Double trouble double fun a supermom's guide to raising twins

Buy the book here

Welcome to the world of thinking-on-the-feet parenting. A world where questions are answered and answers are questioned, where one day segues into another without a warning sign and where intense exhaustion co-exists with blissful happiness—the true signs of parenting. 
Double Trouble, Double Fun is Riti Prasad's hilarious, realistic and tell-all chronicle of raising twins during their early childhood. She delivers an irreverent insider's account of parenting through a decade that has seen the best and the worst of parenting theories, the boom of internet moms, the battle between working and stay-at-home moms, as well as other parenting after-shocks. 
In her thought-provoking memoir, she questions accepted parenting norms and expectations, struggles to come to terms with the ever-expanding scope of motherhood and races against time to fulfil them. 
Sifting through memories of her parenting tactics and theories, Riti delivers a power-packed punch of a book that negotiates through challenges of pregnancy and parenting, pearls of wisdom, nuggets of humour, screams of frustration, sighs of exasperation and tears of joy and disappointment in equal measures. 
Written through the lens of a career-invested, borderline-workaholic and delegation-savvy mom, this book shares a parenting journey navigating through poopy diapers, potty training, balanced diets, tiring holidays, PTA meetings and workplace triumphs and disappointments.

History Repeats

A lifetime ago a girl couldn't let go of her 15 puzzle. She had both the one with numbers and another one with alphabets. She carried it with her e everywhere she went. She kept solving the patterns over and over again. It was an obsession, a challenge and a pastime. Even in her sleep she saw the patterns.
Little did she know that a lifetime later, her son would do the same. Wake up to it and sleep over it. Speak about it and challenge himself to solve the grid in the shortest possible time.
Can't say she is not pleased with what she has made.
Wish they made alphabet puzzle like they used to.
