Valentine’s Day

I am so fortunate to have the family and friends that I have, they’re more than what I could have ever asked for. They know my needs more than me at times. SO many people have been here to help me up after I’ve fallen. Even to intervene before a fall has taken place, the […]

The Conscious Parent

I am reading The Conscious Parent by Shefali Tsabary at the recommendation of a friend of mine who recently had her son. Congratulations Kimari!

Baby Wearing

(Disclaimer: this isn’t an ad and I’ve only tried the following two baby wearing items). I use the ergo baby original on a day to day basis when it’s a shorter trip/ not a lengthy walk involved or somewhere space restrictive/not handicap friendly (stroller is a huge wheeled apparatus). It’s made of organic cotton so […]
