Being a single parent...

No, no! its not what you think! M and I are still together, working our way through a messy period of marriage. Things are better, but we have a long way to go - but that's a whole different post altogether.

I have been MIA for how long now? too long to remember actually. My stupid laptop keyboard broke down and I had no time to get it repaired. And then I went away to delhi for 3 glorious weeks (did nothing but laze around - bliss!) Came back and it was the festive season. I continued to follow your blogs but obviously could not comment due to my stupid keyboard. I am at an internet cafe right now so catching up. (Note to elf: get your keyboard repaired asap)

Now back to being a single parent. M has taken this 45 day Aiyyappa Diksha. He comes at 7am  and leaves at 930 am, just 2 and a half hours each day! That more or less makes me a single mom yeah? its just been 4 days. 41 days to go. wish me luck girls.

Danny turned 2 last month. He is just awesome. my skinny bubba. He talks, man does he talk. He is already talking in 6-7 word sentences in 4 different languages. he knows 3-4 rhymes. But cannot recognize any colour, I wonder whats up? He can count 1-10 (not always in order though).

Okay this got to do for now.

I leave you with some pics.

This is so weird: I literally texted Esperanza tonight wondering why you hadn't posted in a while, and then I went here and saw this post! I am so happy you're back!!

I'm doing the single parenting thing a lot too as Darcy has been traveling for work 2 out of the last 3 weeks. It's hard.

Seriously, I am so so thrilled to see you here again :) We've missed you.

Hi Chandi,

Mixed marriages have their ups and downs. I should know right? 12 years of bickering, swearing to leave, questioning my self esteem, etc etc, has still kept me going. But at least I can say I have a cosmopolitan marriage!! hahaha!

Your son is beautiful...muuuah!

Reg: single motherhood, ask a whole lots of women and they will all say, even if he is around, most of the parenting is done by the woman!!

Such is the nature of things. Tatastu!

Belated Happy Birthday, Danny!

Haven't you tried the Cadbury's Gems torture on him yet? You know, where the kid can't eat the chocolate till he tells what colour it is.

Anyways, I hope you and M will successfully overcome any issues.

Glad you are back!

Love you Danny boy and your mummy. Glad you had a happy birthday. Chhandy, I hope during this time of M's Diksha you are getting some good insight yourself. I envy him going to the Diksha as I just completed mine. Maybe when he is finished it will be your turn for some "alone" time to get you centered.

I love you all and let's speak soon!

Great pictures! I am currently also a single mother due to my DH's work right now. It is tough but we all survive.

Hope you get your keyboard fixed soon!

Happy ICLW #21-Donor Diva

Hi from ICLW!

The little ones are so adorable!

I understand the part time single parenting, it is tough but makes you appreciate the husband so much when he is home!
