How am I even a mother of 3? Aren't I still a child? 😆 Last September, we welcomed a baby girl to the family! I've had people say, oh, the girl you were longing for...was that really the case? Well, no and yes. In that order. Wanna know more? I have a story for you,… Continue reading And then there were 3!
Posts sharing my experiences as a young Ghanaian mother. I looked for a Ghanaian voice as I began to walk this journey of motherhood but barely found any so I have decided to share so as to begin a conversation among others in this beautiful journey.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Theodore
My dear Theodore, Happy birthday! I know you would read this one day. I don't think I doubt it. Or do I? This year has been quite the year. Two years ago, I had no idea. Last year, I was just getting used to it. But this year...we've walked through and come this far. From… Continue reading Happy 3rd Birthday, Theodore
New Things are Mine!
Asempa and new things! He literally lives for them and believes every new thing no matter how small or big is his. He comes from school one afternoon, sees a new bag we've bought for my Ayemye because Ayemye's bag is torn and concludes the bag is his. We told him it was for his… Continue reading New Things are Mine!
Toddler Love and Appreciation
Last week, I did something for Asempa and he said his usual "Thank you, Mummy," and then added, "You're my hero!" In that moment, I felt like all my worries and stresses of life were over. That become the standard format of appreciation for the rest of the week and it never ceased to have… Continue reading Toddler Love and Appreciation
I want to see the sad
On our good nights, we read our children's Bible right before sleeping. When we started, I'll read every word of one Bible story. With time, I realised Asempa prefers to listen to several stories rather than one story so he'll interrupt while I'm reading and want to pick a new story. I decided from that… Continue reading I want to see the sad
How I Weaned my Toddlers off Breast Milk
Breastfeeding was a big thing for me when I gave birth to my boys. Once I read that breastmilk is the best source of nutrition for the first six months of life, I was committed to do my best to breastfeed exclusively during that period. I almost hit the six month mark for both of… Continue reading How I Weaned my Toddlers off Breast Milk
He held my hand when he was ready
I'm the kind of mother who believes in allowing our kids to be ready for something without "forcing" them. You may have noticed this when I talked about how I toilet-trained my first born. Now, this isn't something that started when I became a mother. I have had it in me for the longest time.… Continue reading He held my hand when he was ready
Marry your Best Friend
Marry your Best friend. Cliché right? But 5 years of marriage and 3 and a half years of parenting later, I realise it's not just something that's said for saying sake. There's so much truth in it. I'll tell you why. See, marriage is not exactly a new life. Life is life. The only difference… Continue reading Marry your Best Friend
Motherhood…A Looong Journey
A few months ago, my kids were taking a nap and I got to work doing the thousand and one things that I cannot do while they are awake and all over the place. I asked myself what happened to sleep when baby sleeps? It got me thinking... Wasn't it just yesterday that I was… Continue reading Motherhood…A Looong Journey
Even before I had kids, I knew I wanted them to shine in home management. Considering the fact that I initially said I wanted four boys, it means I do want boys who can equally take care of the house as much as girls are usually known to. Note that I wrote "initially" there. Two… Continue reading Frying Pancakes
