For some weird and very ignorant reason I believed baby proofing was not for Nigerians , It was just supposed to be for Oyinbos and people who have babies in movies because that is just the way it is supposed to be at least that was what I thought until Kunmi Kums started walking.
As a mother you get so excited , oh my baby can walk , I shoved Kunmi’s walking video down everybody’s throat including yours , then it grew old and he grew troublesome. Now He can reach my dressing table, he can climb stairs and he will eat your I-phone charger no seasoning required. He is everywhere , I mean everywhere. So I thought to myself there has to be a way out and I found one at Game, they had a bunch of things for baby proofing so I bought some and I felt really good with myself because I was a good mum , I had arrived, lets see how Kunmi Kums will beat this.
So on this fateful day , once upon a time not long ago Kunmi and I were in the living room, I was watching TV and he was busy being a baby screaaming and looking for things to destroy, I was cool with it because I had baby proofed so nothing is going to happen. Then Kunmi walks up to me and hands me one of my baby proofing gadgets, I couldn’t believe it. This boy had actually removed it.
I had to laugh because Kunmi Kums had won for now , so I have decided to use my voice to baby proof till I rethink my strategy. I will be screaming NOOOOOOO, DON’T DO THAT , PUT IT DOWN, and so on and blah blah ….
