Making sure that I work-out every morning for atleast half hour and the machine at the end of it shows a burn of 250Calories…
The small bit of effort in ‘dressing up’ to work doesnt go un-noticed! Everyone commenting on how good I drape the saree or how good the new dress looks on me. A pair of lens in place of thick specs, a matching bindi, eye liner, changed ear rings (I wear the one pair regularly and its kind of grown into my skin these days) and an added bracelet…
At the daycare: Ensuring the little one always has a spare set of clothes including the wipe cloths and bibs, matching coat and topi with the shirt and pant – an hour’s effort put over the weekend. And making sure he has different brkfast,different vegetable and a different snack everyday for dabba – all makes for a ‘Good Mommy’ tag! Ofcourse that makes me happy for the lack of sleep on sunday afternoon while I set his clothes for the week or the 15mins of less sleep time to pack everything…
Finally, some long forgotten messages from the hubby 😀
