🎥 MOVIE BUFF 🎥

After decades, rather the first time, the girls decided to sleep early. And when I say early, I mean 10.45 PM. (that's a record time) and they slept through the night. *Phewww..
.
These occasions are rare so after some Netflix and chill, @beingbaap and myself usually catch up with some good old cinema. More like Carrie Bradshaw and Big, we cuddle up and stare at the silly laptop keeping the volumes loud enough for the dialogues to be heard and low enough so that the girls don't wake up. Truly speaking, we love movies and prior to the girls would have crazy movie marathons and watch movies till dawn. Fast forward today, we rarely watch movies but the ones we watch are some classics we've missed on a new movie that has been released.
.
The other day, I was having a chat with a fellow mommy Blogger who told me that she rarely watches movie and had no clue who Iron man was. Making me wonder should I do some movie recommendations as well? These will be under the #GenMovieBuff. Let me know what do you guys think about this?

🐾 Too Many Doctor Visits 🐾
.
And we have started role play. The latest being doctor doctor where T has a stethoscope (yes she can pronounce it) and K is the patient (she has no option). I just don't have an Instagram worthy picture but guess this works. Out here, Doctor Twisha is administering medicines to Little K because 'Keesha got boo-boo on her legs'. We have pink medicine, white medicine, and an injection for the boo boo.

TIME PLEASE STAY STILL.

😒 Bhaag Macchar Bhaag 😒

We're still battling HFM and trust me, it's a struggle. Being home jailed was irritating not just for the girls but for me as well. Now that we've started stepping out for tiny trips, we had to take necessary precautions against mosquitoes. In came @mamaearth.in with their army of products to keep mosquitoes away. Honestly speaking, I have tried a herbal mosquito repellent patch and the new Mamaearth patch became an instant comparison point to it. What's my verdict, do read under. 👶 Both offered the same mosquito protection. It lasted equally long (approximately 6/7 hours). I change the patch after that either case.
👶 When it came to the evening time, the current patch refuses to keep mosquitoes away. With Mamaearth patch, it worked to a certain extent. T stepped out in her shorts and t-shirts when we used the combination of the fabric roll on and the patch. Trust me, I saw mosquitoes run away.
👶 When it comes to odor, the patch does have a strong which fades away with time. Citronella which is a crucial component for all mosquito repellents. This does have a mild odor but that's perfectly ok.
👶 What makes it super duper awesome is the packaging. It's got this suction lock pouch that maintains the power of the product. Which is not there in my current patch.
👶 Another super duper point is the fact it's gum does not stain the clothes. I have lots of issues with the current one and HATE the sticky gum that's left behind. This one is different. The patch can be easily put and removed with absolutely no issues.
👶 Cost wise, it's the same as my current patch. So no hole in the wallet.
.
In a nutshell, the patch did a decent job. I am not so comfortable with application of mosquito repellents directly on the baby's skin like else they have a roll on and a cream which I have heard works perfectly fine.

👒 The Original BFF 👒
Entrepreneur, IT expert, Doctor, Architect, Content writer, Confectionery Expert, Marketeer. Who knew back then we were going to diverse in such fields.
.
These are my girls. My Clan. We've known each other for over a decade and trust me we still hang around like a bunch of 14 year olds. From fights to making silly rhymes for school functions to pouring petals while walking down the aisle to being there when kids are born.

Thank you girls for being there for me.

✨ Breast Fed, Expressed and Fed, Formula Fed- A journey ✨

I won't kid you. If I were to pen this down last year, I would have gone all gaga about how 'Breast was Best'. Keisha changed my perspective.

They say you learn a lot from your kids & experience. And trust me I learnt a might lot from them both. No two kids are the same & similarly for me both came in with a predecided feeding pattern.

With Twisha
Have I weaned her off yet? Not really. And I don't intend to do that soon. BF T wasn't easy either. It felt like a vampires kiss every time she nursed as a new born. The sorness, red bumps & yes the engorgement was a bonanza that came along. I proudly nursed her through my pregnancy and was pretty damn sure that Junior was gonna be Breastfed too. But was that my fate. Nah.

