Welcome to my parenthood Blog!

Once upon a time there was a girl who doesn't do the dishes, clean the house, let alone looking after a baby! The simplest stuff in the eyes of most women out there was her absolute nightmare. She couldn't imagine being a housewife in her wildest dreams. But somehow, after being a parent for a year, this has transformed her incredibly.

You won't be able to find any fairytales here, but brutally honest advice and stories about being a real mommy in the society. It is a lonely process yet oh so fruitful.

Welcome to my blog and welcome to parenthood!
