NEW!!!! Official VLOG channel on YOUTUBE! “THE LIFE OF A MASTERMOM” & MasterMomz TV!

The Life of a mastermom copy

√ Completed! I just finished uploading my first official “The Life of A MasterMom” Vlog on my official youtube channel! YAY! (Mommy Dancing.)

The vlog is a simple personal contribution to the great youtube world that carries a burst of inspiration to moms in general. I do believe that the moms who have dedicated their lives by choice or by need as a stay at home parents will be impacted by this channel. I also have connection videos called MasterMom TV Video that will contain everyday mom how to videos product review, mommy matters topic such as health, scheduling etc.

Being a 7 year stay at home mom, I have learned so many things on my journey about navigating my days and nights with the children, and my heart’s desire is to capture my moments so that I can look back at my own personal growth, and mostly the growth of my babies. Funny enough I have been into youtubing since about 2014, but I remember coming across a ladies youtube page that totally intrigued me simply because we were so much alike with regards to our mothering situation and season.

I reached out to her and she was super sweet. I want my channel to have the same effect on the stay at home moms and moms in general that connect to my channel. I want to remind them that the #momlife has to be taken one day at a time nothing more. So if you are reading and are interesting in anything mom life tune in! I would love suggestions for video themes similar to “A day in the life of a mom, clean up routines, dinner ideas for toddlers etc! Please comment and share what you think would be amazing! Don’t forget to subscribe and hit the little bell for updates and more videos! Thanks in advance for your support!

 

 

My (SAHM) Stay at home Mom-6 Year Journey.

 

 

 

Wow, it’s been six years that I made the choice to leave the world of the corporate work life and become a MasterMom lol. YES, My Journey or being a stay at home mom has been filled with its share of ups and downs and pros and cons. I could imagine that it looks very similar to the journey of many moms who make the choice to stay home with their children and not continue in the traditional way that our society points you in as a means of success.

My journey started 6 years ago when our Prince Dywane Jr.

DF-48
Dywane Dawkins Jr. Our 1st Prince.

was born. When I came home from the hospital and prepared myself for many parts of motherhood I held him and cried from being so overwhelmed by the feeling of instant love. I remember keeping the reality of returning to work in the back of my mind and realizing that I had a job to do in the world. I had a conversation shortly after that pouring out to my husband in great passion the fact that I could not bring myself to leaving my little bean in the arms of a babysitter since we had no family in our state that could be of assistance. We both made the greatest decision ever and that was for me to stay home with our 1st born, 2 years later we tried for our second son Daryn aka MR. Fatts and the real work begin having too little’s under 3 years old. While I always must admit my love, hate relationship with mothering I can say I love every bit of mother more than hating it!

 

Two short years following the birth of our second son with great joy we found out we were pregnant with yet another prince,

 

Mr. Dathyn Declyn aka Big Fat. My heart had been blessed immensely by 3 beautiful sons one after the other. In 2015 I thought long and hard about homeschooling and gracefully walked right into it with dedication and assurance! Each day is filled with a beautiful perspective of seeing our boys grown and thrive. Some days I want to cry, but I know that there is always a bigger purpose in life than what you can initially see and experience. I must say that I am truly grateful to God for His choice to make me a mom, I have thrived in my womanhood the more because of our princes. Day in and out they continue to stretch me and they keep me going to God for direction and patience.

 

 

To all the stay at home moms and caregivers of small children, homeschooling moms, and, dads I want to send you lots of love and a shoutout of encouragement to keep you going. Our dedication to forsaking what we know in our traditional ways of life is going to cause Our children to be so much better in life! If you are a SAHM or Dad I love to read your story share below!

‘Baby Belly Blues’

   

So many people who have not experienced pregnancy, or are simply just beginning the journey more than likely will not be able to fully conceive that having a baby can turn in to the ‘Baby Belly Blues.’ I haven’t been consistent or truth be told had an ounce of energy to document my recent pregnancy journey. Every time I have found out that I was pregnant, I have promised myself that I would journal and document my wonderful 9 month experience. Well this is my 3rd full term pregnancy, and I have failed again. Pregnancy can be so much more different from you may daydream it to be before you actually experience it. Currently in my 8th month counting down the days till I meet my sweet prince I am at one of the hardest stages of pregnancy. You feel stuck mentally at times. I am totally bounced around in my emotions towards the pregnancy feeling frustrated by the pain in my body and excited by the kick all at the same time. It’s a hard and long journey, but in life what is easy? Many woman really become surprised at how unhappy you really can be during pregnancy, not in the sense of being ungrateful but mainly feeling blue because of the process of pregnancy, and the hard toll it can take on your body and mind. I honestly feel terrible for elephants, they are pregnant for about 2 years! Wow I couldn’t imagine that, but I understand their struggle somewhat seeing as though, I managed to get pregnant every 2 years in the past 4 years lol. One of the biggest things that I’ve learned about my pregnancy experience is to effortlessly clear my surrounding of all unnecessary aggravation. You have to be sure to control all negativity that has the potential to impact you during such a precious time. I’ve found myself not to be as social as usual, but those that a closest to me totally understand the circumstance and do not take it personal. But they support me through this short season of helping my baby to grow and develop. So mammaz enjoy your pregnancy experience! In spite of it being rough and down right stressful at times embrace the short, but long season and ‘make that baby.’ All other things can be put aside until the little precious soul arrives. Below here are a few tipz to help you through what may be the ‘Baby Belly Blues.’

