Lately, I have been bed-ridden and apart from my lovely pack of boys, there is something else that had to my rescue – TV. I am not much of a TV person, myself, (we don’t have cable) but there are a few shows that can light me up or intrigue me to a good healthy level of distraction. Here are my favorite shows streaming on Netflix and Amazon (irrespective of their genre): Continue reading “Current favorite TV shows”
No memes, no explanation. These are few of the many strange yet ridiculously hilarious things I caught myself doing in the first few months as a new mom. I got some down but I still struggle with a few. Let’s see:
- Swaying back and forth to pacify or soothe yourself
- Driving way too slowly when the little one is with you in the car
- Sitting with your child behind when someone else is driving
- Waking up in the middle of the night out of fear, and playing it cool
- Checking if your baby is breathing properly, again and again
- Singing that one song the entire day, even in the middle of an important conversation and getting annoyed about it. [Bingo was his name-o!]
- Singing ‘ABC’ and ‘wheels on the bus’ in your sleep
- Lots of clapping and weird funny noises. Lots of them.
- Reheating the same morning coffee cup at noon cause you couldn’t finish it in one go
- Celebrating with a warm shower, favorite pair of pajamas, and a glass of wine after the baby falls asleep
- Then, regretting the celebration/excitement cause it won’t let you fall sleep
- Fearing the doorbell or a knock would wake the baby, even though the baby is wide awake
- ‘Please shower!’ begins your to-do list
- Forgetting the diaper bag
- I once tried to open my house by pressing the unlock button of my car keys. Yep, that happened!
I am sure this is part 1 of a rather long list but one thing that tops all lists is the abundance of love we have for these little humans we’ve created.
Until next time,
Please spread love & be kind,
I woke up to the US on the first day of 2013. I landed in Los Angeles, my new home and I was filled with mixed emotions. I missed home but at the same time, I was thrilled for a new adventure I put myself into. I go ‘Kimmy Schmidt’ on most thing. So, here are the top 15 ½ culture shocks I observed in my 4 years of staying in and traveling around this beautiful country:
It is a known fact for all those who ‘know me’ that I am a bit of an organizer myself. I like lists and plans and what I like more than lists is the moment I get to strike tasks off of it. No matter how chaotic my personal life was, I always made sure I had a productive day in terms of my professional life, rather professional development. Sometimes I made it through but sometimes I fell apart like a house of cards. Continue reading “Every day is not a good day”
