This is part of an ongoing Practice Writing Igbo series where I am writing more in the Igbo language to improve my Igbo skills! I will be sharing some of my writing practice here in the blog to inspire you to write more Igbo. I include my mistakes because I want to show you that it’s okay to make mistakes and that you can actually learn from them overtime.

This month’s topic is talking about my thoughts on being a mommy: 

Ịbụ nne bụ njem.

Enwere ụbọchị ọma ma nweka a ụbọchị ọjọọ.

Ọ bụ ezie na ịbụ nne adịghị mfe, ịbụ nne bụ ngọzi.

Mgbe nwa m na-akpọ m nne, obi m na-achị ọchị.

Mana, mgbe ụfọdụ ana m na-eche na amaghị m ihe m na-eme.

Note: Members of my Nzukọ Igbo Study Group, please log in to your account here to get an additional bonus material of my Igbo writing practice about being a mommy in the Igbo language. I include a longer version of this writing prompt that’s edited by a native speaker so you can learn from my mistakes and the English translations in the Igbo Writing Prompts course. I also provide additional writing prompt topics to give you ideas on topics that you can write about in Igbo and an online forum where you can practice writing Igbo with me.
