A Letter to My Son

Dear Malakhai,

I remember when I first found out about you. My reaction wasn’t of joy but of pure sadness and disappointment. Not because I was single, but because I didn’t feel like a child fit into my life. As time went on, I realized that you were created for a reason and that alone had changed me. I’m not who I was 9 months ago. I’ve grown and morphed into a completely different woman: a woman that I never knew existed. As it is now time for your arrival, Idk how I feel about my seeing my heart outside my body, and that’s what you are: my heart. You are the greatest blessing that I could’ve ever received and I thank the universe (and I mean I guess your father, lol) for gifting you to me. I also thank you for choosing me to be your mother. You are loved by so many, more than you’ll ever know. A plethora of people are anticipating your arrival, but more importantly, mommy and daddy are. I want you to know that mommy is going to make sure you have the best life, a life that you deserve. You will never want for anything because mommy is a hustler. I say all of this to say that I love you so much and I can’t wait to shower you with my love and show you the world.

Love,

Your Anxiously Awaiting Mother

SmootiePie Baby and Belly Moisturizer

As a mommy-to-be, stretch marks are inevitable. For me, it’s been the dryness. As my belly expands, the dryer it gets and this moisturizer is life. Not only is it vegan, black owned and cruelty free (y’all know how important that combo is to me), it smells absolutely amazing.

I am the type who is prone to dry skin and I’m also conscious about products I use so close to my baby. Anything you put on your skin, your skin absorbs. That’s why I go for natural products by the likes of @lovesmootiepie.

I have to say this is moisturizer did take me by surprise. I immediately thought it was hard, kind of like coconut oil. To my astonishment, I dipped my finger in and it went straight through. It’s almost like a creamy butter that melts into this enriching oil. *

Needless to say, this mommy approves and I will definitely be using this on my baby love, Khai, once he is born.

The Honey Pot Co. Mommy-to-be Wash

Now this stuff right here my ninjas (because I don’t use that derogatory word) is the truth. I am absolutely picky when it comes to products for my vagina. She doesn’t like fragrances (she gets straight ignant with the yeast infections from fragranted products). This feminine wash is for mommies-to-be (but I’m sure any woman can use it). It’s fragrance free, vegan, cruelty free and black owned. Not only that, but it works like a charm. All my pregnant mommas and those who have had children, know this discharge is something else. This wash keeps me fresh and leaves me feeling clean.
