“ Yaya Amina !! “ Yaya Amina “ her sister yelled from downstairs.

“ I am coming “ I yelled back at her before she started walking to the toilet.

I made my way downstairs. When I finished freshen up.

“ When I reached downstairs “

I found a mummy in the kitchen cooking breakfast.
Will, you just be sleeping all day and you think I will cook for you.

“ while you sleep away snoring “
She said, scolding me.

My mother hates it when I sleep in the morning,
Which is every day.

She paused
‘’ Good morning Mum” as I walked towards her and apologized.

“ How are you dear?” She asked

“It was good “. I replied

Mum, please warn my siblings to stop yelling out my name as they named me.
