This Is Ella’s Hair

This is Ella’s hair. My goal as her mom has always been to take care of it myself, with no outside help, and when she was a toddler, I could! Tiny matutas were perfectly fine. Loose mini ponytails were good for a week. Now that she’s older, she cares a lot more about how her […] Read more…

5 Different Types of Moms: Which One Are You?

I came across a hilarious video on Huffington Post this week about how there are 5 different types of moms: The PTA Mom (goody two shoes), The Parenting Expert Mom (know it all), The Crunchy Mom (organic health nut), The Hipster Mom (hippie) and my personal favorite, The Poop Or Chocolate Mom (who is a […] Read more…

Kenya is Beautiful!

I can count the number of Kenyan towns I have visited outside of Nairobi with disturbing ease: Embu, Kirinyaga, Naivasha, Nakuru, Machakos, Watamu, Malindi, Mombasa and Eldoret. That’s it – less than 10. In truth, I can hardly even remember what most of these towns are like, either because I was a child when I […] Read more…

Arts, Crafts & Us

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not an artsy person. I have never been. In fact my dad loves to remind me of that one time in kindergarten when I had a nervous breakdown because my homework included one simple instruction: to draw a pig. I was 5 years old and convinced that […] Read more…

The New Official Valentine’s Day Tradition

I am happy to report that (despite my fears) Valentine’s Day was a success! There was no awkwardness or disappointment. And even more importantly, I figured out what our New Official Valentine’s Day Tradition is! (Granted, none of this has been discussed with Mr. Big, but I have decided that I like how the weekend […] Read more…

Clueless Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is here and I find myself to be in a state of distress. Why? Because I hate this stage of my relationship. The stage where you don’t have any established traditions for special occasions. The stage where you’re not even sure if you celebrate, let alone give gifts on certain occasions. The stage […] Read more…

Mshikakis On A Sunday

Some Sundays are absolutely perfect for at-home barbeques. The kind of Sundays where you’re too lazy to go out but are too restless to stay on the couch. The kind of Sundays where you want to do something interesting at home but also want to do something practical, like feed your child. I love such […] Read more…

Mommy’s Diapers #AlwaysStandUpKE

Mommy’s Diapers. That’s what Ella called my pads the first time she saw a packet of Always laying on my bed. And I didn’t correct her. I didn’t tell her that they were actually called pads or that I needed them for something called periods. Instead, I quickly nodded, thanked God she hadn’t mistaken my […] Read more…
