    The most memorable moment with my child was d day she came out of me. Immediately she came out of me, and I heard her cry, I fell in love instantly. And d first thing I said was ‘thank u Jesus’. The nurse wrapped her up and gave her to me, as I held and gave her a kiss, I knew God has answered me. Because of her I am called ‘A MOTHER’ . I am blessed to be her mother.
    God bless u child, mummy loves you.

    One memorable day was when I offered to gist with my girl and the moment I was acting like a gossip partner, I got a whole lot of unforgettable information. Another memorable moment was when we had to take music lesson together as classmate.

    My baby boy used to Hiccup in the stomach. Started when I was six months pregnant, I felt so close to him, whenever he did that, He is fifteen months now and I realized that when he laughs so hard he hiccups, and it struck me!means he was listening to my every word in the stomach, and he hiccuped when i said something he felt was funny.

    First of all, I want to thank Emirates for this great opportunity. The day Emirates started this exciting initiative Mother and Child Memories Contest i.e May 19th was our 4th wedding anniversary #Thankful!

    The most memorable day with my son was when he wanted me to write 1 2 3 etc for him. I was engrossed in a novel and he was shouting Mummy…Mummy…Mummy all of a sudden, he just said madam. I was like where did you get that one from. Is your mummy your madam now? And we just couldn’t stop laughing because we both knew all he wanted was my undivided attention. I still chuckle whenever I remember that weird but precious moment. I love me some of his witty and intelligent moments. He always finds his way into my heart.

    I feel if you really wanna win. Make your story engaging. Something like this: My son of about 4 years came into my room this lovely Saturday morning. This was what ensued between us:
    Son: Daddy,
    Me: Yes boy
    Son: Is it true that God planted a baby in Aunty Simi’s tummy?
    Me: (baffled) Yes, but who told you that?
    Son: It was Uche, that our neighbor who wears only singlet
    Me: Hmm, what were you discussing that led to such a point?
    Son: I mentioned that I wanted my tummy to be big like hers
    Me: Really?
    Son: Yes Daddy. Don’t you like it?
    Me: I don’t know. But, do you like it?
    Son: Yes, I do.
    Me: But you are a boy.
    Son: I know but I could be a girl. Remember, you mentioned that I can be whatever I want to be.
    Me: Really?
    Son: Yes, Dad.
    Me: But….
    This story makes it easy to understand and let your reader flow. Of course, there are forms of writing. Just make it engaging. Meanwhile, success in your stories. We will be glad to read the humor our kids create in our every day lives.
    PS: I am not a father neither am I married. So, I can’t post any story. But I am a big uncle.

    The most memorable moment with my son was the day he insisted on helping me cook spaghetti. He had been bothering me for a few days that he wanted to eat spaghetti so I eventually agreed, On putting the pasta into the pot and boiling, I was putting condiments in, I turned to cut some onions and my son took the small container of thyme and emptied it into the pot! and he said Mummy i have put more spice, only for me to turn around and see what he had done. I tried to scoop the thyme out of the pot but couldn’t achieve much.
    I started laughing as I saw the pasta turn green! As green as it was, when it was done, we ate it with relish.. Since then, no more turning my back on him when he’s in the kitchen with me.

    The day I gave birth to my son was quiet a memorable one for me, I cried because I never knew such beauty and innocence could come out of me…. I brought forth a life and it felt good.

    Another memorable moment after then was when we visited the clinic at 4mths, he weighed over 8kg, you won’t believe my excitement. my doctor advised on a C section because his growth was restricted in the womb, I gave birth to him at 38 weeks and he weighed just 2.5kg, very little. I smiled so hard tears rolled down my cheek. I always thought he would be a tiny baby. He’s so big now…….

    I’ve got 3 amazing kids and trust me when I say lots of amazing stories to tell about each one of them. On a bitter/sweet note though, I remember how I had to leave my 2nd son to go to law school. He was just 8 months old. It absolutely broke my heart. I came back 3 months later and was skeptical of his recognizing me. Guess what? He did!!! The smile he gave me still brings smilessssss to my face till date.

    The most memorable day for me happened just few weeks ago. I was alone with my daughter of 2+ years at night. Her dad wasnt back from work then,suddenly i started having a terrible stomach pain. Luckily my daughter was still awake and immediately she noticed i was on the floor holding my stomach,she came to my side. She started asking me what was wrong? And in her own language was suggesting different things that could be wrong with me(like i do to her),to the extent that she asked me if she could bring me “agbo jedi”(which is a concussion in yoruba for pile). To cut the long story short,i vomitted that night and couldnt stand up until i emptied all i ate. My daughter stood by me and help bring the bucket i vomitted in and water. And she didnt go to bed until her dad came back from work. I was amazed because she’s just 2+ and i could count on her at such an early age. The feeling i get each time i remember that night is priceless.

    The most memorable moment with my son was one sunny afternoon some months ago, I had a very low moment; I was quite overwhelmed with motherhood, having to take care of the kids alone most times, frustrated with not yet making a headway in my business, I was finding it difficult to get a job that would allow me to be home on time to attend to the kids, no career fullfilments yet…
    I was just feeling very low, occupied with these thoughts, then a tear ran down my cheek. I didn’t know my 3 and a half year old son was watching, then he said;
    “Mummy are you happy?”
    I gave a weak smile and said “yes”. Then I asked, “why do you ask” , he said, “because I don’t want you to be sad. ”

    At that moment I smiled , was grateful to God for His gifts.
    That moment meant a lot to me, because it assured me that everything would be fine.

