• I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

Summer School is in Session

June 15, 2016

We are almost 3 weeks in to summer break and I’m still trying to get my life together.  It’s hard to believe Peyton is headed to 1st grade!  She did an amazing job in kindergarten so I’m going to brag on her for a bit.  Her teacher shared with me that Peyton was one of the strongest readers in the class.  She was also in the top math group for kindergarten.  She did this all while playing basketball and doing gymnastics throughout the year.  I’m so proud of my baby.  I don’t want her to lose momentum so I’m making her do a little bit of summer school during the week.  I thought I would share our easy summer school plan with you guys. summer school 1

In Peyton’s kindergarten class they did quite a bit of geography.  Peyton loves maps and drawing them as well.  Being a former logistics professional, I share her passion for maps and geography.  I picked up this felt wall map so she can learn her states and capitals this summer.  The workbook is from Target’s Dollar Spot and features worksheets teaching her about each state in the US.

Peyton is an artist, so we will be doing some fun projects once a week.  They will consist of painting, writing books and making fashion magazines. summer school 3

We’ll be doing lots of reading.  Again, Peyton is a strong reader but I want to make sure she continues on that track.  Mister has instructed her to read at least one book a day to Harper.  That’s win win!  I plan to start introducing chapter books over the summer.  If you have any recommendations please leave them in the comments.

Outside of art and reading, Peyton will be working on workbooks.  Every day, she is required to do 2 pages in the workbook.  You can pick up some good workbooks at Dollar Tree and Target’s Dollar Spot.  Not sure about your Target, but my mine recently stocked the dollar spot with a lot of back to school items.  Go now!

That’s our summer school plan.  I know it sounds like a lot but I think an hour a day will get the job done.  Do you have a summer school plan?  Please share in the comments.

    Keep her learning year round! I know you allow her to still have her playtime and fun activities but the learning needs to be constant in my opinion. Love your ideas!!
