5 MUST HAVE ITEMS WHEN TAKING YOUR KIDS TO A NIGERIAN SCHOOL

September 19, 2017


Dear Diary,

I definitely need a little break from waking up every morning to take care of my daughter and taking her to school. Just 1 year ago, i couldn't wait to send her off. In my mind she was disturbing me and i needed the space. So when I decided to take her to pre school, i was so happy, I started to make a list of what had to go in her bag. I mean, it’s not a do or die affair, but if I forgot some things, and then they call me from school to remind me.  It makes me feel bad.  As a second time mom, I’ve learned that after you tell your self one million times not to forget anything or remind yourself of the things to carry out. I still tend to forget. And because i mostly forget the important things like her cutlery, i just respected myself and today, i decided to write them down and share with you guys.




LUNCH, WATER, JUICE, SNACKS and FRUITS

This is the most important of them all in my opinion, unless you plan on receiving calls from the child's teacher or turning your child to a longa longa. Although my daughter doesn't always finish her food. I always make sure i put enough cause it's better for the child to remain than to want more. And there are really a lot of cheap things you can pack for your kids and they are pretty easy to prepare.  check out SISIYEMMIE.COM for easy meal ideas for your child. And of course this will be packed in a lunch bag. 

CUTLERY:

I can remember forgetting to put jina's spoon in her bag and immediately she saw me, the first thing she said was why didn't i put her spoon with sadness written all over her face. I can only imagine how she felt when she didn't see it. So make sure it's something you don't ever forget. 

BIB:

This is very important especially if your child is still a toddler. Who else hates it when you dress up your child looking beautiful to school, then she comes back looking very messy. i hate hate it so i make sure i have a bib that covers a reasonable part of her uniform so it there is no messing up of anything. 

FACE TOWEL

Who else just loves face towel. i love it so much especially a white or pink face towel designed with flowery things. This is very necessary for  wiping away any remnant of food. That face needs to be pretty and clean.

WIPES:

Wipes are a necessity....I don't like my kids bum to be wiped with tissue cause sometimes, these schools use tough tissues and my daughter's skin is delicate so i don't want any roughness added to it. The ones she has don belle full me. You can use also it on the face whenever you forget the face towel. So it's a buy one use for two...lol.

Jina has this thing that she reacts to small bites and just grass and others. So i always wear her pop socks. Don't blame me, it's pretty too.  Try pop socks for your princesses and it helps with cold. So win win
Hey DAM Fam–What other items should you pack when taking toddler to school?

3 MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT GETTING MARRIED IN YOUR 20s | DIARY OF AN ABUJA MOM

September 12, 2017
Happy new month beauites!
Welcome back to my blog as in real blogging not vlogging
I missed writing for you guys. I’ve been more focused on my YouTube than actually writing. . I have posted some videos on my channel and i was  shocked when i saw that my HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE NIGERIAN YAM PORRIDGE| IGBO STYLE  video reached 1.4k views. Thanks guys for watching. I really love and appreciate you  so so much. God bless all of you. If you haven't seen it yet.

Anyways, So today I decided to share some misconceptions about getting married in your early 20s. I would also appreciate it, if you guys let me know below what other misconceptions you know and also share your experiences.  


3 big misconceptions about getting married in your 20s
So, over the course marriage, I have been married for 5 years. Talked about it here and did small life update
             

 I’ve heard a lot from people, especially over sabi aunties to I too know people in general both online and people I know personally. In fact ill give you some real life scenarios. I’m a bit disturbed about this mindset and I thought I should share my thoughts here  so i can also know what you guys think about this..

1. You should get pregnant one night after.

So i can remember someone asking me why i haven't taken in as she put it. and how my friend angrily replied her that can't she see that i'm pregnant. Now that's a general question they ask most married people which is annoying but when you emphasize the "you are young thingy" and how you should be very fertile and take in immediately. It is amusing and a joke to me. Like you are God or your work is just to be monitoring sombori. monitoring spirit. weldone.

