I've got designer bags
I've got designer bags under my eyes!
I'm so sorry for shirking my responsibilities as a blogger; my duty to furnish you with regular posts. It's just that it's a really busy month and then to top it up my sister came back with her brood and then almost immediately had to leave town for something, leaving me with a two month old and two little children! I'm at my wits end but what can I do? She returned last night but resumed work this morning so there's not much relief for me. I've barely had time to eat or bath much less blog. Like, I have no idea what's going on in the world at the moment.
At this point I doff my hat to all mummy bloggers, I don't know how y'all do it. Especially to you MFA of Lifetitudes (www.lifetitudes.com), who not only updates regularly but runs her own businesses and is a nursing momma! Bride2Mum and Lohla's Melange as well. Oh, and although I don't know Sisiyemmie I must applaud her to. I mean, how does she do it with the regular updates, the reviews, work, baby and a weekly Vlog? What is my excuse? LOL.
I've just put baby down to sleep and this is my opportunity to get some shut eye, at least before the other two wake up. Nonso is just 2 and is at that age where he's constantly throwing tantrums over nothing. Aaaaargh! Thankfully he and his brother are starting lessons today for four hours a day, so at least for those four hours their tutor takes them off my hands. Ope o!
Of course this also means that for now my life is being put on hold. My mum says she's done with omugwo and has returned back to her business, and since I don't have a 9 to 5 then I have to step in. I love playing mummy but while I'm not yet an actual mummy I would love to still enjoy the benefits of being single. For instance I wanted to travel on Friday but of course I couldn't. On Saturday my friend called and invited me to take the last flight out to attend the I Concur concert as they had a table. I really would have loved to but again, I couldn't. Yesterday I had a birthday party to attend but for where, na siddon look I dey!
I've told my sister she needs to get someone to help with the kids ASAP because I'm likely to be very busy from January. We talked about it and she said baby would have to join his brother in crèche. That made me quite sad but I think it's safer to put a baby in crèche than to leave him at home with a stranger. Please what do you think?
Another option would be to bring said stranger in, of course with solid references. What we're trying to decide if a young girl/lady would be good, or a mama (a matronly/older woman who's a mother or grandma) would be better? We're still try to decide but I would love to hear your thoughts and reasons. Thanks guys.
And thanks for sticking it out with me. God bless...
