I am so happy seeing everyone sounding so positive about joining and being in this group. When i started this thread i was quiet apprehensive but after seeing your responses i am overwehlmed. Its not about numbers but the few genuine people who want to bond together, that is making this place rocking :)
Firstly a warm welcom to Manju2Madhu and Ashita, great that you both are now part of this group.
Hey manju2madhu , i do agree that sending kids to school at the tender age of 2.5yrs is not the right age but unfortunately in India we have no choice but adhere to these norms. Yes some kids take more time than the others to adjust to the school enviornment but thats normal. Even my daughter will start her school tom, right now she is looking forward to going there, lets c what she does tom:)The best part is when i told her that, there might b many kids who would be crying to go back home, she was like, don't worry i'll not cry and even ask those babies not to cry, i'll play with them..ha ha ha.
Delhi ki ya baat hai???Wahaan ke kapde or fashion uff. I am sure, if u r used to the delhi scene, u would have great taste in clothes.Right now if u see me, u won't believe i am even remotely connected with fashion or style. Though i have managed to reduce my weight i have yet to get my wardrobe organised. Getting a good tailor is the biggest challenge...Basically i am from mumbai but for the last one and a half years we were in goa, i have just shifted to thane.What about u???Wr r u planning to shift. do let me know. it will be great to meet you.
Now that you have us in your life, learn to relax, we will be there for you to give you all the emotional support u need.
As a mother, i know how hard it can be to leave your little angel with someone else since you have no choice,make sure whatever you decide a maid or a daycare, you need to have full confidence in them. Until and unless you as mother are not comfortable with the people you leave your child with i doubt if you will ever be relaxed.. Also the feedback from your own child will give you the feel of the place or your maid incase you decide to opt for one. A happy child generally is in good hands.
So you r from bangalore. Nice to know you. Do tell us more about your little one and your family..
Last but not the Least its dear Mickey,
7 yrs is a long time to suffer the pain dear. I know your dilemma in going ahead with the operation when your daughther is in her 10th but i guess you need to take the decision sooner or later. Will pray for you to heal fast. In the mean time why don't you do one small exercise each day, which is saying a positive affirmation to yourself everyday something like "my back pain is healing and it is getting better with each day"I know it sounds silly but if you do it with conviction it seems to work. That doesn't mean you will never have to do surgery but atleast the pain might ease away. Since there are no side effects to this positive affirmations no harm in saying it everyday:) I believe in the power of our mind over body.
Mickey as for the exercise for the upper arms i do not know of any specific exercise, i must confess that, the only way i managed to reduce my weight (i need to tone my body though)was by doing my housework.Since my kids were small and i had no support system there was no way i could have gone to the gym,so i literally did jhadu pocha by myself for a whole year apart from that i used to walk and take the steps instead of the lift. Once these kids are set into a routine, i might try and go to a gym and then maybe share some tips with you.
Will end this post with "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.~ Buddha
