The word MAMA has a different meaning at my house!!!

 
Posted by Picasa


As the title says, this word has found a new meaning - courtesy of Faritle. The word is called out wether I am there or not. When I am there, he shouts it out and then looks at me. This does no mean that he is calling me. It means, "Mummy I am being naughty and what are you gonna do about it." It is a clear challenge and when he sees me aproaching he starts running. These days his favourite past time is switching on and off the television straight from the wall plug. For him this is victory cause I had put the child lock on cause he was making the television his play thing. Mama thought she was clever and switched on child lock just to get the "MAMA" and a victory glance. The above picture is an example of when I get the "MAMA" just to see if I am close by. He also loves playing with water and has learnt to turn on the taps outside. He turns on the tap and then "MAMA". Now the word to me spells:
Disaster
Naughtiness
A challenge
The cutest smile I have ever seen that says you have caught me
Above all, a mother's love cause most of the time i end up laughing and giving him a big squeeze cause I just love him

I have wondered if time outs and all the supernanny staff will work??? He is just 28 months after all :-). Any advice woild be highly appreciated. Till next time.

October, Breast Cancer Month

I cannot believe that October is almost over. It is my birthday month. It is 19 years this year since I lost a sis to leukemia which started out as breast cancer. So this makes October special to me. She was still young, about 27 if Igot the dates right. I was barely 17 (now everyone knows my age which aint a big deal anyway) then and doing my Form 3. I have always wondered what she would look like if she was still with us here on earth???? I have wondered how she would react to having two beautiful grand daughters???? I have looked at this photo taken on her daughter's wedding and could not help feeling that there was someone missing. (Except for my brother and I)
 

On a happier note, I know that she is with Jesus and is not feeling the pain no more. Love you sis always.

By the way all three in the pic are my sisters for those of you who do not know.

Am married to a hard working man

Good morning blog!!!! My husband has not really slept for about three days. He is getting home around midnight or after midnight. The joys of being married to an accountant. They are doing budgets and you would wonder why we never do our home budgets with so much effort. Am sure it would kill us all. Looking at him when he gets home you definately notice that he is exhausted but he soldiers on. Aluta continua-the struggle goes on until it is won. You are definately assured that there is a certain time of year that you would hardly see him. I am hoping that today is the last day and we will have him home until next year around this time again.

Faritle really misses his tata. He gets very clingy to him when they are together. This does not help the situation, think of it a 2 year old and seperation anxiety. He screams when he realises that tata has sneaked out and the scraems usually wakes nesu up and the cycle continues. Anyway, we all miss tata and hope that things will settle down soon at work.

My next post will be about the great we had whem my sister in law visited with her son. My mother was here as well. Will have to ask permission to bublish Sekuyu's job first.

AM ON FIRE!!!!!

As promised, here is the first update with the old posts from my previous blog. These are some posts that I will always treasure cause they remind me of where we came from.

On our way to arts 5/02/07
It's been long since I posted. We are now o0n our way to ARTS and we are both very excited. Don't know what to expect though and a little bit scared as well. Our first appointment is on the 14th of June. Hopefully I will be able to post again soon.

Starting with meds 9/19/07
On Friday I will be starting with meds. This makes me a little nervous in anticipation of what is to come. Thank God for the support system that I have, am assured of moral and spiritual support.


Baby Farai is here 8/13/08
He arrived on the 2nd of July through c-section. Here is a pic of him. He weighed 3.08kgs and his length was about 47cm. He had lots of hair which was also very long. Right now we are all enjoying him. He is a fairly calm baby who wakes up twice for his feeds and sleeps most of the time during the day. He is now almost six weeks and seem to be changing everyday. Whenever we look at him we see how wonderful our God is. In my language we say tinoona ruoko nekunaka kwaMwari. The dad cannot get enough of him. Will try and post a more recent pic soon.

I PROMISE

To keep this blog up to date. I promise I will not be lazy to update it. I promise I promise I promise. Iam also going to transfer some of my old posts form my previous blogs and put then on here so I can delete the once a year update blogs.

We are now a family of four and it has been very hectic. There is Farai the dad (tata), Mapipi the mummy (mummy/mama), Farai (faritu) junior and Anesu (nesu). Anesu was born in August and everyone seem to comment on how big he is. He was born weighing 2.6kg and at 8 weeks he was 5.6kg. And this has all been achieved via braestmilk. I am ver proud of myself. Because of his size we (tata and I)we thought we were going to suplement with formula but that has not happened yet YIPPIE.

Here are some pics of the family.
