Wake up Momma!
Open your eyes mommy!
Okay…so my son some times co sleeps on our bed, and I’m always aware when ever he moves, or wakes up…, I pretend I’m asleep, so he tries to wake me up…bless him . First he kisses my nose, I don’t move, then my lips, I still don’t move, then he kisses my eyes(very sloppy), yet nothing, at this point he is getting fed up, and has a very questionable stern look… then the painful part starts, I get a scratch on the face(no preference this time) I still don’t make a sound, finally he goes in for the kill… Hair yanking!!! Bulls eye! It hurts!! The rest they say is history. He finds it extremely funny, and giggles so hard he drops himself on the bed …lol, love it…makes the hair yanking all worth it.
During your pregnancy stages, they say sleep as much as you can when you feel tired, even if you’re not sleepy, just rest your head. Once your little one graces you with he’s/her presence, sleep becomes a luxury..

My hubby laughs at me every time we have this conversation, thought I'd share it with you, especially to the very newly wedded wives.
We both have always worked very hard, our daily grinde was second to none, so we get to meet most weekends. On the few occasions I spend the weekend at his. (Heads up- I am African, Nigerian to be precise- I can't speak for all, but where I'm from you do not live with a man, till he does the needful- put's a ring on it, meets the parents, and wedding) It was always nice to get away from the norm for two days, so come Sunday evening, I'm headed back to my Parent's, or I head to work on Monday morning, then back to my Parent's after work.
After getting married, I moved into his house (where i now call home). It was exciting, I was buzzing from being newly wedded, making plans in my head to redecorate, not sharing my space with my baby sister..pheewww! and of course being adventrous in the kitchen, and you knowww??
Then came (…
I have been married to my Amazing hubby for two years plus now, and I can say for definite the beginning of our Marriage journey was no walk in the park. You know how everyone believes they have an opinion and tell you what to do, what not to do, how to handle your husband blah blah...Well I did get all that advice and more.
I remember my oldest sister saying to me a couple of weeks to my wedding ''You two will fight a day to your wedding, you'd want to rip his head off his neck, you will reach a point were you might not want the wedding to hold'' I looked at her in shock, like really though??! Lol. But she was right, because we did have a squabble a night to our wedding, and boy! was I exhausted and needed sleep so bad,? I was scared of morning eye bags, but i was also glad she told me ahead of time.
Ever heard the ''Honeymoon phase''? Well you either have it after your wedding ceremony, all rosy, lovey dovey period, or you get the ''Argg…
I guess he knew I was ''the one'' the minute we met. But how did we meet? Hmmmm.. Well my dears, let me tell you a story. It was:
June 22nd 2012, 1pm.
Location: My sister's house
Event: Nephew's 2nd Birthday
My sister and I were prepping for the arrival of guests, we were cooking, decorations, making gift bags, you know the lot. We looked a hot mess, tired, smelly, hot. So being the host, I asked her to have a quick shower, as guest were starting to arrive and I could finish up with the cleaning. I was just rounding up with the tidying up when the door bell rang, another guest obviously. I opened the door, and there he was... Tall, dark, clean shaved, smelled so good. And yours truly? Dirty, hot mess, hair wrapped in a scarf, food fume for perfume...Lol Oh! How embarrassing!! Before I go any further, my sister and her husband had been trying to play cupid between myself and this stranger at the door... He had seen pictures of me, but I had no idea what he look…
