I have no idea how that happened 😉 That's what happens when the weekend becomes a marathon food prepping, dish-washing/ laundry sorting, washing, folding and sorting again session. Add to the mix, a self- destructively curious, relentlessly roving toddler on a food strike. Now I understand what comfort eating means! Till next time.. Dr J.
The Daddy Diaper Bag!
I was cleaning out the Dad Diaper Bag today, and was amazed at how efficient and minimalist it was. Zoe does spend a lot of alone time with Papa. She has even been to office a few times. They may spend anywhere from a few hours to an entire day on their own. They are... Continue Reading →

There is this blog I follow. Regularly, almost obsessively. The blogger is a stay-at-home mother of two who makes a living out of sharing her life on social media.

Simplicity and patience.
Of all the things I wish I could be, the ones that would probably make the most difference are simplicity and patience. I wish I were simple in mind and habit. I wish I were patient with circumstance. Aahh, how much less harassing life would be then! Tao Te Ching is a tiny little beauty... Continue Reading →
See you tomorrow. Be there tomorrow, for sure. Ahh! lets just fix it tomorrow. Will sort it over tomorrow. Tomorrow. Tomorrow. We take it for granted. We use the word ever so casually. Nonchalantly. But our tomorrows are so fragile, so unreliable. There one moment and gone the next. Whoosh! Wiped off. Demolished. Disappeared from the... Continue Reading →

Life is a horrid, evil little miser when it comes to second chances. She rarely ever hands them out. At least, not in the 'big' things, or in the matters that matter. No sir. So, what if Life presents you with a second chance in something that you thought was over and done with. Something... Continue Reading →
