What can be done?

My son is 20 months old. He's a fairly *cough cough* active child and is what I classify as a monkey. Yes, he is a monkey who is up to his nose with antics of all sorts and levels. I might have been a parent for 20 months now, but hey! This is the first time [...]

M.I.A. Momma!

6 months is a bloody long time to be missing in action. That too for a mom who can hardly shut up about things around her. But then, that's where nature kicks in. We have been busy baking baby#2 which seems to be consuming more time and energy than my toddler himself. Ah well! There [...]

I am a cow!

Ha! Before you get into thinking rebellious stuff,  let me tell you that I am just talking about the reference of a breastfeeding mom to a cow. Constantly at work! So, the network that I am a part of has opened my eyes in a gazillion ways.  I would say that it's like a chalta [...]

How calm is too calm?

You know,  there have been days when I have wished for some calm with the monster boy around.  Just a minute's peace and calm. But,  no sooner had I wished for it did I realize that it was the worst thing for a mother of a toddler to ask for.  Lishaan lives up to the [...]

Hey There!

When you are being bombarded by series of advices, 'you know what you should do' and whatnots from aunts, uncles, the cat lady next door & the wheezy cleaner downstairs, the last thing on your mind would be to be the parent with 4 stars on parenting pinned to your chest.
