Why I Document EVERYTHING | Day 1/100

This post showed up in my memories today that reminded me that on this day last year, I had started the 100 Day Countdown to Laddoo’s second birthday.

Mommy Diaries

Sanity First

Seems very obvious, doesn’t it? In fact, given that we, the moms of LORM, put these words on a mug, I should have given them more value. Sadly, I’ve become an expert and not putting myself and my sanity first; it’s almost as if I have an insanity wish (it’s like a death wish, but… Continue reading Sanity First

My weaning story – Part 1

Let me start by saying that even though I breastfed for 2 years, 1 month, 3 weeks, 5 days, plus one more feed, I am not proud of the fact that I chose to wean so early. If the situation were different, I would have loved to go on for as long as Laddoo needed.… Continue reading My weaning story – Part 1

The Pensieve – Laddoo’s Birth Story

Because she has scratched my… Continue reading Product Review | Aveeno Daily Moisture Lotion
