    Mother’s Day 2018 Gift Guide

    Pretty sure this is my first Mother’s Day as a full-time blogger. Aside from that being completely awesome and a huge accomplishment in itself, it’s also probably why I waited till Mother’s Day in Mexico to write my Mother’s Day Gift Guide. So apologies in advance for the super tardy blog post…but if you’re a working mom too, I think…

    The Top 5 Books for Toddlers

    It is so important to always be teaching young children. Their minds are like sponges, craving knowledge! One thing Cash and I do every night is read a book. We both put on our pj’s and hop into his bed for some quality learning and wind-down time.It’s funny because most of our books are about food, hehe! I’ve said it…

    Anxiety Ease

    It’s normal to feel anxious and nervous from time to time. A big job promotion, a short deadline on a huge project, a first date; all these things are bound to ruffle your feathers every once in awhile.

    Co Parenting

    There’s this really weird look I get when I tell people I’m still friends with my ex, or as I like to call him, My Baby Daddy (side note: he calls me Baby Momma). It’s a bit like a deer in headlights or that I’m about to say “JUST KIDDING” and walk away. But it’s actually the truth. We are…

    A hyper sensitized world aka 2016

    Let’s start from the beginning. Yesterday I went to a football game with some friends. Most of them were guys but a few women were there too. To be honest, I usually prefer hanging out with guys because there’s less drama, less competition, and fewer bathroom breaks. However, a few things happened yesterday to make me reconsider hanging out with…

    A Strong Single Mom

    Dear Quick-to-Judge I see you — staring at me with a baby on my hip,┬áIt’s obvious I’m “a little frantic.” I see how fast you judge me and how quickly your eyes go to my wedding finger. There’s no ring on there. Trust me I’ve checked. But don’t feel sorry for me, don’t think my life is a wreck, that…
