Cold and cough…enemies for most new moms

Last night we (daughter and I) had ROFL moments.For some reason she kept laughing and her laugh was contagious that I could not stop myself from laughing.Hubby was enjoying seeing the 2 important women in his life in the best of their moods.

All three of us were having gala time ,though it was 12 in the night and the little one was in no mood to sleep.

Somehow at around quarter to one she dozed off and so did we.At around 4 in the morning she woke up coughing and sneezing.Her nose was blocked .Some how we pacified her and she went to sleep again.

Since morning she is struggling from blocked nose,watery eyes and cough 😦

We have started giving her medicines and steam.

Its heart wrenching to see her struggling to breathe due to stuffy nose.Today afternoon she kept crying in her sleep as she could not breathe .I gave her nasal drops which helped and off she went to sleep.

But somehow when she woke up (about an hour ago) she had running nose with her little nose turned all red .Its so painful to see her in this state 😦

The medicine course is for 5 days.Hope she gets well soon.




Sunday evening..

Apologies for not  posting any stuff yesterday 😦 Will try to publish 2 posts today

Now that I am jobless I get big time frustrated sitting at home 😦

Monday to Friday I spend my time waiting for weekend so that I can spend time with hubby and I love to see him play with our little one.

But his weekends seems to be so full with buying groceries ,listening news (with Arvind Kejriwal and AAP being hot news),and playing with the kiddo.I feel so left out.

Saturday night was spent in cribbing,crying and getting angry that how he spends zero time with me.He got a cake for me but still my cribbing did not end as I was carving for some ‘me time’ with him.

The same behavior of mine continued on Sunday too.We thought of taking the little one to a park in her pram,we got ready but my princess decided to doze off.

We dropped the plan when suddenly hubby decided to go on a 2 wheeler ride(leaving her in the care of her dadi)

We went to a park,took a walk and headed towards ‘Reliance Fresh’.We had a plate of momos and parceled  pani puri for mil.

Got some groceries and came back walk.

Sometimes such small joys in life leave us so contended.Sometime what best we need is the company of our loved ones to uplift our moods.Not necessary that visit to a fancy place is required ,just a walk can also rejuvenate us and instill new energy within us.

It is was what I call as ‘A walk to remember’ 🙂

Makke (maize) ke dholke

Hi All,

Let me do a cheat post ,I am not getting any constructive topic to write on.Ya ya I do remember maya’s promtps but I am so hopeless to even write anything sensible so I decided to share this secret recipe from my mum’s kitchen and the best time to eat it is winters.



1.Makke/corn flour

2.Chopped ginger

3.Green chilies

4.Green coriander

5.fresh methi leaves ,finely chopped

.6.Baking soda

7.Cooking oil

8.salt to taste .

Add all the above ingredients except oil and knead a dough using right amount of water making sure the dough is bit hard.Leave it aside for some time.

Make small balls of this dough and flatten it from center.Make it in a shape of funnel.

Place it in a container.In a cooker add water and place the container.Place the lid without the whistle.

Cook for some 20 minutes.Insert a knife to check if it is properly cooked.The knife must come out cleanly.

Remove the container from the cooker and set aside to cool.once it cools down,cut the cooked dhoklas into bite size pieces.

Now in a wok add oil and white til (sesame) seeds.once it crackles add red chilly powder and add the bite size pieces of dhoklas.

Stir it once and remove it from the flame.

Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green dhaniya chutney or butter milk seasoned with mustard seeds and garlic.


Just for smile :-)

Last evening I took my daughter to my neighbor’s house .The couple has a cute little boy of 3 years.

He wanted to play with my baby (for this post lets name her ,M).I removed the blanket which was wrapped around her.

Now M was wearing a home-made cloth nappy (aka langoti).The little boy notices that and says

“amma M pant illaa,M shame shame” 

Saying this he ran inside and shortly came back with his own pant.He then asked me to make M wear that pant.

I was speechless ,so much love and care this little boy had .I smothered him with kisses.

His mom went inside and found that all his clothes were lying on the floor as he pulled his pant from the wardrobe resulting in all his clothes rolling down 🙂

Here is the pic of M with her A anna:


2014 Resolutions…

Wishing all my readers a very Happy 2014!

As is the trend ,let me start this brand new year with some resolutions:

1.Learn to drive 4-wheeler.Yes I have enrolled myself in car driving school.

2.Speak less

3.Try to ignore what others say.Even if I know what they are saying is wrong still try to ignore and move forward. Don’t waste  time in thinking that my feelings have been hurt.

4.Don’t try to correct others or teach them anything new.Keep your knowledge to yourself until asked to share.

5.Most important:Keep Patience

6.Have faith in yourself and believe whatever happens ,happens for good.God knows whats best for me.

With all the above mentioned points ,I am all set to enter 2014.

Wishing each one of you a golden year ahead.Stay blessed and healthy.
