Carol’s Baby Shower


Last weekend, I attended a baby shower for my very good old bosom buddy, my childhood friend Carol.

Carol and I grew up together in Buru (is there any other better place to have grown up?), and we shared lots of good times together as we exited our exciting teens and hopped on to the tumultuous bandwagon that was our twenties. In our thirties now, we’re all so more relaxed, calm and peaceful. Phew!

Anyways, Carol is expecting her first baby – in a week or so’s time, and I’m all so eager and anxious as I can’t wait to meet her little bundle of joy already. Here are some of the gifts she received at the shower.

All the best Carol as you prepare to receive your little one. Mama Kitty is just as eager, and will be on call 24-7 to guide you all through. Love you girl 🙂 .

  1. In need of help, I have noticed that my seven year old daughter has a keen interest in football and being the mother I am, would want to nurturer this talent. The problem is that I do not know where to begin from, someone had told me to check out the girls football club in Kenya but its more on older girls. My baby is seven and she is good at it.

  2. Ha ha ha. I left before explaining the olive oil. You will soon discover, dearest, that babies sometimes just reject all those sweet smelling Johnsons and cussons and all they need is either the olive oil or…..mafuta ya kukamua ng’ombe. So, just incase dear. You are a blessed woman and God will give you wisdom as you bring up baby Eli.
