The most popular beetroot cutlets by Boo's amma @momfunda with a few twists from me is here. The detailed recipe is in her story highlights along with some yummax recipe for the kids. Reserve some portion for the adults before serving as it may disappear in a blink. Dont miss a chance to try those yum recipes. .
.
I altered the recipe with the available  ingredients  in my pantry. ➡️substituted half the portion of potatoes with cooked chicken mince.
➡️didn't add cucumber.
➡️replaced peanut powder with gram dal(pottukadalai) powder.
➡️deep fried the patties.
.
.
Overall, the calorified version of hers🤦‍♀️

One of the smaller step towards the greener environment is by recycling things that takes years to degrade. One such is plastic that can be recycled in many ways and would be fun if the kids are involved. .
.
Plastic bottles can be repurposed as stationary holders, mini planters, piggy banks, mini figurines and so on. Try to avoid plastic disposables at the parties. If unavoidable, dont dispose it. Just give a rinse and can be recycled into many crafts. Lamp shade with spoons, art work with forks, paper plate puppets and so on. You can find ample files in pinterest, it's a win - win for our earth and kids. .
.
In the picture, is the pen holder made of plastic bottle to kill time on a lazy afternoon. I helped to cut the bottle, rest hafsa enjoyed doing it. .

Milestone alert- yes, it's the first science project of vaandu 1. I heard about the word 'project' only during my undergraduation. But now all these podimas are screaming about it now and then. Kudos to us for completing it, inspite of all the drama by vaandu2 for not allowing her to do.
.

Hafsa was so excited to collect the leaves and twigs, during our nature walk but the enthu disappeared when it came to sticking. The leaves were not cooperating🤣, like she said. .

If you dont start them young, they have no roots- David Walker.
.
Ever since our second child is born , the question that we hear on a daily basis is, when are you planning for a boy?! This ignited our elder one's  curiosity.
.
.
Daddy's role made a huge difference  in her approach. He used to help us to get thing done but only when we ask for it, that was not the case anymore. He started to get involved in the daily chores, changing diapers of baby sister, made her ready to school, waiting at the parlour for her haircut and many more.
.
.
We could sense a pride in her eyes when she saw her daddy with a ladle making an omelette and when he gently fixed her hair without asking for my help. She was also amazed to see mom, fixing a bug in the system which daddy cannot resolve.

#agenerationwithoutgenderbias is possible only when they are exposed to the equality/sharing in chores or parenting in their daily basis.

An intricate mandala pattern by the @lifeofrealmoms team. I am not satisfied with the outcome. Wrong choice of colour, you may ask but it is the wrong choice of timing🤣I must say. Never attempt a mandala colouring with a grumpy preschooler who is not ready to share the colours and need exactly the same colour what I was using🤷‍♀️🙄. Can you witness that no shades of green being used??? It's because she was holding those for the entire process and God knows the reason behind it🙄

Respecting each other's choices makes any relationship better. The space that I expect from my husband is equally important to the space that my daughter expects from me. She will be six in few months, the decisions made by her is tough for me to get along in many ways. The thing that worked for us is to communicate. .

I love to read with kids. It definitely  calms both our minds but there are days when I need a time off for my sound mind. On such days, colouring book or an activity book comes to the rescue. Plenty of times like waiting for my turn at a clinic, to devour the dessert at a restaurant  when she's done with the meal, to just lay around at a picnic, during our road trips, every single time when my energy is completely drained out- colouring book is the one that helped me through. Though vaandu 2 is least interested about books and colours, she still needs to have what her akka has🤣😁

The person I reach out when I am anxious is my amma. She is my calming person. She has answers for every worries of mine. ❣
❣
She was with me during all my breakdowns from first ever backbiting friends to stupid fights with my husband. She listens to all the trash and rants which certainly lifts my feeling. ❣
❣
The first few months post my delivery was so traumatic, latching problems,ripped nipples, horrible nights and she's the one who didn't leave my side for a micro second. ❣
❣
I am a hard nosed person and I never accept my fault at first place. She's the one who accepts the fit thrown by me and give a better picture of the issue. May almighty bless her with good health and less polambals from me😁#inshaallah.
.
PS- A sweet send off to nanni, who helped us during the first three months of our second innings too.

