  • Just When The Phone Rings…
    Tweet It is one of those perfect moments, the kids are actively engaged and you are busy into activities of your own, and then the phone rings. You initially think perfect timing but the veteran mom will be glancing quickly at her kids as she reaches for the handset to make sure they are still occupied. Just as you settle into the conversation and the more engrossed...

  • Friday 5: 5 Reasons I Love Being A Mom!
    Tweet As part of the Mommy Niri Friday 5 series, here is the next installment. I belong to the mommy fraternity! Finally a club that would let me in. You know how it is when you can hear a kid scream and act out at a restaurant and you throw the mom an apologetic smile just to say, “relax, I feel for you and I know you are doing the best...

  • The Mommy Guilt
    Tweet While busy writing my resolutions at Mommy Niri, I realized that the whole mommy guilt issue deserved a whole topic of its own. Along with pressures we subject ourselves too, this guilt is by far the most personal. Trying at best to not give voice to most of our fears, as if once spoken they will morph in a life of their own. Already they play at the back of our...

  • My First Date!
    Tweet Well to put it more accurately, my first date with my husband since we had kids. What’s so weird about that, well it has been over 3 (long) years since we had a day to ourselves. The past 3 years have been a whirlwind with having 2 beautiful girls born to us. Finally having a nanny that we love has given us an opportunity to venture out on our own. It all...

  • You’re Beautiful!
    Tweet I finally made another visit to the the spa (yes the very same one I mentioned in my post Spa With Power Tools) in my final week before I resumed office work (although I have been a SAHM the past 3 years I have always worked, read my post on What Not To Say To SAHM).

  • Diet Starts Monday!
    Tweet No really, it does. Well, more like makeover starts today. For the last 4 years I have been either pregnant or nursing constantly and have paid little or no attention to myself. Since I gained a lot of weight with my first born ,and did not bother to lose it before being pregnant with my next baby, things kind of ballooned (excuse the phrase) out of control. Some...

  • Spa with Power Tools?
    Tweet I was on my way to the hair salon and when I found it closed I decided to go to the Spa next door. I really needed a pedicure anyway. For way over 3 years I have been either pregnant, too lazy, too tired or all of the above to give too much attention to my hands and feet. I read somewhere that white nail polish is the new color for any skin tone and though my inner...
