Mommy issues

Hello.

The quote in the image above gives me  hope.

You see, I've been busy trying to teach discipline while it is quite obvious by my randomly updated blog that I need help in the area. Good thing is I finally got a new laptop. Unfortunate update, I've had it for almost a month already and not even attempted writing again until tonight.

Issue one is now obvious; I have an issue with discipline.  I am not as disciplined as I think I am in my head. I have been struggling to get my three year old to respond when I say without his rationalizing of what he thinks should be done instead. I, the mother, who should know better have allowed some of the directives of the Word of God to be literally ignored because I have rationalized how difficult it is to be obedient to the fullest.SMH.  1 Samuel 15:22 shares that "...obedience is better than sacrifice," I want my children to get that. But oh, how I NEED to get it.

Trying Again in 2015

Its a new year, literally the second day of 2015, and I am finally making the time to write. Again.  After my daughter was born, my family battled chickungunya, my laptop screen lost its visibility and I noticed myself losing the motivation, I stopped writing. My thoughts were that I am not really good at it so why do it.

But, here I am. Again.

I am going to try. Again.

Not just because it is a new year, not just because my laptop is fixed (it isn't) but because giving up is OUT. Out of the question. Out of my head. Out from my habits.

Crazy Days and sickness

Hello,

This is just a quick note to let whoever may happen upon this blog that no, I did not die. my darling boys were messing around my laptop and broke the LED Screen, viruses and different sickness had visited my family and I have honestly be a bit discouraged and unmotivated to blog.

I pray all is well with you and your families. :) We are on the bend so for now I'll smile and move on.  Soon. We'll catch up again real soon.

He came into my life when he was three.  His father and I were just friends then. But I know he was not your typical child.

When he was nine, I become his new mom.  And I am still his new mom, I guess. But we are blooming just as he is blooming.

How do I even begin? Where exactly do I truly belong? I'm Trinidadian born, schooled in St. Vincent, and now married in St. Vincent while all my maternal and paternal family is in Trinidad or Canada.

My husband has the answer.

What this Nanny in Britain says...

I totally agree with the fact that our society is filled with a bunch of self absorbed, entitled children. Then I realize that I maybe contributing to it.

Part 2. What my children are teaching me about being a wife.

As most people in my life know, I have added a girl to my two boys and my scale of the sexes is now, somewhat, balanced.  With all the time I've been having to observe my little madam and add my experience with her to those I have with the boys....I've discovered something about my self.  I want to be a better wife because of my children.

This is the second post that I am sharing about a share a few things I have observed and intend to pursue as a wife.

2.  Listening to my husband.

I am a chatterbox and struggle with being a good listener.
