Age 0-5 years are the most important phase in a child’s life and I, as a mother totally enjoyed bringing up my child, who is a 12 yr old boy today. Life felt absolutely exciting right from my pregnancy days.

I would sit hours together reading books, singing rhymes, chanting shlokas, painting and so much more. My husband would wonder why I am doing this. I read a lot of books on pregnancy and parenting, in United Kingdom in Darlington, there they gave us a beautiful book on pregnancy and baby care, which was very helpful.

The baby is always listening to you in the womb; it is a life growing inside you. Post delivery, the first two months I let go and didn't do much, but at the end of the 2nd month I started reading stories to my son, he would listen to it without fussing, I used to talk to him so much, I remember singing tables to him. I also remember doing a puppet show for him and he would push himself to crawl more. At 4-5 yrs he started reading on his own, which was wonderful.

I attended many Mother & child workshops with him in United Kingdom and United States, we would have fun sessions singing, dancing and playing with other kids and mums. The kids would crawl, jump, run, an absolute enjoyable session. I wondered if back home in India I could do something like this. But when I came to India he was already 3 and I didn't need such programs. I wanted to share the joy of motherhood and this inspired me to start a similar program in INDIA and I call it “MOMMYANDMEWITHSU”.

Mommyandmewithsu is a mother and child program, wherein a mother can come with her child and spend some quality time watching and playing with the child. We want every mother to enjoy her precious time with her child. All are working mum’s, therefore are busy whether at home or work, they and seldom find time to sit and narrate a story or even just watch her child explore. 0-2 years is a milestone in every child’s life and we want the mothers to come and explore and have a fun time at Mommyandmewithsu.
