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!
When two people set off a chain reaction that still has them smiling, facepalming and being gobsmacked with unfailing regularity…
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 … More The Saga Of A Little Boy
TO is the gift that keeps giving. Sadly, I don’t know how to switch it off! I was helping him out with some comprehension sentences when the name Elizabeth came up. He knows Elizabeth mainly in conjunction with the Queen and Buckingham palace and automatically tacked on “The Queen” in front of the name leading … More Never A Dull Moment
The word ‘turbulent’ here refers to the frame of mind of the parents of tweens and not the tweens themselves.

Needless to say with TO turning 10 and his cuteness factors dipping day by day; a chirping and twirling child … More Alexa…Get Me A Gun!
I crashed by myself last night…was listening to music, sorting out playlists…everything you need head space for and which can’t always be done effectively with someone staring at you with googly eyes and asking, “what are you doing?” for the millionth time. I avoided weird bedtime conversations but couldn’t avoid them during the next morning … More Saturday Morning Conversations
TO’ school’s set to reopen come next Monday (does a mini jig of joy). I like my kid being at home provided he doesn’t get into that mode of where he wants me to generate things for him to do and then proceeds to shoot down each and every one of them just because! Anyhoo, … More Conversations From The Back Seat
For anyone who’s wondering about the sudden jumps in the numbers on the blog posts, let’s just put it down to outright artist license and move onto the good stuff. Here’s another post which brought a smile to my face because life has interesting ways of teaching us lessons.. Vengeance is mine, and I will … More Retroblogging#67
