My housekeeper Khetho got a new son, he was born March 13 and she calls him Sean. Funny how this worked out...
She asked the girls for a boy's name and JJ and Jezz named all the boys in their class... Sean is one of them, and now Khetho's son has besides an African name Mzwakhe also an English name Sean.
I gave Khetho 6 weeks of maternity leave, but the girls were so anxious to see him, that we asked if she would come by the house to show him to us. At 3 weeks old she came by and the girls were so excited to hold him, especially JJ! Jezz was a bit reluctant to hold him, but she would gaze at him the whole time!
Here is Khetho, who by the way, lost all her pregnancy weight by the 3rd week!! She was even a few lbs slimmer than before! How did that happen??
Jabu, Khetho's sister helped me out while she was on maternity leave, so now I have 2 great housekeepers for a while! Look how light the baby's skin is when they are new born. But it will change a bit, this happened to JJ and Jezz as well.
Sean Mzwakhe has also an older brother Khuli who is turning 7 on September 28, but lives with his grandmother in Zimbabwe. And he hasn't seen his little brother yet. It must be hard to not see your children for so long, mostly once a year or so when they are still that small. But that is the custom here in Africa. Most of the kids are raised by their grandmothers and the village they live in. So at age 24 Khetho has 2 boys, who knows what comes next....
Have a good day,
