Abeg make una come help me oh!
Solomonsydelle, how do you do it?
It’s not easy with 3 small kids -even with a help!
This morning I was in my room with my kids while their nanny was with the baby (or so I thought) next thing, my almost 3 year old leaves my room and comes back in with what looks like powder on his face “Mummy I put powder”. I smiled at him and wondered to myself how he had gotten hold of the powder as I had tried to put it beyond his reach. Next thing I hear is the nanny is screaming…
Well, the baby had fallen asleep so she put her in the crib and went to do something else. My son then went in, got the Persil detergent all over the room and all over my babies face. Luckily she didn’t wake up so I just cleaned her face and gave my son a stern warning not to play with detergent again. I guess I was careless leaving the Persil in her room and my son probably thought he was only putting powder on his sisters face.
The boys love their sister but they don’t realise they have to handle her with care. My 4 year old is more careful but my almost 3 year old: he prods her, kisses her non stop, has bitten her once (spanked him! so he hasn’t tried it again) squeezes her (in the name of hugs), and two days ago I caught him putting a pillow on her face!
Help me Lord!
I guess we just have to be more watchful.
