“If you leave that damn coat at school, don’t come home!”

Hey, I'm a black mom and I'm extra AF (as f*ck), if you aren't familiar with the acronym. LOL Excuse my French, but there is no better way to describe my parenting style when it comes to trying to prove a point to my kids.

Let me be candid, and keep it funky about co-parenting.

Everything is picture perfect now. You get on social media and the portrayal of a perfect life is the new norm.

Happy International Women’s Day

Today, I think of everything I have faced as a woman. Surprisingly, I have no shame when it comes to my struggles. Every setback. Every challenge. Every single "NO". Every single time I was called a ᗷITᑕᕼ. Every single time I was discredited and belittled. I survived. My head still held high. I am resilient. … Continue reading Happy International Women’s Day

He made these … Continue reading Tahnee’s Thoughts: Satisfied?
