I was scrolling through old photos on my iPhone a couple of days back when I found a gem. A photo of our darling Coco taken a couple of days before we decided to bring him home.

He was hanging around with his brother, and this photo of the two of them together just pulled at my heart. It was just a few months ago that he was this tiny little thing that I would carry in the palm of my hand, and who would nap peacefully on my lap while I read.

Teacher’s Day – Inspiration through Books, TV, and Movies

Teacher’s Day – Inspiration through Books, TV, and Movies

by

Every year sometime late in August, Snubnose comes to me for help on some project or the other – to make a little something special for her teacher. This year for the first time, she’s going all independent on a project of her own. The ever independent Piglet also scorned my help – scribbling out a drawing of an elephant (or was it a dinosaur for his teacher)?

Anyway, with nobody needing my help, the time hangs heavy on my hands. And hence this blog post where I list the top teacher’s pets, and teachers on books, movies, and TV.

Eating out with kids

I get to visit a lot of really cool dining joints because of the blog. But when it comes to eating out with the kids, I tend to visit the same familiar haunts pretty much all the time.

That’s primarily because of Piglet. He’s not very adventurous with his food and he’s still not at that stage where he will sit patiently while we eat. Of course, we have taken him to plenty of restaurants but we’ve ended up relying heavily on the iPad to keep him occupied. Not the best of situations. When we are all out together, I really like to have all devices put away as much as possible.

But there are some restaurants that hit the family friendly sweet spot just right, and we tend to visit them again and again. Here is a list of our favorite joints and why we love them.

My Ideal Yatra

Every year, I start by planning the ideal holiday. It usually involves perusing a number of travel blogs, visiting a number of travel booking sites, doing tons of currency conversions.

All of this is then followed by tons of wishful thinking. Maybe we will get upgraded to business or first class, maybe I will win a couple of tickets (btw, this actually happened once when we won a holiday to Sri Lanka)!

Our weekend in Instagram Pictures

I have been contemplating a blog layout change for quite some time. I’ve generally been feeling pretty uninspired and (oh did I mention super-busy and distracted?) lately, and the blog has been suffering a bit.

I do hope that a layout and theme change helps me to be a little more active on this space. As of now, the look is still a work in progress, and things are broken here and there, but already I feel better about the blog. I think it really needs this face-lift.

Having a pup around the house (yes, we have a pup, and a formal intro will come along later), has spurred us on to become a wee bit more active in our daily lives.

All of us have been spending more time outdoors playing with little Coco (our cutie lab), and last week, we kind of overreached ourselves and decided that we would take Coco with us on a hike up to Gudibanda fort.
