I Did It. I Finally Did It!!!

Guys, I was already half way to dream land when I saw this picture and my heart turned to mush. This is Ik & Sonia Ogbonna's baby and he is the most precious thing ever!

I can't stop staring at this picture. I hope it makes you smile too. 

Speaking of babies, my little nephew who's not really a baby anymore called my name for the first time today. Lord, I almost cried. I've been taking care of the tot since he was a teeny tiny spec of a baby and I've been there all the way and was the one with him the second he cut his first tooth, took his first step, said his first word, ate his first solid, crawled for the first time, sat up for the first time, stood for the first time... It's no wonder that we have such a strong bond that even his mum is envious of sometimes *tongue out mama*. 

Today I was heading out (I finally did it!!!), when we heard him say "wado wado wado". We weren't sure what he was saying until he ran and clung tightly to my legs, hugging me. 

Lord I love my boys, I love that kid. I'm almost sobbing just thinking about it. 

So off I went... For three years I avoided doing something I'd considered odious and terribly dreadful. Tonight I finally said yes and stepped out of my comfort zone, and I'm so glad I did. The magic really does happen outside our comfort zone. 

Well.. I just wanted to make someone smile. If that baby's picture doesn't make you smile then you're beyond hope, I'm done, I can't help you. LOL. 

Good night hunnays. God bless. 

For those still up, talk to me. Say the first thing that comes to your mind, tell me how you've been, how you are, what's going on, or simply blow someone a good night kiss. 

I'm blowing Tari a goodnight kiss... Thanks for a beeyoootiful night.

Make fun plans for the day for yourself! Cheers!

    12. Happy Birthday Michie girl.It's your day to be happy and gracious so don't weigh yourself down with negative thoughts. let's hope hubby comes through in a surprising and awesome manner. I'd advice you discuss with hubby on your discontent in some matters affecting your marriage. Do have a splendid day today and always.

      Congrats Thelma on stepping out of your comfort zone. Pray this step brings you closer to your desires.

  5. Aww Thelma I can imagine how mushy you'd have been when your nephew called your name.

    I had a similar experience with a friend's baby! I was overawed! But his mum was more bothered with him not saying auntie before my name! *rme*. Really?!!

    1. Lmao. Your friend is hilarious. Can you imagine that? LOL.

  6. Happy birthday Michie, I pray that God blesses you more than you ever imagine. You've stepped into the 4th decade of your life and it's by the Grace of God. I join you in saying thank You God for His abundant blessings.
    Meanwhile I'm curious about something, how did you just know that your hubby was gon mess up? What has he done in the past to cause such horrible expectations?
    There's something I read and put into practice when I traveled, it might not apply to your situation but give it a try and it might just work. There's power in our expectations, sometimes what we get is what we attract to ourselves even without knowing it. Please forgive the long comment by hand done dey pain me sef but make I just try finish....
    There was this lady in an institution where I worked, from the day I stepped in nobody had any good thing to say about her. They said she was nasty, stingy etc but I decided that I was gonna expect her to be nice to me. And the first time I met her I addressed her as if she was the nicest person in the world and to everybody's surprise she was nice to me. To the point that everybody in the institution started to use me to get things from her cos she could never say no to me. We ended up becoming very close friends. So I went on and decided to change other people's perception of her, I told them that she's nasty to them cos they expect her to be and no one takes their time to understand her. Before I left them she had become one of the most loved madams in the place, just because people changed the expectations and which in turn changed their perception.
    Expect good from your hubby and you might just get better or best.
    Have a blessed day darling!

    1. Errrr Steele.... *agamaeyesonyou*

    2. With the kind of man I married ur expectations will be met with surprises. And I know for sure there's no gift or anything. Thanks for the messages and wishes. God bless u all.

  7. Very cute baby!

  8. Happy birthday Miche girl....

    That baby is adorable. And steele's comment gave me something to think about.

  9. Cute baby! He's cute for days *in Linda's voice*

  10. This "long" break that was suppose to be relaxing and refreshing turned out to be so stressful... I feel like taking 2 days off sef. let me feel tired of my house for like 2 days so I can appreciate this daily hustle. I'm sooo tired... my body aches and I still have to travel tomorrow. Sadly, tuesday is just by the corner... *sigh* I should have spent my holiday in Lagos. Locked myself up in my room wiv plenty plenty "ijekuje" to eat :( *breathes in and out* it is well...

    Meanwhile.. mitchie girl, hope you had fun eh? Just forgive hubby jare... some of these men don't just know how to remember these things. my parents would celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in June, and they must have been together even before then but he still forgot her birthday this year, forgot mine(mom had to remind him) I had to remind him of sunshine's own last year. Loool. So just let it slide jare... Be happy!

    1. In november sorry... I was half asleep when I typed this. loool.

  11. Happy Birthday Michie girl. God bless you with the good things of life. Amen

  12. Michie- you need to talk to your husband. Many people mean well but they onviously have short comings. My mother has four children non of which are adopted, so that means she has four children which were delivered in hospitals - she doesn't remember birthdays. Most times one of us calls her to say, "any plans for xyz's birthday".

    Michie my point in try and work with the husband you have. If it takes reminding him for a week before and dropping not so subtle hints- it might be in your favor. I have a friend who has an amazing but forgetful husband, so at the beginning of her birthday month she sends him an email everyday till her birthday of what her expectations are- he executes them to a T. it may not be romantic but it works. So please forgive him and reconsider how the situation can be salvaged.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
