March is really a full fledged revision month. In my kids’ Primary School life, I have never revised more intensively as now.

When it comes to travelling without the kids, I am not that cool. I have my guilty moments.

You can read about what I did over here.read more

As my kids grow up, I am gaining interesting experience by and by with each day. Someone told me the new teen years are between 10 to 21 years old. I prefer to refer the years of 8-12 as tween years when the kid is not so much a child anymore, yet not exactly qualify...read more
You would have thought that if my kids were read to every night when they were young, they would be avid readers when they grow up. I can tell you that in our family, we are living proof that this is a myth! When my little ones were one year old and fidgeting about, I...read more
