To help make getting ready more enjoyable (and educational!), here is a list of our favorite must read back...
Barbie, Made For Mothers And Daughters "We girls can do anything, Right Barbie?" That was the slogan I would proudly sing aloud as a little girl playing with my Barbie dolls back in the mid-80’s. If you’re a young Gen X / elder Millennial Mom (a Xennial, if you will), you were probably singing along too.Barbie was not without controversy, but for many of us she symbolized what we hoped to be; beautiful, independent, successful, and happy. Luckily, for little Black girls at that time, Barbie could also be Black! Thanks to Mattel’s Chief Designer of Fashions and Doll Concepts, Louvenia (Kitty) Black Perkins, the first Black Barbie was created in 1979. Barbie was living her best life and she...
First Grade, The Real Tearjerker? First Grade. Maybe I’m the only one here but I feel more emotional over my daughter starting the first grade than I was about Kindergarten. It’s possible that I could simply be grieving the end of summer: the movie nights, the slow Friday mornings, the days spent in the sun with my littles creating little tan lines and memories.

Kindergarten was such a big deal, first day of “big school,” first time riding the school bus, first time shopping for school supplies and lunch boxes. The first time she tried on her little...
Cooking for a Picky Eater Having a toddler who is a picky eater can sometimes make it hard to prepare healthy food. Especially when your toddler only wants nuggets and fries. Well let me tell you it has been a long journey but I have gotten very creative. When it comes to breakfast, it’s pretty easy. My daughter likes pancakes, oatmeal, yogurt, and bananas. I sometimes can even squeeze in a smoothie. So during lunch time, it can get kinda tricky. She’s a big fan of nuggets and fries. I mean she likes other things, but some days she’s just not feeling it. You know that feeling when you think you finally found a new recipe that your child likes, and...
I’m four months pregnant with my third baby and my one-year-old daughter WILL.NOT.SLEEP. I’ve tried it all: diffusing essential oils and lavender baths, dark room, sound machine, magic merlin suit, sleep sack. It seems like no matter what I do, she still wakes up every 30-90 minutes ready to play, all night long. Multiple days of sleepless nights can quite literally drive you insane. Combine the lack of sleep with the pregnancy exhaustion and I feel like a walking zombie. I sleep-trained my son just fine and he’s a great sleeper. But my daughter is a force to be reckoned with and has decided she doesn’t need beauty sleep because she’s already beautiful. I decided to enlist the help of...
