Category: The Conclusion

The Conclusion is the place where I share my conclusion – reviews about products .. just about everything that I reach a conclusion with :)

When I put her in pain ..

A has been stressed out these days ..

she might be undergoing a growth spurt .. or .. the new class that she has moved up ..

the heat .. or .. well I am still trying to figure..

I know it will pass .. but still itโ€™s really hard!

After a tantrum and me reacting .. not so well ..

We reactions just do that!!

Responding is what we must be doing but .. always been wired to react .. since my childhood .. and still being reacted upon .. I am unable to .. Respond instead of react ๐Ÿ™

So ..

She questioned me yesterday..

“how could u do it?

Donโ€™t u know I am in lots of pain? “(She hurt her ear .. I was worried and couldn’t sleep the night before .. well that’s another story)

Well setting boundaries is tough..!!!

Reading a lot of parenting books is one thing .. but doing accordingly .. actually remembering .. them at appropriate times is another ..

well trying to respond finally .. especially when she was wheeling me to the right way ..

I told her

โ€œI am sorry .. u made a mistake .. while correcting it .. I was made a bigger mistake!

I am so sorry ..

I am so sorry ..

I am apologising sincerely ..

What do u want me to do to let you forgive me?โ€

.

.

.

She had big emotions..

.

.

But she forgave me and was her normal .. self showering me with loads of love

But .. I couldnโ€™t forgive myself as easily as she could .. especially after she pointed out .. how painful it was for her to deal with me letting her down! Yes .. I did let her down!!

I am the centre of her little world!

.

But .. well ..

..

Children are a blessing .. they let u see a new perspective and they are so forgiving!

Well four years she is ..

but .. she is a human on her own!

Not just my child ..

.

I realised writing this down helped me ease a little more ..

so well!

Then again .. this is something that is written with pain .. but earnestly and honestly for me to come back and reflect!

Until then I soak in #aadyalove to heal!

When your preschooler teaches you about compassion!

Manasi and Aadya might want anything and everything under the sun .. otherwise.. but when they are sleepy, they just want the warmth of Amma touching them .. just my hand would do!

It is such moments when they put their hands around my neck .. that I call … ๐Ÿ˜ Complete Bliss! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

So I have a rowdy of a younger daughter Manasi ๐Ÿ˜…

She decided she wanted to read a book ..

She was calling okay yelling Aaddhaaa aaddhaaa addhaaa .. who by the way was sitting right next to her ..

Aadya was seeking my attention..

I smile ๐Ÿ˜Š and tell A .. see Manasi is calling out to you .. just like you are calling me ..

She smiled .. and turned towards Miss Manasi.

So Manasi apparently also decided for her Akka that Akka MUST read THE book she pre-decided.

She shoved the book to Aadya and told her to read..

I smiled at my elder daughter’s inconvenience because just the scene where miss A puts me in .. like every hour ๐Ÿ˜

Now Aadya let herself an uncomfortable smile and sat down to read ..

I didn’t know how to react to this now .. for a moment ..

Aadya wanted to do something with me .. but sat down with her sister to satisfy her ..

I really felt guilty that she stopped doing something what she wanted maybe because I prodded her to listen to what her sister wants to say to her ..

So I told her ..

it’s okay if you don’t want to read .. you can tell Siva that you wouldn’t be able to read along with her ..

Now my elder daughter surprised me .. overwhelmed me ..

Amma it’s okay .. Siva will feel bad right .. So I will sit down and read ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿ˜

Wow! Aadya always has lessons for me on compassion, empathy and love! She just always does!

I always feel blessed to have such a love-filled soul enter my life! โค๏ธ

P.S. My little stubborn toddler younger daughter refused to allow A to pick any other book! And poor thing just stuck to it for good 15 minutes .. because apparently

It’s okay Amma! Siva will feel bad!

Now after all this .. I just have to share .. Manasi adores Aadya like nobody!

Right from the womb where she used to always respond to Aadya by kicking .. to start looking up to the little big sister, following her ๐Ÿ˜Ž to forgetting her own woes if Aadya is crying and pacifying her๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜!

I so so love their bond – the sibling bond! ๐Ÿ’•

This is that book that Miss Siva Manasi picked up for Miss Sree Aadya ๐Ÿ˜

Also we are finally setting up Montessori space at my moms place ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Wise and Otherwise:A Salute to Life by Sudha Murthy

Well this book is a collection of anecdotes, each gripping in its own way. They are all real incidents Mrs. Sudha Murthy experienced at various phases in her life.

The tagline ‘A Salute to Life’ is very apt. I so loved the book that Iย can’t wait to read the other books written by her. ๐Ÿ™‚

As you read the book, you find her book written in a very simple language. It connects with the common man. Well of course the bag of stories is all about the common man of course. But nevertheless the language too is very simple :), easily connectable.

Respect for her grows throughout the book. Its the minute details that she holds preciously to share with all of us, the personal touch to the stories that adds the salt :).

Its a tribute to lifeย andย humanity in particular. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so glad I read this book at this time of my life, where what I read impacts my baby the most ๐Ÿ™‚ He would see me relishing the positive/God side of the humane nature and resenting the negative/devil side of the humane nature. I hope he understands and grows up to be a positive humane pumping positive energy all around him.

There are two stories that excited me ๐Ÿ™‚

The very 1st story on honesty where the boy returns his extra stipend money and the other of a poor flower vendor who showed gratitude on behalf of the rest like her to Sudha Murthy for the hospital that was built for the poor.

The best part was Sudha Murthy could respond well and take it all ๐Ÿ™‚

We see a lot of people changing with time and prosperity. She seems to be one who is unmoved as such. And that’s what excites me the most. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope to read the rest of her books pretty soon. And my baby swallows all the good into him. ๐Ÿ™‚
