As time went on, however, daily sex routines turned into once in a while. Date nights were a thing that happened on occasion and minor disagreements turned into full blown arguments. The signs were there but often times we are blinded by the lust and the “love” that we miss them or sweep them under the rug

Congratulations! You are in the relationship that you always dreamed of whether you are married or just committed to the…

Then again, if I look a little closer, maybe I look exactly like what depression looks like. In my mind, depression looks like sadness, lethargy, malaise. In my head, depression looks like you stop smiling, you stop looking happy, you stop getting things done. When I think about it, maybe I do look like depression; it’s just that the happy-happy-joy-joy mask that I wear for the world is really freaking good.  

As a single mommi, I am always looking for ways to entertain my one-year-old daughter. Most days it’s usually just…

Breastfeeding, the most beautiful and natural experience that many mothers will have with their little ones. While I’m not here to debate if breast is best, when making the decision to breastfeed you are sacrificing some things: alcohol, bad eating habits and possibly great sex to name a few.

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. 

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.

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.

I’ve made it through my first year of motherhood! Sh*t that was fast! The first year as a single mom…

HG is a bitch and I apologize for the language but she is, there literally aren’t any other words to describe her evil and destructive ways.

I did not need validation from anyone else. I knew I was doing an amazing job, with or without a man in the house. My son was respectful, loving, caring, hardworking, and smart!

“Nobody can ever love you like I do. Not because they won’t try, not because you aren’t worthy but because…

After finding out I was pregnant with triplets, so many questions came to mind. I’m 4’11, 125n lbs soaking wet. How would I be able to carry 3 healthy babies to full term (34-35 weeks is considered full term for triplets) in my petite body?
