Kareem’s 16 month update!

Baby Update!! I thought a baby update was over due, although Kareem is now considered a toddler – which is craziness! I mentioned in my last post, it feels as tho the time flew by but at the same time that Kareem has always been apart of our lives.

Moms, Please Stop Self-Deprecating And Own Your Awesomeness

I’m not sure if it’s a societal thing, a human thing, or a female thing, but I’ve noticed that many moms have a habit of lessening themselves in the eyes of others. “Oh, they didn’t really turn out well,” says the mom who spent hours baking and decorating cupcakes for a school carnival. “Oh, I’m no good at this,” says the mother who somehow managed to balance work, homework help, tween crisis management, and marital bonding this week. “It’s not like billions of other women haven’t done the same thing,” says the woman who grew a human in her...
