Before we dive into diets and supplements, you'll want to sit down and observe your child to better understand their routines, triggers, and behaviors. I did this for a week with Ashton. From the moment he woke up to the time he went to bed, I observed him, recorded everything, and then did it again the next day. From that information, I was able to start mapping out a clear plan of action to understand and tackle Ashton's autism....

Is your baby not reaching their milestones on time? Non-verbal? Not making eye contact? Flapping their arms? Won’t interact with other kids or adults? Or do you just feel in your gut that something isn’t right?...

Everyone says that when you hit 30, you experience some sort of life enlightenment that changes you for the better. 3 years ago, at 29 years old, I called bullshit......

Let me start by saying that I am not a beauty influencer just a curly girl who is on a mission to get some bomb ass curls. So if you are a pro at curly hair, these tools may be a given. But for those of you who have struggled to find your best curly self- this one is for you, Boo....

Skin care was never anything I truly invested myself in until I got older. When I hit 30, my skin forced me to find the best tools to fight adult acne, discoloration and fine lines. After two years, I think I finally have it down to a science. So if you have super sensitive skin with a bit of discoloration and a few fine lines sprinkled in here and there, this is the post for you....

I absolutely love building things from scratch. So, from the moment we moved into our new home (1 year ago), I just knew I was going to build my desk in my craft room/office. I found plans for the perfect desk for my area and I was ready to go! The only problem was that I underestimated how much the wood would cost me so I had to go back to the drawing board....

It’s a weird yet powerful feeling when you actually aspire to be like your child. You always think about being a good role model for them to follow, but sometimes your kid can inspire you to be a better version of yourself. That’s how I feel about my son CJ. I know you have questions so let me explain....

I don’t normally like to talk about my health because I genuinely want The Funny Momma to be a place for Mommas to laugh and/or hear stories that may help encourage them throughout different phases of motherhood.  But a lot of you all have questions regarding my health and want to know what my surgery is all about. Today’s post is me being 1000% honest and vulnerable with my current state. And my current state is: I am completely terrified. In just under six days I am going to have a partial hysterectomy. I know you have questions so let me explain....

Every birthday, I take off of work to pamper myself. That day normally involves Starbucks, the nail salon, the movies, TJMaxx and a relaxing massage- without fail. This year was no different. Well… maybe a little different. This year, my massage was a little bit…ok A LOTTA bit… different than last year. I know you have questions so let me explain....

Everyone has that one person who they wish they never dated. And if you’re one of those “I don’t regret anything in my life” type of people- bitch, stop lying. You know you wish you didn’t date that loser. Since my birthday is on Thursday, I’d like to share the story of my birthday breakup with the ex-boyfriend who I regret, but also want to thank. On my birthday, nine years ago, I not only put this loser in check, I also proved how much of a bad bitch I really am. I know you have questions so let me explain....

And we’re back! If you didn’t read last weeks post, click here to catch up. OK. I hope you’re ready to laugh your ass off. Let’s do this! The day......

You may find this hard to believe, but I have never really been a fan of Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the romantics, but Valentine’s Day......

I can't believe my youngest is 1! The year has gone by so quickly! Since it's was such a special birthday, we put a ton of work (and booze) into this party!  I got almost all of the decorations from Amazon (links below) and I made the food, cake and desserts (with the help of my family and friends). Enjoy!!! ...

My baby boy, Ashton, is turning 1 tomorrow! This year has gone by so quickly! I can’t believe that this time last year I was prepping to bring my baby......

OK guys, so this is a very personal post for a lot of people. So personal, in fact, that I made sure to send a copy to all parties involved to make sure that everyone was comfortable with this post before it went live. Everyone approved. It’s lit. Let’s do this thang....

The New Year is here! It is officially 2018. Happy New Year!!!!! As 2017 was closing out, I reflected on all of the amazing moments of 2017 – the birth......

Christmas is basically here! I can’t believe it! I also can’t believe that I got all of my shopping done already- which is literally a Christmas miracle! Anyway, in honor......

If you tuned in to the latest episode of #FunnyMommaFriday, you may have heard me mentioned that I despise children. Not my own children, of course. BUT just about everyone......

When I think about Thanksgiving, the first thing that comes to mind is family. Not food. Not out-of-state guests. Just spending a day with the ones you love the most.......

We’ve all been through it. It’s two days before Thanksgiving and you’re frantically prepping dinner and cleaning your house for the upcoming holiday. You haven’t done your hair, your mascara......

For this post, I want to talk about something that is not necessarily a momma problem, but a woman problem. Fucking. Fibroids. If you are reading this and you have......

So the other night, Ashton (my youngest) did not want me to get any sleep. Finally, after crying on and off for hours, he was asleep, but I was WIDE......

In honor of Halloween, I want to talk about the scariest place I’ve ever been. This place is a thing of nightmares and a killer of dreams. It’s so upsetting......

I’m a mother of three beautiful, bad-ass boys. CJ (11), Elijah (10) and Ashton (9 months). For those of you who know me or follow me on anything, you know......
