Doesn’t make any sense at all? Well this is such a spelling that even a spell check might not help. So lemme reveal the actual word behind the mangled one- Pterodactyl. Whoo! that’s a doozy isn’t it? Given that it’s not even spelt the way it’s pronounced. Anyhoo MLM’s learning about dinosaurs at school and … More I Know Tedaktal
It took us a little over 2 years to understand that our HYPERACTIVE child might have some help with his hyperactivity. No, it’s not ADHD although I pored over the DSM and ICD in order to find something that would help me understand his relentlessness and lack of sleep. The coughs, colds and persistent sleep … More Did You Know About: Reactive Airway Disease
I say Mini Me because till now NO ONE has said that MLM is anything like Red. I alone see the similarities and point them out which I know makes Red happy. Who doesn’t want to be told that a once-cherubic and now-impish child with beautiful long lashes, a gurgling laughter and the cutest pout … More Out of the Mouth of Mini Me

Even if it came at different times across the world, I firmly believe every damn person with a whit of grey matter WANTED to sleep on Sundays! As kids we slept pretty much as long … More Sunday Morning Shenanigans
I found this site while browsing through app recos on my phone a couple of months back and have been hooked to it ever since. I’m not hooked to the extent that I’m actually buying stuff off it. It’s got a mixture of things that I can afford and stuff I look at wistfully but I … More Things I Fancy
Ermm…that’s a contradiction actually. Nothing does surprise me because a child’s mind is SO elastic that it works in ways I can’t begin to imagine and wish it didn’t. And yet when the unimaginable (for adults) happens it’s also a surprise because the offspring chose to do (read destroy) yet another thing in his own … More Nothing Surprises Me…I’m A Mom!
It’s extremely easy to be firm. Till it isn’t. You decide you won’t let your child indulge in excesses or in things out of turn but somehow it’s always easier to do so when work or personal life coming knocking on your door. Sometimes it’s SO easy to just rationalize it all out and say, … More Being Firm…
