Make your child feel special with these 15 ideas

Our lives with our kids are going smoothly. We are happy and contended but whether our kids feel so? 
Kids are very imaginative in nature and they believe in freedom, trial runs, and frequent changes. On the other side, we adults like a stable life without much change or experiment. It's always easy to live our lives without excitement and surprise but for kids tiny surprises or random moments of being silly break the usual boredom of life and make them feel the top of the world. Here are some of the things that we parents can do to surprise our kids and make them feel special. Not every day we should do them and some of them can be done once in a while but testing out these ideas with little customization will show your kids you are thinking of them.
Some super cool ideas which kids love:
1. Your kids must be doing art/craft work. Get their artwork framed and put it in your living room. Let others know your kid's talent and when guests admire your kids, they'll feel special and happy.
2. After picking kids from school, you are heading for home. How about stopping at any ice-cream corner and let them enjoy their favorite ice-cream? If weather allows, take them to the nearest park and let them play. Life can wait for few minutes but these moments will bring lots of smiles for your kids.
3. You always teach kids how to do things, instead let your kids teach you things, like a new game on your cell phone. They'll be delighted to get the opportunity of teaching elders something.
4. Mothers, let your girls wear your jewelry for play. I remember when I was a kid, I used to love trying out my mother's necklace. For precious ones, let your daughters at least try them with a note of being careful.
5. Have you thought about wearing jewelry made by your kids? I have seen many paper jewelry projects for kids which make really awesome bracelets and other stuff.  If you wear them they'll feel so proud. 
6. Change your phone's background with your kid's snap. You can change them daily or as per day/occasion. Like festival special pic, school pic, picnic snap or any other their favorite one. 
7. Surprise your kids with having breakfast with them on the bed only. Make their favorite breakfast and have with them on any holiday.
8. Say 'yes' for things for which you usually say 'no'. Like, stopping for candy or having another chocolate piece. Let them skip dinner and order outside food. 
9. When kids play, we normally keep us busy in TV, laptop, phone, books or in other domestic chores. Make your kids perky with playing with them.
10. Send them smiley notes in their lunch box. Not always they want healthy lunch so once in a while junk food in their tiffin box can bring a big smile on their faces. 
11. Kiss their nose, forehead, and cheeks when they are happy. But don't wait to hug them whenever they feel low.
12. Postpone domestic chore for reading storybook/comic for them.
13. Make mundane things enjoyable, like a tent with old saaries, playhouses with misquoting net and bath in open using garden water pipes. 
14. Praise your kids in front of their teacher, your relatives or friends. Or make sure they hear them directly or indirectly. 
15. Go to bed early a day before and get up early on Monday morning. Instead of yelling "hurry up", get them ready early for school. Instead of going through school bus, drop them school yourself. On the way, you can wait for noticing butterflies/flowers or can visit the nearby temple.  
When you wish to execute any of the points above, is totally your call. But doing these things will definitely assure your kids that you love them, you understand them and you care what they like to do.

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.

The First Post Of #MyFriendAlexa 

Coming back to the title of this post, I know you might be awed to read it. Of course, there is no discrimination who can read the blog and who not. Our blog…

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
