Music Spotlight : Drew Anthuny


Drew Anthuny has become one of my favorite artists after being introduced to him on the Youtube Series First. He brings back the sultry R&B that I fell in love with in the 90s-00s. You can take a listen to one of hits below:  

10 Facts About Me

1.    I have always hated my name and told my mom when I turned 18 I was going to change it (which I never did I just embraced my name and eventually shut up about it).  
2.    I lived in Europe for 6 years.
3.    I have extreme road rage & mini rants in the car because I feel like that’s where I express my frustrations the best.
4.    I’m a homebody; I can stay in the house and be content with doing just that.
5.    I’ve always been self-conscious about my weight or how I look, even though most would believe I am comfortable in my body.
6.    My daughter is my greatest gift, sometimes I look at her or pictures and find myself crying because she’s such an amazing and pure soul.
7.    I’m scared of being alone. Every woman on my dad’s side of his family is either single, never been married, or divorced. I can count on one hand how many of my aunts, cousins, etc are actually married.
8.    I am completely obsessed with the 90s station on Pandora, one of my absolute favorite eras of music.
9.    I have 5 tattoos and 7 piercings; to be honest I regret some of my tattoos now that I’m a little older and wiser.
10.  I have an addiction to tea and wines, weird combination but they are both something I love.

Mommy in Me : Potty Training Woes


I had an initial post about my potty training woes that began about two months ago but decided I would finally share now that Chasity has it down pack. My mom was starting to get angry with me because I still was allowing Chasity to drink from her cup. Everyone but myself kept insisting that Chasity thought her cup was a bottle and she wasn’t drinking from it but more so still trying to soothe herself. 

So after Chasity went away for a week I spent that time throwing away every single cup she had so that way when she got back we could dive head first into potty training with no problems. When she returned to my surprise she did not realize that all her cups were gone and now she would be drinking from a big girl cup and having limits on what she consumed and the time she consumed it at (which I’m still not fully there).  

Now with Chasity 2 months shy of her 3rd birthday is fully potty trained, she lets me know when she has to go and even when I put pull ups on her at night she stays dry all day and night (except when I accidently give her juice or milk after 7).  I’m not sure what to do about that one time where she pees at night because my mom is saying stop giving her juice earlier but even then she still has that one midnight or 3 am tinkle, does anyone have any suggestions? Or should I wake up at that time and take her to the potty?
