My Diabetes Journey

Let me tell you something you don’t know about me. I am diabetic. I was diagnosed 2yrs ago. It’s a mixture of genetics – both my parents are diabetic – and part indiscipline. I’m here to tell you about my diabetic journey. When it started, I was just starting a healthy eating diet, ironic ba? Lol But you see before that diet I had set myself on a ‘suicide' course. I was drinking about 4 bottles of minerals daily. Eating…

LagosHouseWife - Daily Routine

My day to day routine

So what does the daily routine of a housewife look like? I have no idea. I can only speak for this lagoshousewife. Most days I wake up 4am. Not by choice, purely by commitment. I wake to talk with God, hear from Him and generally have Father-daughter time. Then I go online, check Instagram, facebook, pinterest, buzzfeed and flipboard for news and tatafo. At 6am, I get up to cook breakfast and pack school lunch and snacks for the kids.…

I've followed Supernatural from season 1. Cried when Prison Break ended with Scofield dying, and danced a tango when I heard they are bringing him back (please, don't mess it up) I was disappointed with how Good Wife ended; heartbroken to say goodbye to Jack Bauer etcetera etcetera. And…

The path to motherhood

The path to motherhood was not an easy one for me. It still isn't. For two years, I battled to conceive. Apart from one malfunctioning tube there was no reason I shouldn't conceive, but I just didn't. Actually when I wasn't trying to conceive, I did. Then I miscarried at 9weeks. After that we tried and tried but it just didn't happen. My husband was my human rock. If he ever doubted we would be parents, he never showed it.…

International Women’s Day

Today, I ask us to think - why is the world so threatened by women? Why is society so afraid of women that they don't want us to be great? Every race, every nation, every generation has sought to put the woman down. We are told not to dream, not to speak, not to have ambitions, not to think, not to improve ourselves, to be obedient, docile, stay in the background, to downplay our successes, to be underachievers,not to challenge…

It’s Official, I’m My Mother!

Example 1: My 3year old son is in the sitting room, watching Disney Junior. I'm in the room, lying on the bed. I call him. Me: Andrew, come. He comes running. Me: Bring my phone. It's there on the table. (I point to the drawer in the room) He checks. Can't find it. Me: Check very well. It's there. He looks round the table again. Still can't find it. Me: Go and bring Daddy's phone in the sitting room. He…
