“PEOPLE WILL STARE. MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE”

I wore this outfit for my cousin’s pre-wedding party and am really in love with  it!, though its simple its quite dressy and comfortable. I got this skirt a while back when I went to Italy and I had never worn it because I just could not find a top to go with it. My red shoes just made the outfit stand out, though when I wore these shoes before they made my toes hurt so I researched and I found out that if you spray hair hold spray on the bottom of your front feet, it stops them from sliding which makes them stick to your shoes which stops your toes from hurting and It worked! genius! ( don’t know if it works for closed shoes though try and see).

SHOULD I WORK OR BE A STAY AT HOME MUM??

So since before I finished university I have been trying to work out how I can work as well as be there for children. The career I want to do is to do with planning and running events and since this kind of job includes long hours and weekends too, I have been finding it difficult to see how I can make it work. So with this in mind I have been trying to find a job which I can do around my children.

One of the jobs I have been looking at is working in a school as the holidays would be the same as well as finishing times. The issue with this is that such jobs are not many and they ask that you have experience working in an administration background or that you have worked in a school before which I haven’t.

So my dilemma is should I follow my dream job or should I just get a job which works around my children? this is one of the major issues we as parents or mothers face when it comes to working, especially in holidays when kids are off for weeks and  childcare costs are ridiculously expensive!.

So my job search and dilemma continues but am sure it will work out.

Moral of the story, we as parents cant always do what we want or follow our dreams. Once we have children we have to focus on them.

What are your views guys? and if your a working parent/parents how do you do it?

NOT “CELEBRATING” HALLOWEN ANYMORE!

So Halloween is around the corner and everyone is talking about what they are going to wear and go as, now since I could remember I have always dressed up with my family and friends and went out trick or treating and since I have had kids they dress up in their costumes and we  take them out to trick or treat which they find fun. Now everyone feel a certain way about Halloween, some believe its against their beliefs or religion to celebrate it and other don’t care and feel its just good fun. For me I have been brought up in a Christian household and have always believed in Jesus or God but my mum was never the parent that told us not to enjoy Halloween and so we always done it every year.

Recently I had talked to the kids about not celebrating it to see what their opinions were about it and of course as children are they asked why? lol so Steve started explaining what Halloween stands for and how its against the Christian faith to celebrate it to my amazement the kids said they do not want to celebrate it no more!!!, I was like what? I was so gobsmacked and proud of them because I thought we were going to have a fight on our hand convincing and explaining why Christians should not celebrate it.

We are Christians and yes we celebrated Halloween but I don’t think that makes us bad people for doing that. I know a lot of Christian who would go crazy asking why we do it and why we would let our kids celebrate the day of the dead ( which being said in that context sound quite scary!) but at the end of the day if I  dressed up as Beyoncé or Michael Jackson, would you still say am celebrating the dead or just having fun? so is the question about the outfits that are worn or the actual day?

What are your thought guys? let me know in the comment below

P.S moral of the story is we have to try and listen to what our children think about different topics even though they are kids, they still have opinions and they should count.

HE CANT’T BREATH!!!!

So I have MIA for a minute but I have been quite busy and being mummy. So Jerome has been having a rough few weeks, about 2 weeks ago i was called by the school that he was not feeling well and he could not breath!! now imagine hearing your baby could not breath!. ( prior to this about 3 weeks before he had a cold and was really stuffy to the point where he could not breath without waking himself up so I decided to sleep with him so I could keep an eye on him. I have never used albos and vicks in one night so much lol) So I rushed to pick him up and bless his little self his stomach and chest were literally moving up and down so much because he could not  breath and was struggling so I called the doctor to get an emergency appointment and to my surprise ( thinking about it now I was not surprised) they told me the next appointment they could give me was in 2 hours time!!! I was so pissed!!! I told them the boy cant breath and you want me to wait two hours??? i was so angry. At this point I called Steve to let him know whats going on and he left work to come with us to hospital.

So instead of waiting for my son to get worse I took him to A&E luckily it was not busy when we went in so they saw him quickly. They checked him and they said he might have asthma! or a viral infection, so they put him on a pump and oxygen to help him breath which started to help him. We were there for about 3 hours so Steve left to go pick up Faith form school. when we got discharged he was a lot better but you could still hear his breathing was raspy so they gave us a pump to use at home and was told to make an appointment to see our usual doctor for him to be diagnosed! which I felt was just one of the stupidest ideas, we were in a hospital!! why could they not diagnose him there??? anyway we went doctors and they said the same thing as the hospital that they thought it was asthma or viral infection (well duh tell me something new).

The doctor gave him antibiotic tablets to take for 3 days and a breath tester to see how strong his breathing is and we have been using that for the last few weeks and he seems to be back to normal ( thank God!). Motherhood can be so hard and scary but his on the mend. 🙂
