Going Private!

June 4, 2008 at 8:52 pm 17 comments

Ok, so after much thought and deliberation, I decided that I’m going to password protect my posts.

Mainly, because there were 2 reasons I started writing this blog in the first place…

#1, from time to time, when I go back, it makes me smile to read about all the parenting I’ve done.

and #2, I wanted my children to come back and read all that I went through as a parent. The happy days, the sad days and all the days in between. I was hoping that through this blog, they would see me more as a person, and not just the mother who raised them.

After having given this much thought, I decided that our lives were too precious to put out there in public. The memories which we make, the hardships that we endure and the enlightenment that makes us better parents, is something I want to keep sacred for us.

Over these past 3 years I have gotten to know many of you, and consider it an honor to be in the company of such fine women (yes I am only talking about women here!). The other mommies, who made parenting more fun and more real! Every time I read your post I would be sitting there with a smile, thinking… oh yeah… I know what you’re talking about! The intellects, who provided me with brain stimulation when I felt I would never be capable of intelligent conversation! The funny ones, who I visit, JUST because your blog makes my day! And the creative ones, who serve as an inspiration for me to be more colorful in my own life.

Thank you for being a part of our journey, and getting to know my girls.

    much as i’ll miss your blog posts making my day, i can totally understand your reasons for wanting to take it private..

    its amazing how watching the girls virtually ‘grow up right before the eyes’ ive developed a fondness like one would for kids in the family!

    wishing you and the family best of luck always…stay in touch haan?

    Awww…I am really going to miss reading your posts which have always been something Ive been able to relate to and learn from, as a mother myself I totally can understand why ur going private and its funny how it took me all these years to come out of my own fears and anonymously set up a blog only to have some of the people i read leave! anyways wish u all the best in ur private blog writings which ur girls are so gonna adore when they read it and maybe il still get the I/E-man’s to meet if u ever come over or vice versa?

    I must say I would love to have an in-depth conversation with you about the reasons that made you come to your decision, but I echo everyone else’s statements about how wonderful it’s been to read your blog.

    I guess this just means we’ll have to make a firmer effort to keep in touch in other ways.

    Isn’t this bad that I happened to visit your blog for the first time on the day you took decision to go private….it is always good to know and read about Pakistan….especially because I still feel we Indians and Pakistanis are nothing but sufferers of a cruel fate…we have so much in common and it will always be good to forge bonds across the border as we one in every way but that cruel line!
