How we think before and after becoming a Mother..

After we become mother, our thought process changes a lot. You agree? Along with waistlines, sleep patterns and patience level, the biggest thing that changes in ourselves, is our Minds. Now what we eat, what we do and what we say, depend upon our mother side to a great extent.
Here are some of the examples that show how a common woman thinks before and after having kids :
  • While shopping cloths:
    Before : I need this dress in light color. This will go best with my nude shoes. The size looks perfect for me. 
    After : I need this dress in Black. And it would have been good if this has option of elastic waist. I need to try it,I am not sure what's my size these days.
    • Inside a footwear shop:
    Before : Oh beautiful! I need those wedges. I would also buy those pencil heels. I would look slimmer in these.
    After : This store really has a bad collection of flip-flops. And they don't have colors in flats. Who buys those 4 inches in multi-color?
    • Finding a strange substance over bath towel:
    Before : This must be make-up. But I should not use it.
    After : Is that poo? Vomit? Permanent marker? For now I would use the other side of it, that looks clean.
    • Hearing a baby crying in public:

      Before : What type of mother she is? She can't calm down her baby !
      After : Poor mother!
      • Seeing a toddler wailing in a toy shop
      Before : Parents should teach kids how to behave in public area.
      After : Thank goodness it's not me!
        • In a dinner party:
      Before : I love salads. You know it's healthy and fresh. 
      After : God I am so hungry, when this dinner will start ? Till then let me finish this mac and cheese from my son's plate.
      • Call for a kitty :
      Before : It would be fun to go . "Sure I would love to come!"
      After : Hmm.. I don't have any good fit dress. And it would take almost an hour to dress up kids and their diaper bags. "Let's see If I can come."
      • Planning a family outing :
      Before : Let's go to that xyz restaurant. The ambiance is so romantic there.  
      After : Mac'D would be best. We'll have any xyz burger. And if you still feel hungry, I'll cook khichdi back home. 
      • About motherhood:
      Before : I have heard it's hard. But I don't think it's THAT hard.
      After : It's hard and even harder. People say it would get better with time but I don't think it'll get easier. 
      Still we all love being a Mother, isn't it?

      My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

      Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

      The Hate Story

      I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

      The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

      I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

      The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

      Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

      Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

      This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

      We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

      Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
