I am TIREEEEEEEED! Being a human being is hard talk more of being a mother and a wife , I have been soooo busy of late with work and life. I went through a week of depression and if you ask me what I am depressed about I wouldn’t even be able to tell you. My main wahala right now is that I don’t know if I am pregnant or my body is just holding on to my fat , please can someone tell my outer fat girl to release my inner skinny girl biko at least she can tell me the ransom to pay let me go and save for it, she’s holding back my inner Rihanna Oh emm geee.

I have also been very tired , I have napped at least 3 times this week ( I don’t take naps, EVER), I have had superman type cravings like white Amala type cravings and I have not been able to do any exercise but I have just had my period.

I don’t know if I should do a pregnancy test or just accept that I am some how doing this to myself , all I know is I am not about to have an I didn’t know I was pregnant moment.

photoKunmi looks the way I feel here lol

I am also trying to plan Kunmi’s (who has Apollo by the way) birthday bash. Talking about Apollo aka Conjunctivitis a lady at my work says to wash his face with pee as in wee wee let’s just say I died for 1sec and the Lord brought me back. I know I shouldn’t be selfish but I can’t afford to catch it as I have the ELOY awards this weekend ( I was nominated for best on air personality) and I cannot do my red carpet walk with Ruby Woo eyes its not possible so pray for me and now I feel like I am the most irresponsible mother in Africa not the world just Africa.

Which brings me to my 2nd question, How much should one spend on a 1st year birthday because ehn the economy is very very deliciously hard. I want to have a nice party but can I have a decent party without spending up to N500,000 please let me know what you think. How much have you spent? Should I do it in yard or rent a place ? I don’t want Kunmi to judge me when he is older because I judge my parents lol

Please feel free to email me Temilola@ftmbaby.com

    500K! Wow! Lol let me stop pretending that’s a lot. I’ve been to some serious multi million naira baby birthday parties…but the sad thing is, upon all the owambe celebrations, ebony band jubilations, the baby has NO idea what’s going on. Sometimes the baby cries the whole time due to all the loud noise and celebrating from the adults. Personally, I think that you should be guided by what your child will enjoy, and not what society expects =)
    p.s. – love your website!

    Sincerely 500k is too much Ooº°˚ ˚°ºoo. Like previous people commented, the celebrant is not really aware of what is happening that day and such parties are attended by adults more than kids. So organize something that u can do in ur house, food, dj, candy floss, ice cream for the kids and a comedian that can anchor the party. U can also make party packs for other kids that attended.

    500k for a 1st year party!!! That’s ‘three’ much jooor. I celebrated my 1st son’s 4th year bthday (Dec 8th) and my 2nd son’s 1st year (Dec 10th) together on Dec 15th and I spent less than 100k. Invited few friends and family members,got a canopy nad chairs,cooked good food and drinks too. Got d party packs for 36kids @ iponri and we had a fantastic parryy. My 2nd son cried all thru and even didn’t want to take pics sef. Most 1st year olds dunno what’s happening on dt day,why waste money to feed pple who aren’t hungry!

    As for me, I DONT celebrate 1st birthdays for my kids bcos i found out that we just put d kids under unnecessary stress. They are cranky all day and cry or sleep for most of it. What i do is take d baby out. Buy a lovely cake, then go to a photography studio (in d days of Lefayts) and just have a mom, dad and baby day out (plus siblings when they came along).

    Having a party is even stressful on d mom. If u’re planning for 30 kids, u’ll cook for 60-90 adults cos moms and dads will bring their babies, then the siblings and a househelp. I beg, too much wahala jare. Didnt see my 1st birthday pics till date and nothing’s wrong wth me. We need to face realities and stop putting ourselves under unnecessary pressures jare