With Keisha
From the very beginning Keisha was a different cut. She had a tongue tie just like me & T and feeding her was a task. To top it all, I had an excess flow which to a certain extent chocked her (yes, this too is a reality). On day 3 in the hospital, K has a huge drop in her weight & cried continously. The only way she slept was when she was being carried. She refused the breast completely, leave alone the latch. I remember texting @mycocktail_life frantically from the hospital bed as I felt absolutely helpless. Eventually after almost 10 hours of no feed, I was told to pump milk & feed with the bottle. She refused that too. Around 3ish in the night, K had a gauge piece shoved in her throat & the doctors fed her with the syringe. Imagine my plight as I saw this nightmare right in front of me. From there on my perspective changed as I embraced the bottle & the pump with dignity. Nursing T and pumping for K is sure taking a toll on me as my bones ache. Towards the 5th month PP I was advised by the doctor to wean off T and start formula feeding K. I am slowly embracing that with dignity as well.

If you're still with me here's what I have to say.
Are my kids Breastfeed. Yes they are.
Is my daughter Bottle Fed. Yes she is.
Is my daughter Formula Fed. Hell yes she is.
So here's a title I'll settle down.

THEY ARE WELL FED BABIES.

🌱 Second Time Mom Guilt 🌱

I did undergo a whole deal of depression after giving birth to K. I was depressed not because I missed my pregnant self but because I was guilty. Guilty of the fact that Keisha didn't enjoy the privileges that Twisha did as a newborn.

13th Jan, 2018
It was 4 in the morning when I has my mucus unplug. I was extremely worried about Twisha because she was never away from me. Not even for a few hours. She and I were extremely attached to each other and we had to be around each other. When we got to know about Junior, the first thing we were warned about was T feeling neglected. Left out. That thought engulfed us so much that we honestly cared about her more that me or Junior. When K was born, Sneh promised me that he would take care of T so that I could concentrate on K. But my mind never allowed me to do so, as well, 'T will feel neglected.' Slowly Mommy Guilt creeped in as I realized I paid more attention to Twisha than Keisha.
.
* Guilt 1
BF Twisha came in naturally to me but with Keisha, it was a struggle. It was day 3 in the hospital and K refused to feed the entire day. Eventually, the doctor had to shove a gauge piece into her throat and feed 60 ml of expressed BM with a syringe. That night I changed my notion. It was better to be Fed than to be Breastfed. Both @beingbaap and I saw a nightmare in reality. Trust me, it's the most painful sight I wish a parent would ever see.
.
*Guilt 2
Not getting enough time with K. Even while we decided to divide and rule, I seldom had time for K. More than half the time, I kept pumping and the rest with Twisha. I cried every night as I held K tight. I was engulfed with fear and kept blaming myself for this misery. It's difficult to fight this.
.
*Guilt 3
Speaking of which, divided attention. Unlike Keisha, Twisha enjoyed undivided attention and extra precautions which Keisha doesn't. Her food was introduced slowly. I was more careful. Infact I was in charge. This time it's quite the opposite. This does make me sad. It's like a sour pill going down my throat.

This list could go on and on had I have written this post a while ago but hey I have moved on and embraced myself.

🗝️ The Truth 🗝️
.
Here's me keeping it real. Life is simple it is us who complicate it.

I come from a middle class family and I don't have a fancy lifestyle. I live with my husband, girls and in-laws in a tiny little home. With two girls and tons of financial pressure, it's difficult to lead an easy life. My journey on Instagram started a year ago and like most mum's I started to pen down this journey called 'Motherhood'. I wont deny, in order to make ends meet, I got into collaborations and it gave me a kick. Like a fellow blogger mentioned, 'Youre either here to influence or to earn' and she wasn't wrong. With time, responsibilities increased. Priorities changed and my life started revolving around the social media bubble. Instead of living the moment, I was constantly worried and was wanting pictures to be Insta Perfect. The world saw the life I portrayed which was faaaaar away from reality. I was constantly on my cell phone, capturing Instagram perfect moments. The drawback, the girls suffered. Mr. Hubster complained as I checked my phone more often than him. The turning point was when Twisha went, ' No Mimmee. No phone.' Giving me a dirty look. That's when i decided to take a step back and support Mum's who are here to blog.

Am I quitting a 'Bloggers Life'? Not really. For those wondering where did I disappear. I am right here, juggling between work and girls and life. It's difficult being a Mom to two girls and getting back to work. The pressure is enormous but it keeps you mentally charged up. Have I made a sucessful move to WORKING MOM title? Not really, I do cry daily as I bid goodbye to the girls with the promise of coming home early. Honestly, it's a huge transition with us and yes, it is depressing. Still figuring out ways to cope with it. Working Mums, please help me out here.

