Birthday no 12

We tried a Minecraft cake which was not too kuch appreciated.
Celebration was spread over two days. One day for friends and the real day for family.

Food as usual was pizza and stuff around that- finger food, juice etc

The return gift were pen and Chinese metal puzzles that the children surprisingly liked.

And the kids played dark room. Sigh
I only remember the goggles and laughter and a camradiere evidently visible and palpable. .
Sigh. The boys have grown

Double trouble double fun a supermom's guide to raising twins

Buy the book here http://amzn.to/2t19y4L

Welcome to the world of thinking-on-the-feet parenting. A world where questions are answered and answers are questioned, where one day segues into another without a warning sign and where intense exhaustion co-exists with blissful happiness—the true signs of parenting. 
Double Trouble, Double Fun is Riti Prasad's hilarious, realistic and tell-all chronicle of raising twins during their early childhood. She delivers an irreverent insider's account of parenting through a decade that has seen the best and the worst of parenting theories, the boom of internet moms, the battle between working and stay-at-home moms, as well as other parenting after-shocks. 
In her thought-provoking memoir, she questions accepted parenting norms and expectations, struggles to come to terms with the ever-expanding scope of motherhood and races against time to fulfil them. 
Sifting through memories of her parenting tactics and theories, Riti delivers a power-packed punch of a book that negotiates through challenges of pregnancy and parenting, pearls of wisdom, nuggets of humour, screams of frustration, sighs of exasperation and tears of joy and disappointment in equal measures. 
Written through the lens of a career-invested, borderline-workaholic and delegation-savvy mom, this book shares a parenting journey navigating through poopy diapers, potty training, balanced diets, tiring holidays, PTA meetings and workplace triumphs and disappointments.

Physics Pun Time


I ask- What happens when a wedge is pushed down  between two objects ? 

Ojas- Mamma what happens when a veg eats 

Me- ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก, ignores, continues with questions 

Ojas- he gets cut because Veg= wedge 

Me - couldn't help but ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ then pick the phone to broadcast.

Historically Challenged

Records of later vedic period found in - Upanishads.
Teachings of budha found in - Upanishads????
Info about Mauryan empire found in- Upanishads!!!!

Meanwhile I wait with tremendous patience (not) when the children will let go of the poor Upanishads.
