Ma Wednesday- Liking the dislikes.

Everybody talks of the beauty of being a parent. Many also share their challenges and hardships. But not often do we hear about disliking being a parent. Is it unkind, ungrateful and blasphemous to admit that I sometimes hate being a parent. Yes, hate. I often say to people how hate is such a strong... Continue Reading →

Rotten days.

It was a rotten, rotten day today. It is the weekend. I woke up grumpy, for no particular reason. And by mid-day I was utterly pissed at myself for being pissed. I was angry because I was grouchy and me being angry at myself made me more grumpy and well, it's a viscous cycle. I... Continue Reading →

Some days, you are The Universe's puppet. You wake up slouchy. The alarm fails you. The coffee- maker stutters and dies. The milk boileth over. There is a mammoth, God forsaken jam at the petrol station. And a scuffle in the parking lot. Sambhar stains your crisp, white linen shirt. And your colleague let's you... Continue Reading →

The struggle is real folks.

I have heard and read how babies are constantly changing, evolving. How they are fluid, and unstable. How their young minds and bodies are seeking individuality and uniqueness. That they are slowly but surely becoming "them". I had heard of toddler tantrums and terrible twos. I have smiled sympathetically at my cousins and aunts as they struggled with... Continue Reading →
