Writer’s Workshop: What Did you say Mummy?

Tiger girl painting


“What did you say mummy?” asked Tiger girl

“Am I to paint this side or the other side of the box?” she asked.

“You can paint any side of the box that you like dear” I replied

Tiger girl goes on to dab her brush into the blue paint on the palette.

“Mummy I want more colour!!” she requests.

” I want green,” she asks while pointing to the tube of green paint on the table.

I opened up the tube and poured some into the palette.

” I want yellow!!” she ordered next. ” No I want black”

I  hold up both tubes to her and asked her again which colour she wanted.

“Both” she decided.  I poured  both colours out into the palatte for her.

” Mummy can’t paint!!” she fusses

” Of course dear, ” I replied” You got your brush upside down again. ”


Do your kids like doing art too?

Are they into colours?

Writer’s Workshop: How Difficult it is to be an Adult

Tiger girl


Being an adult is not an easy thing to do. There are many decisions to make which not only impact you lives but the lives of those around you. You, yourself  are responsible for your actions  and there is no one else to take the blame for you.

Here is a list of  7 worst things about being an adult

  1. Having to work to earn money so that you can pay off bills.
  2. Not having enough sleep and still having to function even when not physically fit.
  3. Having to solve your own problems and the kids problems. You are also suppose to have the answers to all the kids questions.
  4. You have to make sure that the house is kept and everyone is fed.
  5. You are responsible for the kids that you and the  hubs created.
  6. Having to act mature especially around the kids. It is not acceptable to throw tantrums and expect everything to fall into place because of it.
  7. No one tells you how difficult it is to get back into shape after childbirth. It’s a constant struggle to look as good as you were when you were a teenager.

What difficulties do you face as an adult?

Would you prefer being an adult or  remain a child?
