Your toddler needs a pet

Your toddler needs a pet

This time around, with my usual weekly chat session with my paediatrician aunt, who never spares a chance she can pick on, to correct my parenting ways, I had a surprise springing out of nowhere, a surprise in the form of a queer but innocent looking Guinea pig, which I faintly remembered to have seen in my high school textbooks.  Although my aunt looked hesitant to divulge further details, and almost killed me with the suspense, I pursued till she began, with a chuckle and a suppressed grin, to narrate the biography of that piglet which was actually eyeing us so far, with a mix of quaint curiosity, a little patience, an inherent fear and a bit of god knows what.  She told me she had recently purchased this guinea pig from some well-meaning friend who had convinced her that guinea pig is the next best thing to have as a pet.   At this point, in the middle of our...

Positive parenting strategies

My daughter sleeps instantly the minute I open my mouth to sing my signature lullaby tune, which I have mastered with a careful practice of years, god knows, how many. This is what I proudly call, a legacy of love that is handed down to me from past so many generations.  Although I found it monotonous and tiresome to repeat the tunes, she, fortunately, loves every minute that she spent listening to my voice.  I have felt intrigued about this phenomenon and I wonder if my voice has a say here.  I am a bathroom singer and by no means sound mellifluous and soothing.  I have received numerous friendly warnings from a handful of earnest friends that are left, with me, no matter what, that my voice has a painfully grating effect on human ears and I need to be doubly careful while singing lullabies.  I was advised to practice lullabies in isolation and then try them out carefully one by one on my baby. Anyway, I like my daughter for suppo...

Children are the greatest wonders of your world, the lovely gifts that Mother Nature gave you for safeguarding for the rest of your entire life. Swaddling a baby inside a snug blanket between your arms sets off a burst of irrepressible emotions. Our teensy weensy creatures, fallen straight from some mysterious part of heaven, and ensconced in our laps, can surely make our world go round. They change our way of life and our world within,   A toddler, bundled up in layers of clothes, is a joy to behold. A mother finds instinctive pleasure in decking up her child in myriad ways. She can effortlessly choose the right clothing for her child, be it summer or winter.   Who would not love to see our toddlers all dressed up in a cute pair of pajamas? Capturing moments with them on camera will be really worth t...

Into the mind of a toddler

Into the mind of a toddler

Working through unpredictable night and day shifts had driven Ramya, to the edge and somehow a sense of dissatisfaction had crept in slowly.  Despite having a caring husband like Vivek, and the world at her feet, she was deeply unhappy about the sudden flare-ups of arguments that used to crop up most unexpectedly. Newly born Shreya, a mute spectator to their constant skirmishes, was the only child whom Ramya had identified her world with, at that point in time.  Tired of yelling matches, Ramya would focus on chores, and a bit on her painting sessions at the end of the day that helped her unwind.  Working for an MNC had given her some career satisfaction which she had craved for, in compensation to what life offered her with regards to her otherwise trouble-ridden life. Left with not much time for husband and the kid, she felt pained and somehow managed to spend a small slot of her time with Shreya. Employing a nanny for childcare seemed to e...
