Are you a mother that feels all alone? A rubber face with a stripper's name. Memoir by Katja Berg is a book for you. This book is a memoir of a woman who is a parent. A single parent of two kids who struggled to stay afloat.

She would always let her pride an

Working class

Who put this shame In between my shoulder blades Sliding down my spine Embedded in my DNA Was it my mother Dental assistant Four- day weeks What did she sacrifice For her children Or was it my father Under-educated Strong Hands picked tobacco Six days driving trucks He never owned. I am the first To uproot from red dirt To explore foreign lands To swim in cold water Still I cannot carry This guilt that crumbles Heavy in my hands Crushes me tender Year after year.

Garnier fructis 1 minute mask review

~This is a non-paid review~ Today we are going to be talking about what I like about the product, how it feels and the smell. So let's get right into it this conditioner.  The Smell Number one I love the smell of it. The smell is not too strong or sweet it has a soft undertone. I was able to get two free samples of Garnier Fructis 1 minute mask courtesy of Pinchme.com. The samples I got was smoothing treat + avocado extract and nourishing treat +coconut extract. So when I washed my hair I used my regular shampoo that I always use then I put the conditioner on after my three lathers and repeat.now on the back of the sample, it gives you directions of how you could use this conditioner. You can use it as a mask by applying it to damp hair after you wash it and let it sit in your hair for one minute then rinse it out. That's is what I did, or use it as a leave in conditioner or as a traditional conditioner. I feel either option you take adding this product to your

School Supply shopping review.

School Supplies Today we are going to be talking all about school supply list shopping. as a parent, how many of you like to go school supply shopping. Me myself it's not my favorite thing to do at the beginning of the school year process. But it's something we have to do so in an earlier post I said I like to do my shopping early because I like to be prepared ahead of time and also things go fast when it gets a couple of weeks away from school starting. So this post is going to be a sort of review on the process of going school supply shopping and the stress of it and if you would like to see a video review/ haul on the supply we got for my son you will able to see that video this Monday. The List It is a week since school has been out and you have been looking at the school supply list every now and then so you don't forget school will be coming soon I better start shopping. The list looks like it is a grocery list so long and cryptic. you say today

A Mother's top 5 reality check list

A Mother's top 5 reality check.  A mother is always dreaming. What is a mother's top 5 reality check list. well let me just say,  when you are a mother you are always wanting to make sure you can take care of all of your motherly duties as for getting laundry done, cooking, cleaning and all the other beautiful things a mom keeps up with, but some time you get that reality check when you want to start doing things on your own will if you can say. As a mother myself I have ran into all of these things quite frequently being a new mother of two and all Im still trying to figure out the in's and outs of things and trying to stay a float with not getting lost in being a mother but still being myself  but then I get that reality check that I cant be just myself any more as much as I want to. We are mothers as well so lets get in to this list. Starting at Number 5 When dishes are in the sink. Now mom's OK, so we all know who is in charge of doing the dishes..

SummerTime Flies.....

August is here and school is near. With summer almost coming to an end it's bittersweet I love spending time with my oldest. I'm excited about what is to come of his new school year. I know everyone is starting to do their school shopping and all the kids are starting to get those first days of school jitters. Right now my son is going to the second grade so he's knowing we still have a whole month of summer left and acting all nonchalant about being nervous for school, but he's starting to get a little clingy. that's how I know it's almost time to go back to school. He doesn't hate school, he just hates the process of going to bed on time and not being able to stay up late and watch all his shows. like a normal kid. Back to school shopping which I am a mother of I better do it early than late, so I already did a little school shopping at the beginning of the summer I got half of his school supplies which is a lot of stuff for a second grader, but I know

PROS AND CONS TO BEING A STAY AT HOME WORKING MOM.

Being a stay at home mom is the most wonderful thing ever. Being able to stay home with your kids and see every milestone and watch them grow is an amazing thing but being a working stay at home there sometimes can be some cons. But right now I want to talk about the pros because they're more important than the cons. The first thing a mother loves about being a stay at home mom is that you get to wake up with your kids every morning and see their beautiful face and be able to eat breakfast and either ease into your day or.get ready to head out for school together. The second thing is to be able to help them with there homework and cook lunches, and dinner for them. If they do any extra circular activities your able to attend and witness every moment with them. The third thing is you don't have to leave to go to a workplace where they don't appreciate or overwork you and keep you pass your clock out time. You get to relax whenever you want in the comfort in your own hom
