Your Baby & Toddler - - Letters -

I’m a young mother, 22 years old, to a beau­ti­ful baby boy Nt­shisekelo Asamela Ndlovu.

He keeps me busy 24/7, from wak­ing up in the early hours of the morn­ing to the late hours of the evening.

You see it in his eyes that it is go­ing to be a long night again – no sleep­ing, “pay at­ten­tion to me”. He will join me while am busy try­ing to study. We’ve even de­vel­oped a rou­tine; we work out to­gether as I try to re­store my body back to its old self. Train­ing has kept him flex­i­ble and en­er­getic long be­fore he was even born.

De­spite hav­ing a baby at such an early age, I have come to ap­pre­ci­ate the beau­ti­ful ex­pe­ri­ence that comes with it.

Be­ing re­spon­si­ble at my age some­times is chal­leng­ing as life stops to be the way you knew it. You now are re­spon­si­ble, not just for your­self, but for some­body else. Al­though I am learn­ing from my mother and sis­ter as well, it has been won­der­ful and a bless­ing to have a help­ing hand from his fa­ther. It makes things much eas­ier.

I thank God for my ev­ery­day on­go­ing learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with Asamela. It is a joy­ful jour­ney as he is now three months old. I en­joy see­ing him grow and learn­ing new things ev­ery mo­ment. He truly is price­less – a price­less fruit of my womb from God. NOLUTHANDO SIT­HOLE, WESTONARIA
