Not the best picture quality, still fills my heart with so much warmth each time I see it. This is Raaya - so full of love for everyone, holding hands of her friends, kissing you where you get hurt, giving you cuddles when you leave, randomly telling you she loves you, not getting sad when you tell her you ran out of blueberries instead saying "mamma get it from the shop later, ok"?, saying "thank you" each time you do something for her, and saying "sorry mamma" when she sees you sad even though she has nothing to do with it, asking her dad if he has taken his wallet, laptop, and keys as he leaves for work each morning, and also checking if he has taken his "medicine" (inhaler) everyday, joining in family cuddles whenever and wherever she gets a chance. . I do not know what I did to deserve this beautiful soul. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž #sappy #raayatales at Paris, France

I showed Raaya this picture, and she came up with the caption - Raaya and mamma together and say cheese. . The caption I thought of - You can't tell there's a travel potty in my bag. ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿšฝ #ohthejoys #raayatales at Paris, France

This is us 4 years ago. Before Raaya happened. When we didn't ever have to think about nap time, bed time, snack time. I decided to share this instead one of the #raayatales because one more time someone tells me I have it easy because Raaya is chilled, I am gonna lose it! . Sure, she is a breeze to be with. But she is also a typical toddler who is a ball of energy. I have to make sure to burn that energy, stimulate her enough, make sure she has eaten well, and above all I have to make sure not to lose my patience with her. EVER. It is wayyy more difficult than you'd like to think. And I am so effing proud of the fact that I have ALWAYS been patient with her. When I want to shout, I rather give her a cuddle. And she gets it now. She gives a cuddle back, and often says "I am sorry". And if you'd like to give the credit to Raaya instead for being chilled. Ain't happening! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ . I love her from every bit of myself but this is what I have done in the last 2.5 years. So next time you want to say to a mum that her kid is chill and she has it easy, instead say such an amazing job she has been doing with that li'l rascal. . To motherhood! ๐Ÿฅ‚

The amount of love this one has for Himanshu is unreal. He was leaving for work in the morning and said goodbye. Next thing you know, she stood up screaming "Papa, wallet.. forgot wallet" ๐Ÿ˜‚ He didn't! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ . Another time she found his hat at home while he was at work. So she cupped her mouth in hands and screamed, "Papa your hat." And then repeatedly mentioned all day long how papa must be cold! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ . If only telepathy worked. ๐Ÿ’ž . #raayatales at Paris, France

A mommy-daughter date today. Raaya and I went to Lafayette today to check out Christmas windows and see Santa (swipe left). Raaya has been loving the Christmas spirit now that she is old enough to notice. Later we decorated our tree. It's so cozy and Christmassy at our place right now. ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ . Someone rightly said festivals are fun only when either you are a child or you have a child. ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿปโค . . . . . . . . #christmas #festive #raayatales #mommyanddaughter #motherhood #moms #indianmom #momblogger #paris #expatsinparis #parislife #citypeople at Galeries Lafayette

On our way back from the nursery Raaya noticed the moon "following" us. Brought back sooo many childhood memories. Then the moon "sneaked" behind a building. "Naughty moon" she said. Then she let out the heartiest laugh ever as the moon was in sight again. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž ๐ŸŒ™ โญ๏ธ . I remember standing in front of my dad's Vespa looking up in the sky and admiring the moon following us. Trying to find it when it hid behind a tree or a building. I can't thank this little human being enough for letting me relive my childhood all over again with her. Even though she is a pain sometimes. But I will keep that for another day. ๐Ÿ˜‚โค . . . . . . . . . . #raayatales #moms #motherhood #life #love #indianmom #momblogger #indianmomblogger #paris #chandigarh #mother #toddler #expat #expatmom #expatlife #expatsinparis at Paris, France

Me - Raaya, you are so pretty! R - Yes. Me - You don't say yes, you say Thank you. R - No. I am pweety (pretty). ๐Ÿ˜‚โค . Talk about confidence. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Jokes apart, I was someone who "believed" you shouldn't really tell your kids they are pretty or gorgeous or beautiful so that it doesn't get to their heads or that they think it's something important. Until I read somewhere that instead tell your kids they are the most gorgeous kids ever so that they believe it in their hearts that they are beautiful and never ever doubt it. In the world of all the insecurities, wouldn't it be so comforting to know that your mother believes you are beautiful. It's something that has stayed with me. โค . . . . . . . #mommying #motherhood #beautiful #toddler #definebeauty #moms #momblogger #blogger #parenting #expatsinparis #paris #france #indianmom #parenthood #averageparent at Paris, France

You guys I don't want to brag but I may have cracked the "brushing teeth without a drama" thing. Yep, it exists. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . So about two weeks ago, I showed Raaya a google image of animated "monsters" in the mouth attacking teeth. You know the ones that they show in the toothpaste/ toothbrush advertisements. Don't want to jinx if but omg it worked!! Like she is a totally different toddler with the toothbrush now. She sits nicely and lets me clean her teeth. And then even shows me her clean teeth and says "mama, look no monsters". โค๐Ÿ˜‚ . . . . . . . . . #momhacks #momwin #toddlerdrama #brushyourteeth #toddlerteeth #moms #motherhood #mothers #momblogger #indianmoms #expatmoms #indianmomblogger #bloggers #paris #france #momcommunity at Paris, France

I showed Raaya one of her Insta stories from this time last year (swipe left), and she asked me make another one. I am soo glad I started making these stories with her since it's so much fun to look back at them. . Raaya loves watching these mini videos of hers. Also can't get ovet how chubby her cheeks were last year ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ Where has my baby gone. ๐Ÿ˜ญ . . . . . . . . #raayatales #expats #expatliving #paris #france #baby #toddler #motherhood #instastory at Paris, France

If I hear one more time anyone say, "oh he loves dinosaurs and cars and truck, such a boy! I am gonna lose my mind." There's no such thing as such a boy or such a girl. . Raaya is OBSESSED with cars, trains, garbage trucks (no jokes!), cranes and dinosaurs as much as any other boy of her age. So much that she had a mini tantrum when a cement mixer crossed the lights and she couldn't see it anymore. . We are about to enter 2019 so I think we can all say aye aye to no more gender stereotypes please! . . . . . #stopgenderstereotypes #raayatales #girlslovedinosaurstoo #andtrucks #expatsinparis #indianmoms #france #moms #motherhood #raisingstronggirls at Paris, France

Thank you so much for all your lovely wishes. I had a nice, chilled birthday with two of my fav people in the whole world. The other side of 30s looks way more fun and content than I ever would have thought. To not giving a hoot anymore. To turning 31. :) . . . . . #birthdays #expatsinparis #france #indianmoms #turning31 at Paris, France
