That 1st Birthday Charade...





On Sunday Kon and his family threw a birthday party for his two boys who just turned 1 and 4 and happen to be birthday mates. Cool, right? 

Sunshine, Sasha bonΓ© and I were there to partayyyyy. 

Sunshine was so eager to see Kon's wife and we spent a lot of time trying to scope her out. LOL. Mrs Kon is so young and sweet and cute btw. And Kon, forget all this noise and badt guy levels he forms on the blog, Kon really seems to be the kind of husband with whom you'd have peace and joy. They both look so young and playful, with what seems to be a very fun, easy going relationship. Guys, they're so cute together! 

We had a really good time. I talked to Sunshine a lot and it's going to be the last time. I don't like all these people that will just be nodding and nodding and you'd be talking and talking, you won't even know when you tell them all your secrets 😳. Sunshine, I'm unfriending you

LOL. 

I also got to meet the lovely MFA of Lifetitude's blog, where I "discovered" Kon. Turns out Kon is her husband's younger brother. Waaawu! 


Anyways, We were debating on the wisdom of throwing 1st year birthday parties. Some people think it's a must-do, some think it's a waste of time and money because the child doesn't even know what's going on. My sister thought so too and didn't throw her second son a 1st birthday party. However few months down the line a lot of people started to query her about it, saying that it is terribly wrong. My mum even claimed that my elder brother was very quiet and anti-social until they did a 1st birthday party for him, and suddenly he blossomed; BOOM! *Yimu*. During the party (my nephew's) I was just looking around and thinking what a weist, this infant doesn't even know what's going on, see how lost and confused he looks. LOL. Yet, I can't deny that the 1st year of a child's life is truly worth celebrating. It really is.

Anyways where do you stand; 1st birthday party, a must have or a waste? And tell us why you think so, I'm planning ahead πŸ˜‰.

  1. Nne, I'm of the strong view that 1st birthday parties are a must. The party doesn't even have to be big to the extent of canopy parties, it can be a small celebration within the immediate family. Just make sure there's presence of cakes and pictures.
    Infact the 1st birthday takes priority over other birthdays, you can choose not to celebrate them. For crying out loud your Child/ren made it to his first year, that's survival.
    At work, one of my colleagues was forming he didn't want to celebrate his daughter's 1st birthday (1st issue o, can you imagine). Omo I was among the people that gave him all the reasons why he should. He gave religious reasons (Muslim) and all the blah blah he said. The funny guy later did something small without inviting us. yeye guy.
    Infact Thelma I can write an article on why a child's 1st birthday must be celebrated. Also with these few points of mine I hope I have convinced you and not confused you.

    1. I totally get why you'd say that looking at this picture, but funny enough Sunshine pulls it off without the makeup and jewelry. You see her and rarely notice the absence of all those things because she's really cute just like you said. I'm actually quite jealous πŸ˜’

    4. It's amazing how our eyes see what we've conditioned our hearts to push, there I was telling myself what my next move would be if I was that young and available.
      Sunshine is beautiful and attractive, earrings or make up would ruin the raw beauty that some of us admire.

  12. I've always thought first birthdays were a waste of money if done big. Maybe for family only but invest money for the children.

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!
