Family (A-Z Challenge)

This is my family, the three Amigos, the three crazies, the three Musketeers…no wait, that’s my WhatsApp group chat right Pratyusha and Bhavya?

For everyone who doesn’t know me, I am a mom of two awesome boys who test the waters with me in a very fun way when I see them.  For us, family means love, communication, support, and respect.  I am extremely fortunate to have all these values with them, in our family of three.  Sometimes it’s them who support me on those “off days.”  They even like to read my blogs and ask me to do some life coaching with them, how awesome is that?

Family is about having fun and at my place, it’s never a dull moment as you can imagine.  At home it’s about fighting over who gets to take a shower first, teaching them how to cook to impress their girlfriends one day, showing me new vines on YouTube, watching The Big Bang Theory or spending a night in watching movies and eating pizza till we burst.  As their appetite expands so does my grocery bill 🙂

In the car, whoever calls “SHOTGUN!” first sits in the front seat beside me.  I always remind them it’s the hot seat and they need to be in charge of the music as the DJ.  Being DJ is one of their strengths so for them it’s their brotherly competition and for me, it doesn’t matter who sits in front, I know I’ll always have good music coming from someone’s phone hooked up to the AUX cable in my car.  Summer is the most embarrassing time because if I decide to have my windows down, the music is always loud and when songs like Gangsta’s Paradise comes on with heavy bass, let me tell you, I get a lot of stares and smiles because they just have to take one look at who’s sitting next to me and they understand completely.  Doing car karaoke is another story 😛

When we go out for chicken wings on wing night, that’s when it gets competitive.  We order several types of spicy chicken wings and see who can survive the spice and how many we can eat without seeing flames come out of our mouths.  It’s really fun seeing how much pain we endure as we try each kind and I can just imagine years from now as we wash them down with a beer instead of a Coke like we do now 😉

Going on vacation is always fun whether it’s a beach destination where we body surf in the waves all day, get all geared up and do zip lining, have a campfire at night under the stars or go to Disney World in Florida and ride every roller coaster screaming our heads off 😀

All because of them, I’ve learned how to be more grounded, to go with the flow, and the most important lesson of all is how to throw a football…like a guy.  It’s been a few years but I finally got the hang of it and this is one of the beauties of having boys in the family; they are easy to entertain, just grab a ball, go to the park and throw it around for hours.  They taught me how to play football and I taught them how to play tennis.  For now, they still enjoy being around me so I’ll take that as a good sign.

Life is full of adjustments and re-adjustments where you go from normal to finding your new normal.

We are definitely not normal!

I love you guys ❤

 

Much Love ❤

  1. Great post ❤ Family is indeed the best part of everyone's life. Will watch the video in a while & I like the song Gangst's paradise. Its opening music is similar to Curtain falls of Blue. It's one of my favorite songs 😉
