November has been such a challenging month for me and my family. However, instead of focusing on the negative, I’d rather focus on the millions of little beautiful things that have happened to us this month.

Oh, and we are almost getting to December, meaning, Christmas, lost of food, fun and family parties. Now, that’s a good month. I can’t wait.KE-[E:Bf15:336x280]

In preparation for all this fun, Jumia (my favorite online shopping mall) has hundreds of amazing products on offer. The best part if that on Friday, 26th, Jumia will be hosting the sale event of the year.

Thousands of products will be on offer, for just one day, at discounted prices you will not believe. Imagine buying a 4-burner gas cooker at only 9,999, or a Nikon camera at the same price. Did I mention tablets starting at only 999?? Seriously!! Clothes and shoes at prices slashed by more than 75%.

To be honest with you, I have my eye on a few items and I am getting ready to shop till I drop, because these kinds of crazy discounts come only once in a year. I will be using this opportunity to get some of the Christmas gifts for my family-you should too.

Tomorrow is gonna be crazy, so better get ready now. The best part, Jumia delivers your products to your doorstep and you only pay after you have received your products.

Don’t say I didn’t tell you. This is the shopping event of the year, and it will only last for a day. That’s it. Don’t lose out my dears. Shop, shop, shop. Just click on the picture below and it will take you straight to where the goodies are.

Nightmares from Paris

Last night I woke at midnight, feeling hot all over, and sweating profusely. (Not the good kind of hot.)

I had a pretty gruesome nightmare. The kind where you wake up breathing hard and wondering what the hell is happening.

So, in my dream, I was taking a walk in my home town, enjoying myself when masked gunmen came up and started shooting people aimlessly. It was so scary. We ducked down and I think when it was too much for my head to handle, I woke up.

I know exactly why I had this dream. It was not a random thing. It did not come from the blues.

On Sunday, when we woke up to the new that crazy gunmen had shot people at different locations in France, I tried my best to mask the sinking feeling in my stomach. I really did not want to think about the horror that the people of Paris were facing that day.

One thing we need to point out, I like to bottle things deep down and never deal with them. Its the most unhealthy thing.

That is the reason am having weird/scary dreams.

That is absolutely not true.

The reason why am having scary dreams is because some mad people are going around the globe doing violent, horrible, terrible things and massacring people.

I hate it. I absolutely hate it and I think that these people are mad.

All I know is that we need God’s intervention. We need to love each other so much more and to pray for the world. I believe that this is the only way.

All in all, my prayers are with France.

The Days I Realize I am Truly a Mother

you are only humanThe last two weeks have been tough on me.

Over the past 8 months, I had a great nanny who was very good with my son, and was a very good fit for our family. I had slowly slipped to the comfort zone of depending on her and knowing that she was always there for us. So, when she left without notice, or even giving us time to find a new one; to say that I was in shock was an understatement.

Anyway, we have since recovered and are doing quite well, even without a nanny. Though am a little (very) exhausted by the end of the day, we are still surviving. Lowell is going to daycare and things are running more smoothly now.

Last Tuesday was particularly rough. I was exhausted at work on Monday and slept like a log. First, I woke up late. Second, the baby had caught a cold and he didn’t want to be woken up. I had to prepare his food, milk, porridge and everything else he needs for daycare, and it was a pretty rough morning. To make matters worse, we had a lot of work pending on short deadlines and had not left the keys to the office for the staff.

Phone calls were coming in left, right and center and things did not go as well as expected.

Usually, I shower first, daddy next, then we wake up the baby, give him his breakfast, then off we go. So, after taking a shower, I usually wear an old sometimes dirty and rather unpresentable t-shirt that I change after feeding the baby. As any mother would know, wearing your white shirt while feeding your baby porridge on a tense morning is not ideal.

The old t-shirt was not the problem on this Tuesday. In fact, I had worn a rather nice top, but it was DIRTY. The bigger problem was that I completely forgot to take it off, and change into my nice blouse that I had already ironed.

To cut the story short, I went to work on that fateful Tuesday, late, wearing a mismatched outfit, topped with a DIRTY t-shirt. True story.

Only such moments help you realize that you have truly become a mom.

NB: I did nothing to alter my look throughout that day, and my day turned out to be rather awesome.
