Amazon Kindle For Kids.....

I am a voracious reader and mother of twins too, so my hubby called it a dangerous combination !!! (Ha-Ha-Ha) Well I am not agree with him. I love reading that's why I am blogger by choice. I always pray to God please my babies must inherit this habit from me (finger cross).

My toddler growing so fast, both Shourya and Naksh are in Nursery now, this is exact time to introduce them to books and specially reading. I am tech savvy Mom, and always search for a good gadgets for my naughty kids, which help them to learn fast.

I am a shopaholic too, and Amazon is one of the best and trusted site for online shopping. Today I stumbled upon a very wonderful gadget Amazon Kindle For Kids. It quickly catch my attention and I check its features.  All-new attractive design is thinner and lighter, and now available in two color of black or white. Long lasting battery life. No screen glare, even in bright sunlight, unlike tablets, easy on your child eyes, just like like real paper.  Shop Kindle for Kids Bundle and #StartAStory . A mom recommendation......

Amazon specially designed with Kids in Mind. Kids can read books in a simple way. For example, kids can search before they know how to type by using Characters – for example, tap on images for “Dinosaurs”, “Monkey”, “Cinderella, or “fish.”

One more feature which I like the most is parent can choose and approve the contents. So parents can have peace of mind that kids won’t access inappropriate content or websites. A complete parental control. With this amazing Amazon Kindle Free Time, kids can track their reading progress for each book and also earn achievement badges for reaching milestones.

Features like Word Wise and Vocabulary Builder support real-time vocabulary development, which means kids can read more challenging books. Kids can adjust the text size. Also share library with family and friends.

sometimes “Oops” happens.....

As a mother of naughty twins, this feature is just like a blessing. I have no need to worries if Shourya and Naksh drop it. Or spill some liquid on it. Kindle comes with 2-year extended warranty, include water damage. It comes with kid-friendly cover. This cover guard its screen from scratches.

Here I want to share my experience  with all of you. I remember the day when I Shourya and Naksh both sit on my lap and I started reading a story of Mogali a famous character from Jungle Book series. Just a few days back we all saw a movie and both are very excited to read the same story. Both listen to me very carefully, ask me question about it. It was very special MeTime with my adorable kids.

Catch Up on Lost Growth in Kids !!!

As a mother of twins I always worried about by babies growth.  Both of my Boys Shourya and Naksh are blessed with fussy eating habits with completely different likes and dislikes. Well jokes apart like any other parent my main concern is to feed them nutritious complete food.

As a mother I also grow up with my Shourya and Naksh, with the time I learn to deal fussiness positively. As a mother I want to develop good eating habits in them so they can have healthy childhood and #CatchUpOnGrowth.

Its very important to visit the doctors regularly and ask for healthy diet for kids, as a parents we have to make this habit and follow this routine since the child born. Having a healthy food and complete diet is a new milestone in child development.

Shourya and Naksh both are in Nursery, when I go to their school to pick them up and see them  playing with their classmates, suddenly some questions comes in my mind Is my child lighter in weight , shorter in height than other kids?? This types of questions continuously hit in my mind.
As a mother I know no child in the world grows at a perfectly steady rate throughout the period of childhood.

My Pediatric a told me that child’s growth is an important indicator of his overall well-being. And every parent must keep a regular watch on child’s normal physical as well as mental growth is extremely important.

Recently I come across a growth plus calculator. This is very easy to use and helpful for all the young parents to track how your child is growing. They were show you a chart of your child growth and we can also download that chart. This is the link.

What are the main cause of slower growth in kids?

There are so many reason of slow growth in child, some of them may be completely risk-free as some kids will catch the growth when they get older. They gain weight and their height also increase.
However, there are some other serious reasons for the slower growth of the kids. It may certain disease which affects liver or digestive system or poor nutrition. In some cases it may be hereditary that kids body is not making enough growth hormone, which is responsible for making them grow tall .

But, the most common reason among the above is that the meal time is not a very pleasant experience for both kids and parents, it became a battlefield for them. Young and new mom don’t know how to handle this and became panic.

What exactly we need to do to Catch Up On Growth?

Horlicks Growth Plus - with 23 vital growth nutrients - is a great addition to your child’s daily breakfast routine. Giving Horlicks at breakfast time leaves you reassured that you have provided your children with a great start to the day! As a parents we all know the importance of breakfast for a child to start a day. A morning meal with complete nutrients helps child physical and mental development.

Pediatric Experts say children need more protein than adults for proper growth. Insufficient protein i may lead to slower growth in kids. So, proper diet rich with proteins is extremely important for the child.

