ESSENTIAL MOMMI DURING A PANDEMIC:

Right now, we are currently dealing with Covid-19. My world can all turn upside down if I am exposed to a positive COVID patient. What would that mean for you as a mommi? As an essential mommi, I would have to step away from both jobs (mommi and nurse) until I’m well. That’s the side that no one talks about!

Breastfeeding, while natural, is often difficult. Many problems can creep in and threaten to stop you from breastfeeding. The good news is that virtually every problem that comes along with breastfeeding can be fixed. 

MOMMI, MOMMI, MOMMI the name we will hear forever until we depart this earth, but OMG can’t our children understand how to use it sparingly?!?  Now don’t get me wrong, I have always wanted to be a mother and I am a proud mother of two and love to hear my name, but if my children call my name one more DAMN time, I think I’m gonna scream!  I remember feeling like this when my firstborn was ages 3 and up and now even with the second child who is 4.

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…

I had bought into the dream of literally having it all at every moment of the day, and I was the one who suffered the most from that illusion. It is practically impossible to “do it all” or “have it all” without sacrificing something. Something always has to give. No matter how much help you get, you’re still only one you, and that’s a good thing. So, what to do?  Be present.

I’d be lying if I said becoming a mother hasn’t taken over in all areas of my life. —at work, if something comes up, my response, “well y’all just gotta figure it out”  because guess what— I’m a mom first. It’s girls night and something comes up, “Sorry ladies I know we’ve been planning this forever, but I gotta cancel”—- I’m a mom first. I find myself reiterating the fact being a mom is number one when it comes to many areas of my life, and in most areas, I’m finding that people won’t always be happy with you prioritizing being a mother first. *Kanye shrug*Not my problem.

I woke up with angst in my heart. Probably because I went to bed listening to one of my favorite...

It was surreal, indescribable, it was Magical!Seeing my baby for the first time rocked my world! I couldn’t do anything but scream and cry, she was perfect! I couldn’t believe she was actually mine, so many emotions ran through my mind,  I was smitten.
