Kids of Today 
Reyaansh eats everything except rice 
Every time we force him, it turns into a ugly tantrum & various reasons surrounded with why he does not like rice 
Today we tried again with fingers toes crossed, Well we sort of succeeded 
But today’s reason mid meal totally baffled me. 
Rey - MA there is a lot of rice in my plate 
Me - rey please you have to eat all that is in your plate 
Rey- MA rice makes me fat, you want me to be fat 
Me- Shocked & Speechless 
Obvious to us all he has overheard our conversations. All about how we don’t eat rice or bread or cut down on sweets. 
Daily I explain the importance of each vegetable, fruit, grains etc he consumes as to how important & essential it is for our body. But somewhere the concept of Fat & Thin has creeped into his innocent mind. •Let’s emphasise on the importance of eating each & every seasonal fruit vegetable grains etc. • Make it fun & talk about how our body or body part will benefit from the particular food or food category. •Draw a fine line between snack time & main meal time •Healthy Snacking is most important 
Skip salty sugary processed snacks •We follow 1 strict rule at home - “No Special Request in the week” 
Means - whatever vegetable, pulses or proteins are made we all eat the same. This teaches the kids to eat all types of food. •Yes my house is no boarding school- we do indulge in our cravings once a week over the weekend - in short we cater to ours brats request of a pizza or ice cream/ chocolates etc 
Snacking options we stick to 
1) Seeds & Nuts- Reyaansh loves snacking on sunflower,pumpkin seeds along with mixed nuts. 
3) Fruits/ smoothies- always 👍👍 2) craving for potato chips- we choose sweet potato grilled with herbs and garlic 
3) Snacks on the go for post or pre classes- 
@themumumco
@slurpfarm

Let’s keep it simple & healthy for kids. The concept of judging people or themselves over their physical looks is a strict NONO 
Fat or thin is not of importance, but living & eating healthy is.

You are perfect the way you are!

#tbt Reyaanshs 2nd Birthday Party 
Simple decor, coloured cream cakes, chips, home made food, magic shows is what summed up birthday parties at our age.

Times have changed & so has the trend in birthday parties & it’s no cake walk. 
A new mum & a complete novice in birthday parties was stress enough for me two years back, but at the end the party was a success. 
Looking back I learnt some valuable lessons

1) Always book the venue way in advance- Living in #mumbai & having a monsoon baby, we chose the venue in advance & kept the venue central for all our guests with travel time of max 30mins in heavy traffic. 
2) Hire a party planner experienced with kids party planning. 
3) **Before zeroing down on a particular theme have two back up ideas/ themes always ready. 
4) ** Do your homework- regarding the theme of your party, especially if you are not hiring a party planner. This will help you to sync your ideas with decorations, food, returns, games & gifts.

5) The “Cake”— Make sure to chose a nut & fondant free cake, safe for all Kids. Always do a taste test of the cake with your pattiserie. 
6) Return gifts- again keeping a budget here is important & syncing the theme with the return another, along with the use & utility of the gift for the child.

7) Always keep 10-15 extra return gifts to avoid falling short at the last minute.

8) Menu- I personally prefer a mix of buffet & live stations for kids as they can be cooked to a kids taste & choice. Pasta, Dosa, Chat(for the mummies)

9) A good photographer who along with pictures, can also produce a few seconds video montage of the complete party. 
If living in #mumbai • Hit #crawfordmarket - it’s haven for all a-z party supplies & gifts of all kinds. • Sona Stores, hill road, bandra is perfect for arranging & organising games for kids party (if not opting for a party planner) • @partybucket.in & is your answer for a perfect party planner • @loveandcheesecake designed the most delicious two tier pirate cake along with a complete sweet corner consisting of mini cake pops, cookies, & chocolates as per the theme.

Leaving toddlerhood & entering the preschool age is exactly what defines a 4 year old. 
They 💕 to talk, interact & listen to reason. I am loving this age, seeing so much of change in Reyaansh. • He has become more independent like getting ready by himself, brushing his teeth, wearing his shoes. • His imagination is in hyper drive - telling tall tales & making up stories • He has started understanding sympathy, sadness & pain • He has developed an understanding regarding day to day life- house, appliances, food etc. • Behaves like a “Tiny Adult” with big words & even bigger thoughts & actions. 
This age is seriously Fun for parents - we are a team mummy & Daddy! 
My most boring chore is no more boring thanks to my darling 4year old. •

We were at mumbai”s Oldest & most famous fishing village - 
#sassoondocks for the “Sassoon Doc Art festival” by St+art Urban Art Festival @startindia who have transformed  Mumbai’s Sassoon docks into an exhibition space with graffitis, street art styles & art installations. 
At first I wondered how Reyaansh would like this & wether he would understand anything. 
But Am happy I took the risk. He was in awe of the art work, it stimulated his  mind - the colours, graffiti, sounds, lights. From large portraits of koli fishing community to environmental message with its depiction of plastic bottles floating through the ocean.

