YouTube Insights

You learn a lot about yourself when you see what type of videos show up on your YouTube account. For me, it’s mostly BabyFirst TV and Darren Knight (Southern Momma). #motherhood

I’ve learned that I’m a lazy parent who loves crude comedy and Southern stereotypes.

On some real, though…

BabyFirst TV is friggin’ awesome! Both the television and the YouTube channel. They offer programming my daughter finds absolutely mesmerizing. I don’t know what sorcery that is, but it’s super convenient when Momma needs the little Stinker to sit still for awhile.

Speaking of good things to watch, check out this brief video!

You’re welcome. ūüėČ


The Baby Mama of Noble Character

Christian women love comparing themselves to Proverbs 31. I think I would, too. Except Mrs. Proverbs 31 is a wife and I’m not. I’m a single mother. Some days it hurts knowing that I don’t have the perfect family. After all, no little girl says, “I wanna be a baby mama when I grow up.”¬†But I do try to live a life as close to the Bible as possible.

Not just for me, but for my Nugget. I can’t raise her to love the Word if I’m living like a heathen. So I¬†take¬†the Bible and incorporate it into my life as best I can. Hoping that somewhere along the way my daughter will see the importance of following Christ.¬†If I fail in every other area, at least she’ll have Jesus- which is really all she needs. Until then…

Based on Proverbs 31:10-31

30/30 Challenge: Day 29

3030 Challenge - Day 29

I already studied parenting, but this is mom-specific. Because we love moms!

If children are the future then every mother, to some degree, determines the future. Of course we all know God has the final say.

To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children.” (Genesis 3:16)

Pre-baby, I was a very¬†different woman to say the least.¬†As for “nurturing,” the only thing I could keep alive was a resilient wandering Jew.

Momma Vision, That’s How.

momma vision
mom·ma vi·sion

: an ability that accompanies motherhood, allowing the mother to see every move her child makes, and then some, while appearing completely distracted by something else.

Somewhere along the way, I developed an awesome new power.

I’d be cleaning or studying while my baby played nearby. To her, it looked¬†like I was¬†totally engrossed¬†by my chores. Then when she thought¬†she was about to get into some mischief…


And my little scallywag would respond¬†with a¬†sheepish¬†grin like, ‚ÄúHow did you see me?‚ÄĚ

Momma vision, that’s how.

I hear experienced mothers have advanced momma vision which includes the power¬†to see through walls ūüôā
