Lost baby monitor and remote

Last weekend we put Chhori to nap and tuned her baby monitor camera on. Then we went to the lounge room to turn on the monitor so we can check on her. She normally just wakes up, opens the door and comes out but sometimes when she has nightmares, she will wakes up crying.

So this monitor has been really good for us since she was a baby but on Saturday we couldn’t find it at all. We looked at every possible place it could be in with no luck. While searching, we realised that the TV remote was missing as well and we usually place the two together.

Eventually we gave up as we couldn’t think of any other place they could be in.

After her nap, Chhori woke up, opened the door to the room and came out of the room refreshed and happy.

So we had the following conversation.

Me: “Chhori, did you put the monitor and the remote in the bin as we couldn’t find it.”

Chhori:  “No, I no put in the bin.”

Me: “Do you know where it is?”

Chhori: “In my room.”

We had checked in her room but we hadn’t found it.

At this stage, she took my hand and took me to her room. She went through her toys and it was in one of her toy box. Both remote and monitor sitting there in the box together.

I have no idea why she moved them from their usual place but now AS and I have to think of Chhori as a third person in our home and started including her in all the conversation. We can no longer discount her as a baby as she solved our problem  🙂

Did you have similar experience with your child when they were little?

Take care everyone,

My little princess 

We went to IKEA the other day and both AS and I were busy looking at furniture. After a few minutes when we turned around ,we found Chhori was making herself comfortable in a chair and reading their catalogue. Look at the photo. We know for sure that she is a princess  🙂 . My cheeky monkey!

Have a great day everyone.

No phone please …

Sometimes we learn so much from kids. As an adult we sometimes forget that kids are so smart and learn so much from their environment.

I mostly feel that Chhori is very small and forget that she already knows so much. She surprised us when she stared to join our conversations. Whenever AS or I ask a question to each other, if she knows the answer, she will say it. Sometimes it has caught us off guard but we love it as it beings a smile to both of our faces.

Lately we are giving her a lot less screen time so she can play with her toys and be active more. It is working well except that sometimes she will say “TV please mama”.  I see her pretend play with her cars, teddies and dolls. It is so interesting and surprising at the same time as she repeats things that we say to her like ” No baby ” or ” Eat more please” etc.

Yesterday, both AS and I were on our phones updating our grocery list and Chhori was dancing to one of her rhymes and suddenly she came to us and said “No phone mama”. I didn’t quite get it at first but when she said it again, I did and put my phone down. Then she went to AS and said, “No phone papa.” He obliged and she instructed both of us to stand up and start dancing with her.

Both of us could not help but laugh as that is what we usually tell her and now she was reminding us of that.

I am loving being a parent to this smart little cutie pie.

Do share any unexpected conversation by your kids. I am sure there are some fun and embarrassing ones too.

Have a great day everyone.

I feel blessed…

I am sure I am not alone in this boat. There are days/ week where you feel down and don’t want to do anything, meet anyone and feel as if your life is going nowhere. You just see everything around you and nothing is going according to your plan.

I am having one of those days and I feel like I need to jerking myself out of it and tell myself that I have many blessing to count and I should not waste time thinking about nonsense.

So that is what I am doing right now.

  • I am blessed with good health which so many people in this world wish for.

  • I am blessed to have loving parents who will do anything to make me happy and have been so supportive and caring throughout my life. I am where I am because of their sacrifice and love. I should never forget that even when I am down.

  • I am blessed to have a hubby who completes me in every way. He knows every small thing about me and tries his best to keep a smile on my face. I am so blessed to get a partner who is my love, friend and my life. Nothing can change our bond and I am so proud to say that.

  • I am blessed to have a daughter who is my world, my heartbeat and absolute cutie pie. When she hugs me, kisses me or says “I love you Mama”, the world becomes a happier place. She is a source of happiness in our lives. Sometime I become selfish and want to stop time as I don’t want her to grow up.

  • I am blessed to have a job which helps me to provide family with food, a roof on our head and life’s various needs.
  • I am blessed to be living in a country where I don’t have to worry about day to day stuff and don’t need to fight for our rights.
  • I am blessed to have friends and family who care about me and my happiness. Even if they may not be many, the care and love is real and it matters a lot.