His questions never stopped & I loved answering each & every one of them. 
The exhibition is open to all from November till December 30th 2017

30 artists from around the world have given a colourful makeover to this 142 year old docks. 
We give this art festival a full 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Great family visit for all ages & all #mumbaikar 🧐

We took a weekday off to do something we love the most. #cooking 
Beautiful #november weather & an early morning boat took us to “The World Away”

Chef Moshe Shek a very familiar renowned name in the culinary world is the man behind this fabulous place- away from the hustle bustle of city life,closer to nature in #alibaug, a cooking school which also converts into a venue for private events. 
The day starts by an introduction to the cuisine & recipes by the chef himself, followed by a healthy breakfast before we start cooking alongside moshe. 
We opted for the #mezzeplatter Class, learning different types of #hummous , #babaghanooj#pita#couscous#labneh#baklava#salads & much more- right ratios, fresh & natural ingredients, the science involved in getting the textures right. Recipe to clean & healthy eating. 
The place is surreal connecting you to nature & its produce. “A World Away” is your answer to take your mom, your partner or simply your girlfriends for a fun cooking adventure. 👩🏻‍🍳 👨‍🍳 #toddletales#toddletalesfinds#cooking#cookingram#mumbai#mumbaimoms#cookingclass#cookingwithlove#chefmoshe#aworldaway#culinaryschool#fresheating#healthyeating#alibaug#loveforcooking#loveoflearning#momtogs#foodie#foodlover#foodblogger#foodpassion

Every Child is an Artist 
Imagination is the Beginning of Creativity 
Sticks have become swords, Blankets transformed into superhero capes. 
Reyaansh loves to use props to enter the world of make-believe, his imagination is in hyperdrive. From a super hero to a firefighter to a chef, police officer etc.

We love Pretend play as it allows Reyaansh to explore new roles, resolve problems, & negotiate relationships. 
Play scenes last for hours & sometimes even days. 
We have started keeping a box of props handy- old shoe box, baskets, old toilet paper rolls, old clothes etc to help Reyaansh to Travel to his fantasy world. ••

Countering a fussy eater by building excitement and anticipation around food. Now whoever says playing with your food is a bad thing, doesn't know a thing about trying to feed a toddler! Rudy's school has taught me a million  things in these 6 months - the #Montessori approach of allowing the kids to explore & understand is beyond amazing. 🍃 A couple of weeks back my son started to shout that he wanted beans. I assumed it was related to his school cause we usually get such demands post school hours. I went grocery shopping and got him a bag of mixed beans (mixed channa, mixed rajma, and different dals) We spent a couple of days sorting them by colours and shape until we got thoroughly bored & couldn't do the smaller beans. 🍃Then  came the stage when we saw the early morning cook (also lovingly known as SHHHHH aunty - cause she works the pressure cooker.) We have a baby size pan just for his food - we gave him the pan asking him to cook the beans just as his SHHHH aunty. We still love it but now offer our beans every morning to the aunty to make it for him - we of course have to go buy a fresh set of beans as we don't wish to eat the ones that have been severely toddler-handled! 🍃 Following our previous post of planting spinach leaves. We have seen them sprout and are anticipating their maturing to feed papa Palak Panner/ Spinach Cottage Cheese as promised!  So we water and care for them everyday. We shoo away birds all the time.🍃 Rudy goes vegetable shopping with his nani and chooses his meals. The whole process of choice, to paying & recieving the veggie bag is too exciting. 🍃We are enrolling ourselves into a little chef class over the weekend, nuturing our obsession with cooking a little further. Also, the organic mud can be replanted so we are eagerly waiting to get done with the spinach so we can plant some beans in them.

I always wanted generosity as a habit & to become a personality trait with Reyaansh. 
The concept of Sharing is Caring does not appear overnight. Thus we started with baby steps when Reyaansh was 1.5 years old. 
There are days when he happily shares his toys, food or belongings with friends & family, & times when he refuses to. But we hang in there! 
We try to teach him through examples- by being charitable ourselves, sharing ice-cream, household chores, games which teach team work & cooperation. 
We also encourage him to give his outgrown toys & clothes to orphanages almost once every few months. 
Every time Rey shares we celebrate with a pat on the back. •

Breakfast Wednesday’s 
Early morning school + running late + cranky kids, refusing to eat their breakfast 🥞 🍳 = A Nightmare 
Let me share my go to recipe which brings an instant smile & a full tummy

Banana 🍌 Chia Smoothie 
1 banana 🍌 (medium)
2 tbs rolled oats
1 tsp chia seeds
5 tsp ground cinnamon 
1/4 cup natural yoghurt 
1 tsp honey 🍯 
3/4 cup light milk 🥛 
Add a few sprinkles of - cocoa powder/ shaved 🍫/ powdered nuts like almonds or walnuts

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend for about 90 seconds. Add a few sprinkles. Smoothies ready... Smoothies are a wonderful way of getting picky eaters to drink up & eat healthy 
Bananas are high in potassium, tryptophan, B6, Vitamin C, manganese & fibre.

Chia seeds are a super superfood packed with iron, potassium, vitamin C, fibre, omega 3 and protein. 
Milk & yoghurt give you a boost of calcium. 
Can replace milk with almond or soy milk.

