We took him to the bookstores and kept browsing for books, while he got to touch the books and explored them. Serious reading started few months later and he was introduced to a variety of picture books. What I realized was that most of the… Read More

Egg Shell Cracking and Slicing Activities

I must have been 10 or 12 years when I cracked the first egg for my omelets. As a child I always thought that eggs were to be handled by adults. Oh boy, how wrong was I. My little ones tryst with eggs began when he was 18 months old and he is more of a pro now. We do have our hit and misses, nevertheless he generally does a clean job 🙂 I decided to take it to the… Read More

Pre-reading activities or reading readiness is like a warm-up before you start exercising. I have a curated list of free printables which you can directly download from the websites. Montessori explains that the sensitive period for language is from 0-6. Reading aloud books and… Read More

A Happy Positive C-Section Birth Story

It’s been two weeks since I had a newborn.  I wanted to share my positive C-section story with you all. C-section and happy positive in the same sentence? Well, I did have one 🙂 Three years back when I was pregnant with my first born, all the pregnancy books I read spoke about vaginal birth (vaginal birth only). I was so confident that I would have a vaginal birth and C-section was not the word for me. I assumed and… Read More

My Parenting Goals to Make Life Better in 2017

2016 was a busy year for me.  The blog turned into an ecommerce website and since then things have been too hectic. And then I got pregnant.

Blame it on my hormones 🙂 We all strive to be better parents every day, don’t we?  So do I.No matter how hard my… Read More

100 Activities/Books – One at a Time

Lately I have been kind of distracted from preparing learning activities for my son . I have very little time to spend alone with my son and I do not want to miss this golden period with him.

We have been having more screen time these… Read More

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein Book Review

The Giving Tree Unconditional love!! When I was a little girl, I heard this story for the first time in a church sermon along with my dad. And I remember my dad telling me the same story one night. But he told me something more to the story I heard. He told me that parents would give everything they have to their kids without expecting anything back in return just to see their kids happy. It didn’t make much sense… Read More

Recommended Book List for Toddlers and Preschoolers

I have always been an avid reader and I also read while I nursed my son. Probably he took it from me; he was so interested in books than his cars or Lego blocks. When we started to have limited screen time after he turned two, there were on and off periods of reading. And to wean him off the screen time, we went back to the books. And it worked liked a charm. This morning, I saw him cuddle… Read More
