Education 101

Last week was end of Term 2 for the boy and I caught up with his teacher for a quick progress report. She told me (and I quote) – “His memory is amazing and he’s the smartest kid in class. I need to just teach something for two days and he picks it up immediately”.… Continue reading Education 101

Gratitude 101

In just a few hours, I turn a year older and my blog turns a year old! During the last year, I’ve shared some of my most intimate details, worst fears and happiest moments with you. I’m obviously never going to be a popular blogger reaching thousands of followers and honestly I didn’t start this… Continue reading Gratitude 101

Fat to Fit 101

I’ve been thinking about doing this post for a long time but each time I’ve put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard if you’d rather) I’ve seriously felt like a fraud. I’m the last person who should be doling out fitness advice. I’ve always been chubby and have spent over half my life with… Continue reading Fat to Fit 101

The End

I am an absolute mess as I write this. Raw, emotional and vulnerable – that’s me at this very moment. There is no pondering over or changing words or writing in advance. These incoherent ramblings are me stripped bare right to my soul. I officially signed the final legal papers for my divorce yesterday. Just… Continue reading The End

Strong Mothers Strong Sons – Book Review

I absolutely love books. Devour them with a passion. Till a few years back the genres were largely limited to fiction; mainly chick-lit, thrillers, whodunits and the likes. I mean if I didn’t have anything else to read and there was an autobiography lying around I’d definitely pick it up but it wasn’t a preferred… Continue reading Strong Mothers Strong Sons – Book Review

Schoolwork Stories

So Mommy worked on her baby’s first homework project this week. Not sure how many more of these I’m going to be doing in the next decade or so but well the dice has started rolling! 🙂 Hrishaan’s playgroup class is called the ‘Crawling Caterpillars’ and hence a caterpillar soft toy is their class mascot.… Continue reading Schoolwork Stories

Single Parenting 101

I know I know I’ve been missing for way too long. Just been a rough few weeks. Had a horrible scare about a month ago when my son’s nanny behaved extremely irresponsibly – so much so that the local authorities had to be called. She’s obviously gone now but her sudden departure left us in… Continue reading Single Parenting 101

Raising A Boy

After the initial shock of seeing the two blue lines on my pregnancy stick subsided, all I did was say silent prayers to the Chromosome Gods to will my baby to be a girl, “Please don’t be Y. Please don’t be Y.” 😳 (For all you people who skipped biology class in school, XY chromosome… Continue reading Raising A Boy

Baby Superstitions 101

The announcement of a pregnancy and birth of a baby is almost like a festival in most Indian households where both sides of the family join in on the celebrations. 😀 And when I say family I don’t just mean the immediate people you live it. When we desis say the word ‘family’ that generally includes… Continue reading Baby Superstitions 101

Recipes 101

Lets get one thing completely clear at the outset - I am not an experienced cook by any standards. I am a rookie who started cooking barely 3 years ago. Honestly, back then, I had the confidence of an imbecile when it came to cooking. If someone told me to use a teaspoon, I needed to… Continue reading Recipes 101
