The reason I resisted having pets for a long time in the US, even though my children wanted a puppy, is that I had many heartbreaking experiences in the past. Losing your best pet is like losing one of your family members. I had witnessed my pet dogs died on me. It was absolutely heart-wrenching to watch them die followed by horrendous feelings that would … Continue reading Crested Gecko, Alisha No more
My dad didn’t even make it to high school. He started working when he was barely fourteen or fifteen. At twenty he was already married. My mother was barely nineteen. Those ages were actually quite old to get married back then. In their times, they didn’t adopt parenting models or methods of discipline; they lived as their culture expected. They just did the next thing. … Continue reading A Wake Up Call
We recently celebrated Mr. P’s 9th birthday. I did not feel a bit that we have had this young fella for these many years. It is also a reminder to ourselves that we, too, are aging with our kids. Maybe, we like to only focus on our kid’s growth. While doing so, we either tend to forget our age or just pretend behind the veil … Continue reading Birthday Party | One Stone – Kill Two Birds
One of our favorite things to do as a family is enjoying a walk on the beach and if it so happens, see the sunset at the same time. Thought this, Over The Rhine, the song perfectly unfolded the sequence of our activities last night- I really did: Leave the dishes in the sink don’t overthink it Close up the brokenhearted piano Join me on … Continue reading A Family Activity We Enjoy:
Answering your child’s peculiar questions can be pretty daunting task sometimes. In the midst of our conversation the other day, I told my sons that once they go visit their grandparents in Nepal, they have to learn to live without power (electricity). They won’t see light most part of the day, as blackouts are quite frequent and have become a part of life. I showed my … Continue reading Poor Grandparents Don’t Have Driveway!
I woke up this morning with a heavily pounded head. Migraine is crippling me now and then. Standing straight definitely helped but lying down or inclining backwards or forwards did not help at all. Please do not tell me how it is like to have headache if you have not experienced a migraine ever. Only people with migraine can understand what we go through. Consequently, … Continue reading A Significant Gesture That Swelled Up A Father’s Heart
#YesAllWomen This is the epitome of how women are abused and violated for no reason. A reason for assaulting Tanka Maya in this case is that she allegedly lost or hid the key of her husband’s motorbike! Even if she had lost the key of the motorbike, it is inhumane to inflict such a pain on her. Beating her is driven by a bastion of … Continue reading End Domestic Violence: Unveil a Coward Hiding Behind a Veil of Machismo
As of today, I have changed thousands of diapers (nappies in Europe). This was unimaginable act for me until I became father for the first time. Changing diaper, especially, has taught me to reflect on how God has loved me thus far. At present, I need to change diapers only on my daughter, since she is just 7 months old. My two boys are well potty trained. … Continue reading Changing Diapers Has Taught Me About This Love
