    This Sunday I woke up late, rushed my Nanny and baby to have a bath and get ready for church. We achieved that I record time 30mins and I felt I was good to go. My 19month old wanted to keep watching carton but I switched off the tv and off we went. I had just driven past our estate gate when my Nanny said… Aunty we have to go back . Am like for what , we are late and she says ” baby has popped and it’s so watery that it seeped out from his diaper, stained his short and shirt and also stained her dress. Chai… I was angry and speechless. On getting back home and climbing the stairs my son was laughing at my angry face. I couldn’t help but smile… In my mind we got ready on time now this.
    With children you should be ready for the unexpected and be patient… No amount of vex will make you kill your child so why vex. Lol.

    My daughter is an amazing 3years going on 4. She is very smart, lovable, adorable and vocal. One experience i hold dear was i was alone in the house and unknowingly she is back from an outing with her aunties. She rushed into the house while i was dressing up and she screamed…..’Daddy, close your bumbum’. and for a while, i was shocked.

    What i have noticed is, most times we correct our children and they also demand we live by examples. God would help us.

    My daughter saw me counting and arranging some currency notes sometime ago, she then came to me and said we all do not have respect for money. I asked her how? She the send large amounts like a thousand, two thousand, five thousand and so on are supposed to be accorded with respect. She said they shouldn’t be called the same way we calm 100 naira or 50 naira. For instance 1000 should be called ” brother 1000″. 2000 ” aunty 2000 “. By so doing we will accord them enough respect because of their value. She will turn 7 by july

    My Amazing Son is a 15months. Before he turned One, each day came with a lesson for me as a mother.

    The first time his father bought him A ball to keep he busy, they played together with the ball that day. My husband repeatedly said ‘goal’ and ‘a goal’ while they were playing. Fast Forward to the part where we all slept at night, I was in a deep sleep when I heard ‘A goal’ (in an infant’s voice, my child hadn’t started to pronounce words at this time so I wasn’t quick to think he was the one). To My greatest Shock when I opened my eyes It was my Boy Saying ‘A goal’ at about 3:30 am in the early hours of the morning. He eyes were still sleepy and he still kept saying ‘A goal’ till I put him to sleep again.

    On one occasion I Walked into the room and saw my 12month old (at the time) diligently and seriously ironing the floor like his next meal depended on it (thankfully there no Light and the iron wasn’t even plugged). I was amazed and amused at the same time because I wouldn’t have figured that he was mature enough to grasp little things. On another Occasion, it was the cotton bud he was attempting to clean his ear with all by himself.
    I can go on and on.

    In raising tomorrow’s leaders, we should be careful about things we say and do in their presence. they have been sent to earth with very high IQ. Let them see things we want them to imitate and portray, tell them the right things, speak the right words around them. If a parent keeps saying ‘You are stupid’ to a child, the child will take in these words, sonner or later these words will just proceed out of your child’s mouth with free cause and unhindered.
    See training a child as Garbage in, Garbage out, wrong values with only dish out wrong and even worse values because they will have to do these wrong things better than you. We all have to be guided.

    My son’s name is Ireoluwamide Sonaike. He is a very smart, handsome, strong and ever smiling boy. One funny thing he does is, if you caution him from doing something and he wants to do it again, he will look at you if you are smiling or frowning, once he sees u are frowning, he smiles adorably and u cant help but laugh. I noticed that he already knows how to read the “eyes” (the Yoruba land mother’s eye *smile*), so he tries not to do what you say he shouldn’t do. He is just 13months old.

    Most time its not about beating, you can correct a child even just with a look and you child will understand, that is if you communicate with that child often.

    Thanks for this great opportunity Bella Naija

    instagram handle @honeyposh1. I have the most amazing 8 month old ever, permt me to say that.
    Though he has not started talking he is hilarious.
    firstly he wakes up in the morning and completely ignores his dad cause he knows he is not getting any food there, when he is done he goes over to him and gives him a toothless smile, now that’s genius.
    We went for his medicals recently and the doctor made an attempt to remove his cloth, my son gave him a very stern look, all the nurses joked that the doctor might receive a slap.
    His grandma took him out one day and she put some live chicken beside him thinking he is going to run only for my son to grab the chicken by the neck and attempt to kiss it.
    Put cartoon on for my son mba, but let wizkid music come on and he will be so transfixed ehen,

    My son, Oyeleke, is 2 years and 5 months old. He began attending school in January this year,

    While we are not very fanatical about religion, I always try to filter the kind of music I listen to, the movies I watch etc while my son is around me. I try to preserve his innocence for as long as possible.

    So you can imagine my suprise when one day he came home from school and was singing “O sha pra pra”. I said to him “stop it, children of God don’t sing that.” He said “okay mummy” and sang some other songs. A few days later he came up to me and said “mummy, I want to sing sha pra pra”. I said no. He kept asking and I kept saying no till I finally gave in and told him to sing it. He sang “o sha pra pra!” … Just that one line, sung in the sweetest voice ever and he smiled with such deep satisfaction, I had to smile along with him.

    I’ve learnt that much as we try to shelter our children, we can’t keep them naive. They have to interact with the society around them. It’s up to us as parents to give them the tools to filter the external influences and stay strong to their beliefs and value system.

