A Search Expedition – #ColgateMagicalStories

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” – Albert Einstein

If every parent knew the importance of imagination, they would never limit their young one’s mind from flying high. As a parent, and not a very creative one, I have always believed that books are the best avenue where I could let my kid’s imagination bloom. Very diligently mostly at bedtime, I read to him, and mime the occurrences of the story to my son. When I received the #ColgateMagicalstories package, I knew this was an opportunity of a different kind but of the same consequences. There would be a story nevertheless, yet this would be nothing like what Nick would have heard earlier. This story had to be made up by both of us using the pictures provided at the back of the package. Continue Reading

11 Times When Mrs. Funnybones Was Bang On

posted by Mommy Tincture October 8, 2016 5 Comments

They say that there’s no perfect way to parenting. I believe that parenting is a continuing course which no one can ever graduate.

When I was introduced to Mrs. Funnybones – the book, I was told that it’s a rather simple read yet has a lot that resonates with every Indian woman/mother. I read this book on supposed vacation at my parents’ place, which actually turned out to be just a change of location because I was still running around the entire house trying to keep track of what my kids were up to.

Humor Bites #3 Applying Reverse Psychology

posted by Mommy Tincture February 20, 2016 0 comments

Let me tell you guys that managing a home, a job (though partial productivity) and a super-energetic toddler can get to your nerves, especially when you are into the 24th week of your pregnancy.

My tummy is suddenly bulging out into an obvious baby bump, displacing my center of gravity . I feel like hogging all day yet there is no relief to the reflux in my digestive system, which I keep in control with the help of prescribed antacids. More than my husbands long working day, it is Nick’s long playing hours that keep me awake until late into the night.

This happened on one of those rare nights when I had this humongous task of putting Nick to bed all on my own and alone. Reason? We were at my parents place where Ajay was to join us a weekend later.

Free Will Of My Little Devil

posted by Mommy Tincture February 17, 2016 0 comments

One fine day last week Nick started throwing tantrums that he didn’t want to go the school. I thought may be he is finding going to school very taxing after the 3-day break that he had to take due to his viral fever. But I observed that since then every morning he has been extremely reluctant about going to school and would start crying the moment I would drop him off at the school gate.

This behavior of his got me worrying as he has been going to Montessori for almost 10 months now, but never did I find him unenthusiastic about going to school. Rather all this while he has been be extremely excited at the prospect of meeting his friends and the outdoor play time at school.

Kids sometimes go on to do or say such things that you find it hard to comprehend how the young uninitiated mind works. Nick too at times does or says stuff, which sends my heart into mini-seizures. I have decided to documents such instances here, for everyone to read and enjoy.

P.S. – I hope Nick doesn’t hate me for this when he grows up and discovers this blog.
