It's exactly a week I started blogging and so far it's been exciting. I have gotten so much blog views that's unbelievable to achieve under a week, thanks to all of you who made it possible and also gotten wonderful and encouraging comments on all posts, I can't thank CG,sweet dee, Miss Chrissy, Tee hills, Adefunke and all the anonymous commenters enough ...lol.
We all know most Naija parents are all struggling financially, the economy isn't so much favorable currently. Whilst many are having it all rosy and easy going financially many are still on the average in earnings. I'm a working mother so is my husband, the love we have for our kids has made us to sacrifice a lot personally and cut cost on personal needs just to make them not lack in any area of their lifes as we did while growing up.

It happened a friend of mine lost a 17week old pregnancy and only told me the tragic news today while I was at work. I promised to check on her unfailingly today to console and encourage her been that i've been there and I sure know how painfully it is. I'll narrate my ordeal on my miscarriage on a stand alone post.
Postpartum Depression is a very misunderstood & common thing that many moms go through to one degree or another. I'm currently on the tail end (so it seems) of suffering from Postpartum Depression and have been suffering from it since Lindsey was about 9 months old -- I didn't realize it could start that late! It is a really challenging thing to go through.

I had a terrible panic attack today or is it karma i'd call it? I am yet to recover fully from the shock as I type. Ok, let me gist you guys what happened today. My last baby didn't go to school today, she is on observation after a breakdown from flu a couple of days ago. My vehicle broke down last night as well and my In-law lent me his spare vehicle to run around while mine was in for repairs.
There is nothing as heartbreaking as an unplanned pregnancy from a failed family planning method. It took me me about five months to come to terms with my third pregnancy, how could the trusted shot my Dr give me fail me woefully? He assured me I was covered for 3months only for me to take in the following month. At first I didn't want to to come to terms with the reality I was pregnant but the pregnancy home test kit was looking at me in two bright red lines which means positive.

When it comes to the issue of employing house maids i'm scared stiff, ah! I don tire for dia wahala! The first ever maid I employed prior to my first delivery claimed to be 23years old. Blessing started off quite well the first few weeks but I started noticing changes after I put to birth, her job description was basically cleaning the house and nothing more. She doesn't cook nor do my laundry, she doesn't even look after my little baby.
The challenge of been a mom doubles when the kids are all home from school, as easy it sounds getting Josh, Esther and Lydia to take a shower and change into their house clothes doesn't ever happen so easily. My mother-In-law would always say it's only a phase and it'll pass...Gosh! I can't wait, like seriously.

As a working mom to four kids in Nigeria which is a developing country in Africa is a tough challenge, with no domestic staff to assist with chores within the house i'm left with no other choice but to wake up way earlier than the rest of the family members to make sure breakfast is ready, lunch is packed and ensuring everyone especially the kids are prepared for school Before 7am.
Thank you fathers for providing for us, protecting us and risking your lives day and night to make sure we are happy. God bless all real father's out there.
