Weekend Recap

I woke up Saturday morning to my smiling son at approx. 4:45AM. It was at that moment that I made a spontaneous decision to drive 3 hrs to my sister’s home in southern VA with E.K. to visit and spend time with my nieces. E.K. and I left at approx. 7:30AM and traveled the country…

Wine Down | Ramblings

The workday felt so long today. It seemed as though everyone needed something or wanted to complain about something. Most would think that the fact that I work from home full-time, I wouldn’t have to deal with some of the idiocies most people deal with in an office environment. That would be a false assumption….

Is it Ever O.K. to Yell at a Stranger’s Child?

It has been a interesting day. I sold a handbag of mine on Poshmark and went to the USPS to drop it off and get a receipt this morning. While in line, there was a young woman in front of me who was there with her two (2) sons. Her sons appeared to be approx….

What’s for Dinner tonight?

In an effort to be more budget focused, I’ve been trying my hand at meal planning. I found a recipe on Pinterest that looked easy, healthy, and yummy so I figured I’d give it a try… The recipe called for italian sausage, bell peppers, onions, and a mix of vegetables. On a scale of 1…

WIMDB for Travel?

What’s in my diaper bag for travel via airplane? The husband, E.K., and I took a trip to Chicago for a family function a week or so ago. It was the very first time we traveled with E.K. and his first time on a airplane. E.K. just turned 9 months old, so I was concerned…

Super-momming Ain’t Easy

Being a wife has its challenges at times… then you throw being a new mom into the mix and life can get all kinds of convoluted. I’ve been married since 2014 and a mom since 2016. In this short time I have realized that I am a super woman in multiple ways. This blog entry…

It’s official….

… E.K. has sleep trained us (his parents)!!!! This little human has managed to train us to go into his room 2 to 4 times throughout the night and pat him on his back until he falls back to sleep. Here we were thinking we were doing the “gentle sleep training method” and this little super…

Sleep Training, Night Four

What is sleep? Who needs sleep? Clearly, I don’t need sleep.  – Exhausted Mom E.K. said “phuck your sleep training!” in baby talk. I’m convinced that’s what he is screaming at us when we let him sit in his crib screaming. How is it that someone so cute and lovable can turn into a raging…

JuJuBe is addictive…

I ordered the Jujube BRB in the queen of the nile print when I was 6 months pregnant. It was my first jujube purchase and I had already purchased a skip hop bag but wanted a backpack style diaper bag that was a bit more versatile. After doing some major research, I opted to go…

Sleep Training, Night Three

Whelp, so much for thinking it would be as simple as allowing E.K. to scream his heart out for one night and he’d be magically sleep trained, lol. [6:00pm] – E.K. was beyond exhausted. After dealing with is crankiness for a good 2+ hours, I gave in to bathing him and giving him his cereal…
