School Activity Update

Hello every one, i know i keep promising that i will b regular at posting some thing or an other but then i vanish like i never existed. once again i apologize. i know a lot of you have probably given up on me by now, i am not gonna make any more promises, ill just post when and as i can.
So a lil update on my life, my 2.5 years old has been taking up most of my time and so are her school activities. January they had an annual sports day, not that these lil kids actually did races or any thing but they had lil activities tat they did along with their teachers, it was super cute IMG_20160130_161506

I didn’t take too many pics coz off-course i was busy making videos of all the activities my lil doll was doing. i know i could get hold of the pics form the school’s website but i just had to CATCH the moment 😀
Once that was done n over with the school started preparing so the annual concert/function day. my Daughter’s class was acting on the nursery rhyme down by the bay and it was funny to watch her trying to sing it all day long hehe kids are too cute that way 😀

After all the acts, all the pre-nursery to Class 1 kids participated in a final song. so every one got to b on the stage at once:)
I so encourage kids to take part in such school activities coz i feel these things encourages kids to be independent and proactive also it brings out their artistic side and a feeling of belonging to the institute. i grew up taking part in all extra activities in the school and i am hoping to support my kids in doing the same.

I know this is not like my regular post but hey am a mommy now so there will be kids updates on and off which i am sure atleast the mommy followers will enjoy and would be able to relate to 😀

So how do you bring out the artistic/active side of ur kids? do let me know 🙂
Untill next time,

Take goood care of ur selves
Love you alll

Breakfast with the Mommies

Its funny how life changes and how we adopt that change and move on in life with new things and new priorities surrounding us. No matter how much w miss our old lives we start to love our new routine and adopt to it so nicely hat it doesn’t seem like a problem.

I am talking about the single verses married versus parenthood. how we once thought when single that this is the best life ever and how we will miss it, eventually after we get married we start to like the status better and we move on as a couple. people say once u have kids your life changes and yes that’s so much true but once again slowly we adopt to that new life style and fall in love with our lil one, the whole meaning of love changes, our priorities changes even our thinking change to some extend. What once was OK for us doesn’t work any more. we make new relations and new friends
i have been lucky in term friends. All my single-hood  friends or my gang are friends with each other, got married and stayed friends and now they have kids and we are all still friends. but in addition to that i’ve made new friends with my daughters class mates moms. 😀
Its great getting to know the moms and being friends with them. Even tough the school started just about 3 weeks back but a few of us really hit it off and today we made a plan for breakfast so that we can gather and get to know each other. It was truly amazing and the food was good too.

Reflux, heartburn & a few updates

Just last week i wrote a post about my preggy update
Today all i will talk about is another major symptom of 3rd trimester that’s bugging me and killing me like any thing.

Image Our very own HEARTBURN lol 

I never had an idea about what heartburn is untill now, n trust me its nothing one can enjoy. i’ve gotten so sensitive that even a lil fatty or oily or spicy stuff (i dont usually have spicy even generally) and my entire internals are boiling and burning. on top of that, the Reflux is getting really bad.

Last night i woke up coz i felt almost chocked in my throat with a weird burning acidic feeling and feeling so sumthing stuck in my chest. it was soo uncomfortable. i tried to elevate my pillows n stay on my left side so it may get better, but no such luck. on top of that, entire day today my throat felt that yucky acidic feeling arghhhh so not happy about it. but then again i keep telling my self that its just two months more and things might just get better. For now Gavescon syrup is the rescue, dat too dosnt help at times 😦
I think i need to shift to a total bland food for two months. May b dat wud help the burning n heart burn.
ImageUPDATES on my lil one
Well the baby has been clustered on the right side, which makes it almost impossible for me to sleep on the right, i get good kicks lol, Rest is all good, lil one loves to make pyramids on my tummy eehehehehe, its such a funny sight n hubby freaks out lol
by pyramid i mean the baby puts up its butt against my tummy wall n it stretches out so much that it almost luks like a pyramid/ sand dune hehehhehee
All in all loving every single minute of this time. (apart from the heartburn n refluxes n itching) 😛 hope it all gets better soon, or atleast gets bearable. 🙂

Hope u all are well n i hope to catch up with every one real soon 🙂
till then take good care of ur selves

Hugsssssssssssssss

Preggy Updates

Image

I have been thinking to write some thing about my  pregnancy for soo long but have been either busy or lazy or just lay off laptop. i know i said i will write updates and this and that, n but honestly most of the days i don’t even feel like sitting on net, i’d just check emails from my cell n that’s about good for me.  So finally i gathered enough will to write atleast some thing hehe

To begin with no matter how much i wanted to get pregnant i had NO idea this is what i will have to go through. you must be thinking am talking about all the symptoms women usually crib about but i was seriously lucky to not go through most of them. for instance i had absolutely no morning sickness, nausea or any of this first trimester monsters that most women dread about. i was eating n sleeping fine, infact if my Mom in law wudnt tell me to be careful and rest i’d forget half of the times that i am even pregnant lol
First trimester went by like the blink of an eye. Second trimester definitely brought some symptoms like the sciatic pain in my right leg (Oh god it was bad), itchiness and feeling hot as hell was. and then came a time when i cudnt even eat an egg for breakfast coz i wud instantly break into sweat for the rest of the day. so no more eggs for me for breakfast, i shifted to butter n bread only to realize that the burning sensation i get in my left chest is not my gall bladder instead is a heartburn LOL initially i thought i had gall stones lol. also i know i would have to get new cloths for my self just wasn’t sure when until this happened 😛
ImageSo i got my self some loose shirts made from tailor that i could wear n be comfortable in without feeling too much itchy n hot.

