Ayemye and food! Oh my. The relationship is...let's just say, the love is not deep. Lol. Let me take a few steps back to when I was about to introduce Asempa to solid food. Most materials that I read prior to when he turned six months placed so much emphasis on how challenging it will… Continue reading My Journey so far with my Picky Eater
A while ago, I saw a tweet that went something like, "My kids had better be funny. I can't spend the rest of life at home with them if they are boring." When I saw the tweet, I smiled. I smiled because, with kids, there is never a dull moment. They arrive as newborns who… Continue reading Never A Dull Moment – Asempa – I
When I got to know I was having a second baby, one of the things I wondered about the most was how the boys will relate with each other, especially considering that they were so close in age. By the time my bump was big enough for Asempa to notice (6 months preggo), he was… Continue reading Sibling Love, Sibling Rivalry
After all that I have done for you. That statement! We all heard it at one point or another in our lives. For me, I would usually roll my eyes after hearing it because I felt, ahe ah. What's the big deal? Now that I am a mother, I see the BIG DEAL! Oh,… Continue reading After all that I have done for You
Asempa, let me wash your hands for you. I'll wash it myself (Walking together) Asempa, let me hold your hand No! (Blending my stuff in the kitchen) Mama, Nooooo! I'll do it! (About to wear left shoe on right leg) Asempa, it's not like that No, it's like that! As if all the above are… Continue reading I’ll Do it Myself

When you finally decided to come, you took your time and came in the evening. When you were finally out,… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Theodore
All my life, the picture that has been painted around me has been a tiring pregnancy, a PAINFUL labour and a happily ever after with the new baby. It was like labour and delivery brought an end to it all. I was SHOCKED that it was just the beginning. Sigh. I realised very quickly that… Continue reading Postpartum : When Baby is finally Here
I know in my last post where I talked about my labour and delivery experience, I promised that my next post will be about my postpartum experience. However, I realised I'm tired of calling my kids Number 1 and Number 2. I mean for how long? 😂😂😂. I decided that instead of just switching to… Continue reading Meet the Appiahs
Labour pains. We've all heard about it. It's probably the most talked-about pain in the world and many believe there's no other pain that can be compared to it. Two babies later, what is my judgement? Well, let's talk about my experience first. I had almost the same experience with both babies... let's say they… Continue reading Am I in Labour???
Number 2! Growing up, I always thought parents sit down to carefully plan how they want their kids spaced and their body responds to this plan. Ha! I now know that only one thing makes babies so you can't be "walking" that path and think a baby can't be made. Did I say growing up… Continue reading Yes, Mummy! You are pregnant.
