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.
