Quarantine birthday

#quarantinebirthday2020
.
I have planned plenty of surprises,gifts,decorations,party theme and what not for her birthday.
But as they say, Dont plan anything, let life happen!
.
So #lockdownindia🇮🇳 happened, and all my planning went in vain. God had some other plans in store. At first, I was really worried about everything, we had no craft supplies, no gifts, no new clothes for her. On the other hand she was all excited for her birthday. I tried everything but all delivery services were stopped. And no shops were open in our area.
Some how we arranged basic craft supplies and decoration materials. We decided to decorate a wall with her favorite @officialpeppa characters. That’s the most we could do to make her happy. So we did!
.
Woke her up at 9.30 am (the time she was born), took her to the decorated room and her expressions won our hearts. She was elated and surprised at the same time. Though we couldn’t arrange gifts for her, and she didn’t demanded that too!
.
Baked a cake for her and she was all happy.
.
Lesson learnt- Don’t plan your future, let life do it!

Too much of news?

Are you feeling depressed with all what’s happening around in the world?

Yes, We all know that people all around the world are loosing their lives, people not even getting treatment, cities in complete lockdown, economies all around the world has come to stand still, dead bodies are getting buried anywhere and everywhere without even last rites getting performed and what not. I admit its depressing to even imagine all this.

But admit it, its happening and we can’t do much about it.

We all are depressed, sad and worried about the coming future. For us, for our kids, for our parents and for our country.

But do you know the major factor which is driving all of us crazy?

News channels, print media and other news broadcasting channels. YES! I admit they keep us updated about everything that’s happening around, but not in a exaggerated manner. I agree that is their job to keep their channels running 24*7, but its our job to know Only what is required. Getting too much into it lead to so much of negativity.

How can you have a control over it?

  • Watch news channels only for fixed amount of time.
  • Tune in when they have headlines in 5 minutes show scheduled. (Oh yes, thats my favorite)
  • Read only heading of the news that may make you feel unhappy.
  • Tune into DD National channel if you love crisp,true and apt amount of news.
  • Download apps like Inshorts in your phone to stay updated all day long, That is the best app to know what is required.

This lockdown is already giving us new challenges to face everyday. From doing all house chores with no house helps, engaging kids all day long, dealing with kids studies and online classes to dealing with groceries requirements and what not. We already have so many challenges our way.

Avoid reading and watching too much of news.

Lets stay happy and positive.

Cheers!!!

Mish enjoyjdlais her bath time and I make sure to use the right products for it. For her complete skin and hair care, this monsoon, I use Gentle by Soap, Gentle Baby Shampoo and Gentle Baby Bath, from our trusted brand @himalaya.babycare
Himalaya BabyCare Gentle Baby Soap: This is made up of Olive and Almond Oil which helps nourish and moisturize baby’s skin. Unlike the other soaps it doesn’t dry the skin. Its natural ingredients ensure Mish has a healthy soft skin.
Himalaya BabyCare Gentle Baby Shampoo: Mish has curly hair so I have always used this shampoo and it has worked best. Himalaya Gentle Baby Shampoo is infused with the goodness of Chickpea and Hibiscus. Chickpea helps nourish baby’s hair and Hibiscus helps condition hair.
Himalaya BabyCare Gentle Baby Bath: Times when we are travelling we don’t carry a soap for Mish, that’s when Himalaya Gentle Baby Bath comes to our rescue. It is infused with natural ingredients like Chickpea which helps nourish baby’s skin and Green Gram that helps gently cleanse the skin without causing irritation. The consistency and the smell of this Gentle Baby Bath is really good.
The best part about all the above products is that they are free from harmful ingredients such as SLS/SLES/ALES, phthalates, parabens, alcohol, artificial color/dyes, mineral oils, and animal-derived ingredients. So, I can use them without any worry. Also, all the products are affordable and easily available. .

A late walking kid

A late walker

A late walker!
  •  Ur baby does not walk up till now?
  •  She is so big now, she does not stand on her own yet?
  •   Massage her legs daily, her legs are not strong enough to walk.
  •  Oh she is so weak, that’s why she can not walk.
  •  Go show her to doctor and get her treated, may be she has some orthopaedic problem.
These are the things I was so used to hear from everyone around. Why? Because my baby had completed 16 months and she still walked with support. But no, she is alright because she walks on her own on bed or bedding. She was just scared to walk on the ground , as she had fear of falling and hurting herself. (Every baby loves his/her life the most)
I used to feel bad earlier, because no mum can hear anything bad about her child. Then later I realised, when I know she is alright why should I bother? Then i made up my mind to turn DEAF EARS to all those who say negative and let it go.
Then, when did my baby started walking?
My baby walked finally on her 17th month birthday. Yes she walked after completing 17 months. Babies usually start to  walk around 9-10 months. My baby took double the time. Being a mother, i was over caring when it comes to her. Consulted two doctors for why she didn’t walk, is there any orthopaedic problem, are her muscles strong enough, will she ever walk and many other negative things surrounded my mind all these past months.
Everyone told me their ways of making her walk, and believe me I tried all of them, but nothing worked. We kept encouraging her to walk, but she didn’t. We took her to gardens so that she sees  other children walking, but she did not. And then one fine day, she stood up on the floor and started walking like a pro. Yes!!! We were shocked and elated at the same time. And its been 3 days, she is only walking and no crawling.
So, all you beautiful mothers out here, whose child is a late walker, or has not walked or stood up yet, believe me there is NO WORD LIKE LATE WALKER. Every kid has their own pace of growth, and each one of them is different. Your kid will walk suddenly one day, and then you will miss this cute crawling phase.
So Enjoy!
With love,
Sona
