Want to put a two-year old to sleep? Climb a bloody dangerous mountain with him on your back! . . Camping, Day 1: We like thrill, so we chose a mountain that no one seem to be climbing (we figure out why later). We also chose to skip the path made for humans to climb up. Instead we chose to make a b-line for the summit from what was a very rocky, slippery, steep and uneven plain. We nearly lost a dog as he slipped, then I slipped and Irene was in tears. Daddy put a brave face with three bags and two dogs but was pretty nervous about the rocks falling on us. . . The worst part was not knowing if what we can see as the top was really the top and what if the mountain top didn't have a solid path down, we'd be pretty screwed. There was no way we could all climb down alive the way we made it up. . . There were rescue teams chopper patrolling at the top of the mountains, which I was grateful for. I regretted the climb half way up the mountain but going further up or down held pretty much the same risk. So we kept on going. . . Once on top it was well worth it. It was so beautiful. We were knackered. But we rejoiced. And luckily found some fencing that led us down the easy way. So we could have gone up the easy way too but it wouldn't have been half as memorable as it is now. . . This climb was my most adventurous moment with my toddler so far. What's yours? . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #lakedistrict #camping #holiday #hiking

Happy Independence Day to all my Indian Folks! . . Independence day is slightly out of context for my children. I have educated them about our freedom fighters and their journey. How much of it they take in is slightly up to them at this stage. . . Being a minority in a foreign country feels like a fight everyday to us. So I don't worry about them taking their freedom for granted. But we do make the most of the freedom we already have nonetheless. . . We had the most incredible holiday experience camping at the lake District amongst the sheep, horses, cows, piggies, mountains and lakes. . . We stopped over at my mother in law's to break up our journey home. Can't wait to get home and share our camping experience with everyone. . . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #lakedistrict #camping #holiday #independenceday

"Freedom is the sense of being capable of actions motivated solely by love" - Rudolf Steiner . . This philosophy plays a very important role in how I want to raise Roshan. . . We are off camping for a few days with children and dogs. . . Follow us on our stories to join in the adventures (unless ofcourse we end up in an off - grid zone) . . Happy Holidays! . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #photography

Yesterday, RoRo got a thumbs up from the health visitor on his second annual check.I couldn't be proud of how well we faired on the system, not that we are looking for someone's approval. But an A+ is always welcome. . . Irene passed her grade 2 Violin test with distinction. . . And, Reuben's school uniform is now sorted for September. . . Our bathroom is finally getting a shower and a sink. . . So all in all a great start to the week I'd say. (Don't miss how big brotherly Reuben is being, using his hands to hide his little brothers modesty who remains perennially semi-naked) . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #beachlife #seaside

Everytime it's time to celebrate #breastfeeding, we are inundated with photos of infants and newborns breastfeeding and not so much of the toddlers . . The idea is to normalise breastfeeding not just during infancy but beyond. . . Why? Because my husband struggles with the idea himself. He supports me in what I want to do because it's my body. He will beat the shit out of a stranger passing rude comments but a part of him may also think , " well he is a bit big you know for this." . . I want to be real. The struggle of extended feeding is real especially when it starts at home. . . Everytime I feed him now, people see his size and not our combined need to carry on. . . Ofcourse he can get most of his nutrition from solids now and he is a pretty good eater. But breastfeeding at this age serves more than just for nutrition. It's for my sanity and his comfort. . . When I say I NEED to feed him for myself it is not because of some perverted intention. I do not like others looking at my boobs and no it doesn't turn me on. . . It helps put him to sleep without a fight, it helps ease his pain and aches, it distracts him from unfair play in the playground and takes away injustice done to him in seconds. A two year old may struggle to reason and sometimes boobs are an easier factor in any negotiation. . . It's hard raising babies you see, with the tantrums, frequent falls, demanding behaviours, lack of sleep etc etc if I can take a seat and feed him for things that would otherwise require me to make more effort to calm him down, why shouldn't I use it to my benefit. I mean what kind of teenager breastfeeds off his mother? So dont worry about them NEVER stopping. They stop! I did at 8 years! . . #worldbreastfeedingweek #worldbreastfeedingweek2018 #mbufeedingmoms

