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

A man and a woman meet on an internet dating site. After communicating for several months, the man asks the woman to meet him “somewhere”; he wants her to pick the place. She suggests a nearby cafe, a place where any number of inexpensive beverages can be had, seating is plentiful, lighting is good, and she can summon back-up if he proves to be a dangerous psychopath.
He agrees. Date and time are set. He has family in her area, and… Continue

You're reading it here first! Remember reading about how I let Jaliyah cry it out for a few minutes
? Well..this morning we came downstairs for a morning bottle, after she ate I laid her on the floor for some play time like we do every morning. I went on to check my blog and realized it was suddenly VERY quiet, so I go to check on her and find this....

I know this is a touchy subject and everyone has their opinions, but "crying it out" seems to be my only option now. Jaliyah is a little over 4 months old now and she cries every time someone is not in her face or playing with her. Some may think 4 months is too early for this, and I used to think that. But I go to school full-time and have serious homework to do. Usually I just wait for her to go to bed and I do it, no matter how late I stay up, but now I'm getting behind - I only have 6… Continue

Guess what I got to do today?
TAKE A REAL SHOWER! I know, I know - you are jealous, and you should be - nanananana! It was a REAL shower, not a jump-in-speed-racer-3.5-minute-cut-yourself-shaving shower. I got to relaxxxxxx for a whole 15 minutes. I even got to do my version of a mommy-no-time pedicure. Whew, how exciting.

Today Jaliyah turned a whopping 4 months old (at 10:03pm to be precise). She can now..
- Roll from back to tummy, and tummy to back
- Yell at me
- Give me quite the attitude when yelling at me

One of the things that is almost near impossible to avoid when having a baby - diaper rash! How NOT fun..Jaliyah did not get her first diaper rash until a little after 2 months. I used just a regular, popular brand of cream which seemed to work pretty well and the rash was gone within a week. The diaper rash returned a few weeks later and at her DR appt, he prescribed her a prescription strength cream. That was recently, and I have been using this cream for about 7 days-ish. It did help a… Continue

As some of you know, as I continue on my adventure of being a new mommy, I am finding things that I think are must-have's - this is what I call Elisha's Essentials. Well..found a new one!
This stuff is amazing. Jaliyah had terrible dry skin on her face by her ears and eyebrows. I kept catching myself picking at it (i hate pealy skin). I tried regular baby lotions and those would help in the moment but not long term...Continue here @ Baybee… Continue

Jaliyah's daddy has been staying with us. About 2 days ago we were
argument about him not getting up with
Jaliyah in the middle of the night on his days off. I have only slept
about 6 hours in the past 3 days so I was
talked about it for awhile and he said he understood blah blah,
So then the night comes and Jaliyah… Continue

Jaliyah and I fell asleep on the couch last night and she woke up at
like 4 o'clock in the morning to eat. So..I go into the kitchen and let
me tell you, I have this weird spidey sense when it comes to spiders and
creepy crawly things, so anyways..I walk into the kitchen and my spidey
sense went off! I look down and suuuure enough there's a BIG earwig
crawling up the formula can. I immediately scream which makes Liyah cry
and start throwing things and poking it… Continue

Sometimes when I look at Liyah, I realize she IS going to grow up - as
sad as that may be :( I wonder what she is going to strive to be, what
she is going to wish on all the stars for. When I was younger my biggest
BIGGEST dream of all was to get married and have a family. I knew I
wanted to be like my mom and be a stay at home mom. I may have done
things a little backwards, and I may not be able to be a SAHM but I have
my Jaliyah and I couldn't be happier.… Continue

In real life, I'm 23 years old.
Yes, I'm 23 and I'm a mother and I'm married and WHAT?

Many parents view their children’s excess weight as an aesthetic issue. They worry their kids won’t be liked in school, won’t be picked in gym, and won’t be pursued by members of the opposite sex. According to the American Institute of Cancer Research, parents have a lot more than looks to be concerned about. New research shows that about 100,500 new cases of cancer are caused by obesity each year.
Obesity is known to cause many deleterious health effects but this study is one of the… Continue
