Slightly distraught mom with four year old bedridden child (fractured femur) seeks ideas to keep erstwhile overactive child occupied when all he can do now is lie on his back for the next six weeks.

Ideas already covered are : television, gaming, reading, playing the mouth organ and 'changing hairstyles game', the last of which was evolved by the patient himself. " amma u close your look at my hair" "Now close your eyes again..." and so on and so forth.

All ideas will be rewarded with tremendous good will from mother...and also from the child when he is old enough to know what good will means.

My Life Savers

I woke up yesterday looking like a relative of will smith as he appears here. Obviously, something i ate did not agree with me. I suspect the reactions of the men in my life are the reason i did not lock myself up in the bathroom the whole day

Junjun : You look like my are my amma only no?

Maddy : Arch, it is SO exciting to wake up with a new woman every day!!!

:) :)

It is strange how so many mothers seem to have ensured that their children loved them, needed them, adored them, even worshipped them....but somehow left out 'respect them' from the deal.

It is not so strange that so many men can love, adore, need even worship their wives but somehow leave out 'respect' from the deal.

What then is the difference between a pet and a wife?

- Watching my dad excuse himself from the table while the rest of us were still eating :

"Why thatha said 'excuse me' when he did not burp?"

- When i made the mistake of showing him my freshly pedicured feet :

"These are your same feet?"

Holiday horror?

A holiday at your parent's home.

Makes you feel like a child again.

You become lazy, pampered and reckless.

You get your hair streaked violet (yes, you read right.)

And while you secretly think you look totally cool...

You hope when you go back,

Mr husband will still have a place

In his heart and home for you!
