Chhori birthday celebration party

As I mentioned before in my post, we had Chhori’s birthday celebration in Nepali way and at her childcare. But we also decided to throw a small party for her. We thought it would be nice to celebrate her birthday among our friends and family.

Now she is at that stage that she understands the celebration and so she was looking forward to her Peppa themed birthday party. She would go around telling everyone who would listen, that she is turning 3 and she will have a Peppa themed birthday party.

We also decided to hire a professional photographer to capture the memories on that day and I am glad we did.

We did some family photo shoot before the party.

I had a table decorated with everything Peppa.

The table was full with lollies, juices, biscuits, cupcake and goodie bag. Chhori was super excited so see all the arrangements.

Around noon, guests started to arrive. When most of the guest was in, we served lunch.

It was followed by cake cutting, yes, a Peppa one.

To make the things fun, I had a few games planned for the kids and the parents as well.

We did the egg and spoon race, balloon race and bingo. We had so much fun as everyone laughed and enjoyed the day.

The day ended with bubbles all over the park. We had bought bubble wands and as the day was slightly windy, it was so easy to make a lot of bubble.

Overall we had a great celebration and Chhori was over the moon with all the attention, gifts and Peppa around.

She is a big 3 years old girl now.

Celebrating Mother’s Day

We celebrated Mother’s with home bake cakes and cookies.

Chhori is old enough to help me in the kitchen and it was amazing experience.

Chhori’s childcare send me a hand made card which was amazing.

Hope you all had great Mother’s Day celebration.

Chhori’s birthday celebrations

As I have mentioned before, we do not follow the Gregorian calendar so on the Nepali Calendar we have birthdays on different days every year depending on the position of sun, moon and planets.  So we celebrated Chhori’s Tithi birthday in traditional Nepali manner with puja and sagun.

Luckily it was a weekend so I had enough time to prepare and wasn’t too rushed.

I wore a tradition sari and Chhori wore a lehenga. She was so excited that she was turning 3 that she had been telling everyone she met that she is going to be 3 soon. It was cute to see her excited about her birthday.

Once everything was prepared, Chhori sat down and I started the pooja.

I started the pooja for Lord Ganesh and then pooja for to Chhori. I explained to her everything I was doing and she listened and followed the instructions. She didn’t complain or try to get up from her place for the whole time and I am super proud of her.

She got the sagun and gifts and she was so happy.

I am hoping our effort to show Chhori our culture and tradition will help her understand where her roots are and how amazing and rich Nepali culture is.

I made a small pink birthday cake to cut that day as I didn’t want her to have a birthday celebration without a cake 🙂

On her birthday according to the Gregorian calendar, I baked a cake and took it to her childcare. When she saw me with the cake she was so excited and started to show the cake to her friends.

The teachers had arranged the table for us to celebrate her birthday. She sat with her friends when we sang the birthday song for her and then cut the cake.

As childcare has a policy of no nuts and no chocolate I had made a simple vanilla sponge cake with fondant and it turned out OK.

If you are a parent, kid’s birthdays are so special and I hope Chhori will have a special one every year.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

International Women’s Day 2018

Today is International Women’s Day and it is a day to celebrate us, women, and have respect, appreciation and love towards us. Because everything starts from you and if you don’t respect, appreciate and love yourself, you can’t share that with the world.

Today I attended my first ever International Women’s Day Luncheon through my work and it was amazing.

The luncheon had many amazing women in attendance and the guest speaker was Anne Summers.

Anne Summers is an Australian writer and columnist, best known as a leading feminist, editor and publisher. She was formerly First Assistant Secretary of the Office of the Status of Women in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The speech was mind proving and made me think how things are hard for women in  their 70’s and 80’s.

The lunch was amazing with a choice of chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto , polenta, buttered spinach and truffles jus or Barramundi with creamed leek and lemon thyme, crisps eschalot and chive salad with apple balsamic.

It was followed by a divine dessert, Belgian chocolate fondant, Baileys parfait, golf feuilletine and passion-fruit caramel.

