• No judgment zone! While scouring IG looking for hair inspo at time I’ve noticed “strangers” in the comments telling people how their kids hair should look.  I’m guilty of having my opinions in the past but I kept them to myself.  I remember when I said I would never put beads in my kids hair, add color, blow it out or add hair.  Look at us now.  I think all those “rules” held us back from embracing our hair. While I won’t do anything to damage their hair I do encourage them to try different styles.  Peyton knows her hair is magical and she can do so many things. She gets to the point where she asks me if she could wear it natural for a while vs the other way around. I offered to give her a long ponytail for her cheer competition and she said no she was fine.  Ok den! I know My mood is better when my hair is laid. Love our girls can express themselves with their hair. What’s a hair rule that you have broken for you or your children?

  • Harper got her bedroom “office” update. I styled the book shelves (she has a ton in her closet) and added a dry erase board.  She loves to practice her letter on it. Just after one day, her markers were confiscated 😒. Not sure what my next project will be.  I’m avoiding my closet but I seriously need to tackle that asap. You can find more pics of her room on the blog.  Link in profile. #heytrinashome #kidsdecor
  • My first time doing braid with hair ever! I did box braids on Peyton’s hair using @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair.  I’m so happy with how they came out I’m tempted to doing some on myself 😳. I used the rubber and method. Ore pics on the blog. Would you try these?  If you try this please share with me! #boxbraids #girlbraidstyles #latchednhooked #protectivestyles #diybraids https://heytrina.com/easy-box-braids-you-can-do-yourself-video/
  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

  • Spring is here but no spring break 😓. Just over here washing my hands, trying to stay positive and plotting where I’m going when this is all over. Homeschool was a fail this week but I did finish my new Supermomculture.com site, set up my new workspace and deep cleaned my kitchen.  Currently happy hour at the crib. Can’t wait to rock this @suakokobetty outfit again.
  • My 2nd quarantine project is complete! So y’all remember that cute office I had.... well Mr stole it a few years ago even though it has pink accents 😒. My pictures are still on the wall an everything.  Since then, my main office has been the kitchen counter with my laptop. How am I supposed to run a multi-thousand dollar business from the counter? Being a blogger is one thing but having a retail business is another beast. I have a computer in my guest room where I package orders but it was on a small writers desk with no room for papers or anything.  It was getting too hectic. So I switched the room around to make more space to fulfill orders and work. I shopped my basement to put it together. I super excited to have a new space where I can leave my papers and planners. My desk is the Linnmon desk from Ikea. I already had 2 of these tables that are on the other side of the printer for @supermomculture orders. PS: while I’m being productive my kids aren’t 🤷🏾‍♀️ #heytrinashome

1st Day of Kindergarten

August 11, 2015

Yesterday marked an epic moment in Peyton’s (and mine) life.  She started her first day of kindergarten at an elementary school.  She was a complete pro!  Going to a big school and meeting new friends did not phase her the least bit.  We had to stop her from running on the bus so we can take a few pictures.  Me on the other hand, I was a bit of a mess.  Keep reading…1st day 1

1st day 2

Shirt and top c/o Carters |  Headband, Gap Kids |  Shoes c/o Skechers

1st day 3Mister and I put Peyton on the bus.  Mister parked my car at near the bus stop so I could jump in and follow the bus.  Yes, I tailed the bus on the first day of school.  I wanted to know all the stop before it dropped my daughter off at school just in case I had to go looking for it.  After following the bus to school, I parked to deliver Peyton’s school supplies.  Seriously, there is no way should could have carried everything on the supply list in her book bag.  Plus, it gave me an excuse to see her again.

I get to her classroom and hand her teacher the supplies.  Peyton is sitting at her table coloring I assume because classes have not officially started.  I catch her attention and what does she do….waves.  I’m like, she doesn’t miss me yet?  So I asked her for another kiss and hug.  She put down her crayon and came and gave me a hug.  It really hit me that my baby is growing up and becoming more independent.  I couldn’t be more proud of her.  She a quick adaptor and goes with the flow.  If you follow me on Snapchat (babyshopa) you would have seen it all go down.

How was your child’s first day?  Did you follow the bus or do anything that others may think is extreme?

    I just looked at the photo we took during a Halloween party at the Yote and she was matching our outfits. Wow!! I can’t believe she is in school. Those curls are POPPIN!

    You were not extreme, that’s your baby. My son doesn’t start school until September.

    This reminds me of the time I dropped my niece to her job SUPER early in the morning (it was still completely dark out) and I don’t know what hit me but I started crying hysterically…lol. Mind you my niece was like 19 at the time. She’s just so little and dropping her off at work so early in the morning and her having to deal with possible rude customers just got me in my feelings. When I have my own, I’m going to be a mess…lol.

    Peyton looked SO cute and so happy to read she was such a pro on her first day 🙂

    I forgot to mention. Petyon was adorable on her first day of school. I can’t wait to follow my child’s school bus next month!

    That is really smart of you to follow the bus to all the stops. I will be dropping Jubilee off myself and some days we might walk if its cool enough.

    Wow, time really is flying.Yes, sometimes the independence is shocking, but it’s really good for her and it’s great since you will need the extra help now with the baby! 🙂
