So Long, Farewell, Hope to See You Soon...

What a wild three months it’s been.

Since we started this blog, I’ve written about everything from my daughter’s tantrums to celebrating Diwali in America to the Bombay terrorist attacks.

From my co-blogger Deepa, I’ve learned about everything from what lipstick to wear to how to channel our frustrations about working motherhood into constructive writing.

And from all of you, I’ve learned that we’re all trying our best to juggle the many balls in our life – kids, work, marriage, home, self – but that we could really use some help keeping them all up in the air.

It’s been a blast, Devis. This will be my last post at deviswithbabies. Thanks for reading, and do come see me at

Because Bombay is still on my mind, I leave you with a slideshow of the recovery efforts, and a video of A.R. Rehman’s powerful theme song to the 1995 Bollywood movie, Bombay. Sad to think that, 13 years later, the violence continues.

Thanks for 3 months of great writing, info, and entertainment. You guys really opened my eyes to a lot of new things (from dealing with a toddler, to looking great again after having a baby, and trying to instill some culture in our desi american lives). Im glad you will continue to write and look forward to your next blog. Thanks for entertaining me for 3 months. Sitting in front of a computer at work didn't seem half as bad.....though my boss might not be as thankful!
