Forever love! #DanceLove

Saturdays are all about dance..mostly 🙂 A lot of things have changed over the years but thankfully my love for dance has not diminished. In spite of all the obstacles of health issues and time constraints due to so many other things including lazyiness, I've had the discipline to continue and keep myself on track...

The Parenting Jig! #MondayMusings

Last week I wrote about the struggle with getting the kids to do chores around the house and/or helping us out ocassionally. The other facet of this is quite an interesting one! I've noticed that when kids are indeed willing to do something or sometimes even excited to do a certain thing at home... we... Continue Reading →

The Parenting Jig #MondayMusings

I have often wondered how to go about the task of instilling these in the kids - the habit of doing chores, the feeling of ownership... of taking care of their own stuff and of the stuff and/or valuables at home. But have not come up with any sure shot solution! Pampered as they are,... Continue Reading →

Mindfulness… Acceptance… Kindness

Acceptance and Mindfulness - 2 words , 2 recurring themes that have come up in my readings and writings in the past few years. And then came the theme of Compassion, Kindness. Whatever little I read, blog posts and articles, seemed to point me in the direction of Kindness. Kindness in thoughts, and more importantly,... Continue Reading →

The Parenting Jig…

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 →

Play

From the drafts... As I might have mentioned before, I have not been a physical activities or a sports type person for much of my life. That kind of changed a few years back when I started learning dance. Then came yoga which I learnt/practiced for some amount of time, followed by swimming classes last... Continue Reading →

K is for kisses :)

Yes... tiny tiny sweet ones ! The kids are growing up and there've been lots of changes. they've become more independent in their day-to-day activities and are learning newer things each day. But what remains unchanged through all this are the kisses n hugs! At times... there used to be tiny wars too! On who... Continue Reading →

J is for Jamun :)

Jamun, the fruit has been one of the favorites during our childhood in Belgaum. We knew it as Jambul then, and we would wait eagerly for the cart vendors to arrive with the ripened jambul. These were usually garnished with a bit of salt in order to enhance the taste. And, the fact that it coloured the... Continue Reading →

I scream.. You scream…

We all scream for Ice cream!! 🙂 yayy!! Summer's here with soaring temperatures and so are ice creams and fruit juices to cool us down. Ice cream is much loved by everyone in our family. I'm famously known for gobbling up my share and borrowing from sis always during our childhood days 😀 Dad especially encourages... Continue Reading →

Head vs Heart

Crossroads in life are all about this. Logic, that is, the head says one thing and your heart says another. There's no doubt that we've all gone through such situations. The answer or decision is comparatively easy at times. At other times, its a real tug of war and we struggle to get out of... Continue Reading →

Y is for Yoga.. and Yellow!

I was never the sports/physical activities type person. I preferred reading and arts/crafts. And even though physical activity and exercises are important, I did not actually do much, except for the mandatory sessions at school and later household chores. However, as I approached 40, I felt the need to do something to keep fit and... Continue Reading →

United we stand!

I love to share my thoughts here but when it comes to current hot topics, I mostly refrain from writing about such topics that somehow become controversial and stir up the hornet's nest! The fact being, I realize that I neither have the enthusiasm to defend my stance nor feel the necessity for it. However, in... 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...