Involve your child in cooking, I am sure just like my Shourya and Naksh so many kids would love to prepare their breakfast. This year I create a kitchen garden in my house backyard and plant some veggies there, off course Shourya and Naksh love gardening too. Both love to see their small plants now  grow  into vegetables.

Wake up to a Gold Morning !!!

Leave the worries of last night to darkness and let the light of motivation and inspiring things take control of your mind and actions. Start a beautiful morning and end up with a successful and blessed day. – By Justin Mayer

What a wonderful and positive thought to start a beautiful day. I am a morning person just like my grandfather, we all call him “Pappa” he taught us to get up in early morning. When I heard about this lines “Wake up to a Gold Morning” I went back in my childhood memories, I still remember how he used to drop us in our school in the morning. 

My day starts at 5 in the morning. Both Shourya and Naksh are in nursery now, so I have to prepare their Tiffin first. And then the real struggle begins to wake up the kids and make them ready for school.  After dropping them to the school my day actually started. As I am a fitness freak I never skip my work out. I do aerobics and dance for one hour every day. 

This year I made so many resolutions for myself, keep myself fit is one of them. And Dance is something which filled tremendous positive energy in my mind and body. Dance makes my morning gold. After doing these entire things I return to my home and go to my wash room for freshen up, my morning turn 24 carat gold when I see Colgate 360° Charcoal Gold tooth brush. Apart from its stunning looks, it also cleans my teeth, tongue, cheeks and gums. No wonder, it's the called “Gold Standard of Whole Mouth Cleaning”.  It is a new product by the well known and trusted worldwide brand, Colgate.

If you value your teeth, and want to have good teeth without cavities then Colgate 360° Charcoal Gold tooth brush is something that one can go for. This wonder brush comes with very slim bristles which reach the insides of the teeth easier; the brushing is smoother than ever happen to me. The black bristles in the middle part are supposed to be charcoal infused. #Colgate360GoldMornings tooth brush keeps you feel fresh all the day and believe me this works.

So in my point of view every morning can be a Gold morning. The sun is new each day. For me, my twinkle twins Shourya and Naksh smiling faces makes my every morning gold. I love thinking about them and when I remember their smiling face this actually make my day awesome. Every morning I think about the last day spend with my kids, laughing, dancing and singing with them, teach them small words and there meaning which put a sweet little smile on my face. 

So my friends be early riser, and don't miss that beautiful early morning light. #Colgate360GoldMornings

#DoYourHomeWork - Plan a bright future for your bright Child!

As a mom of twin’s toddlers, I can easily relate myself with this word “HOME WORK”. And whole day I continuously screaming on them babies Do Your Home Work. Yesterday my elder son Shourya come to me and repeats my sentence adding “Mumma Do your Home Work”. 

I remember before having kids how casually I was using this idioms #DoYourHomeWork on everyone around me. My friends, my family member and specially my Hubby, anyone of them did any mistake; I immediately caught them and tell them this wills not happen to you if do your home work. Proper planning saves you.

Motherhood is a very emotional responsibility and I like to mention here a financial responsibility too.  As a mother it is my responsibility to encourage my kids to explore fields of their choice with confidence. As a parent I want to share this with other parents also that our kids have innumerable career choices. Whatever they choose to be, we need to be prepared both emotionally and financially.

As a young Mom now it’s my turn to do my home work.  So I start planning today and take one step closer to securing my child’s future.  Recently I come across this New Investor Education Awareness Campaign by Axis Mutual fund. Their goal is to make parents aware about children's aspiration and how to plan for child's future.

Axis Mutual Fund team have done a lot of research on how parents plan for their child's future and after meeting so many parents they come to this conclusion that many parents are not having exact idea about how much education would cost in near future. While some parents still wants their children to choose conventional career to have a secure and safe future. So being a parent we actually need to do our home work and help our child to chase his or her dream.

#DoYourHomework, check this site,  they have information about many career options that kids have today, the education courses around them as well as a calculator that will help you to understand the financial plan for your child. There is a little treat for your youngster as well in terms of story books and activity sheets that can be downloaded easily.

As parents we all say this to our children “Be who you want to be, the world is an open playground. Go, win the world”!

HP Star Wars Fun Side Challenge !!!

I am a die hard fan of STAR WARS, means everyone loves it. As a tech savvy person it’s very my kind of thing. I always had a dream that I wake up to the sound of a fighter plane. There is silence in my dark room. I can see Darth Vader standing in front of me, talking with me. I can see his hand, as he holds a 39.62cm square sized thing that is glowing with red back-lit keys. The dark side graphics of that thing create an inner force inside me and I move forward. Since my childhood I dream this.

