I became a mother at 34. While I’ve always enjoyed being around children (still do) and voted the go-to baby-sitter of choice in the neighborhoods I lived in, it did not prepare me for parenthood. I try my best to be a good one, learning something new on an almost daily basis and today, I am blessed with a wonderful relationship with my now-teenage son.

I am so excited to share my first post over at Parentous, a new initiative by BlogAdda – the awesome guys who make my life happier by sending me books to review and now – this great blog on parenting, a place where, to quote them:

We want to curate all those experiences that go into making parenthood a fascinating experience and a roller coaster ride. We want parents to share everything that summarizes their journey – the surprises they plan, the surprises they receive, the moments while growing up, those funny yet insightful conversations, the joy of the ‘firsts’, the pain of losing a child, the empty nest syndrome that surrounds a home, the letters to future kids, the blog posts which shall be preserved as the 21st birthday gift – give them all to us and we shall share them with the world.  

I’ll be honored if you let me know what you think of the post! I hope to write there regularly.
