Baby JOOD’s first train ride
Our little family was privileged to be invited to Wrexham in Wales to attend a baby naming ceremony. I have never been to Wrexham despite the fact that it’s just about an hour drive from my village. Lovely Hubby (LH) was busy so could not go with JOOD and I. I decided to use the train so JOOD could experience his first train ride and we could bond.
The train ride was nice. Lots of countryside farms on the route which had cattle,sheep and horse grazing on the fields. JOOD started crying almost immediately we got on the train. “Mummy, mummy! he must have cried in his heavenly language. “Please don’t be selfish and keep all the sights to yourself! I want to see too”. I took him out of his carry cot and carried him, so he could see. He keep looking at the fields, the animals and the passengers. He was so excited.
As usual, the passengers especially the old ladies were charmed by him. They commented that he was a beautiful baby, very alert for his age, he is a nosey one,he has a cute smile and the likes. He is always quick to reward their compliments with a charming smile. He is just a lady charmer!
We were picked from Wrexham train station by our host. We got to meet the new baby boy. The ceremony was successful with the baby named AO and we were served delicious Nigerian cuisine like moimoi, jollof rice and fried rice. After all the excitement of the day, JOOD slept most of the journey back home. I love giving JOOD his first experiences.
