The Day I mistook Food ๐Ÿฅ˜ For A Baby ๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿพ

When I was much much younger, I always wanted a baby. Precisely, a baby girl ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

A reminder: We are all guys in our house (except mother)๐Ÿ˜…and males are the majority in my extended family. We only have 4 females to almost 20 males ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

But I had always wondered how it will feel to have a female as sibling ..you know, a girl that I can train to play soccer, play the PlayStation, and other โ€œboyishโ€ stuff ๐Ÿ˜‚

My brothers also wanted a sister, and we were constantly trying to figure out in our little minds, why mom found it so hard to manufacture a female.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ like there was a machine in momโ€™s stomach that mom can say โ€œheyy, I want a male ..hey I want a femaleโ€ and boom! It pops out from wherever it pops out from ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

So we kept getting angry at mom and dad for not even wanting to produce a female.

(Until we understood biology and the way everything works ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…)

But something unexpected happened.

I noticed something. Was it a breakthrough? Read on.

On one of those days that I had prepared my weekly speech to come tackle mom on why I wasnโ€™t seeing her stomach big (big with my sister in it), I noticed something.

I put my ear on her stomach and I noticed something sounding! This sound was like a baby kicking!! Like something was in MOMโ€™S STOMACH!!

I kept my ear fixed on her stomach. I couldnโ€™t believe it!!! Does this mean Iโ€™m going to have a sister soon?!!! Yayyy!!! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

I didnโ€™t want to tell mom about it. I thought she didnโ€™t know about it and the baby would just come out suddenly and it will surprise her๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚(as Iโ€™m remembering this, Iโ€™m feeling so ashamed of my little mind thinking)๐Ÿ˜‚

So I got to school the next day I bought sweets ๐Ÿฌ. When my friends came requesting for some, I told them that Iโ€™m saving the sweets for my sister.

โ€œDo You have a sister?โ€ They kept asking

โ€œYes. I have a sister. And tomorrow, you will see herโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚I replied.

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚how on earth did I think a baby in womb would make it to my school the next day???๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well, for like a week (or less), I kept thinking my mom was actually โ€œcarryingโ€ my sister in her stomach.

But when I noticed that no baby was coming out or popping out, I decided to break my little secret to mom.

โ€œDonโ€™t you notice thereโ€™s a baby in your stomachโ€ I told her.

โ€œBaby? Why do you say so?โ€ She replies.

โ€œWhen I put my ear to your stomach, I kept hearing sounds, like as if a baby girl is in your stomachโ€ I said.

Then she laughed so hard and said the sounds I kept hearing in her stomach the food she ate. (Amala) ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ

So the rumblings in her stomach wasnโ€™t my baby sister, but my momโ€™s food undergoing digestion. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

After this, I gave up trying to have a sister with the consolation that Iโ€™m going to have daughter(s) ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡Let the will of God be done โœ….

Iโ€™m so happy with my brothers. And Iโ€™m so thankful to have them in my life. I never regretted having them, itโ€™s just that I wanted to know the feeling of having a sister.

But thanks to all the wonderful people that Iโ€™ve met in my life, (YOU included) I now know how it feels to have both brothers and sisters.

Iโ€™ve met a lot of brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, fathers and mothers, grandpas and grandmas, here on WordPress. So Iโ€™m so happy having yโ€™all as my extended family. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

______________________________________


For those complaining about their siblings (males and females), I want you to know that you should cherish what you have.

Some people are the only child of their parents. They wish to have brothers and sisters. If you have sisters alone, know that people out there wish they had sisters like yours.

If you have brothers alone, know that people out there wish they had brothers like yours.

If you are the only child, donโ€™t feel bad. Know that many people also wish they are the only child like you.

Cherish the people you have.

Family isnโ€™t about numbers. Itโ€™s about the people that create room for love โค๏ธ in our hearts.

Come, letโ€™s be one family. Letโ€™s be a big family that will shake the earthโ€™s foundations with love, care, peace and support!

Your smile is my inspiration โค๏ธ

      1. Oh, I didn’t send it by mail, but on one of your posts…
        Maybe check your spam?
        Anyway, here is the request:
        As you may know, I’m planning to launch the Penable Academy by the end of September, and I was wondering if you could do a short course if you have enough time.
        Maybe a course on, ‘How to stay motivated to write’ or ‘how to achieve your goals’

  6. NO. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Bio be like: Are you insulting me right now? ๐Ÿ˜‚ No but like seriously tho, when I first learned about mother nature’s doings, I laughed so hard, I was surprised I didn’t die. (wow, very optimistic, Srisha) I wanted a bbygorl badly too, so I prayed to god like every single day and night, and I’m like CAN YOU PLEASE HAND HER OVER TO ME, LIKE GOD DAMN, DOES IT TAKE THAT LONG?! One of my friends then asked me ‘You have any siblings?’ I’m like: ‘Hell yeah, honey, she’s popping out on my birthday’ ๐Ÿ˜ŽโœŒ Then, when my mum had a bump in her stomach, I’m like: ‘YOU DIDN’T SHARE THE ORANGES WITH ME, MUM?! HOW COULD YOU?!’ When I saw the bag of oranges she was holding, I thought, she ate them all and refilled it. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ She told me I was gonna have a baby sister. The next day at school: YO PEOPLE, GOD’S REAL HE LISTENED TO MY PRAYERS AND NOW I GOT A BABE POPPIN’ OUT, MWHAHAAH, I’M SO COOL. When my sister was born: OH EM GEE, YOU’RE SO BEAUTFUL AND…A bit tiny you know. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Then Bio came hitting our whole class and even the teacher looked stressed. I couldn’t blame him, we were laughing our heads off, I remember, this one kid was listening so carefully so he doesn’t fail and I’m here covering my ears and wheezing. I thought it took 2 MONTHS. 2 FREAKING MONTHS. I saw other people’s sticky notes (we had to write what we thought and stick it all over our class) *changes 2 months to 9 months* ๐Ÿ˜

      2. I do have a baby sister! Having siblings is fun, but not so much when you’re the one that gets blamed sometimes or when they eat your food. *glares at my sister* I was very tiny as well, so this dude was blocking my way from seeing my sister so I literally pushed and screamed at him like this: *clears throat* AYO, I’M SEEING MY BABY SISTER ALRIGHT, GET OUT OF THE WAY.

  9. Haha this is funny and you’ve somehow managed to add some family lessons here Vincent. Nice writeup, this reminds me of sometime as a kid when I wanted a baby brother so bad. Heck, I’ve already made up a name, “Moses.” That boy never came and I’m super happy with the relationship I share with my sister today.

    Cheers!
