Omugwo Chronicles -37

Ha..ha..ha!!!






Hello Stella, 
here goes my Omugwo Chronicles.

I had my first child in the diaspora when I was doing my Masters degree, it was a smooth pregnancy and my mum had to come from Nigeria. I was happy to see her when she came. 


Being my first I really didn't know what to expect, my baby came few days after my due date, before the baby came, my mum was busy inspecting all I had bought and giving her opinion that they were too many and expensive, I was decorating the baby's room and she'll be speaking in my dialect "stop doing like oyibo, you don't need all these nursery decoration" we quarrelled a lot and had fun as well, some days she"ll complain of cold and others she"ll say my house is too small( 2 bed terrace duplex) that oyibo pple can be stingy ehn.

Anyway the baby finally came and she was with me all through and ofcourse being her loquacious self, she was everywhere in the ward and at a point they asked her to step aside for my hubby to be with me, she didn't pay attention to them but pretended not to understand English. lol. she took over the delivery telling me how to place my hand on my ankle and push. At that point I wasn't even listening to the nurses  but was listening and trusting my mum's directives. she was busy abusing(in efik) and smiling with  the Nurses that they were too soft.

I was discharged the following day with instruction not to bath but just clean the baby since it was winter. As a first time Mum I was obeying them to the letter while my mum was busy *yimuing* me. on the 8th day my baby wont stop crying, she rejected almost everything,before I knew what was happening my mum had arranged bath water, improvised a stool and off she went, she bathed the living day light out of my baby without my consent. my baby started sleeping and slept all through the naming ceremony.


We are all girls and I was never close to my mum but the period she spent with me from pregnancy to post pregnancy got us closer, she taught me so many things  I  enjoyed her company she was selfless, she cooked, bathed the baby and took care of the house. God bless my mum. 


LMAO..that hospital scene cracked me up.God bless your mum !

    1. "She bathed the living daylights out of my baby" cracked me up. You know say oyingbo no dey baff (na joke ooo before the piranhas on this blog come for my ass), blacks must to baff wether the weather na minus zero degrees. No matter what, mums are the best. Kudos to your mum and continue taking care of yourself and baby, guess you are a single mum. It is well.
