Stop Stereotyping Career Moms… (Don’t play with us)!

I recently seen a post about career moms not making good homemakers. This led me to create this post. It is assumed that if you have a career and you are a mother, you are more prone to neglect every other aspect of your life, bullshit. I even loss interest in this creators content after…

Uncomfortable conversations

My daughter was amazed that even at 13 she could possibly be approached with offers of sex, drugs and liquor. One day you are playing with Barbie, the next you are built better than Barbie and getting attention from the opposite sex. Growing up can bring on a mix of emotions for parents and children….

Changes and Children

I had to explain to my son that life would always be changing. Rarely will everything be constant, but change can be beneficial.

the WAHM and SAHM confusion…

Ditch the WAHM being a SAHM CONFUSION.  Since March I have been working remote due to the pandemic. It has been a mix of pleasure and testing my patience.

The Working Mom Chaos…

I recall a time I felt the entire pressure of being a working mom. I felt judged. I was already late to the parent meeting. I know they heard my heels clicking as fast as they could down the hall. I got myself together, clutched my purse and controlled my breathing. I found a seat…
