The last few days have been both a whirlwind and a blur. But let's talk about you instead. How have you been? I feel so grateful when posts have been erratic but y'all still check in, and when I don't post I can't help the nagging feeling that there's something I should be doing, makes it really difficult for me to relax, y'know? Like I was paid to post and I'm not delivering. LOL. Meanwhile shout out to Subomi, just when mummy-Omoperosola was becoming a cherished memory, she made an appearance and put a smile on my face. However I must confess I was a bit nervous. What would she think, would it be the same blog she knew, would she be disappointed, would she go through the posts and be glad to be back, or would she scroll through and then stroll off??? There I go overthinking when I should just say WELCOME BACK Subomi, We missed you!
I'm in my village at the moment, I've been here for the last few days and believe me ehn, e no easy. This is actually why I've been MIA. When you're in the village it's easy to get cut off from the world. It's even more challenging when you travel with three little children; I've never had Prozac but I think if there's ever a time I'd need it, that time is now. But at this point I'd settle for codeine, I'm a nervous wreck!
Seriously now though, based on some happenings in the last few days, I'm going to ask some questions and I'm hoping everyone can pitch in and share their thoughts.
1. Does someone who is successful and/or rich have a responsibility/duty to take care of the welfare of some less-privileged family members?
2. Honestly, when you see an unmarried woman in her mid to late 30s (or 30s generally), do you think there must be something wrong with her/her attitude that's the reason she's unmarried? (I was conversing with someone who said he met and loved a very beautiful and fantastic lady in her mid 30s. But for some reasons he couldn't marry her, "besides if was so fantastic then why was she still single...?")
3. Do baby-mamas have a place in the father's family? Are they entitled to recognition and/respect from his family? For instance if after a fling/affair/relationship a woman gets pregnant and has the baby, should she be present at the baby-daddy's family's social events? And when she happens to be present, is she entitled to be acknowledged by the baby-daddy's family members even when he has moved on and is now married to someone else? Should she even attend such occasions when he's married someone else and moved on? (Would your answer be different if the "child" in question is a grown adult who can attend these family gatherings without his/her mother present?)
These are all current real life situations and I itch to know what you think. Answer one, two or all, I just need answers!
