Did you Read to me When I was a Newborn?

My youngest is my mini Curious George, that is what I call him most days because he has such an inquisitive mind. The questions my dear son comes up with always amaze me, while also taking me back for a moment where I am at a loss for an answer. This is the child who has encouraged me to be more creative as a Mama and to have a more open mind about the life we live. K-man never allows this family to have a dull moment, and today I am going to talk about this one particular conversation we […]

There is a reason I hated being pregnant, I was extremely hormonal. Hormones were so rageful […]

Although it’s not possible, or healthy, not have any worries how many of these apprehensions are justified?

Top 6 Ways to Prepare for Motherhood

I think I remember my pregnancy with my first child more vividly than the others because…well…it was my first. It was a very joyful time for me. I remember people telling me I looked radiant with that pregnancy “glow”. I was truly looking forward to motherhood.
