Tiny Tidbits

Ammu has her study holidays going on and is generally around in the morning when I'm getting ready to go to work. Here's a conversation from a couple of days ago, when I was draping the saree and looking for a pin - Me: my mom never wore pins.. she used to wear similar cotton... Continue Reading →

Ammu :)

Like I mentioned yesterday, the blog is my journal especially for jotting down mommy moments and anecdotes for posterity. The kids have now grown up.. and like most parents I had started focussing more on the challenges than the funny, witty and beautiful aspects of their teen phase. Not that I've not been cognizant of... Continue Reading →

This parenting jig is a tough one. We're at a stage.. somewhere in the middle of a transition from the old order into a new one! I believe I'm among a generation of parents who are trying their best to conform to the new norms. Who are among those that listened to their parents and now,... Continue Reading →

Quilling Love

From the drafts. Edited today to add Adi's creation 🙂 The quilling spree continues! This time she was not inspired enough to make ornaments like before.

Art love!

We are a family of art lovers! 🙂 Not serious art aficionados in a strict sense but we love to create/dabble in art. A large part of my childhood vacations were occupied with drawing, painting. I would then randomly showcase my creations on the walls. Mom was always very encouraging and never stopped me from putting... Continue Reading →

Vacation!

The thing that I most missed in the year 2015 is vacation! And, vacation to me, as for most people, is closely linked to travel. Somehow, for most part of the year, I did not go on a trip. Neither a family trip nor a team outing! Except for a quick one to KR Nagar,... Continue Reading →
