Staying at home(& Working)- pros and cons

A major part of last 1.5 years, I have been working from home or remotely. If I count the days I worked from office, it is comparatively very less. While it is advantageous in many ways, it has few disadvantages as well.
As a parent: 
You get more time with your kids: Kids are too demanding and they need your quality time to spent for them. WFH helps you address all their needs on time and lets you prevail as a good mom.
Facilitate your child's learning: Every child develop their first set of skills right from the home. Their surroundings play a big role in their physical and mental well being. You can facilitate, control and be a guide and supporter while they advance in their early childhood.

An evening walk

At last, looks like spring has already reached in Buffalo. All snow heaps melted away, weather is getting better everyday. People started coming out from houses for after noon walks, kids are coming to play area. I saw lots of kids playing in the play area, thought it would be good idea to take Liya for a walk.

Liya loves Biriyani!

It was such a long since I made Biriyani. After last eid, I did not prepare at all. So over weekend, I got an idea of making biriyani. I kept saying Liya that I am gonna prepare biriyani today. Looked like she loved the word. She tried to repeat it.

Late night visit to a hospital

Few days back, while having dinner I felt dizziness, fatigue and body turned to be very weak. We decided to go to doc immediately. It was almost 10.30 PM when we got out of house.  Liya seems to be really excited to go out unexpectedly. She got ready really fast, worn her jacket, shoes etc with great enthusiasm.

We were worried how would she spend time in hospital. It was already her bed time, but her big eyes were awake with happiness. The hospital was 'high' rated one in Buffalo, so had a really impressive and warm ambiance. Unlike Er departments in India, this was extremely hygienic, well maintained and vast. Nobody was rushing with bleeding people on stretchers, no heartbreaking scenes, no beep beep of life saving machines, no docs or nurses were running from bed to bed.

With Liya, at religious classes..

Almost all Sundays we attend religious classes at ISNF(Masjid-Noor), here in Buffalo. Back in Kerala I have seen many people hesitated to take infants to Masjids/religious gatherings because of the 'mess' they would create in such places - hmmm, it is very true that these little champs will not always 'enjoy' the speeches and advices delivered over a 'mike and speaker'...
