Redbook Magazine + Mommy Delicious = Total Sweetness


A few weeks ago, I caught myself having a conversation about the usual stresses of life -- I’d fallen behind on some things, I had several emails that I needed to respond to, I didn’t want to plop Aiden in front of the TV for a third day in a row just so I could squeeze it all in and bang it out really quickly, blah, blah, blah... You know the drill. 

After my mini rant, the rest of my conversation went a little something like this:
Her: And they want you to write for Redbook?
Me: Ummm… yep.
Her: About what, exactly?
Me: Ya know, motherhood. Young motherhood. Single motherhood. Dispelling the myths about young, single parents by talking about how “we totally got this” and can do a good job at it while juggling other things.
Her: Kinda like you’re doing right now?
Me: *blank stare*
Seriously though, I’m incredibly humbled and honored that I was chosen to be apart of the Redbook Magazine Blog, The Motherboard and I’ll be in great company with some other awesome Writers. It's always been my dream to write with a major magazine and I’m really, really psyched to be writing on the issues/lifestyle of younger, single parents, since, let's face it, we're sometimes glossed over in mainstream media. So… yay!


The Motherboard will be launching on November 30th so be on the lookout for it. (Of course, I’ll let you Lovelies know when my first article goes live.) This delicious mommy (Writer) will be contributing one article per week, so when you don’t catch me over here, come hang with me over there.

If you have any topics that you’d like me to touch upon, shoot me an email or leave ‘em in the comments.

I’m super psyched (did I say that already?!).

It’s gonna be so dope.

High-fives all around.

    1. NOW I DON’T WANNA TALK ABOUT MY LIFE BUT I HAVE FOLLOWED MOST OF THESE CRAPS AND GOT USED. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE TELLING YOU BEWARE THIS BEWARE OF THAT ARE BUNCH OF CRAPS AND SCAMS. THE ONLY WOMAN YOU CAN ACTUALLY TRUST ON SPELL IS ANA SARAH HER EMAIL IS highpriestess4pell@gmail.com, I WOULD HAVE BROUGHT Her RIGHT HERE IN THE UK IF POSSIBLE. SHE DID A WHOLE LOT OF THINGS WHICH I WILL REALLY MENTION HERE BUT THE MOST OF WHAT SHE DID FOR ME WAS HELP ME BROUGHT MY EX BACK SHE IS GREAT AND I MET HER OVER THE INTERNET JUST AS EVERY OTHER PERSON HAS TESTIFIED BUT SHE IS ACTUALLY REAL AND A VERY GOOD SPELL CASTER AND KIND TOO AND SHE IS LIKE A MOTHER TO ME EVER SINCE SHE BROUGHT MY EX BACK. I’M STILL VERY MUCH INDEBTED TO ANA SARAH FOR SAVING MY LIFE AND MY MARRIAGE. I WANT TO LET YOU ALL KNOW THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO TRY ANYBODY ELSE EXCEPT ANA SARAH. HER EMAIL CONTACT IS highpriestess4pell@gmail.com or www.anasarahspiritualhome.yolasite.com

  13. magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.
    his email address is: Nativedoctor101@live.com
    if you want to ask me anything my e-mail is: jannet_madeson@yahoo.com
    Kind Regards,

  15. name is russell i will like us to share tips on how to identify a
    real
    spell caster cos alot of people have fallen victim of scam as i
    have come
    across lots of comments lately (i was a victim too) and from
    experience and
    what i know i decide to open this thread, only fake spell casters
    ask for
    the followings:
    COURIER CHARGES: no matter where you are in the world, no
    matter the
    distance and continent a real spell caster will cast a spell
    effectively
    without you seeing it or the spell caster getting it to you to use it
    so
    long as he has the names or pix..the spell will work itself..
    STRAIGHT: no excuses for failure, if money was needed in the
    first place
    for courier he should have say so, so one can know how
    prepared he is..i
    did rather pay $2000 at once to get my result rather than paying
    $200 for
    excuses to get more money..its not bad paying for items but the
    end result
    might be an excuse
    THREAT: if you get fed up of sending money after money, they
    begin to
    threaten one with death and madness..
    NIGERIA; about 80% of them are nigerians not saying they dont
    have real
    spell casters cos they are spiritually gifted in africa but the
    impersonation is too much, the fake are more than the real..
    i fell a victim of scam twice to a certain dr wodu and dr isaka
    they but
    ripped me to shred before i realised almost $3700 was gone until
    i came
    across dr igodo who told me how to know a fake spell caster, he
    helped me
    get my ex back without failure or excuse in 5 days..we are back
    and happy
    now for about a month..his e-mail is
    greatigodospelltemple@gmail.com..
    lets beware of scammers and share experience, suggestion and

