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…

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…

Park-hopping and Playtime

We were having one of those weeks where we would return home tired-to-the-bone with happy smiles plastered on faces. With sand filled shoes and hair (SOOO much sand, it wasnt even funny). When the kids are rushed to the bath first thing after entering the door. Quick showers and bedtime stories and MANY(!) bottles of…

Life Lately ..

In a series called Life Lately, I will be sharing from time to time some random moments that somehow get captured amidst all the mayhem and chaos. From the looks of our photos, it may seem that i have got it all together, but i don’t. I only capture the best moments, because frankly who…

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…

It’s a smile, it’s a kiss – it’s summertime!

Summer — the time for ice lollies and showers in the backyard, the time of slow days and long naps and lemonade breaks, the time to share silly family stories over mangoes, the time to run around wild all day with no rush to be somewhere else, cycling along the neighbourhood streets, swinging in the…

Oh my Mommy Heart !

I feel happier and most fulfilled during my chaotic days as a mother than i ever have. with a baby tugging on my shirt, and another constantly chattering away and wanting my attention. usually surrounded by a mess of mismatched toys and ALWAYS running late. but i love it. even when they drive me crazy,…

Motherhood is ..

(Starting this blog with the name of Allah) It only seemed appropriate that i start with blog with a few words on motherhood. I could write books when it comes to it but i guess a couple of paras for now should be fine. Motherhood is cuddling, squeezing and smooching at every chance possible. Motherhood…
