I am Anamika Agnihotri, a Stay-At-Home-Mom of a 3 year old son, Dhruv. After having lived in UK for a while now I have shifted my base to Bangalore, India.
When I started out being a full-time mother precisely one and a half years ago after working in the corporate sector for 9 years I knew nothing about parenting or rearing a child. That coincided with the time I was trying to settle down in my new home in UK.
With a clean slate, I constantly made efforts at learning the tricks of this trade in what I fondly call ‘The Dhruv’s School of Parenting’ where although I used to start out being an instructor but humbly ended up following the pupil, my son.
Parenting is a tiring job and at times can tend to become daunting too. Over this period of time I have learnt some and am still exploring the fine nuisances of it.
On this journey, Dhruv and I have also discovered the love for books. Reading is something we both cherish.
This blog is an attempt to put together my parenting experiences and stories with an infusion of humour whereever I can.
I have also begun to pen down a memoir of our reading voyage on a weekly basis. It is about the simple stories Dhruv and I like to read about and capturing the silly and brainy interpretations we make of them.