    I have just been made a single parent as a result of my intense DV experience.My most memorable moment this season, with my children is the day they started school a few weeks ago after missing 2nd term because their dad threw us out a few months ago and the fear of him harming us was frightening.I was so excited to be paying their fees and not having to wait for their dad who has been recalcitrant and my 3year old son said to me “Mummy you are the best mummy in the whole wide world”!For me that was more than enough solace for all I had been through since last year when we were u lawfully thrown out!

    Life is full of memorable events especially for mums but mine was when I was on my way to Lagos with my 4 month plus baby.
    I was waiting for my flight with a friend when a mutual friend of ours came and tried to give my baby a hi five but then he called her bluff by saying she was way too young to respond.My friend even said she would run if you she responded.
    To our utter amazement, our friend tried again and gbam! my daughter responded to his greeting with an upstretched hand.
    I am sure we were the center of attention at the airport that evening due to our screams.

    The most memorable day is the day I gave birth to my baby boy. my joy knew no bound because I was pregnant with twins but one died in my first trimester and one of the Doctors suggested that they should flush the pregnancy out. But thank GOD for keeping my baby even without the flushing. Immediately he came out to this world I felt like a complete woman.

    One of the memorable moments for me was when my 4 years old son offered to do the dishes. I was surprised and asked how he would achieve it, he said he would climb on the kitchen stool for height, put some liquid soap in a bowl and start washing.
    Thinking he was joking, he set to work started with the cups, then the plates and wanted to wash the pots , I had to step in and asked that I help with that.{ all the while the kitchen floor was almost flooded with water}
    Very excited with what he had done he said mommy I will wash my pant and singlet next. I said no before you use the whole detergent in the house!

    My most memorable day was a week after i had my second son. I kept him wrapped on the bouncer only for me to come back and saw him drenched with water, i asked my first son what happened and he said in a lovely voice ‘my baby is thirsty and i gave him water’. I was touched by his act and couldnt forget that day

    The most memorable moment for me was the first time I heard my 3 year old daughter pray for me. All she said was, “Father,bless Mummy in Jesus name I pray”. I was stunned,grabbed her and gave her a tight hug and a kiss. As a single mum,the simple fact that my daughter appreciates all I do and even prays for me is more than a blessing.

    Most memorable day for me, was when three of my kids aged 5yrs, 3 yrs and 8months, all took ill same night. My youngest son and my second daughter were running high body temperature, while my eldest daughter was vomiting . I nursed them all night to the very best of my ability. I was exhausted, tired, still in my work clothes, carrying my youngest child (who refused to be dropped, from the moment i got home). Attending to three little kids all night is not any small feat as my husband traveled. Out of no where, i heard 2 little voices praying, the prayer went thus, Oh lord heal my sister and my baby brother and myself, so that mummy can sleep as she is very tired. Tears naturally flowed from my eyes, just knowing that my eldest daughter as young as she is, can have my back at such a young age.

    My son will be 5 months old on 28th May 2016. I’ve had many memorable moments with him as a first time mom but the one that has left an indelible mark on my mind happened recently.

    On Saturday, 21st May, it began to rain quite heavily in the morning. My son was sleeping on my bed. Whenever there was a sound of thunder, my baby would wake up, search for my in the room and once our eyes met, he’d smile and go back to sleep. This happened about 5 times and each time it thundered, I’d glance over to him and he’d wake up, look for me, smile at me and go right back to sleep, as if to say “My mum is here, I’m safe and all is well with the world”. He slept all through the rain that morning.

    The implicit trust that my son has in me, even at this tender age is one I never want to breach.

    Everyday with my son is memorable he is now 17months by the grace of God. I will never forget the 1st day he came back home with us after having to stay in NICU for 10days extra days after delivery as he was born premature. The feeling was unreal as we got back home to meet balloons and congratulatory messages tears of joy and excitement knowing that this gift from God is mine to keep forevermore Amen

    MY 2 year old son loves music. He can sing in a variety of languages, Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa and he even sings in zulu. He also loves the guitar and will use any object he finds as his imaginary guitar, this includes pencils, pens, rulers, cutlery, the window squeegee e.t.c.

    One Sunday while we were at church, the choir started singing a special song and my son immediately turned to me and said, “guitar”. So I reached into my bag and brought out my notebook and handed it over to him. He used my notebook as his guitar strumming and bobbing his head to the beat, His Dad was in the Spirit and picked up a bottle of water and started strumming along to the song. Suddenly my son looked at me and said : “Mummy Guitar” He reached into my bag and gave me a sheet of paper which I promptly started using as my guitar. At one point I got tired and put the paper back in bag but my son picked it out again and handed it back to me.
    So my son, my self and my husband sat down in the pews strumming imaginary guitars and bobbing our heads along to the song the choir was singing. The song must have lasted 6 minutes or more.

    That’s just one of my most memorable moments.

    I bless the day I had each one of them. They are such wonderful kids and I always tell them to read their books very well because I always want to pose for the world to see how proud I am on their school prize giving days and they have never failed me. Prize giving days have always been made memorable for me by my priceless gifts.