Writing this is already making me feel better.

Please share your own list and hope that list can bring a smile on your face every time you are down or unhappy.

Have a great day everyone.

Accident and lucky escape

I want to believe that we are very relaxed parents especially at our own place as we know the house is baby proof.

Chhori has learned the climbing skill so she keeps on discovering new things to climb on but our place is mostly safe so we let her play without being very worried.

Last week, we went to visit one of our friends. We have been to this friend’s house multiple times and Chhori loves to explore their living room. She was climbing on a coffee table early in the evening.

Anyway we were all watching a movie and Chhori was playing nearby.

Suddenly, she decided that she would climb their shoe rack. Unfortunately, the shoe rack is the one from Ikea which was recommended to be hooked to the wall but it wasn’t.

We were really luck that AS was just near her and caught the rack so it didn’t fall on her. All of us were shocked for a while but Chhori was as cool as a banana. She didn’t scream or cry but was just surprise when I screamed when I saw what was happening. Within a minute, she stared to play with other things in the room as if nothing had happened.

But for us, we learned a good lesson to be near her all the time when we are out and about. As she is getting older, she has become more curious so we need to be very careful and watch what she is doing all the time.

I am more worried about our visit to Nepal. I can’t even imagine how things will work out there.

Do share your own experience and if you know how could we can prevent things like this happening in future.

Take care everyone,

My little helper

Chhori started walking independently a couple of weeks ago. It only took her a few days to go from a few steps to nearly running now. We love to watch her walk as it is so cute.

The fun part these days is when I return home from work. When she sees me entering the door, she leaves whatever she is doing and comes running towards me saying “Hi” and hugs me. I love these moments even though they happen every day.

Since she started crawling, we taught her to get stuff and give it to us. When she does we say “Good girl” and pat her head. It is fun to play with her like that and now that she has started walking it is even more fun as she happily goes and bring stuffs and once she puts that on our hand, she pats herself on the head doing the “Good girl” action.

The other day I was in the balcony putting the clothes on the line to dry. She came outside and started passing me the clothes from the bucket. I couldn’t feel more happier. She has started to become my little helper.

Long before I had kids, I used to think one day I will have kids and they will help me in the kitchen doing baking or cooking or any other house chores and now it has started. I know most kids hate to do chores when they grow up but I will enjoy these moments for as long as they last :). I hope we can raise her so that she will enjoy the chores and accept it as part of her life. If nothing works, I plan to bribe her but these days she just does it happily.

Hope she will stay like this forever as I am enjoying every minute of being a mum to such a cutie pie.

Do your kids help you out around the house? Do you give them something in return? Is there a trick to getting them to help you?

Take care everyone,

Is it OK for adults to wear children’s clothes?

I am sure I am not alone in the boat where you admire kids’ clothes and you want to wear them.

When I first came to Australia, I was really skinny so when shopping adult clothes, they didn’t fit me. It was a really disappointing experience but then went to the kids cloth store and bought dresses in large sizes. Believe me if I don’t tell anyone about it, no one will know that it is kids’ clothes.

Mind you, if you go to the larger sizes for kids, they are the same size as small in adult clothing which is what I wear so I see no problem. Not all the styles are adult appropriate but there are heaps you could get away with.

These days, Sydney has got lots of brands and they make size 6 clothes for most brands which fits me and I am very happy about it.

Anyway, after coming back to work from maternity leave, I felt like I needed to buy a few dresses so I started to look around. Funnily enough I found a few girls’ dresses so pretty and they were perfect as work cloth. I tried a few of them and I couldn’t let go so I bought them. I haven’t worn them to work yet but I am planning to. I guess I should keep my mouth shut and not tell anyone that they are kids’ clothing but I think it should be acceptable to wear them as long as it look good on me .

The dresses are high neck and knee length which is perfect for work. I prefer the colours and these materials are nice too.

I am thinking, in a few years Chhori and I can go shopping to the same store, won’t it be cool! :).

What do you think about it? Have you ever worn children’s clothes? Should I keep my mouth shut? 🙂

Take care everyone,
