A tear and a Smile

 I would not exchange the sorrows of my heart for the joys of the multitude.And i would not have the tears that sadness makes to flow from my every part turn into laughter .I would that my life remain a tear and a smile.
By Kahlil Gibran
Last year celebrated Advays first birthday in Singapore with Satyanarayan pooja at temple and dinner at Ananda Bhawan,but this year his birthday was different,with relatives around,both my parents and inlaws,there was more joy and fun,24th was his birthday and the same day was his head shaving ceremony better known as Mundan Ceremony which most of u had guessed right when i had showed u guys his pic in my previous post,hubby managed him well,
Advay was in all tears,screaming at the top of his voice,once done we could see his bald head shining :-),
i had prepared Cranberry Muffins to give to my friends on his birthday here goes the recipe
recipe source  my cake book
ingredient needed
115gm all purpose flour
1tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
65gm light brown sugar
1 egg
175ml milk
3tbsp oil
1 cup frozen or thawed cranberries
procedure
preheat the oven to 190 degree C/375 degree F/gas 5,
lightly grease eight deep muffin cups
beat all the ingredient together except the cranberries
stir in the cranberries when the mixture is smooth
spoon in to the muffin cups
bake for 25 minutes or until lightly coloured
leave in the cup for five minutes
then transfer to a rack to cool.
this is how i had packed them in small cane baskets...
Life is not the same now ,with hubby gone to Singapore,its really difficult to manage everything on my own,today for the first time dropped Advay to his school alone,was bit nervous while driving to his school but still managed well,..12:30am will have to go again to pick him up,..so now can understand how difficult it is to manage  home and other chores,Advay is busy in his own colourful world of toys and his playschool,i guess too busy to realize that his father is not there with him,..:-) as per me i am finding it difficult to adjust to this new life,but i guess slowly i will adjust.....and ya frens i have missed reading ur posts i will be catchin with u all soon,...till thn tk cre...;-)

I know how hard it is to manage all the things by your own! Take care Priyanka! Advay looks so cute. I remember my daughter crying that much when she had her head shaved (at 18 months age) :) It's painful for us to watch them crying, isn't it? Take care!