Hugs,
Gen

⚪Gender Neutral Parenting⚪ .
Yesterday, Twisha walked up to me and asked me, 'Mimmee, Twisha wants princess diaper.' I was taken a back. We never called our girls a princess nor did we treat them like one. We always called them brave and smart and awesome. And always treated them like one. In all honesty, @beingbaap and I kept those terms away to make them believe that they can be what they want to be. We don't understand Gender Neutrality. These to us are mere jargons. If we had no internet, we would have walked the path our forefathers did and imposed a pre-set notion on the girls. But, we're millennials and we believe in being equal.

However, with that being said, we still live in a society and that's not open to this. How exactly to combat? I really don't know. While I tell my girls that they are the same as boys, the society won't. They would impose the pinks and blues. The kitchen set and cricket set. The muscles and the looks on them. And yes, I do know this. Do I have a solution to this, not really. I live in a time where my parents are old, and I can't really change what's was hammered in their head for years together. I can call my daughter brave and smart but can't control what the lady in the bus calls her. All I can do is empower them with knowledge and make them feel that they are at par with boys. They say, 'Practice before you preach' and that's what we do. There are times that @beingbaap cooks and I fix the things at  home. We exchange the pre defined roles and do what the society expects the other sex to do. This is how we do in our little bit in raising Gender Neutral babies.

Just when I was in the middle of potty training Twisha, we got to know about Keisha. I didn’t give up and she was potty trained by 18 months. This was a mistake. A HUGE MISTAKE. Post Keisha’s birth, Twisha’s potty training took a U-turn and she was back in diapers. Now with two kids in diapers, it was difficult. And more than difficult, it got expensive. Spending 15 bucks per diaper was huge. That meant Rs. 3o for a single diaper change. That into approximately 4/5 diaper change per day meant 150 bucks per day… Was I ready for an empty wallet? Of course not!! Both Sneh and I made a conscious switch to cloth diapers. And tried to live it as much as possible. We have started following the 80/20 ratio of Cloth diaper vs Disposables this monsoon. What are the perks of cloth diapering Two kids under two and how do I manage? Read the link in the bio to know more.
.
Psst.. This blog post is a part of ‘Conscious Diapering and Sustainable Living’. A blog train sponsored by @bumberrydiapers hosted by Me & @notjustmommying. Here 18 Supermoms have joined hands to share their perspective on cloth diapering and living an eco-friendly sustainable lifestyle. Thanks and a huge hug to @perzenpatel, her hacks to help family embrace Cloth diapering is so relatable. Also, do check out @babyandbeyondin blog and see 18 things you will be able to understand and relate to as a cloth diapering mum.

Just when I was in the middle of potty training Twisha, we got to know about Keisha. I didn’t give up and she was potty trained by 18 months. This was a mistake. A HUGE MISTAKE. Post Keisha’s birth, Twisha’s potty training took a U-turn and she was back in diapers. Now with two kids in diapers, it was difficult. And more than difficult, it got expensive. Spending 15 bucks per diaper was huge. That meant Rs. 3o for a single diaper change. That into approximately 4/5 diaper change per day meant 150 bucks per day… Was I ready for an empty wallet? Of course not!! Both Sneh and I made a conscious switch to cloth diapers. And tried to live it as much as possible. We have started following the 80/20 ratio of Cloth diaper vs Disposables this monsoon. What are the perks of cloth diapering Two kids under two and how do I manage? Read the link in the bio to know more. . Psst.. This blog post is a part of ‘Conscious Diapering and Sustainable Living’. A blog train sponsored by @bumberrydiapers  hosted by Me & @notjustmommying. Here 18 Supermoms have joined hands to share their perspective on cloth diapering and living an eco-friendly sustainable lifestyle. Thanks and a huge hug to @perzenpatel , her hacks to help family embrace Cloth diapering is so relatable. Also, do check out @babyandbeyondin  blog and see 18 things you will be able to understand and relate to as a cloth diapering mum. . . . . . . . . . #TwoUnderTwo #mommydiary #momsofindia #dreammbiggerr #motherhoodsimplified #mumstyle  #stylegram  #toddlerstyle #momsofinstagram  #blogger #momblogger  #candidchildhood #thelifestylecollective   #mommylife  #BeingMommie  #picoftheday #MommyDiary  #Beautiful  #Love #HonestReview  #clothdiaper  #ecofriendly #clothdiapermom  #clothdiaperbaby  #clothdiaperbum #Dontbeafraidjustbeu - 29 days ago

