Father – The unsung hero

 

Fathers, unlike mothers, are the unsung heroes to their children. They stand through the thick and thin, without anyone knowing that they are doing a lot in the background. A father and a daughter especially share a beautiful relationship.

A relationship beyond words. A relationship beyond time. He treats her like a princess, yet makes her a warrior too. He helps her build a castle, yet makes her capable of building one herself too. He protects her from bad men, yet gives her the freedom to choose too. He reads her fairy-tales, yet wants her to be the knight in shining armor herself. He wants her to fall in love, but also wants her to get back to life if she gets heartbroken.

He is her first hero, her first love. The father is the person she looks up to on how a lady should be treated. If her nurtures his wife with love, love is what is seen throughout the family. His relationship with his wife, if beautiful, paves the way for the daughter to have positive outlook on relationships.

No matter what happens in life, the daughter will always have a special place in her father’s heart ♥️

A bond, oh so special, oh so beautiful!! A bond of lifetime. The light shining between them, is the light that keeps me alive.

The puzzle

There are so many milestones that we, as parents, keep on waiting for, for our kids. The first word, the first walk, the first tooth etc. But this was one of those that I was not waiting for, rather it just happened, and made me realize, “Oh, another of her milestones!!”

Myra loves to play with puzzles. The ones that are the easiest to play are her favorites. She spends hours in library fixing the numerous puzzle games for kids there. So, we brought her some at home as well. She was able to solve many of them. But few which she found complicated, she wouldn’t even try. Well, but a game is a game. And when the kids want to play, they will play it, no matter how. So, she found her momma to her rescue for those puzzles.

Until one day, when she chooses to do it herself. Since mamma needed her time to cook biryani, the baby doll decided she wanted to try the complex puzzle.

An hour passed by, it was silence from her side. Another half an hour passed silently, and finally there was a loud shout, “I did it!!”.. I rushed towards her thinking what on the earth happened. And to my surprise, the puzzle was complete.

Well, it was just a game that she played. But for me, this was something she tried, which she never wanted to do till that time. I was really feeling proud of her, but it also made me realize that she’s growing up. And there will be many such phases or incidents which will happen in future, which might not count as milestones for some people, but for a mother, they are some of the biggest ones.

I really want to tell Myra that no matter what happens in life, never ever give up. Also, failing is not losing, you lose when you never try. So, keep trying the puzzles, keep connecting the dots, keep learning in life. Just like you did now!!

Do you also have any such milestone(s) to share about your kid(s)? Please mention in comments and let us know!!

Adios amigos!!

A day in a park

Its that time of the day again!! To get going to the park. That’s like the favorite activity for my daughter. Public parks are such an amazing recreational facilities provided to us that we should always make an effort to utilize them for the growth and development of our kids and also a tool to be used for our fitness (such as for running, jogging, yoga or even playing outdoor games like badminton, basketball etc.).

Well, I see my daughter growing in that park day by day. It amazes me to see how at first she was so reluctant to try even the easiest of kids slides. And now, she easily roams around the park crossing the difficult hurdles, climbing the ropes, going zig-zag on the big slides, crawling through the mini tunnels.

I think it’s really important to give the kids such an environment to grow, not only for their physical development and well-being, but to give them a sense of fulfillment. It can be in terms of completing a hurdle or learning to grow out of their fears by watching other kids trying something that they are reluctant to do.

These days when kids are spending more and more time in front of screens, their tiny hands going over the keys at a lightening speed, we need to make sure that we give them an environment where they can spend hours without thinking about hurting their eyes or brains going dull. I think parks are an amazing place for them to make new friends and explore themselves.

Environmental cleanliness is another thing that I teach my daughter when she is in the park. She knows that it’s really important to keep it clean in order to have a pleasant experience the next time she is in the park. Please check my YouTube video on a day to the park. The video itself will speak on the importance of taking kids to the park and seeing them in a beautiful world altogether !!

Do you take your kids to any nearby park(s) too? Do share your thoughts.

Adios amigos !!