It’s strawberry 🍓 season, so we can add 🍓along with 🍌 to this smoothie. 🍌 🥛

Impromtu weekday holidays call for innovative #playdates with our energized toddlers. Rudraansh and his friend Shivanya were house bound for 4 days as school was shut. We decided to take advantage of the situation and our mommy friend planned a trip to the zoo as a weekday morning wouldn't witness much traffic or crowd. So we decided to pile on heading to the #bycullazoo; now now don't kid yourself that I would be gushing about the animals  as there are very few. Well for 2 year olds who have a miniscule attention span this wasn't a bad option.  For Rs.50 any open space in Mumbai is totally worth it; then seeing a couple of animals live is only an added bonus. My truck obsessed child got to see a cement truck up close and personal as well - the ultimate fan boy moment! Highlight of this trip were the elephants and the newly added penguins🐘 These kids were excited seeing the animal statues itself 🤣 The fact that we sat on a bench and fed the kids their lunch under the open skies was a nice feeling. Now carry your own food for the kids or else aerated drinks and flavoured milk is all the options you have. Would I do it again yeah maybe cause you hardly get to do such adventurous things in Mumbai ever. Other things you can do with toddlers involving nature... Check Bombay Natural History Society, Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Banganga or Elephanta Caves.

*Stress Awareness” 
In a barrage of rubbish 'days' which are purely marketing gimmicks, today is a genuinely important one - Stress Awareness 
Stress induced illnesses are no longer an urban myth, it is an evidence based fact. Catecholamine mediated spikes in blood sugar and pressure, hyperacidity, dyslipidemia, mood disorders, generalized fatigue and anhedonia are well documented.

There are multiple solutions available today, but being aware is half the management.

1) So, nominate a *StressRep* today, someone who picks up on your stress levels and has a right over your schedule to help you reload :)
This can be anyone-your staff, spouse, child, pet or friend.

2) let your *StressRep* tell you when to take a break and don't hesitate to Switch On and run, swim, play, exercise, watch a movie, practice Yoga, clean up or Switch Off and just sleep.

Remember
1) The importance of dealing with Stress, can't be Stressed enough.

2) The More you Meditate, the Less doctors Medicate. :

My Curious Chatty 4 year Old 
Everyone at home is lately under the scanner. A particular favourite now is the "wh" words: Where are we going, Mom? 
When will we get there? 
Who are we going to see? 
Why isn't Dad coming with us? 
Reys vocabulary is exploding, & he wants to practice using words to probe his world. Intellectually, he’s beginning to understand that there are reasons for things — & he wants to know what they are.

Mums enjoy this phase & make sure to keep answers short & sweet. If you notice that your 4 year old is curious about a particular topic, refer to a book or hit the 📚 library to fuel their interest. ? ?

Rey & I love to read, but our all time favourite is to read about #wildlife - Different kinds of animals, birds, fishes, mammals, reptiles, amphibians. 
Our latest book is a complete 3-D puzzle “Safari Adventure” of the Savannas by @silverdolphinbooks

The books talks about 15 animals (small & big) about their habitats, eating, surviving skills. 
What also entices the kids are the 15 animal play pieces along with a play mat for creating their own safaris. 
The book is for kids 4 years & up.

If you share the same passion like us, do not miss out on this adventure. 🦁 🐘 🐍  A special thanks to @foodmaniatic for this exciting book

How safe are our kids? 
Recent incident where a 4 year old girl was raped by a peon in a posh mumbai school's washroom. 
We as parents shelter our kids as much & even more than we can & send them to school with utmost faith in the school management regarding their safety & wellbeing. 
Parents who are working, or can't be there with their kids 24x7 depend on their domestic help, crèches, schools, playareas etc. Times are changing for the worst & no one is safe. Talking, explaining to kids about good touch/bad touch, scream when in danger is very important, but also keeping in mind how vulnerable our kids are. Most of the times the perpetrator is a well known friend or an acquaintance or a family member. 
This is not the first incident of rape that has come to light, such incidents have happened in the past in many prestigious posh schools & have been curbed to come out into the open from the fear of losing the schools reputation. Such crimes have a soda bottle effect, as fast as the news flares up, the faster it dies down- & life moves on. But not for the victim. Some scares never heal.

Saving, sheltering such perpetrators makes one party to the crime equally, also suggesting that we, as people have failed our own. 
Today our shout is to all schools, institutions & our government, we scream for Justice. A Capital Punishment is what we demand. Punishment that will make perpetrators shiver with just the thought of committing such a crime. 
We demand safety of our women & children in our own country. Let's stand united & spread the word

We 💖 Exploring & getting Dirty - 1 with Nature 
Kids of today spend much less time outdoors compared to kids 20 years back. 
A child’s normal behaviour from the start: babies continually put their hands, feet, & every imaginable object in their mouths. Older kids love digging in the dirt, picking up worms, rolling on the ground, catching frogs and insects etc. This natural behaviour is likely designed to encounter more microbes and subsequently train their immune system to react to it accordingly.