Lots of Mommy Love!

“Baby Belly Blues MasterMomz Tipz”

1.Keep what’s important first: Be sure to make up your mind to stay focused on what matters most. Your primary concern should be your unborn child.

2. Take breaks: If you have to turn the phone off because your feeling overwhelmed, then do it and don’t feel guilty. Just communicate clearly with those that you love.

3. Understand that you won’t be pregnant forever: Everything in life is seasonal. Nothing last forever, when you understand this principle you’ll be able to handle your blue days better. Be grateful for your pregnancy experience in spite of what your feeling.

The Progressive Journey Of Mothering Small Children.

The gifts we are given in this life are amazing. One of these gifts is the great responsibility of parenting a little life that is helplessly depending on you for their every need in their season of growing. Motherhood is such a wide and vast subject to address because there are so many phases, levels and experiences that are discovered as the process of motherhood takes place. I believe that it’s important for those who are in their mothering season to embrace whatever part of the experience they are going through and to maximize it to it’s fullness. When you ask a mother what motherhood is, be ready to receive several different definitions based upon that mother’s experience and season of motherhood. But the one thing all mothers hold as a common ground is the love that they have for their children no matter the age.

Being a mother of 3 small children ages 4, 2 and one on the way this November, has given me so many experiences. My main experience as a mother in this season revolves around close care and nurturing my boys as they each develop in their individual ways. I honestly never imagined that I could be so tired, but at the end of each crazy energy filled day my reward is the satisfaction of knowing that each one of my heaven sent special gifts have been taken care of to the best of my ability. Mothering small children takes many small qualities that have to be developed as you go through each day. There are obviously many characteristics that must be developed in order to be a great parent. But first it’s important to acknowledge the fact that as a mother you will never be perfect. Imperfections and trial and error are inevitable. Four of the most important characteristics that can help you to be a great MasterMom, as I would call the mothering experience especially dealing with small children, are the following, patience, acceptance, organization and consistency.

From the moment you make the decision to conceive, or even if you find out and are completely surprised, the “journey of patience” will begin. As mothers, we wait 9 long months and struggle through some of the greatest emotions and physical changes in such a rapid time that all results in the birth of a beautiful living soul, your bundle of joy. Following your birth, the sleepless nights of feeding and diaper changes begins. If you’re a nursing mom, you’ll wait patiently for your milk to come in and then start the bonding that comes along with nursing your little angel. Each step of development of your little one gives you a deeper revelation of life and the blessing it is to have a baby. During the process of raising small children, you’ll lose your mind a time or two or wonder what you were thinking, but through all the mixed emotions, you’ll be led into the next characteristic of mothering, which is acceptance.

Throughout this experience, mothers tend to begin to level out their crazy emotions and negative thoughts that rise because of their fears & failed experiences from not feeling like the perfect mother because nursing your baby didn’t work out or the baby accidentally rolled off the bed. When mothers can accept the fact that they can only do the best that they can and mistakes come with the experience then the beginning stages of mothering can become more enjoyable than overwhelming. Sometimes you have to let the chips fall where they may.

Organization is another characteristic that will be the best friend of any mother of small children. It’s all about setting a pace and a plan and following through. But it’s important to remember that all won’t always go as planned and guess what, that’s ok! Children always thrive when they have order and direction and it keeps them from becoming overwhelmed, because they are being programmed to know what’s next. If you forget, don’t worry they will be sure to remind you.

Lastly, the characteristic of consistency is vital. Like I mentioned previously, little ones thrive off of order and direction. In my experience, my 4 year old does great when he’s on a schedule and is heavily occupied each day. Remember everyday of this new life for children is a growing, learning and exploring experience. This is why children get into everything, they don’t climb on the table and knock everything down to drive you nuts. They are simply exploring and learning. It’s so important as mothers to change your mindset and really study and invest in your little ones. By doing this, you are given more insight into who these little people are becoming and why they do what they do during their different periods of growth. Every mother should enjoy the experience and journey of motherhood. It shifts from one season to next so swiftly and you don’t want to miss any of the precious moments. Make a conscious decision to do the best that you can each day by consciously developing the needed tools so that your little legacies can enjoy the experience of you mothering them as well. Hold fast to these small tokens and enjoy the journey of motherhood.

Pot Roast?

So today I made my first pot roast. It was quite easy might I add. Truth be told, when you’re a MasterMom cook it doesn’t take much to throw together a new meal! I am so excited to share this new dish with my family. It’s amazing the satisfaction that comes with being a great homemaker. People don’t understand the value of up keeping their homes and taking care of the needs of their first priority in life, which is their families. Stay at home Momz and Dadz don’t you dare be ashamed to let people know what you do for a living. It’s a great contribution to our world and society to serve your family first! So kudos to all of you hard working, housebound people lol! Your family loves you and appreciates you if no one else does it’s all good!
