Importance of a routine

Eid Mubarak, my dear readers! The past week was one of the best "friends" week ever in the history of fun with friends for me. Shekar was in India visiting his parents (He is back now). So, made the best use of that time with my "close" friends. The quotation for the word close is on purpose. Just realised that there is a fine line in every relationship that cannot be crossed. Anyway, I always had a dream of trying some "wild" things in life. I think the sleepover with the girls made this dream come true. Not going to spell it out for all of you. I am sure you all are smart enough to figure it out.  I know there is an appropriate time and age for everything. All I can say is better late than never. My friend was here from Sat-Wed. We slept for only 2 hrs per night on all those days. By the time she left, I was so deprived of sleep, that my boring routine seemed so inviting.
Ok, while India is celebrating Eid, Salman Kahn is celebrating the success of his Ek Tha Tiger all the way to the bank. Really people? One can get fooled twice, thrice but after that it HAS to be Sallu Bhai. I am convinced now, Salman Khan = God for the masses. He can remove his shirt, flex his muscles and audience goes fida. On the other hand, Ash , is also comfortably socializing these days. Saw pictures of her at the book launch of 'India Fantastique'. Ye chaddar pehen ke aagayi auntyji. My eyes hurt. Hope Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla paid her to wear that piece of garbage! It looked like fruits and vegetables in fluorescent colors. So different from Kalyan jwellers ad, this proves one thing everything in Bollywood is photo shopped. Decide for yourself.
Alright folks, today's Song of the day is MashAllah, MashAlla from the movie 'Ek Tha Tiger'. This middle eastern tune was sung by Wajid Khan and Yes, Shreya Ghoshal, once again proving that she is a versatile singer.

Routine is important for both parent and child. It can help establish good habits, healthy living, and, which sometimes can seem like the most important thing.  As adults, we have the advantage of controlling many aspects of our lives. Often we are able to arrange things (work schedules, child care, friendships, appointments, etc.) to enhance convenience and reduce hassle, making life just a little bit easier and probably a bit more enjoyable.  How would you feel if you had no idea what to expect in your day?  What if you didn’t know why you were leaving the house, where someone was driving you, when you were going to eat next, where you could go to use the bathroom, or when you were going to get back home again? Routines and schedules help kids make sense of their day--morning, noon, and night--and know what to expect. This reduces anxiety and apprehension, and allows for more time for kids to enjoy and learn from their surroundings instead of stressing out about them. Chaos doesn’t need to rule the roost and routines don’t have to be bland to make daily life. Once in a way, a break in routine is enjoyable, a little healthy too. But getting back on track quickly helps lead a less confused life. The past few days confirmed this for me.