Recent research shows that this is detrimental for our children’s health, there is a direct link between lacking diverse microbes in a child’s “gut” to potential chronic conditions like #asthama #allergies #obesity #diabetes & even healthy #braindevelopment 
While in nature, allow your children to touch anything they want (within reason), including dirt, mud, trees, plants, insects, etc. 
Most kids have this innate desire to get dirty, but in their modern lives this needs to be nurtured. 
Do your child a favor and encourage them to play with dirt! :

Which other mothers here are a little careful of the language in the books they read to their children and the words they teach your children. Recently, i çame across a book with a story that said the word 'Stupid' in the title of the story. Frankly i was horrified at the sight of that word while reading it to my two year old. Especially since he is at the stage of repeating every word we say. I do understand that outside influences are strong enough to teach him these words sooner than later. My sons school has altered the Wheels on The Bus - Baby on the Bus goes "waah waah waah" to "giggle giggle giggle." The theory is baby should not associate with a negative emotion as he is the baby of the house. Its time the publishers of children's book especially have a decorum of words appropriation for children. By definition Stupid is having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense. Now who all want to explain this word to our children, running the risk of also instilling a possible negative insecurity in them at the same time. We believe that publisher need to be a lot more careful with their proof reading. Letting go of such things in #yalit is acceptable to a certain extent but in children's literature is not good.

Newborn & Acid reflux 
it's truly heartbreaking to see little infants not sleep nights, not feed well etc. 
Seeing a new born takes me back 4 years when Reyaansh was born. Also making me realise how clueless I was then & how much I've learnt & grown as a Mother over the years. 
This post is for all the new moms whose angles suffer from Acid Reflux. 👉What is Acid Reflux? 👉What are the symptoms ? 
The backing up of stomach contents into the throat is called Acid Reflux or GER (gastroesophageal reflux) 
Yes! Babies suffer from it too. : Watch for frequent vomiting along with discomfort : Difficult feeding : Coughing, choking wheezing during or after feeding ::::::::: Few & simple lifestyle & diet changes can help the baby treating his or her reflux. 👉Feeding 
A full stomach is when it's is more likely for babies to vomit & spit up. : Increase the frequency of feeding while decreasing the quantity at each feed. : Breastfeeding mothers should restrict their intake of milk & eggs : For Formula fed babies change in formula -to formula for sensitive or spit up babies with infant rice cereal really helps. : Use bottles with nipples which do not have larger holes to avoid milk gulping also avoiding air gulping. : Burp the baby more often & between feeds. Bottle fed babies after every 1-2 ounces. : Make your baby sleep on their back on a firm mattress. Elevating the babies bed to 30degree also helps. : Acid Reflux mostly reduces or goes way during the 5th month of the baby. 
Acid reflux in infants is a treatable condition.

This year end of #September marks the onset of #navratri -'Nav' meaning 9 & 'Ratri' meaning nights, 9 nights; sacred to #goddessdurga considered as the most auspicious time in the Hindu calendar. 
According to Reyaansh when 'MataJi' (as he fondly calls Goddess Durga) comes home, we set the Pooja table, decorate Matas idol, loads of fruits & special sweets to eat. 
He is 4 years old, like any inquisitive toddler he too has question about the story behind these auspicious '9nights'. Indian mythology is full of tales that inspire awe & wonder. The tale we are about to share is one such story which the kids & adults would love.

Owing to the heavy rainfall, #mumbai was at a standstill for almost 2 days.

🍟Sweet Potato Fries on a rainy day 🍟. It's Indian tradition to whip out litres of oil and start frying those unhealthy pakoras and French fries. Let's look at a healthy alternative to stay safe inside as well as outside. 🍟2 large sweet potatoes peeled & sliced into 1 x 3 inch wedges 🍟3 tbsp vegetable /soyabean oil
🍟1/2 tsp sea salt 🍟1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
🍟1/4 tsp paprika (optional) - I'm replacing this with some celery salt I got from @naturesbasket 🍟1/4 tsp garlic powder 
Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line the tray with a foil. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray or brush on little oil on the baking tray.
Place sweet potatoes and soybean oil in large bowl, toss lightly. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
Arrange potatoes in a single layer on prepared baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd.
Bake until tender and golden brown, turning occasionally. Cooking time is 18 to 24 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
💁🏼Did you know 1 cup of sweet potato provides 769% of daily recommended Vit-A. Also, Vit-B6, Potassium, Vit-C and manganese. 💁🏼 Make it paleo diet friendly and use either olive oil, coconut oil or ghee instead of the vegetable oil.
💁🏼 Give it a freshness by adding rosemary ot thyme just before baking 
Stay tuned we are posting fun and unique rainy foods to try today... #indianblogger #indianmomblogger #momtogs#parentingblogger #foodporn #eatingfresh #healthyalternatives #rainyday #momblogger #momlife#toddletales #momtogs#healthyfood#healthychoices#easyreceipes

Dahi Chicken 🍗 (Yoghurt Chicken) 
This is Reyaansh"s favourite dish. Super easy to make, healthy & yummy 
So we thought we should share this recipe with other mums too. 
Ingredients:- Half kg chicken 
2 1/2 tablespoons of yoghurt/ dahi 
1/2 teaspoon Turmeric powder 
1/2 teaspoon Red Chili powder
Fresh coriander to garnish 
1teaspoon Cumin/ Zeera Powder 
Salt to taste 
Ginger garlic paste or powder 
1 Tomato chopped or grated 
2 Onions chopped 
Few green chilies (optional) 
Take yogurt mix in the cumin powder, ginger garlic paste/ powder, turmeric powder, red chilli powder. Put chicken into this and add slit chillies. Keep aside for 30 minutes.