  20. My name is Annold Nutall from North Carolina and my ex-boyfriend dumped me 8 months ago after I caught him having an affair with some other girl and i insulted him and told him never to come close to him again. But i later discovered that i love him so much and cannot do without him and I want him back in my life but he refused to have any contact with me. I was so confused and don't know what to do, so I visited the INTERNET for help and I saw a testimony on how a spell caster helped them to get their ex back so I contacted the spell caster and explained my problems to him... He cast a spell for me and assure me of 3 days that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise, the 3rd day my Joy came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you Dr. Laco of Laco SHRINE & SOLUTION HOME, you are truly talented and gifted, please if you have a similar problem just like the one i was facing before i met with Dr. Laco then, you have to contact him through his email at: (lacopowerfulspellcaster@yahoo.com) for your spell. All thanks to the source of my happiness{ Dr Laco}

  23. My names is Alice Owens am from Canada i want to use this opportunity to thank Dr guru the great doctor who bring back my husband which makes me very happy today so i could not keep the wonderful work he has done for me so i decide to share it with you all because he is real not like those who eat up my money and never do anything for me, i have 2 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago my husband and i has been quarreling about some things he is doing that he had not been doing before,like keeping late at night and drinking i don't know that my husband is having a secret affair with a lady close to my street they do meet after work at one hotel,one day i felt that this is too much to bear then i confronted him one night but he did not listen instead he beat me up in front of our kids then he finally left me for the lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they will never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i couldn’t control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and i always wish he will come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i shouldn’t worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great Doctor email address drgurulovespelltemple@yahoo.com. i was doubting if this man was the solution,because i have tried so many fake Doctor on the internet but they only eat up my money and never work for me so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just 12hours and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after 12hours i heard a knock on the door i went and open the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart ran away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are living happily.that is why i want to say a big thanks to Dr guru This great man made me to understand that there is know problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to contact this great doctor through his mail drgurulovespelltemple@yahoo.com and he will solve your problem

  26. Unimaginable and unbelievable. I am Mary Ken from the United States and i have a good news to share to the entire world. Do you need your ex husband or lover urgently? I wanna tell you that you need not to worry because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or similar to such situation because there is always a hope and a solution to all problem. There is a great spell caster called Dr Miracle who can really solve all your problems. Getting my lover back is what i can't imagine but when I was losing Mike, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly but my Cousin told me about this spell caster who also helped her on the internet. I thought it won't work but i just tried to give this man a chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone rang. Mike was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, This is truly miraculous and the spell caster opened him up to know how much I love and needs him. This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up his eyes to know how much love we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try him because he will help you and make things be the way it ought to be. If you have such problem or similar to this, please contact him on his email: homeoflightandsolution@yahoo.com thank you Dr Miracle in fact you are miraculous and may your gods ever reward you for your good deeds..

  29. My husband left me to be with another woman. and wanted him back. i was jealous and it made us argue all the time until he vanished away, I was desperate to get him back, I wasted so much time and money on getting my lover back after I have tried almost all possibilities to have him back and nothing worked. I became lonely for 2 years. To make it short, I found a spell caster Manifest Spell by accident. I don’t know how I found him and i cant remember. But, when I first saw the good testimonies about his wonderful work and after reading the Testimonials, I decided I had to try and give it one last shot. After the spells, a miracle happened, my husband came home. it was awesome, anyone who needs help, should email manifestspellcast@yahoo.com He is the best.
