Hallo-best-ween ever !

So, its only taken a lil more than a month to come back to write another post,Progress,shall we say?

The last quarter of the year is always busy, what I look forward to though and love about it most is the merriment and festivity ,the madness starts obviously with Halloween , finding the perfect costume for your kid although I admit it must be much easier to dress up your kid when they're not really hanging down your neck hankering for any particular one . 


The above picture is so on point coz I remember his first Halloween he was a bear , I wanted to go with the quintessential, overused pumpkin costume but a cuddly bear he was and it just made sense . Year 2 he was a monkey , an apt description of what he was the whole time . This year too it was easy peasy , with his obsession for trucks , cars and trains I knew it could be either of those and I'd have a happy ecstatic toddler. and he was beyond excited too, to be Thomas the train engine, delayed excited I mean coz he didn't really want to dress up at all at first and then the kids arrived, in hordes and he liked the whole I'm in charge of handing out candy till it wasn't as much fun and and he wanted to go trick or treating too, and then we did .

It was the best Halloween to date ,watching him stride fearlessly yet finding my hand when the ghoulishness scared him, wishing everyone in his teeny tiny voice and sighing after he barely covered like ten houses, I just had to write about it , even with Christmas around the corner , just as I want to write about his 3rd birthday and our anniversary , because these are the moments I want to remember from this year , these are the moments and memories I want to cherish !

Hellooo , is anyone there ?

Of late I've been told by a number of friends / fond readers of this blog that they miss my writing and to be brutally honest I've missed writing , not for lack of time though but lack of energy . 

Believe you me when I say I have tried a couple hundred times to sit down and write and I've barely made it past the first line , ok I admit brazenly that it was also coz I'd be lying down with my eyes glued to the idiot box, in stay at home mommy land this phenomenon is called conservation of energy thanks to the fact that the only muscles required for this activity are my eye muscles . The rest of them need / can/ must take a brief rest !

I remember categorically telling myself , back when I was a newbie that maybe its just this first year , once my boy starts sleeping through the night I'm done , the deal with the devil is done.. I'll be sleeping better , eating better , getting more / some / maybe a minute to myself but like they say the only thing that prepares you for motherhood is being a mother . Now , almost 3 years later , I'm not so naive , I'm only looking at being this tired maybe a few more years , maybe till he goes off to college or if insanity prevails and I add another kid to the mix then maybe I'll accept being tired forever . 
    
Bottom line being .. Yes , motherhood is tiring , its being exhausted to the very marrow of our bones but I know , you know ,we'd do it all over again in a heartbeat . 

But this post is not about that , its about blowing off the dust and clearing the cobwebs , grabbing a cup of coffee ,make that a pumpkin spice latte (cliches are allowed all year and esp during fall )  and penning down moments , moments that will soon be memories but first Coffeeeeee !!
Grab a chair , I've plenty to share !!

Love Byte #4 - Love is being pregnant .

Lawrence Housman said ,
"If nature arranged that husbands and wives should have children alternatively , there would never be more than three in a family. 
I find the above so hilariously true coz we go through hell and back with all that pregnancy brings us , nausea , vomiting , heart burn , back ache , swollen feet , sleepless nights , constant need to pee and more , we moan and groan persistently and yet there is unequivocally a sense of power , a magic in being able to create and give birth to another life, that keeps us coming back for more .. 

Of all the myriad reasons there are two that made me love my pregnant self , the first was hands down the baby kicks , right from when they're lil flutters that make you smile to the time they become jabs that make you grin and wince at the same time , they're like a constant reminder that we're not alone , not now , not ever !!
The other being the husband's compliments .. he's stingy when it comes to those, but not then and every time he would say I was glowing and beautiful , it would make me blush like a teenager .. 

Having said that , this may not be a universal sentiment and I agree no pregnancy is sheer bliss, mine wasn't either but comparatively I had a much easier pregnancy .. either that or one year of child rearing has given me irrevocable memory loss..

What was your favorite part or memory about your first time pregnancy ?
