The Gruffalo-obsessed child of a Friends-obsessed mother | Day 7/100

It’s official. My child loves The Gruffalo. I read it a total of FOUR times yesterday, and she still wanted more. A day that started with seeing a huge rainbow in the morning and ended with reading one of the classic children's books, it was the prelude to another milestone day. As much as Laddoo… Continue reading The Gruffalo-obsessed child of a Friends-obsessed mother | Day 7/100

The Secret to a Productive Day | Day 5/100

This day just goes on to show that a) How I start my day has a major impact on the rest of the day, and b) I am so much SANER after just one day of my husband being at home. I thought I was making a big deal when I told him it’s important… Continue reading The Secret to a Productive Day | Day 5/100

When a book changes your day | Day 3/100

This post contains affiliate links.* If I had to describe today in one word, it would be ENLIGHTENING. From the moment I woke up, I was dreading how the rest of the day would go because it was going to be the seventh consecutive day that I’d be alone with her and the seventh consecutive… Continue reading When a book changes your day | Day 3/100

What are our feet for? Green Sliding | Day 2/100

I think we can all agree that if there are fewer stories on Instagram than usual that automatically means that I’m either busy having so much fun that I don’t have the time or the energy to post anything, or that it’s been such a horrible day that I have absolutely no interest in posting… Continue reading What are our feet for?

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

If there is one incident that I remember very clearly, it would be the few hours leading right up to Laddoo’s birth. Since it has been almost two years, I’m a little fuzzy on the days leading up to that, but I do remember things. Before Laddoo was born, Sandeep and I had four amazing… Continue reading The Pensieve – Laddoo’s Birth Story

#FridayIntroductions – 10 Parenting Mantras Our Family Swears By

So I wanted to do this as an Instagram post and again, because I typed this on the computer instead of directly on the phone it went on for too many words and is now a blog post.

Of Mornings, Musings, and Mad Men

I am never going to be that kind of  a parent. The kind whose answer to every 'why' is 'because I told you so.' As a child, I would have loved some logical and practical answers to the things we were supposed to do. There is one particular thing that parents in every single household… Continue reading Of Mornings, Musings, and Mad Men

101 Excuses I can make, now that I have a Baby

I was the fifth girl among my friends to have a baby, so I saw firsthand how social behaviour changed once my friends became parents. And then there were other people I knew, whose behaviour I observed. There was a pattern, clearly. Of course, I knew people wouldn’t be as ‘available’ as they were before,… Continue reading 101 Excuses I can make, now that I have a Baby

Product Review | Soul Slings, Meh Dai

Babywearing has become one of the first 'Right Decisions' I made as a mother and I made this decision even before my baby was born. I started Being Mamma Bear back when I was still in my First Trimester and I stumbled on to the world of Babywearing very early on. I didn't know its… Continue reading Product Review | Soul Slings, Meh Dai
