The weekend was beautiful. God blessed us with rain and I am so grateful.

It has been a bit cold over the past few days but I appreciate the change in weather.

Am optimistic about this week. Am hopeful that doors are opening, opportunities blossoming for me and mine. Am thankful for being alive to live through this week. Am happy and I hope you are too.

Some of the things I want to accomplish this week include

1. Organize my computer.

Oh Lord, how I love an organized laptop. However, am always tempted to save everything on the desktop. All the projects am working on right now require some organization. I need to arrange things in such a way that I can access them as fast as possible. Am hoping to get this done bit by bit throughout the week.

2. Laughter

Definitely. I want to inject some more laughter into my life. After all, laughter is the best medicine.

3. List more.

I love making lists. Lists make things so much easier. I feel so much better when at the end of the day, I see everything crossed off my list for the day. It feels exhilarating. I love the feeling and I ought to feel that way more often.  Listing things helps me remember ideas and save them for later. I use the note taking app on my phone to make lists.

Have a great week my friends.

A House Full of Boys

ImageI come from a family of five..Me, 1 sister, 1 brother, mama n papa. This translates to 3 girls as compared to 3 boys in the house. Considering that women run the house, we ruled our household. We made all the decisions on what to cook, when to do laundry, which places to visit, favorite restaurants etc…

To add on to this, all my cousins have given birth to girls as their first children meaning that my side of the family is filled with girls.

When I discovered I was pregnant, me and hubby almost instantly started thinking of a girl. We wanted to name her after my mother in law. We even started calling her by her name. 30 weeks into the pregnancy, I went in for a gender scan and I was surprised to discover I was carrying a healthy boy. I was surprised but happy.

I don’t know what turned the wheels, but that scan really made me excited. I was immediately in love with my boy. The ‘she’ that we had used all along turned into a ‘he’. We soon had a beautiful name and I started buying boy clothes. Knowing how much hubby and his mama were close, I knew that I was so blessed. They say that a bond between a son and a mother is pretty strong.

Fast forward 4.5 months since he was born and I am so in love.

My life has changed from one ruled by girls to a house full of boys. At least in my house there are two boys against one girl (me).

Am a little scared of course, because they love each other so much. Its still a little early but I can tell that football rules in this house. Action movies are also popular around here. Lowell laughs when his daddy is watching action movies. I think he loves the crazy sounds.

I love my boys so much. It tickles my heart to see father and son so happy together. I can only hope that a girl will join me in future.

For now, it is just a house full of boys.
