She’s Turning 2 Already?!

by

Camille turns 2 | TheMamaDen.com

Yup, Camille will be 2 on the 20th. Where has the time gone? I know every parent must feel the same way. Camille is doing very good! She transitioned to daycare really well. Her new sleeping arrangement went well and she’s learning at such a fast pace.

Day Care – This was the biggest transition for Camille this year. She had been staying with her grandparents during the day since she was 7 weeks old. She was eager to be with other kids and burn off some energy. ┬áThe center we chose is amazing. I love the staff, curriculum, safety, everything about it. I have no regrets and nothing bad to say.

Picky Eating Parent

Chances are if you're a picky eater you kid is too. Click thru for some options to broaden their palate. | TheMamaDen.com

You ever wonder why your kids only want to eat the same five meals? Well yes, because your kid is a picky eater but are you a picky eating paretn? Hmmm…Let’s discuss for a moment.

I know plenty of parents have an expansive palate and their kids just don’t because toddlers are so toddlerish. But let’s look at a different angle. My mom only eats about four vegetables so growing up my brother and I ate four vegetables and they were always prepared the exact same way. When I was 14 I worked in a soul food restaurant and began eating all kinds of stuff. My mom would be so grossed out. I would come home with meatloaf, stewed tomatoes, bread pudding, rice pudding, squash, spinach and plenty more. She would never touch my food.

Do you hate Monday? Why? Check out these 10 ways you can make Monday your b***h!

Hey Y’all! So let’s talk Mondays. I know, I know, you hate Monday. But why? Because it’s back to work, school, hectic mornings and rushed dinners? Those are viable reasons but can’t we do something to make Mondays better? I think so.

A few years ago I was having a convo with my cousin about how much she absolutely hated Mondays. I get it but I don’t get it. She went on and on about how the weekend is over and it’s the busiest day at work and she’s so tired when it’s over and blah blah blah. My suggestion: find something positive about Monday and focus on that!

Healthy Menstrual Cycles

Does your menstrual cycle get you down? Check out a few tips to make it better. | TheMamaDen.com

Hey Mamas! Let’s talk menstrual cycles for a few. Don’t be shy, we all get one, used to get one or have a daughter that will get one. I’ll go first.

My cycle came late at age 12 or 13. I was the last of all my friends. My cycle was never “normal”. At age 15 or so my Mama took me to the GYN and I was diagnosed with PCOS. I really liked that doc but the older I go I realized she described PCOS all wrong. I was under the impression I would NEVER be able to have kids without surgery or supplements. I was prescribed birth control pills and sent on my way.
