After having 2 brothers and 2 sons, God felt I was special enough to have a female in my life to share my everything with. In 2009, I was blessed to have a daughter. Ironically, before she came along, it was my mom and I against the world. God knew I needed someone to keep me company, because the following year my mother passed away. Ever since, it’s been my daughter and I against the world. Thankfully, my mother was able to spend a year with her granddaughter, because all she ever wanted was a granddaughter.
Raising a little girl, is by far the most challenging and rewarding experience at the same time. One minute I’m in love, and the next, I’m ready to pull her hair out.
I remember having a conversation with my husband, at the time, about what I wanted in a girl child. I recall saying, “She will be smart, giving, well-rounded, curly hair…basically a mini replica of me only better”. I wanted a girl so bad, and then when her existence came about, I remember being overtaking with fear! I worried about her safety, her heart, her future, if I was a good enough role-model, and the list goes on.
When she finally arrived, it was like everything just fell into place. Having a female counterpart in my life after being surrounded by boys for a great deal of my life, was like a breath of fresh air. She was everything I envisioned her to be, and so much more. It also made me realize how different it would be raising a daughter versus two sons…EASIER.
This section is all about the diva, the good, the bad, and the ugly. She’s a gymnast, a dancer, and a gifted student. She is wise beyond her years, and apparently inherited all the common sense her brothers left behind in my womb. It’s all or nothing with her, she either brings me pure joy, or pure chaos at random!
Ladies and gentleman, I introduce you to my princes, Zizah-The-Diva
