Mothers. We All Have Them!





Apologies for the delay in posting comments and posts. My faithful ipad finally gave up after 5 years of loyal service and almost four years of service to the blog. It did most things for me so I never bothered with a laptop. Well, all weekend I waited for a jinnee to hand me a laptop, iPad or whatever and as its yet to happen, I'll post from my phone for now. It's the most inconvenient thing ever but...

So yesterday was Mother's Day and everyone couldn't stop talking about their mums in the most colourful ways. Have you noticed how everyone's mother is the strongest, kindest, bravest mother in the whole world? LOL. 

I certainly think my mum is all that but even at my age I can hardly think about my mum and not remember the first ass whooping she gave me. My mum strongly believed in using the rod! 

It was one night, I must have been no more than 7 or 8 and my immediate older brother maybe 11. He was in the living room, I was in my daddy's room and each room in the house had a phone. We had a call and both picked up different phones but the caller obviously hung up because we only heard each other's voice. "Drop the phone" my brother said. "No you drop the phone" I challenged him. "Fuck you" he said. "Fuck you back" I retorted. "Both of you should come to my room right now", my mother's cool and stern voice boomed from the phone. 

Oops, she had picked up the one in her room!

We both marched solemnly there knowing what was to come but I never knew that that stick could hurt like the devil. Jehovah! My mum gave me 6 brutal strokes, 3 on each palm. I was jumping, crying, pleading, begging, making promises. I legit thought I was going to die. 

LOL. Mothers are the best though. 

Happy Mothers Day (in arrears) to all mothers. And to all the beautiful mums on the blog; Mallama, Tiwa, cccc, Clare, Miss Pynk, TNHW, J, Enjay, Miwa and everyone else, especially those trusting God for their own bundles of joy. 

Tell me about yours, and do you remember the first time she whooped you? Or wait, was your Mum the "use your words" type instead? Lucky you! πŸ˜‚

  1. Thanks, Thelma. I wish all females happy mothers' day, at one time or the other we've all played motherly roles even as children.

    The first time my mom beat me. It was with a bunch of broom as we didn't have any cane at home except she was going to break one out of the cane chairs.

    Result of the beating was a stick of broom got into my palm and had to be removed. Talk about double pain.

    Cause of beating was my discovery of a porn magazine in the house and then our older neighbour got hold of it. By evening, the whole house had seen it.

    Funny I can't remember her beating me again after that. I love her still. Very much.

  3. Happy Mothers day my dearest people . Just wanna know how many mothers day we have . Not that it's too much to celebrate our mom's. But it's confusing . I recall I wished my mom HMD recently before yesterday's Date.


    My mother , we nicknamed her "wounded Lion". Don't mess with her. She flogs like kilode. I recall telling my dad to send me to boarding school just to avoid my mom'.

    My siblings and I once asked my dad to confess to us if she is/ was truly our mom back in the days .Her flogging game was LIT.

    My elder Sister saw 99.9 . Her major punishment back then was making lots of pap and sitting us down to eat. Jezzz, we all hated pap cos of her.
    She really did sacrifice for us kids though. She would move the earth to ensure we were fed, clothed and went to school.

    I recall my mum traveling all the way to Benin and back to ensure I got admitted when Jamb kept withholding my result. I said I'd kill myself . She traveled went to see some uncles and came back with everything I needed to get set for Uniben Diploma. Robbers even attacked her . When we tell her of all her flogging she says she has no recollection. Hmmmm.

    If my Dad had handled us alone. I'm sure I won't even know how to do Nada. Cos he pampered us like eggs.I even thought I was all Buttered up until my mum showed us the other side of ajebutter to ajede Pakistan. LOL

    God bless our mothers men. They just do the impossible.

  5. Happy Mother's day to all the mothers out there but have we stopped to think about the mothers in the animal kingdom who get to watch their babies being eaten alive because they cldnt protect them from predators? Or the babies who watch their mums being slaughtered for meat by humans because we don't know that being vegetarian saves the ecosystem in the long run? I thought so. You all think life begins and ends with the human race.

    Lol. Happy Mother's day once again...

  8. Happy mother's day to all the mothers in here. I used to it wasn't my mum that gave birth to me cause of her harshness. However as the years rolled by and I began taking major decisions in my life, I discovered that everything she did was out of love. I really really love her.

  9. I grew increasingly detached from my dad while growing up due to the kind of beatings I got from him. Most of the time I got beat up for extremely minute reasons. My mum also beat me/us, but it wasn't anywhere close to the brutality of my dad.

    However there was this day my mum beat me up, even my dad had to rescue me. I was in Pri. 3, wasn't going for the extra lessons she paid for, and she found out. That night she tied up my hands and feet (I saw her doing this and was wondering what the hell was going on...it was looking like a movie). I remember hot lashes descending on me in quick succession with so much fury I screamed like I was being burnt alive.

    "Theresa you will kill this boy...you will kill this boy for me o!!"

    Wait...that was my dad(?). lol

    1. I'm just like this as well, except the part where your dad became sympathetic to the beating.

      Dad would clamour for more beating if necessary.

      Till tomorrow I still don't understand my father... Lol.

      We have a similar story Memphis, my mum didn't beat us a lot, that was my Dad's forte and he did it with passion πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

      Although my mum didn't beat us all the time, the few times she did were memorable. The first one I can remember;
      We had rented the movie Love Boat from the video club (or whatever they were called then) and we were impatient to watch it. She instructed Kabuoy and I to do our homework before watching the film then went to sleep. As soon as she shut the door, we sat down to watch the movie which turned out to be the stupidest movie I have ever seen till date, no head no tail (Ramsey Nouah and Genevieve). Mumsie came out toward the end of the movie and finished it with us and we all agreed it was a very stupid movie. She then asked about our home work and we started to stammerπŸ˜‚

      She was so upset, she found the nearest phone charger (Motorola I think) and made sure we never chose a Nigerian movie over school work againπŸ˜‚

      The second time I can remember was a hot slap in the kitchen when I was playing with candle instead of checking on the beans as instructed. My ears rang for the very first time in my lifeπŸ˜„

  10. My mom is late now,God bless her soul.
    But I think the first time my mom beat me was the day I collected the coins she usually keeps under my box without asking her.
    I have since learnt that it is also possible to steal from your family. lol

  11. My mum has never scolded me or used the rod on me but my Step-mom has gone all shades of Jack Bauer, Liam Neeson, all the Kung Fu movies you ever saw on my behind, face, hand everywhere πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ on me. Hard to choose the most memorable of them all. Lol

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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…

Shhhhhhh....

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 fiancΓ©? 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.