The afternoon ended with me winning the door prize.

Too all the women out there

Be strong 💪
Be happy 
Be positive +
Love 💕yourself so you can love others 💗

Happy International Women’s Day !!!

Hope everyone is having a great week.

I will buy you another one

I had never thought I would enjoy motherhood as much as I am enjoying it right now. Having Chhori was the best decision, hands down.

Not only has she changed our lives for the better but she has also showered us unconditional love. And she gives us moments like this where life can’t seem to get any better.

The other day I was in the bathroom doing my make up while she was playing in the lounge room.

I dropped my makeup on the floor and it made a loud noise.

Me: “Oh No!

Chhori: “What happened mama?

Me: “It’s nothing baby. I just dropped my makeup and it is broken now.”

My bronzer was all over the floor in pieces.

Chhori: “Don’t be sad mama, I will buy you another one.

I couldn’t stop myself running towards her and hugging her tight and kissing her,

She is growing up to be nice little person and sometimes I am sacred that she will grow up too fast. I am gonna enjoy her innocent childhood as much as possible.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Take care,

Life – Death and in-between

In a span of 2 years, I have seen so many of our dear ones leave this world.

It started with my MIL’s sister with cancer followed by my dad’s sister, cancer again. Then after a while we lost AS’s grandma due to old age and them my mum’s sister (cancer) and then very recently my dad’s brother (kidney problem).

Going through all this grief in such a short period of time, I started thinking about death more seriously.

I know death is the only thing which we all know is certain but still when our near and dear ones pass away, we are left with pain and grief. Just because we all know everyone is going to leave this earth doesn’t make our pain any easier.

But at the same time I am appreciating life more. I am trying to enjoy time with friends and family doing things I love to do and living my life to the fullest so if I don’t wake up tomorrow, I know I will have no regret.

It is definitely lot harder to do than I have planned but I am going to keep this in mind.

Life is definitely unpredictable and too short for egos in relationships.

Surrounding myself with like mined and positive people will make it worth living. I am making the most of my time, saying what I want to and doing what I want to do. Nobody should be taken for granted and it works both way.

Someone’s death is a reminder for us that life is shorter than we think.

Hope I could provoke your thought about life and death and see this world slightly differently as no one knows what will happen tomorrow.

Chhori turns 3!!

I cannot believe my daughter turns 3 today. Most of you have been with me on this journey from the day I announced that I was pregnant. Can you believe that it has been full 3 years since I introduce her to you all? 

I wanted to write a letter to Chhori to reflect on the first few years of her life. I hope she will read this one day and understand how much we love her and how much she has changed our life. 

Dear Chhori, 

I still can’t believe how fast time has flown since the day I first laid my eyes on you. 

Even before you were born, you were already a part of me, every second of every day, for almost 9 months. For this reason alone, Chhori, I will never, ever stop loving you for the rest of my life. 

When I was pregnant with you I was a little scared at times thinking about how the future would be but the moment I saw you, I was sure things would be ok.   

You were so tiny then, all helpless and fragile. I used to spend nights awake nursing you and just looking at you because you have completed me. I loved to carry you in a baby carrier with you enjoying hearing my heart beat and snuggling up against me. 

You evolved from lying on the cot, to sitting on your own, from carrier to stroller and from crawling to waking then running. Now, you’ve grown into a little girl who has accomplished so much. 

 

You are already potty-trained, know what you want to wear when we go out, sing along to numerous rhymes, dance to Nepali songs, can identify different shapes, colours, numbers, letters, and so many other things.  

You are this beautiful little soul. From you I have learned patience, I have experienced family, and I have evolved too. I am a better person for having you in my life. 

Every day is a testament to the wonderful person that you are, and Papa and I will always be proud of you. We love you, simply because you are our daughter.  

Happy Birthday Baby Girl. Wishing you a million days that reflect the possibilities you see. 

I love you with all my heart. 

Love,

Mama

We are having party to celebrate so will post more about it later.
