When a 5 year old made me realise all that we talk about equality is futile …

My daughter is 3.5 years old now and has quite a strong opinion on several things. Earlier she would happily bade me goodbye when I leave for work but nowadays she frowns and says “Mumma don’t go to office”. We would usually tell her that Mumma needs to go to office as we need money… Continue reading When a 5 year old made me realise all that we talk about equality is futile …

Nysa is 28 and its her wedding day today. The house is in utter mayhem as we run around making sure everything thats needed is there and we haven’t missed anything.

Treading a rocky path #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

I used to be at my wits end when Nysa was a baby. My days were filled with milk bottles, baby poop, laundry, baby food and vaccinations.

She kicked her way into this world with aplomb. A 13 hour labour which left me exhausted for the first 2 hours and then came a saviour called “Epidural”. The delivery process was then a cakewalk, literally. I lay in my bed comfortably, laughing and chatting, a part of my eager to catch the first… Continue reading Parenting Woes #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

Oh My God #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

We were very clear about the division of responsibilities right from day one. He pays the… Continue reading Oh My God #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

Growing up #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

I got my first period when I was 11. It wasn’t a shock to me as I knew about periods when I was 4. One day  I saw Mumma take out a pad from the cupboard and walk towards the bathroom. “What is that?” A curious 4 year old asked. Grandma was sitting nearby.

A birthday with a difference #FridayFotoFiction

The half filled jar of blue lemonade stood by the window. I took a sip and closed my eyes. When was the last time I had felt so calm? Feels like ages ago. A mum never rests, does she? When the kids were born, I thought I will get some rest once they grow older… Continue reading A birthday with a difference #FridayFotoFiction

When I was carrying my child,… Continue reading Baby on board- here is what you need to know about your baby’s food and development