I want to ask all my readers just imagine that you are in ‘Star Wars’ Movie and it turns out to be a reality when you have got ‘Star Wars Special Edition Notebook’ besides you.

Hardcore fans will appreciate added Star Wars shade on the Star Wars™ Special Edition notebook. Aurebesh font allows customers to type in Galactic Base Standard language for a truly engaging Star Wars experience. The Aurebesh font is located with other standard fonts in the font library.

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake - Sugar Free Dessert Challenge !!!

Very rich in taste, high in protein, low in fat, no sugar, and roughly 150 calories per slice — this No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake makes a perfect cool and creamy summer treat!

All you need for this recipe is

For the cheesecake

250g digestive biscuits
100g butter, melted
1 vanilla pod
600g soft cheese
100g icing sugar
284ml pot double cream
Use Sugar Free Natura instead of sugar

For the strawberry mousse

1. Prepare gelatin. In a small saucepan, pour cool water over gelatin, mixing until the water is fully absorbed.
2. Place saucepan on the stove and stir constantly until the gelatin is completely dissolved; 1 or 2 minutes. Do not let it reach a boil. Remove from stove and set aside to cool.
3. Add strawberries to the bowl of a food processor and process until they become a smooth puree.
4. Add Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and powder sugar and continue processing. Finally, add prepared gelatine, processing until fully incorporated.
5. Pour strawberry mixture over the cheese layer, using a spatula to ensure that it is evenly distributed. Return to the fridge for several hours until it is fully set, preferably overnight.

Prepare a Cheesecake

1. Crush the digestive biscuits and set it as base of cake and make a layer of this powder in the pan. In a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and Sugar Free Natura on medium-low speed with the paddle attachment until smooth.  Sugar-Free Natura add the sweeten the taste and also makes the mixer very creamy
2. Add the vanilla extract.
3. Add the strawberry topping, except the 3/4 cup you have reserved for the top layer.
4. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until medium peaks.
5. Gently fold the whipped cream into the strawberry cheesecake batter just until it is all combined.
6. Pour the cheesecake into the prepared pan. Tap the pan gently on the counter to bring any air bubbles to the surface. Let it sit, uncovered in the refrigerator for about 2 hours
7. Once the cheesecake is set, pour the remaining 3/4 cup strawberry topping over it. If the topping has set up in the pot, gently heat it for a minute, just until it is pourable.
8. Place the cheesecake back into the refrigerator and allow to set, uncovered, for another 30 minutes, or until the topping is set. At this point it is ready to serve or you can cover the cheesecake with plastic and it can sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
9. Before unlocking the spring form pan, run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake to loosen it.
10. Decorate it with the fresh strawberries.

The taste actually melts in your mouth. It’s totally healthy, more importantly sugar free and less on calories as well... Go on and try it at once!!

Real Togetherness......

As a tech savvy Mom I am always busy with facebook and twitter. Every day is very long and busy day for me and till late evening I became a dead tired, but whenever possible I try to find out some free time for my friends, we all arrange a get together to make our self distressed. We always have loads of stuff to talk about and yet, I regret our last ‘get-together’ a few days ago. I can’t forget how we wasted the entire party time by busying ourselves with our respective “Smartphones”. Though we all were together physically, but unfortunately we were lost in our so called virtual world. One was playing “Candy Crush” while a few were chatting on FB or whatsapp. 

I still remember couple of year’s back I have to shift to some other city for my job. As a homesick it was tough time for me. But I must admit this Life always teach you a lessons. And the favourite one - you will know the value of something when you are far away from it. That time I miss my home and my love once. 

After 2 years when I came back to my city, my home. I was the happiest person in the entire universe. The feeling of being at home it just so awesome. I call all my friends at home and we decide to have a dinner together, and we all started the preparation. My mom is the best cook in the world and we all help her in the cooking. I am not the best cook but for sure a best help. I cut all the vegetables and also help in making salads. Few of my friends quickly cut the onions and garlic and red and green chillies. My younger sister makes a best Halwa. I had helped her cutting dry fruits and also do table arrangements. We all love the dessert.

We had a lovely time at the dinner table. Some of my friends share their office stories. It was a full fun time for all of us. For me real togetherness does not come through a social media like Facebook, twitter or WhatsApp but rather going true offline and spending some real time with our family and friends.  Let’s salute this real spirit of togetherness and make sure we do not get lost in the world of smartphones  we must get down to the roots and connect to the real person, by feeling and sharing the real emotions in the real world.

This is the exact message also delivered by Kissanpur. They also emphasize on being with your near and dear ones in real and not digital.

For love of life see

Enjoy this wonderful video created by Kissanpur that motivates all of us towards #realtogetherness in life.
