I’m busier than I want to be and at the same time I find time to begin this crazy blog! Some make what you want from that information! I think I’ll try to update it daily – but we shall see how it goes. After all I have lot to be getting on with – but that is possibly one reason why I’m doing this it’s sort of like going out without having to get childminders. So that means that you – my readers – are now officially my buddies! It will be a largely one sided conversation – mainly due to the fact that I’ve turned off the blog commenting – this is not because I don’t love - because I do – but rather because I’d like my flows and rants to be one sided. Sorry if that makes you feel blocked out but it’ll make it easier for me to speak my mind without worrying about offending or disagreeing with anyone.
When I started this bloggy thing, I never imagined I would write anything controversial. In fact, I’ve spent years trying to be anything but controversial. But, as my opinions have gotten stronger and my voice has gotten louder, I have managed to ruffle a few feathers. I really don’t like it when people get upset about things I write, however I still feel compelled to write about certain topics that might do just that. This one is a biggie, in my real life ultra-conservative community, and specifically with many people that I know and love. Read the rest of this entry »
You see, I am trying to raise feminist sons. Not emasculated boys who cannot feel comfortable in their own skins. I want them to grow into men who will respect women. And the lilEinstien’s question was a fair one given the media and social influences in our society that lead him to question what makes a person good or bad while he is also considering the larger social constructs of the kind of false-beauty as he sees it on tv and in the movies in contrast to the beauty he sees in the people he loves and cares about in our circle of loveys.

Earlier this week, I heard the story of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman who killed himself after discovering that his roommate and a friend had set up a hidden webcam and streamed live video on the internet of Tyler having sex with a man. His roommate Dharun Ravi had tweeted a month before that he found out his roommate was gay and had also invited people to watch the live video via a link that he also tweeted. The webcam was turned on remotely from the room of Ravi’s friend Molly Wei. Both are currently charged with invasion of privacy, but is it enough? Read the rest of this entry »
Whoever said I would be bored once all of my kids were in school was crazy. In fact, I think it was the other way around…I was bored when my kids were home. YIKES…that sounds bad, even to me. Let me clarify… Read the rest of this entry »
I admit that sometimes I let my emotions get the best of me (duh) and sometimes what I write comes across differently than I meant. I knew that my post yesterday would push some buttons. Surprisingly, all of the feedback I got on the blog or facebook was positive. I did however have a conversation with a friend that concerned me a little bit. My comments about politics and Planned Parenthood specifically rubbed her the wrong way. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s no secret that I’m doing a lot of things differently in my life these days. At the beginning of the school year, I started meditating every morning. For me, that means I have at least 10 minutes of stillness every day. I also go to yoga regularly, in fact this month I’ve been 17 times. That means I get a lot of quiet time to think. It’s amazing what you hear, when you take the time to be quiet and still and calm. Read the rest of this entry »
I am not a complex creature – so perhaps that is time I became a bit more sophisticated! A simple molecular mixology kit, might be the answer…. it might also help me get through some of those wholesale cream chargers that are filling my box right now!
Referring back to the original super-enthusiastic post here imaginatively entitled X-Pole – I have been swayed towards the idea of actually going for a cheaper, more disposable pink party pole. There is something pleasing about the throwaway nature of this almost disposable pole. Perhaps I was getting to carried away with the hallowed nature of the x-pole dancing pole when really it is just toy. Actually not literally a toy although Tescos might think otherwise read hereRead the rest of this entry »
I needed a man in my life – but perhaps the voodoo knife block man was not what I had in mind…. however he is strong, accommodating and easy to clean – so perhaps he really is what I was looking for! And he would never stab me in the back – although he’s done it to himself! He’s called “the Ex” so I guess that he can never become “the Ex”. What’s more he sits quietly in the corner until I need him. Plus he spends all of his time in the kitchen – so that makes him the perfect man. In case you’ve know idea what I’m talking about then take a look at this video here
Granted it isn’t the most exciting video ever in the history of the world – but I hope it gets the idea across.
As I am busy and a mom also, I have to face many problems. I think, as like as me, many other busy moms also have to face such matters. Here is a problem that I faced; even some days ago! My days pass with a tumultuous of movement. I drop my elder daughters to school every morning, and then lift one at 12:00 a.m. and other one at 1:30 p.m. Then after the school, I take them to the athletics center, piano coaching, or sports, moreover I generally move out to market or shops to purchase one or more things. Therefore, my little child is not snoozing most often days and also is often bad-tempered at late afternoon. Letting the elders to do their home task is harass also!
However, I have solved my problems by my own. I have reduced my X-Pole time. I have set up the carpools used for school as well as other movements. I have limited my carpooling to a single or else two days. Moreover I have arranged someone to look after my little child on those specific days so that she can fix to her snoozes.
I also have kept a track of behavior on a schedule and also have established a routine after returning from school. As for example, my daughters require getting into the actual habit of returning home, having some snacks, then finishing their home task in the right way and so on.
To reduce my duty time, I usually maintain an automated checking record of groceries as well as other requirements, and also I keep a handy printout. By this way, I can point out things that I need, also I can get the shopping list with me when I go for shopping.
As like as me, today’s mom are so much busy with their other activities. Personally, I have to busy with my job almost all day long. Although, now I like to spend most of my times with my children, after an accident occurring a couple of weeks ago.
