Hey loves, I wanted to share six must-haves for the new mom with you guys. When I had my baby, I was starting from ground zero on the knowledge of …6 Must-Haves for the New Mom
Hey, WordPress clan. I thought we might try having a social tonight. If you are among the members of my blog’s community, I’d like to get to know you better. I’m Shandean. I’m a toddler mom, the wife of perpetually tired resident, writer and entrepreneur trying to figure it all out. Follow me on Instagram [...]
By ‘I’ I mean we, as in my husband and I. I want some of the good coffee you guys have down here. That's what a friend of mine who lives up the street says when he jokes about wanting some coffee when he comes by. He will get some sometimes, but other times refuse [...]
By now, I've been awake for a few hours. Yesterday was Mother's Day and if we're being honest, I spent it in bed. All of it. Right there is where my husband brought me coffee, showed me my gift and later brought me dinner. I roamed Netflix, social media every now and again and barely [...]
*Read this in black and white with some sad music from the past* There was a girl, who once could not bake. She had made a few attempts at cakes, but they always end up lopsided and/or burnt. *Dramatically lifts veil* Then entered the coronavirus. And you know that trying to shop for longer periods [...]
Blogging is not a sprint. It’s a marathon. I read that somewhere this week, and it might have been the kick I needed to jump start my engine. See, since this quarantine thing started, I’ve opened a blank page to write a blog post a couple of dozen times, but always end up closing the [...]
I published blog post this morning about flying solo with my daughter, and my husband wanted to share his side.
The other day, the need arose for Sio and I to travel alone. Up until that time, we traveled as a family. My husband was a tad concerned, asking numerous times if I was sure I'd be okay mostly because our child is frisskkyy!
This morning as I had my coffee, I came across a video on Facebook where a twelve day old new born stopped breathing. The police stopped the speeding car and successfully revived the child and kept her breathing until paramedics arrived. I cried through the video. the mom looked like a new mom and I [...]
Hey, guys! I can't believe that 2019 is more than half way through, even if only by two weeks. I've been meaning to write this blog for a week now, and not surprisingly, it's at 2am while I'm strung out and tired that I'm getting the chance. If nothing else, I've prided myself on being [...]
2 Years Old On October 13, 2018, my angel turned two years old. Can you believe it? How we got here so fast, I will never know. It's a wonder I didn't bawl like I did when she turned one. My beautiful, sweet, happy, smart child. I am so proud of her. I walk around [...]
These last few weeks, watching Siobhán grow like a weed and immersing myself completely in the experience of being her mom, I've been hit with an unexpected conundrum, baby fever. I feel it wash through me everytime I look at my child, or see one younger than her. I look at her baby pictured wrought with [...]
I cannot believe how fast this time is going! Then again, I can believe it. When I watch my once mild tempered child catch an attitude and lash out in 0.0001 seconds flat, I can believe it. She is not here to play bruh. Talking She is talking. Well, as clearly as a child of [...]
If motherhood has taught me nothing else, it is the true meaning of the phrase "beautiful mess" and the preciousness in appreciating every day and not letting life pass you by. This whirlwind of a journey has been indescribable from the start, but more importantly, I now understand the true preciousness of time and living in the [...]
I had my daughter 6 months go today. WOW! Just... wow! Already I have found myself several times over looking at pics from the day (night) she was born. She changed, grown so much. Will it always be this fast? My heart might not be able to take this. I love this kid so much! It's [...]
I'm the girl who loves babies with relentless passion. For as long as I can remember being a female, I wanted my own. I'm one of those women who believes that a child and a family that I created was at the top of the list if I were to consider myself successful.(Among other things [...]
