The opportunity to see a room full of passionate, hard-working, and business savvy black women cannot be described in words. As you know, we believe that it takes a Nation to support a mom, and this event was the true depiction of support. There were several quotes that were so powerful and intentionally placed all over the event space. There were two quotes that stuck with me. “Real Queens Fix Each Other’s Crowns” and “Behind Every Great Woman, Are Great Women”. LOVE. THESE. QUOTES!!! Find ways to get behind other women, build them up, support their cause, fix each other’s crowns, collaborate, connect, and succeed!!

Are you ready for a getaway? A kid-free getaway? Would you like to know how to travel without your kids and soak up some much needed baecay time?

We’re encouraging and empowering every mom to love yourself inside and out! So join us as we celebrate our Mommi bodies by emailing us today, July 26, 2019 a photo in your favorite swimsuit to info@mommination.com

The Lion King, the first time many of us cried in the movies, fell in love with Africa and learned what Hakuna Matata meant…And just in case you haven’t heard of Hakuna Matata (it can be our little secret) it’s a wonderful phrase and no passing craze… it means no worries for the rest of your days, a problem-free philosophy, Hakuna Matata!

For those who’ve been living under a rock, we’ll break down this entire movement for you! A Hot Girl Summer is a call to action to secure the bag, have fun, embrace your inner freak, focus on yourself and do what makes YOU happy, live out loud, put you first, exude confidence, and not give a damn what anyone has to think about it!

Protective styles are great for the summer, especially for black and brown Mommies and daughters swimming, vacationing, and summer camping....

To all of my fellow first time mommies out there, please listen up. Take care of you. Sometimes separation anxiety (for you and baby) and mommy guilt make it hard to leave your baby, but it’s important to make time for yourself. Being a mother is too great of a responsibility for you to not be at your best. So whatever it is that brings you peace, joy, happiness, balance, and relaxation, as long as it’s legal, DO IT! It may be hard to make the initial step, but once you get on the other side, you’ll be so glad that you did it.

I wish people were able to come together to have the same level of conversation about race in America and…

Well, we’re here for you!While you were spending hours on IG, like the rest of us, an exciting new platform launched for black moms, by black moms!MommiNation brings together over 25 mommi bloggers on one platform sharing the real about motherhood! No topic is too small, too controversial or too overdone for us. We cover it all!We believe it takes a village to raise a child and a nation to support a mom! Welcome to your nation!

I literally laughed out loud and thought, this is about as true as everyone claiming to be “Living Their Best Life” and we all know just how true that is. After listening to the song again I’ll be the first to admit, while I was extremely entertained, I was left utterly confused. Are they serious? Are they making a mockery out of generational infidelity which runs rampant in the Black community? Nobody is actually taking this song serious right? After scrolling through the internet, I landed on the one comment that seemed to sum it all up for me, “This is a whole Jussie Smollett ass lie!” I died! This person is absolutely right, the idea sounds good and it’s something we really want to believe but of course we all know better! So, as we sit back and watch some of the most ignominious of men across the nation take this blasted pledge of “attempted fidelity,” I’m sure many women, like myself, are left bewildered by this entire movement.

Easing into mommyhood, Sanya Richards-Ross looked into the digital space and noticed a void and a two-fold opportunity: to build a platform that celebrates the entirety of motherhood and womanhood and to create a support system as she transitioned from sports into motherhood. So she founded, the digital platform, MommiNation.com.

The recent news of everything happening in Sudan is absolutely heartbreaking!I’m sure we’ve all scrolled Instagram and seen posts, or we’ve gotten alerts from CNN and similar news apps but we want to pull it all together for you in one place so that you can understand what’s going on and support if you feel compelled.So let’s start from the top….

I remember one thing that I’ll never forget that I asked him one day when he was walking down the stairs. I said to him “Is it ok if I call you Daddy Jerritt since you aren’t going anywhere soon?”. He said back to me “Do you want to call me that?”. From that point on, I KNEW that I wanted him to be the one I call “Dad” for the rest of my life.

This weekend I sat down with my entire family to watch NetFlix’s “When They See Us”, created by Ms. Ava DuVernay; about the “Central Park 5” bka the “Exonerated 5”. The miniseries was released on May 31st and has received a lot of buzz, rightfully so. It was masterfully done and I am so glad that the REAL story has been told.

Clearly, I did something wrong! It was apparent that I sent a message that I did not have unconditional love…

How could you let this happen?
And then I thought about it a bit, and I realized—if I’m being honest—that I too have put my children into harm’s way on more than one occasion.

The pro-life vs pro choice debate has been a long-standing debate that has created division of people in all circles. With the recent national news of abortion law changes, this division has become more evident. This article is intended, not to support either argument or perpetuate the division. But instead, this article is to inform the Nation of the recent activity surrounding this issue and start an open dialogue to support and respect our difference in opinions.

Initially, my plan was to start this open letter by declaring that you are the abortion your mothers should have had, but I opted not to go that route. Instead, I’ll come from a space of compassion and use your ignorance as a teachable moment for us all.

I’ve never had an abortion so I can’t say how it feels to be in the position to make that decision. I can say that I’ve counseled hundreds of women who have had abortions. I talk to women daily who cringe when I review their obstetric history and they recount details of previous abortions; I can see the anticipation of judgment in their eyes. I reassure them that it’s not my place to judge their decisions but to help them with their current concerns. So with great certainty, I know that the choice to have an abortion is never easy.

I gained a new level of respect for Kim Kardashian’s parenting.  She understands that even though her kids are biracial, in this society, they are considered black. They are being raised with an awareness of their black culture, therefore, she practices and celebrates the customs.

After 4 kids, being with my husband for 3 years and approaching the other side of 35…  I wanna know I still got it PERIODT! Now, I’m not out here soliciting DMs, taking phone numbers or wearing next to nothing to get attention. But if and when a man walks past me and does a double take or tells me I have a beautiful smile in that flirtatious can I go further kinda way my ego gets a little boost and I be feelin’ all extra kaute!

“How?” can we continue his outstanding work, and how can I create a legacy now? Here are just a few ways you can create a legacy now.

MommiNation founder, Sanya Richards-Ross, was the special guest for XONecole’s inaugural Pjamamas & Lipstick event! With over 100 attendees, Sanya held court with Necole Kane, Dana Blair and Tracy G and no stone was left unturned. Not the typical panel discussion, these ladies dug deep and dished on many topics that ladies usually only talk about with their besties.

Nipsey lived his life the way many of us talk about and fantasize that we would. How cool would it be to own the building down the street from where you grew up? How awesome would it be to employ your community and create new opportunities for the improvised to better themselves? How important would it be to share life changing information with the peolple whi need it most? Nipsey dedicated his life to this!

Now as a post-college graduate who had to work her ass off to get into college (and grad school), I have a few things I need to get off my chest about all of this, but I can almost guarantee it’s not what you’re thinking…
