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.

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,

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.

Take care,

And then she (Chhori) cried…

I wrote recently how Chhori has started childcare and how she was been great. It is sad to see that, she no longer runs to the toys or forgets about us as soon as we go inside the childcare.

I think slowly she has started to realise that, she needs to go to the childcare regularly and her reaction started changing.

Normally AS goes to drop her off so I can start work early and I pick her up a bit early.

In the last few weeks, Chhori’s reaction to childcare has slowly changed from no tears to lots of tears.

The first few days, she refused to let go of AS when they got inside the childcare. Then she started to cry once inside the childcare and now she refuses to eat her breakfast and starts crying as soon as she is in front of childcare.

I was really happy when we had no tears initially but that period is over now. It really breaks my heart that she has to go through this.

chhori-1

I know it is a natural stage of development and every parent has to go through this journey but this makes me feel so guilty and question our decision to do it in the first place. She is not even 2 years old and doesn’t communicate that well which makes it even harder.

I am glad I am not the one who has to drop her off regularly because I would have cried with her every time there is a drop off. Just checking with AS every day and knowing that she cried makes feel me so sad.

I feel so helpless; don’t know what to do to make it easier for Chhori. All the parents out there who have been through this please give me some advice/suggestions.

Take care everyone.

Happy 1st birthday Chhori!!!

If you have been reading my blog, you know that my parents have returned back to Sydney after 6 months in Nepal and I just stared work again (after a yearlong maternity leave) but the biggest news is that my munchkin, my heart, my life, is growing up so fast that she is turning ONE today.

This post is dedicated to the very special person in my life, my beautiful daughter.

It feels like it was just a few months ago that I announced here that I was pregnant. Then she came into our world making our life so colourful and lively.

The first time I saw her, I learned what unconditional love meant. I had never seen anyone or anything more beautiful. Since her arrival, she has brought so much happiness into our life that I will would never have it any other way.

Each day has been better than the day before and I know that the future will be even better.

Her first touch, her first word, her first smile, her first crawl, her first laugh, and her first step, everything is so special.

Her laugh has become our new favourite sound in life.

When she calls me “Mama”, I am the happiest person in this world.

“Happy 1st birthday to the child who stole our heart. You are the best gift that we have ever received and thank you for giving us a thousand reasons to smile every day.

Your birth brought happiness and joys. It reminds us of how lucky we are to have a cutie like you in our family. You are the most amazing little thing we have ever seen. Our little angel, may your special day and every day hence bring you as much happiness as you are bringing to all of us. (And please stop growing up so fast. :))
