Since I was on maternity leave, I was staying with my parents at Delhi for few months now. I had my mother to help me look after the baby, I did not have to cook 😁, My dad who cooks my favorite dishes and special biryanis… Now that I think of it, I rarely did any housework. Sadly, my leave has almost come to an end, have to join work on Oct 14th. Me and my husband are back to Hyderabad. Its only 2 days now but it’s been too hectic with all the unpacking, arranging and cleaning. With just two of us doing all the work… now I know it’s not an easy task to do housework plus looking after the baby. Hopefully things will get settled a bit once the organizing is done. Specially I have to maintain a schedule for doing things… These two days everything was messy and delayed. Its going to be a completely new experience… hopefully a good one 👸(Being positive)
In the coming weeks I plan to share any new tips and my travel ✈ experience with baby . There were somethings which I did not know as a new Mom and I have learned now. Looking forward to share those tips with you soon. 😊
My baby girl has been suffering from cold and cough for the past few days. Seeing her suffer feels so terrible. Past few days had been busy. Hugging her, being there with her, noting all the medications and giving to her on time. Lots to follow – cannot give medicine after feeding and then taking her from sleep and giving medicine (forgetting to give some of them). All the changing of cloths after she vomits, fighting with her hands to put that nasal spray. Calming her, singing to her, making her sleep and jumping out of bed when I hear any sound. Now she’s recovering and its my turn to be sick. Since Yesterday I am down with cold and horrible throat pain but that’s fine as long as baby gets well. You feel so helpless when your tiny one is not well, when all you can do is hug them when they are sick as you never know if they are in pain.
Today she stepped into 5 Months. I am so grateful and thankful to God for bringing her to this world and keeping her safe.
To my baby girl:
It seems like yesterday you were born
Time flies and you are soon 5 months old
Can’t have enough of your laughter and cries
Its so fun playing with you
I never get tired of taking care of you
I know I am a lazy one but I will do everything for you
You make me realize that I have lot to improve
To the world you may not be perfect but for me you are most perfect and beautiful
You bring more happiness each day in my life
Love you lots, Hugs and Kisses

There was a man named Josh. He was a rich man who owned a big company. He had a wife and two children.
He was so busy establishing his company and rarely spent time with his family. He had no idea what his wife likes or what his children are doing. His only aim was to earn a lot of money. Whole day he used to work, travel and night he used to return to his home. By the time he reaches home, it will be so late that his wife and children will be sleeping.
His wife used to do housework whole day and takes care of the children. But he never helped her. He used to think all she does is sit in the house and he is the one who earns and feeds them. One day his wife decided to talk to him and to tell him that it’s difficult for her to be alone. She called him and asked him to come home early for a day.
He went home and asked his wife “Why did you call me? You know that I am so busy. All you do is sit at home.”. She replied “Yes, I sit at home but I don’t sit and sleep whole day. I do all the work in the house. I wake up morning clean the house, cook food, do the laundry, I feed the children, take them to school and look after them.” Josh replied “so what? What’s so difficult about that? I work whole day outside.” She said “yes you work outside, you earn money, you spend it for yourself and I am not asking for it. All I need is you spend some time with me and your children. I am married to you but I feel alone and I don’t get any love, care or appreciation from you.” Josh ignored her. He told her that he is tired and she is creating unnecessary problems.
Days went by, one day when he came home early, he saw that things were lying on the floor, cloths unwashed, the kitchen was not clean, sink was full of dishes, bedroom was not tidy. Books lying all over the table. He stood in the hall and started shouting “Why have you not cleaned the house? Where are you? ” There was no reply. He looked for his wife and she was not inside the house. His Children were not there either. He called to her phone and there was no reply. After few hours he got a call from the hospital that his wife is admitted. He went to the hospital and he found his wife in a serious condition. He asked the doctor, “what happened to my wife?”. Doctor said “Your wife is suffering from chronic kidney disease. She is undergoing treatment for it for months now. Her condition is getting worse.” Josh was shocked.
Doctor asked “You are her husband, right? How come you did not know about her condition? You did not notice that she is growing weak and suffering? ” Josh was unable to reply to the doctor. He sat near to his wife who was lying on the hospital bed. He looked at her with tears in his eyes. He looked at his children and he saw them taking care of their mother.
He started feeling guilty about how being a husband he did not take time to care for his wife. He sat there crying thinking how his wife managed to do all the work at house alone. How lonely she might have felt without having anyone to tell her problems. How depressed she might have been without having her husband to look after her. As these thoughts ran in his mind… he started crying out loud holding his wife hands. His wife woke up hearing him cry and said to him “Don’t cry, at least you are here now.”
That day Josh decided he is never going to take his family for granted. He realized that he was setting his priorities wrong the whole time. Josh started spending time with his wife and children. He still goes to work and also looks after his family. He helps his wife with the chores, takes her to hospital and always makes sure that she is happy. After few years, his wife completely recovered. They are now a happy family.
Never take your loved ones for granted. Make them feel loved, cared and support them when they need you, if you don’t want to regret losing them.
In your busy married life there are little things that happens. When you think about it you smile, which keeps you going. Have fun!

A successful marriage is when a husband and wife decide to stop fighting with each other and start fighting for each other.
