Free-Range Vs Helicopter Parenting: Indian Scenario

I am all for being a hands-off parent. I really would like to be able to observe my child, see him grow rather than always be present while he is doing his thing. For someone who has been a SAHM from the first moment, it is quite a treat to be able to see your…

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…

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…

There’s A Great White Under The Bed

It's only 3 inches long but my big toe did come in contact with its great gaping maws...and this isn't the first time there was a "dangerous" animal lurking where it shouldn't have been.

Reblogged: Marking Territory

Everywhere I look, I sit the offspring's presence prevails. The jar of Gummybears are usually within hand's reach although with the child-proof caps it's still a bit in our control when we want to hand the bears over. There are clothes clips on the futon, tigers and lions (figures) under the sofa cushions and Play…

Shocks On The Way To School

I'll admit it here and possibly have it engraved on a metal plate and hang it somewhere prominently...NO ONE CAN SHOCK ME AS MUCH AS MY CHILD! While I was dropping him to school this morning he suddenly got very excited and shouted out, " LOOK! FUCKS!" I nearly had a WTF moment myself and…

Mr. Popularity (Temporarily)

MLM has been learning about farming and farm animals at school. While I was picking up some stuff for the house today I came across a very nondescript plastic bag with a bunch of farm animal figurines. Providence! I thought it'd help reinforce some concepts. I bought it for him as an after-school surprise and MY!…
