    Keep at IT

    My daughter had a sudden break out of acne. It was everywhere. I mean everywhere on her face. And so I asked her about the activated charcoal soap I gave, she smiled and said it’s there🤦🤦. Am learning to ask teenagers more direct questions 🙄🙄🙄. So I said “are you using it?” She started laughing. I guess we all know the answer. She wasn’t using it. So I gave her mine. By the next day, she walked up to me very excited and said “mummy, it clearing”. I rolled my eyes and said “Duhh” (yes, sometimes I speak in their language 😁) But 2 days later, no progress on the…

    A closed mind

    As any regular school morning would go, we were all rushing. Rushing to get dressed. Rushing to eat. Rushing to get in the car. We were finally ready and then I heard a commotion behind me. The twins were arguing 🤦🤦. What was really the issue? Who would stay on a particular side of the car? And I heard “it’s my turn” “can’t you shift” “I want to go thru this way” and plenty other arguments. Back story; they have obviously come up with a system about who sits where on which day, for the sake of equality. And someone else was not following the rules. The irony of this…

    Keep Talking

      Even though his birthday had passed, for some unexplainable reason, my son was singing “it’s my birthday, am gonna do what I like, am gonna eat what I like, everybody loves me, it’s my birthday” As usual his twin sister got irritated and said” it’s not your birthday”. He said ” ehnn, leave me” And he kept singing. Moments later she said “you can’t do what you like” He said ” maybe you can’t but I can” And he kept on singing. She said “not everybody loves you” At this point, he didn’t even bother to reply, he just kept singing. Much louder this time. Got to a stage…

    Do the work

    Over the long weekend, my children were going through my phone and I heard some noise. So I asked, “what’s are you looking for in my phone” My daughter said “I can’t find any video of myself dancing but I have seen my brother’s own”. I collected the phone dreading how she was going to say I prefer her brother. When I got the phone back and watched the video, I clearly remembered the day I took the video. I was trying out a new filter and I begged them to dance. She refused. He didn’t. In fact he danced and danced and danced. Goes to say I had about…

    Finding joy wherever

    My second son has always been a bundle of joy. He keeps playing, and having fun even when things don’t look good. You see, he struggles with his health and with his academics. The difference is very obvious especially since his twin seems to be so good academically and rarely falls ill. He doesn’t say much but I know that he feels bad everytime she gets one more prize or award. But last week his time came. His school had been practicing for interhouse sports and he was representing Green House. On the very last week, he was told to switch to his sister’s house (topaz) This meant he lost…

    Know your worth

    My son asked his sister to go and get him a glass of water. She turned and said “why?” Him: Because I am older than you. She : which kind older? Is it not just with 1 minute.? Him: Even though, it’s still something. I am your senior. 😂😂😂😂😂. So I am asking you if you are confident in your position in Christ Jesus. Do you know, you have been called the sons of God? My son knows he’s entitled to some level of respect, even if his sister doesn’t think him important enough. Are you boldly standing on the fact that the owner of the whole universe is your…

    Paying the price

    As long as there is more than one child in a house, there always be a case to settle. Just ask any mum. There’s always sibling rivalry. Just ask Eve. My twins are no different. They compete over everything. And I mean everything. The worst part is that they are so different. Makes you wonder why they fight so much. A few weeks ago, my daughter was selected to go for a competition to represent her school. And her brother was not. I thought he was fine with it until he asked to speak to me privately. Him; “mummy, why did they pick my sister for the maths competition and…
