Using the gun

…to shoot bullets πŸ˜›

  • I am loving this stay at home mom routine of mine. Everyday is the same, still it is different – one day water got over, the other day Moo made a ruckus while having her bath. She wanted to use the mug and pour water on her by herself and started screaming off when I did not allow her to do so 😐
  • Her nap times have reduced to a great extent. Earlier, she used to sleep off after lunch for a good two hours, which gave me some breather to finish the pending laundry or kitchen work. Now she hardly is asleep for more than half an hour during the afternoons. Her grandparents’s siesta have gone for a complete toss πŸ™‚
  • Because of Moo, we now have a steady stream of people coming over to see her. Neighbors mostly, apart from relatives. She takes some time to warm up to new people, but afterwards she is comfortable in their presence.
  • I am so poor in socializing 😦 We got an invite to a kids birthday party in a nearby apartment and I could not even make small talk with any of the moms over there.
  • I wrote in a journal after a very long time. I started off with what happened lately and went off-tangent, reminiscing about college days πŸ˜€
  • I keep making to-do lists everyday, but hardly finish them off. So the list keeps on increasing. Started with 2 tasks on Friday and today I have 6.
  • In the mornings, Moo wakes up first. Then she will wake me up and then Zack. What he will do God knows, but when I come out from the bathroom after my bath, the father and daughter duo will be sleeping soundly πŸ™„
  • “Do not wake up the sleeping dragon” – is what I keep on hissing to Zack, when he has sudden bouts ofΒ affection for Moo and would want to cuddle her. This mostly happensΒ at 12 or 1 in the night.
  • During her evening play time with her cousins, we now have sibling rivalry at full force. Me playing and entertaining Moo is not being taken lightly with the other kids, who are sulking and complaining that I do not play with them like earlier. It is cute and sad at the same time πŸ™‚
  • The niece is hounding me for new stories and I inadvertently let it slip that I will tell her the caterpillar story once she and I have some private time. So she makes sure not to disturb me when I am doing my chores, but keeps on checking with me on regular intervals and reminds me my ‘God promise’ which I made to her πŸ˜†
  • I want to take up some new hobby. Any ideas?

  1. I love random/bullet posts πŸ™‚

    Lol at father-daughter duo sleeping again, I think Zack is trying to pass on some gyan to Moo on that subject πŸ˜€

    Managing a house is a big deal. I sometimes wonder if I will ever be a better stay-at-home wife. I dont think so.

    Awww! Your nieces must be missing all the attention they enjoyed before. In a way, its glad to know you have such a strong bond with them πŸ™‚ Over a period of time, they will understand πŸ™‚

    • I wish he passes the complete knowledge of sleeping to her πŸ˜€

      I thought the same too πŸ™‚ But you never know, without trying, right?

      Its mayhem some days, like a zoo filled with humans 😐

  2. Cute post! πŸ™‚

    ‘Do not wake up the sleeping dragon’ is what my mom tells us when the OH and I have sudden bouts of affection for Bubboo when she’s sleeping. We go on to kiss her cheeks, which invariably wakes her up. πŸ™‚

    Bubboo sleeps for at least 2-3 hours at a stretch, except if she is hungry or irritated. So, I get time to finish off my chores. God only knows what I’ll do when she grows up a bit and starts napping for shorter durations.

    Ask Zack to work his magic on Moo and make her sleep for longer durations na? πŸ˜€

    Hobbies – singing? dance? quilling? hand-made jewellery? scrapbooking?

    • Hehe, dragons are so kissable na πŸ˜†

      During the first 4 months, Moo had a very nice sleeping routine, which gave me lots of time to rest or finish my tasks 😐

      Ah, I wish! She is like a rabbit, never in a place, even while asleep.

      I joined the blogging marathon! So Jan is occupied πŸ˜†

  3. hehehe… Bath time fun!!!. So difficult to hold her in place now.. She likes to push the mug down and empty it every time I fill it with water and sometimes she wants to jump into the bucket!!!!

  4. Wow, never knew one could look at multitasking and the hardships of handling an infant and running a house in such a positive note. You are doing great Visha! πŸ™‚

Would love to read your views :)