Now heat 2 tsp oil in pan and add onions. Cook till translucent and soft.

Add the tomatoes. Cook for a minute and add all the chicken and marinade.

Keep cooking till gravy reaches the consistency you like. Of you like it more dry, cook a little bit more till yogurt curdles around chicken. Check for salt.

Garnish with coriander leaves and enjoy. This can be eaten with rice if the gravy is more and with Indian bread (roti/naan) if you dry it up.

This recipe is great for weight watchers too. 🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗 #toddletales#mumswhocook#receipeoftheday#chicken#yoghurt#lowfat#healthyfood#dinnerideasforkids#momtogs#momblogger#momlife#loveforcooking #cleaneating#healthylifestyle#indianblogger#indianparents#indianmomblogger#indianmommyblogger#mumbaiblogger#instagram#instagrammer

Aunty or Masi - the cutest bond ever 
Ma - si; in Hindi meaning- Ma Jaisi (like your mother) 
Every relation in a child's life plays an important role in shaping them.

Only an masi can give Hugs like a Mother 
Keep secrets like a Sister 
And share love like a friend 
Masi is the best combination of a mother &  a buddy. Reyaansh looks on his masi as his friend when in times of need, a guide when he stages silent battles with me, & a confidant when he needs a listening ear. 
Today's post is especially for all the masi or aunts around & the special bond they share with their nephews & neices :::

No parent is wrong & nor is their upbringing. I as a parent always strive to give my child a very grounded upbringing. 
House help, luxuries, holidays abroad, good schools, kids of today have it all & parents leave no stone unturned to provide the same. 
Teaching our tiny humans to value, respect, be humble, have humility, love & compassion is extremely important & necessary. 
We can learn the same from our favourite Royal Parents - Kate & Prince William, parents to two lovely kids, with a third on the way. " The Materialism of the world I find quite tricky sometimes- Prince William" 
My mother always said "Simplicity has charm no Man can Conquer or Harm"

I can do it myself ! 
Reyaanshs favourite sentence. Wearing clothes, washing hands, brushing teeth, removing & arranging his clothes & shoes, putting toys & books back in place, pouring water out of a jug etc.
He is in a stage of self sufficiency. Often for parents it gets frustrating as at times we are getting late, or things might break, or kids might get hurt. But I've realised it's important for kids to learn from their mistakes & experiences. Helps them to practise & get perfect resulting in independent kids. 
Let your 4 year olds help themselves & don't jump in too quickly to ruin their stage of self sufficiency. 
Instead make it easier for them, during meal times make them pour their own water out of child friendly pitchers, let them eat their own food, let them zip their own pants, ask them to Assit you in some chores, replace shoes with laces for Velcro shoes. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: #toddletales#toddlers#toddlersofinstagram#letthembekids#letthembethem#parenting#parentingblog#parentingblogger#momtogo#4yearolds#momblogger#moms

Delhi is my hometown, we visit the capital almost twice a year. Every visit post Reyaansh turning 1.5 has become a challenge in terms of entertaining him. 
Mumbai has soft play areas in almost every part, thus back in delhi would really make me wonder how to entertain Reyaansh apart from mall visits & play dates at friends houses. 
Ydd as its fondly called is @yaabadaabadoo soft play area at Greater Kailash 1 
From the ball pool to trampoline, climbing up into the tunnel, hanging from one end to the other is what kids love about these play areas. What Reyaansh really liked about ydd was the pretend play stations- supermarket, hospital, kitchen, ice cream seller etc. Along with colouring & Lego block stations too. Role playing for kids is important making them reflect & develop their knowledge about a topic or real life content. 
Ample space indoors & outdoor for kids to enjoy, while mummies can have their own time out enjoying healthy freshly cooked snacks. 
Do try the whole wheat pizza along with the yummy Oreo milkshake( a super hit with the bachas too) 
Thank you @yaabadaabadoo for increasing the fun meter for the delhi kids 👏👍👍👍 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ #momblogger#delhidiaries#playarea#mumsofig#indianblogger#momtogs#toddletales#delhimumbai#delhiparents#letthemplay#letthembelittle#toddlersofinstagram#indiankids

What's in Mummies HandBag??? Being a mom we are always on the run. our preferences in bags have also changed with time- to light comfy hand bags

1) Uv protected Sunglasses - I'm using Irresistors Morea 
2) Pad hygiene Holder- I use the Naraya pad holder. 
3) Wet wipes- on the run & need an instant fresh & clean look on my face. I use @Sephora_india wet wipes wide range for you to choose from. In case I'm out of stock I shift to @Karawipes 
4) Curasol Stick by @bottegadilungavita_italy  honestly I've never had a dry chapped lip day thanks to the curasol stick
5) Victoria secrets beauty rush favoured lip gloss @victoriasecretsofficalpage 
6) Victoria secrets pocket bac anti bacterial hand gel @victoriasecretsofficalpage
7) Wallet & Money holder- I was tired of trying to fit my heavy wallets into my small bags. Card & Money holders is my fix to this solution. Am using an @emporioArmani wallet holder
8) @maccosmetics tinted lip conditioner petting pink colour my substitute to a lipstick. 
9) Butterfly Clip for your clawclip hairstyles 
10) Victoria secrets Pocket perfume @victoriasecretsofficalpage

