It’s been 2 years since we started our homeschool journey, and it has definitely been a journey. Over time I have had an opportunity to collect different kinds of curriculum for our boy’s journey. I want to share some of the favorites that I use for our boy’s ages 4 and 6. If you have any suggestions for what you think I can I add I would love for you to share! Don’t forget to leave a comment below.
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.
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,
Dathyn and Mom
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!

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!

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.
