We didn’t do a thorough research when we moved into this neighborhood. All I wanted was to be closer to work and have some friends nearby- so I could swing home in case there was an emergency with the kids; drop off my expressed breast-milk; have emergency childcare when needed. These were my priorities when we moved here. 3 years later, the work place is … Continue reading To Trust or Not!
It feels like I have been breastfeeding my children for at least a decade. It is kind of true, though. Pratya was barely two and a half years old when Saral was born. I breastfed Saral even until after Sasha was born and tandem breastfed the first couple of months even though my husband strongly encouraged me to completely wean Saral. Poor guy still sucks … Continue reading Bidding Farewell to Breastfeeding
Single parenting is not for the faint-hearted. I have done it multiple times before, but every time it brings in new challenges, and somehow there is always enough grace to carry me over. Living with the man I love and raising children together comes with a lot of blessings and heartbreak. I am blessed to be doing life with this man I love, admire, and respect. … Continue reading Single Parenting
I am so glad to have met this doctor who has made my life so much easier. Along with many of you conscientious parents, I too was getting concerned about all the toxic chemicals and pollutants our kids are exposed to every day through food, body products, detergents, and what not.

The more I think of my culinary heritage, the more pride I can take in it. I would think the inclination I have now to fermented foods and drinks may have something to do with how much I loved ‘Gundruk’1 and ‘thwoñ’2 growing up. I have been making kombucha, yogurt, and sauerkraut quite religiously now. Love integrating these cultured foods in my diet. Sally Fallon, … Continue reading Let it Ferment
“Oh, hey, you are my suite-mate!” was the first sentence to the first friend I met at Timmer dorm in Kuyper College premises. 11 years have passed and we have been there for each other at different stages of our lives. There are some friends with whom many days, several months or years will have passed between conversations, but at every encounter, it will have … Continue reading I Bet You Don’t Have a Friend Like Mine!
We recently celebrated Mr. P’s 9th birthday. I did not feel a bit that we have had this young fella for these many years. It is also a reminder to ourselves that we, too, are aging with our kids. Maybe, we like to only focus on our kid’s growth. While doing so, we either tend to forget our age or just pretend behind the veil … Continue reading Birthday Party | One Stone – Kill Two Birds
