6 year old birthday photoshoot

I’ve now been a mom for six years. My little girl is SIX! Lil’ J’s 6th birthday snuck up on us– well, as much as it could with her reminding us every other minute. She was involved in the planning of her birthday party, from the theme to the venue, the guest list and goodie… read the rest.


Making learning fun and instilling a love of learning in our children

Sometimes I wonder if I’m overthinking this whole parenting thing. Either that or my parents didn’t give a crap. No… I don’t mean that. Not really. But seriously, am I overthinking this? Since I took a left turn down onto homeschool lane I’m constantly second-guessing myself, or wondering how I can do a better job…. read the rest.

I overhear my kids bickering in the playroom. They were getting along nice for a while but an argument erupted. I’m not sure who started it or what it’s about but I can hear them yelling back and forth. “WHAT DO YOU WANT?” My daughter screams. Her brother cries while yelling back but she gets… read the rest.


Where do we go from here: Motherhood, parenting natural hair

Since my last post I’ve been out of words and full of tears. Happy tears because of the overwhelming amount of people who understand or want to understand. Sad tears because things haven’t gotten better. Not yet. But these sort of things take time. So where do we go from here? Collaborations are in the… read the rest.


Police wife married to a white cop with a biracial black son

“Wow, he’s almost as dark as me!” I pointed to our son as my husband and I sat with the kids at the pool. Our little 3-year-old is like so many other little boys. He’s happy, and fearless and finally getting the hang of pooping in the potty. Right now you can’t help but look… read the rest.


Butler Park Fountains Austin

“What’s your favorite season?” Lil’ J asked me as we drove home. “I like summer,” I said. “We can go swimming, and on trips, and play outside and cool off in the water. It’s fun!” “I like summer too,” she agreed. “But my favorite is fall!” “Why?” I asked. “Because it’s still warm but not… read the rest.


The BFG Book vs movie review. Should you take your kids to see it? Is The BFG scary? Here's a 5-year-old review.

When I’d first seen the previews for The BFG I thought I’d pass for a while assuming it would be too scary for my little ones, but after reading the book I realized it was more of a story about friendship, bravery and silly giants than actual frightening monsters. Meeting the director and stars of the… read the rest.


Biracial girl and creole grandpa

“I like this one!” My 5-year-old daughter told me as we shopped for picture frames for my dad’s Father’s Day gift. She was in charge of helping choose everything this year, and assembling the presents. A big responsibility my little one was excited to tackle. He always requests photo gifts for the holidays but I’m… read the rest.


Walt Disney Studios Lot

Chapter 6 I can feel the memories from my Disney movie trip fading quickly. I don’t want to forget how it felt when I walked around the Walt Disney Studios Lot, walking where Walt Disney himself walked and the amazing experience it was those few days meeting new friends and goodness, let’s not forget Steven Spielberg…. read the rest.


Blue Apron review

Parenting aint’ easy. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been bored with nothing to do. I literally don’t think that’s ever happened in the last 6 years. In fact, I don’t have time for a lot of the things I used to have time for. Here are just 10: If you’ve read my blog… read the rest.