Happy Janamasthami 🙏 
Today is the birth of Lord KRISHNA, the 8th avatar of Lord VISHNU. 
Lord Krishna is the most adorable, loved & mischievous one. 
Today we celebrated this beautiful festival in our own simple & little way possible, decorating Lord Krishna's idol with flowers followed by a beautiful aarti & Prasad. 
How can one forget the most important sport associated with this beautiful festival. 'Dahi-Handi' 
Lord Krishna loved eating Curd, Butter & Milk, and would steal the same from his neighbours house. So, to save the makhan from Krishna, his mother & his aunties use to keep the makhan away from his reach, somewhere at a height where he could not reach. From here originated this celebration of dahi handi, where dahi is kept in an earthen pot and is hanged from a height. Boys/ girls by making a human pyramid try to break it & steal the makhan just like Lord Krishna did. 
We too created our own dahi handi for Reyaansh, where he sat on his dads shoulders & broke the handi. We took a plastic box,  filled it with water, some money & chocolates. Tied it from one end to another in his room. 
It is very important to celebrate & explain the history & value behind every festival. The great thing about this is that it promotes an understanding & hopefully a tolerance of other cultures, rituals, ceremonies & traditions. It also teaches them empathy & kindness.

How safe are our kids? 
Recent incident where a 4 year old girl was raped by a peon in a posh mumbai school's washroom. 
We as parents shelter our kids as much & even more than we can & send them to school with utmost faith in the school management regarding their safety & wellbeing. 
Parents who are working, or can't be there with their kids 24x7 depend on their domestic help, crèches, schools, playareas etc. Times are changing for the worst & no one is safe. Talking, explaining to kids about good touch/bad touch, scream when in danger is very important, but also keeping in mind how vulnerable our kids are. Most of the times the perpetrator is a well known friend or an acquaintance or a family member. 
This is not the first incident of rape that has come to light, such incidents have happened  in the past in many prestigious posh schools & have been curbed to come out into the open from the fear of losing the schools reputation. Such crimes have a soda bottle effect, as fast as the news flares up, the faster it dies down- & life moves on. But not for the victim. Some scares never heal.

Saving, sheltering such perpetrators makes one party to the crime equally, also suggesting that we, as people have failed our own. 
Today our shout is to all schools, institutions & our government, we scream for Justice. A Capital Punishment is what we demand. Punishment that will make perpetrators shiver with just the thought of committing such a crime. 
We demand safety of our women & children in our own country.  Let's stand united & spread the word #toddletales#rapevictim#momlife#momblogger#momtogs#momsofig#victims#crime#letthembelittle#letthemtalk#letthembreathe#safety#womenandchildren#againstrapesexualassaultdomesticeviolenceandchildabuse#mumbai#mumbaimoms#mumbaiblogger

Tantrums 
Wether u call it terrible twos, threes or fours. Tantrums are kids birth right. Their way to show something is bothering them. 
We had a tantrum after ages today, like any mother, we all know tantrums are so baseless, that at times we feel like laughing at the reason, but have to keep a straight face. Today in school the topic for discussion was rainy day, pertaining to which the kids had to get one toy or article associated with it. Reyaansh cried for a good half n hour. Why!! Because his teacher showed him an earthworm in a jar. 'Mumma I'm scared of the earthworm, mumma it looks slimy' Every monsoon this mister goes downstairs & hunts for creepy crawly creatures(snails, spiders) & today he got scared of an earthworm. I explained the size difference between him & the earthworm, the concept as to why the worm was shown to the class & how gentle these worms are.

Tantrums are much lesser in preschoolers but a tantrum is a challenge & nothing less than a storm for any parent. 👉Be calm while the outburst is underplay cause more I attempted to get angry, render a pep talk, reason out or leave the room - only made the tantrum worse. 👉 Talk- it really helps, wait for the tantrum to get over. Cuddle him, console him & reason with him using simple words. Show him that mumma is happy & not angry. Hug him make him feel wanted. 👉 as a mother try and figure out the reason for his tantrum. Being hungry or over tired, or something at school, or not spending enough time with them or even a little heated conversation between a couple can trigger such tantrums. 
Tantrums are part & parcel of growing up. Consult for help if you notice an Increase in these tantrums on a daily basis. 
Else some tantrums are super cute to record in their baby books for a good laugh later.

Lactating Mothers Diet Guide 
Breastfeeding is good for the baby & the mother in many ways. It is always said Mothers milk is the best diet for the baby for the first 6months. However, I also believe breastfeeding is every mothers personal choice. 
During pregnancy the body's priority is taking care of the fetus, similarly during feeding the body's priority is producing milk. 
If you are a breastfeeding or an expecting mother, this is for you 👇🏻 👶🏻 Increase your water intake, as the quantity of milk depends on the amount of water the mother drinks. 👶🏻 Calorie intake of a feeding mother should not be less than 2500 calories per day.
👶🏻 During feeding a mothers calories intake increase thus increase carbohydrates in your diet. 👶🏻 Consume the right kind of fat, containing Omega-3 essential Fatty acid, mothers milk contains fat which is very important for the babies brain development & vision. Eat smart & healthy avoiding a high heavy fat diet. 👶🏻 Increase the dose of protein through Eggs, Fish, Meat, Pulses, Grams &Nuts. 👶🏻 Lactating mother should consume at least 1000mg of calcium daily, considering the main constituent of her milk is calcium. Milk & milk products are the best source. Other options like soy milk, tofu & leafy green vegetables are a good source too. 👶🏻 Folic acid, Iron, vitamin C, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B2 & Zinc can be obtained by consuming green leafy vegetables, fish, chicken, meat, nuts, cereals, broccoli, cabbage, amaranth, fruits, tomatoes, cauliflower, whole flour, oats, papaya, pumpkin. 👶🏻 Small regular meals fulfil the body's need for calories intake & good milk supply. 
Always :- 👉🏻 avoid coffee during feeding 👉🏻 Do not take any medication or supplements without consulting your doctor 👉🏻 Avoid alcohol before a feed as it passes into the milk within an hour

