Honey bee sting


I found a honey bee today flying in the bedroom. I love playing with bee toys from the Bee movie and I picked it up to have a closer look. The little fella was scared and stung me on my thumb! I should have been careful but this is my first experience with bees and I threw him right away and started screaming. Mom came running and saw my state and saw the bee. Dad rushed and found the sting and took it out without squeezing and then started the frantic side of all. Mom panicking, dad rushing with ice to rub on it all this while I was singing out loud (take that as screaming at the top of my voice with tears rolling from my eyes and sending everything berserk).

Finally, mom came up with this idea of rubbing a fresh cut onion juice on the wound and it really helped relieve the pain as it was cold and wet and works as a local anesthetic and ice helped too. Dad didn’t panic (He did. BIG time). I calmed down and slept off after some time. Mom and dad were watching out for any change in breathing pattern,, or swelling or allergies and luckily I didn’t have any. More than anything else, hugs, love, and kisses from mom and dad helped and I am a happy kid as always 🙂

Lesson learnt, next time don’t touch the bee and see from far! If you get stung, remove the sting, wash with water, use ice, onion juice and Calosoft to relieve pain and if you see any allergies, rush to ER.

Xmas tree

My second Christmas. Me, mom, dad, Akanksha Aunty and Nirmala aunty went to church on Christmas and we enjoyed the songs and message.

After church we went to see some nice decoration at UB city and I found santa there.
I saw him only on TV in Jingle bells song but  today when I saw him in person I got scared.
I loved those Christmas tree balls , the huge white xmas tree and a very long and beautiful tree.

We also have visited Gopalan mall and forum mall and had loads of fun watching people and decoration and doing shopping. and eating.

I loved the big presents there but they didn’t let me take them 😦 Mum said she will buy me something nice later. I will get them next year!


Water play



I love playing with water just like all the children 🙂 I have so many toys but when I get exhausted with them, I go to mom and give a naughty smile and ask for the water play.

Mom brings out all the different shapes and sizes of utensils, cups, plates and gives them to me to play. Once I am tired playing, it is time for bath in hot water so I don’t catch cold and then it is time for some hot milk.

Sometimes mom and dad join in the play and we make bubbles, boats and so on. Do you like playing with water?



We believe in a simple principle. We meaning mum, dad and us as a family. Support local businesses and never bargain with people who work hard. Dad and mum both keep buying stuff we get locally including toys which is a big plus for me.

When returning from church, dad found this guy selling umbrellas and picked one for me and Jessie akka. There were two umbrellas he got – Green and Red. As Jessie akka was our guest, she got to pick the color she wanted first and she picked Green. I got red and am happy about it. May be I will learn to fight next time but mum and dad try to teach me that we should always share and make others comfortable. So here I am with the red umbrella hiding from mum who wants to feed me. As I am small enough to hide under this, she cannot see me. Don’t tell her I am here 🙂

Ps: Small moments like these are when you get a chance to teach life lessons to children and though they may be momentarily unhappy about your decision, they will learn a lifetime lessons in values that you would need to teach them later in life. This lesson would not be just for your child but for other child too. Do you have an instance where you have used to pass on a lesson to your children? Share with me!




Tataiah means grandfather in telugu. I love my grandfather and he loves me more. I am blessed to have two grandparents who are quite diverse from the other. For my paternal grandfather, I am the first grandchild and dad being the only son they had I am the first girl child in the family and they love me for that.


When he saw me for the first time had to wipe his tears constantly for the joy of seeing me 🙂 I smiled and kicked on in joy and he loved me doing that. He keeps bringing me gifts, snacks that nanamma  makes and keeps visiting me often. He travels a lot for his job and at each possible time he makes sure to drop in. When he is here he takes me to the mall, gets me whatever I want and spends quality time with me. Dad gets jealous sometimes about this 🙂

He had told dad that he would get nothing from the inheritance and has to tend for his own and I would get all the  savings, gold and stuff they save! Being a girl child, I am very happy that things are changing in here and hope there are more grandparents and parents who would think in these lines.

Love you Tataiah.

Scary Santa

I met Santa this year for the first time. I was scared to see him. He is not the same Santa I know.
The Santa I see in jingle bells is different. My Santa is cuddly, calm, smiling and has lots of chocolates and presents. This santa had cotton for his hair and beard. THough he tried to be nice when dad got on to the chariot with him and me, I didn’t like him. I cried looking at him.
Mom and Dad tried their best to make me friends with him but I did not like him. I like my santa in rhymes and cartoons better.

Dad says I will understand when I grow up and said it is okay if I didn’t want to get close to Santa 🙂 I get my gifts from my rhymes santa anyways and this santa here at the mall is just a friend of my santa. We had a nice lunch and came back home.

Tell me about your visit to the Santa? Tell him I miss him!

Rain rain don’t go away!


I love rains. I love the drop go plop plop plop, pit pot, tip tap, plop again. We as a family love the rains. Mom enjoys her tea in the rain, I love getting wet, running around, playing with rain drops, dad loves being with us ensuring I get hot water bath later and try to get me inhale some steam and so on. We even have redone the rain rain rhyme. Want to see what that is?

Rain rain don’t go away
Come again everyday
Little Tigress wants to play!

So whenever it rains, we run tot he balconies, windows and watch the beautiful nature unfold its power and water pour down from the skies over everything, drenching them, cleansing them and refreshing them. I love rainbows too. We go chasing them when we see them. Do you know there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and lots of presents too?

What do you like to do in rains? I love ice cream, hot fries and the music of nature. Mom says if I go out get drenched in rain and get sick or catch cold, it is good because I am building up resistance and my body will adjust to the weather easily. Dad says just go have fun and come back. He has to carry me on his shoulder all night when I fall sick 🙂

Do you let your children have fun in the rain? Let me know.


Quiet time for kids

Do you know the importance of having time for myself? Yes I need quiet time too. Time when I don’t play, don’t run around or indulge in activities that you all want us to do. Time when I take to be with myself and do what I love. I usually take some time to relax when i wake up and wait for dad to whip up my milk and cream. I also have a quiet time when I choose to read from my books collection.
the little tigress quiet time
This is important because we all need time to process what we have gone through all through the day and need time to store what is important and what is not and this quiet time is need to reflect on that. When adults need time to think and relax, we kids need it too. Parents like you should encourage quiet time off all gadgets and distractions and let us use some time to think, to learn, to just relax. Life is tough already and taking a bit of time for myself actually helps me unwind. What do you think?




Now how do I tell about her? She was the single most important person in my dad’s life and he was for her till I came in to this world. Now I am the single most important person for both of them. Dad named me after her and calls me dearly addressing her name. She loves me so much and sends me dishes that I love and makes special peanut powder for me. Her fish curry is legendary and is the best fish curry in the world. When she comes to meet me she brings me toys, dresses, gifts, lot many kisses and loads of love.

Nanamma is my dearest paternal grand mother and loves me more than my dad and mom put together. SHe prays for me and ensures I am protected and worries about me all the time. I am the first girl child in her close relations and because dad is so close to her she loves me even more. She calls me Chinnitalli and chats with me on phone all the time. I tell her so many things which she understands and she can chide dad if he doesn’t listen to me 🙂 It’s like she is dad’s super boss!

Nanamma the little tigress

Last week when she was here she took me out for lunch and we went in a train to play and she got me so many stars, fryums, ice cream and juice. She listed to all my stories, took me for a walk and spent so much time with me. When she was leaving she prayed for me to be healthy, wealthy and useful for the Lord. I will be so some day. Thank you nanamma. You are the best and I love you sooooo much.
