Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.


I’ll be going on a hiatus of sorts.

The reason?

Impending motherhood.

Yes, I will soon be Mama Kenyan Pundit.

And to a slightly lesser extent, Telkom SA’s unwillingness to install ADSL in my new abode almost two months after I filed a request – the power of monopoly.

How do I feel? Excited, anxious, unprepared (not sure you can ever be prepared). It’s been a pretty smooth pregnancy except for the little one exhibiting signs of the mother’s stubborness by refusing to turn. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience…the miracle of life is truly awesome.

It’s always tricky navigating the boundaries between the public vs. the private persona when you blog, hence the delay in sharing the news.

Please keep us in your thoughts.

Hope to be back soon.

  • Congratulations,
    I wish you and your the best as you welcome a new one into your life. Here is a nice poem about pregnancy
    Child Of Mine

    Like the warmth of a loving hug, I feel you everyday.
    Tossing and turning about you move every which way.

    At first you were a tiny seed in my womb that grew more and more each day.
    Now your Dad and I are anxious because we know that you are on your way.

    We will wait ever so patiently to see your loving face,
    For we know that it will be filled with wonderful loving grace.

    You are our little miracle sent to us from up above.
    God just knew that we would be the ones for you to love.

    I thank the Lord for giving you to me,
    for choosing us as your Mommy and Daddy to be.

    I want you to know now loving child of mine,
    That I will love you and hold you from now until the end of time.

  • Ory thats wonderful news! How did you keep that under wraps for such a long time now I’m trying to imagine you as a mother, i pray you have a safe delivery and an easy transition into motherhood.. I know what you mean about the boundaries of what should be private and what should be public getting hazy.

    Oooooooooohhhhhhh Happy Motherhood!!

  • sunrisethree

    Mama Kenyan pundit junior :lol:,
    all the best with that. Am off to knit booties (otherwise why did we spend a whole month in std 6 knitting booties if not for reasons such as these). come back soon (or quickly learn how to type with one hand while changing diapers with the other- motherhood is about multitasking) coz we will miss u lots

  • KM

    Yipeee! congratulations KP. Haiya!

    All the best, and sigh, I hope its a girl to dress inpink clothes an ribbons, sigh, I’m vain like that, or a boy to teach about football.

    LOL, si the baby will turn out mad like you, a techie lawyer walking from Nairobi west cos they are bored of the party…*smh*.

    That is really exciting news, and I hope its all smooth sailing for you and that you and yours will be truly blessed.

  • Congratulations! And good luck when that moment comes…

  • ciiku

    Ms. KP – Such great news. Congratulations!

  • Congratulations and wishing you a *painless* delivery when baby KP comes howling into the world!

  • JKE

    Now that’s good news – my congratulations to you!

    As for blogging, I think you’ll be back sooner or later. And staying at home / offline means you’ll have enough time reading which will eventually result in some rants (at least) or just sharing the joy of motherhood with us. Oder so Àhnlich. πŸ˜€

  • Wonderful news Ory. Wishing you and the baby all the best. Is she gonna grow up to be a Harvard-trained lawyer like Mama? If so, I reccomend that you break her in on the keyboard at about 3 years old. No blogging allowed until 5 years. As you can see, I have my bets down on a GIRL child!

  • Sith

    Come up with a name(s) yet?

  • They are nuts and beautiful. It is going to be fun and drama. Roll with it.

  • During rites of spirit-conjurations and evocations, shamans and those involved with
    Islamic occultism here in Indonesia often appropriate the Apel Jin oil for
    facilitating the contact. His emergency treatment was to get
    the patient to drink a cup of cayenne tea and within minutes the danger has passed.
    The acai berries must be loaded into baskets and onto boats soon after picking.
    Your taking place miracle sequences are usually congratulations, we have a cameo look and feel by your good Billy
    Mc – Combe plus the Miracle Fort is usually there
    being host to tricks. Inhalation: You can either apply the oil directly
    to your hands, rub them together and then cup your hands
    over your nose and inhale deeply.