Summer holidays don't mean much to us #homeshooling families but there's something in the air anyway that makes it feel so joyous. . . Here Roshan is playing pretend tea shop and feeding his friend tea and cake, as you do. . . Today we went on a long swim in the pool with friends. RoRo is loving the water so much. A huge step forward for my only baby who is not a fan of the deep waters or of anything slightly risky. . . We then also went to play at a playground with friends. And because that wasn't enough, we brought all our friends to ours for some more play. . . Today was a good day. How was your Wednesday? . . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #beachlife

Buttered Tofu Cauliflower Tikka Masala (recipe in bio). . . I haven't done a recipe post for ages. I had to document this one because it was a huge success. . . @timesofamma cooked something similar for her aunt a few days ago and ever since I was craving for something similar. . . This recipe is a good way to use up the leftover kebabs from last night's BBQ. . . Let me know how it was if you try it. . . . #tikkamasala #curry #cashews #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #wearerealmoms #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #vegansofig #veganparenting #diwali #homeschooling #breastfeeding #makemotherhooddiverse #vegansofig

We have had the best weekend in a long time. . . Three birthday parties attended, all day everyday spent on the beach skinny dipping (for RoRo) in the deep waters, Ro's toy room plastered & painted and had a late evening beach BBQ watching the sun set, eating vegan tofu kebabs and drinking kombucha! . . Going to bed tonight feeling immensely grateful. Much needed rain has set in perfectly to wrap up the weekend. . . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #sunset #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #photography

We are absolutely loving our summers here. . . Holidays have started so the beaches are very crowded. Also a bit too hot to be on the beach in the afternoon. So we have been splashing in the paddling pool a lot with friends. . . Happy Holidays guys! . . . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #beachlife

To keep or not! . . As I am decluttering my summer wardrobe, I am coming across clothes I have never worn or hardly ever do. . . This is my very first Nigerian dress made in Nigeria, my friend brought for me. . . This dress has a sentimental value but it was rejected by all my babies including RoRo who said, "take it off, change mum" . . So guys, to keep or not? . . #fairtrade #momlife #momfashion #momfashionista #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #seaside #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #englishcoubtryside #fashionblogger #springootd #summerootd #instafashion

So this is happening. My friend's baby practically lives with us. . . Yesterday I took my children to a protest and came home with an extra baby. He didn't want to go home with his mummy. . . Today, he is back again for the day as his mum has a job to take care off. I have dogs walks and a work meeting too. I guess I have to have two assistants. Lucky they are cute. . . You can imagine the look on people's faces. How does she have one brown and one blonde baby? . . . . #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #pixel_kids #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #letchildrenbechildren #adventure #lafamilia #freerangekids #thebestineveryday # #magicofchildhood #instakids #instamum #beachlife #babywearing

This dress was brought ages ago and I never wore it. I forgot why until RoRo pulled it down! . . I am exploring dresses that are not #breastfeeding friendly as RoRo drops his feeds. I do wear leggings though, just in cases of emergencies like a fall or a stranger whose wave was objectionable leading to comfort feeding ofcourse. . . RoRo has also mastered the art of posing as can be seen. But this smile of his says, " I slept for 12 hours." . . . #fairtrade #momlife #momfashion #momfashionista #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #seaside #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #englishcoubtryside #fashionblogger #springootd #summerootd #instafashion

This time, 8 years ago, I laid my eyes on him for the first time. He is a Gemini and I am a Cancer. We are certainly not the match made in heaven. He is air and I am water. He has a silver tongue and I am too emotional. We beat odds to be together and we are still fighting odds. . . I have to admit that sometimes I stay just because of his good looks 😋 . . . #marriagequotes #marriage #relationshipgoals #momlife #momfashion #momfashionista #motherhoodrising #motherhood #motherhoodplugged #motherhoodtgroughinstagram #honestmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childofig #wildchild #mysimplemoments #dearestviewfinder #mumbaimoms #desimom #mummyblogger #veganparenting #dailyparenting #gooutsideandplay #letthembelittle #englishcoubtryside #fashionblogger
