Apparently I have caused quite a stir on my Twitter for my recent video entitled Dear Lawmakers. If you aren’t familiar with the video it can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/_eK7vcqAjzY This video came on the heels of several laws being passed making it illegal for women to choose abortion, and that these women, along with the physicians performing the acts, could be prosecuted. I attempted … Continue reading Tweet

Mental Health

May is Mental Health Awareness month, so I couldn’t go without mentioning the impact that mental health has had on my families lives. It has had a crucial impact on my children, and on their relationships with friends, significant others, and on their own family members. I am unsure with all of the advancements that this country is making, why mental health still has such … Continue reading Mental Health

Communication

Communication. I am so sad about our future generation. This generation lies so heavily on our phones, I-pads, and technology in general that it’s nearly impossible to teach them how to have a communication with one another. Each and every one of us have been in a situation where we have hit send on a text only to wonder and hope that it isn’t taken … Continue reading Communication

Co-Parenting

Co-Parenting, or lack thereof can be trying for all of us. I am on your Twitter, so I see so many of you struggling on this front with your baby daddies, or your baby mamas and I am just appalled that people believe that their actions are okay. In my situation, I am co-parenting with a narcissist. That may apply to you, and it may … Continue reading Co-Parenting

I kid about the last one, but ya’ll I just do not … Continue reading Driving

Updates

I know each of you can look at the dates and see that I posted two blogs in one day, and the fact is you are correct. Between the holidays and school starting back, I literally started the mom friends post in December and didn’t get around to finishing it until today. Such is life. You barely have time to take a breath most days, … Continue reading Updates

Mom Friends

This is just a quick blog on my mom friends. Mom friends are the women you surround yourself with who stick with you through thick and thin, lift you up when you are down and continue to help you through the struggles that are child rearing. It doesn’t matter if there is an age gap in your children, what matters is that they are there … Continue reading Mom Friends

The past 48 hours we have celebrated some small victories. This came on the heels of the past week which was filled with more bad decisions. On Thursday, I had signed up both girls for Taekwondo. After talking with different professionals, I felt this would offer them a way of channeling their anger and aggression from the divorce as well as everything else going on. … Continue reading 48

Seventeen. Seventeen years ago today, I gave birth to an 8 pound, 15 ounce baby girl. She would be my last baby to carry, due to health complications. Although I anticipated her birth and had two other children at home, I was still riddled with anxiety about having a new baby, making sure she was okay, and having a heart big enough to love her … Continue reading 17
