In the year 2016, we are experiencing things we thought we would only experience in our history classes. People are threatening lynchings, KKK rallies are being held, black churches are being bombed, cops are being killed maliciously, people are marching for equality, and police brutality is rearing its ugly head.

I tried a few different methods to include training pants, letting him run around completely naked, and even the ongoing laundry cycle of underwear training.

Needless to say this has been an interesting experience thus far. We took a small break from the potty as I found that at the initial introduction Jayden had every interest but sitting on the potty. He would cry so much that after he actually peed in the potty he was unbothered by the excitement… More The Potty Chronicles
With each year comes a new year new me speech, but that is not what this is about. I am fine with the me that I look at everyday but this does not mean I cannot do better. My life is a canvas that I am still creating. My son is watching me and as… More Welcome to a new year…
With so much going on, I have not had a single moment to stop and write. I tend to be the type who does not stop to take a break as I am always getting into something. Often I feel I don’t have enough time in my day to accomplish everything on my to do… More A Much needed break….
