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'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
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
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.

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
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
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???
This is a part of a series of blog posts sharing my experiences as a young Ghanaian working mother. I looked for a Ghanaian voice as I walked this journey but barely found any so I have decided to share to begin a conversation among others in this beautiful journey. This is the fourth in… Continue reading Resources I Used During Pregnancy
Okay. It seems I created a wrong impression among my audience with my first post. So point of correction. This is not a story of the present. This is a story of a journey that began last year. My baby is now a big man. Lol. So, two days after that Sunday, we found our… Continue reading Antenatal Care
