Meeting the in-laws for the first time
I have spent a better part of the day sleeping and guess what,it's more refreshing than a chilled bottle of water on a sunny day. I have overworked myself this week and I was seriously looking forward to this weekend. I missed you all(for real) please tell me you missed me too lol!!!!!!
OK so someone really really really close to me is asking for advice on a very pressing issue and I thought to do a post on it so that those with similar worries can benefit as well.
If you are full blooded Nigerian you will understand that meeting le boo 's parents is a very big step for any lady and making a great impression matters a lot especially when you are meeting them for the first time. let me share my tips here and if you have more tips please do share in the comment box so we can all be great together
1. Dress responsibly, most African parents are not about the western style of dressing, this means that those sexy crop top, torn super tight jeans and mini dresses should be packed away for when you are alone with le boo. That is not to say that you go there looking like you have no sense of style. aim for something simple and conservative and fits you
2.Be polite, don't forget your please and thank you. Answer" yes " not yeah or yup make yourself useful in the house, dont always wait to be told before you help out.remember that little acts of consideration will stick in their memories.
3.f you don't know how to cook please make google your friend and start practising, "it is not in your Prospective mother in-law's house that you want to start your kitchen experiments"
4.come bearing gifts-As a matter of fact it is unethical as a Nigeria to visit a home (especially it's your first time) Empty handed. You need to show up with something in hand No matter how small especially for his mum it shows how caring and welol brought Up you are
5. Last but not the least relax and breathe, they are probably as tense as you. So be yourself and enjoy every moment.
