5 Fun Places To Go With Kids In Nairobi

So, it’s Saturday morning and your kids are already fidgety and whining that they’re “so booooored”. They’ve already had breakfast, watched a tv show, played on your tab, played on your phone and locked the sim (AGAIN), drawn all over your magazines and made you play a gazillion pretend games. And it’s only 9:52 AM. […] Read more…

Ella at 4 years old! (I need to break down her personality to you guys in a whole other post. SHE. IS. A. CHARACTER)

Testing, testing…

Testing 1,2,3 Does this still work? Anybody still out here? Wow. So much has happened since I jotted down my first post 5 years ago. And even more during my 2 year blogging hiatus after I moved back to Kenya. Do I have a valid excuse for my blogging sabbatical? No. Have I missed you […] Read more…

Ella Standing Pool (640x552)

Summer Swim! (Well…kind of)

Summer is finally here! Yay! Sunny weather means one thing in this household: swimming! Well, in Ella’s case, it means being in close proximity to a swimming pool and *possibly* standing in the water. She has this wading pool (best $5 I ever spent!) that she loves to be around. I say ‘be around’ because […] Read more…

MILFs, Boobies, etc.

My heart got broken last week when Ella decided that she’s done with breastfeeding. Just like that! Done! My emotions are so jumbled up about it – sometimes I want to burst into tears because a very special stage in her development is over. Other times, I want to run down the street, screaming for […] Read more…

Play Here

Nervous Me

I take her to a children’s play area at the mall and I’m literally poised at the edge of my seat the whole time, ready […] Read more…

She shall not be moved!

Guess who got Ella’s cold? Yeah, APPARENTLY, baby germs are just as infectious as adult ones. Back in the day, when I would get a cold I’d bury myself for days under a heap of blankets with a box of tissues and a gallon of cold medicine. Gone are those days! I can’t even stop […] Read more…

Mommy’s Day Out

I went out by myself today for the first time since Ella was born some 9 weeks ago. I attempted to go on this outing yesterday but just as I placed her in hubby’s arms and turned around to leave, she woke up and proceeded to scream like a banshee. By the time I had nursed her, […] Read more…

Cry Me a River

Have you ever just felt the need to cry it out? Like the only thing that could possibly relieve your frustration/sadness/anger/irritability was a serious, woe-is-me crying session? Well, I have. And I’ve found that in the absence of my usual soothers (wine, caffeine, WINE, etc) crying has become my preferred stress reliever. Besides, nobody is […] Read more…
