  1. I enjoyed reading your answers. I’m tired of people also asking me when I’m going to give my daughters a brother. That can be so annoying. What do termites taste like🙀?

    1. Hahahaha@what termites taste like.
      Tasted so good Bukola, you won’t believe it. Especially the head.😀😀😊.
      People are very funny. Do they think you pick up the kind of kid you want? They just come and we accept them and love them as we see them. If I try again I might end up with another boy or even twins -two boys. It’s God that gives and whatever he gives is the best.


      1. I remember as a kid, my mother usually cooked vegetable soup with a kind of insect. But I don’t know the name. Maybe I will ask her.
        People can be very funny. I’m not thinking of having a baby anytime soon. But God knows best 😅. 💖💖
