I really thought me and Desmond had gotten so lucky that we would be able to say, we couldn't relate to our kid dropping to the ground while kicking his feet and screaming. Especially given that Aiden is able to have and carry full conversations about when he's upset and why. It wasn't until last… Continue reading Now We’re Doing Tantrums
My very favorite time of the month is when my power is randomly turned off & we have no Wifi to operate the smart devices in our home, including the TV, said no one ever. At least, that's what you'd think living in such a tech loving society. Last month, we found ourselves waking up… Continue reading Gratitude, Do You Know What It Means?
Listening to a speech by Will Smith last week there was a line that stuck out to me. "Everyday we wake up, we are choosing sh*t that is not in our own best interest." It sparked a thought in my head, of all the choices I make for myself on a daily basis. It made… Continue reading Who Are You Choosing?
As I have thought about things to write on, I have tried to process how to share my experience as a mother during such a stressful time. I've now had my first seizure at 25 years old. The frustrations of being in the house with a toddler for five months, is something I haven't been… Continue reading Judge Me Not

Today I woke up not really knowing how I feel, but knowing that a cloud was over me. I tried getting out of bed before Aiden to find a sense of peace, I tried working out despite my mind telling me to climb back in bed & sleep or cry. I tried seeking reasons I… Continue reading Today is 6/4/2020
Funny how in the beginning of quarantine, I was in bliss with finding time to embrace solitude. Two months later and I have now realized that this can also be a formula for leading someone into insanity. Sitting at home for 8-9 weeks at a time, with a toddler who can only understand current times… Continue reading Quarantine Learning
Solitude and its power has to be one of the most underrated things to value. I have been wondering why I feel so calm with everything going on around us in the world. It was not until I began writing that I realized exactly why I am in a state of calmness. It is in… Continue reading Solitude
Isn't it funny how adults will acknowledge that children are sponges in all areas, BUT energy and emotions. I have always found frustration in adults not allowing their children to have emotions as it relates to being sad, mad, or frustrated. Especially when children are picking this up from the adults around them who are… Continue reading Keep The Same Energy
How can you teach your child(ren) who they are, if you have no clue who you are? A question I struggled with answering since separation from my child's father. As shared before, being alone is something I never had to experience. From teen-adulthood I formed an identity around my relationship further losing sight of a… Continue reading 24
