Throw a Children’s Day Party for your child this year! Baccho ke saath bacche ban jaayein. Kuch meetha ho jaaye.
“What one loves in childhood stays in the heart forever”
― Mary Jo Putney
It is amazing to me that most things I remember from my childhood make me smile and happy in an instant. I had a wonderful childhood, not because of the things we had but because we did such fun stuff together as a family.
Our elaborate Sunday Brunch, helping my mom cook and setting the table with our best cutlery, dancing to Micheal Jackson’s songs with our dad, our weekly carrom matches at home and sharing a Cadbury bar among the four of us. These are dinnertime topics even today!
At school too, I had a great band of friends that I hung out with. On Teacher’s day we dressed up and imitated our teachers, on our Birthdays, we got a chance to give chocolates to our class and Principal ma’am.
With Children’s Day coming up, I remember celebrating it with my classmates, it was when schools would permit us to ditch our school uniforms and hand us chocolates.
I had even gone dressed as Chacha Nehru once and won a medal for my speech.
Everyone reminisces about their childhood. Those simple times when all was well with the world and nothing could go wrong!
Ain’t no hood like motherhood.
Cut to 25 years later, I’m a mom to an 11-year-old now!
It’s part of our job description as parents to guide our kids through the daily routine. All too often, that means I’m setting limits, denying requests and correcting behavior. That’s why creating positive interactions with our children matters so much!
With our careers and demands of the modern day, some days I forget I was also a child once.
I desperately wanted to change the pace a bit, add some fun to our lives. What better day than Children’s Day to make a fresh start. Right?
This Children’s Day, Kuch Meetha Ho Jayee with Cadbury Dairy Milk
Then I saw this video – Iss Children’s Day, baccho ke saath bacche ban jaayein. Kuch meetha ho jaaye.
As parents though, we have never really celebrated Children’s Day with Miss P at home.So, what’s on our mind you ask? Surprise Miss P with a mini #ChildrensDay Family party once she is back from School.
A Children’s Day Party needs a plan – Here’s ours
- Keep it secret from Miss P. It’s just me and my hubby who know about this party.
- There will be balloons, Streamers, Disco light and Music Karaoke.
- I will be baking a Rainbow Cake and decorate it with Cadbury Gems.
- There will be Pasta, Chips & Musk Melon milkshakes.
- We’ll indulge in some fun family games like Pictionary or even multiple rounds of UNO perhaps.
- There will be lots of Selfies
- And for Dessert – Sharing our Favorite #CadburyDairyMilk #KuchMeethaHoJaaye?
I can’t wait to see the look on Miss P’s face when she comes back from school. The idea is to stop being our usual strict selves and enjoy like a kid with her.
“To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, You have to be in their lives today.”
― Barbara Johnson
Building lasting memories need not be a challenge; it is about seizing the opportunity when it presents itself and creating sweet moments that our children will always remember.
How will YOU be celebrating Children’s day this year?
