Want to know my secret?

At a playdate with friends the other day one of the moms turned to me and asked what my secret was? For a moment I stood perplexed. Why whatever did she mean!? Did she want to know if I had found the fountain of youth? Did I really look that good? I just started using a new shampoo; maybe I was rocking a sweet do? I couldn’t help but smile as I inquired,” what secret?”.

আরেকজনকে সাহায্য করার সময় যা ভাবি (What we think when we help others)

[English version has given below]
আমরা আরেকজনকে কোনো সাহায্য করার সময় ভাবি... কাজটা কি ঠিক করছি? এতে কি আমার কোনো ক্ষতি হবে? সে আমার জন্য কি করেছে যে আমি তাকে সাহায্য করতে যাব? তাকে সাহায্য করলে আমার কি উপকার হবে? শুধু শুধু সময় নস্ট করছিনা তো? সে আমার যতটুকু উপকার করেছে, আমি তাকে ঠিক ততটুকুই সাহায্য করবো, এর বেশি কেন করতে যাবো?
এবার চলুন একটু অন্য ভাবে চিন্তা করি, আমি প্রতিদিন কত মানুষের সাহায্য নেই? রিক্সাওয়ালা রিক্সাচালানোর জন্য পয়সা নিয়েছে, তারপরও বাড়ির সামনে পানি…

STOP AND THINK

kid

Hey Friends of the Blog! I hope that your New Year is going well so far. It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve blogged. I had some computer issues (that’s why some of you are seeing this blog twice) and a bad case of Blogger’s Block. But leave it to the kids to spark up inspiration

A few days ago, my husband and I heard a noise by our bed at 4:45am. It was the 4 year…

The Day I Discovered My Husband's Side Chick

The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried.  I’ve  known my husband for quite some time.  We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes.  From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies.  After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to  San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again.  Needless to say life is funny.  After 8 years  we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…

Though they are entitled to…

Among the perks of having babies in the 1980′s, 1990′s and 2000′s is that your kids’ friends’ parents– your friends– span many decades as well. Mom-friends who were rearing their last-born when I was fearfully raising my first grew up during FDR’s administration; some friends I’ve met through my 8-year-old entered the world while Reagan served. Consequently, I’ve been exposed to quite a number of parenting styles.
