When I think of women and our relationship with each other it seems to be love/hate. In our competitive society it seems that woman longs for that friendship and understanding that only another woman can offer. Yet we give in to judgment of that same kin. This kind of relationship spreads beyond being a woman and translates into all female roles, including and especially motherhood. It seems that truly excepting another woman’s choices, though not in agreement with your own, and without… Continue

You thank your child's team of therapists and teachers. You profusely thank the person who offers their seat on the subway. You thank the person who bags your groceries or pumps your gas. You even thank your kids for eating with no fuss or your baby for not squirming during a public bathroom Pamper change. Your days are filled with thanks...for everyone else.
But when was the last time someone offered thanks for you? Parents and caretakers are often forgotten, happily…

Join me for Sexy Mama Saturday's!
I decided to start a new series. Lets call it...sexy mama!! This series will be all about ways/tips/ideas to feel like your own person again. When we become mommy's we tend to forget about ourselves; but also as mommys, we put our babies and families before ourselves - so what about ways to feel like us again that don't take a lot of time? I think it… Continue

I know, I know.... Who still makes New Years Resolutions and actually takes them seriously? Continue
Well, in my attempt, no, "journey" is a better term... In my journey to find and maintain my recently distant, pre-parenthood sanity, I have made a firm commitment to develop and succeed in my New Years Resolutions...
This is a big deal... This is the first time, ever, that I have made a decision to develop a New Years Resolution and seriously commit to it. In the past, I simply made…

It is inevitable that sooner or later, our "precious angels" will challenge our authority and power as their parents. Little do they know, we are usually always a step ahead and have the benefit of knowing them better than they know themselves... Continue
My recommendations are to not force or use intimidation to "control" their behavior. Remember, even though we are parents, we still don't have the God given ability to "control" another human beings behavior and attempting this with a…

My little guy started teething and its the worst thing in the world. I dont know what to do sometimes and he gets so antsy cause I cant help him. I have tried orajel, teething rings and at times they work but
other times he just gets mad and goes on his marry way. He is so cute!
I guess its something we all have to go through and to be honest I am glad I am home to be able to take care of him and help him through this. Continue
He is a true blessing in my life and I am blessed to he…

Yesterday I was telling my husband that I don't ever remember our other two kids being so connected to me as a baby, as in connected at the hip
. Of course they loved their 'Mommy'
still do as teenagers, but have funny ways of showing it
and wanted to be with me, but this is a bit different.
With Hudson, if I stand up and attempt to walk out of the room, I have a whining combat crawler right behind me. It's quite pitiful, to say the least.… Continue

I have been pregnant since Mid May 2010.. Since this magical miracle of science occurred I have had ppl ask if we were planing to have anymore kids ( both them & myself ) not knowing the answer to that question was already in motion. I have suffered through horrible migraines, large amounts of… Continue

..Growing up, my favorite part of the year was the holiday season! I love the feeling in the atmosphere, the smells, the food, the changing leaves - everything! But..like a lot of other things, that feeling kind of faded as I got older. It wasn't the same because all the kids in my family were adults now and it just felt different. One of the main things I looked forward to when… Continue

Whole story here..
Part of becoming a mommy is having to think for someone other than yourself. You have to think what's best for your child, how a decision will affect them now and in the future. I had to make a VERY hard (for both myself and Jaliyah) decision recently, which also contributed to my short absence.
One of the decisions, that I am sure many of us have faced, is whether you and your SO should… Continue

So, there is quite a buzz in mommy-blogger land, about an article that recently appeared in Marie Claire magazine. The author, Katie Drummond, attended a Healthy Living Summit, that is hosted by six female, premier health, diet, and fitness bloggers. It seems, rather than showcasing these women's drive to spreading the… Continue

In 2004, I went to my OB. They drew blood & confirmed I was pregnant. When my OB came to my room, we discussed the complications I had with my first pregnancy. A few bouts of pneumonia had caused fetal complications, causing DJ to be born at 29 weeks. After considering this, my OB looked at me & said, "You're high risk. Your pneumonia's haven't been diagnosed, treated, or cured. You can te… Continue

What a crazy, CRAZY month September has been! Almost 3 weeks ago, my daughter finally started Kindergarten and, can I just say, that I don't think I have ever been this busy, nor have I ever second guessed myself more in my life than I have now?
It all started with some busing issues (courtesy busing cut due to state budget cuts. Had to pay a $398 fee!), and then between fundraisers (more payouts. Eek!), and helping Raelyn adjust to going to school 5 days a week (never mind the BOTH… Continue

Toy Story 3 was wonderful. And yes, at the end, I cried. I couldn't help but fast forward 10 years from now, when my lil mans--like Andy in Toy Story 3--will leave for college. And all that's left behind is a few cardboard boxes of their things. But… Continue

As most of you know, I am a full-time college student trying to get my business degree. I take some of the classes online to allow me to work and take care of my daughter. One of the joys annoyances of online classes is timed exams. Normally, this is not bad because quizzes are generally shorter tests. Final exams are a lot more intense and being that the class I had online this semester was a legal class, there was a lot to know and a… Continue

I am not a neat freak. I have written about this before, and I can tolerate a fair amount of mess around the house, but when there have been dishes sitting in the sink for four days and everyone has been walking by them as if they don’t exist...when it wasn’t my job to clean them up in the first… Continue
