I have experience firsthand with only one child and that’s not counting the immature people in my life who refuse to grow up. I have one child. ONE. TO. But he might as well be part of a set of triplets the way he acts at times. One minute loving, sweet and the cutest kid … More It’s A Hard Knock Life!
I think it suffices to say that it has been a wonky year. For me I would push it back a bit more to the trip to Spain which had an unfortunate moment (read about it here) followed by other learnings+incidents that have led up to me sitting on the couch before the alarm goes … More When Negative Is The New Positive
I have a couple of pet peeves that I have carefully nurtured over the years; hence the word pet. Here they are in no particular order: Wet towels– thanks to Red and TO for making this a near constant in the household. Anyone touching my bed will think a chronic bedwetter lives here. Over time … More Pet Peeves
My feet are dry and the heels are cracked but I can’t figure out why. I badly want an hour long pedi but that’s not gonna happen in the foreseeable future so… am blaming it on the heat and lockdown because it’s du jour. Red was busy tapping away at his laptop and I told … More Of Feet and Mangoes

The words didn’t flow the way they usually do and I’ve made more revisions than I’ve ever done before, left it cooling on the rack as it were till I decided … More The Road Not Taken
I’ve written earlier about the advent of Alexa in our lives. Red was in the market for good quality speakers and was considering buying Sonos and then suddenly got his head turned by the cute lil dot that now talks to us in a STRONG American accent and frequently gets our song choices wrong because … More Tech-Savvy Woes
I used to like to read Cosmo and Marie Claire and Better Homes&Gardens until I realized that they weren’t reflective of my reality at all. According to Cosmo (and its ilk) life should be all about my body type, where I’m out on weekends at least 2xs a month and be having rip-roaring, toe-curling orgasms … More Womens Magazines: The Serpent of Eden?
The jury is still out on that one. On one hand you can remember them as the cutest, cuddliest, chubbiest drooly monsters that walked around with a diaper-covered bum. And on the other hand you wish you could sedate them or keep them in suspended animation when they’re getting their best and most annoying bratty … More Kids: Boon Vs Bane
