Bi-lingual chaos...

Did you know- Learning a second language can actually boost up our brain power. Read the story here.
What's the exciting part of being in a bi-lingual surrounding? According to me - the code mixing and code switching in the usual conversations. It's more fun if you are in a bi-lingual household where a toddler or pre-schooler growing into two/multiple languages.

Book of the Week :: Little Apple Goat

Note: Another super delayed post, originally scheduled for April 25.
Theme: Jungle
Why this theme?: You all know 22 April was earth day. This earth and everything in it is a blessing for us and the greenery we see around is the donor of our bread and breath. We have to be grateful and hence we must preserve its originality and should not tamper it.  The awareness must start from within our homes and we owe to pass over the message to our little buds, as well. So, we chose to learn about the greenery from Little Apple Goat. This book is not about jungles but about orchards.

What's it all about...?

Much to Do Before 3 + 2.5 years update

Note: This is the Bucket list Update for March. This was in my drafts and today only noticed that I didn't publish it yet. So silly of me.

Welcome to another 'Bucket List' update. Sadly we don't have anything specific to cross in our TO DO list. But spring is almost (it's playing hide and seek...) here and Insha Allah we hope to cross a few items by April end.

As I haven't given you a 30 months update (yay we're already 2 and half), let's see what Liya is up to. Nothing new has happened since last month, like any other kid she is learning and exploring the world the world around.

* She has mastered the art of using scissors. She can crop paper, polythene etc easily. And the consequence is that our house is growing more and more messy everyday. She loves to remove tags from cloths, open the grocery polythene etc using scissor. By the way she made ice cream with scissors. Look at the picture..:)
The right side curves are not cropped by her, that was the part of the paper itself. She just made the scoop. I was so happy to see that she made it this way.

Spring has sprung...Finally!!

Much much awaited spring is finally here. We are glad to go outside and play. Liya gets to go out in the backyards of daycare to play with her friends.

Many thanks to everyone who messaged/called/commented after reading my previous post. Your love and care mean a lot to us.  So glad to have a circle of friends who really care.

Liya went missing in the store...and the happenings!

As I type this, my fingers are still trembling and I can still feel the twinge in my heart. A part of me is consoling the other part that it was just another normal day. But I know it wasn't! I have not had such a terrible shock anytime in my past... Did you know – we missed Liya in a store today! It's not as simple as that. At least for me.

We had been for spring festival in our masjid and on the way back I got an odd idea of dropping to Burlington coat factory because I wanted to buy some accessories for Liya. If you have ever visited Burlington store, you would definitely know the huge volume of things they stock and how difficult it is to navigate through the aisles. Weather turned out nice today after such a long gap,  and the store was crowded too. We were in the baby depot. I was checking something in an aisle and J in another.
