Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,
Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.
I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…Continue

Children are very soft at heart and the way they are being treated leaves a permanent impression on their mind. Violence in childhood plays a major role in forming the type of person he/she will become. Though violence is associated with the interaction between environment and genetics and it is really impossible to alter the DNA one born with, the way these genes are being expressed can be dominated with extra care. So, saying that an individual is born that way no…Continue

Now, as most of y’all know I am often called a Pollyanna thanks to my glass is half full positive outlook on life. However there is one thing in this world that quickly turns this Pollyanna into a Negative Nelly and that is a good old-fashioned cookie exchange! Shocking, but true! I have participated in my fair share and even organized a few and let me tell you, now I understand what they mean by a labor of love. Except for in this case, unlike actual labor where you totally forget…Continue

I am elated to reveal the cover of my soon to be published book. This book chronicles the hurdles I had to endure to finally achieve success as a French and Spanish teacher. I hope my story will inspire all future educators from across the globe.
I believe in order to make a change for the better in public education, school districts across the United States should make a concerted effort to hire more educators of color. I wrote “Saying Yes To My Life’s Calling: Breakthroughs in…Continue

Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack... Repeat. There are days when I’m not exciting about having to prepare another meal.

My crockpot has become a dear friend over the past 6 years... Pretty much when I started having kids. Its so easy to throw all your ingredients in, cover, and the let magic happen. Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora…Continue
“Do ya think the tooth fairy can make it tonight? It’s been three nights already. Just put the money in the case… “ - Stephen, age 9
The tooth fairy sucks. She does, simply because everytime she blows off my kid, I’m left holding the bag. Bad momma.
I replay our convo in my head, “Do ya think the tooth fairy can make it tonight? It’s…Continue

They operate a shelter every Tuesday night and provide lunches for the next day. There are many PADS programs available all over with some even supplying permanent housing and supportive services for their…Continue

I am an entrepreneur, not by choice originally, but an entrepreneur nonetheless. About two years ago, I found myself pregnant with baby #2, unemployed and raising a toddler. Our little angels cost money to raise, and we needed two incomes to keep life running as smoothly as we possibly…Continue

I'm Not Going To Try Anymore
I’m so tired of trying. It’s a repetitive process that never moves me forward. It feels like doubt before I even leave the starting line. And that dangling carrot is always miles ahead of me. If I squint I can even see it smirking back at me. Imagine a smirking carrot. It’s not intimidating, it’s condescending. I want to sneak up behind it and bite off its root - its foundation.
But I know…

Progress is inevitable. It is facts that today, most of us have phones with a greater capacity and capabilities than computers that sent the first man to the moon. Still, as in all things, it is not about what you have but how you use it that counts. Think of a typical teenage kid with a smartphone, it is true that that kid has an access to the internet, the most incredible data storage in the world, where he or she could find almost any information that they need, this is still probably not…Continue

t’s a cliché for a reason–life happens when you are busy making plans. I filmed this 33 weeks pregnancy vlog in a state of blissful ignorance, one day before my pre-term labor adventure began!
In the video, I talk about how I’m enjoying pregnancy but have so much to do that I wouldn’t mind if this baby stayed in a couple of months past the due date. Boy, was I mistaken!
The next morning, I was rushed to…Continue
