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.

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

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

When you become a mother you realize that you have no limits when it comes to raising your child. You hope that your child lives life to the fullest without any obstacles no matter what your families circumstances are. But no matter where your faith lies the higher power above has a plan for each and everyone one of us and somethings we cannot control in life. All of our children are special but some are unique than others just like Ralph. Ralph was diagnosed with Autism when he was 2

The prices of child care in America are unrealistic these days especially if you are looking for quality care. Some parents don’t have the luxury of having grandma watch the baby while they go to work. I’ve witnessed people have to put their child in a daycare and struggle to make payments or worry about the environment that their child is in. But that is where Kids Professional Providers comes to the rescue!! They provide quality childcare 24/7 at an affordable rate. The owner Chakera Murchison is a mom of
