It was Nepali Mother’s day yesterday, 16 April. As I have explained here before, it is on a different day than the one here in Australia.
As you know, I love celebrating anything in the Nepali way. I love the tradition and culture.
As it was a work day, after work I called my mum and AS called his mum to wish them Happy Mother’s day and to get their blessings. We wish they could be here every mother’s day but that is not possible.
With Chhori in my life now, I feel blessed to be a mom every day. Chhori makes me feel so great that being a mum is definitely the best title I have achieved so far.
So to celebrate the special day, I prepared sagun and Chhori performed the mother’s day puja in the Nepali way.
I strongly believe that we need to teach our children about our culture and tradition. We can’t just expect them to learn about it. We need to do our best to show them, create interest and get them involved.
I am so happy to see Chhori so interested and asking questions about the process.
I guided her and she followed the process with tika, sagun and gift. At the end we cut cake.
Then she saw the chocolate that was on the tray that she couldn’t wait for the whole thing to be over so she could eat it 🙂
It definitely felt amazing to have a little cute, adorable, beautiful angel wishing me on Mother’s Day.
And to all the proud moms out there, Happy Mother’s day. Hope you had a good one.
