On Friday, 26th April 2019, my husband, sons and I headed to the Museum of Illusions with varied expectations. I had seen so much of it on Instagram that I knew I wanted to walk out with some cool pictures of all of us. My husband just wanted to explore a new place with us, thankfully a place that did not involve any shopping, eating or running up and down play areas. The kids – well, they just wanted to have loads of fun!
I’ve always been someone who loves my sleep, but lately I realized that I had trouble falling asleep at night. I have to be up by 5.30 am on most days to send my sons to school, but there are days when I cannot fall asleep till 1.30am! I do not take an afternoon nap on most days (thanks to my boys, but trust me, sleep is the only thing on my mind between 3-4pm) and I do not exceed 2 cups of coffee on any given day. As a result of sleeping late, I find it really tough to be able to get up and stay awake in the morning and it has started affecting my immunity and mental health.
Recently, I attended a PCOS Support group and while discussing some common PCOS symptoms I realized that Insomnia, or not being able to fall asleep easily, is actually very common in a lot of women with PCOS!
Looking for a simple but fun Valentine craft activity to keep your little ones busy, this February? These Valentine Heart Flowers are just what you need.
W R I T E –
My #onelittleword for 2019. For many reasons.
Do you agree that Back to School shopping is as much fun for mums, as it for the kids?
Yes, going to the malls, braving the traffic and parking issues, not forgetting the strollers and the tantrums is NOT fun! But being able to shop from the comfort of your home, in your pyjamas, with a coffee mug in hand… Now that can be fun!
Continuing our tradition of crafting fun toys to play with, we decided to make Binoculars to add to our ‘Rescue team’ toys.
The boys’ loved playing with their DIY Walkie-talkie and were super excited to make these binoculars.
May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month and reading stories of so many fellow mom bloggers on Instagram, took me back to my initial days of motherhood and how I hated everything about being a mother, except my darling baby of course!
It all started with my birth story –
It’s Spring break! The kids are home on a break from school. How often do you hear the words “I’m bored!”? It’s strange how the kids have a house full of toys and games but they never seem to have anything to do. I decided to make an activity jar for them, with the names of all their toys and activity ideas. They would have to pick one anytime they were bored and then do that activity.
Keeping with our crafty tradition, we decided to decorate the jar on the outside ourselves.
One of the biggest dilemmas facing modern-day parents is the ever-increasing number of fun and educational toys available for their kids, and the lack of space to store them. I recently came across an online toy library, www.ubitoyz.com and think it is a brilliant concept and the solution to most parents’ troubles. Ubitoyz goes a step further than being a toy library, it offers the option of selling toys too.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and I wanted the boys to do a craft that would involve my younger son, 3 years old, to be able to participate in too. It had to be something they could make for their Grandmothers and aunt, as well. What better than a DIY photo frame with a special picture of each one in it as a keepsake!
I had recently discovered Amazon India, and found these variety packs of washi tapes on sale. I ordered them to get them delivered to my parents who were visiting Mumbai at the moment. Naturally, I was itching to use them as soon as I received them. This special Mother’s Day craft just HAD to be done with these washi tapes.
The DIY photo frame is really simple to do, and my 3 year old was able to work with the tapes too. It takes less than 20 minutes, provided you have a printed photo already.
