.. On Motherhood
Being a mum makes you more loveable. I did not know or understand this part of myself – that I could be this soft -until I started popping out babies! 👶🏾 I cannot do certain things like fight online or be seen in the midst of drama or in the middle of a scandal because of my children.
It’s surprising how there were things I wanted to do about 10 – 15 years ago, however, when I started giving birth, everything just switched. #Motherhood
.. On the Home Front
When a woman or man has peace of mind in their home, that home is going to flourish. It will be blessed. Peace is bigger than love. You cannot love anybody when you are not at peace with yourself or that person.
.. On #selfcare
My self-care is detox! I take 24 hours offline at least once a month because I need my sanity and it has worked for me. .
.. On #LagosMumsLove
Sometimes when I need tips about certain things, I spend hours on your page. LagosMums is my go-to place as a mum and parent #ThankYouWeLove
Let me speak it into existence on your platform – I want to visit Bora Bora and the Fiji islands. I have been dreaming about it. I want an all expense paid trip to these places. #Travel
