Moms… You’re Doing OK! #YoureDoingOKMom

This sponsored post is in partnership with The Motherhood and Johnson’s Baby!

Mother’s Day is just days away. This day couples with my birthday. Growing up, I always wanted to be a mom. My mom would come into my bedroom with my baby dolls lined up and I would play “house” for hours. Once I became an adult, I could not wait to actually hold my own child in my arms.


Holding my first-born daughter M, was the best feeling in the whole wide world. I wouldn’t even let her go to the nursery. I just wanted to hold her forever. Less than two years later, we welcomed baby L!


The girls are my world. Tears well up in my eyes just thinking of the beautiful girls that God gave my husband and I. At times I feel like that I am not being the best mother that the girls deserve and then I get a priceless note from them that reminds me that… I am doing OK!

This video makes me smile so much. Those nights that my sweet L would wake up every two hours, I wouldn’t have traded for anything. Her gummy smile would say… I love you mom!


As they grow older, I think of all the nights my mom would stay up with me to study. M loves me to quiz her on all her study guides. My mom would sit and do the same thing with me for many years. She never complained once and always did it with a smile. L has now started studying for tests and we come up with very creative ways to make it fun so she will not lose interest. My mom would do the same for me. I love you MOM!

I love you M and L. Thank you for making me a mom. You will always have my heart.

Through all the hospital stays, the chaotic days at home and the big smile days, life as a mother for the last 11 years have been the best days of my life.



Moms, this Mother’s Day remember… you’re doing OK!

JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES, the JOHNSON’S® Baby brand’s charitable platform, is committed to ensuring that every baby has a healthy and happy start through educational and social initiatives, product donations, and financial support.

As an extension of this promise, for every view of the “You’re Doing OK, Mom” video above between now and Mother’s Day, JOHNSON’S® Baby will donate $1 to Save the Children®, up to $50,000.

Easter Warms the Heart

I truly wish every day could be Easter and Christmas. The love, faith and family that contributes to these holidays are just beautiful connections for every one.


It warmed my heart to be able to go back to church since my surgery. The only downfall, I wanted to sing so bad during service. Praise songs just lift my spirits so much. Christian music just moves my soul and can bring me to happy tears quite frequently. I love praising our Lord so cannot wait until I can sing.

After church was joining family for Easter festivities. Of course, I had to be restricted with what I can and cannot do since the sun was shining in full force. It did not matter. Being surrounded by loving family, meeting new baby cousin and enjoying the laughter from the kids was all just simply amazing. My aunt had concocted me up some pureed food so I did not walk away hungry. I’m just ready to CHEW!

It has been nice to get back into routine and get outside the house. A week from today, I head to Chapel Hill to get my splint removed. The countdown is on for sure. The following day, I will return to work. I’m ready I believe. Hopefully, I will not get too tired. It will be so grand to get back into a normal routine.

Easter warms the heart. I hope your heart was warmed this past weekend. Remember, God is good!
