How To Talk So Kids Will Listen

This is going into the category of a bloglet viz it'll be brief. There's a book my husband bought me once the brat started pre-primary...it's called How To Talk So Kids Will Listen And Listen So Kids Will Talk. Since the book did not mention anything about how to talk so husbands will listen and stop leaving…

Oh Snap!

The brat has his little friends. They can be quite a handful from time to time. One of them came over a little while ago and was practically nose-to-nose with the not-small t.v set. When I asked her to move back a bit, she scooched back barely half an inch. So I asked her to…

Making Digital Media Your Friend

I started my kid out on digital media way too early in life. And I still regret it. But I absolutely CANNOT deny how wonder it has been for me as a mother and how helpful it is when I need more information, especially for my kid. Today barring the frivolous stuff that he watches…

What I Learnt From My Kid’s School

Courtesy Facebook's memories I get to know about how and what I was thinking not only on a time a specific time in the past but also how I was feeling. And when I wrote this post I was a bit more of an anxious mother, fretting about my kid's school, academic "career" as it were…

Movie Review: Rustom

It's good to watch movies. Good or bad. Gives one an idea about the kind of things film makers are thinking about and if they do have the pulse of their audience. With Rustom they succeeded in breaking out of the run-of-the-mill Bollywood masala grist and yet failed to craft a taut film that makes…

Let me start by saying that I've usually felt that Salman Khan is akin to a horse's ass. He isn't that good an actor and the only thing I can say in his favor is that at his age, keeping up with that kind of body and dancing like a lunatic takes stamina. So yay...kudos…

Book Review- Fowl Language

This book speaks for itself. It's non-preachy and basically talks about the incomprehensible, inexplicable turns a person's life takes once they become a parent. From juice boxes to joy, partying to poop and basically the utter, utter delight and nerve-wracking situation that is parenthood. Brian Gordon is someone every parent and non-parent should read (although…

36

Ask a woman if she's easier in her mind about being 36 years old versus being 36 in the waist and you can bet you'll be on the receiving end of the MOST disdainful look which roughly translates to, " Yeah right! AS IF! What kind of question is that anyhow? How DUH ARE you?!"…

The Laundry Bugbear

I can totally understand why certain people cross over to the dark side and embrace OCD. Well, given that we're talking of OCD am guessing the embracing is a compelling act, 'cuse the pun, por favor. So laundry...yeah. It's a necessary evil if you want to wear clean clothes and in case you don't have…
