I am back !!


Just incase if you were wondering where Sangrywords has been for over a month, well then I have come back to the blogosphere unfortunately with nothing really exciting this time to tell. My family has been playing pass on parcel with viral flu. For over a month and boy it has been absolutely tiring. 


It’s different when you are sick and miss your mum, but what would you when you are the mum and your little one is sick. Little over a month back, Smera started pre-school and just like most kids, she too fell sick with this change in her routine. 

All was well when she recovered in a week, but then duhddudy aka daddy fell sick, the little girl who was well recovering from the flu fell ill again. And yes not to forget the mamma and then back baby again for another 2 weeks.

While this month had been plagued with the flu but it was just as bad as it sounds there were few highlights too:
  • Smera started her play-school  and made her first painting in school
  • My mum us visited twice this month and each time she cooked us a sumptuous meal and some more to last a week
  • We celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary with a wonderful weekend getaway to Hatta ( a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city)
  • And we got the first complaint from Smera’s school for excessive use of the word daddy which reminded other kids of their dads and made them cry!

    1. :) Pranita .. It's true that's what really happened .. The word daddy is now officially banned at Blossom Nursery and credit goes to Smera ..

      She is much better back to her notorious self and yes we all are feeling better now .. Thank you so much for asking :)

  2. Aww.. That last point was so adorable. Psst! Is the mummy getting a wee bit jealous? :p

    1. Of-course I am jealous,however I must add to this - Smera is a very obedient child so just as she asked she didn't ask for daddy the next day at school instead asked for mamma and still got into trouble ... :)

      Henceforth both the words are banned :)

  9. Welcome back! Sorry to learn Mr Flu has been paying visits to your little world. You must have been thrilled by Smera's first painting and also, the leadership qualities displayed by her at school. Should we expect a post on that getaway to Hatta?

    1. Unfortunately the doctor was telling me it happens all the time once kids start school and would continue till their immunity stabilises ..
