In Case You Missed Them…Top Posts of 2016

Picking one’s favorite post is never an easy task. Thankfully, posts aren’t kids and no post is going to nurse a wounded ego should I not choose it for whatever reason. Then again, living with a toddler and an infant where your day is often spent in make believe conversations with talking cars, animals, and toys, I wouldn’t be surprised if my posts have nocturnal rendezvous discussing my life amongst themselves.


So, instead of picking my favorite posts, I am going to let you decide what you liked or not-so-much and merely present you with some choices. For others, you can do a simple search in the search bar on the homepage and read what pops up.

In addition, in case you missed them or are just joining my blogging adventures this year, I wanted to provide a summary of my posts so far, as thematically organized as I could find time to do. However, it turned out to be quite an onerous task so I am merely presenting the top posts of the last 6 months of 2016. Simply do a search for them in my search bar under the social media icons on the sidebar and you’ll be able to jump to any of the posts below.

The listed posts are about two inter-related primary themes: Momlife/Motherhood, and Raising Kids/Motherhood. They are not based on any kind of ranking or page visits or anything of the sort. They are simply some of the more content-driven posts I wrote in the last 6 months of 2016.

[Two of the areas I wrote about when I first started this blog were Pregnancy and Postpartum Realities. Even though I occasionally still write about these topics, my current focus is on raising my almost three-year-old toddler and almost-one-year-old infant. You can read more on these themes by clicking on the links above or using the tabs in the menu]

A former Communication Studies professor turned a somewhat reluctant stay-at-home-mom (SAHM), I blog about my adventures raising two multiracial kids. I write about parenting and living a multicultural Indian-Canadian-American HinJew life with honesty, a few tears, lots of laughter, and gallons of coffee.

  1. I have loved reading all your posts – first for the empathy I feel in them, and second for the slight curiosity to see how a mixed-race household functions !
    I haven’t been disappointed in both counts.
    Keep writing.

    1. Haha… the same as everyone else’s except for a tad bit more stress about failure to give my kids much of my own culture because they are being raised in the US. Thanks for reading and for all your thoughtful comments.

    2. Haha… same as everyone else’s except for a tad bit more stress due to the failure to give my kids more of my own culture because they are raised in a third country. Thank you for reading my posts and for your advice, encouragement, and always uplifting comments.

      1. Oh, that stress exists in single-race, raised-in-same country households too, believe you me. You could actually be doing a better job than I, because you are conscious of it !

        1. You always know how to make me feel better. Thank you.
