A little insight
I am an avid thinker. I try and make a difference in the lives of people around me. I make people laugh. My blogs might seem more on the serious side but don't let it fool you into thinking that I am a serious person. I am known more for my quick wit and ability to tickle ribs. I am also very passionate about parenting.
Anyway, as you read along, try and comment. It might just encourage me...

The weekends go by in a blur! My husband leaves no opportunity to rub it in my face as to how much I am missing out on in life. He woke up at 6 am and went to play football. Got back at around 9:15 only to have tea, read newspaper, bathe, and have breakfast. He headed out at ten to play badminton. As he reached the lift, he told me not to expect him back before 5 pm. Now is he lucky or what!!! I wanna go out and toss a ball, play badminton, go for a trek with my friends. Boo Hooo!! Where is all the fun in my life??
Neha keeps tossing some funny stuff my way. The other day this happened:
I was busy pottering around the house, vaguely aware that Neha is mumbling something. Did not pay too much attention really. Then she asks me, "Mamma, are we Indians?"
Me: "Yes, Dear. Of course we are." (wondering what this is gonna lead to)
Neha: "Then you are my sister?" (Shock and perplex written all across her face)
Me: (Equally puzzled) "Come on. You know I am your mother."
Neha: "But the Pledge** says that - All Indians are my brothers and sisters."
Then I did what my motherly instincts indicated that I do in such a situation. I rolled on the floor and laughed!!
That kid of mine really throws these googlies at me every once in a while.
** The Indian Pledge. She says the pledge during school assembly.
Have a nice day!!
