What’s Your Grade? ‘A’ as a Mom ‘F’ as a Wife?

VIDEO:  Have you recently taken the time to ask yourself…”What’s my grade as a wife and as a mother?” If you take the time to do some self reflection and honest self examination you will discover your strengths and weaknesses in these roles. Far too often we are way out of balance and pay more attention to one area of our lives than the others and consequently something or someone suffers. We need to be balanced in life and in love. How do you measure up? Do you make the grade? Leave a comment with your thoughts or submit a video response. We want to hear from you.

    I do agree with both statements: However in time I do believe that both can be possible with constant timeouts. I do agree that both can be handled appropriately. I too am having time with parenting and trying to find a fulfilling love life as well so I hope to make it to the Olympics soon!

    Great topic and I do feel a constant struggle to equally give both our three children and my husband attention. But being truly honest I do feel that I put our children first. When I look at my kids that range from 1 to 9 they are still in need of mommy’s help and attention. They can’t cook for themselves & my youngest two still need me to bathe them. I would grade myself as a A- as a wife and a A as a mother. I do wonder how my husband would grade me….hmmm? Thanks for keeping it real and honest!!!

    Okay, so now ya'll need to do a follow up video…Aiyana, I would like to hear how you keep it all balanced, how do you make sure you're handling your business as both a mother and a wife? And to Ayize, what has Aiyana done to get to an "A"? In the video, Aiyana mentioned that she hasn't always been an A as a wife, so how did you guys get to that point? What changes did you all make?

    You might wait a year before you grade her. I know it sounds like a long time but having a newborn is a major adjustment for a mom and for most women their attention is rightfully so directed toward their children after birth.

    I like the way the two of you interact. I see real love. I'm going to give my wife a "D" as a wife and a "A-" as a mom. My wife doesn't cook the way i'd like her to. She no longer wears the sexy bedwear, and she's shut down when it comes to sex. So right now she's teetering the line of "D" and "F" when it comes to her duties. Our newborn is getting all the love and I'm being neglected.

    Yall are too funny. LOL. I’d give myself a B as a wife and an A as a Mom. My husband would probably disagree. He’s always griping about sex…which is getting on my last nerve. LOL
