in pictures. last day before summer break.

Kabir’s school found a wonderful way to teach the kids about the different states of India. And how everyone is equal, even though they have different names, languages and appearance. A lovely song talking about different people from different states. So Kabir was Benjamin from Panjim, spoke Konakani….but he’s just like you! It was adorable watching all the kids dressed up in different costumes of India and singing their bits. 

To dress as a Goan, I put Kabir in a tank from H&M, checkered shorts also from H&M and a palm print shirt from Zara kids. And he had his sun glasses, straw hat and guitar to complete the look. Cutest looking Goan boy you’ll see around πŸ˜‰

Wonderful show by all the kids, followed by a lil snack party. And it’s time to say hello summer break!β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ

in pictures. day out in Delhi.

Sitting in my hotel room in Stockholm after work, I’m browsing through my camera roll and I start reminiscing over this wonderful day in Delhi a few weeks back! 

Starting with a movie together with the entire family. Well almost…missed you on this trip to Delhi, so much Ginni! First time for Kabir for a Bollywood movie too- Kapoor & Sons. Even though it was a lil depressing. Was a great movie about a dysfunctional Indian family, sibling rivalry and love. The society norms and how they affect us. Definitely a must watch! 

Followed by a trip to Dilli Haat! One of my favorite places in Delhi, specially when the weather Gods are kind. It’s not a place to hang out when it’s a scorching 42 degrees and plus outside! Crafts and knick-knacks from different states of India to buy and browse through. And then the yummy food from all over India. You are literally spoilt for choice! 

Moving on from more handicraft sort of shopping to something more high street! Our next stop was H&MπŸ˜„πŸ€˜πŸ» 

And here we gotto see a new side to Kabir. He’s usually not so thrilled about shopping …unless ofcourse we are in a toy store!! But this time round he was all into it…”Mamma, this looks good…and I think I need that too.” Picking up pieces and creating outfits…”See..this looks good together!” And me and Sapan were left staring at each other! What just happened here?!πŸ˜‚ To his credit, he did do a good job of making his ensembles!

in pictures. the lil traveller and his red suitcase.

Kabir and his red Disney suitcase have been on many adventures together already. But this was the first trip on which he truly owned his suitcase…dragging it across the airport, though the airplane aisle….πŸ˜„ I’ve been travelling alone with him since he was 3 months old. Mostly to Delhi and back…and as he’s growing older, air travel with him is getting to be more fun and a lot easier too! πŸ™ˆ

We talk, eat our meals together, he naps a bit, pretend plays with whichever lil toy he’s chosen for the day. And we are there…easy peasy…well almost!

 Other than minor hiccups like when we are running late and he decides he’s in no rush at all to get anywhere. And I realise that our boarding gate is a good 10-15 minute walk away. I grab a trolley, dump him inside, push my stroller below, hang his and make him hold my hand bag and then push!!! Finally I see the gate in sight, rush and get him off and he announces…”Mamma you are such a slow coach!!!” Sweating and tired…I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry…πŸ˜‚

Thank you Ginni Maasi, once again for this lovely gift. Here’s to many more adventures together…with the  red suitcase. 😊✈️

The highlight of the weekend, a day spent at the new mall in town- VR Bengaluru in Whitefield.

Being a kid again with Kabir, accompanying him on swings where he was not tall enough yet to go alone. Having a nice family lunch and then shopping at H&M. Finally!! To be able to shop at the store right here in our very own Bangalore! ☺️

Followed by browsing through the stalls at the Farmer’s market, picking up some amazing locally grown and packaged goodies. Cheese, pickled tomatoes, honey and more.

Finally ending the day with a lovely evening at a friends place (right here in our very own Raintree πŸ˜„πŸ€˜πŸ»)celebrating our tiny but vivacious Emma’s second birthday!

in pictures. in blue and white.

From quietly wearing whatever I picked out for him, to making a big fuss about wearing a shirt to picking his own outfits!! My baby is growing…and in style! 🀘🏻

For a hot summer afternoon in Delhi, out for lunch to Andhra Bhawan, he wore almost a complete H&M outfit. Even though we finally didn’t end up eating there cos of an overwhelmingly large crowd( a lot of food lovers in Delhi!) The photo op against the white wall sort of made up for an otherwise wasted trip! πŸ™ˆ
