The first few posts started getting shared a lot. Everyone related with it,” Poonam told us. Read on for the full interview.
Poonam told us that their IG account doesn’t have a mission as such, however, they do want to make as many people smile every week with “as many happy updates as possible.”

“I guess it touches a chord because it comes straight from the heart,” Poonam said about why her content is so relatable. “My son and I try our best to keep the content simple, relatable and light—as it is 2020 is tough on everyone. I am keen on making the youngsters see things from the parents’ perspective and vice versa.”
