Worried Blog Reader Asks...

Quick question BVs. I just resumed work from maternity leave. I have a 2yr old and my baby is 6 months. I have two maids but one is more like a baby sitter. I'm ok with them but I don't feel safe leaving my babies with strangers but I have to work and my husband works out of town. I installed a nanny cam in my house but I don't know whether to tell them that I have cameras in the house or just keep quiet and be watching them. What do you think?


  1. What's the point of installing a camera if you are going to tell them you did?

    1. Not a sensible comment. Read Clare and the anon's comment below. U too chrisyinks.

  2. Your maternity leave was 6 months? Where do you work?

    This is easy. No need to tell them. Just be watching them. Then come home one day and say "Patience. Why did you beat my child?" She will think you are a witch and start to fear

    Question - The nanny cam works with electricity or battery?

    Nannies aint so dumb. They will know you are watching them.


  3. the more important question is not what we think, but why you are leaving your children with people you don't trust. So why are you doing that? You can always put working on hold till you find people you feel more comfortable with. otherwise, stay out of work till they're grown enough.

    1. seconded. i resumed work one year after my baby was born

    2. You never know the state of finances. Not all families can thrive on one income esp in Nigeria of today.
      Poster...don't tell them you installed a will help you to assess their true characters.

  4. They must realise there is a nanny cam. Thats how you put them in order. Do not wait for your child to be beaten or badly treated before they know.

    As a matter of fact show them the videos and how far the cam can reach . Ensure that the kids are not taken to rooms other than where the cam can be viewed.

    You shoulf still find someone you can trust if your insticnts are warning you because having a cam isnt enough and can never take the placenof you.

    How often do you view the cam and can you does it allow you hear what they say?

    Please be guided.

  5. Read my lips madam....go right this minute and tell your helps that you have installed cameras at every corner of the house even outside and in the bathroom.
    Prevention is better than cure!! What if u play back the video and discover a help smashed your child's head on the floor therefore causing brain damage? How do u plan on reversing that? Pata pata u will send the help away but you are still stuck with a damaged child. I wud rather put the fear of God in them by telling them abt the cameras so they can think twice abt their actions before trying any rubbish in the 1st place.

  6. Please where did you get the nanny cam? Is it working well for you?

    I will be returning to work 3 months after I have my baby and leaving my toddler and baby at home. Please help!

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.

One More Post...


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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
