YAY! The Holidays are over

Yo today is the last day of holiday and you guys won’t believe (or maybe you can) how long, exhausting and tiring this month long holiday was. It was awesome because I got to spend much needed time with them before I go back to the real world after a 4 month maternity leave break. I am ready to get back into it. The run-down of the Holiday: – Somehow my kids are just a

Baby Development: Yameen is 3 months old

Baby Development: Yameen is 3 months old

I’m a bit late in doing this because Yameen’s is almost 4 month old again but I figured it would be awesome to check on his development later on, when he is older and I have forgotten everything that’s happened in his first year of his life. It’s been an awesome three months so far, and it also feels like 2017 went far too quickly, when I looked again he was born and now three

Story time: I had part of my toenail removed surgically

It’s a mission to get all the documentation especially if you haven’t worked at a company for longer four years.

Reflections 2017 

And so 2017 has come to an end and as I look back at the year that went by so quickly I would never have thought I’d be a mom of a beautiful little boy. How amazing is that though, the beginning of the year I was a mom of two just going about life and minding my own business and adamant that two kids is enough financially and for my sanity and at the

My Breastfeeding Story

My Breastfeeding Story

I’ve never had a lot of experience in breastfeeding my kids, I feel like I was robbed of the decision to give the girls breastmilk, I will say though that I understand why the doctors decided to dry up my milk. I do feel though that formula feeding really isn’t a big deal. The girls were hardly ever sick and they picked up quite a bit of weight. After all a fed baby is a

Story Time – Our Wedding day

Story Time - Our Wedding day

I remember being nervous that whole week before the wedding; I couldn’t believe I was getting married to the most perfect guy for me. It had taken us a year and half to get to that point. We decided to take that long because we wanted to go into a marriage with little to no debt and so we saved and bought all our home goodies in cash and our wedding was paid for in
