Hi, I am Amaka Benson. I have been married to the love of life for 2 amazing years and counting (wow, has it been that long). I became a mother for the first time in 2014. I am a full time wife, full time mother and a full time energy analyst…I guess I can now add full time
blogger mummy blogger to that list, lol.
Here are some random facts about me:
• I am obsessed with my husband and son
• I love cooking
• I hate reality TV
• I love to laugh and make people laugh
• I am not a morning person but mummyhood changed that
• My astrological sign is cancer… That is all I know
Now you know me, lol!
So I decided to start a website to create a platform that made women comfortable to discuss their setbacks, triumphs and the everyday joys that redefined their notions of motherhood! We always hear the same old phrases… “Motherhood changes you”, “You’ll never be the same” but we are not really told what to expect and many women especially in Africa don’t talk about how hard it is. I am going to share stories about my mummy experience, my journey to motherhood, faith, life as a working mum, the things I love and so much more. I am a first time mum but I hope my tips, recommendations (I will be your crash test dummy), stories and prayers make life easier and motherhood more fun..My friend Jess (she’s amazing) inspired me to start this website – we’ve been talking about it since March but I was nervous to take that first step – how would it be received? I woke up one morning and realised that we only get one chance at this thing called life so I prayed about it and started writing (haven’t looked back since). I am so excited to start a new chapter in my life so please feel free to stop by and say hi, leave suggestions and tell your friend to tell a friend!!
