Updates: I began working a month ago at an amazing nonprofit organization in Austin. Im moving into my own apartment on Sunday. I’ve found a new daycare in a span of a day, yikes. Life is looking up, the part that is of particular interest to me is the phase I’m going through in relation […]Read More Decluttering & Hoarding
Let’s dissect what it means to be at ease. What is comfort? 1. a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint: room for four people to travel in comfort. • (comforts) things that contribute to physical ease and well-being: the low upholstered chair was one of the room’s few comforts. • prosperity […]Read More Comfort PT.1
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 […]Read More Valentine’s Day
I had a brief exchange the other day with a facebook friend about temper tantrums. She’s a mom of a 3-week old and a step-mom/coparent to a 5-year old; she believes that temper tantrums are avoidable. I do not.

I wrote about washing bottles, because these were ‘mom’ things I hadn’t thought about prior. I had so many ideas but they felt so impersonal and in my […]Read More WTF? What even is a ‘Low Key’ Nurturer?
I am reading The Conscious Parent by Shefali Tsabary at the recommendation of a friend of mine who recently had her son. Congratulations Kimari! She is an avid book reader and a great mind that I admire, so I took the suggestion to heart and began reading it (better late than never). I’m going to […]Read More The Conscious Parent
This weekend, I learned the importance of understanding the intentions that motivates someone’s (in)action. I have an amazing father that is not my blood, nonetheless he is an absolutely amazing man and father. He’s caring, honest and always speaks highly of me and my son. He has raised me for the past 20 years and […]Read More Father’s Day