Family at home should provide the mother with emotional support & practical help(household chores) Listen & be supportive to boost the mothers confidence. "Breast Feeding is a Team Effort" --------------------

Raising Independent Kids.  Our kids are blessed with the best. 
My question to all parents- are you raising your tots to be independent? Answer of most parents YES
So am I, but am also raising my child to be independent in many other ways.
As a child, I remember my parents giving me my school uniform & teaching me how to iron it myself, Sundays was my turn to make breakfast(toasts, eggs etc), I was even taught how to sweep the floors, vacuum the carpets, wash vessels, dust the house, baby-sit my little sister & buy vegetables & fruits & much more. Some chores were fun & some I used to hate. Rules were strict at home & if I did not iron my uniform, no one did resulting in going to school in an un-ironed uniform. Even to the extent of learning how to screw & unscrew our toys, replacing batteries, changing light bulbs, learning how to drive(obviously all at the correct ages) 
One day I mustered the courage to ask my parents, "dad we have enough help around the house to do all these chores, then why am I being made to do these menial chores. The answer I received is a valuable lesson. It was never about girl or boy, or different rules for either sex or domesticating your girl child. 
It was about learning that :- 👉 No chore & no one is big or small
👉 one should be independent & should have knowledge of everything making them less dependent on others.
👉 learn Time management,we knew, we had limited time to study, play & finish chores. 👉we felt as an important part of the family making us feel more responsible. 👉taught us patience
Reyaansh is 4 years old, he knows different vegetables, knows how to load & unload the washing machine, he knows how to cut boiled eggs, water plants & much more. He is a keen learner observer & a willing helper. All cause we started young & shall continue. 
On a lighter note am sure my future daughter in law would love me for this. 😜
My dad is no more, but I thank him for teaching us this valuable lesson. Making us self sufficient & non-dependent humans.

Learning a new language with @lingostarz 
Language learning comes as easily to preschoolers as walking or talking. As a mother I want my son to learn more than the punjabi and Gujarati that I learnt from my respective grandparents & parents.

Priyali Gadia is just like me & many mothers who wanted to teach her toddler a new language & found no material to, thus after much research & years of hard work @lingostarz was born in Jan 2017.

Priyali has made learning a new language easy not only for the child but also for the mother/family. Presently we are using Numbers Fun Kit in Spanish. Learning through high quality image flash cards specially designed for first time learners along with words in the chosen language to English translation & phonetic pronunciation of every word. 
Lingo Starz has introduced three sets of flashcards - the ‘First Thirty Words’ flashcard series the ‘Colours Fun Kit’ & ‘Number Fun Kit’ available in French, Mandarin & Spanish. 
1. The First Thirty Words series consists of 30 words that children can easily relate to and can be divided into three main categories - 10 Animals, 10 Food and 10 Things.

Learning a new language with @lingostarz Language learning comes as easily to preschoolers as walking or talking. As a mother I want my son to learn more than the punjabi and Gujarati that I learnt from my respective grandparents & parents. Priyali Gadia is just like me & many mothers who wanted to teach her toddler a new language & found no material to, thus after much research & years of hard work @lingostarz was born in Jan 2017. Priyali has made learning a new language easy not only for the child but also for the mother/family. Presently we are using Numbers Fun Kit in Spanish. Learning through high quality image flash cards specially designed for first time learners along with words in the chosen language to English translation & phonetic pronunciation of every word. Lingo Starz has introduced three sets of flashcards - the ‘First Thirty Words’ flashcard series the ‘Colours Fun Kit’ & ‘Number Fun Kit’ available in French, Mandarin & Spanish. 1. The First Thirty Words series consists of 30 words that children can easily relate to and can be divided into three main categories - 10 Animals, 10 Food and 10 Things. 2. The Colours Fun Kit has additional vocabulary with 18 colour flashcards, a crayon box, do-it yourself crayon labels, 10 colouring pages that help children learn their colours in a creative way. 3. The Numbers Fun Kit consists of 21 number flashcards from 0-20,a Mismatch book which helps children reinforce their learning of numbers in a unique and creative way. @lingostarz has broken the monotony & made learning a new language fun & exciting.

