Kenyan Moms – Cut From The Same Cloth In A Different Language

It would appear Kenyan Moms are cut from the same cloth. Well, at least mothers of our time. You know, those who have no idea what twitter is all about. In fact, it would appear we might as well have been sibblings as others pointed out. This was evidenced by yesterday’s Trending Topic #KenyanMoms And me, having claimed position the mothering territory, had a few things to learn. Plus I was tickled to the ground!

I think the only difference between the #KenyanMoms was the language they delivered their well curved out remarks/beatings.


You can relate, no? I mean, my mother went all out to do the *smack upside the head* and loudly proclaim: ‘Usitumie vikombe za kaulo! Hizo ni za wageni! Wewe ni mgeni?’ Or, asking whether you are waiting for curtains to draw themselves seeing as it’s dark and you have not taken the initiative. You have got to love the Kenyan Moms!

Well, here’s to #KenyanMoms and the drama they put us through. At least I know the near daily whoopass put the fear of God in me and definitely molded me to who I am today.

Head on to that #KenyanMoms tag for your ‘mine said/did that too!’ moment.
