Are you in the habit of rushing to work and equally rushing home because there is so much to do both at home and at work? Ever went to bed tired ignoring so many things in the bedroom and kitchen needing your attention, only to be interrupted a few hours later by the sound from your alarm clock? Do you always leave the house with more chores needing your attention that you carry part of your makeup/shoes and scarves to the office to dress appropriately later? Do you sometimes wish you could be in two or three places all at once? Are you a mother that works? Because if you are, then you'll appreciate and understand why there is a need to talk about how hard each day is for this superwoman called the "working mom".

I would say my sister and I are very different. She is silently brave and I am daringly brave. She is organized but I am not so organized. Even at a very young age, she was known to be serious minded while I was judged mischievous because of her seriousness. If our mom did not hear me for even a few minutes, she knew Mary was "up to something" but Oge can stay in the home and will be quiet and yet it is okay. I think she was attention sufficient while I was hyperactive attention deficit. But back then, kids didn't have these kinds of labels. So, my mom just made sure that I was kept busy all the time (Wash plate, sweep house, clean this clean that maka anya erughi m ala sic). While growing up, my sister was the good natured and introverted girl in the family. She loved the whole catholic activities including the Legion of Mary which I always teased her was for Mgbekes a.k.a juu babes lol. She had a very mean and authoritative outlook and everyone must ‘trust and obey’ her commands!
