Stop Talking

Credit alert!  Your account has been credited with the sum of xxxx. I looked closely to see the name of the sender, it was from Bem, my husband! Wow! What happened? It wasn't my birthday or the kids'. Pardon my reaction, it's been a while my husband sent me money, this sum of money especially. That reminds me, I have also noticed some changes lately. Our spare room has been much tidier than ever, shoes in their rack, clothes either hung or neatly folded in the wardrobe, no litter on the floor, toilet clean, etc. Hmmmm...what could be going on? Is Bem cheating? Did another woman come into my home in my absence to do all that work? It doesn't stop there, Bem has changed in other ways too. He gets to do things swifter than before I don't get to talk so much before he gets things done around the house. The other day, I walked into the garage and noticed the whole place was lit.

By admin on Fri, 08/18/2017 - 09:00

Over the last 20 years, dozens of studies have confirmed what parents have known intuitively for a long time: Sitting down for a nightly dinner is good for the spirit, the brain, and the body. Research shows that shared meals are tied to many teenage behaviors that parents pray for: reduced rates of substance abuse, eating disorders and depression; and higher grade point averages and self-esteem. For young children, conversation at the table is a bigger vocabulary booster than reading aloud to them.

An Open Letter to Competitive Moms

By admin on Mon, 08/14/2017 - 15:00

Dear fellow moms,

Hope you all are doing well and your little ones are thriving too. I am writing to you all to let you know that I am withdrawing myself from the competitive parenting race. I quit, right at the starting point and would no longer be running the race with you.   I accept that I am a bit nervous for you all might judge me and my child for quitting, and what more might label us as losers too. But before you jump to it, would you please spare a few minutes to read this until the end? It's a tad bit long but then I wanted to make my point and had a lot to vent out!

Warning Signs Look out!

By akudo on Tue, 06/06/2017 - 00:00

It was a Friday evening in the month of May, after a very busy week, I was actually looking forward to sleeping off in hubby's arms while watching whatever he had for us to see that evening little did I know the day had its own plans.

I heard that sound as I drove off from the office but it sounded like a drag from the tires and not from  the car itself.  I wound up for a while for some AC, even though I am not such an Ac person and also  decided to try the Eko Hotel route home that evening. My colleague who took me home some days back took that route a few times and it seemed okay. As we approached the roundabout I heard that sound again, this time I wound down a bit to listen properly. I was convinced it was this big black jeep beside me and so I continued.
