Yay! I got the award....
I have seen this logo on a number of blogs and I had wondered what it was all about. Well, I read through and I thought what a cool idea
And what is way cooler? Well, I got the award also!
Yay me! *wipes lone tear, waves at the cheering crowd
Thank you. Thank you. I am indeed honored. 

The award is passed on from sister blogger to another and I agree with TIBS' line of thought on the award on building a network of ladies....who knows where a great friendship would start from?

So, the award comes with a set of rules. It is a serious something oh!

1. Thank the blogger who nominated (awarded) you, linking back to their site. 
2. Put the award logo on your blog.
3. Answer their ten questions. 
4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees.
5. Nominate 10 bloggers
The aim: to help ladies accept every part of their bodies and personalities.

I was nominated and awarded by the lovely Amaka. She blogs @ Thank you my dear ajuwaya!

Amaka did not ask ten questions but she asked a biiiig question as she was asked on her own nomination form. (Did I not tell you it is a serious something?)

Her question: "Tell us about a part of you that you struggled with(maybe a habit, nose, shape, leg etc) and how you over came the fear......

My answer: I struggled hard with my dentition. Some of my teeth (the upper incisors) grew out from one root (my friend called it squatting teeth, smh) and in primary school, I had the squatters removed. It was a painful experience and my mouth was swollen for days. I believe professionally it is referred to as dens in dents

The squatters were removed and the dentist told me to constantly use my tongue to push the inner teeth and they would eventually align. Hmmm, my people, I pushed and pushed and pushed for years, they are still slightly backwards. I thought there was something wrong with me. I cried and cried because my teeth would not fit in a perfect row

I felt ugly and I would not smile or laugh out loud....anything to expose my teeth was a NO! And I grew up not smiling a lot. I have had comments from people asking me to smile. In fact, one day an Okada rider looked at me and said "abeg sister smile small na" I felt really horrible. I believe this has a lot to do with why people think I am a major snob when they first meet me. 

Well, I am all grown now and even though I still do not smile much, I am less conscious of the space there and I have found out that some people do not even notice! So why have I been killing myself over it?!

Do I still hate my dentition? Yes, I do. But it doesn't affect me like it did anymore. Now I smile without caring (though I am not big on smiling). So yea, this is what I struggled with in life.   

Now I will like to nominate the following awesome sister bloggers and I will stick to Amaka's way and throw back the same question to you all.

DURU  (Yes young man, I nominate you on behalf of Jilda).

There we go. These are the blogs I have nominated. Please follow the rules and let us appreciate our favorite blogs. I know some that I would have put up have already receive there nominations. Congrats to y'all!

    1. Thanks sweetie....
      Indeed, the network is for real.

  2. Whoops! Whoops!!

  3. We are building a formidable network ma'am.
    I thought people use braces to correct dentition?

    1. I think my parents did not consider that cz the Dr. said they would align eventually.
      I've thought about fixing them... Maybe I will, someday.
