Hi Mommies! A little about me I’m new to the mommy and wife club. I’ve been married for 6 months...

Anytime I hear about someone I know getting married I’m so excited for them, part of me even envious dare…

I didn’t even think it was possible, but I am having the best sex of my ENTIRE life…after two kids and fourteen years of marriage. How can sex be this good when you have two people with super busy schedules, a needy two year old, and a six year old who still finds a reason to randomly come to your room at 3:00 a.m.?  And where was all this good sex when I was in my twenties with no kids?

I have to be honest with you, when I found out MommiNation was doing a series on love and relationships…

It was probably our longest day in pre-marital counseling. I mean we unearthed some hard truths when we got on...

This right here is something that we have a hard time talking about. For some women, as soon as the topic is brought up, we shut down. I mean, think about it. Your husband comes in expecting it from you, but he hasn’t even taken the trash out. Maybe he’s a lazy mama’s boy who, if he is honest with himself, is looking for a woman who will take care of him. However, he expects you to be willing and ready to give it to him whenever and where ever. What about trust? If you can’t trust him, you are definitely not going to be excited about giving it up. How can he expect you to just throw it at him when he can’t even stay on top of paying the bills? He MUST be crazy! What is this “it” that I’m referring to? Submission. Yeah, THAT word.

A few weeks back, a small viral firestorm was raised around a blog by Seth Adam Smith called “Marriage Isn’t…

Discussions dealing with submission in marriage are often heated and rife with judgment. This is because many people’s perception of...

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.

Have you ever sat back and wondered, “What the hell happened to my sex life?”— well just know you are not alone.

It’s unconventional, to say the least, but my three dads all get along fabulously and it makes family events MUCH…

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.

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!

You hear it time and time again, put your spouse first. Leave to cleave, yada yada yada and we do…

What do you do when your mind is consumed by one thing and one thing only? No matter how hard you try to stop thinking about it, you just can’t seem to push the thoughts out of your head. They slide in constantly throughout the day; while you’re in the shower, driving to work, riding the elevator, relaxing in the jacuzzi, hell even at church as you pray for forgiveness. When you aren’t spending countless hours allowing it to permeate your mind, you’re talking about it with your friends and God knows momma warned you never to do that.

It’s 2:00 am, I’m 7 months pregnant and I hear his phone go off. He slowly gets up, checks to see if I’m asleep and creeps carefully out of our bed. He goes into the bathroom and all I hear is: Hey is everything ok? Why are you calling me so late? Okay, I’ll make time to come see you. I don’t know when, but I’ll make sure its soon. I love you too.

We decided to adopt our son through the foster care system. I talk a whole lot about that here. For us, private adoption was never really on the table for considering. I really had a heart tug for welcoming a child into our family that was in the foster system. So we did the majority of our research in pursuit of that option and never looked back.

Clicking on it and skimming through the article I came across the part where she does say, “…Just making sure that we put each other first, even before the kids, as tough as that sounds.” I stopped right there, almost cursing her but not seeing what she was actually trying to say. I became a part of the generation that immediately judges before finding out all the details. I was feeling annoyed, but something told me to start from the beginning and keep reading. And I did.

Before we go any further, I must let you know after my first marriage failed, finding love and getting married again was far from my thoughts. Rooming separately, but still living with my soon to be ex-husband at the time, was more than enough on my plate.

I was adamant, confident, borderline obnoxious about the mother I would be and no one heard it more than my brother-in-law, Tyrell. He was the first of our close friends to become a parent, having his daughter, my goddaughter, while we were all still in college. Years later when he started dating my sister we spent a lot of time together. From the very beginning, Tyrell always prioritized his children. He would visit them every other weekend, almost 4 hours away, and never missed a birthday, Christmas or special occasion. I admired many of his parenting traits but always criticized him for being too lenient on his children.

It is important to note that this blog is not a generalization of a race as that would neither be…
