I write a LOT about parenting. Usually in states of bewilderment or gripes because while it’s a beautiful thing to experience (NOT) it is REPLETE with pitfalls, second-guessing oneself and for me: a usually irresistible urge to flip someone off. I know plenty of people who have kids and extol the experience to the heavens … More Parenting Chronicles- Part 1,2…Oh Screw It!
This morning I was startled awake by a different kind of ringing sound that am not used to hearing. I jumped out of bed trying to locate it when the lit screen of the iPad alerted me to an incoming FaceTime call. I rushed over to see an unknown US number and connected the call … More The Problem Of Plenty-Part Deux
This week signals one month since TO’s school started again…online albeit. And it’s been oh so interesting. I feel for the teachers, I really do. While the children have my sympathies since this is hardly the most optimum way of doing things, the teachers have to manage home and hearth plus keep an eye on … More My Week Till Now…

Of all the stories floating around about Hitler’s demise, am completely inclined to believe the one where he met his end in the bunker. That was a lockdown too and he was shut in for an unforeseeable period with a “loved one”…complete recipe for disaster!
Yesterday TO just semi-yelled out, “Oh darnit!” and I peeked out of the kitchen to see that the child had a nosebleed out of the blue!

Excuse the segue here but I fail to understand how people can say “bachchey … More Cabin Fever Blog#2

You see animal figurines appearing in laundry baskets, inners, the fridge and also the vegetable baskets. The little hooman hides the remote in his school backpack as payback for switching the telly off. There’s … More Cabin Fever Bloglet#2

It’s not enough that your flesh and blood can get under your skin enough to make you throw a hissy fit at the ripe old age of 40 but they bring out the big guns- obstinance … More Pain In The Donkey
It’s a longish title I admit but sometimes you have such a doozy of a week that you just need to get it out of your system and can’t be bothered by the aesthetics of formatting or “optimum” title lengths. Apparently blogging tip#1 is that one needs to keep the title ‘short and punchy‘ to … More Why Kids Should Come With Disclaimers
