When they speak…Listen

Just one morning, while heading off to work, I saw a little boy of about 5 or so with his mother. She proceeded to stop a taxi and then asked the driver if she could get a brief stop to a certain community to leave her child for the day. On hearing the place’s name, […]

Jamaican Mommies Picnic Rescheduled

Following the big hurrah about the picnic that was to be. I have to unfortunately inform that the picnic has been rescheduled due to many last minute cancellations.

With that in mind, we did promise […]

While it is a constant desire to see one’s child/children succeed, many lack the know-how to actually get the desired results. […]

What no one told you about being a new mom

This one is for my mommy to be readers.. (Smile Nikki). As a mother of a babbling and very active 6 and a half month older (you can never imagine how much times I have to say DON’T and NO, to which she normally smiles and continues doing whatever) I think I have a fair […]
