Disney, Fairy Tales and Feminism

I wanted to write a blog post about this topic for a long time now. I couldn’t find enough time to blog, thanks to the hectic work schedule in the new team. I spent most of my free time this month in cleaning the house and applying minimalism techniques I learnt in some of these…

Random thoughts

Just some random thoughts. It was a while since I did a post on anything other than books.

Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

I finally got hold of “Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and finished reading it in one sitting. I was not sure if it would be helpful to me considering how I am trying to a raise a boy. But I could not be more wrong. There are many…

Life update

It’s been long since I spoke about what’s going on in my life. I guess it is time for an update. Life with a toddler is pretty tough. Especially a toddler who doesn’t care about food or eating. Every time he eats something for lunch or dinner, we feel we have accomplished something. He is…

First birthday party

Our son completed one year and we had a birthday party to celebrate his first birthday. I was more excited about his birthday party as this was the first party in my life that I was organizing all by myself. I had started planning his birthday even before he was born. I know it sounds…

My son’s daycare adventure always had downs but I finally see something good happening. We enrolled him in a daycare that hubby and I really liked even before he was born. But our experience was bad when we took him there on his first day. We noticed that the teachers did not even pick up or calm…

Baby update

Our Christmas came early as our little one decided to move forward today. I am so happy that he started crawling. I have been waiting for this day ever since he was born. He is now independent and can easily move around. This also means we need to be extra vigilant all the time. He…

3 months

We finally crossed the 3 months milestone. First 3 months are supposed to be the most challenging period of parenting. Thanks to my mom who has been losing sleep for my sake, I was able to cross this period without much issues. I have no idea how I would have managed this phase alone. Yet…

“First children tend to be a choice parents make to fulfill their own lives and a second child tends to be a choice parents make to fulfill the life of their existing child.” – from book “One and Only” by Lauren Sandler. Ever since I became pregnant with my baby, people have been advising me…
