And 5 came calling….

Standard

Again, he added another year and we were apart, like last year’s. I made online presence with him, made sure he had fun…you could tell he was super excited about being 5! Maybe, he’s already counting all the responsibilities or wishing that he’d meet up with his sister. I haven’t asked yet and might just let that slip. He woke up in a mood to draw, I’m yet to see what he drew to celebrate this milestone, but the steady gaze in his eyes as he played said one thing, ‘my baby is growing up’.

From wanting his hair to be AFRO like his dad (which was cut off on his birthday), to doing the break-dance and other moves, whilst making sure I watch every one he makes, as he jumps up and down the sitting room; whispering comforting words to my ears “the sky is your limit, mummy” and contesting with Oba for his babe…he calls me ‘Babes and sweetheart’ to keeping an eye on Mmeme’s baby. We went visiting and he positioned himself beside Mmeme and the baby, reason being I want to keep an eye on her!. You are such a joy to have around!

I’m looking forward to receiving them back shortly. But until then, I celebrate King-Earl Ethan Emmanuel and I’m grateful that God chose us to be the bearer of such gift. Need I say more, I yob you my baby and like you always say in codes “so much, so much”.

#ThankfulThursday – Love of Family

Standard

Sometimes things happen to you and you realise that all you truly have is FAMILY. I came to know that early enough and I don’t joke with mine. Slowly but surely, my Family has grown sooooo large and our surnames are sometimes different. Well, like all families, we have our moments of fun, fights, laugh and craze – but the bond is always there.
To all my family members out there (you know yourselves), this is for you! ❤

#FreedomFriday – Food is it!

Standard

Okay, today I’ll let the pictures do the talking. This is a collage of the various foods I ate in the recent past, whether celebrating or just eating with family. My sister Mimi made the fisherman soup and I made the Afang. ❤ By the way my President (FK), there’s periwinkle in the Afang 🙂
