  31. Remember the saying, "behind a successful man is a successful woman" Whenever you are telling or writing your success stories, do not forget to appreciate us for the roles we played.

  33. Take us with you when you go on vacations and when you make trips abroad, do not act like children school fees, accommodation and feeding is all we deserve, when you make official trips, try to pay for us and the kids to go along with you, it's not too much  to do for your family.
  34. Trust us to shop for ourselves and the kids, we can do it. Do not try to shop for us because you feel we are not capable. You cannot chose what we like neither can you get the right sizes, we say thank you to make you happy not because we appreciate you shopping for us, we see that as stingy and disrespectful.
  35. Pay the bills; water, electricity, medical bills, School fees.
  36. Be the head when it comes to kids discipline, do not leave it to us.

  38. Do not yell at us when we forget the lights on, do not say that we forget because we are not the ones paying the bills.
  39. Do not make us sad when you are around, we want to enjoy your presence at home, but not when you are unfriendly and bossy. We want to miss you but that cannot happen if your presence at home cannot make us and the children happy.
  40. If you treat us with respect, that's how others will treat us too. Make us feel loved and appreciated at all times. When at home, Invite us to sit beside you, start conversations with us, ask how our day went and how we feel. Do not see our success as competition, we complement you. We are family.

I would like to eat this again lets say in two weeks but can you cut down or the pepper, salt , water , maggi or whatever your observation is? I think it will pay rather than " O God!! When will you ever cook what somebody will eat? Did your mum not teach you how to cook? What kind of salty , water , maggi soup is this?

    O boy!!!!!! She will go gaga!!!!

    Kudos to you all and a big LOVE to my sugar, buddy , best half, sweet , bobby and husband. He is a blessed Nigeria husband.

    Nigeria husband, the woman was never fat (maybe when you met her ) but you got her pregnant and ; there is what is known as baby fat. If you don't provide good and healthy meals for her during and after pregnancy there is a tendency of her being fat. Fruits and veggies are very expensive so you may likely buy bag of rice, garri, bread and all affordable carbohydrate to enhance the fat growing. Buy her treadmill and good meals she can keep fit and healthy too. She did it for your joy and peace so respect her sacrifices .
