Currently sitting in my family room, while Josh is watching some car show and Brooklyn is eating Orange slices and drinking milk while acting enthralled in this car show with daddy, while I sit here with a loss for words.

The Liebster Award was started back in 2011 and is a way to showcase new and upcoming bloggers. It also helps drive more traffic to those new bloggers websites and helps continue to build their community.Read More »
What is it about 3 day weekends that we think our kids will fully be potty trained and all set to go? I mean really, depending on your kid’s age, all they’ve known for last however many years is to pee in their diaper whenever and wherever they need to go. And now, we ask of them to only go in one place consistently with no accidents in a matter of three days? Yea, right, because that is easy, no problem.
It took me a little longer to write this post, as you can imagine, it’s not the most exciting thing to talk about, nor does it bring joy. With just celebrating another anniversary of my dad’s passing, I felt I wanted to write and express my feelings on death itself and of my experience I went through with my father’s passing.
It’s one of those experiences in life that no one really wants to happen, but we all know it’s inevitable. Out of our control. It’s going to happen whether we like it or not.

As women transition into motherhood, they slowly lose themselves. The transition into motherhood is an experience no woman is completely prepared for both emotionally or mentally. It’s like disowning yourself, but your pre-mommy self, slowly fading away from your interests and passions without even realizing it is happening. At some point, all mothers will cross this path into parenting. Waking up one day and not even able to answer the most basic questions like: When was the last time you read and finished a book? What are your interests and hobbies? When was the last time you enjoyed doing something you love?
When you become a Mother, trying to figure out who the new you is, aside from being “Mom”, is a process of self-discovery. Finding a whole new identity, a whole new you, as the previous identity no longer exists and you have been given a blank-slate to create a new one.
Before being a mother, I felt like I had my life under control.
Let’s face it, the daily demand of a mother cramming everything in her already jam packed schedule are endless, then trying to find time to yourself to take care of yourself seems hopeless. Am I right? I mean think about it. You have the daily tasks of keeping up with the home, which are never ending. The finances, preparing healthy meals, grocery shopping, setting your schedule, to day-to-day errands, after-school activities or sports for your children, doctors’ appointments, being involved in any church related events or charities; and not to mention any of the mothers who also hold down a full-time job while juggling the demand of a family. It is simply a lot to take in when times get super busy, which is why exercise/ fitness is usually the first to go. Read More »
Let me ask you this, when was the last time you had alone time with your spouse? When was the last time you two went out, alone, NO KIDS? Do you feel like it is a constant struggle in life balancing your time between both your spouse and children? If you’ve answered yes, yes, YES!! to all those questions, than you are in the same boat as myself. Welcome to the club! Haha! No seriously! There is a club. A club of mother’s, father’s, both parents who spend their lives struggling between maintaining a healthy and successful life balance between children and married life.
Are you asking yourself why you are here reading this? What’s my purpose in writing this blog? Will I be able to produce enough content to entertain you with my everyday struggles of Motherhood? Well before I start out by sharing some of my personal challenges and everyday struggles that have really shaped the mother I am today. I should start with answering some of those questions you are probably asking yourself right about now.
