Who Why And What?!

Hey! I am Aswathy. Once a software engineer; Now a stay at home mom(SAHM) of an adorable little boy. I am a native of ‘God’s own country’, Kerala, India; currently residing in Gothenburg, Sweden. I love all things artsy and craftsy, travelling, spending time close to nature, and clicking pictures. My other hobbies include cooking, reading and writing.

WHY did I start the blog?

Being a SAHM is like being busy and bored altogether. You love to spend time with your child. Even so, you crave for some quality alone time. You are occupied with so many things, but your mind is idle at the same time.

As wise men say,

“Well, The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not. The cure for it is occupation because occupation means pre-occupation, and the pre-occupied person is neither happy nor unhappy, but simply alive and active. That is why it is necessary to happiness that one should be tired.”

-George Bernard Shaw

In a nutshell, an idle mind is a devil’s workshop. This got me thinking out of the ‘Parenting’ box to try something adventurous. Of course!! while staying inside the “House” box. I thought “why not start a blog! a public one at that!” The introvert in me already found it way out of the comfort zone and adventuresome.

And, that’s how I started this blog.

WHAT am I writing about?

Now that I have the skin in the game, the next question was “what can I write about?!” A difficult question indeed. Well, I am a mother. Maybe I can write about parenting… Or about my life…anecdotes…stories…dreams… Damn, this is harder than I thought. How about everything? huh! Everything about my life around my little boy… my little star!

And, that sums up the name too. That wasn’t so difficult after all.

Although I started the blog to escape the monotony, it has become more of a passion now. I share my parenting stories, the arts and crafts we do at home, reviews on books that my son loves, and a lot more here, on the blog. I hope it can help other parents out there to have fun with their little ones, and find joy in parenting.

Once again, Welcome to my blog! And, thank you for visiting this tiny space of mine. I hope you enjoy your stay here. Also, sign up with your email id to receive the latest posts and updates on parenting, kids activities, book reviews, and a lot more, before anyone else!
