Well, about me I can say that I am a certified dentist, healthcare analyst, medical writer and above all a mother of a 6-year-old. Most of my day to day activities revolve around her and she is my inspiration to start this blog. As a mother, I experimented with a lot of new things for my little one in a quest to find the best for her. I just want to share my experiences of being a happy and content mum.

    Oh this was fun. I remember my children enjoying Nate the Great books – they were part of their syllabus in kindergarten. And I prefer real books too even though I have a kindle and like it for ease of usage.
