Gradually Coming Back

Hmm....It's a great while and i seem not to know how to even make my way to blogospere.

I have been away because of this young man...

The experience has been out of this world. Didn't know Ididn't have the slightest idea about how babies came to this world and now I know I shouldn't have trusted all those biology textbooks. What they contain is not even up to a tip of the iceberg.

As a result of my experience I would say I have grown and matured more than any other time in my entire life. For example - 

  • I didn't use to like to carry children..but now i have no choice but to carry one.
  • I couldn't stand a baby cry before..but now i have find a solution to one.
  • I used to be selective about the kind of children I  allowed to come near me..but now i appreciate every kid I see either dirty or very smelling.
  • I never had sympathy for moms before but now...I give all the respect in the world to mothers.
  • Most beautiful of all, I am now a kinder person. that i am a kinder person, I plan to start a new blog on my experience as a mother because i realize that first time mothers know so little. A reason I have attributed to the fact that mothers rarely share experiences with single women. I also hope the blog will serve as a platform for mothers particularly young and working moms to share their hearts.

I am still working on the name for the blog and will be glad if you can drop suggestions....

Thank you.

How Did The 46 Returning Army Officers Lose Their Lives?

Were you about to tell me through an autocrash as a result of their vehicle colliding with an oil tanker? Yeah I know that. But what caused the collision? That is the puzzle

• Bad road?
• Bad weather?
• Bad vehicle?
• Bad driving?

We may want to let sleeping dogs lie particularly because of the affected family. But....shouldn’t there be a thorough investigation into why the accident happened? At least for tomorrow’s sake, so that we never record same incident.

Well on a second note, remembering what we could be like in this country, we never really care about lives. Or do we? Considering all the mishaps that have taken place on our NIGERIAN ROADS and no long term remedy has been put in place till date to avert them. As I also remember the infamous Ibadan-Ife road accident that happened sometime in 2000 caused by a tanker transporting fuel. The accident claimed lives of people commuting in more than 20 vehicles on both sides of the road........I remember this sadly because I can still vividly remember seeing the flame of burning bodies and metal rising from my room in the Post Graduate hall of O.A.U.

How many more people would we like to see dead before we find a lasting solution to the death traps we call roads?

Ps: I just had to come out of my hibernation and say something about this. For xxx’s sake, I’m about to have and raise a baby in Nigeria!

My 9 Month Project

Hi Guys,
I know I've been gone for a very long time.
Well, i guess my diasappearance can be forgiven as it is due to a 9-month project that i have embarked on (good luck to those who don't understand). I may not be able to update as often as I should. However, i would love to read from you via your comments and believe you would also drop your words of prayer for me.
