Bisi and Biodun were married for 8 years before having their only child Bayo.
Bayo is now 4 – years old and already in Nursery One.
Sometimes the pre- school system is so crazy that a child might have attended school for close to 4 years before eventually starting basic One.

Cecilia was trying to finish typing her report on the laptop and send it to her boss before her deadline expired. Beside her was Bobo, her two-year old son crying and demanding Cecilia’s Samsung phone to play with. The woman didn’t want ‘disturbance’, so she gave her phone to Bobo.
