A deep respect for all the sleepless nights and days full of worry and anxiety arrives and with it a realization that ‘Mom was always right.’

For as long as I can remember, my mom has been constantly telling me ‘you will realise this only after you become a mother yourself.’ And I also remember laughing at this statement of hers and responding with ‘I’m never going to be that kind of mom.’ Oh, but how wrong I was, because turns out I am absolutely that kind of a mom.

Out of the many gems that my mom passed on to me, my most cherished ones are the ones she told me about self-care. Since my theme for 2018 is all about SELFHOOD this seems like the perfect topic to share all those instances where my mom was right. Continue reading

Books, Blocks & Behaviour | #AtoZ in 100 words

When babyT turned 1 I felt like SuperMom. I had successfully managed to keep a tiny human alive & kicking after all. When we went to visit our Pediatrician he told us Books, Blocks & Behaviour should be the focus of our parenting.

While the first two concepts were clear we were quite intrigued. We were sure our “behaviour” was fine. Babies now begin to form their personalities & imitation was the best way of doing that. He said, “So watch your words, actions & attitudes.” Soon babyT had learnt the S@$! word & we knew we needed to behave.

A short and simple way of writing, seeking inspiration & learning from each other. And challenging – because it must all happen in 100 words. Plus a picture, perhaps.

Alouette | #AtoZ in 100 words

Alouette was one of the first rhymes I sang for babyT. Even Twinkle Twinkle didn’t come as easily as Alouette did. I never understood why and maybe it is part of a bigger plan.

Alouette is a French rhyme for children where someone wants to pluck the feathers off a lark’s head (la tete,) beak (le bec,) neck (le cou,) tail (la queue) etc. Pretty inhumane but don’t call PETA just yet. It’s quite a handy rhyme to teach basic (human) anatomy. And today Alouette, Gentille Alouette is one of the most loved & most hummed rhymes sung at home.
