Cheryl told me to feature on her blog months ago: “Emmanuel, kindly write a post for me for Fathers’ Day”. I kept playing with the request saaa, now the time is up for me to come up with the story. Readers, here we go. We had enjoyed life as a couple for over a year… Continue reading My Fatherhood Journey So Far
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.
Grandmothers: Our Nurses at Home
Grandmothers! Don't we just love them in this time when we make them grandmothers? But sometimes...just sometimes... See, if you have given birth in Ghana, you immediately know what I am talking about. At the time our mothers gave birth to us, there were stories. These stories were handed down to them by their mothers… Continue reading Grandmothers: Our Nurses at Home
I’m Coming to do My Blending
Remember I posted a similar picture a while back? Around that time was when blending was officially no more my job in my own house. If I dare blend without permission, trouble oh. Today, I called Asempa as usual to inform him. Me: Asempa, I'm about to blend oh. Asempa: Okaaaay! I'm going to play-ay!… Continue reading I’m Coming to do My Blending
How I Toilet-Trained My Toddler
Toilet-training! One of the most challenging milestones in the minds of mothers. I started reading about toilet-training early in the life of my first child and from most of the material I read, the average age that toddlers are ready to be toilet-trained is 18 months. Why 18 months? Well, by this time, most toddlers… Continue reading How I Toilet-Trained My Toddler
Happy 3rd Birthday, Asempa!
Wow! How are you three years already? How did time go by so quickly? How did I move from being excited about being pregnant with you to having a talkative three year old walking in my house. My Easter baby, Paschal. I will never forget how eager I was to bring you into this world.… Continue reading Happy 3rd Birthday, Asempa!
In Sickness and In Health
In sickness and in health. Yes, these are words very popular with marriage rather than kids. But you know what? When you decide to have a kid (or a kid decides to have you as a parent 🤭), you pretty much take the same vows. For most people, it's all about the "awww they are… Continue reading In Sickness and In Health
My Journey so far with my Picky Eater
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
Never A Dull Moment – Asempa – I
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
Sibling Love, Sibling Rivalry
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
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
