Freedom Fridays

Freedom Friday

It’s that time of the week…yeah you guessed right. It’s Friday and it Free!

Bill Wither’s song aptly describes the house without Sunshine (Veda) in it. Now she’s grown and I’m out. I miss her a lot but here a window into the world we shared when I stayed with them.

What’s Veda been up to?
She loves me carrying her and being kind of tired, I said to her “my baby will get angry with you o!
“The one in your stomach?” she enquired,
“Yes,” I replied and sat down still carrying her. She simply rolled her fingers in a ball and punched me in the stomach…to fight my baby or…I’d never know!
Got up to take a bath noticed someone was already in the bathroom. Lo, it was Sweetheart doing his thing. But I noticed a look in his eyes (somewhat downcast) and he didn’t greet. When I probed to know what was wrong since he normally doesn’t wake this early.
“I peed on the bed, so I came to change”.
Well, I’m yet to get home (from work) that means I haven’t heard the last of it…Veda’s version I mean. Wondering what she’ll tell me today because it was also a Christmas party, I bet she’s got lots to say…guess we’ll wait till I get home.

On my way back from work, I bought some apples for my 2 crew members (Sunshine & Sweetheart). Got home and asked how the school party went, what she brought back for me.
“Nothing” she replied, “they only gave us presents”. So I handed over the apples to her (she’s an apple lover) since Sweetheart didn’t want any. After saying thank you, she opened the bag, looked in and looked up at me “aunty, its only 3!”(Meaning I can’t share)
Later on she showed me her “Barbie” she won as 1st prize for reciting her poem (which she pronounces as ‘pohim’)

I need your opinion on something:

What would you do if you knew that someone was telling you a lie, whilst looking at you straight in the face? Want to know what I did? Check Freedom Friday next week.

What to do when you know you are being lied to? That’s tough – I guess it really depends on severity of the lie. I have insisted on knowing the truth in the past that I ended up with information too much that my head struggle to handle.

Look forward to reading how you deal with that one :).
