My Blessing: A Poem

My Blessing
As I lay me down to sleep,

I thank the lord, for my boy, so sweet.

I’m blessed with silly faces and laughs, squeals and giggles from tickle attacks.

I’m blessed with tantrums and pouts galore and it makes me love him forevermore.

Butterfly kisses and Eskimo ones too,

My love for him stretches deep like the ocean blue.

I feel so blessed to see his smile every day and I will thank you lord, for always.

Catching up: Pre-K & Sports

Hi all!

I have not posted here in a long time. Things have just been busy. You all know how that goes ☺️.

Let me catch you up:

My son is now in Pre-K. He absolutely loves it! All through out the summer he was scared and nervous and telling us he did NOT want to go to school. He didn’t want to leave me. At one point he told me the school doesn’t need him, that they can go on without him, hahaha. But thankfully, he is doing great, making friends, loves his teacher and really enjoys school.

Aside from school, I’ve signed him up for some winter programs in out township. Starting in December, he will be in karate, soccer and tennis. I’m glad he will be busy during winter days. You know how challenging it can be when the weather is cold and snowy and the kids are getting stir crazy! So on Friday’s and Saturdays, he will have things to do ☺️.

He is really excited to take karate. He tells me he will be good because he is a ‘ninja’! lol my silly boy. He is also excited to take soccer, being that he really enjoyed it last summer. Tennis is the only sport he is weary about. It’s not a sport he has tried yet, but my husband played tennis for many years and he wanted Nathaniel to try it. So we’ll see how that goes. If he ends up not enjoying it much, we just won’t sign him up for it next year. 

But these programs are great because it keeps the children occupied and they are FREE. Yes! FREE! Can’t go wrong ☺️.

Well that’s it for now. I hope everyone is doing well and that the children are well. Please, let me know what you all have been up to!

I’m afraid you have what’s know as “children”

This is exactly how I’ve been feeling for the past week! 😫 I thank the heavens however, for a wonderful husband! He see’s how stressed out I’ve been, so he took our little man out for a scoot on his new scooter. The silence right now in my apartment is Devine…

Bye guys! I need to continue to enjoy this silence before they return…sssshhhhh 😉.

“Mommy, do you know Alana?”

“No, who is that?”

“Alana! Alana!”

“Baby I don’t know who that is”

“She’s Dora’s friend, from Dora in the City.”

“Ooh ok. Sorry (lol), I don’t watch that show.”

“She twisted her ankle playing soccer and they put a cast on her. She has to use stilts now.”


“Yea, because she can’t use her foot to walk.”

“Oh you mean crutches (haha).”

“Yea cwutches”.

I love our conversations  ☺️❤️.


Why are my messages coming in late?

Hi everyone,

I want to apologize to those who have sent me comments or responded back to me, but never received anything in return. It turns out that my messages have not been coming through! Im not sure why this is happening on my phone, but I would hate for anyone to think I’m being rude and just not responding. That’s definitely not the case. Hopefully I can  figure out soon so I don’t go another month with unseen messages and comments. My apologies once again.

Have a good night,

– Jennie G

Where’s Doggy Pirate?! 


I spent at least 45 minutes searching for my son’s fricking Doggy Pirate, his most favorite stuffy in the entire world! He went to bed crying because I could not find him anywhere. Every place he told me he had him, I checked. Nothing! No doggy Pirate! My husband gets home and about 15 min later, he remembers that my son likes to hide things in his ship. Well… Guess who was hiding in the ship?! Yup! Doggy Fricking Pirate! Oh the stress I went through looking for this thing! Smh. I guess it makes sense that a doggy pirate would be stuffed into a ship, even though he doesn’t belong there… I don’t even want to imagine what would have happened for the next couple of days, had doggy not been found. 

What is Fatherhood to a Father?

I wrote this post for Father’s Day. However, I have added 2 more interviews and I would love to share them with you now. I hope you enjoy the new interviewees and their take on fatherhood.

The chronicles of a stay-at-home mom

Today is Father’s Day and I’ve decided to do something different. I’ve interviewed a couple of different father’s, family and friends, to get their take on fatherhood. Sometimes it feels as if we do not hear much from the men who are there, every single day, helping in raising their children. Let’s get inside their heads for a bit and learn how they feel about fatherhood as well as their hopes for their children’s future. Enjoy!

1. How close are you to your father? – Not as close as I would like to be.

2. What was your favorite thing to do together & why? – Playing chess with him. It was a moment that was just us, sitting at a table engaged in an intellectual and strategic battle. It was one of the first games he taught me and I valued those moments we…
