Adulting and Transitions

Transitions are difficult and exhausting to go through. Even the welcome ones like childbirth, new employment and marriage have the hard weaved into the joy. One moment you are somewhat getting accustomed to the changes of pregnancy and the next you have a baby in your arms and surviving on four hours of sleep on a good day.

Quarantine Friendly Dates with Your Toddler

Like many mommas, one of my biggest goals this year was to spend more intentional time with my daughter and take her on many ‘first time’ dates. So, I wrote down ideas for activities she had never done, like swimming, and places she had never been, like the zoo. I had managed to knock off a few of these, then in came the ‘Rona’. Because most, if not all the activities I came up with were outdoorsy, and the outdoors are currently closed till further notice, I thought I would have to cancel everything.

Navigating Office Politics

After months, sometimes even years of job hunting, you finally land a job. It is not the dream job, but it is a job with decent terms. You are excited so are your family and friends. You start at your new job and soon get the hang of it. Or so you thought.

Mother’s Day without Mama

With Mother’s Day a few days away, I am tempted to think that I miss Mama more during this time. But there is no day I miss her more. I miss her the same each day because it is impossible to miss her any more than I already do.

Coronavirus and Uncertainty

I do not know how to respond to the global pandemic.

I am hopeful sometimes and then I am not. I am frustrated by the inconveniences the lock-down has brought about then I am reminded that it could get a lot worse than just inconvenient.
Most days I am getting by. Living a day at a time. Washing my hands, staying home and avoiding touching my face.
