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?
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
The older I get, the more I find myself so frustrated with the structure and dynamics of The Black Family. Before you question my audacity during such a sensitive time, just continue... Imagine having a passion and love so deep for something all the while deeply despising it at the same time. This is the only… Continue reading I’m Upset
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

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

Maybe not, because it is not often that you are given enough space to even think about re-learning them, but maybe it is time to start creating that space. In a world that makes it a crime to take a break as a… Continue reading Re-Learning Them!
On my first day back to class this semester I had a professor tell me, “something is different about you, you have a different glow than you had last semester.” Crazy to think how fast and slow my break from mommying went by. Also crazy to think how effective the break was for me. I… Continue reading Summer Break Is Over
July’s post didn’t come to me as easy as the last few months. Spent a couple days wondering if I would have to come up with an excuse as to why I didn’t write it. To hear that Georgia has some of the strictest child maltreatment and abuse laws, not due to the fact that… Continue reading It’s Ok To Take A Break
There was no point before or during my pregnancy that I ever saw myself as a single woman with a 2 year old. Time after time I have looked at other women and not understood how one could conceive a child with someone they knew were not fit for longevity together. It was not until… Continue reading Mommies Are Human Too
