Mom Life Someone posted the question “who taught you how to be a mother”. I responded with “I think some things are learned from women in our lives (the good and the bad; what we want to be and don’t want to be). And then some things come naturally, for me anyway. It’s the motherly … Continue reading Mom; Wife; what does it mean?
I went through an adjustment period. A period where I was just trying to identify what the heck was going on with me. I was experiencing new emotions and had to rediscover who this “new me” was.
Hair Chronicles Part One So I’m losing my hair due to post-partum shedding. This started about three months after I gave birth. I had a relaxer and my hair texture had changed.

Being a first time mom is an experience, to say the least. God made sure to give me what I prayed for - a boy; oh the joy! When people ask “how motherhood is going” my response is: “If I’m being honest, some days are great and I love it and other days, I’m like ‘WHAT DID … Continue reading So you say you want a baby, huh?
Pregnancy Let me first start out by saying my pregnancy was amazing! I enjoyed every day, week and month leading up to the birth of my son. I made sure to stay in the best shape I could; I took a 6 week prenatal yoga class (weeks 24 – 30) and did yoga on my … Continue reading Birth Story 2016
