At what age were you when you had your first child? Weeeelll, for me I was 30. Before getting pregnant, I felt like I was missing out.  I had accomplished so much and yet I was feeling empty…..but what was missing? It suddenly dawned on me that I wanted a baby and to make it worse……. the big 30 was fast approaching.  As it drew closer I became more depressed. Why was I so depressed? I  soon learnt  the  answer  to  this  question; I wanted a baby and I was  unmarried.  While  growing up,  I  harbored  thoughts of starting a family after marriage. But oh boy,   I had  suddenly  caught BABY FEVER.  My  fever  then  spiraled  to  a  high of  115 degrees Fahrenheit.  I was  burning  up!  Married or not, pregnancy  here I come!

For those who know me, they would tell you  that I did not know much about babies. I would not hold them nor change a diaper…I didn’t even know how to keep these precious little munchkins quiet or play with them. This fact  was  soon  dispelled  after my son was born. It was while with him that I learnt how to guh-guh- ga- ga, play peek-A-boo and not to mention, change diapers. My son keeps me so active on a daily basis. He is one bubbly baby. I could not ask for more as my life is now filled with chaotically beautiful  experiences of parenting.
