Calling All Moms
If you are a Mom...
Has this ever happened to You?
You have had a hard day as a Mom and all you want is to have someone patiently hear you without judging you -- come be a part of us and rant
You want to discuss about your kids education, play, achievements, next project or maybe plan a birthday party or a play date -- come share with us.
You are a Mom who has hit that amazing routine that soothes the baby and makes her sleep in 15 minutes flat -- before you apply for a patent come teach us
You are ready to go back to work or maybe taking a break from work to stay at home and you want to talk it out -- come let’s talk
You have ideas, plans, anecdotes about yourself the kids, the neighbours kids -- come tell us
You have concerns, worries, issues and you think more Moms should hear you -- come discuss with us
Come join The Desi Momz Club
This is going to be your blog, the Mom's blog, for The Mom, Of The Mom, By The Mom
It’s you who is going to post and help others out if necessary. It’s a place where we all Moms meet at our own time and still have fun
Why This Blog ?
I have a 3 yr old and as a Mom that's my age too. As my daughter grows there have been questions and more questions. I have spent a considerable time Googling and asking around. I have also spent (and still do) discussing various aspects of my daughter's growing up with my friends. Numerous questions always -- Gymboree or MyGym ? Puzzles or Books ? Should I feed or let her eat on her own? Am I right if I get stressed out and scream sometimes or do I clench my fist and mix honey in my speech?
When my daughter first started day care last year I was so worried that I would call up my very dear friend N and giver her hourly updates about my daughters status and my emotional status, seems funny in retrospect, but yes that was what I did.
I am sure many of you have gone through similar situations and looked around and bonded with others going through the same
As I look around in the Blogosphere and I see Asha whose daughter T has achieved laurels in school , I think it would be really nice if we get to know from Asha how she nurtured her daughter.
When SJ says , she finds fairy tales have changed a lot since she was a child– I think that's exactly what I have felt all this time.
As Indo's daughter DD makes beautiful clay artifacts – I feel maybe Indo could give us tips as how she mnages work, blog and also teaches her daughter such skills.
When @ says about Kodi's baby talk – I smile by myself and the day looks brighter.
When I see Trupti managing two adorable cuties and taking them to several activities -- I think it would be great to know how she keeps them active
When Vani shares about little M and her daycare -- I think that can help other Moms with little babies
When Maheshwari, Swapna, Vini, Padmaja, Sailaja, Sunita, Sharmi, Hema, Linda, Shaheen, Manisha, Sri, Shilpa(Flog&Rosbif) and all other Moms whom I have known through their food blogs and all those whom I am yet to know could all come and share I think it would be a great place for all of us.
There are many more of you who are bringing up your kids beautifully and I feel it would do us all good if we could all come and share and talk. You need not have a blog, you can just come and join us.
I bounced off my idea with IndoSunGod of DailyMusings and Asha of FoodiesHope and Aroma, two very experienced Moms and they were kind enough to come and join as administrators
Since we can't meet at a Coffee Place and chat let’s have a virtual place of our own and we meet up at our own time, maybe sipping that chai or coffee...
Why The Desi Momz Club ?
I felt that a common background would help us bond better. There are many Mommy sites but I wanted to have one where at least we all share the same roots. But even if you are not Desi aka Indian, it’s good enough if you are an Indian at heart.
