This is my first time ever. Blogging, that is. Why’d I start? Being a stay at home mom to two little boys is great but my kids aren’t the best conversationalists. There’s only so many times I can hear that I’m the worst mom in the world. I’m married to the nicest guy ever, who has always been encouraging me in my endeavors.
I used to write regularly, in a journal or diary, before time to myself became a luxury I couldn’t afford. Now, with my own laptop and much less self doubt, I figured I could give opinionated information to the netting world on topics that sorely need first hand experience info sharing. I should also act before my vocabulary goes to hell, I start referring to myself in the third person, and I can’t speak in much more than pronouns. If nothing else, this blog will get my the wheels of my creativity turning. I figure if it doesn’t work out, there’s always the delete button.
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce my sisters and co-bloggers, Sumayya and Fatima. They’d prefer to go by Sumi and Fati. I don’t like to be called Sheemi. We are three Indian American sisters living in Chicago (Fati, me) and Dallas (Sumi). Sumi is the sweetest nurse you’ll ever meet who’s a mom to the most adorable nephew on the planet. Fati is a very independent senior in college. She’s majoring in business and finance, has a full load of college classes, and still manages to look super chic ninety nine percent of the time. Since their schedules are busier than mine, I will be the main blogger, but you’ll get their input often as well.
This blog is going to move slow, since I have no idea what I’m doing and it’ll take a while for my audience and writing skills to grow. Unfortunately over the past few years, my language has accumulated some not so nice words that I’ll try to keep the usage of to a minimum. Sometimes, though, that’s the only way to get the point across 🙂