2.  You should have more kids.


Chai, se me here planning my life how i will have a particular of kids and someone is here telling that i should have like 7 kids or every 9 months, i should be pregnant. it is invasion of privacy to me. How can you tell me seriously that because of my age, i should have more children because i don't have any other thing to do but have kids. One thing I know for sure is that having kids is a choice, and you can choose to have one or more kids. I think one of the biggest misconceptions about being a young wife is that people want to make choices for you without caring about your opinions. That mindset needs to be abolished. 

3. You can't last in marriage.

I think sisiyemmie of sis yemmie blog did a post  where she talked about how it's best to get married in your 30s and i counter did a post  and a video here
            .
 Let me know your thoughts.

I can remember always seeing movies where if you marry a younger woman, she will finish all your money and won't know how to cook or take care of a family. Like it was everywhere. I even had to ask hubby if i'm like that and he said "no" and i asked him why do people always make it look like we are all the same. It's just like saying all men are cheats. Are they all, really?  In fact watch the video, Listen to my opinion and let me yours.

5 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR BABY'S BODY CREAM

June 14, 2017
Hello beauties, so today i decided to write on my blog (drum rolls please) yea I have been concentrating on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL and i have done so many amazing videos and the response is unbelievable so my blogging has being on hold. So for those who missed me...i'm back..I'll be posting here too at least once a week. So I did a post on GO CHEAP WITH PEARS BABY LOTION and realized that I'm supposed to have done this first. Choosing your baby cream is very important as a new mom or just a mom in general. And I know how annoying it is to buy a cream and it doesn't perform or just wasn't right for your baby's skin. So here are some of the things, you should consider and I hope you find it very helpful

1

 Budget: This is the first thing you should consider before choosing  a baby cream. In this case follow follow isn't allowed because you don't want to be having high blood pressure whenever your baby's cream finishes. I see a lot of moms being worried because their baby's cream will finish soon. So you have to know your pocket and know what you can afford so that even in recession you will be able to close eye and buy it.

2

Survey: In as much as you want to watch your pocket, you also have to ask questions o. Its not just to buy  any thing you see, NOOOOOO and not just one or two people but as many moms as you can ask. This will help you to know the one that is good, bad and even affordable. Cause sometimes you go to the market and when they notice you are a newbie. They will try to increase the prices or when you hear price, your heart will just be doing you gbim gbim like me  and nothing is as painful as when you and some moms are discussing and you ask how much they bought a certain cream and they say 1500 naira meanwhile you bought yours 4500 naira.


3

Consider your Baby's skin. This one works when your lil one is already here. For my case Jina's skin was very sensitive so I had to later change her cream twice and finally opted for one which works perfectly.

4

Weather: This our weather is somehow now so we have to be careful in choosing our little one's cream...yes it's very important to consider weather. If it's hot, you choose something mild and not too sticky. You know sometimes baby go just dey cry cry and us mothers will be quick to say na so him dey do/cry meanwhile..it is what we applied on him that's making him/her to be uncomfortable and fussy
 ( NOT IN ALL CASES). So for dry weather, use something oily or you can mix the body lotion and an oil/butter like Shea 

5

Natural or .  .very important. So before you give birth, you have asked all  your questions and done your survey and checked your budget and so on and so forth. Now what do you want. Ask your self these questions.

Do you want to use things like Shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil etc. ?

Have you seen anyone that has used it before and it  worked?

Do you like the smell. This is not a joke o cause some moms will use Shea butter and start complaining about the smell.

Will you be able to make it yourself or buy from retailers?

So you have to be sure if you want to go natural which is the best option cause at the long run your child skin will just be looking like soft bread or you want to go the other way.



Remember not to completely dry baby's skin before applying cream. just dab the towel on them and apply cream., The remaining water will help the cream penetrate into the skin.


So what do you use for your baby's skin?
What would you recommend?
What are the pros and cons?
Do you have any more things to add, please do cause we nor dey learn finsih
