Happy Mother’s Day


                                                                       
Happy Mother's Day!

You have been a good friend, guide, companion, confidante, healer, guru and teacher to your kids. Motherhood is the combination of all these roles and much more. While executing all these tasks, sometimes you forget to pay attention to yourself. Somehow, your desires and priorities take a backseat and requirements of your kids remain of utmost importance.

Motherhood is a special role that has been endowed to a woman. As a mother, you have been amazing, generous and persistent to provide the best to your children. You have at every phase of life made efforts to protect your kids.

Mother's day is one special day when kids express their love and gratitude towards their mother for her unconditional love. This mother's day, they would make you feel special. Through their small hands and unique gestures they would thank you. You must be waiting for this day when kids would really understand your love for them. No wonder, your perseverance and feelings will always be appreciated by your kids. 

However, this time take initiative to do something special for yourself. 

                                                            
Pamper yourself on Mother's day

Pamper yourself and appreciate yourself for being a good mother. On this Mother's Day, go ahead and gift a new dress or perfume or a spa treatment to yourself. 

Spend quality time with mothers in neighborhood/ family, sharing experiences with each other or enjoying a game with them. You can plan in the nearby restaurant or arrange get-together in your backyard with some planning.

If you don’t wish to go out  and mingle then treat yourself well at home. Prepare YOUR favorite snack and watch your favorite movie; or may be relax in your lawn while reading a book of your favorite author, anything that gives you pleasure.

You mean a lot to your kids and to YOURSELF. Wishing all you mothers a very HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

When child becomes your teacher


Buenos dias!
Good morning, I mean to say.
Those words are in Spanish language. Actually I am learning Spanish from my son. This year my son opted Spanish as third language and I have asked him to teach me new words. Believe me, it is fun to learn something new from your child. By this way you can update your skills. Moreover, it also boosts the confidence of your child. All the while, you have been his teacher but now he is getting a chance to teach you. It is funny, interesting and motivating.

When I first asked him to teach me, he didn't take it seriously. But later on he realized that I am not joking. I am really interested. So we began with daily routine words like good morning, good night, see you later and bye and we used them regularly instead of English words. Through this method we were easily able to remember the new Spanish words. 

Now, we are learning the alphabet and animal names. Learning Spanish is not that difficult. The alphabet in Spanish are similar to English alphabet and one can learn them quickly.  We have decided to develop our own code language in Spanish. Surely it will be fun.

You can also do something similar and strengthen your bond with your child.  Working together in same activity definitely increases the spirits of the child as it combines enjoyment with learning.

Hasta manana  (see you later).