    I have a 3 year old her name is Lisa and she’s always present when I’m changing her 7months old sisters’ diaper, so one day I was pressed and told her to watch her sister that I was going to the toilet, while I was in the toilet her sister pooped her Pampers and she went in, took a new diaper and Vaseline, remove the previous Pampers and splashed the poop on the chair and applied half of the Vaseline on her butt and wore her a new Pampers, when I got back to them, she gave me the Pampers and said ‘Mummy trash it’ oh boy! I scrubbed the chair for a whole week before I was convinced the stain was gone, I learnt never to leave you kid unattended or with a toddler, anything could have happened.

    On Sunday which was the children day, I took my kids out to celebrate it with them. They were really happy cos they had lots of fun as they ate and danced as much as they before capping it up with dancing. On getting back home, I asked my son, 6 yrs old, what he would like to eat, and to my amazement, he replied with ‘but am fasting now I don’t want to eat anything’ and we all burst into laughter. So,he actually knew that there is fasting going on after taking all the food and drinks at the party. The moral of the story is that children are always conscious of what is going on around them even when they seem not to.

    my son is a year and 6months old, he has this special kind of hair cut tgat get people wondeting how he seats at tge salon because of his age so each time we step out together people always love to come close or carry him, at first he will smile at you and give you that welcoming look but once you come closer enough or make any attempt to carry him, he picks the next available flight through the use of his legs ,locates and holds me then starts smiling at whoever that wanted to carry or touch him …
    if you give him anything outside he will collect it and give it straight to me, no matter what it is, at times he will look away.
    The good thing about this is if he grows with this attitude, he will curtail accepting stuffs from strangers that way also he will grow to be okay with what he has no matter or big or little.

    My son did something wrong when my mum was around for omugwo. She was carrying the baby and mum said she was going to get a Cane to spank him and he quickly replied saying grandma sit down and carry the baby. Lol so grandma should do what she came to do.

    My daughter name is Oluwatoni Odubiyi, she will be four (4) August 1st 2018, She has two cousins that she’s very close to Iremide and Olaoluwa, anytime she refuses her food or medication, i always tell her Iremide and Olaoluwa are eating or taking their medication, immediately she opens her mouth and takes. So her cousin names are magical to her taking instruction. My daughter can bring out her school books 100 times that she wants to write, i mostly tell her to return her book so it doesn’t get torn. This particular day, after several times of bringing up her books i told her to return it, she then told me ‘Mummy, Iremide and Olaoluwa are doing their homework now o” i busted into laughter. She said it so innocently and i said you’ve won this time and i had to allow her access to her books. The moral is, we should allow them be and not start comparing them to other children.

    My Son’s name is Chibuchi Amirize.
    Let me share what happened recently?, during mothers’ Day… I called my mum on the phone to wish her happy mothers’ day, when I was done speaking with her, I gave my 3yrs son the phone to speak with my mum, after wishing her happy mothers day, I told my son …
    Me: Bubu oya wish me happy mothers’ day naww??
    Bubu: No you are not a mother ?
    Me: watt!!!???what do you mean?
    Bubu: you are not a mother, you are a mummy??????
    Me: burst laughing and began to explain who a mother is…
    But sincerely I have been wondering why the little boy thinks am not a mother ….maybe He feels anyone that looks older, ties wrapper and cautions them firmly is a mother?
    While anyone that wears skimpy dress, makes up, plays with him ,looks younger is a mummy??….
    Mothers pls make una put mouth for the matter???….At the same time , I think , its not his fault, he came into this world and saw a young girlie mummy, unlike me that saw a mother figure mummy already if u know what I mean???..mummy that ties wrapper 24/7…., head always covered, ??…chaii children of nowadays??…
    But whatever be the case I know one day he will understand better??

    So I have a three years old daughter. Her name is Toki.
    On this particular day i did laundry and i was sorting out the clothes. I kept putting things in their respective places and she wanted to assist me but I turned down her offer. She asked why? I simply told her she’s not smart enough to do it.
    Minutes later we had a visitor, so I quickly did my sorting and mistakenly kept my bra in her drawer compartment.
    I got in with the visitor who was a male, we got talking, way into our discussion my daughter screamed from the room running towards the parlor. Upon her arrival she said “mommy come and take your breast from my drawer! That is not where your breast should be!! Mommy is not smart. I was embarrassed, I couldn’t even explain it to my guest he looked more embarrassed self.
    Latter that night I taught her the difference between bra and breast (hopefully she has gotten it).
    On another occasion, I was breastfeeding her younger brother who is 7months old. We had a guest and after exchanging pleasantries with my hubby, they went on to greet her and ask after her mom.
    My daughter response:- mommy is inside the room.
    Guest:- what is she doing, tell her we are around.
    My daughter response:- Torera (her younger brother) is eating mommy. Mommy can’t come out.
    It was spooking at the same time hilarious.

    Lessons:- I learnt never to underestimate children’s ability to learn and understand things. I began to teach her earnestly every words and vocabulary, explained necessary things to her and lastly often answer all her questions quickly and in details.
    My mistakes before was, I always ignored her whenever she asked questions or sparingly explained things to her because I felt she couldn’t comprehend it or its not necessary.
    But I am amazed at how much children’s brain can comprehend…

    My son is 3months old and I am a first time parent. It is a beautiful feeling being a parent. My experience in parenting so far.
    There are times when he’s awake and I almost feel frustrated and all I want is for him to just go to sleep and when he is asleep, I would go to his crib and stand there looking at him and I will be missing him and would want for him to wake up so I can hold him again.
    Lesson learnt: no matter how weird I feel or how much rest I desire, I can’t stay away from my baby.
