A Mediocre Mind with Mediocre Thoughts

And she does not crave for fancy dresses,
Nor for the outdoor trips on Maldives.
Visa and credit cards she never fancy in her wallet,
‘coz to her, money lies in familial bliss-
The intricate, woven, familial bliss.
And adventure in togetherness,
Not separated by ‘my personal boundaries’.

And she doesn’t welcome the ‘space and freedom’,
That widens, widens and widens…
…and drifts away the emotional streaks.
And while people start enjoying that space,
They forget that it has become a Frankenstein’s Monster.

And she did not crave for a fantastic career,
Nor even that gives her a chance overseas,
Such bonus and promotions are bane and folly, she opines-
When a husband sleeps away from her wife,
And a daughter plays with her Barbie doll alone,
And a son rides his cycle without his dad’s help.

And she doesn’t enjoy drinking at parties,
Neither neat, nor bottle nor pint.
The love, closeness and expressions–
That’s what she likes to drink.

No wonder, people call her a mediocre!
She is a mediocre girl, with mediocre thoughts.

5 Interesting Ways Marriage Changes After Baby

Red roses turn to Yellow poops, candle-light dinners change to cold lunch and late night movies give way to late night crankiness. This honest list shares 5 changes that a couple experience after they become parents. A warning for couples thinking to be parents, throwback for parents who have (un-graciously) crossed through this phase and an encouraging pat-on-the-back for recent parents:

1.No time for Partner – When you bring a baby into a relationship, you are bringing a lot more than tiny toes and soft wobbly hands. You are going on a 24*7 job that, in all probabilities, would leave you with little to no time for your partner. Sex, particularly, takes a nosedive. Off course, you both love each other still, but who has got the time to confess?
2.No Time for Sleep – There’s no such term as ‘sound-sleep’ in young parents’ dictionary. Heck, you can’t even guarantee an hour of uninterrupted sleep because it’s the baby who decides when and how much you sleep. Mostly, parents juggle betwee…
