I can't believe this tiny butterfly that flitted about all the time, SO out of anybody's reach, is now a Big Girl. Almost as tall as I am, Medha looks, talks and thinks much older than her actual age of 11. I sometimes forget that she's still a kid and share some of my ideas … Continue reading A Young lady or a Big girl- Medha turns 11.
"Should we learn Blackjack or Poker now?", Madhav, my younger one, asks me. We learnt card games like Donkey, spoon, Rummy and Go Fish watching YouTube videos and now we play them in rotation. Madhav taught himself a few card tricks and now he offers free sessions as gifts on our birthdays. He resorts to … Continue reading Rubick’s Cube to Rummy – Turning 8 in COVID times
Yess...we are finally a family of 4. We rang this year with the birth of our daughter Nyra. I was wrong to believe that it would be easier the second time around. So far It has not been easy.

"I finally reached a 2-digit age!!!" was Medha's delight and relief at turning 10! This girl can't wait to grow up! She's counting the years before she becomes a teenager! God save us when she does!

Madhav just turned 7! He has grown taller yet not an inch wider! He is smarter, naughtier, yet he remains the apple of everyone’s eye, including his sister’s, though she will fiercely deny this! Ha! Sibling rivalry! Not a day goes by without the 2 squabbling and skirmishing, pinching and pulling one another’s hair, complaining … Continue reading Madhav @7
Oh What do I write about Medha, my firstborn, when I'm still trying to figure her out myself?!?! There have been times when I have felt like asking her, "Who ARE you?" Seriously! She's so unlike me, that I find it hard to believe she came from me! Medha is a riddle I'm trying to … Continue reading Medha @ 8
My littlest isn't too little anymore! He turned 5 a few days ago and tells me 5 years has been fun so far! He is tall; he's skinny; he has the biggest, most teeth- and gum-baring smile of all. But don't be fooled by his stick-like appearance! Thanks to the taekwondo lessons he's been going … Continue reading Madhav @ 5

She has … Continue reading Medha at 6
Madhav at 3 is still a mama's little boy, always following her around like a puppy. He loves each and every one of the rest of his family to pieces too, especially the men.

Dear Medha, I'm sorry I haven't been able to write much to you. Not because there isn't much going on with you, but BECAUSE there is! We're too busy right now, neck-deep in your school stuff and home stuff. Apart from 2 big Weddings in the family, the arrival of guests home, there's so much … Continue reading Letter to Medha
