Teachers play an important role in our children’s lives and deserve a thoughtful gift during the holiday season. Last year I honestly forgot to give Saia’s teacher a gift, so I want to make sure I give her something special that she can actually enjoy this time around. If you’re looking for some creative, easy and affordable gift ideas for a teacher, I got you covered-check out my top five gift list below: Personalized Notebook  Amazon Gift Card Self -Care Kit Teacher Charm Bangle Custom Teacher Shirt Keep in mind,

Last Christmas, I went all out for Saia-especially when it came to toys. Over time I realized that out of all the toys I bought she only played with 3 or 4 consistently and I wasted my money.  Majority of the toys ended up in the basement until recently, when her cousin came over for a playdate. I created a play space for them to have fun and live their best toddler life. Since that day, Saia has been into all the toys and using her imagination to the fullest.

And just like that, it’s the holiday season Modish Mommies! When this time of the year comes around it’s so easy to overlook the true meaning of the holiday, which is to BE THANKFUL! Sometimes, I catch myself going through the motions of life and I have to check myself and remember how truly blessed I am. One day I caught myself complaining about how my daughter talks a lot, but then I had to stop myself because there is a mother out there wishing she could get her child

Saia’s dad and I always tried to implement healthy eating habits in our home but we could never stick to it. Before I had Saia, I just knew my child would eat organic everything and never eat fast food (except for Chick-Fil-A lol) but some days McDonald’s ended up being our only option. Recently, I noticed that she was constantly asking me to eat McDonald’s even on days when I cooked a home cooked meal. I began to feel guilty as a parent because I never wanted my child to

Saia’s dad and I have been in the same household for over three years now. Before we had Saia, we made sure that we found a balance in order to maintain a happy household. Of course, we have our good and bad days as a couple and parents, but we make the balance work to the best of our ability. It’s common for parents to neglect their relationship because they are so focused on raising their children. However, it’s important for couples to become aware of their relationship needs in order

On February 15th to be exact Saia’s dad was ran over by a car while he was on vacation in New Orleans (NO). Since the horrific accident, I had to step up and play the role of both parents. In the beginning, it was rough because the love of my life was in the hospital in New Orleans for at least a month because his injuries were so severe. This required me to take care of Saia during the week and travel to the NO on the weekends. Once we

I really didn’t believe the hype when people told me that your child becomes a new person when they turn two. Welp, they were right because my sweet innocent baby is sweet but can be a bit sour at times! In the African American community when it comes to discipline our elders did not play. But now times surely have changed and a lot of parents I know have switched their approach when it comes to disciplining their child-including myself recently. I was inspired to write this post because one

I’ll admit it, potty training my daughter hasn’t been an easy process. Some days are better than others but I cringe when other moms talk about their child using the pot pot because I’m honestly over the process. So I’ve decided to take a step back and really create a plan that should make this process easier for the both of us. If you are a feeling the potty training woes like me, just know that you are not alone and we can do this together! I just got straight

Every year around this time, I’m sure we all think to ourselves-damn time flew. Whelp-Mommies as you know summer break is vastly approaching. If you were in denial like us, realistically it’s time to get things in order for summer. Instead of allowing the kids to work our nerves, consume too much junk food and run the house wild-we are going to make this a productive summer for everybody in the family! For Mommy Take a Break We know the grind is real as a mompreneur. But take a break

Yesterday Modish Mommies got the opportunity to attend the Projecht Bloggers Bungalow at Nisey’s Boutique. The event had an intimate setting for industry professionals to converse, shop, sip and interview Mukami Kinoti Kimotho the creator of Royelles avatars (because they really are more than dolls). As I entered the venue, Mukami’s spirit was like a breath of fresh air and I was able to connect with her instantly. She was poised and carried herself with confidence and dignity while grasping the crowd’s attention with her superior and heartfelt voice. Leaving me eager to learn more about
