I Can't Believe Its 6 Years, My ReBirth... Whoop!


I first met my SWEETHEART this day, 6 years ago... And they had told me then, that I wasn't going to pop him like I imagined. Somehow I skipped reading those bits in the 'P' books I had invested tons of money buying to prepare myself for D Day.

Dang! I wept... I wept for my little tiny 'P'... I was worried his big head will cost my P a fortune. Not that the P down there isn't worth much, but I was actually worried more for my (P)ocket, than for the (P)inky in my (P)anties. I wouldn't be the first woman to have mine slacked, would I? Hahaha. Well, we had planned for a normal delivery which was already exorbitant.

Multiply that, by 600%. Ray started costing us a whopping fortune, right from the delivery room. Chai! Spending 550,000 Naira in delivery fees 6 years ago, no be YAM. Check am na! Hian! I cried o. That's how much the C-Section cost us. In fact, if you put me in a crying scene now with Nkiru Sylvanus - I promise you, all I have to do is remember the sound of money leaving his account "chin-chang" and there the tears will flow so much that Nkiru herself will hand me her CROWN. Lol.

So yes, my small yellow pawpaw came to the world, as if his father was Mark Zuckerberg. And then Madam Matron said in her husky motherly voice - "Please, Mrs Alex. Don't use soap for this boy o. He has a sensitive skin, If you want to maintain his fair skin. Use only Soap free, something like Sebamed. I won't forgive you o, if you spoil his fine skin."

Ha! Egba mi! On top my own pikin again, you won't forgive me...see blackmail. Rubbish! Last I checked, he was my son...MINEEEEE!!!

So that's how, I'd use a #500 soap, and this my small little chori would use a #1860 soap, ...for 6 years. Let's do the maths na. 1 x 21(days) x 13 (weeks) x 6 (years) x 1860 naira = And that's for soap alone. Oh it even trippled with the recent dollar rise. I now buy his lotion for almost #4000, until I realised come o, this boy is almost 6, those kids who use dettol soap and pears don't have two heads. I won't talk about shelter, food, clothes, shoes, school, toys and health care (for the health care GOD has been SUPER, we haven't visited a hospital in years), I guess our big man up there knows, I don't have any man to pat my back or rub my feet, as soon as I start pacing down a hospital reception. Naaaa!!

I won't lie, I thought I wouldn't have to ride alone on this journey. That he will always have everything he NEEDS from both his parents. That we will both be available to guide him, whether we stayed together forever or moved our separate ways. Of course, life teaches you that nothing ever goes the way you PLAN...And not too shortly, I learned that lesson the hard way. Had to raise this beautiful boy on my own for 5 and 1/2 years. I can't even start to explain the amount of physical, financial, emotional, psychological PAIN & sacrifices, I've had to endure to 'unexpectedly' raise him by myself. He was just a 6 months old baby when I left.

Today he is 6 YEARS OLD - Beautiful, Strong, Loving, Gifted, Independent Minded And Intelligent beyond his years. I could never understand why any father could abandon a beautiful soul like him, when many will give anything to have one like him . BUT today I UNDERSTAND... I look at him and I GET it. God was preparing me for a journey...Because HE never gives us a CHALLENGE we can't overcome. I get it now...And I'm proud of who I am today and where I am. Ray and I have come far, and he has been instrumental to my process, his birth jerked me, renewed me and positioned me to GROW and Today, I can poke my chest without a doubt in my mind, that our future from henceforth will be colored with nothing but Golden Rays, because he is my biggest achievement- my biggest MUSE and my every reward. And I'm glad that it's for him I paved a meaningful path, and in him I INVEST all my love, time, money & patience.

Thank you to the few amazing friends, who never left us or judged me. Who stood by us and held our hands during dark clouds. I could never forget you, even when I'm silent - Sarah, Biodun, Pamela, Nina, Ehi, Sammie, Matilda, Yemi, Shan, Fisayo, Vanessa, Linda, Kalu, Moyo, Emeka, Tunde, George, Victoria, John... My wish is that you never NEED me, but IF and when you do...that I'll be in a position to do for you what you have done for US and more.

So please say a PRAYER or two for the both of us and don't forget to wish Mr Sunshine himself - Ray Okoroji- Captan, A Happy 6th Birthday. It might be his birthday BUT its also my RE-Birth day.

Stay Authentic & Keep Winning!
