About Me/Contact/Work with Me
My names Harps Kaur and I’m a mummy to two – my precious little toddler, Arjun, and my little superstar homie with an extra chromie, Saajan. I’ve been married to Preetam for five years and we live in London.
I started my blog when Arjun was 25 weeks old/almost 6 months.
I share my real life experiences with my readers, including the highs and lows of motherhood for me and my journey through PND and pregnancy post PND. I journal our travel adventures and often share both weaning and non baby related recipes – I have an Instagram page dedicated to the mini vegetarian meals I create for Arjun. I’ve also become known for my party planning skills – it’s definitely my forte! I loved planning Arjun’s jungle themed first birthday bash and equally loved planning his construction themed second birthday! I sometimes delve in to the world of beauty to mask the evidence of sleepless nights!
Our second son was born with his surprise diagnosis of Down Syndrome. To say it’s been an easy ride emotionally would be a lie – once we’d overcome the initial shock of his diagnosis, we also had to embark on our journey through seeing our little soldier endure open heart surgery. Two life events that we never ever imagined we’d be facing!
Despite having a rocky start to 2017, we are embracing and enjoying life to it’s absolute fullest! Through Saajan we have learnt so much about life and so much about Down Syndrome – it really isn’t the end of the world at all like we’d first thought!
My blog was crowned the Best Pre School Blog in the MAD Blog Awards 2016.
