Rainbow colour🌈🌈🌈

Chhori is 3.5 years old now and she is getting so smart day by day. The other day, AS wanted her to wear a twinkle toes shoes which was purple in colour but lights up in different colours.

So the father daughter had the following conversation

Chhori : “Papa I want a rainbow shoes please.”

AS: “Put on these shoes (pointing to the purple shoe), it has rainbow lights, red, blue, pink, white and black.

Chhori: “No papa, that’s is not a rainbow” and started singing the song.

Red and yellow and pink and green, Purple and orange and blue

I can sing a rainbow, Sing a rainbow, Sing a rainbow too

That is rainbow papa, not white and black and other colours.”

AS: “Ohoo Sorry, I meant colourful shoes.”

Now who can argue with her as she is telling the facts?

I love to eavesdrop into father daughter conversation, it always manages to make me smile.

Take care everyone,

My little Ballerina 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

We have enrolled Chhori into Ballet class and she is over the moon.

She is a big fan of Emma wiggle and Angelina ballerina so when we bought her the ballet costume and shoes, she was so happy that she was dancing all day.

She loves to show her ballet dance (which she is yet to master) to everyone who come and visit us. She even tries to teach me the steps and she says that she is a teacher and I am her student  🙂


I know I am biased but she looks super cute in her Ballerina outfit.

Have a great week everyone.

Take care ,

Things Chhori says: May be she is taking photo with another flower 🌷 💐

One of the things you may have noticed following and reading my blog is that I take heaps of photos. Especially since Chhori came into our life, the number of photos I take have grown and I have thousands of photos of her that I cherish.

I don’t deny the fact that I take heaps of photos and I am glad I do as they remind me of different times when she was a baby.

The photos I see of Chhori when she was just a few months old always manages to melt my heart. I also have some great photos of our whole family that I treasure.

Anyway, while in Korea, we stayed in a hotel which had a big teddy bear and some nice flower arrangements in the lobby. One morning before we went out I asked Chhori to pose next to the teddy and the flower and she followed my instructions really well.

After the photo, I told AS that I will go to the loo before we head out.

While they were waiting for me, AS and Chhori were having a conversation and this is what happened.

Chhori: “Where is mama?”

As: “I don’t know baby.”

Chhori: “May be she is taking photo with another flower”.

AS told me that he was surprised to hear those words from our 3-year-old.

I guess she will be one good observer who will speak her mind in the future.

Love you so much my munchkin!

You look like a banana 🍌 mama

While celebrating the Nepali new Year, I was dressed in traditional yellow kurta.

As I came out of my room I had this conversation with Chhori

Chhori : “You look like a banana 🍌 mama

Me: (not trying to laugh) “I am so hurt” (making a sad face)

Chhori: “I am sorry mama. I look like broccoli 🥦 (looking at her green kurta)

Me: (laughing) “I love broccoli 🥦

Chhori: “and I love banana 🍌 and I love you mama”

She definitely has become quite cheeky and witty. I love our conversations and I love her so much. I want her to remain like this forever.

Take your yogurt mama

I don’t how kids these are so smart and clever.

Chhori surprises us every day with her smart brain and the way she communicates with us.

We kind of have an order as to how we say good bye before I leave for work. First it is a hug 🤗 then a kiss 😘 and finally a hi-five 👋.Then the following dialogues occur.

Chhori: “Have a good day mama

Me: “Have a good day baby.

This happens every single day. But the other day chhori added, “ and don’t forget your yogurt Mama.”

I normally take yogurt for lunch and lucky for me that day, I actually had forgotten it. I don’t know how she knew but she has a good eye on what’s happening around her.

Love her to the moon and back.

Take care and happy Friday.

I am big strong girl

Chhori is at this stage now that she doesn’t like to be called “Baby”. She is always going to be my baby but at 3 she thinks she is a big girl and gets annoyed if anyone calls her “Baby”.

Recently she moved from 2-3 years room to 3-4 years room in her childcare so she calls all her friends in 2-3 years room babies.

We know about it so we try not to call her a baby in front of her. But sometimes, AS and I will have a conversation and suddenly we hear Chhori saying, “I am not a baby, I am big strong girl.

Then we realised that we had called her a baby in our conversation unconsciously and she has picked up on it.

She also got upset with my SIL when she called her my “baby doll” and with my nephew when he said, “You are a baby so you can’t play this game.”

I hope this is just a phase and she will outgrow it otherwise we will be hearing “I am not a baby, I am big strong girl.” for a while.

Please do share your experience and please tell me this is normal phase of child growing up.

Take care.

Aama ko Mukh herne / Mata Tirtha Aunshi (Nepali Mother’s day 2018)

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.

Take care,
