Love actually

As parents we love our children unconditionally ( at least I prefer to think of it that way). What about the kids? Is their love conditional?  Find out what Rianna feels .....

The Blame Game

Madsie is sorry that she was in hibernation for so long .....
Ricky and Rianna are growing up too fast - and of course they have learnt to blame each other when questioned about any mishap ( and there have been LOTS of mishaps lately)

Here is the latest drama ...

Sometimes Rianna does not understand that parents can see through fibs too :)

Should Mommy go out to work?

Rianna has definite views about whether Mommy should go out to work or not. However she IS allowed to change her mind - isn't she?

Little girls at play

Madsie is an adult now and has clearly forgotten how lil girls play. Shame on her for trying to moderate Rianna's playtime with her friend

Random thoughts

I have been kind of lazy in creating cartoons these few days... (Not for the lack of material though)
Lots of stuff going on . I promise to be less lazy going forward ( Fingers crossed)

Yet another excuse

Ricky has an unending supply of excuses... Looks like he can churn them out on demand. Keep them coming Ricky ......

The little shopper

Rianna is practising for the future !!! She is trying out her persuasive powers on Singho.

She tried to take him out for shopping. Did she succeed? That gentle reader is for you to find out .......

More excuses ....

As I mentioned earlier - Ricky hates writing ( I mean there are so many other things that he would be rather doing) . So he is an expert at churning out excuses for not writing. Let us just say that some of them sound kind of ridiculous and go a long way towards raising Singho's Blood Pressure.

Weighty issues

Once we reach our thirties , the excesses of our past catch up with us. Madsie is no exception. She has weight issues and so do many other women she knows. However a certain female has a DIFFERENT weight issue

Rianna's poetic efforts

It sure looks like Rianna is trying to be a poetess. She bestows on Singho the great honour of being her first critic .....

Any excuse to not write

As I said before - Ricky is an avid reader ( reads everything - even the daily newspaper) - whether he understands everything he reads is something up for discussion. He is also extremely lazy and will try to use any excuse to not write.

Creating Cartoon strips

My latest hobby is creating cartoon strips.
I have made about 16 strips so far - mainly about the kids, family life and friends. I will keep posting them here from time to time. Do let me know what you think of them.


I suppose I should start by introducing myself. I am Madsie - mother of 2 kids aged 7 and 3. ( and the wife of a husband and the only daughter of my parents etc ,etc, etc).

I love to read books , write and sometimes dabble in poetry (The said dabbling was more frequent when I was a teenager - which was lightyears ago). I have recently started experimenting with "cartoon strips" - lets see how long I remain interested.

I also like to experiment with cooking ( though perhaps I dont enjoy cooking everyday ). I love listening to good music too. What I enjoy most these days is spending quality time with my kids ( a 7 year old boy and a 3 year old girl). I love teaching them stuff and "doing craft". "Doing craft" almost always involves one or more of the following - paper strips, scissors, glue, brush, water, paint, play dough ; results in a huge mess afterwards but leaves two very happy kids and one happy mother .

I also hold a day job. I work in a large company and help test "networking equipment". In short I am a Software Engineer.
