Off to Day Care / Off Maternity Leave

Day Cares can be a convenient and affordable option for moms returning to their jobs after having a baby.  Research has shown that the transition can be a difficult for some babies as they are extremely sensitive and emotionally intelligent even at a young age.  Introducing them to daycare can compromise the security and comfort they had at home with you. As my maternity leave drew to a close, I realized I had to whip myself into shape (mentally) and…

Sweet Valentines

To celebrate love is a wonderful thing.  To be blessed with people in our lives who celebrate us, support us, inspire us and motivate us is indeed a blessing. Too often, we take these people for granted. Unfortunate but true. It’s been said that Valentine’s Day is overrated and I can see why some say this. Firstly, there is constant pressure to purchase a gift for your partner. Some couples start stressing out about the need to find that perfect…

Meet Shante Jarvis

I’ve always loved kids but I never thought that I would have the patience to be a mom. On October 13th 2013 I found out that I was pregnant. I was stressed, depressed and terrified because deep down I knew mentally I was not ready.  While going through my trimesters there were two (2) questions I repeatedly asked myself: 1. How am I going to take care of this child? 2. Will I have the ability to love this child…

Meet Joanna Midolo

Meet Joanna Midolo Her thoughts on motherhood: Four weeks ago, I quit my full time job and gave birth to a beautiful little being we call Fiona Storm. They tell you your life will change, but until it happens, there's no way to fully understand. The biggest/hardest thing for me to adapt to was the change in pace. Before Fiona I lived my life in constant motion. Keeping my office job one step ahead of the boss, pursuing two new degrees in…

Meet Raisa Roberts

Meet Raisa Roberts   Her thoughts on motherhood: During my last trimester everything that could have gone wrong went wrong, the baby wasn’t growing as he should, I fell down, then my pressure went high so I was induced 4 weeks early. My son was 3 pounds 13.5 ounces. He was so tiny but instantly that motherly instinct kicked in and all I wanted to do was hold him and never let go. Being a mother has taught me to…

Meet Kerry Ann Thomas

Her thoughts on motherhood: Firstly, it's a gift from God and I thank him for blessing me with a son. My son is my heart, he's my everything. There is nothing I would change, one of the best decisions a woman can make is to nurture a child. Just seeing him smile, blowing me kisses and giving me hugs has captured my heart. Parenting it not an easy road but it takes a strong, dedicated, hard working individual and support…
