When you have kids, trying to achieve what you used to be able to do is nearly impossible. You have to change your mindset and let go of certain things and change your standard quite a bit.
Being bored with a kid is impossible. Every day is a new adventure. Yesterday he didn’t sleep through the night, last night he did. Go figure. Looks like it’s impossible to know when he will sleep. Maybe he’s just slowly transitioning. Today he’s been a bit grumpy. I think his teeth are bothering him. It looks like all the four top teeth are coming out at the same time. Poor baby. Tylenol… Read More

When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on–series polygamy–until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are…
Sometimes, when you least expect it, things happen in your favour.
Today was quite challenging mentally for me. Of course, being tired doesn’t help. My son decided that he doesn’t want to sleep from 2 am to 4:15 am. And over that, he’s fighting his naps during the day. He has been doing this for the past week or so. Sometimes I wish he could tell me what’s going on. Perhaps it’s teething, maybe it’s a stomach ache, or possibly just because he… Read More
Dear leaf blower guy… Did you know that after the rain, blowing the leaves will take double the time? Did you know that some people are trying to have their kids down for a nap? Did you know some people need their full concentration to work? We live in a townhouse complex, and the maintenance guys always come once a week to cut the grass, take away the leaves that fell, but… Read More
Having a baby is difficult enough, but never in the world I would have thought of raising a child during a pandemic… It is just making it even more difficult… If we could pause the newborn stage until this mess is over it would be fine, but now that my little guy is 7 months old, introducing the world to him is very difficult… His growing needs to explore is making things… Read More
Hi everyone, I know it’s been ages I haven’t posted on my blog. Things have changed a lot in my life in the past year. From being indecisive about having kids, we finally came to a decision to take the plunge and start our little family. You may wonder why out of a sudden things changed? Well… Back at the end of 2018, working with other women who have kids made me… Read More
Sometimes darkness suddenly invades my thoughts and I don’t know why. I fight with my thoughts to change my way of thinking trying to be positive. Sometimes with no success or it’s just temporary. Having expectations can sometimes hurt you. Sometimes, an event that didn’t work as you planned happens, the voice in your head starts to tell you negative things and it’s not really what’s happening… It triggered something deep down… Read More
Murders, kidnappings, bombings… Learning about the atrocities that happen around us every day makes me wonder where this world’s going… Last Friday, a 14-year-old got killed in a park a few blocks away from our house. We often go by that area on our runs. This is scary… Living in the uncertainty for our safety is not what I had imagined for the future. It seems like the more the years go… Read More
Many years of my life we wasted from trying to make everyone around me happy. The fact is, it is not possible to make everybody happy. There will always be someone that won’t be. Year after year, it’s the same. As the years go by, it becomes a burden and you become unhappy because you put everyone else first and you always think of what others will think of you. The truth… Read More
