Right from my heart

Make the most

Posted on Updated on

of the opportunity is my motto rather than complaining! 

Yuvan and me had to wait for his vaccination turn with his doc and our tummy’s grumbled as well.. We took this opportunity to get away to a nearby food court for a relaxed breakfast – just me and him! Bonding can happen anywhere anytime and the opportunity is always there.. This applies to everybody I guess:-)   Instead of complaining about the pitfalls of others (which everyone will have) take the opportunity and celebrate thier goodness! 

   

Coffee and nap

a perfect combination for sanity! I now know for sure – for me – Coffee helps in healing! A morning date with just me and it helped me to sort things in my mind… I am glad I have figured out a few ‘healing theraphy’ units thats works for me!   

Thankful for the reassurance..

I have been plagued my mixed and some unexplainable thoughts these two days and have also had some guilt rides… 

And then, God had his own way of reaasuring me and comforting me! 

 Yuvan may not know/realise the one hour or so grocery shopping with him today, where he entertained me with his funny and silly jokes and his stories about his badminton camp; the whole 10 mins of him engrossed in a cococola game while I sent him away to find his cereal, his little (recently increasing) ‘growing up’ pranks and the ever insistent carrying of grocery bags, has done a world of good to me after being disturbed by ‘donot know how to explain thoughts’ over the past two days! But… I know through these little acts God has reaasured me! What a feeling!! Finally, a sense of relief!! 

Recently, I have started to inculcate in me the habit of looking back and being thankful for every little thing I HAVE! And I am starting to realise very  slowly, steadily and more confidently…     Today, I am thankful for this reassurance and these little acts of kindness showered on me which really and definitely has made a difference! 

On a rainy day

Posted on Updated on

in Phuket; we decided to venture out of Karon; out of the cosiness of the resort for bit of squeezy noisy fun at Patong!! 

And.. I enjoyed something that has always been my stress buster throughout – anytime…but as a pure indulgence today.. 

 Chocolate (cake) and my caffeine fix together after a long time.. On a rainy day outdoors added to the pleasure…

Why I say Caffeine-fix? ‘Cos… I love coffee but I am a tea-person on a day to day basis! But coffee fixes my mood and also helps to bust my stress! Today had nothing to do with my mood… But pure indulgence as I said!

I am thankful for all the little things that made my day including this:-) 

A complete cracker – A boy’s thoughts of a school holiday!

Yuvan came up to me with his ever favourite Diary of a Wimpy Kid book and insisted I read the pages he pointed out! 

My reaction after reading – ‘Rolled Eyes!’ and I laughed out heartily!    

     

But I am glad that he treats me as his friend and shared this with me and we laughed together! I am so happy we read together!!

After a tough week or so, this has been such a reassuring moment to know that your parenting has been good and we can achieve a lot more together!

And he showed this to me too and said, ‘Amma… This is sooo you…’  

We both laughed out so loud hysterically!! I feel sooo good!

I am thankful to God for this bond and Yuvan… I wish we can be like this throughout! Love you little man!! I am super happy that he is able to share what he feels right out of his heart to me! 

I am going to try and make an effort to be a more fun mom! 

Retrospection

A simple train ride – A friday evening – only myself me – driverless – front compartment – my train of thoughts…

 An efficient cycle that is perfect; useful for everyone; yet its own cycle is just endless with more and more expectations; noone appreciates its for  its perfections but flaws noticed!  

A milestone match !

Yuvanz passion is cricket and sometimes he does go over board .. For some reasons, we had to change his coach but he still plays for the same team in the league under his previous coach.. There has been a month break for the matches and that’s exactly the same time he started under the new coach.

Hence, today’s match was an anxious one as I awaited to see what improvement Yuvan might have done overall. Surprisingly, his new coach was also one of the umpires for the game.

Yuvan showed an overall improvement interms of discipline, managing himself independently in a match situation, and offcourse improvement in all departments of the game .. Over all, content I am and he is happy too and the highlight is he got a wicket in the first ball he bowled and one of the visitors asked how old Yuvan is, looking at the unique variety he bowls in a single over! I am happy for him ! He finished with two wickets (almost three) great fielding and improved batting !

The chief umpire also praised this match as the best he has umpired in the whole league 🙂 what a good thing to listen to and he also mentioned that the Dragon Boys (Yuvanz team) played really amazing with just 8 players in the team!

I am glad they all played together as a team with everyone doing their part !

The umpires were also encouraging all the kids from both the teams and his coach has also has given his tips to Yuvan after he saw him play:-)

I hope this dream of Yuvan comes true in the future!
