Life With My Boy: Loan me a Sister!


Hello peeps, saw this very funny post on my friend’s Facebook wall (pictured left with her cute son) and I just had to share. Enjoy!

This pikin no go ki mi!┬áSo we sit down to do homework and it’s titled ‘write about your sister’, na so my boy shout ‘mummy I don’t have a sister’! And I answer; yes you don’t but we have to write something! He answers; no mummy I don’t want to lie! I don’t have a sister and na so bros waka comot!



Personally, I wonder why the homework didn’t have a more a generic title. LOL


Life With My Boy: Ownyee & Son


This is a feature photo story of my friend Ownyee and her cute little boy. I saw the pix on her Facebook wall and thought to share.

It really doesn’t need much words… Just enjoy the Mother-Son affection and the surrounding environment.

Shout out to all Mothers and their Cute ones!

Life With My Boy: Life In The Jungle


My son had just finished eating his food and decided to pick the remaining grains in the plate with his fingers. He saw I was watching him and then said;

“Mummy I’m eating like a Gorrilla.”

“Really?” I asked

“Yes”. He replied and then added for emphasis “I’m a Gorrilla.”

“No you are a human being” I answered.

“No Mummy, I’m a Gorrilla and a Monkey.” He then drops on all fours and begins to scamper.

I thought of what to do and suddenly, I got an idea.

“Ikem, where do Gorillas live?” I asked.

“In the Jungle” came his prompt response.

“Good, you are going to Jungle then.” I walked towards the door, picked up the keys and gestured for him to come. He stared at me a bit unsure.

“Mummy, I want to go to this Jungle.” He pointed towards the room where his Dad was sitted.

“No, you are going to that Jungle.” I pointed towards the door leading out of the flat and then started carrying him towards it. We got there and I started unlocking the door.

“No Mummy, I don’t want to go to the Jungle, I’m a human being!” He was shouting and wailing this time.

“But you just said that you are a Gorilla and a Monkey, and Gorillas live in the Jungle, human beings live in the house”

“Mummy I’m Not A Gorrilla, I’m a human being, I will stay in the house!” He was pleading.

At this point, I burst into laughter and locked the doors. He sank into a chair in the corridor, I could see the relief on his face as he stared at me, probably wondering if I really would have taken him to the Jungle.


Life With My Boy: ‘b’ is for ‘God forbid!’


You see that black stuff with wings spread out in the picture?

Yeah, the bat; here’s a little story about it.

My son just got a new picture book from one of his Aunts and we were reading through it. We got to the letter ‘b’ and he would either say the name of the picture or I would assist where he doesn’t know it…

Mum (pointing at the bat): B is for…
Son: God forbid!

Lol. I figured that someone must have shouted ‘God forbid’ when they saw a Bat, so my son simply assumed that that was the name of the animal.

I had my fair share of laughter first before teaching him that the name of the animal is Bat and not ‘God forbid’.


Such mistakes are better made at home than in school. Imagine if he had shouted ‘God forbid’ when his teacher shows him a Bat in school. Ha ha ha! I’m not sure she would have forgotten in a hurry.

Life With My Boy: This Boy o!

Imagine when you’ve taken time to teach your child that he or she is Royalty, a Prince/Princess, King/Queen. And then you even agreed with them that they are Superman/ whatever the girls claim and that they have Super Powers…


Okay, time to stop imagining.

I had actually done all that and was feeling super cool with myself, as per correct Mum, only to get to my son’s school recently and his classmates were telling me how he says that he is a Horse, a Dog, a Lion, a Cat and a Wild Animal! Jesus Christ!

Not only does he claim to be these things, he demonstrates what each of them does in CLASS! And to put the icing on the Cake, his teacher told me that he was offerring free Horse Rides on his back!

Free Horse Rides?

He obviously doesn’t know how much his school fees is, not to talk about other expenses. If he has decided to be a Horse instead of a Prince, he should at least be a little entrepreneurial and offer PAID horse rides. LOL.

I guess I have to go back to the drawing board and find another way of making this ‘I’m a King’ thingy enter his head. Which one is Wild Animal abeg?

It is well o!
