The worst parenting advice I ever heard

When you are pregnant, you become a magnate for unsolicited parenting advice. (This is one of those laws of nature like gravity or the inverse velocity equation of children and is unavoidable.)…

Europe with a toddler: 15 things I wish I knew beforehand

 "So, you want to bring your kid to Europe for a one month vacation extravaganza. Sounds like fun. You're nuts." (insert eye roll)

This is the reaction I got from about 90% of the people when I told them about my summer vacation plans. Me, my daughter Phoebe, and my husband were going to Paris,…

Dear Facebook friends: Is blue poop normal?

How Does A "Neat Freak" Deal With A Bathroom Remodel?

Ok.

Ooooo Kay.

In two days the bathroom remodel (that has been desperately needed for over 10 years) begins in full force.  Our cast iron tub will be demolished with a sledgehammer, our old parquet floor will be torn up, cracked sink thrown in the dumpster and the walls will come a tumblin' down.  I'm trying to focus on what the final product will be - not on the…

March Parenting Tip: Teach your Child to Lose Like a Champ

My boys just lost their first soccer game EVER.  When they realized the game was over and the score was 1-0, not in their favor, the looks on their faces were one of confusion. “Wait, what..we lost? I don’t understand what that means”.  All the parents looked at each other as we were standing on the sidelines…

Hard Conversations: Discussing Death with a Child

Every once in awhile something happens with us, and I’m torn about writing it. As a blogger, I don’t want my blog to necessarily come off as doom and gloom, but these things do come up. So bear with me as I get this off my chest. Perhaps it will help another parent out there.

Sunday night, Alex asked if I would snuggle with him in bed. I said fine, as the boys had Monday off from school. I’m not as strict about sleep on…

I am a self-proclaimed fashionista.

Clothes-horse, shoe-whore, handbag junkie...you name it, I'm all over it.

Ahhh, luckily for me, there's an app for that. =)

The Day I Discovered My Husband's Side Chick

The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried.  I’ve  known my husband for quite some time.  We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes.  From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies.  After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to  San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again.  Needless to say life is funny.  After 8 years  we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…

To My Sons: Don't Marry a Girl Who Won't Give You Her Last Chip

Dear Kaleb and Kaden,

By the time you are able to read this letter you will probably wonder just what in the world I was talking about.  Well, from the time  your first set of teeth cut your gums and grew, you two love food...especially SNACKS.  Any snacks your father and I had, both of you were front and center with big eyes and smiles repeatedly saying "please.. please...chips please...chips please".  Well at least you two had manners at an early age.  With manners like that, who…

Uh, You Weren't Planned

You know that Nana is very funny.  We all laugh at the stories she tells of mommy and uncle growing up and all of the funny and wonderfully weird things that we did growing up.  Now they aren’t as funny as the two of you, but maybe that’s because I’m partial to you two…then again, you two are quite the characters.  Your father and I can’t help but smile and laugh when we think of the things that you do or say, and not to mention the things that you do to each other.  It’s sheer…

How to effectively deal with tantrums

We've all been there, so don't worry if your child is not always an angel. Tantrums are real and happen to the nicest of children. A tantrum is defined as "an outburst or display of excited anger," and you must admit that we adults sometimes find ourselves having tantrums of our own.…

Narcissist vs Sociopath Personalities

Recently, I was reading the newspaper and came across Annie's Mailbox.  A reader had questioned about a family member possibly being a Sociopath.  I found the article fascinating, since I was under the belief that my recent ex is a Narcissist.  I decided to do some research to determine which he may be.  



Hopefully this will help others when dealing with a person with similar characteristics. 
From Annie's Mailbox -…

How to choose your baby's name

It is perhaps the first major decision you and your partner have to make for your baby. I am talking about choosing a name for your little angel! Indeed, the name you choose will have a huge impact on your child; some would even say that your child's name will shape his or her personality traits.…

What my pageant experiences will teach my daughters

I wasn't one of those Toddlers and Tiaras girls. Instead, my pageant journey began at the ripe old age of 11. There were sign-ups for the 1st annual (and what would be the last) Little Miss Greenbrier pageant and I was ready to literally dig my heels in the pageant scene.



My mom played it cool.…

"The talk"

 So I had THE question asked of me by my 6 year old daughter. You know the one, the one that turned me into a awkward and uncomfortable teenager. "Mommy, how does the baby get in a Mommy's belly?" She asks me while we are drawing at the art table. Her brothers were napping, so this Mommy and daughter bonding just took a whole big turn.







I panicked, what do I say? What is age appropriate? I want to give her the right…
