Shaking hands with reality.

I mostly try to come to this space for positivity, sharing happy thoughts, constructive lifestyle stuff. But there is always another side to the things too. I dont believe in hiding the negative parts but i understand that joy sparks more joy, happiness begets happiness, and there have been countless times when i have been…

This Season of Motherhood.

This season of life. This season of motherhood. This season of being forever-on-the-go. This season of getting sloppy toddler kisses all over the face, all day long. This season of on-the-loop school pickups, dropoffs, packing lunches and washing uniforms. This season of getting rainbow 🌈 love hearts 💕 from a 5 year old everyday. This…

Azaan turns THREE !

Mothering hamza was so new and unpredictable and different. I was unsure, i didnt know right from wrong. I was treading ever-so-slightly the untravelled path, afraid of making a mistake, of doing wrong by him. I didnt know what to expect, when to expect. I was a new mother with all the classic new-mother traits….

The busy mother

Being a mother is a tough gig. But being a mother in a foreign land is impossibly hard at times. You are not just responsible for your kids, but every single aspect of ‘living ‘imaginable has to be done manually by you. Scrub the toilet, wash the car, fix the broken light, make lunches n…

On this Mother’s Day

To the mother who wakes up multiple times a night to check on her babies, to the mother who has to wake up before the sun comes out, to the mother who left her work to be with her children, to the mother who chooses to work and thinks of her kids every moment, to…

Azaan turns 2 !!

Wow.. that was fast! My littlest one, already two years old and officially out of the baby zone. Just gonna type a quick, casual, letter post to you, AZ boy. Being always on the run, short on time but high on life these days as I am. Its still better to have something up rather…

What to expect with Baby no.2

The other day I got a stressed out message from a friend who just had her second baby a few weeks ago and was feeling all the chaos that comes with it and having a hard time to see any light at the end. You know the time when you are emotionally and physically worn…

A journey ends …

Breastfeeding came easily to me, with both my babies. I loved nurturing their little bodies through my own. I loved the closeness, the warmth, the belonging-ness, the drunken eyes they make soon after latching on, the eagerness, the playfulness, the absolute joy. Much like pregnancy and birth, breastfeeding journey is beautiful, challenging, tiring and precious. It requires…

Happy 4th to my Shining Boy!

Hello! I have been away from my home and laptop for a couple of weeks (details coming soon). And just logged into my blog to discover lovely messages from some readers and fellow bloggers. And even though I am finding it really hard to get back into the blogging groove after a couple of weeks…

Boys doing House Chores

I have got my house chores sorted, haha. As you can see in this little video that I compiled from a few random clips of my boys cleaning and scrubbing the house. Please no one call the child protection services on me, they love to do it on their own hehe. Keeps them busy and…

My favourite stage is now.

The day I found out I was having another baby, I earnestly started waiting for the time when both my kids will be past the baby stage and into toddlerhood and not needing to be held and watched over every second. When they would chase each other down the house while shrieking happily at being…

On having Two Boys

I am going to do a series of posts on having two kids, siblings relationship, life with two toddlers etc. as one would just not cover it all. Obviously i will just be talking about my own experience of it all and how we tackle our day to day and have evolved ourselves in this last year…
