5 WAYS TO AVOID CO-PARENTING DRAMA

Being a single parent has many challenges, but so does co-parenting. Co-parenting takes a large amount of maturity on both ends. It takes more teamwork than some parents actually want to engage in. I disagree when they say co-parenting is all about the child and that you have to immerse your feelings in the child’s needs. Yes,…

Sis, I’m Good, We’re Good…

We have all become a bunch of Peeping Toms these days.  It is normal for an average person to scroll down their Instagram before they wash their own butt. Matter of fact, social media has damn near replaced the News. As soon as, a celebrity dies, I see RIP post going down the Facebook thread, that usually…

I talked to A Mom Exotic Dancer…

Harsh judgement came off the tongues from mostly moms. I asked a group of moms what they thought about Stripper Moms. I got a few eye rolls. I was surprised too because most moms understand the struggles that come with providing for kids. Especially single moms and especially when you have more than one child….

#MOMGOALS with Tahnee Cole: Chynita Kirkman

I know this beautiful mom personally, but I never knew she was struggling with anxiety. It is funny how we know people by face, but we do not know their struggle or their journey. Because of that, we are sometimes judgemental of one another. Not on this platform. My blog is to uplift, inspire and…

Happy International Women’s Day

Today, I think of everything I have faced as a woman. Surprisingly, I am far from ashamed of the struggle. Every setback. Every challenge. Every single “NO”. Every single time I was called a bitch. Every single time I was discredited and belittled. I survived. My head still held high. I am resilient. I am…

A Different Approach

As I type this post I am shaking… I am not a scary person. I trust my abilities and I have faith in myself. I like to think of myself as brave. Yet, when it comes to my children there are times that I lose complete confidence in myself. I have fears that are beyond my…

2 Kids, 1 Job and No Man…

April 3, 2017,  felt like a regular Monday. Well actually it didn’t, I was supposed to be going in late to work due to a dentist appointment. I couldn’t help but notice the constant buzzing of my phone while I was getting dressed.  My co-worker was calling me. Matter of fact, she had called me few times which was unusual…

#MOMGOALS with Tahnee Cole

Every so often, I will dedicate a post to a significant professional mom who is setting and smashing goals.  I decided to jumpstart this week off with me. I am Tahnee Cole, the founder and blogger of Black Pumps Pink Slippers. I dedicate this blog platform to build a community for all my career driven moms across the world. A little…

Tahnee’s Thoughts: Satisfied?

I was romantically involved with a man who questioned would I ever be satisfied.   He would joke about my lack of contentment. Saying that no matter what goals I smashed, or new endeavors I engaged in I wanted more. Leading him to believe that I will also grow tired of our relationship. He made these…

A Birthday Letter to Me…

Dear Tahnee, I want to apologize to you for ever doubting you. I want to say sorry for abusing your body. I apologize for the part I played, helping you engage in mindless intimate connections to recover from pain from your ex (exes). I want to say sorry for the days I starved you, over-working you for a company who could…
