just a chick from Trinidad writing about her life on a small island but with big dreams all the same.

My son's teacher told me this story yesterday she was teaching the kids about heaven and hell and she asked the class if they knew what hell is and my son answered by saying ......

You mean like in what the hell?

Guess who he got that from? His teacher was not amused she said we have to be careful what we say infront of him. I thought I was too old to get lectured especially by my son's Kindergarden teacher. Oh well what can you do.

This post by Zulieka who just had a baby had me thinking about when I was a new mom and my friends became the ones who understood my new responsiblilties and the ones who did not get it.

Some of our friends wanted us to continue liming (trini term for hanging out) and they just never got that when you are breastfeeding its hard to party and drink like you used to and that your child becomes your priority. My DH and I we did things the hard way we did not hire any help we both worked shift and used to do a tag team thing and lordy we were so tired at the end of the day sometimes we learned a lot of lessons that its ok to ask for help, that people like family and friends can and will be able to take care of your baby sometimes better than you can and its ok to go out even if its one night for the month.

Also its not ok to say hell in front of a 5 year old.

I'm back from a fun trip to country. Sounds like your doing a good job if that's the dirtiest word coming out of your child's mouth. Kids grow up so fast nowadays
