Remember how it started?

It still catches me by surprise that you found us worthy of being part of the generation that will live to tell the unadulterated tale of your time.

Remember how it started? It was fear at first sight (or is it hearing?). And rightfully so because ours was a troubled house. Locusts were upon us and doctors and nurses had on and off strikes and go-slows- a clear indicator that the healthcare system was barely afloat. Nonetheless, you found your way here and have surely chosen to overstay.

I have had many feelings about you over the period, among them…

Where to start? At 28 we get married, at 29 get our first child and at 30 we welcome twins.

Wait, got pregnant again at 30 with twins or delivered them at 30?

Haha, delivered them. I was that breastfeeding Mom still figuring out how to handle a baby then boom, pregnant again. And just when I thought that was all, we realized that we were expecting twins.

Okay, life switched to the fast lane real quick, yeah?

Yeah, when we started parenting the three children. A one-year-old and a set of twins. Any parent will tell you that one child is A LOT of work. Ours were three, and we were just 30. At birth, the twins came out…

5 Little Laws to Spice Your Life

It occurred to me that in marriage, there were laws beneath that had passed unnoticed; and laws that would never have made sense (in theory) because we have to live through them to comprehend…And here’s to both.

The little law of flight landing

This little law states that you can never land so smoothly that you do not notice the change.

Change comes in many ways and with special demands.
Some effortless-like shifting from I to We, or Mine to ours in conversations. Some a little too much to ask of an adult but nonetheless necessary.

Like learning how to shift the conversation from ‘I am…

The days are long, but the years are short!

For some daft reason, I will start with an apology for ghosting you readers for the most part of the past year. Indeed, the days were long (extraordinaire); and before we knew it, the year gone. But was it that short?

Mathematically speaking, 2020 lasted approximately 24 months and 969 years. In religious language, this translates to all the suns and moons that Methuselah lived through. Financially, it was a year of lean returns and socially, the interactions were (close to) nil for the better part of the year. And yet we lived through it and are part of a…
