Letting go!

Again... from the drafts.. Letting go is damn hard! Perhaps that is the reason why life gives us so many opportunities to learn and adapt to the process of letting go. Each time it is a bitter sweet experience! We want to cling and to let them fly n soar too.. Its a dilemma every... Continue Reading →

The parenting jig!!

This Mother's day I'm in a rather introspective mood. The thoughts are abuzz since a few days.. and I was wondering if I should write about this at all or not. In the early years of motherhood I've been very short tempered, easily venting out my frustrations. This was due to so many things going on... Continue Reading →

Happiness is..

Seeing the beaming faces of the kids when they return from the morning walk! They are tired , exhausted due to the heat and sweat but the excitement shines through!! For the past few years, at the start of the Summer vacations, I would suggest that they wake up as usual and go for the... Continue Reading →

Its the birthday weekend!

Ammu will be 9 this coming weekend !! However, she doesnt seem to be very excited this time since its on a Saturday, as she won't be going to school in a colour dress and distributing chocolates to all her classmates and teachers... But of course everyone else is :)We plan to have her distribute... Continue Reading →

Of change and transitions..

June was a month of transition.. I joined a new workplace in mid of June. It happened quite unexpectedly. As in, I was expecting to be relieved by end of June, but things just fell in place and I was free to leave early 🙂 Wrapping up stuff in the old place and warming up... Continue Reading →

Reading! or is it Thank God! :)

.. for small mercies! or is it small 😉 I meant to do a post on 'reading' as in my/our reading.. choices, patterns etc... but I'll leave you with this instead 🙂 Last night she plonked onto the bed as if she would doze off in a moment. She'd danced, read and danced [practised her... Continue Reading →

Wake up! tales..

... sweet memories to keep forever 🙂  Waking her up in the morning used to be quite a task! It would take all my strength to stay calm and not panic. Especially during the days when D, our house help, had not yet joined us. It still is sometimes... which is another story altogether!! But,... Continue Reading →

Tiny tidbits!

I am wondering whether I should continue to call these posts 'Tiny tidbits'. You were really tiny when I started writing these...now you seem to be all grown up at times. But then again, your words come to mind and make me smile 🙂 You say ' I'm still a baby ma! and you are... Continue Reading →

When wishes come true :)

It takes a child's innocence to really and completely believe that wishes do come true!! On the eve of your birthday,you blew a fallen eyelash and made a wish. You told me that you wished to wake up early on your birthday, that each one of us comes home early on that day and the... Continue Reading →

Revelations! Momentous ones..

These, I think have been possible by my being mindful and present to what was happening... Ammu,when uncomfortable with what we are telling her or when she's not in a state of listening to anyone, just changes the topic or asks us to stop. And, there are times when she just yells.. Sometimes I just... Continue Reading →


Few days ago, Adi was playing by switching the study light on and off. He did not heed my words to not do that... so I threatened to put him in the balcony. Almost dragged him there.. Immediately he said sorry and that he wont do it again. I let him go. He went crying...... Continue Reading →


 A tag after quite a long time... and an interesting one too 🙂 When Momofrs passed on this one to me, I wondered what to write! Much has already been written by the others and I have been nodding my head in agreement at most things. Coz motherhood does make you go through all of that...... Continue Reading →

Joy is ..

When daughter gushes happily after attending first day at school... she's in her favourite teacher's class and her best friend, who was not with her last year, is now in the same section with her 😀 When the little boy of almost 4 is happily eating mango oblivious to what's going on around 😀 'twas...

Will they? Won’t they?

Children doing their share of the chores is something I have always believed in. It is something I can vouch for.. coz it has helped to make me disciplined and self sufficient in the long run. Reading Starrys post brought back a lot of memories... of how we sisters pitched in with the house work. I... Continue Reading →