Now 30 weeks past, sitting in my 3rd trimester the symptoms i feel are itchiness (LOADS OF IT), feeling hot, heartburn and at times a little difficulty in sleeping especially when my lil one is sitting on one side.

Well the reason i thought of writing this post today was to share the great news that i finally went shopping

Image

I had been wanting to start shopping right after my 3rd month but i wanted to wait a lil longer, just to be sure, just to be on a safer side n just till i am sure of what colors i wanna get. That too took way too longer then i expected coz every time i’d go for an ultrasound the baby’s position wasnt “favorable” as i was told. It was a relief when finally i found out, but for every one else, they gotta wait till the baby is finally here 😀 that shall be another happy post on my blog, i dont promise an instant posting since i dunno how my routine will get but will make sure i announce it as soon as i can.

Image

During the last two months i also attended stitching classes, just thought an added skill wont hurt, it was only 8 classes crash course n i sorta learnt the basics of how to do pants and a simple shirt. not that i plan to make baby cloths but I had always wanted to learn stitching and this seemed like the perfect time to keep my mind off my self and get busy with some thing constructive. I do need alot more practice but i’;ve gotten the ropes so yayyy

Finally came the shopping days 😀 First i had gone with my mom in law to just chk out things and prices, then i went n got cloths, loads of them,even though every one tells me they get wasted coz baby grows outta it, but how can u resist those adorable lil cloths n body suits now can u???? (A).

I love the fact of how organized i am lol. Like even when i was getting married i had boughts my cloth atleast 4 months ahead of time and gotten them stitched when i still had 2 months left. I like to keep prepared before time, i hate to run around in a rush, and forget impt things in process

ImageSo while i had nothing else to do, i made a list of times i will need categorizing them into bedding, bathing, grooming, cloths, traveling and additional accessories. and i listed things under each category that i wanted with the amount of each item i will need. This way when i went shopping all i did was chk out every item i would get and in the end i had a clear picture of what all is left.I got most accessories like cloths n blankets, wrapping sheets, nail clippers etc., will get bigger stuff like crib n baby stuff drawers n car seat n other things like those, start of 9th month.

Image

As the time is passing now, am getting more n more excited, tired and impatient. I cannot wait to have my lil one in my arms, get off all the irritating symptoms and feel normal again, ready to begin a new chapter of life but at the same time i am really enjoying this time that i have while the baby is still in there. I love watching its movements and kicks and at times we play games too, our fav for now is knock n respond hehe i knock n the baby responds. So now that am mostly done wid my shopping and most things on my agenda list, i am going to sit back and enjoy this one month before i begin shopping for big items. For now i shall drink alot of water, milk and sleep as much as i can . 🙂

I honestly have no idea when i will write a post again but i think i have covered almost every thing in this one till now. So till you guys get a new update from me, enjoy this post n keep praying for all to go well for me & my lil one 🙂

Sushi Treat

Hello all
Just thot to post sumthing since it seems like ages

Today (10th July 2013) me n hubby made a random plan for sushi
Since I cannot have raw meat right now I ordered for cucumber sushi, while hubby ordered for cucumber sushi, tuna sushi n volcano sushi for trial dat was made of salmon, eel sauce n mayo topped wid crushed shrimp crackers.
Cucumber n tuna sushi came first in the platter but we were too hungry to wait for a pic of platter so I just took pics of wat all I cud hehe

Image

Didnt take any pic of tuna sushi but I just had to take the pic of the volcano sushi wen it arrived….. it was hugeeeee
Image

Since there was mayo in it as well it turned out pretty heavy. Outta 8 pieces Hubby could only finish 5

But I wanted to eat more n only Cucumber sushi wasn’t enough for my hungry belly I ended up ordering Chicken Taypanyaki wid garlic rice
Oooo wat a bliss I ate like I had been hungry for ages lol

Image

Image

Stuffed and satisfied wid out food, we headed to the ground floor after paying the bill only to b called back from half way for our complimentary fried ice cream dat was ready on our table. I dunno why we got a complimentary ice cream but who cares
It was pretty good, only if we had more space in our sinfully stuffed tummies, we wud have finished it all, but couldn’t lol
Image

Over all, it was a good outing n we really enjoyed ourselves. 😀
