Nid’s 7th Birthday Letter

Happy Birthday, my precious darling.

Today I wish you all the happiness the world has to offer. I wish you success and wisdom with everything you do. I wish you strength and tolerance to overcome every obstacle and fear. But most of all, I wish you love; may your heart forever be filled by it and may you always project that same love out into the world.

This past year you have grown so much as a young lady, sometimes working your magic on keeping me in line. Most days I wonder how I got so blessed to become your mother. You have been my strength this past year, helping me get through the many obstacles and fears that overcame my mind and heart.

The older you get the more I realize that I have a best friend growing before my eyes. You are the love of my life. You and I both know I never liked children, I still don’t today. But you, my darling, have taught me that there are little angels like you that fortunate mothers like me get blessed with which make loving children so important and necessary. You have taught me to love, to be patient and to accept what life gives me.

Your cleverness and intelligence makes me question my own intelligence. Your maturity makes me wonder which one of us is the mother and which one of us is the child. Your sassiness and wittiness has shown me a side of myself that I don’t know yet if I should celebrate or fear. But most of all, the love and affection you portray to me and the rest of the world has taught me to be a better person.

You are the blessing every mother asks for when praying for a child. Someone up there must really love me because I was blessed to have you come into my life.

I love you baby girl and wish you nothing but the best life has to offer. Happy 7th Birthday, Nid! Xoxo


Happy Birthday Little Nephew

Dearest Nephew, I wish you all the love in the world. I wish you tons of happiness and success and growth.

You are the son I never had and you are one of the most dearest people in my life. I know I don’t show it as much as I should and that’s mostly because I don’t know how to act around children, even my own Nid leaves me all confused at times; but know that I love you more than you’ll ever know and more than I’ll ever show.

Your maasi will be here for you whenever you need a little push and whenever you need a place to go just to be yourself and have fun. But I’ll also be here for you when you’re doing something wrong, I will be the one to kick your butt for it and then I will be your guidance and your strength and make sure whatever you do in your life, you succeed at it. I will be that friend you can come to when you’re scared to talk to your mom or dad. I’ll be that reassurance when you can’t find yourself in the dark and I will hold your hand and walk with you through every scary, dark tunnel and into the rays of the sun.

For you my dear, are a part of me and hold one of the greatest spots in my heart.

I love you, Ujji and even if I don’t show it enough, don’t you ever forget that.

Happy Birthday sweetheart!

Nid’s 4 Year Birthday Letter

Nid started junior kindergarten a month ago and now her 4th birthday is coming up. I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by. She’s growing up so quickly and my mother instincts want to hang on to her and stop her from soaring away. But I know it’s good for her and me that she grow, become independent and soar towards her independence. It’s just so hard letting go.She’s going to be 4 years old today and I just cannot believe where the past four years have gone by. It’s amazing how much Dev and I have learned because of and from this little person. We’ve learned tolerance, patience, to love without expectation and unconditionally. We’ve learned how a soft giggle and silent smile can bring overwhelming joy to our hearts. We’ve learned to multitask and go with the flow. We’ve learned that you could “deep clean” your home, spending multiple hours doing so and it could look like a tornado hit it 10 minutes later. She’s taught us this growing a year older is a blessing because the year ahead will be a whole new set of adventures and experiences to mark in my memoirs. 
And now when her fourth birthday is upon us, I just want to thank the Gods above for bringing this little being into my life at the most unexpected time ever. She is the blessing I needed and I am so grateful for her. She is the purpose of my smiles and the person who gives me that warm, tingling feeling in my heart. 
Happy 4th Birthday Nid! Mommy and Daddy love you dearly! 

Ni’s 31st Month Birthday Letter & Starting Pre-School Details

myangelHappy 31 Months, baby. Mommy is sorry for not writing your 2 and a half years birthday and this letter sooner. I’ve battled physical pains and emotional stresses a lot lately and it completely slipped my mind to write these letters for you.

So much has happened over the past couple of months. You are 2 and a half years old, baby girl! Wow! How has time flown by so quickly? Last Friday, June 5th was your last day at daycare. You didn’t understand what that meant, but mommy certainly did. It was a sad day to say goodbye to all of your friends and the loving staff. But when one door closes, another will open and it did!

You started pre-school on Monday. You were terrified by all the new faces and environment. I was terrified to leave you with strangers once again. I almost cried while speaking to the supervisor but she reassured me that you would be well-taken care of and would get used to your new “school” soon. 4-days in and you are definitely getting used to it and have begun liking it there. But mommy still doesn’t seem comfortable yet.

My heart still pounds with anxiety every time daddy calls me and tells me he’s just dropped you off. I still feel the urge to call the pre-school to check-up on you and ask if you’ve eaten, slept or had any issues with the other kids or teachers. I called the first two days and the teachers reassured me that you only cried when daddy dropped you off and once involved in activities, the tears went away.

