• 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!

  • Why play outside when you can have @townctratcobb as your playground? #ad We recently enjoyed a family fun day of playing and shopping at Town Center at Cobb, then dinner and a drink in a cool light bulb container.

  • 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.

  • I’m ready for #backtoschool! New merch available for @supermomculture today! I call this my Momiana hoodie in neon green! I also have baseball caps, beanies, gray tees and sweats! Carpool will never be the same! Link in profile! #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • 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
  • THANK YOU! You guys are awesome! All the kind words and cheers are appreciated. I was just talking about doing things when you’re scared.  I was low key scared to change my blog that’s why I put it of for years. I did it and I lived.  Don’t let fear stop you. Thank you guys for rocking with me over the years and hello to the new folks!

Mommy & Me in Suakoko Betty

May 19, 2016

Would you believe me if I told you I wasn’t sure if I ever wanted kids?  I was never a “kid” kinda woman.  I was still on the fence about kids even after I hit 30.  Maybe it was because I saw how my mom struggled and thought it wasn’t worth it.  Maybe it was because I heard  were so many horror stories of being a teen mom I was turned off.  Or was I just scared.  Would I be a good mom?  Would I be able to provide for them.  Fast forward ten years, I don’t know what my life would be like without my girls.  I’m so excited that I can include my baby dolls in what I’m passionate about.  I’m also grateful that brands like Suakoko Betty and Creative Soul Photography  help me capture beautiful moments with my girls.

Dresses by Suakoko Betty

Creative Soul has done it again!  I think you can feel the love and bond with my girls just by looking at these pictures.  I wanted to do African print looks for this shoot to celebrate being strong brown girls,plus I love Suakoko Betty!  Designer Charleene of Suakoko Betty killed it with these looks!  She doesn’t usually do girls clothes but after asking for the last 4 years since we met, she finally said yes.  You can shop Suakoko Betty HERE.

Did you know at a young age that for sure wanted kids? Or were you like me, a little scared of motherhood?

    Like you I didn’t consider myself the motherly type so I am surprised at how well I fell into the role. I didn’t want children but once I had one I knew I had to have two. Children are indeed the greatest blessings.

    You and your babies look amazing. I hope to see these blown up in your foyer!

    You ladies look fab! I first learned about Suakoko Betty at this year’s Texture on the Runway show. Loved the pieces she created so I was excited when I saw the title of this post.

    Growing up, I wanted 2 kids… then just one… then none. LOL! As I got older, the world got worse and I knew how hard it’d be to raise a child. I was like #teamnobabies! Never thought I was good with kids. AND I found a man who also didn’t want kids LOL. But surprise, surprise! We have our little man and we ADORE him! I hope to able to include him in my passions as you have done with your girls. 😉

    I always said “I don’t believe in kids or marriage (for myself)” and here I am married with two girls of my own! God has a sense of humor & his plans are perfect! I wouldn’t have my life any other way!

    I wasn’t sure if I wanted children as I didn’t think I would be a good enough mom. I saw all my mom did for us and I didn’t think I had it in me. But I’m a wonderful mother of 3 beautiful children, hoping to have one more.

    You three look gorgeous 💖
