Malakhai is so photogenic. Anytime there’s a camera, he’s always posing. I love candid shots of him, especially these. This morning he slept in until 7 and I was thrilled because that means mama slept in. Typically he’s up by 5-5:30. At home he typically wears cloth diapers and he since birth. Yesterday I received… Continue reading Pampers Pure Diapers
Over the weekend, I moved all of my furniture into storage. Things are becoming real now. Malakhai and I moved into my mom’s spare bedroom. I’m so happy because this will afford me to pay off my debts faster, save money for a house, and to have help with taking care of my son. I’m… Continue reading Moving on…

Bullying is a serious matter at any age but especially so with children because they haven’t quite yet got expressing their feelings… Continue reading Suicide in Elementary
As babies, they can’t verbally express themselves. Their only form of communication is crying. As they grow older into toddlers and kids, they can better say what is bothering them. However, that does not mean they are emotionally aware. They can say what is bothering them, but they can’t quite yet identify the emotion that… Continue reading Raising an Emotionally Aware Child
I get this question so often about how my skin is so clear and smooth. I even have people ask what kind of makeup I wear (I don’t wear any, btw).
