So if I’m really busy, I can’t hear the rickshaws outside. Don’t get me wrong, I love rickshaws, my kids cry if we call for the Uber cars instead of the Uber rickshaws. They consider the trips pure fun. I’m not talking about the rickshaws actually. This is all about stark contrast. Despite the age… Continue reading A Pakistani Illusion
It was a lot of fun blogging early in the morning while my children slept. I enjoyed the silence and felt like I was getting somewhere. Rest can be a priority. Does that make sense? I need to give to myself before I can give to anyone else. If I haven’t slept enough, the broken… Continue reading Priorities
More often than I’d like, I’ve been too tired and overwhelmed to do anything beyond the basics with my children. Writing, spelling, grammar, math, Quran, some Arabic and basic Islamic studies.

I homeschool 3 of my children. I spend all day with them, morning till night, everyday. We do math and reading, spelling, grammar and science. We even explore together. But I don’t play. I don’t sit and enjoy the sound of their laughter or run and play tag. We don’t play boardgames often enough. My… Continue reading Do you play enough?