Yesterday, you didn’t cry at all; which is a great sign that you’re enjoying herself.

I can’t believe you have become such a big-girl. You are so independent now and it’s amazing. You’re not a baby anymore, except for when you get a boo-boo and need mommy to kiss it all better and yell at the piece of furniture that hurt you (which you bumped into yourself because you’re clumsy).

You also have a “special friend”. His name is Jason. He’s a little toy doll at your old daycare that has become your best-friend. Everything you talk about has Jason involved in it. When I go back to your old daycare to pick up the rest of your things, I’ll take a picture of Jason and send it to your email, so that you can remember him forever!

Anyway, sweetheart. Please keep growing into this beautiful, loving girl that you are becoming and keep making mommy and daddy fall in love with a little more every day. We love you, darling angel. Happy 31st Birthday.


Ni’s 29th Birthday Letter

image1Happy 29th Birthday, sweetheart!

I can’t believe that you are almost a 2 and half years old and will be going to pre-school at the end of next month. Time has flown by so quickly and you are growing up so much. You’re making better sentences in both Hindi and English. The funniest is that you copy the way everyone talks, like when nani says “No” you like copying her and stretching out the no into Noooooooo. Then there are the times when you know just how to push my buttons and do everything mommy asks you not to. Right when mom is about to get angry, you start laughing and hug me and say “showwie”. I love the way you say showwie. It’s the cutest in the world.

Nani bought you a new tea set a few weeks ago because you always ask me if I want a double-double coffee. So, she decided she would get you your very own tea set to make coffee for me in. You and I have enjoyed lots of pretend coffee and tea and have lots of tea parties doing so.

I love watching daddy tease you and you fight him to let you go. I love seeing the two of you spend so much time together and laugh and giggle and play games. It’s amazing seeing the two of you together. He’s so in love with you and you with him. It makes me feel happy seeing both of you laugh and smile so much.

This month hasn’t been quite exciting. I guess, most months aren’t. Life is going as it should be and we are living as we should be. Sometimes, little things happen here and there that stir the routine. But then things get back on track and we move along. That’s mainly how this month has been as well.

You spent a couple of days last weekend at your grandparent’s house, mommy needed some rest since she hadn’t slept properly all week. Your grandparents enjoy having you over. You and nanu spend so much time doing mischievous things and teasing nani. They love you dearly and every time you come back home, they feel lonely without you. They always tell me that their home feels empty without your giggles. So, I’m shipping you over to their place this weekend too. They’ll enjoy their time with you and you always love being there as well. Plus, having nani and nanu take care of you, I’ll get to do my spring cleaning and seriously tidy up our home.

Anyway, sweetheart, know that mommy and daddy love you dearly. We enjoy seeing you grow and are blessed to have such an amazing little angel in our lives. Kisses!

Ni’s 23 Month Birthday Letter

Happy belated 23 months my little angel!

I’m sorry darling, for not writing your letter sooner. Mommy has been battling a terrible tooth issue and bacterial infection and has barely been able to do anything else other than try to get better.

I don’t have much to write about this month. Mommy has been sick and so nothing exciting has happened. We are preparing for your birthday party at the end of the month. I can’t believe you’re almost 2 years old sweetheart. Time has flown by so quickly and you’ve grown so much.

Remember mommy and daddy will love you forever and always be here for you. Happy belated 23rd month birthday again, angel.

Ni’s 19 Month Birthday Letter

Happy 19 Month Birthday, my darling angel. You’re already a toddler! How quickly you are going continues to amaze me. Time is flying by and everyday you are crossing another milestone off your list.

You’ve learnt to say, eyes, nose and mouth and can even point to them. You can unzip and take off your jacket on your own and even your shoes. You’re now walking up and down the stairs with a little support and go down the slide by yourself like a big girls.

Your vocabulary continues to grow. But sometimes mommy forgets you’re listening and will say a bad word and you’ll repeat it right away. The one bad word you constantly say is, “oh shit”. I know it’s not a good thing for you to be saying, but it’s adorable and you say it at the perfect time.

It’s been a busy and stressful month for mommy; which is why I haven’t written often on my blog. My boss is away and won’t be back for another couple of months, so there’s a lot of burden on mommy’s shoulders at work. Plus, mommy has to have surgery in July to have her gallbladder removed, so I’ve been in a lot of pain and suffering due to that.

Something else has been going on with us that I am not quite ready to talk about right now, but just so you know, it’s completely changed our lives and we are soon going to be moving to a new home because of it.

Anyway baby, this is your birthday letter and I’m supposed to tell you how much daddy and I love you and all the things we did this month. We had a great day at the zoo. You seemed to really enjoy it and even brought home a new friend you call happy and baby. He’s the adorable stuffed panda in the photo above. You really take care of him all the time and love him.

Ok love, that is all for now. Know that mommy and daddy love you dearly. God bless you for coming into our lives. Hugs and kisses! And Happy 19 Month birthday!
