Lego Mania

LEGO.........the word brings back very fond childhood memories. Spending weekends and all holidays with cousins, staying up way beyond bedtime, stealing goodies from grandma's refrigerator after she would sleep, broken nails, scratched and bleeding cuticles from trying to pry tiny lego pieces apart and days spent building lego cities. Given a choice to go back in time, that would be the time I would go back to.
My mom has a huge family made up of 3 brothers and 5 sisters ensuring that I have plenty of cousins. Being an only child, I am particularly close to all my cousins and we meet up regularly even now. But the conversations and games have changed as have we. Now we meet up for a night of pictionary, scattergories or monopoly, while as kids we could keep ourselves busy for days playing hotel, school or lego. 


So when our baby was born 17 months back, the first thought that come to mind was "wow I can now build lego cities with him!" and we bought him his first Lego Duplo set as his first birthday gift. He is just starting to understand the Lego Duplo and maybe we are a tad bit more excited than he is that even the pain of stepping on lego pieces will not stop us! But I truly cannot wait until the day when he has a cupboard full of lego categorized according to colour.....a dream of mine! Definitely plan to do a Lego themed birthday party too!
Looking forward to the Lego Movie which "assembles" worldwide today!

Ronav’s first experience with Canvas painting

Back in January this year, Ronav’s grandparents gifted him an easel, canvas papers and paints.  We spent one Saturday afternoon creating this finger painting. He painted the entire thing himself with a few inputs from me.  At that time he had little knowledge of what the roots of trees really do. So when I explained the roots help in anchorage and nutrition, he made them round and big to give his trees maximum nutrients.  He also painted two suns. When I asked him the reason for doing that, this was his explanation “One sun is up in the sky to give us light and one sun is close to my trees to help them grow stronger and  taller quickly.” The imaginative minds of young kids!  Needless to say that we have saved this one! 





A Dentist’s Views On Childrens Dental Care - An interview by KanikaG

Barnyard Theme 2nd Birthday

Our son turned 2 last month and we decided to throw a Barnyard theme birthday party for him. After the Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party last year, this year we chose a theme he could relate to and enjoy. He can now recognize all farm animals and the sounds they make and Old MacDonald is one of his favourite nursery rhymes. It took weeks and weeks of preparations and that meant burning the midnight oil once again for us working parents, and a sabbatical for me from my blog for over 3 months. Here is all that we did and more.

Invitations:
Were made on photoshop by my husband and were sent out via email and whats app. We used the same invitations as reminders a week before the party for last minute rsvps.


Birthday Boy:
Ronav was dressed in denim overalls and a checked shirt to resemble a farmer in the barn, Mom and dad played their part too, wearing checked shirts and denims.


Barn Entrance:
Our main door was decorated to look like a barn door.

Paper Rosettes, Streamers: Were hand made …
