Restored To Factory Settings
Growing up as a child, I wasn’t accustomed to being expressive with my feelings. Hugs were not the in-thing. Neither was the use of endearing words like “I love you”, “You’re my darling”, etc I guess this kinda got me confused when I got older. I wasn’t really sure what my love language was […]
Why Is She The Only One Responsible?
There is this popular Yoruba saying usually made as a way of instruction to wives especially young wives which goes thus: “Ile oko, ile eko ni”.

🏋📝 A MAN ON A MISSION 🚶🏇
Some time ago, I wrote on a woman on a mission and surprisingly I got requests to write on the topic for the male folks as well. Smiles. It’s a blessing you know to have men who definitely know their being ain’t meant to be a norm or for them to be mere men. But […]

It’s A Girl? So?
I don’t just get it. I thought the fact that more people are getting formal education was going to change things a bit. I still hear some men talk as if they have never visited a school. . . I guess we need to send these men compulsorily to Biology classes all over again. […]
How Your Baby Sleeps
Even before birth, your baby’s days were divided between periods of sleep and wakefulness. By the eighth month of pregnancy or earlier, her sleep periods consist of the same two distinct phases that we all experience: Rapid eye movement (or REM) sleep, the time during which she does her active dreaming. During these periods […]
Burping Your Baby
Young babies naturally fuss and get cranky when they swallow air during feedings. Although this occurs in both breast-fed and bottle-fed infants, it’s seen more often with the bottle. When it happens, you’re better off stopping the feeding than letting your infant fuss and nurse at the same time. This continued fussing will cause […]
