Raising Intuitive Children

Buying your child a gift is one of the most fulfilling things known to humanity, literally! But what happens when your child intuitively narrates the contents of each box? It’s been a spectacle for a while now, and we just had to share this. Growing up, I always knew I was different, didn’t fit in…

Am I Black or White? Multiracial Concerns!

Driving past a school on our way to a playdate Kyla blurted out, “Look! A black school”. She was 3 years old at the time, right about the time her identity crisis started.  It was easier growing up Black, as I’m pretty sure it is for every other race. I knew my roots, (Well somehow,…

Fluffy Pancake Sundays!

I started a family tradition in 2017, “Pancake Sundays” and surprisingly we haven’t missed a Sunday since. After so many trials and errors, I finally accomplished the fluffy consistency I was looking for. Here’s what you need: 3/4 cup milk 2 tablespoons white vinegar 1 cup flour 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder…

A love between a father and daughter

I always thought it was a myth until I witnessed the connection between them, quite contrary to the first year. The day Kyla was born her dad couldn’t hold her, he stood there staring at her, checking if all her fingers and toes where intact as she gripped his finger. Day two he eased up…

Kyla turns 5

Happy Birthday my darling daughter. Words can not express the excitement I’m feeling right now. I didn’t sleep much through the night, as for the butterflies in my tummy! Oh my. Kind of feels like it’s my birthday. We’re hitting a punch with one tooth down too. I am so blessed to have you in…

Q & A

Hi guys, So I thought I would take this opportunity to respond to questions I’ve been getting from social media. I finally got the time to compile and share them with the wider audience, and of course for Kyla’s reference. What does “Momzyk” mean? Mama Kyla. Why the name “Momzyk”? It just crossed my mind…

Kyla the leftie

I couldn’t wait for her to start scribbling on paper even though she occasionally opted for the wall and furniture. In pre-school (playgroup-KG1) her teachers noticed that she coordinated well with both hands. PS: if you’re looking into getting your kids into a Mombasa based preschool, Tiny Tots Kindergarten in Nyali is the way to…

Raising Responsible Kids

This topic has been on my mind for a while now. I’m a strict parent, but breeding a fearful child isn’t in the cards. Given she’s a girl who’d want mommy advice at some point in her life. I have watched parents either fail or succeed in numerous attempts, myself included. In realization that parents…

Happy Mother’s Day 2017

It’s that time of the year when we acknowledge and appreciate mom’s around the world. Expectant moms, new mom’s and all round mom’s. We are a breed of perseverance and resilience, superwomen at work, play and of course strong mighty women. This year is the season for new mom’s and mom’s-to-be. I have friends in…

Déjà vu: Traveling Is In The Family

This photo takes me back to my childhood, on another episode of Déjà vu. My sister and I were raised by separated parents in Zimbabwe, so we always flew regionally between homes. Difference? we had each other for entertainment so screens were not a worry, the only battle we had was who would take the…

Highlights of 2016

The year 2016 had been an interesting year for us, so many trials and tribulations as we wrapped up the year wiser and stronger. Watching Kyla grow and develop her steadfast personality had been the greatest milestone of the year. She’s definitely one outspoken little miss with innate leadership skills and a mind of a…
