Moana activity – Shiny crab Tamatoa

We love Disney’s Moana. Its been over a month and we have been watching the whole movie at least once a week. We get so lost in Moana’s Motonui and Te Fiti’s heart that we almost watch it in silence, in awe of all the green shimmering sea and Maui’s tattoos. Moana has us spellbound. So when I wanted to plan some play based Moana activity for my son this month, I thought “Why not playdough trays?”

Nursing strikes by babies – every parent’s worst nightmare

Heard of nursing strikes by babies? My son is now well into his toddler-hood. He is a good eater but of all the things that stress me out about his growing days is when he decides to be picky about his food. The first hunger strike when he was a baby baffled me. How could an infant who survived only on breast milk, decide not to consume anything at all. I tore my hair out and proclaimed myself to be the worst mother on this planet. Then just as it had arrived, it went away too and he was more than happy to go back to nursing like nothing had ever happened.

Nursing strikes in babies, and toddlers do occur. They happen for many reasons, can last from a day or two to weeks and there’s little you can do to pull them out of it. When they are ready they go back to normal again. Continue reading

Our favorite books this month – best books for 2 year olds

My 2 year old has an admirable book collection. His collection  boasts the best books for 2 year olds. He has over 100 books, all carefully analysed, acquired and stored by his mummy dearest, of course. In the course of #RaisingaReader I have seen first hand, how books have opened his tiny eyes to our world, delighted him, given him comfort and calmness and so much more. While I do share a lot about our book collection on my Instagram page – MommyingBabyT , I realized my blog doesn’t have enough about our books. So starting with this month – November 2018, I plan to write a post about our favorite books of the month. Continue reading

Top 5 family favourite Marathi series on television

Living in a Marathi household ever since my marriage, I have been exposed to many Marathi serials. In fact, it was one of the ways how I picked up the Marathi language so fast. And today when anyone hears me speak Marathi, they are surprised that it is a second language for me. I am quite proud of this accomplishment, all thanks to Marathi serials.

I wanted to share about some really amazing Marathi series on TV right now which are lighting up the televisions in millions of Marathi homes. Continue reading

Traveling with milk allergy – food tips & ideas

Here are 3 photos of my son Tasmai (babyT) on our annual ritual of a family holiday in Goa, India. He’s aged 9.5 months, 19 months and 34 months here. We (as do many people) have to do at least one trip to Goa each year and we are glad that babyT has joined in our fun too. When I look at this collage of pics from the 3 holidays however, I realize  how it is becoming increasingly complex to manage his food allergies (milk) and take care of his meals. Traveling with milk allergy is not easy but we did it and very well too.

Traveling with milk allergies can be a daunting task. This year our holiday showed us that it will be difficult for our child to travel and eat comfortably like normal people do, but it is still not impossible to find the right alternatives and have a good time. This prompted me to write this blog post so as to help others find support and help.

Gulabjaam – a mouthwatering movie not to miss

My love for food is well known in social circles. And to top that I married into a community who also love their food. In our house, the most common discussion is “Aaj jevaila kai karaicha?” Marathi for “What should we cook today?” We think of food in our waking moments and in slumber mode too. And the icing on the cake or the Kesar on our gulab jamun is that we don’t just love to eat, we love to cook it. So when people called us, all out of the blue, and said “You guys must watch this Marathi film called Gulabjaam” we knew we shouldn’t miss it for the world. Continue reading
