About Maryanne Waweru-Wanyama

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by. I am a Kenyan mom blogger and a mother of two boys.

March 2011

As I start this blog, I am quite pregnant (8 months) and currently undergoing the joys and rigors of pregnancy. Sometimes I feel so frustrated and helpless (I guess courtesy of the raging hormones) I just want to vent my heart out as I cry me a river. Other times I feel very happy and on cloud nine (courtesy of those hormones again I guess), I just want to share my joy with the whole world. I am due in April 2011.

I intend to chronicle these ups and downs in this blog. Share my random thoughts and experiences during the remainder of my pregnancy, as I look forward to the responsibilities of motherhood, into the world of diapers, bibs, oohhs and aahhs… and exactly how I will be hacking that. Or not. Here, I will carry on capturing my thoughts, fears, feelings, opinions, experiences and milestones as my little one grows.

I so look forward to connecting with the female community out there..connecting with fellow mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces, aunts, grandmothers…. sharing and celebrating all that makes us women. And moms.

Maryanne Waweru-Wanyama is my name and I am a journalist based in Nairobi, Kenya. I am a Christian, I love writing and this blog will be a good way for me to engage in my foremost passion as I spread the message of hope and faith through my own experiences and those of other mothers.

UPDATE – April 2011:

My little boy came in April 2011. I call him Kitty, and you’ll get to know him alot through this blog.

UPDATE – April 2013:

Kitty’s baby brother came in April 2013. I call him Ello, and he is so much loved by his older brother. Two boys, exactly two years apart. Their father and I remain totally grateful to God for his blessings.

So enjoy the reads, and looking forward to your feedback. You can also reach me on: maryanne@mummytales.com or on the Mummy Tales Facebook page.

Thanks and be blessed!
