A New Year Motto

I've been away from this blog for nearly 8 months now. I must admit i missed it.

2008 has been a super fast year, rushing along at breakneck speed. Yesterday it was January and today it's December. It's hard to believe that 364 days have passed by already this year.

I wonder why some years seem to drag by, boring, dull, time slows down, the days drag their feet. That happened when i was pregnant, in 2005. I was eagerly waiting my baby's birth in late December but the days passed by in slow motion!

The days, weeks, and months after my baby was born are a blur and i just seem to get flashes of memories occasionally. 2006, did you really happen?

But 2007 was a tiring year. My daughter, Sneha, was 1 year old, and constantly demanded my attention. I can only thank God for carrying me through those stressful days.

And then came along 2008 Express! It has whizzed past me at an alarming pace. Before i knew it, i was a year older!! Sneha turns 3 today, Dec 31st. And i bet 2009 is going to be nothing like i expect!!

So my motto for the new year: Expect the unexpected!!!


Wishing you a safe and secure new year. May God be with you.

Priceless Silver

I saw "Stuart Little-2" again on TV recently.

One thing stood out. Mr. Little tells Stuart about how every dark cloud has a silver lining.

Well, I've found mine.

When i am down or depressed, feel sick or plain lazy, If i'm upset or angry, or my day hasnt gone silver lining always makes me smile :)

She's so cute and cuddly.
She gives me kisses for no reason at all.
She beams at me, sometimes angelic, sometimes naughtily.

Her range of expressions amaze me. Her facial muscles are well-toned with all the funny faces she makes. She has a different face, a different expression for every emotion under the sun!

Even in the most desperate situation, i always thank God for her.

My silver lining, my daughter, is pure gold.

The beautiful process of GROWTH

Growth is essential...sometimes painful, sometime unnoticable, but essential all the same.

I see my daughter, i know she is growing everyday, every moment...and it is evident in the way she walks and the way she talks....picking up new words and new expressions.

Then suddenly i come across a picture of hers from when she was just an infant...Thats when the "growth" really shows.

Now, about me...the most noticable growth is that of my waist!

Shia's Gibberish

Here are some words that my daughter lisps...

Fa fa fly for butterfly
Min goose for Mickey mouse
Minish for finished (eg. when she drinks all her milk)
Shakoon for Shahrukh Khan (her fav person on TV)
Keenu for crayon
Katchu for thank you
Kaiss for thanks

and though her name is Sneha, she calls herself "shia" :)

My mom in law wishes there was a translating machine that could tell her what Sneha's gibberish means :)

Greatest Man in History

I read this in an internet forward that i received today. It is certainly food for thought.

""The Greatest Man in History

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.

Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer

He had no army, yet kings feared Him..

He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.

He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.""

I feel honored to serve such a God who loved me so much.

Two hands too less

Have you tried washing a 2-yr-old's hands lately?

I have two hands. She has two too. But one of my hands is busy carrying her. And her two hands act like four! What an equation........

Here i am, first i turn the tap on. She immediately turns it too so that the water rushes out too fast and splatters all over me. Then when i'm fiddling with the tap again, she reaches for the soap.

Wait Sneha....there goes the soap!

Then i pick up the soap, wash it, and soap her hands while she squirms and i dance and juggle at the same time.

Now is the part she likes best. She gets to put her hands in water to wash the soap off....and manages to partially block the tap with her fingers...the water splatters over me again!

SNEHA!!...Stop it mole (that's malayalam for daughter, not "you filthy animal!" like some of you might think)

Finally her hands are clean and all i have to do is turn the tap off. But wait...what's that in her hands? OH's the naphthalene ball that i put in the washbasin to keep out the roaches.

Dont tell me i have to go through all that all over again... :(

** For those of you who dont have kids, let me inform you that this pattern repeats about 5-7 times....a day!

*** For those of you who do have kids....just leave me a sympathetic comment.
