Come Again?! (Part One of “Expecting A Baby”)

On March 18, 2013 my husband and I were beyond excited to attend our first ultrasound appointment. The thought that we were having another child was a little overwhelming but amazing at the same time. Now closer to 2 years old, we wanted S Dot to have a partner in crime. This crawling on the floor and being his main form of entertainment was becoming a bit much. Plus, I often tell people that I am not sure how I could have survived childhood without my little brother. After everything we had been through and witnessed while growing-up, it is great to have someone who you can talk trash to...

Perception vs. Reality

Most people would consider me to be a fairly self-sufficient woman. I take pride in going in alone and handling my business. And, therein lies the problem. I’ve allowed my “perception of strength” to fool me into believing that asking for help is a weakness. I heard a quote once that knocked me on my behind, “If you are too proud to admit you are hurting…don’t be surprised if no one seems to care”. The week following my twins birth was the hardest time of my life. See, I’m not a fan of hospitals, which makes me a horrible patient. I had an...

How did you do that? Mommy Magician:          It’s called Diastasis Recti. Children:                                 What does that mean? Mommy Magicians:        It means that when you little creeps were born, you split your mother’s abdominal muscles and her stomach has never looked right since! If God gave women the blessing of childbirth, than the devil is responsible for her body’s...

How Does Your Child See You?

I am a severely flawed human being. Actually, depending on what day you catch me, you might not even consider me a human being. But, Lord knows I’m trying. If you told me 10 years ago that one day I would be married with three children under three, two of which are twins, there’s a good chance I would have kicked you in the balls (whether you had balls or not). My husband and I will tell you, “having three babies is hard”! When I’m not working a full-time job, my home life is filled with washing clothes, making bottles, cooking, changing diapers, wrestling on...

Party of Five

When I found out we were going to be a family of five, I just knew I would be viewed as ghetto when people saw three toddler boys trailing behind me as we traveled throughout our city. Maybe it’s because I was raised in the hood and the stereotype was “if you see a young woman with more than two babies you assume she is trying to beat the system and force tax payers to take care of her children.” I know you may find this ridiculous, but the sense of embarrassment I felt was real. I thought I was pregnant with our second child, not twins! What can I say? Sometimes the foolishness we hear from...
