Few things I learned about diapering babies

My son is 2 now but he is not yet potty trained. He even gives false alarms for peeing so in his crèche he remains in diapers. It's been one and half years since I am buying/ordering diapers. And I am in love with the person who came with the idea of diapers. These little, nearly cloth type pieces have made parents' life so easy and I now hardly find anyone who doesn't use diapers for her babies. With each diaper I changed ever in my life, I learned a lesson. It's no less than mastering any skill which gets perfection after each attempt. These are few funny, ridiculous, possibly useful, and hilarious things I learned about diapering my son:
1. If you want to dress your baby in his nicest and most expensive outfit, never forget to make them wear diapers. The probability of blow-out is more in the case of new outfit.
2. Be careful if you baby is relating to cartoon characters printed over diapers. If you change the brand you may have to face a denial of wearing them from your baby
3. Don't make your baby wear his/her diaper until the last moment if you are going for a party. Babies can sense than mumma is now doing makeup and the same moment they make you change them.
4. If your toddler is standing very still and is quiet, he/she is probably pooping.
5. If your toddler is hiding in a corner, he/she is probably pooping with thinking something.
6. If your baby has a weird smile or making a strange face, they are for sure pooping.
7. If you are at your relative's place and you found people sniffing the air subtly, you should probably check your baby’s diaper.
8. Always ask before you put a poo-diaper in the garbage at someone else’s house.
9. Never go for a car ride or road trip without an extra pair of clothes for yourself. For baby you anyway carry them but you can't enjoy the trip in wet/soiled cloths.
10. When you start per-ordering diapers, you should know that your mind has accepted that they are simply a boon and you can’t miss ordering them.
11. Most of the times babies poo in fresh diapers.
12. When you are changing your newborn, you feel poo in a diaper is better. But when you start changing your toddler, you feel poo in any diaper is yuck, no matter how expensive the diaper is.
13. Be cautious when changing your baby boy. It goes far.
14. Someday you may face a diaper situation when you feel gross and you wouldn't even know where to begin cleaning. But take a deep breath and concentrate on the smallest area. You will eventually get it all clean.
15. If your toddler has understood potty-training quickly, it’s not because you are awesome at it, you are really lucky.
I am still waiting for the time when I would stop ordering extra stock of diapers. But I think I'll miss them. Diapers are really best friends for mothers. Are not they?

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:

#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.