An activity that kindles my creativity is always therapeutic and I discovered that four years back, when hafsa was 15 months old.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It all began with a craft from newspaper rolls, then learnt to do paper quilling,crocheting, hand lettering. Everytime I learned a new skill, it kind of soothes me. But it all took a back seat once wafa is born. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Things were not in place as it used to be and I missed them badly which reflected in my mood. We were planning for our first road trip, an idea banged me when I was preparing a busy bag for by then kindergartener.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why not prepare something that calms my mind??,though it was unrealistic when I have to travel with two minions. That was the moment  when I decided to carry a pocket friendly notebook and a  pen. It's a MUST in my bag.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I scribble, doodle, draw until I am composed but it never happened in a go. I kept doing that even in a small window I get. The ultimate aim of it is to ease my spirit and it did #alhamdhulillah
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS- Its a zentangle art created over the weekend and that's vaandu 1's version.

For me, a rejuvenating place is a latched toilet. Ever since motherhood hit me, I forgot the idea of locking the bathroom door and it's been five plus years. The door gap is directly proportional to the age of the child. 
The bladder of the preschooler is full and ready to burst ,only when you sit on a commode. The toddler will bring the world of entertainment to your footstep to keep you engaged.

Ask a mother, she will tell you the peace that she gets from five minutes of uninterrupted/ unsupervised loo session. A few minutes of alone time in the locked loo, revitalise the energy to tackle the motherhood hurdles.

A weekday afternoon is the toughest, as hafsa will be tired but not ready to rest, hungry but would love to skip the meal, cranky if I move an inch. This all happens once she's back from school. The thing that lifts her up is the one that involves both of us from coloring to baking or a read aloud session of her favourite tale.
So, few days back we did this duet colouring which was also a mood lifter for me.

I cannot spare the time whenever the toddler is in nap, it will always be my time🤣. I will cook when she's around. .
We will sing along, make some funny noises, with few of her toys( read -onions, potatoes) for our company, some messy play with the scraps of the vegetables, exploring the valves of the pressure cooker, stacking the tumblers and so on.
.
Meanwhile, I will manage to cook a decent dish to fill our tummies. But, yesterday's was not as stated above due to the restless night (thanks to teething-I believe). .
That 'bulb' moment happened when I was washing the purple cabbage with wafa pulling my legs. Tada. .
Reserved that water for a quick sensory bottle. Thrown in the some items in the pantry- macaroni and corn kernels, few curry leaves and few drops of dish soap for the frothy effect. The colour of the water with the bubbles was definitely a visual treat. What then??! Engrossed toddler and insane mama to whip our quick lunch.

Yesterday, when everyone was busy to kickstart the first day of the week in 2019. I was busy colouring the mandala that's a godsend by @lifeofrealmoms . .
Despite the tiredness due to the rough fortnight, I did it right away. I was awake from 3 AM and that didn't stop me from doing the thing that I love. .
Luckily, Wafa had a nap and finished it without any interruption. I would have prepared the lunch or lay down wideawake just to make sure she rests well or would have ended up with the tub of ice cream or a huge slice of pastry. But, I did the thing that comforts my mind and soul. .
We, Mothers, don't need tips or home remedies to dark circles rather we need things to keep our sanity in place. The team behind @lifeofrealmoms definitely got that point and came up with such a great idea.The first part of the colouring was done by chatting with amma over a phone call and later was completed by listening to songs. .
Oh boy, i must admit it kept my mind busy and so excited to see the beautiful outcome. That piece of happiness made my day and rest of the things just fell in place. I could relate with the saying ' you cannot pour from an empty cup', so true in my case, at least for yesterday.
.
One thing that i would like to implement in 2019 is putting myself first. Definitely, all days are not as same as yesterday but if i try to squeeze in some 30- 40 minutes of my time before everything else, i believe i could see a change mentally.
