Another trip back home with my travel buddy





My recent Delhi trip was nothing short of a roller-coaster rider and the credit goes to my little one. As my husband says “adventure and you can never be apart”. There are few things I wanted to leave for you, Smera to read when you grow up, considering my memory is not that worth mentioning. So here it goes, buckle up my love and read on what you did.
§     Baggage belt is meant to move baggage. Baggage does not include us humans, darling. Hence it’s not meant for you to run on. This was your second attempt but your super-alert mamma caught you!

§   To make up for the lost opportunity, you made me and Grandma run through the entire terminal 1 at Dubai and very conveniently lost your shoe.

§     I somehow managed to retrieve the shoe but you preferred to walk without it. Am I am thankful on that bit since I didn’t have to run again searching for the shoe, but unfortunately the socks had to be discarded.

§     You slept like an angel through the flight, like you always do and if you are not sleeping you do make sure the fellow passengers are thoroughly entertained!

§     Your baby food bottle broke in my bag soaked my voice recorder which had become a constant companion for me to leave voice notes for my next big blog idea.

§     Grandpa patiently took charge to clean up the mess and separating sticky lactose from high-tech electronics.  It’s currently under repair, but let’s pray that we can fix it.
§     Next time you are visiting Delhi, we will make sure that Rani di (aka our help) gets her annual vacation, since your clothes give the impression that you’ve been busy doing her job.

§     Considering the amount of beating and fighting you did with Grandpa and Uncle Sanju, wrestling could be a good career option for you.

§     But if that’s not good enough, you could try what Grandma thinks – athletics, given that you are always on the run.

§     Aunty Veda taught you new dance steps this trip, so you make sure you practice it well. And her bangles are not meant to be worn on your ears they are meant for hands.

§     And an interesting encounter with the God, more on that in the next post.

P.S. - Incase you've missed Smera's escapades on her first trip, you can read it here.

    Super alert mama... Great job! Smera will either be proud or she'll think you're exaggerating ;)

    So whom did she gets this mischief in her genes from? Mom or dad? I think I know the answer ;)

    1. I am not sure of what Smera would think when reads them but I am sure she will know that we love her a lot !!

      As far as the naughty genes are concerned I would like believe that I have very little input on that front :)
