Hi! My name is Amina and I sometimes find it hard to believe that I live in New Orleans, otherwise known as “NOLA”–home to never-ending Mardi Gras parades, extra powdery beignets, Po Boy shrimp sandwiches, and streets so riddled with potholes you would think you were in a third world country.
As a mother of three, I wear many hats: full-time driver, cook,…Continue

Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost. Like when your toddler is having a full on tantrum during the 2nd hour of a 14 hour trip so you give him the remaining ½ of a chocolate bar knowing full well that it will leave the worst mess on him, the car seat, the car, etc. but your sanity and that of your husbands is well worth the mess. Or maybe you plopped junior in front of the TV…Continue

Things have changed dramatically since I was a child growing up and I feel that kids today don’t have the opportunity to get outside to play. Kids are either busy with school work, participating in after-school…Continue

After I purchased the potty seat a few months ago, I tried putting my son on the potty. I knew that it was still a bit early and didn’t quite show all of the…Continue

During breakfast on Wednesday morning, I reminded Rocco that we had a date night. The two of us were going out after dinner to attend, ‘Dessert with Someone Special’ at his pre-school. Both of the boys got to choose who they wanted to take and to my surprise, Rocco chose ME and Roman chose daddy. I say, ‘surprised’ because I really…Continue

What a morning. You know, it’s so funny to me when people say, “Look at you! You’re so put together!” or “I don’t know how you always have it together!” This whole “together” thing makes me laugh. And then roll my eyes and shake my head. Let me tell you, just because I did my…Continue

My baby is showing the signs that he is getting close to being ready to potty train. A few weeks ago, he started telling when he has a soiled diaper. He says, “I poop” when he soils his diaper. He hasn’t quite figured out the difference between urinating and pooping. I am excited and nervous at the same…Continue

When I was growing up, most people I knew must have had pretty good vision. I say that because contact lenses weren’t the norm like they are today. If a person couldn’t see well, that person wore glasses. And most of the people I knew didn’t.
Sure, my grandparents wore glasses, as did the lady at the front desk of our library, and probably a couple of…Continue

The health benefits of incorporating Omega-3 fatty acids into our diet is nothing new. We have learned from other cultures that these fats are healthy. Some of these cultures such as the Inuit in Greenland eat as much as 40% of their diets in fat. However, these people have low rates of diabetes, heart disease and degenerative joint disease. The reason for this is their fatty diets are…Continue
