Mother’s Day Week Big Salute to all the Mommies out here raising your children, nurturing them and being so selfless in all that you do! I celebrate all Mom’s but Single Mom’s definitely hold a very special place in my heart. Why? Because I was one, and let me tell you….I know the struggle, Sis Single Mom = Super Mom I became a single Mom before my Daughter was even born, so my journey entering Motherhood was already stamped “SINGLE MOM.” No, I wasn’t out here scheming so let’s get that straight!

4 Moms, 4 Economic Backgrounds, 3 Different Races, countless Secrets… I just finished the 8 episode series Little Fire Everywhere on Hulu and the message resonated with me in many different ways.

As the audience we can quickly judge the decisions each Mother made in the series by wondering, “how could they” or even think “I would never,” but if we looked more closely at ourselves we would find a little of Mia, Elena, Linda and even Bebe within … Continue reading Little Fires Everywhere; The Various Depictions on Motherhood
In 2011 when I went natural….for the 1st time (yes, there’s levels to this) I did it for health reasons.

I was a new Mommi-to-be so I was trying to start on the healthiest foot that I could! Little did I know that this was a WHOLE MOVEMENT, a journey of self rediscovery and acceptance, and the beginning of a lesson in beauty that I would teach my baby girl for a lifetime! As … Continue reading I am not my Hair, or am I?

Super Mommy I think the greatest thing I’ve done for my Daughter as a baby was breastfeed her for as long as I did. 19 months to be exact, it could’ve gone on longer because it was difficult weening her off, but it was time to make that transition. You may ask why do I think feeding my baby is such an accomplishment? Well, because it was not an easy task at the start of it. We often see images in the media of the happy-go-lucky Mom breastfeeding her satisfied baby so beautifully, but in reality the process is sometimes … Continue reading The Best Choice For My Baby

Each day was redundant and I felt I was beginning to loose sight of what I wanted, but what did I want? What was my purpose here on this earth, because everyone has one, … Continue reading My Father My Identity
