Some may argue that my attempts are futile as she cannot understand what I am saying. However does that stop parents from talking to their babies? Isn’t it from our talk, describing the world around them and constantly telling them who daddy and mummy is that our baby’s first words come from those s/he hears the most. We are already training our babies in so many areas: eating, using a car seat, table manners, talking, walking, biting is bad and so on.
I don’t know what to call the sleep training method my husband and I have been using since […]

When I moved to the U.S. in my late teens, I desperately wanted to change my accent. I wanted to fit in. I didn’t like my accent despite people telling me “I love your accent” several times. They often follow the compliment with “where are you originally from?”. That’s the question I didn’t like answering. I would have to tell them I am originally from Nigeria but I didn’t want to. That was the problem and motherhood solved the problem.
I, without thinking grabbed a dark brown crayon and started coloring the girl’s skin. Without skipping a beat, the little boy asked me why I would use that ugly brown color because my real skin was so nice and white. I didn’t know if I wanted to cry or hug him more in that moment.
I think a lot of moms have been in my shoes. Let’s be honest. There was a time you had to or there will be a time you will have to take your child to the bathroom while you do number 2…except you are Hollywood type of rich or have a 24/7 nanny, family assistance, and husband services.

The fact that the little one reaches out for me even when I discipline him convicts me of my natural tendency to treat people the way they treat me. It’s the silent treatment and creating a distance instead of having a healthy confrontation…

I have gotten to a point where I clean my phone and hand it over to him when the fight for my phone gets real. He thinks cell phones and everything belongs in the mouth. I am beginning to think he is the second in command after God in our home.
I will wage war for life, but I cannot justify trampling the wounded on the way to the battle. I must keep my heart at a place that I will stand for truth, but also be willing to run across the street for the broken carrying the weight of her choice. When I forget how to do both, then I fall into dangerous territory myself.
Do you feel like most days you are in survival mode? Do you long for a good nights sleep? A shower in silence? Or better yet, a nice hot bath… alone?
Three little girls were sitting on the bottom bleacher watching the basketball game. As we walked by, one girl stuck out her foot and tried to trip my daughter. She then stuck out her tongue and told my daughter that her hair was ugly…..
Alas! My husband and I have been suffering for no reason. The equipment needed to fix the problem was within our reach and it was available before ‘sharp nails’ problem manifested….
I think we as women, especially, tend to want to be all things to all people and do it all perfectly. But guess what, we can’t!
