Does this after-school scene sound familiar? Everyone comes in the door and you immediately hear, “mom, can I have a snack”. You agree. The snack suggestions start. Then, after saying no to three suggestions, you finally agree to the last one- even though it wasn’t ideal. Just like clockwork, more snack requests come minutes after the first. Before you know it, your kids have inhaled all of the chips, cookies, and popsicles that were supposed to be enjoyed on occasion.…

The Good Doctor ABC tv show autism

All summer, the trailer to The Good Doctor on ABC (a show about a young surgeon with Autism and Savant Syndrome) was shown, on the television, on billboards… and even plastered on the huge busses in New York City!

Doctor's office dentist fear

This is a sponsored post that contains affiliate links. We all love our kids and do everything to keep them healthy and happy. However, kids don’t think of this as a favor when you’re hauling them along to a doctor’s office. As children, it’s very likely you were also afraid of having to go to the doctor or dentist. Hospitals usually mean nothing good’s going on, and as a child, you don’t have the ability to differentiate from that. Following…

Why Your Children Need To See Mommy & Daddy Kiss!

Did this title grab your attention? Great! Well now that I have your attention, allow me to explain why your children will benefit from your affection towards your spouse. No – I am not implying that you need to sit your kids down and first explain the birds and bees. And then next confess that mommy is the bird in the story that gets stung by daddy bee. (Honestly, I just made that up. I don’t even know the story of the birds…

Action Plan for Putting an end to Your Child’s “I’m bored”

I'm Bored

I’m Bored! Moms: how many times have you heard this phrase uttered from your children’s mouth? And when you hear it, how many times does it make you cringe? Did you start to unravel and feel like you were going to lose it? Yep, that was me. Hearing the phrase: “I’m Bored” from my 5-year-old son and 6-year-old (soon to be 7-year-old) daughter is right up there with incessant whining for no reason. It’s like a rite of passage as…

The Key Routines Every Busy Mom Needs to Make Getting Fit Feasible

We recognize and appreciate the value of a routine to manage our children. But, do we leverage the power of routines for our own good? Specifically our desire to be a fit mom rather than a rundown mom. For most of us, the answer is no. Adopting a few key routines can help us get and stay fit without stuffing more into our already full schedule. Actually, we save the time spent making in-the-moment decisions about what to eat and…

3 Easy Ways to Make Business Connections as an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur Business Conncections

A conversation I had the other day with an entrepreneur reminded me of the importance to surround yourself with like-minded people. Actually, scratch that, surround yourself with the kind of people that inspire you to be and do better. The fact that you’re the average of the 5 people you hang around the most should say something about the company we keep and connections we won’t make. It literally was a breath of fresh air to engage with enthusiasm and…

Don’t Hesitate – Embark on Your Journey of Success

journey of success

On August 29, married couple Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver debut their docu-series on OWN about love and relationships titled, Black Love. If you haven’t had a chance to see it, I highly recommend you do. Regardless of your relationship status, this show is inspiring as it shows and tells the stories of “picture-perfect” African-American couples that actually aren’t that perfect. (shocking right?) This isn’t about rejoicing over other people’s test and trials, but attempting to answer the question…

“Whose body is this?” is how so many of us feel after being inducted into the mommy club. Of course, we love our children. And, yes we are more than the shells that carry us around.

It is a tool,…

Why Your Purpose is About How You Serve Others

purpose serve others

I’m currently reading a book where I read that generally, the kind of work that God has called you to do is a) something you need to (love to) do, and b) something the world needs to have done. I love this definition of your purpose because it goes beyond the common definition of purpose which simply says “It’s something you love to do.” Adding that the world needs to have it done relates the fact that our purpose was…
