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,

Hello Modish Mommies! Today I want to talk about anxiety. Specifically, I would like to briefly explore what it is, how it impacts each of us, and ways to manage it on a day to day basis. The American Psychological Association defines anxiety as “an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure. People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness

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

As a busy mom, it can be difficult to get the quality of sleep that is necessary for you to maintain your overall physical, emotional, and mental health- especially for moms who have infants or toddlers. You see, human beings are not born knowing how to put themselves to sleep. In fact, this was one of the biggest shocks to me as a new mom. Who knew that setting up the perfect nursery with a comfortable crib, would not be enough to ensure that my baby would fall asleep when

Hello Modish Mommies! It’s Kaya and I’m so glad to be back here following a brief hiatus. During that time period, I have been in transition and moved almost 7,000 miles back to the United States, after spending three years in Japan. I have started a new job, left friends that have been dear to me while in Japan, found a place to live, and purchased important items such as a vehicle and a new home. On top of my own personal transition, I have also transitioned my almost two-year-old

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
