They say when you have kids, you become closer to your mother because you see things differently. You’ve become a mother so now you see the things she did and you relate. Having kids pushed me away from my mother. I see everything she did and didn’t do in a whole new light. I couldn’t … Continue reading Mother Issues
I like being fun with my hair, sometimes I wonder if people think I’m too old to being doing these things. Then I remember I don’t care what people think!! Life’s short!! Hair grows back!!!
I hope people know if I ever stop talking to them, it’s not because I am jealous of them. It’s because I don’t fucking like them.
It took me a while to see how our own communities could be “racist” towards our own kind. I think the micro-aggressions felt so normalized that I didn’t pay attention. “Your skin is so light and pretty, don’t go outside too much or it’s going to get dark!” “You don’t want your skin to get … Continue reading Colorism
It’s unbelievable to me how many people out there have kids just because they can. That’s IT. Here I am, a loving mother of 2. When I tell you I try SO hard to be a good mom, I mean it. Would I absolutely love to have another child? Maybe two? HECK YEAH. I LOVE … Continue reading Senses

Looking back at younger photos of myself always hurts me. My children look just like me. I see them when I see pictures of me. And when I think of what I went through with my parents, it hurts. I am here for my babies. I love and love and love them. I apologize when … Continue reading Inner Child
One thing I wish I can shout from the rooftops when you want to become a parent is you don’t just need to meet your child’s physical needs. While it’s a good start, of course. A child needs food, clothes, a place to live. Being financially responsible is obviously a huge step in parenthood. You … Continue reading Child preparedness
