…Worth

....Your worth/value as a woman did not decrease because you became a single mom. If anything, it has increased... Maaaaaan... This has been ringing in my mind as of late ever since Kim (@singleblackmotherhood) posted it. I always thought that I was "damaged goods" because I am a single mother [ESPECIALLY being a BLACK single… Continue reading …Worth

…being strong

Hey folks! I just came off of the BEST WEEKEND EVER. Ky had her first recital and I’ve been in awe of her since. Her little group all went on stage, did their thang, and left...no tears! I'm pretty sure that is UNHEARD of! I just could not stop watching her little videos. And as… Continue reading …being strong

….Reaching a Breaking Point

I have reached my breaking point. I’m convinced these “Terrrrrrrrrrrifible Twos” are turning me grey (no, like seriously...I found a grey strand and named it Larry). I was ok with Ky being terrible at home. I’m not the best person when we’re home anyway. I just want to lay down, watch my shows, drink wine,… Continue reading ….Reaching a Breaking Point

…giving yourself a break

Hey folks! So I've had one helluva crazy past couple of weeks. Ky came down with the flu AND pneumonia. When I tell you I was freaking the fuck out... I feel like I haven't slept in 2 weeks, and that might be pretty accurate. It was so scary seeing her so helpless, so sick and… Continue reading …giving yourself a break

…finding a hobby

Hey folks! Have you ever found yourself dreading this question: "So what do you like to do for fun?" No? Just me? *shrugs* I've had THE most difficult time attempting to answer that question. My answer is always different! Like I legit don't know anymore. I tried to go in my memories and see what… Continue reading …finding a hobby

…letting insecurities go (almost)

Hey folks! Long time. No post! I've been absolutely horrible with this blogging thing. Like I promise I had all the free time in the world - or so I thought - to write...But, Life. I digress. Today I write about concurring my body issues. Or at least a step in that direction. At first,… Continue reading …letting insecurities go (almost)

…taking advice like a boss

Hey folks! I just wanted to take the time to write a loving letter... Let's begin shall we! ____________________________________________________________________________________________ To whom it may concern, I just wanted to write to you about all the advice you so lovingly give... From how to wash my child to what I should buy my child. Yes, I so generously thank you for taking such… Continue reading …taking advice like a boss

…wanting to be free

Lately I've missed my freedom. Not that I had much to be free about.. But just the mere fact that I could have gone wherever I wanted, whenever I wanted...without the responsibilities of a child. Is that wrong? It's not that I miss the party scene - although leaving the house at midnight and not… Continue reading …wanting to be free

…traveling adventures 

Hey folks! So I have done it! The impossible! And now I am in my family's history books. This past Spring Break I decided Ky and I were NOT going to spend it in NC. We needed a break. So I packed our things and Belly (that's what I'm calling her these days) in the car… Continue reading …traveling adventures

…making do

Ashley, why won't you ever get Ky a dog? It was a windy Sunday morning and Ky and I had to wake up to head to church. I accidentally signed up to do children's church and now I'm being held hostage...but I digress... And in true "us" form, we were running late. So I put… Continue reading …making do
