    My non-existing breastfeeding Journey

    Hello everyone! I hope your weekend has been good. Today I am gonna share my breastfeeding stories and how much of an epic fail both times were for me. Each child was different, and each reason was different so lets get into it. Jaelon: My experience with Jaelon was so difficult. I wanted to breastfeed so bad, and that was my plan. I had talked to my doctors about it, we had a plan and I even did my own research. When Jaelon was born, I immediately began the journey, except…… Jaelon refused to latch on. They brought me a lactation nurse so she could assist me in getting him…

    My Morning Routine

    Hey! I hope all is well with everyone. I know i’m beat after the week I’ve had, but as a mother of two I gotta do what I gotta do. My friends always ask me how I get through it and I tell them I have no clue. I really just go with the motions. Then again that’s not completely true. I do have a routine from Monday through Friday to get the morning started. Besides the getting out of bed part, it really isn’t that hectic.

    Failing

    So today’s blog is about me sharing how I deal with being human and a mother. I know it’s a weird thing right ? Being human? Being a mom? Well let’s get into it…….every single day I play this movie in my head over the decisions I have made and how they effect my children. I think about the things I did wrong, the ways I handled certain situations, did I love on them enough? Did I tell them I love them enough?  Did I forget something that they needed or wanted to do? All these thoughts especially came to mind this past weekend when I realized that I forgot…
