Realizations: Gym Diaries

For all the smart alecky stuff I've written about my gym experiences, one thing stands out sharply in my mind; people have no business not being healthy!! The larger you get from eating unwisely, the flabbier you get from not having adequate activity to stay fit and strong; the longer it takes to get to…

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…

Yet Another Epiphany

I had another Ah-HA! experience this morning while "attempting" to explain to MLM why something is desirable and why something isn't. People (parenting experts, those whose kids are no longer a pain-in-the-ass and those who are blissfully childless) usually say that it sets a bad example to communicate with a growing child using largely negatives…

Zero. Dark. 2:37 AM

I wanted my first post in the new year to be witty, funny, tongue-in-cheek but I guess I'll be falling back on my old form of ranting about my kid. My forte in life et al. This morning my darling ray of sunshine switched on all the lights in my room at 2:37 am and…

Reblogged: Marking Territory

Everywhere I look, I sit the offspring's presence prevails.

There are clothes clips on the futon, tigers and lions (figures) under the sofa cushions and Play…

I'll tell you...just let me spin out my tale a bit more... Parenting. Glorious parenting. Tis fun. Tis joyous. Brings tears to your eyes at times (for many reasons,…

Waterloo: Circa 2014

Ordinarily I am a card-carrying agnostic but today I am ready to drop to my knees and give thanks to the Galactic Amoeba if it means that MLM will conk off early and give me a wide berth before he does so. Today has been mind-numbingly exhausting and I have begun to think that I've…

Only Pains…Gains Are Faaar Behind!

We live on the 7th floor and there are perfectly good stairs leading to wherever you want to go in the building. *shudders* at the thought of trekking down all the way when there are perfectly good elevators in place too! But with gravity having more influence on the body day by day I decided…
