Two under Two My Sister and I are the best of friends. We are 15 months apart and grew up…

Today is my and my husband’s four year anniversary and I just want to take a moment to gush over the amazing man he has become. Over the course of our ten-year relationship, we’ve had lots of ups and downs, but he has always been the most thoughtful man I know. As we get more mature and seasoned in our relationship he has become so many more “mosts” and I’m realizing I must have prayed the “Ciara prayer” and didn’t know it!

What can I say, it’s an age-old complaint. My postpartum baby body is giving me the blues. I’ve always been…

In the days following I remember not wanting to wake up. It’s the emptiest feeling in the world, going home, with no baby, after being pregnant. My stomach still looked like I had just given birth and I started to produce milk. My ears were constantly ringing and I just felt like I was in a fog. From that day on, Tyrell never went back into our restroom. The grieving process brought us closer than ever, but it was tough to go through. Once a child is born you have to have some sort of burial. She was at the funeral home and we had to decide whether to bury or cremate.

For most of us we become a mother the day we find out we are pregnant. Our thinking changes. Our…

The stereotypical baby daddy. We all know one. If he isn’t yours, he’s your friends or your cousins. You may have seen him on tv on a court or reality show. You don’t know how you know one but YOU DO…..
But how would you feel, do you keep the same energy, if this was all about a MOM?

The Mommi journey is a long one. With a roller coaster of emotions and experiences. Once you find out you’re pregnant I suggest joining the Mommination approved What To Expect (when you’re expecting) app. It’s a great place to learn from and share with a community of women who are going through the journey at the exact time as you! It’s helpful during pregnancy and beyond. My eldest is two and I still check in with that community to see what’s normal, whats not and how other two year olds are developing.

YOU DON’T KNOW, WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW I absolutely hate being a step parent! Sound harsh? Hear me out. I…

I was one of those lucky people who always knew what I wanted to do. It wavered once or twice…

It’s October 2016. Less than two years into our marriage, I’m five months pregnant and my husband starts dropping hints about the kids moving in. It wasn’t the first time he’d said this and quite frankly I thought he was just talking. I didn’t think it would ever actually come to fruition for a multitude of reasons: I didn’t think the kids would leave their mom and I didn’t think their mom would let them leave. I didn’t ask many questions, though, since I knew he wasn’t making the final decision. I figured he’d tell me what he knew when he knew it.
