Random Update #2

~ I don’t think I can call it ‘random-update’. But we are expecting our third child and I am due in September this year. This is huge news and I have written a longer post on my personal blog. We have received a lot of varied reactions from people around, but at this point I am mostly excited though I wish the next 6 months would fly by soon.

~ Along with nausea, I was hit by a strong fatigue by the time I reached back home from work most days. This was much stronger compared to my previous pregnancies and I salute all those mothers who have had kids at 35+ age.

~I went into a reading slumber and I couldn’t get myself to read anything. Finally I re-read The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit and got out of it.

~I have read Vanity Bagh by Anees Salim, The Artist of Disappearance by Anita Desai recently and enjoyed both. But I think it will be while before I write about them here.

~I try to read A Suitable Boy whenever I have some patience to hold on to a heavy book. I will never understand why there is no Kindle version available for that 1300+ page book.

~Amazon Prime Video has been a relief in this last few months. I loved watching a few romantic comedies and some TV series like The Middle and Just Add Magic. Just Add Magic is a kids series by Amazon and it is about cooking and magic. Somehow I enjoyed it more than The Middle.

~I have given up on the Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscription. Somehow the list of books available doesn’t look worthwhile even now. I will wait a 1-2 years and see if I should my decision.

    Hey, congratulations! How did I miss this post. I guess since I was traveling, and then people visiting, somehow I missed. I wasn’t able to comment on your Personal blog, so writing here.
    I have only one child and to everyone who thinks about second and third, I say ‘hats off’! You are right, we have become so attuned to this 2 child policy that anything that is different surprises us. I have one word for you – courageous! I got tired of all the sleepless nights and the efforts involved in taking care of a child that for us, one is enough. But I understand your point of view. May you have an easy pregnancy and a fun time raising all of them.

      I do have think myself to be crazy at times when I see how the 2 kiddos raise a ruckus at home, testing all our patience. But then I have 4 siblings and are quite attached to them and want to provide the same chance for my kids. Then time will tell if that was a wise idea or not :)
