It seems to me that when we become parents others and often ourselves, have the unrealistic expectation that we have it all together. It is as if the moment your child is born you are expected to now be all-knowing, no mistake-making, grown up wonder parent. There have been times that I've felt that someone… Continue reading Growing Together
It's been quite a while since I've written. There are times when life takes over and writer's block is more than a nuisance. In the spirit of Christmas I feel that I should share a bit of what has been on my mind this season. Since I can remember I never really got a whole… Continue reading Tis’ The Season
Whew! The only way I know how to begin this is just to jump right in. This year has been hell for a lot of people including myself. There have been some amazing things as well and I would be ungrateful not to mention how blessed we are. We celebrated one year in our new… Continue reading Some Days the Mountain Is Too Big
It's so hard to let our kids be independent. At least it is for me. Mama's always there to kiss the scrapes and mend the heart. No matter what happens they always know the one person they can count on is mom. Likewise, we're dependent on that need. I love that my son still needs… Continue reading Blooming.
Enter March 2020 and the rise of the novel coronavirus. Things as we know it have forever changed. During unprecedented times of change I feel as though we have two choices; to sit on the sidelines and be bystanders OR find new roads to journey on.

This year, I like so many others, had hopes and plans for this year to be the best yet. We all had trips planned, events to go to, friends to visit and gatherings to attend.

I’m sitting in what is usually my kids drop off line at the rear of his school to pick up his assigned Chromebook for this school year. Usually by this time we would have picked up a school supply list from Walmart and gotten all the necessary items. Fighting crowds of other parents waiting until… Continue reading Virtual Learning 2020

I’m just going to be honest from the jump and tell you that I co-slept with… Continue reading Co-sleeping.
Whew. Here we go. Before 2020 everyone was saying this is my year. 2020 is about to be LIT. Hot girl summer all 2020. 2020 is going to be the best year yet. Baby!!! We were all wrong. 2020 has come in here and put the brakes on for everything we had planned. But isn’t… Continue reading Brown Skin.
I’ve found that if I wake up at 5:30am before everyone else in the family I can be alone for about an hour. On these mornings I make a cup of coffee, maybe a bagel, grab my pen and paper and write a bit. I have the opportunity to start my day with a clear… Continue reading Night Owl. Mama Owl.
