We are in a nuclear setup and a family of four, me, my husband and two notorious kids. The other day I was put to question by my husband as to why I still get up an hour before anyone else in the house? He further suggested that since we all are working from home and there is no rush for school or office or grocery or any other thing for that matter, then why do I still have to haste for things? Another word of advice was since I have my whole day at my disposal, I can take up things little slow and easy and instead take an extra hour of sleep?
That made me ponder and I decided to alter my morning alarm to get the taste of the new morning routine, as guided by my affectionate husband.
Lockdown birthday celebration
The pandemic has forced us all to stay indoors for our safety and security. This has restraint for our birthday and anniversaries celebration. However, kids always look forward to their birthday celebration and it is just amazing to see how excited these innocent souls are for their birthdays.
This year calls for a celebration without friends and family. Does it sound dull? Yes, of course, especially for our little heroes. But lockdown doesn’t mean that we cannot make their day special.
Here are 5 unique ideas to make their day special and bring a smile on their face.
Co-sleeping older kids
“Mom please come and sleep with me for 10 minutes!” This is what I hear from my son every night when I put him to bed. Those 10 minutes of snuggling, those 10 minutes of heart to heart conversation, those 10 minutes of giggling, those 10 minutes of hugs and kisses, those 10 minutes of cuddling, all this makes me feel, ‘motherhood is totally worth it’.
My life was going very much on a straight track;
until I was caught in a motherhood hack.
Though not once but twice;
to give me a better taste of life.
