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 →


As the kids grow up there are different kinds of learnings/ un- learnings, its a different flavour of joy, a different flavour of agony ... and so on. On the whole the package remains the same me thinks 🙂 And then there is the transition, ever so subtle that you do not notice but when... Continue Reading →

Love of nail art #ABCWednesdays

Ammu has always been fascinated by nail colour. Come weekends or holidays her first request would be to apply nail colour and mehendi !! And boy! she would be the happiest when I gave her the green signal 😀 There was a time a couple of years ago when she'd become so obsessed with nail... Continue Reading →

Growing up!

Its 7 years and 400 posts, since I started on this journey of blogging !! Long time indeed. I had not thought that I would keep this going for so long. But thanks to memes such as ABC Wednesdays, I'm able to infuse some amount of life into it from time to time and keep... Continue Reading →

M is for ..Mamma centric!!

Well.. that's the term coined by dad to describe Ammu 🙂 I've always been amazed by the fact that Ammu is so very devoted to me! It also perplexes and frightens me sometimes..the intensity with which she celebrates me, celebrates her time with me!! Especially fascinating when she declares that she wants to be with...

I'm in a state now where I want to hold this the most... Time and again, when in a state of despair... agitating over something, I often realize that the need of the moment is 'Acceptance'. Acceptance of the situation... Acceptance of the nature of the person(s) involved... Acceptance of my own shortcomings and limitations...... Continue Reading →

Diwali 2014

Diwali, this year, was quite low key.. as far as my energy or enthu to do anything was concerned. For some reason I grew very lethargic!! Lazied most of the time during the 4-5 days. Somehow managed to go out and make the necessary purchases... veggies, flowers, fruits, diyas. BIL had bought the crackers.. the... Continue Reading →

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 →

There’s so much to write!

So.. here I go again! After a somewhat longish break  🙂 The month of June just zipped past.. - Schools reopened. Getting back into the groove was quite a challenge! Especially with Adi. He wants to play as much as he did during the vacation. And since he has company.. friends younger than him who... 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 →

C is for Creativity!

And children!! 🙂 Children and creativity go hand in hand.. is it not 🙂 Most of them are creative in one way or the other!! Here are pics of the cards... notes actually 🙂 , that Ammu hurriedly made on the eve of Teacher's Day.. Pics were taken hurriedly too.. 🙂 I am glad I... Continue Reading →

Tiny Tidbits

Ammu dislikes Winter season to the core.. She hates having to give up the cozy warmth of the bed and the quilts and get up to go to school. Its quite a struggle for me to wake her up these days! I need to summon all my strength and resolve to keep my calm! What... Continue Reading →

Tiny Tidbits!

We are watching an ad that features Kareena Kapoor. I ask sis whether Kareena has converted and taken up her husband's religion. Sis replies that she has not converted but has changed her name to Kareena Kapoor Khan. I nod. Ammu, who's been listening to this conversation, asks innocently 'So, has he also changed his...
