I always dreamt of having kids. After meeting Monsieur, I got all I ever wanted with 1, then 2 then 3 children. And so it was that as Glinda said, “Happy is what happens when all your dreams come true”. Isn’t it?
Well, it was, I admit, a tiniest bit, unlike I anticipated. There was a kind of a sort of; Cost.
There were a couple of things that got lost (starting with myself).
And if that joy, that thrill, didn’t thrill like I thought it would.Still, with these perfect little fingers, the giggles, the hugs and the kisses,… Who wouldn’t be happier?
Happy I was, but I lived in emotional, physical and mental chaos!
After my 3rd baby. I decided that I had to turn my household into an organised ship. If we were going to be on this journey, we had to be organised so everyone could enjoy this cruise..
So here we are today. Me living this journey and navigating this cruise ship. I want to share what we’ve been doing and what I’ve learnt because I believe it will benefit a lot of mothers.
There’s an African adage that says, you don’t just use your eye to do things.
It refers to living life in a prepared way. You don’t go into battle with your bare hands, you don’t do baking without measuring scales (well, some might), you don’t go out with your baby without spare nappies, spare everything, you don’t…, well, you get the point!
So. Here’s to the journey. To the prepared journey!
