royal-shoes

Welcome to my castle!

As I write this, my feisty daughter R is listening to the soundtrack of the movie Frozen.  Make that listening  to the full blast vocal stylings of the lead Anna as the character sings the lyrics of “For the first time in Forever”. R twirls with a hairbrush in hand (her make-believe microphone).  She is asking me to dance with her but I tell her Mom is busy.

Welcome to a typical day in my life.  I’ve been married  for fourteen years and  have  two children.  My ten year old look-alike son M is an incoming sixth grader.   He’s the biggest fan of Tony Stark (aka Ironman),  a Transformers enthusiast, a math wizard and as most big brothers are –his favorite hobby is making his two year old sister cry.  R is our little diva.   She entered her “terrible “ stage well before turning two and is still stuck in it at the present.  She is the resident drama princess in our home.

This blog will be about my family’s adventures and mishaps.  It will be about  parenting, travelling, shopping, cooking and dining. It will also be about shoes, clothes and the latest bargains/good finds in the metro.  My family has always loved music so I will be sharing some front row concert pictures with you as well . I will also write about home projects, how to plan the perfect children’s party (on a budget or in a grander scale), and how to encourage your kids to read.  I hope that you will find what I have to share interesting and useful.  Wait, did I mention shopping? Ahh, yes I did!

As a woman, I play many roles. I am a daughter, wife and mother. I am also a lawyer by education, a certified bookworm, teacher, storyteller, experienced party-planner, fashion stylist to the brood and a whole lot more.  I have embraced motherhood and all the fabulous things that have come with it.  Many roles,  many hats.  My favorite head apparel ,though, is my invisible glittery tiara.  I love everything that sparkles! This is why my blog is called The Busy Queen P.

Please allow me to be a part of your reading habit as I share (some parts of ) my life with you.

      My heartfelt thanks for this wonderful message GINA! No mom should ever be allowed to think she is just a “simple housewife.” There is power in being a woman and every woman should be treated like a queen :) I’m looking forward to more comments from you in the future. Ciao!
