Leaving the grocery store this morning, I noticed a mom holding the hands of her two young children as she waited to cross the parking lot to get to her car. With the amount of information one can glean from a very short observation of another, it appeared that the mom seemed relaxed and peaceful, as did…Continue

About a week ago I was driving over the George Washington Bridge. Traffic slowed for a few seconds and I was able to look at the steel girders, beams, rivets, and thick wires that held the bridge together. My eyes followed the construction upwards and my mind put me somewhere out there about 100 feet up over the Hudson.
I could see the sparkling…Continue

আমার খুব সহজে মাথায় ঠান্ডা লাগে, একদম জ্যাম হয়ে যায়। একারনে ভিটামিন সি এর উৎস খুজে বের করেছি। লেবু। রোজ এক গ্লাস লেবুর সরবত খাওয়ার চেষ্টা করি। অফিসে লেবু কিনে রেখেছি। এটা আমার জন্য খুবই উপকারি প্রমানীত হয়েছে। আমি দেখেছি। লেবুর সরবত না খেলে আমার ঠান্ডা লাগে। আবার ঠান্ডা লাগলে নিয়মিত সরবত খেলে সেরে যায়। বাসায় - অফিসে আমার চারপাশে অনেকেরই সর্দি কাশি হয়েছে। আমি এখনও সুস্থ আছি (আল্লাহ এর রহমতে)। দেখা যাক কতদিন থাকতে পারি।
আমি শুধু লেবুর রস খেতে…Continue

Recently my daughter and I stopped at my mother's house for dinner while my father happened to be away on a fishing trip. Dad is the kind of guy who has to have meat with every meal so when it's just us girls, Mom likes to make something a…Continue

Growing up my mother, sister and I were true moviegoers. Every Saturday, we were at the movies and to this day I watch a lot of movies, but not at the theaters as much. Well, I go to the movies, but it’s generally to watch a kids flick. You know how it goes, you have kids and things change. Thankfully, there is the Library(my #1 source), pay per view, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV and so many other outlets that make movies available quickly.
One of my favorite movies is …Continue

I know I’m going to catch a lot of flak for this, but hear me out guys. My oldest was done potty training at 2 years 4 months. To say that my new trainee was not responding well to toilet training would be the understatement of the year. The kid is stubborn. Like really stubborn and temper-mental. She’s kind of nuts actually. I introduced her to a potty around 16 months. She screamed like a banshee. The first potty had Disney Princesses, with music. Her little…Continue
We, the human species, need to practice conservancy and help these animals survive so that we can all continue to thrive too, as part of the circle of life.

Be a Kid Again!
Get up late
Eat a bag of Halloween candy
Send a Slinky down the stairs
Eat a sloppy drippy ice-cream cone
Nag your kids. Tell them you’re bored, there’s nothing good to eat, and no one to play with
Skip the make-up and the curling iron
Try to solve a Rubik’s Cube
Eat something really junky. I’ve been eyeing that…Continue
Five mornings a week I have the same conversation with my son involving the reality of it being morning (despite the lack of sunlight) and how he will need to depart the happy warmth of his bed and zombie-walk his way to the bathroom to get ready for school. My cheerful morning greetings are met with dreariness and drudgery.…Continue

Sometimes, I can't help but feel envious watching other healthy children eat and drink normally, without the need for medication. Anytime Sasha wants a bite of my muffin, or a glass of milk, or a tiny piece of chocolate, or just about anything, she has to have enzymes so that her body can get the help it needs to digest the fat and protein in the food. Of course giving Sasha enzymes is a minor request in order to keep her growing and as healthy as possible, but still there is that…Continue

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
- Albert Einstein
"You be her," my youngest says as she stuffs the surfer Skipper doll onto my lap.
Without a pause, she starts the conversation as ushe, "Oh hi."
"Oh hi," I chirp. "What's going on today?"
"Well, we're going to have a movie night tonight."
"Ooooh, I love movie night," I raise Skipper's…Continue
