By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/29/14 I've heard over and over, you have choices. It's true. I've heard over and over, there are consequences to your choices. It's true. And the other day I heard, "there are no rewards."I hung up from that conversation and began to cry because I realized, there are no rewards for… Continue reading BITCH!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/5/14 “Get some balls”. I here this all the time. I'm not male bashing, just once again trying to wrap my mind around this “new age” man. I’ve sometimes heard this combined with the phrase, “stop acting like a girl”. Hmm…really gotta let that sink in. I just don’t understand how… Continue reading Man Up!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/4/14 I posed this question on Facebook and in a few conversations at work and other conversations some weeks ago. “Question to my single moms out there, say you had your own place, car, decent income to support yourself and children, would you consider a serious relationship with a man… Continue reading She’s Head of the Household
I needed to clear my head. The gym wasn’t doing it for me. Somehow, the elliptical machine did little to change the past. A 25-year-old past was sneaking up on me and I couldn’t turn to anyone and tell them. My girlfriends could never know and my family would flip out if they knew their… Continue reading Maria

The concept when I initiated this blog, was to focus on child-rearing with a no-nonsense approach. When… Continue reading Growing Up
Aleandra 10/23/13 Baby, we’re having a baby. No that wasn’t right. In eight months, we’re going to be a family of five not four. This was still my favorite. Sean. I’m pregnant. Honest and straightforward. How was I going to tell my husband about this pregnancy? Over the past two years we had grown separate… Continue reading Aleandra
Margaret “Yeah. Give me about like an hour or two.” I hung up with my assistant and struggled to open my eyes. The pounding behind my right eye was not the way I wanted to start my day. Not only was I starting my day like this, I’m pretty sure it’s how I ended… Continue reading Margaret
Tasha “Could you please say something to me?” my husband pleaded. “What do you want me to say? This is hard. I really just need a bit to think about this.” How could he expect an answer?
