Meet (part of) My Family

image

So I did a post that kinda introduced you to my parents and then a few weeks ago you “met " my sister. With that said, I figured you might as well meet the rest of my family - well at least my siblings for the time being.

Olatoye, we call him Junior because he has dad’s middle name but everyone else calls hm O’. Being the oldest of the bunch he has those “older brother” qualities. You know, annoying, hovers too much… just kidding. But in all seriousness he looks out for all of us. He’s always willing to hear your stories - no matter how boring or boy-oriented they may be. Not to mention his advice is always warranted. I remember my last years at college, he saved me a bundle thanks to his street smarts when in comes to money.

imageNext in age is Tejumola. We either call him Teju or Teej. Me and him are so similar in many ways. We both like to draw, introverted extroverts and love a good joke. Besides that, he reminds me so much of dad. Stern but just a big softie on the inside.

You met my sister but just so she isn’t left out in this post, her name is Simisola but she’s called Sim or Simi (I call her my pearl but only on Sundays. Haha inside joke). I may not ask her for advice all the time but the way she lives her life and carries herself is advice enough.

Last but not least, my twin brother Mobolaji. Just call him Mo. He’s the outgoing one that knows everything about everything. Quick to make friends wherever he goes- and I don’t just say that for effect, it’s literally true. His ability to do that is a trait I truly admire about him. He also has his quiet moments because he’s a thinker too. I know for a fact that if it were not for him, I would not have ventured out as much to experience all I have today. (Side Note: a friend of mine the other day gave me stern talking to when I just casually slipped in the conversation that I have a twin brother like it wasn’t a big deal. She was hurt that I never once mentioned it to her. So for all you people like Emily, here I am proclaiming to the world that I have a twin brother. You can no longer get upset when I fail to mention that).

So yeah, there you have it. That’s (part of) my family in a nutshell. If you have yet to meet ‘em I suggest you do somehow because they’re fricken awesome!!
