New Moms wishlist

This mothers day i will be a mom to three gorgeous kids!!!! Hard to believe but ture!!!

Rewarding yes as much as it sounds its hectic!!!! Loooove every minute of it! But it comes with a price. Its like every second of my day is occupied and I plan on gathering as many stress busters around me as I can. Personal space and me time are some of the precious things compromised along with sleep! But being a veteran at this I have a couple of hacks to ease out this process without losing my entire self to the mommy cap I wear all the time!

So if you are new at this or you know someone who is going to be new at this here are a couple of things I have shortlisted which in my opinion every new mom needs right now!! :

  1. MOBY WRAP: For any new mom its an absolute must. My kids are always spending a huge amount of time on me or hanging over me. Its easily one of the cleverest way to handle work and a newborn together!!! Baby gets so cozy and comfy and sleeps in peace, while you get to do all the hard work in peace! e3899e37-c2c7-4e48-b8e7-2a8b220eb7e2.jpg._CB328304059_
  2. NECK PILLOW:For those loooong nights of nursing when you are too tired and sleepy to stay awake or even to sit up, this travel essential becomes a clever way to make life easier. Your neck stays in place and gives you one less pain to endure.588973657_977
  3. Tummy Belt: This is one essential which is an absolute must must must for every post pregnancy body. All my pregnancies were different. In the first one I bounced back in shape almost instantly. Except for the pooch. At that time i had no idea about the importance of this thing. It just happened to be around and I just wrapped it. Boy am i glad i did. Because it was absolutely amazing. it helped me heal my stitches and also kept my tummy in place. Which made it so much easier to get back into my old self. 7c
  4. Sibling Board: When I saw this concept I immediately fell in love with it!!!! I could only imagine my toddlers lit up eyes on seeing this! i like to keep my independence as a mom. And being a parent has never hampered my active lifestyle. So i was not planning to stop with my third one either. So with one infant one toddler and one preschooler in tow. This seems to me like the prefect crusading the mall device. Can’t wait to take it out for a spin.

Drink lots of water lots of soup and lots of healthy snacks to keep your mommy tummy full and your energy levels up. These are some of the best few moments of your life cherish them as much as you can. What I have learnt is that right planning and stress busters go along way in keeping your head sane. And when you are calm and in control you can obviously take a much better care of tiny people around you.

All the best to all the new mommies out there!!! 😉

 

 

 

 

 

Mothers day picnic

mothers day picnic 6Mothers are such humble easy to please souls. I am not a huge fan of fancy gift shopping. I am more of a time and effort investment person. So instead of running around the block for the perfect pair of rose gold ear rings or those pricey gadgets or rose ceramics I chose to spend time with her in a nice old fashioned picnic!!!

I cannot count how fun it was to sit back on the easy grass again and enjoy the simple delights of life! 🙂 🙂 of course we had flowers and of course we packed some yum snacks. But the mere presence in nature had this amazing spring breezy vibe to it. Which made it sooooo much more remarkable!

Planning a perfect picnic is not stressful at all. you just need to know what you need. Here is my recipe for a perfect mothers day picnic:

  1. Flowers: yes ofcourse you will be surrounded with nature but there is something so sweet and so feminine about a fresh bouquet to have on hand and to give it to your mom that is sure to bring smiles to her face. Esp if you make the little ones present it to her! sure to melt her heart 🙂

2. Pretty napkins and blanket: Yes a jute mat will do. Its not like we wont have any place to sit. But to have a nice bright spring arrangement is just too pretty to ignore. Plus it adds the special going out of your way to please mom effect to the whole picnic which is what we want right.

3. Fresh Fruits: no picnic is comeplete without some grapes and a handful of strawberries to munch on. And it is definitely not an exception for a mothers day treat. Make sure to pack some zesty fruits to entice your taste buds

4. Guacamole and good whole wheat bread: I am a sucker for good bread. I looooooove bread in every form and this paired with some too easy to whip up guacamole is just amazing. Its a truly humble but soaring taste buds recipe!

5. Sandwiches:  one of the best picnic food. Easy to assemble easy to carry and filling. so ofcourse v had sandwiches for lunch. I chose the simple egg sandwich with some hot sauce for heat. Tip: use your moms secret ingredient to upgrade them. Mine was ofcourse heat. and she loved it!!!