On that day, I and my husband went to our job early at the morning. Often there is a care taker for our children at the home. But, that day, the care taker did not come due to his illness and I totally forgot that thing. When I was leaving home, I was thinking that the care taker will come after some times. So, I had no headache about children. It was so unexpected that, children had to stay at home alone till my lunch time. There was nobody to prepare any food for them. My children are only 5 and 7 years old, so they did not have that ability to prepare or cook their food by their own.
Just at the lunch time, at about 2 pm, when I come back to home, I cried out after seeing my little kids’ condition. I was really feeling very much shameless and still I am. My kids were starving till lunch and waiting for their mom. How could a mom do such thing with her own children! But, truly speaking, I did not do that by my own wish. That was unexpected! Really unexpected!
From then, I love to spend most of my times with my children. I’ve already reduced my other work pressures. Now, my only wish is to see happy my children. I realize that feeling, when my little kids call me mom. That is awesome! So, now I want to be a good mom, not a busy mom.
One obvious solution is to train your kids in the art of the cream chargers – so they can always prepare a snack for themselves!
Women are now busier than yet. We are moms, entrepreneurs, executive, and public prosecutor and so on at a time! And so it’s not a shock that we regularly face clashes in managing our many tasks. We continuously struggle to locate the ideal stability linking home-life with career-life. Therefore, our style and awareness of the newest trends get a backseat at the back of children, outdoor works, and many other household responsibilities. For several of us, selecting out of wearing in the dawn is an anxiety tasks.
However, we moms are bound to look after out children in proper way. Otherwise, they can be miss-guided by other ways. So, it is very much necessary to guide them properly as our own way. Sometimes, we can play video games with them with a childish attitude as children expected from us. Show them the merits and also demerits of over-playing these video games with their own language, what they can accept easily. In making understand them about it, I never behalf rough to them. So, they can take it very easily and understand also.
I often, in my holidays, let my children to visit to any park with my husband, so they can entertain themselves and feel better at the weekend. They eagerly wait for the weekend, but if I cannot able to do so due to my any other activities, I confirm them that earlier.
I always try take best care of my children, so than I think they can never say that, our mom is busy. Off course I am! But, I never let them to feel that. I believe that, it is not true that a busy mom can never take actual care of their children. Obviously they can, if they try.
I cannot able to spend so many times with my kids as I often have to busy in my work. Although I try to follow some rules to let my baby safe:
When I use the oven, I’ve seen that it attracts my baby! Using of oven is a matter of huge energy; so it is better to cook several things at a same time while oven is used. Except it is about to cook a cake, I always keep the door of the oven closed, I can roast my vegetables, when the mutton or chicken or beef is roasting. Otherwise I prefer to formulate ahead many meals at a time, so that, it takes a lesser amount of energy as well as saves huge valuable times, and it is not much time to busy the baby in other activities.
When I use cream chargers then I always try to keep the cartridges out of reach – they look too tempting to tiny eyes and fingers.
I think, White Vinegar as well as Baking Soda, these are the finest ordinary cleaners. I do not prefer to pay out on saleable cleaners which come in synthetic bottles, and these kinds of bottles are so much harmful for babies. I like to use glass bottles with cover to store dry meals, as an alternative of warping synthetic wraps on meal plate. I like to have packet meals in reusable pots or containers as an alternative of using synthetic bags; it’s safe for the child. Plastic dishes and paper dishes are just supplementary trash, washing dishware are a little disturbed but it is beneficial also!!!! I don’t misuse food, over freeze them and make a left all night while I heat up and little one part meals to have. Save money as well as time and also suitable for my child.
I prefer to have much more safety for my kid, do you?
My mate Cath has bitten the bullet, taken the plunge, stepped up to the mark and bought herself an X-Pole! Which is good for her and great for me – it means that whilst she gets to practice every day – I also get to take a spin when she is out at work.
She actually said i was welcome to use it whilst she was doing work, or watching TV in the evening – but I didn’t feel confident enough in my pole dancing skills to do this whilst she was in the same building – my pole dancer are not up to scrutiny yet – at least not unless both me and the audience have had a few drinks!!
But I have a key to her apparent which makes it easy for my to use the pole whenever I’m free in the 9-5 of things. The pole (X-Pole sport) is supposed to be easily portable but I think weighing in at a hefty 20kg that is something that is never going to happen!
Is it right for the Crazy Mon to play at being a stripper on her X-Pole – ask polesport.co.uk because they are the ones that inspired me when I had a go on one of their rental poles in the pub when I went to a bizarre mid-week hen night Read the rest of this entry »
I’m having a cream chargers foam party! Actually that is almost half-true! But take your eyes off the Ibiza foam party above because this is an entirely more wholesome flavour of foam made with whipped cream dispenser and nitrous chargers and a recipe I found at creamchargers.org.uk the idea is to create a culinary foam with the lighter than air cream charger.

And perhaps this is being a bit too decadent – but I am so very much looking forwards to the start of the soft-fruit season that I’m already tucking into the strawberries! I got the idea from www.joyofbaking.com to put the cream into rather tha onto the strawberries. It might be a subtle difference but it seams to add a touch of class to the whole preceding don’t you think? Read the rest of this entry »
At what point is it best to say – I’m doing this for myself? I’m not too insular in my existence but I do think that I can think. I’ve taught myself plenty of stuff including the difference between right and wrong so perhaps I can also find my way by navigating through the moral maze that is lying around me? This is possibly a bit edgy – but also very, very funny – and a true explanation of the power – or at least the power of the mass event … watch if you dare!
