Giga | A to Z in 100 words

Giga!

Or maybe perhaps gee-gah! Giga was baby T’s first word or maybe first sound.

This sound we heard first when he was about 3 or 4 months old.

This mother became a proud mommy that her child spoke a very intellectual word GIGA at such a young age. Signs of a techie in the making? Continue reading

Finding Nemo | #AtoZ in 100 words

School begins from Monday. Today is Saturday. We have not prepared our son for school.

Enter Finding Nemo.

Skip the parts where the Clown Fish nest is attacked and all the eggs have been destroyed, save one. Nemo’s egg.

At dinner time, we played this scene from Finding Nemo to help babyT see that the first day of school is going to be fun. Waking up early (while his daddy groans), walking (or swimming) to school. Meeting new friends, and the wise (manta ray) teacher. Jumping on anemones at play time. Exploring.

Stop. That’s enough running out of school boundaries.

100 Words- Week 6 with Mrs. Writes a Latte

Eczema | #AtoZ in 100 words

An itch here, An itch there,
An itch too irritating to bear
Dry, flaky, angry skin
Oozing water, burning ring

Walk in dust, itch itch itch
Ingest allergen, itch itch itch
Sniff a flower, aatchoo aatchoo
Can’t breathe all night, snore zzzzzz snore!

Tubes & tubes of lotion
Tubs and bottles of creams
Every brand, you name it
Bought, tried & tossed it.

Sleeping with 4 tubes of creams
Instead of pillows for dreams
One for the fingers, one for the toes
One the steroid, and one the nose

It’ll pass as I grow
Is All I want to know!

Eczema can afflict many babies from birth. It can be a very difficult and un-inclusive condition. Although not contagious it can be very limiting for the person suffering from it. Eczema doesn’t have a cure. It can only be managed. Life can also be very challenging for caregivers of people with eczema. My little babyT has eczema which in addition to his dairy allergy makes every day living quite a challenge. In the sheltered environment of our home, he is relatively episode free. But the outside world is a threat.

100 Words- Week 4 with Mrs. Writes a Latte

Cm52 | #AtoZ in 100 words

Adam cast one last look at the trophies lined up – a wizard in Biotechnology. He winced as the needle pierced him. The poison soon turned his skin black. His heart was already the same.

His dying eyes fell on the framed newspaper story, ” Dr Greaves wins Nobel prize Continue reading

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.’

mom was right, blog train, blogging challenge

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.

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. Continue reading
