Welcome to my blog! My name is Tshepiso Evon Musehani, I am a young mom of two boys, and a deputy mom to my 4 siblings.
My husband (Melvin Musehani aka ‘The Appchemist’) and I got married in 2016 and in that same year I gave birth to our little genius, Rofhiwa. I didn’t really feel like I am a whole adulting mother because both my mother and mother-in-law were there to help us out and to give us a ‘break’ every now and then. However, something that we did gave God the idea that we are winning at this parenting thing. So God took my dearest mother on the 4th of January 2019.
I don’t know if this is a general thing throughout all races, but I know to be the eldest child in black African families, automatically qualifies you as the ‘Deputy Parent’. On that day we went from ‘part-time’ parenting one child to full-time parents of 5 children. You can just imagine how that changed our lives. A few months later I found out that I was pregnant, and would soon be a mother of two boys, deputy mom to 4 siblings and an aunt (mma mogolo) to my sister’s child.
I’m a mom and a debuty mom blessed with a wonderful husband who has been coding since he was thirteen, my own private developer who sorts out all my computer-related issues. There he was finally done with my blog and I could finally stop using him as an excuse for procrastinating, and that’s when we saw the B-word! However, I was not gonna let a simple ‘b’ hold me back. Nope, it was time to prove to myself that I can make lemonade from the lemons thrown at me. So I am a mom and debuty mom, deputy with a ‘b’ for beauty because motherhood is beautiful regardless of how you became a mother.
As young parents, we know that this journey is going to be very challenging, demanding, and stressful at times, but this is our life now and we are determined to work together to give everyone who is under our care the best that we can offer. We also know that we can’t do it on our own so I would like to take you with on this wonderful mysterious journey of figuring this parenting thing out.
