ad the first line “because you failed to attend the mandatory court hearing, paternity has been determined” and YOU ARE THE FATHER! (in my judgmental, condescending Murry voice). I’m sure those were not the words verbatim but, that’s what I heard ringing in my head like a fire alarm. My heart dropped, my anxiety immediately rose, and I could literally feel my world spinning.

Alright Mommies, I have a confession….now judge me all you want, but I tend to keep things a little too…

Ah, the married life. It’s a wonderful adventure isn’t it? When I was younger I pictured myself meeting the man…

At MommiNation we LOVE a good podcast! If you can’t listen, and we highly suggest you do, here is the…

“Families are a blessing and blah blah—”, look I don’t need to hear all that. I know how great my family is, but it’s hard being “on” all the time. Remembering everything hubs forgets (cuz they forget a lot), constantly reminding my 8-year old that deodorant is non-negotiable, and fussing at a 1yr old to drink from a sippy cup instead of my lopsided boobs (all her fault btw) are daily tasks. Not to mention remembering to comment back to my audience on IG cuz God forbid the algorithm punishes me for not engaging fast enough.

I felt like I waited for this day forever and couldn’t wait to get home, but now the day has come and I didn’t want to leave the hospital. I’m not gonna lie, I was scared. For the last month I’ve had the help of the nurses, to help change, feed, and keep the babies on a routine.

My ketchup ran out a couple of weeks ago and no matter how many times I’ve stopped by the market I forget to get more. Certain things my son eats I have to dab a little ketchup to get him to eat it.For lunch I remembered once again we were out and I’m getting frustrated looking for random ketchup packets to no avail and suddenly I look up and  these have been there for months and I completely forgot.

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

I was pregnant with my first child at twenty-three years old and two years into my first marriage. It was also nearing the time to start my masters degree program. With no experience of taking care of a baby, changing diapers, or being alone with a baby, I had to prepare myself. Filling up with knowledge from the most popular baby books What to expect when you’re expecting and What to expect the first year were my go to. Unknowingly, the day I became a mom changed me.

I am filled with so many different emotions whenever I reflect on the day that I became a mom. This eventful day consisted of highs, lows, excitement, fear, frustration, happiness and sadness. Are you ready for this? OK…here goes.

Our recent adventures took us to the Muncie Children’s Museum in Downtown Muncie. This hidden gem provided a day of fun…

I had always heard people talk about postpartum depression, but I’d never heard much about prenatal depression. Like many mothers, I often worried about depression after giving birth that the thought of being depressed while being pregnant was never something I had ever imagined. I knew that whenever God would bless me with a child, I would be the happiest person alive. When it actually happened, that was not the case.

As moms we do not have a lot of (or any) time to ourselves. However, here are a few quick escapes I suggest for your own sanity. Your household can only be at its best when mommy has some semblance of inner peace and happiness.

Wives! We should pray about a sexless marriage every day, and here is why!

After I prayed this prayer, I was not too thrilled with the answer. I had a deep feeling in my gut that it was best to stay home. I wasn’t sure how long, but knew this was needed for these specific children God had given me.

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