**Long Post Alert. Don't worry, not a rant**

 2️⃣ Two Under Two 2️⃣

 FAQ: How do you manage to save time with two girls & blogs?
.
This one is definitely a question that I am bombarded with on and offline. Being a mum of two kids under the age of two is definitely overwhelming. Time flies like a blink of an eye and it took me almost 6 months to figure some me time for myself. Finding time for myself is a struggle. By learning to save time throughout the day, I have figured quality time to spend with my girls and myself.  Trust me that's difficult. So how exactly do I do it. Here are few things I try and do to save time.
.
⏳Plan Ahead of time
Even if it means staying up late in the night or waking up early. With Twisha joining school and Keisha's meal, I try and wake up earlier to get it all sorted.  This keeps me in control. If there is an event in the evening, I offer a choice of 2 garments for Twisha so as to avoid the, 'I don't want to wear this.' tantrum.
.
⏳Mombo Combo
This one is a huge perk. A meal should not take more than 20 minutes. I try and feed them food together. Bath time is combined. Saving a hell lot of time for me and keeping them entertained. Activities for the day is done keeping both of them in mind and yes it is spontaneous. This also means putting them to sleep together. Speaking of which, scheduling is the next time saver.
.
⏳Scheduling the girls
We hate unpredictability and the same applies to the girls. Though I haven't mastered the art I am slowly getting there. I have tried and put a timetable on their everyday. Matching their sleep and food time. This not only saves times but also avoids a lot of crankiness and tantrums.
.
⏳Getting the Girls involved
Folding clothes. Setting up the table. Putting toys back in place. Helping in Keisha Activites. I get Twisha involved in it all. I know she's just two but this has disciplined her to a certain extent. Getting her involved not just keeps her busy but also gives me a helping hand.

2️⃣ Two Under Two 2️⃣
.
I swear, being a mom to a hyperactive kid and an infant is insane. There are days when you feel, 'Awww so blessed to have these girls in my life' to 'Mayday mayday.. run for your life!!!!!'
.
The month of July has some kickass new features for me.
1. I complete 6 months of #TwoUnderTwo (many more to go)
2. I have started working from home. (I literally cried at this)
3. I'm making a shift on my Instagram profile.
.
Looking back at my profile, I didnt really see a niche. I spoke about parenting, dad's, product recommendations and everything under the sun. Taking a step back, I have decided to dedicate a month to a new topic. This month is all about #TwoUnderTwo.
.
So here I am @life.of.gen presenting this months theme : TWO UNDER TWO. Do DM me if there's anything specific you want me to talk about. Will try and write it up..

📆 INSTA CHANGE 📆
.
I'm honestly running out of ideas or topics to talk about. Either there are tons of people talking about it or it's a collaboration. Which frankly speaking is unfair to readers. Eventually it's more or less the same food put on the plate designed and presented differently. Rather than scratching my head on what to write about next, I thought maybe lets just pick a month and have thematic posts for the entire month. Similar to an ad campaign. So here's me, turning on a new leaf. Dedicating a month to a new theme and presenting my version on the same.
.
Any guesses what's the Theme for this month? Hint: Twisha turned 2 on 28th June and Keisha is turning 6 months on 13th July. And not, it's not organizing a party (which honestly is a good idea)

😍 There is no place like the seat I had when this happened 😍
.
I am still a Work in Progress Mom but they know their purpose in life already. Just today, Keisha (will be turning 6 months soon) decided to pull Twisha's cheeks. Ah! The joy on Twisha's face as she sang chubby cheeks out loud.

Just as expected, they have a secret language they speak. A bond that can't be captured in words. It's truly fun to see them play and cuddle. Yes, there have been incidents where Twisha has literally smacked Keisha hard and all that K did was smile. It's truly a blessing to see them grow together and watch each day like some sitcom series. They have changed my life. For good of course. Yet, there are times it gets super difficult and I've wanted to run away from being a MOM. Times when I feel inadequate, shit scared and yes incapable of being who I am. At those times, their smile and love pulls me back and gives me strength to face reality. Reminding me that I'm just a Work in Progress Mom.
