See ehn, as a guy, I understand what it takes to take care of a baby from infantry stage to adulthood because I have seen my mother do that and I have bath for my younger ones at baby level.

You know that feeling where you set your two legs down to bath them and massage their waist and other parts of their body and the teary sound they make then you apply powder to calm them down, (laughs) it’s just fun though.

This mother’s day celebration has really made some good mothers share their thought about child bearing and Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has just seat back to reflect on the journey so far.

In her words, “I carried them in my stomach with lots of discomfort looking bloated yet happy. With my long weave, heels and nails I carry, clean and change them so excitedly. I wake up at 3am or anytime to check on them at the sound of a sneeze just to be sure they are fine. My heart aches at the thought of leaving them, their laughter and smile makes my life worth it. I pray everyday for their sadness, tears, failures and shame to be mine to bear while all my success, happiness, smiles and honour be theirs to enjoy. I sacrifice everything happily for them and lots more. It’s inexplicable Happy Mother's Day to Me and Every Mom.”
