Travelogue - Miami

Miami, uff vot a trip!!! the beach feeling is still in there....I was browisng thru so many sites to find all the required info regd miami, when I thought that I should also contribute some once am back from the trip, hence the blog here:)...we booked for a flight with break journey, luckily the airlines converted into a direct flight for some reason, am glad they did it! We started off on a friday morning and took the 7am flight from boston to miami...reached miami by 10:30am...it was warm n welcoming there after all the winter chill near boston. But the miami airport is so biiiig, we had to walk a loooong distance find some exit n get out!....It's better to book a rental car in advance, so that they will send a shuttle to airport. There are rental car agencies at the airport too, but lill high on the price. We booked the car through 'Advantage' rental cars, for which we took their shuttle from airport to their office, which is abt 5 mins drive. Finished the formalities there, and for ppl who dont have a credit card in US, they cant pay by cash n u've to use ur internationally accepted credit card. Also if u dont have a US credit card then u'll need to pay extra for insurance, which would be much more than the car rent itself...Finally we got a car and we are off to KeyWest, which is around 160 miles from Miami. Google maps helped us a lot for finding the route, it's pretty much easier if u follow it. For veggie junta, there are couple of italian restaurants on the way or u can stop by dunkin/starbucks/MCDonalds for a quick snack. Though the google maps show that the drive is only 3hr 30 mins, it actually takes around 4hr 30mins to 5 hrs as the speed limit is very less (varies between 30 - 50 mph). But the drive is awesome as there's ocean on both sides for most of the journey. And there are lot of islands coming on the way, called 'Keys'. KeyWest is the last island on the stretch.

Parenting Tales - Luck Is Overrated & Happiness Is Acquired

Hey there! It has been such a long time I wrote here and it feels so good to be back. While the look and feel and reach of blogs have been transformed while I was away, one thing remained constant and that is content. End of the day, we all read when the content appeals to us, when the content stays with us, keep popping out of our minds when we are busy with something else, when it resonates with our persona and current phase of life.

If you are a parent and dealing with new parenting trials every day then yes my thoughts resonate very much with you - our content is the same :) Let me make you feel jealous/happy for a bit now! Recently, during many interactions I was quoted as a 'lucky parent' and I felt the need to write why it is not so on most occasions. Sooner, you will know why.

My child is 5 years now and below are certain things that happen as a rhythm and part of his lifestyle.

1. He is the first one to wake up at home by himself, early in the morning, around 6-6:30 …

My precious possession!

Right now our (me and the hubby) world revolves around this little man, who is busy himself and keeps us on our toes as well! Darling kiddo is 3.8 years now and is the most happening thing at home. Here's presenting a little peek into his illustrious life :)

He managed to dug out a chocolate lying somewhere in the fridge and was asking me to open it for him. I said - you can have it tomorrow morning in the car when we will go on a ride to your grandma's place. He just listened to me and went on to do something still holding the chocolate in his tiny hand. I was smiling to myself that I handled the situation smartly by not saying no directly, to which he would throw a tantrum otherwise! After a while he was asking me to open the balcony door to throw the chocolate wrapper in the bin. I was not pleased that he finished the chocolate and asked him why did he eat it? He said - Mumma I already ate it while going to grandma's place in the car tomorrow!!!! #AajKalKeBacche!

Two fathers...unlimited love!

To the two most amazing fathers I have known so far!

To the father who thinks beyond money
who thinks daughters are no less to sons
who thinks the best thing he could give his daughters is their education
who never thinks that cooking is only a woman's job and still cooks at home
who prepares much loved home-made pickle for her daughter instead of getting the store brought one
who doesn't care what others think when he is doing the right thing
who defied the societal rules and went out of his way just to give a beautiful life to his daughter in her rightful way!
Happy Father's Day dear Dad!

To the father who delivered his baby with the same (or may be more!) grit, passion and pain as his wife, excepting the physical pain and scars!
who takes care of his kid also like a mother
who never shows patriarchy
who is never tired and always plays along with his child, almost like a sibling
who never minded changing diapers, cleaning bum or giving bath to his baby
who gives the bes…
