Being a stay at home mom is a different kettle of fish. If kettles full of fish aren't your thing, feel free to put in a vegetarian or a vegan option if that rings your bell. I am, for the most part, a Stay At Home Mom. It was a decision that I made pretty... Continue Reading →
We are a one-child family. I come from a single-child family while Red has a sibling. My dad has numerous siblings and my mom has two. I've gotten pitying looks on and off while I was growing up, about being a "single, only, lonely" child. And I've smiled to myself because that's not all that... Continue Reading →
TO's ideas about life and death are shaped quite a bit by the things he sees online. And since he sees more grown- up content these days vis-a-vis Mickey Mouse Club House, Noddy et al, death is portrayed more in the Occidental way than it is the Oriental or Indian way. He's seen characters who... Continue Reading →
A lot has been written about the people in the frontlines of this pandemic. As it should be. They literally are the first line of defence and often end up in hazardous situations themselves in the process of trying to cure or keep the populace safe. But I don't think enough has been written about... Continue Reading →
So it's the start of winter and an impending cyclone that's dumping water on our city, further making the temperatures drop. But I've only managed to get TO to wear his joggers but no long sleeve tees because apparently legs and hands feel cold separately and independently. Oh mercy...
Red and I decided that reducing the amount of time TO spends on digital media is the best thing for him and us...now and long-term. And in order to do that, we need to switch off (literally and figuratively) from the stuff we're doing and spend time with him; no matter what. And so we... Continue Reading →
TO was working on a music assignment for school where he kept sharing bits and pieces of Western Classical music with me and saying what it felt like for him. Then came the zinger- "Ayu this guy Bitch makes good music!" and he showed me the laptop screen which had this- https://www.youtube.com/embed/KW4ooLi1yxE Luke 23:34!
After a slightly longer than usual week where TO tested positive and then negative for Covid; we are back to enjoying family time around the dining table. And it feels great! It's lovely hearing him prattle along where I can share those amused side-eye glances with Red instead of the three of us being in... Continue Reading →
Once upon a time, there was a little boy. He was a bit scrawny when he was born but he put on weight and filled out and got himself some plump little cheeks, arms and legs and gurgled all day long. He was a happy little boy and made his parents very happy too! Except... Continue Reading →
Another post that was left midway, most likely due to household chores and my personal Disruptor! Lockdown mornings are wonderful (read between the lines)! Instead of dragging TO out of bed, I now kind of nudge him till he rolls out and then get him to clean out his eye gunk before he gets online... Continue Reading →
