Timothy, my nephew, has taught me a lot of lessons about motherhood. He had to live with us because his mother, my cousin got admitted at the hospital for two weeks. Then, after her discharge from the hospital, she had to go back to deliver her baby. Just around that time, the covid19 stay home was announced.
Tim, had to continue living with us so that his mum could have enough time for the new baby. He has been with us for almost 10 months now. He sleeps in my room. Anywhere I go he is sure to follow me. During his stay with us I have learnt a lot about being a mother to a child. I have learnt to be extra patient, watch what I say to him because eventually, he will say the same words to me the next day. I have learnt not to give in to all his demands no matter how loud he cries. I have learnt to pray for him as a mother would for her child.
In our neighborhood, everyone says we shouldn’t send him back because it’s as if I am his biological mother 😅. The bond between Tim and I is deep. I thank God for bringing him into my life. He will eventually have to go back to his mom and his siblings but I will definitely miss him big time.
I will miss how he praises me when I wear a new dress. I will miss how he won’t allow anyone to bath him except me. I will miss our evening strolls in the neighborhood. And I will miss him calling me mama.
