  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday

I Miss My Mom

May 13, 2019

It’s been a month since my mom passed away. It still seems surreal. The person that you talk to every single day of your life and the person you can count on no matter what is gone. To say I miss her is an understatement. A piece of me is gone.

She was more than a mom to me, she was my best friend. I could tell her anything. She would always support me. Even if she wasn’t feeling what I was saying or doing, she would respond with… Ok Trina. As sad as I am that she is gone, I truly know that I am blessed to have such an amazing mother.

She was all that I had growing up. I shared details about not having a relationship with my dad until the last two years of his life. He died two less than years ago. My mom held me down.

I watched how my mom overcame obstacles with style and grace. She didn’t take no for an answer. She took risks. I think I was her biggest risk. I wasn’t born in the best circumstances but she did what she had to do and held her head high.

When I cry, most it is tears of sadness because I miss her. Some of them are tears of joy. Joy because I know she is in heaven. She knew how much she was loved. This Mother’s Day was hard without her but I tried to focus on how much of an amazing mother and grandmother my mom was.

    Praying for your continued strength, Trina! Touching story; thanks for sharing. I remember an earlier blog(maybe a year or so ago) of a birthday celebration where you shared pictures with your mom and family.
    Hold your head up high, and continue to make her proud.

    I am praying for you Trina. I have also lost a wonderful Mother and it’s tough. They say time heals all wounds, not this one. You will miss her for the rest of your life but God will give you comfort. It is a heartache that never goes away but you will learn to cope. Please allow yourself to grieve! You are in my prayers…..Ingrid S, Toledo, OH…..XOXO

    This was a beautiful tribute to your mom. Although she is gone, she left a great legacy on this earth with you and your daughters. My daughter means the world to me and I am sure that you daughters are your life. I hope that I can live up to the great dedication you wrote about your mom with my daughter.
    WOW!!!
