Whacky Daddy

Long time no Zack tales here, Moo has hijacked this space, no? Anyways, its been 7 months since we have been apart and come October, Moo and I will be back in the thick of things. Heard from Zack that things are a bit dull now, the niece is missing me terribly ( yay ) and no short or tiny or long trips are being planned due to my absence ( double yay). But, but, but. Since Zack is now living as a bachelor daddy I do have some tales of his to share here 😈

Some momentous conversations as new parents:

I send him a pic of 5 week old Moo, she is sleeping sideways.
“She looks so bloated, I am scared, call the doc”
“That is what is known as baby fat, Zack”

“None of her dresses are fitting her”
“But you just got her new sets no”
“Yeah, maybe she grew overnight”
“Haha, because she swallowed a magic pill?”
“No Zack, that is what is known as a growth spurt”

“Whenever I ask you what is baby doing, you say she is sleeping”
“Yeah, because she actually is sleeping. Because of which I am chatting with you right now”

“Go for a long walk in the evening, leave baby at home and go, it will be good for you”
“Yeah, I want to, but Moo wakes up at odd hours, she does not have any fixed routine yet”
“Don’t be too attached to her like this, you should make some time for yourself too”
“I am her Mother Diary Zack and there are no other food outlets for her nearby in case she gets hungry”

“How many times do I have to tell you Visha, get her some toys to play”
“Arre, but she can’t even hold them, let alone play with them.”
“Then when will she play with toys”
“When you stop torturing me again and again with this same question”


You know what happened today

Today I went to the tailor,
I said, “How are you, all well with you”
He said, “Who are you, are you the same girl I know”
I said, “I am the same, just got a bit fat”
He said, “No no you got very fat”
I said, “Well, I am a mommy now, it will be like this for a while”
He said, “Don’t worry, you wont get fatter than this”

Today when I was exercising,
I found I could bend a bit more easily
It does not ache when I arch to the right
Nor does it pain when I twist around
Though jiggly belly is full wiggly wiggly
My mind is happily happy

Today I woke up half an hour early
I had planned it yesterday that I would wake up early today
It happened and I got very enthusiastic
I will go to the terrace and enjoy the pleasant weather I thought,
But it started raining heavily there and then.
I will watch some television show I thought,
But due to the rains the cable TV went off.
So in the end you know how I spent the extra thirty minutes
I visited my tailor.
