The BIG Name Change Question

So my Mum and Dad came up with this strange topic:
They had noticed that an increasing number of newly-weds don’t either completely drop their maiden names or outrightly just don’t adopt the new husband’s name. And they were directly facing me with a question-what’s my view about it? Lemme say at this point that imma be getting married in a couple o’ months (or years), so anything I say or don’t say may be used against me on my wedding day!
As per Naija Boi that I am , I know this is a sensitive topic. So I’m standing on an egg without breaking it, if I can wriggle out of this safe.
But can a man really do anything much if you’ve married the love of your life and you eventually discovered she keeps her maiden name(maybe with your surname attached like a strange rat-tail) on her documents and even on her facebook profile.
My Mum thinks men are just being too docile,not willing to take responsibility and not putting their foot down enough.
My Dad thinks it’s also the fault of the men.
But one thing I like is that they both admitted, this issue wasn’t even a question to be asked in the days when they got married-the lady, as if on auto-pilot, changed her surname and she did it proudly.
I’m asking, will you really risk your wife’s happiness on a name-change issue and do you think men are to be blamed for a woman’s decision.
Remember, the long-standing family formular before you answer:
Happy Wife=Happy Life.

Child’s Nutrition

Midwife Station

 A healthy diet helps children grow and learn. It also helps prevent obesity and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes. To give your child a nutritious diet

  • Make half of what is on your child’s plate fruits and vegetables
  • Choose healthy sources of protein, such as lean meat, nuts, and eggs
  • Serve whole-grain breads and cereals because they are high in fiber. Reduce refined grains.
  • Broil, grill, or steam foods instead of frying them
  • Limit fast food and junk food
  • Offer water or milk instead of sugary fruit drinks and sodas

Learn about your children’s nutrient requirements. Some of them, such as the requirements for iron and calcium, change as your child ages.

A secret evening I had with President Obama in Lagos

So I’m inviting this beautiful girl I love, to go out with me on a date and I got to tell her that I own a blog. So she says,”you bloggers meet lots of celebs and you have gossips to share about them. Is there a particularly interesting one you’ve met?” (She must have spent a lot of time on Linda Ikeji’s Blog).I gave it a careful thought and decided to finally spill a story I swore to keep secret-a picture story about a man who secretly comes to Lagos, aka LasGidi only on friday nights. I initially chanced upon him at an Amala Joint near Mushin, but I couldn’t take a picture(because we were both cautious about bringing out our iPhone5s-iPhone5 had just been recently launched at the time and Mushin boys were really keen about changing their iPhone2). Anyway,I stalked him(as all bloggers do-there was this basically-crazy-dude called Ofili there too,he got bounced sha)and I got really close enough to take the pictures you are going to see next-I solemnly swear I’m up to no good:

17:00When I caught up with him at the Barber shop in Akoka.

Recipe for Good Living:Apple Smoothies and Love

Here’s a recipe I tried once(I was bored) and I will advice someone to try it,sweet and healthy and refreshing
2(or 3) Fresh Apples, chopped and blended
1 cup Milk
2 tablespoons Honey
4 Ice Cubes(if you are a Nigerian,use the whole block, you don’t have cubes).
I’m sharing it because I came across my Red Cross Health book and I read these about the ingredients I used:
Apples are rich in Iron and Phosphorus,so they’re highly beneficial in treatment and control of anaemia.I have also taken apples severally to cure unfavourable stomach actions(if you know what I mean,Kevin Hart in the Soul Plane knows what I mean).Apples also cure dental disorders and are beneficial to HighBloodPressure patients.
Honey treats whooping cough, induces sleep and is beneficial to insomniacs.It also builds haemoglobin and RBCs(also beneficial to anaemic people).Honey is also believed to aid virility(get yo’ grind on-hmmph) and hair growth by stimulating the follicles and oil glands beneath the skin.
Milk aids blood circulation(also good for anaemia patients), induces sleep(good for insomniacs) and helps in building bones,teeth and a good body mass.

At this time, when the black continent and the whole world is combating blood shortage and of course,diseases like Ebola, you can help yourself with just 350 Naira(2.25USD)and get specific fruits that replenish the blood.

Major love goes out to all who lost their loved ones on 9/11, 13 years ago.Honouring the mem’ries by posting this within the hour of the incidents.
