By Tharini, Dipali, Parul...and since I'm going through a dry spell (and still posting every day, sheesh), I'm actually going to do this tag. And no, Rohini, I'm not taking a blog break. Yet!
"Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better."
Ok, here goes:
Family: Okay, here's one on my beautiful grandma and her award-worthy SMS's.
Friend: This is a post involving one of my oldest friends, Abhi.
Yourself: I don't have too many posts on myself but I was rather amused to read my own post on ugly babies, written last year. How much becoming a mom has changed me! I sound almost like a troll to myself in this post, although I know I was just trying to be funny. But then again, last week, I was looking at Peanut's earliest pictures and said 'No way! She was never that ghastly...or was she?'. So, in short, I still think new parents (including me) overestimate the beauty of their babies. So there!
( Please, other blogging mamas, please continue to be my frands even after you read this post...imagine me beseeching you with big puppy dog eyes...say you lowe me still...)
Your Love: Well, this is hardly a romantic post but it stars my love and gives a pretty good idea of the magnetic personality he has - all revealed when he met Khalid. Oh, and more recently, this and this set of conversations.
Anything you like: Okay then, so here's something I wrote way before I had a blog, like 5 years ago. My experiences in conversing with Vichit, my driver on a work stint in Bangkok.
I tag nobody because everyone I know either has already done this tag, or are idiots who never take up my tags!
hah! you're worse than the rest. allow me to link up to it and have you bombed by the other mothers :DReplyDelete
Happy birthday :)
Madmomma: So, does that mean you lowe me still or no?ReplyDelete
Cee Kay and Saurabh: Thanks so very much for the wishes...:-)
Have read all these posts before and enjoyed them all.ReplyDelete
Y, you were almost a troll! Peanut has humanised you. Still lowe u.
As for Vichit, we were living in Thailand when my elder son was born.
Imagine a complicated, bed-rest ridden pregnancy and emergency c-sec in a country where even very few docs speak English, let alone other medical staff. Even obtaining veg. food in the hospital seemed like a major achievement. But we survived, my siamese (cat)son is a bit older than you:)
Read all these posts and am back to say that DON'T EVER DO THIS AGAIN! After reading one post of yours, I am a giggling, rolling-on-the-floor mess. Imagine what happens when I read 7 in one go!ReplyDelete
