The little things...

It's the little things that matter. If my boys are taken care of then everything it right in this (my) world. I had never been to India before August 25, 2009. When I found out we were coming here, I heard all sorts of things from all sorts of people--one site said to bring as many diapers as possible, I heard we would have to boil milk, that things would be totally different. Things are different but that's not bad at all. Admittedly, I was concerned for my diaper supply (while waiting for the cloth ones to arrive via the movers). And, we do not have to boil our milk. We are, however, very lucky. We are in a very big city and there is absolutely everything that I could imagine us ever needing/wanting. If I can make my boys happy, especially with good food and favorite snacks we are set. Dorian has his Goldfish, his Cheerios, his dried cranberries and his favorite raisins in the little red boxes (mind you, these are things we could not get where we previously lived). I was in heaven the first time we went to the market to see all the American, British, French, Italian and Indian goods. Of course, I realize that being here means much more than finding what my son likes to eat in the States. But, it does make life easier. So, this is blog is supposed to be mainly about photos, I'm putting up this one. The eggs we buy are very good. I just wonder what "near organic" means. Any ideas?


  1. You should eat them before lunch, but not too early, that way it's "near breakfast."

  2. Love it! Thanks for starting your blog, Caitlin - it's going to be great for all of us so far away, both in distance and culture. :)

  3. Hysterical. I've never even read the egg carton (near organic) ... isn't it funny how all of the warnings you get prior to landing don't really seem to apply?

    We have loads of kraft mac n cheese, because I was told we couldn't get it here (wrong!)