Good pronunciation, great spellings, word recognition, reading well are the building blocks of any language. Phonics represents a way of teaching which has generated extremely successful results 
We enrolled Reyaansh into Phonics class @kudoas.kac at the age of 3, his command over the English language has drastically improved, identifying & writing alphabets, sounds associated with each alphabet. 
@kudos.kac explains how Phonics work?
Every word is made up of individual components which can be sounded out. These are known as phonemes & they represent the very essence of how phonics education works. Phonics allows children to hear phonemes, identify them, understand how the sounds & their associated letters correlate with one another.
How phonic helps ? 
to blend the sounds together to make words

The  5 basic skills required for reading & writing are: 
1. Learning the letter sounds 
2. Learning letter formation
3. Blending
4. Identifying sounds in words 
5. Spelling the tricky words

@kudos.kac has a superb jolly Phonics class with a uk certified teacher for your preschooler.  #toddletales#toddlers#phonics #phonicsfun#phonetics#learning#pronunciation#reading#english#language#classes#classesforkids#bandra#bandrawest#mumbai#mumbaimoms#mumbaiblogger#blogger#momtogs#momblog#momlife#momboss#parentsofig#momblogger#indianblogger#indianparents#indianwomen#parentingtips#parentingblogger

Rainy day & stuck with a toddler at home. Keeping busy is the key. So we decided to make SLIME. 
We used SLIME Madness kit from YUCKY SCIENCE. Nothing short of a fun science experiment (taking me back to my school & science lab days). This kit makes 5 different types of slime. Easy to follow & detailed manual. 
The kit includes- 👉 measuring bowls & beaker 👉water colours & glitter 👉manual 👉mixing spoon 👉pipette 👉 borax powder & pva for slime base 
Reyaansh made his slime from start to finish, measuring, mixing, choosing colours, except the part which involved the gas to make the slime base. 
Pretty exciting & engaging for the kids but surely not without adult supervision.

We made two slimes googley eye slime & glitter slime. All in all a fun & learning afternoon. 
#toddletalesfunmeter rate this slime making kit a 5/10.

Grandparents
The joy of grandchildren, fleeting moments to be treasured. How children perceive their Grandparents...... something to make you'll laugh 
1.She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye....
2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 80. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?" 3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice,
"Who was THAT?" 4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods."
The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!" 5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.
 6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read." #tuesday#tuesdayhumor#grandparents#grandchildren#toddletales#laugh#moments#momboss#momblog#momlife#momtogs#momsofig#parents#mumbai#mumbaimoms#mumslife

How do you plan a modern day Indian godh bharai/ #babyshower? These days the whole concept needs a lot more planning.There are themes, colour concepts, ideas, gourmet food, baby games; all in all it's a party to be planned. Let's face it you have the belly + the exhaustion, we mothers CANNOT trust the father to be to execute our vision and how do you find the perfect go between what friends want to plan and what parents/inlaws have in mind! @toddletales has found the perfect solution: @HopnBop (yeah! the famous play area at Khar) now does outdoor baby shower party events. Here is a sneak peek of one such event done for new parents RIYA & HITESH KOTAK, which we had the fortune to come across! The uber chic theme chosen was the "KATESPADE VICTORIAN THEME" which was the black and white stripes with accents of pink around. Following the cue from the to be parents to keep it classy! First they research for various themes, then review the venue and best fit a theme that aesthetically suits the venue. This was done at a Banquet in Chembur . The creative brainchild behind all the planning is owner Ekta Mohnani Kamra. For the baby shower you can either have a venue outside of your choice or choose the HopnBop venue as well if you have a large number of kids going to be part of the event. The beautiful pictures were captured by SHRUTI TEJWANI's photography team. We asked HopnBop for some baby shower themes to look out for & this is what we got... 🎉Bumblebee 🎉Bohemian 🎉Victorian Theme 🎉Pea in the Pod 🎉Storyland Theme 🎉Flamingo and many more... so the next time an expectant girlfriend asks for your help be sure to remember these tips and call up @hopnbopmumbai to plan it immaculately for you, creating some stress free celebratory memories! #babyshower#theme#outdoorparty#decor#ideas#partyplanner#india#mumbai#victoriantheme#specialmoments#expectingparents#expectingmoms#mumbai#playarea#mumblogger#indianmommyblogger#mommyblogger #momlife#parents#indianblogger #parentsofig#momsofinstagram#momblog#momsofig#momboss#momlifeisthebestlife#eventsplanning#indianeventplanner#toddletales

Part 1- Benefits of Dance & Movement for our Tiny Humans.
I had met Deepa at a friends wedding 7years back,& remember admiring how Dance came naturally to her, Like she was Born to Dance. Humans are naturally creative,musical & artistic.Children learn movement patterns as readily as they learn languages.Thanks to Deepa it's been 2 years since my son has been going to his favourite dance class. Through dance, i have noticed a lot of development in my son- spatial awareness, less clumsy, paying more attention to others & sharing their space.

Deepa Prithyani founder of Kudos Dance academy @kudos.kac believes 💃🏻Dancing utilizes the entire body & is an excellent form of exercise for total body fitness. 🕺Dance promotes psychological health & maturity. Children enjoy the opportunity to express their emotions & become aware of themselves & others through creative movement. Movement within a class offers a structured outlet for physical release while gaining awareness & appreciation of oneself and others. 
@kudos.kac offers various classes for kids of all ages. List of complete classes are in the second part of this story.
