Yesterday I didn’t get the opportunity to write a new blog post. My baby normally goes to daycare during the day because it is hard for me to care for him by myself due to my current medical problems. Tuesday late afternoon I got the dreaded call from the daycare that my baby boy was running a fever and…Continue

Infants and toddlers seems as if they are constantly sick for the first years of their life, especially, if they attend daycare. When my son was younger and we put him in daycare, it seemed as if he was sick with something every few weeks. We have to alternate days off and one of us would have to end up…Continue

Spending time with your children, especially, one on one time is important and makes them feel loved. I have been trying to make sure that I spend time with my toddler because he is growing up way to fast. I have a hard time getting down on the floor to play with him (due to my chronic back pain) so I have to be a bit more creative and find activities that work for me. He loves to “draw”, which is his favorite thing to do these days. So I scooped him up into my lap and grabbed the…Continue

www.HappyMothersDayIsEveryday.com is a youtube video that can be given to any mom. The message says, "I love you mommy" from any child.
People would not exist if it were not for Mother. Even I did not understand why my Mother made such a fuss over me when I was child, but now that I have children of my own, I certainly understand what my Mother went through with me.
This is a wonderful fun calypso reggae style song and once…Continue

I had a life changing moment recently. I've written a book been featured on major news outlets like the Business Insider, Wall Street Journal and more. I've been very blessed. I coach an amazing group of women who want to make money with their blog and they are writing books and doing great.
But in spite of all those accomplishments nothing filled my heart as much as the though of helping this young boy. I was a volunteer recently at an event and this was my experience.

This week when my daughter fell down the stairs, I had to take her to the doctor... and that was a bit uncomfortable.
Everyone is so sensitive to child abuse, or maybe I'm just nervous in general? Who knows!
Thanks for reading, Megan

Serene Sunday - there is serenity in realizing that you are supposed to be a parent, not a friend.

A mother begins a connection with her baby, while he or she is in the womb. Any mother who has had a child can explain, that carrying a child is an amazing feeling. Those first few kicks, jabs, punches, to getting hiccups several times a day, and those nights where you can’t get comfortable. Once you have the baby, the real job as a parent begins. This tiny human being is dependent on mom and dad to fulfill all of their needs.

Sunday arrives. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to tell my family or not. I just don’t know what to say or how to say it. Well, let me be honest, my younger sister and my younger brother already know. So basically who’s left to tell are my older sister and older brother and my parents. My older brother won’t be there today, and my older sister is easy going and will probably be excited. She loves babies. My parents are my concern. I have no idea what reaction to expect from them. And…Continue
Child birth classes are designed to provide expectant mothers with information so that moms are prepared for labor and delivery. Every woman will have a different labor and delivery experience, but the techniques used to help minimize pain and prepare a mother for labor are similar.
I remember when I was a first time mom, I didn’t feel that I really needed to attend a child birth class, I had it in my mind that I was going to have a natural birth and knew how…Continue

This is a very difficult post for me to write. But I am hoping that if any of my readers is facing a similar situation, you will know that you are not alone. My heart goes out to you. 25 years ago today, I received a phone call at work that would forever change my life.
This day started a four day ordeal of doctors, nurses, specialists......and tears. Buckets upon buckets of tears. My almost 11 month old baby boy was gone, one week before what would have been…

My second pregnancy was a bit of a surprise as I wasn’t actively trying to conceive. I found out in February 2000, that I was pregnant and was due October 9th, 2000. When I was almost 20 weeks, I found out that I was having a little boy. I was excited and nervous at the same time. I had that feeling that I was having a boy since my cravings were totally different that my first pregnancy. Continue reading my birth story at: …Continue

While my topic won't be pertinent to most moms - and for that I am so grateful - it will be to some who are hurting or they know a mom who is. Please help them out by mentioning their child. It's wonderful hearing the name of our children whether they are here on earth or in heaven; our relationship with them never ever…Continue
We are a support group for any woman who has lost a child. Our purpose is to comfort bereaved mothers. We offer compassion, conversation, validation, support, spiritual solace and friendship to one another. At our meetings - and our other gatherings together - no mother ever has to explain why she is suffering or justify why she can't "get over it." We all know that no mother ever "gets over it" because the sorrow keeps our communion open with our beloved deceased children. But, in the…Continue

Yesterday I shared with you my Child Care Woes. The day care we use will be closed until August 13th for a suspected mold they found in one of the rooms. On one hand I am happy they take any concerns like this seriously and promptly. On the other hand I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to find child care for the days I work. Right now we do not live close to family or friends. I…Continue

Transitioning back into a working mom came with a few obstacles. Child care was the biggest one I had to overcome. We no longer live close to family so searching for the right person to watch my only child with the schedule I have took plenty of patience and persistence. I thought I was good to go. I had a full time day care center for the week and someone else for the weekends. What I didn't think of was who to turn to during unexpected times when either of those two options were…Continue
Too much Disney....While getting dressed this morning, I was on auto-pilot.
"Arms up, Henry. Time to lift your shirt off."
Henry obligingly raises his
arms and then starts laughing.
Henry: Mama! Lookit! I'm like
Yeah, sure- he kind of did look like that scene where she puts
her arms up as she gets her ballgown.
I wonder....does that make me the
