With Christmas fast approaching, our kids are filled with images and commercials advertising the “newest, coolest” thing to hit the market. Despite the fact that their toy chest is already filled with excellent toys, they still play with the cardboard box they came in. Or as in the case of my daughter Jasmine, who is [...]

Musings from a SAHM on a Journey

Musings from a SAHM on a Journey

I used to be fun. I use to have more good days, filled with belly-laughter than bad days. Most of the time nowadays, I’m unhappy. I feel like I’m suffocating in my life right now, the kind of suffocation where you rip your shirt off because you simply cannot breathe while wearing it. I feel [...]

My Experience with Postpartum Depression

I had my second daughter, Jasmine, on December 10th, 2010 at 1:47 am. She was my VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) that I had fought tooth and nail for. She was to be my redemption at breastfeeding as well. And while she was both of those things, she also ended up ushering in the darkest [...]

Banish the Germs and get Onboard the Elderberry Train

A couple years ago I began my hunt for a natural way to combat all the germs my daughter Mae would bring home from preschool. Mae and her sister were starting to show signs of illness induced asthma issues and were having a hard time getting and staying well during flu and cold season. Then [...]

Wraps, Slings and Carriers, Oh my!

Wraps, Slings and Carriers, Oh my!

The world of baby carrying, or babywearing, is nothing new to man and womankind; for as long as babies have been born, parents and caregivers have been carrying them. Babywearing is of the utmost benefits for so many reasons, including but not limited to: the reduction of SIDS (Sears) helps encourage a healthy supply of [...]
