Yaaaay!...Omugwo Chronicles has an entry!
when i was 6 months pregnant, my hubby traveled out for further studies. me nau, being an orphan, after delivering, i went the next day to my mil's house for omugwo. as a 'big' woman that she is, she wouldn't stoop low as to visit me for omugwo. but in all she tried, she couldnt bathe my baby, but she employed able hands to do that.
When they bathe baby eh, she will sleep for hours, but me, who knows me, i bathed myself, never experienced those hot water bath, i drove myself to the hospital for delivering and drove myself back after delivering same day. i pampered myself with the hot water. it hurts when i hear my friends sharing how they felt pains when their mums bathed them, abi is it the pepper soup they took after given birth? or is it the sleeping at night while their mums took care of their babies? i never experienced any. i pray that God keeps me alive to do proper omugwo for my children. amen.
My mil could be very difficult but generous. but her grown up children who behaved very childishly are a set of wicked and bad belle people. i know i'm contradicting myself but i cant live with the kind of mil i have, she's so troublesome, quarrels with everybody around, insults anybody be you who. i cant stand it since i wasnt brought up in a harsh environment. i stayed there for 2 weeks 3 days cos of the omugwo. i really thank her for the elaborate naming she did despite her wicked children's evil advise not to do it.
My mil is recognized by the fed. govt. so she has money, whenever she wanted to give me money, na so those her wicked children would prevent her and she easily listens to them. naming nko, they did everything to stop her from doing it, but she refused. when i say children, the least among them is 41 years old. they are married but are always in their mother's house like monitoring spirits.
whenever those wicked children of hers are around, i didnt feel comfortable. i always locked myself and my kids in my room. because anything one does in that house, they'll criticize you. na so i take thanked mil and ran o.
i continued my omugwo myself, no help, my family members are in another state, they couldnt stay when they visited, you know when na wicked people full ground.
My baby would be 3 in few months time.
*Hian!...This looks more like a Chronicle...I hate stories of wicked MIL's with a passion.
