Is this the future of shopping? I say No

We live in a fast paced world where parents are working more and more. There’s barely no such thing as a 9 to 5 anymore. There’s usually a variation to it all. But one thing that stays constant is a hungry ass family! Every time I look up somebody is…

Digital Detox

We’ve created digital monsters. I’m not a gadgets person per se – but I can admit I like stuff. I gave up on PCs after buying myself a Mac as a graduation gift. So now I am one of the Apple faithfuls. I now have an iPhone (who doesn’t?) and iPad…

I Haven’t Had a Weekend Off in 2 Years

News is a 24/7 type business. When you rollover at 3 a.m. after sleep has escaped you and you decide to turn on some 24 hour news network — those people you see are really at work WORKING at 3 a.m. There are others there working, too, overseeing it all. Even at 3 a.m.,…

Some People Give up Meat for Lent, We Did it Longer

Longer as in about two years. So why did I do it? For one to see if I could really do it. And lastly health reasons. About 89 percent of me believes that humans aren’t meant to consume meat. If that was the case, why can’t we eat it in…

New Year, New Parent

There is a meme that’s been going around that says “My goal as a parent is to raise children that don’t have to recover from their childhood.” That statement is so real. There are so many broken adults STILL trying to recover from broken childhoods. I personally know a few. This is…

My Husband is a Spoiled Brat

I knew that really getting into blogging would mean I’d have to get personal. This is one of those posts. This is one of the posts that have nothing to do with the kids… But instead the man that helped make them. Me and my husband are like day and…

Kicking a Habit

Old habits die hard. And I am proof of that. As parents we pass those bad habits along to our children unfortunately. In my case — my biggest challenges are my addiction to sugar (see cavities post where I damn near burst in tears). My other challenge: biting my nails….

A Village of Few

I often hear a common theme from older black folks about how people used to believe in “it takes a village.” How black folks looked out for one another. How the communities rallied around everyone’s child. I’m sorry but I don’t remember any of this. I think by the time I…

I Cried About Cavities

When I found out my kids had cavities I wanted to cry – I’m not sure if it was the $600+ bill I was looking at that I would ultimately pay out-of-pocket (insurance is a scam) to get their teeth back right – or the guilt I felt like I…

Fall is here!

The seasons are finally changing. It feels so much like that “you bet not go outside without a damn jacket on weather.” Being born in the winter I guess I was destined to hate summer. All summer all you hear from me is “it’s too hot for this” or “too…
