Almost 3 and the parenting jitters

My baby almost turns 3 and she’s growing fast. You think that they will stay young forever but they don’t and now she’s gonna have to go to school. I feel the tug on my heart already. When she begins to experience the real world not the safe cocoon i have tried to keep her in. I want her to be a child for as long as possible but i should want her to experience a great childhood. A time she can draw upon in the future a time she would want to recreate for her own kids if she gets them.
I also pray i don’t make horrible mistakes that will wound her i hope the mistakes i make will be helpful in building her character for her own life. I also hope I will have the patience to be gracious to admit I’m wrong and try to do better. This is all i hope for as she grows up.
There is no guide book for perfect parenting i guess you learn from what was parented on you and try to avoid mistakes and well make it up as you go along. I guess there are basic guidelines but at the heart of it you will not be right all the time you just pray you raise a good human and that they love you right back.
I love you baby turn 3 in style!!


Dying was a foreign concept to me. Sure i knew eventually i would have to die but it seemed like such a far thing. This all changed when i had my baby. Now i constantly weigh decision on whether it will affect my mortality or my baby’s. I think of who will care for her should something happen to me. Worse still i wonder how i will recover if anything were to happen to her. Basically all my choices today are centered on my mortality more so when i heard a friend died out of the blue.
I try to make each day count i grab hugs and kisses when i can get them and i say i love you everyday.

I hope…

I try to teach my daughter my beliefs hoping she will take them as her own. I want her to fundamentally be a good person and still be tough. But should she want to be a Buddhist or agnostic or whatever later on in her life, i pray for understanding and the ability to not be judgemental. To try to see past our differences and maintain a great relationship.
I think this applies anywhere a little understanding and less judgement and perhaps more tolerance and this world would be a step closer to world peace.

Thought the X was gone think again

Dear X
You are super annoying my goodness man! i have already gone through ‘six degrees of separation’!! So now am on the other degrees of moving on but sadly you pop up unexpectedly making me very off my usually zen game.
I don’t blame you though i blame myself …hold up, no SIR!! I BLAME YOU! Yes you for looking me up i mean seriously trolling your contacts to find me? Sad dude, sad.
So today for a few hours i was off my game but i listened to some power jams and had some very hateful conversations with my sisters and friends, now am cleansed and I’m back!
So i guess needed this to reinforce I’m not dead inside and i can get back up on that horse known as ‘backwards never’. So venting aside good luck to you but next time, give me no heads up just forget you ever met me at all.

Mischievous Baby whilst I mourn loss of World Cup

So the world cup made me cry. Oh how could Germany win. I was in deep denial but I’ve dealt with it. Nway now am dealing with an adventurous babay who is playing with water and getting up to mischief like eating my lipstick. How fast they grow now an locking up my makeup coz baby wants to try it on. Goodness gracious one day she will be a teenager. ” take a breather just calm down” is what am telling myself when i find myself spiralling out of control.
So am trying not to sweat but this baby has got me on edge so active to my benign laziness. Maybe i should be taking her for walks more to tire her out but that is also another dramatic moment. Me thinks baby will be an actress if her stunts are anything to go by.

Samba World Cup!!

We are halfway through round one of the group stages and we have seen upsets occur perhaps the greatest so far is defending champions Spain’s humiliating defeat to the Netherlands. The ultimate grudge match that left us wondering what the hell was Spain doing the whole 90 plus minutes. As for Netherlands amazing form guys and that’s how you revenge big times. We can only hope Spain will pull up from the pit of humble pie where they were mercilessly left bleeding and do much better as for the current standings they are last place in their group. Another upset was the defeat of Uruguay by Costa Rica perhaps not so bad as Spain’s but they are also bottom of group D. another team reeling in defeat that perhaps we almost expected was England who lost to Italy. England hasn’t been on top of their game for a while and this is definitely a warning.

Enough of defeats we saw amazing wins with world class football. Brazil kicked ass with Neymar showing us what to expect when we want goals, tantalizing magical football. Also Colombia was on form just scoring wonderful goals showing us that football was made for South America nothing of military stiffness just flowing passes and incredible goals. And so the World cup has begun with a bang preconceptions shattered but there is still time to recover or maybe more upsets are on the way. As per today these are the standings for Groups A-D:

(Order is highest to lowest

Group A

  1. Brazil
  2. Mexico
  3. Cameroon
  4. Croatia

Group B

  1. Netherlands
  2. Chile
  3. Australia
  4. Spain

Group C

  1. Colombia
  2. Cote d’ Ivoire
  3. Japan
  4. Greece

Group D

  1. Costa Rica
  2. Italy
  3. England
  4. Uruguay


So i watched the apparent ending of How i met your mother and i was totally diss-a-pointed i felt like that last season was a waste of my viewing time the long dragged out wedding and then the very annoying ending. I loved that show in the beginning but in the end it kinda sucked!!So i will keep the first 5 seasons the others well i’m not so sure but the last one i definately will not bother getting. So sad but goodbye cast we had some major laughs especially the slap bets were awesome. and we definately will suit up Swarley!!
