How To Care For Your Caregiver; Nightmares.

Real life CGL type relationships;

-Have a bottle of water next to the bed!
-Big supply of kisses and hugs
-Let them cuddle your favorite stuffie !
-Turn on your listening ears and ask if they’re okay, how they feel, and if they need to talk about it
-Be a brave little toaster even if the nightmare is scary to you too
-Assure them that their nightmare is just a dream but validate that it was scary and hard.
-Hug and kiss them more!
-Try to read or tell them their favorite story so that they can fall back asleep, act it out with your stuffies !
-If they can’t go back to bed find their favorite snack and put on a mutually loved movie.
-If they don’t want to talk about it or need space, it isn’t your fault! Sometimes needing care or having a nightmare is embarrassing or private.
-Let them know that you’re there for them and that you love them bunches.

For long distance CGL type relationships;

-Ask your caregiver to call you on skype or the phone so you can talk to them sweetly.
- If you can call make lots of kissy noises !
-Be a brave little toaster when listening to your caregivers nightmare even if it’s really scary!
-Tell them to get a drink of water cause it always helps!
-Find funny or cute pictures online and send it to them!
-Watch a movie by pressing play at the same time on your devices
-Read or tell them a story through chat or voice ! If you have a cam you can use your stuffies to act it out.
- If your caregiver needs space, it isn’t your fault! It might be easier for them to deal with a nightmare by themselves.
-But give them lots of love and tell them you’re there for them when they want to talk.

This semester has been ROUGH!

I felt like I was behind the entire time. I couldn’t get caught up and my fitness journey suffered for it. I am so thankful that I have only 8 MORE DAYS!

Today is my last day of classes and I am beyond excited to get back to my routine and clear my head for the spring semester!! 💪

Different seasons of life call us to take different roles. Keep God the center and your eyes to the sky because you will do great things with a full heart 💕

Caring for your Caregiver.

Hey guys! I noticed everything on my dash is geared towards how to care for a little, which is great! But I decided that I wanted to make a series of posts on how a little can care for their caregiver! The first post will be about what to do when you’re caregiver has a nightmare. I would really appreciate it if you guys could send me some ideas for “Caring for your caregiver when they’re sick.” The nightmare post will be up in about an hour!

Black Owned Business for people that are breastfeeding!!!


From the site:

“Milky Mama was created by Krystal Nicole Duhaney, a Registered Nurse and breastfeeding mommy of two. After having her second child and returning to work, Krystal struggled with her milk supply and realized that there were very few resources for breastfeeding mothers in the same predicament. She knew then that she had to come up with a solution that would help to increase her milk supply!

Using her knowledge as a Registered Nurse and love for baking, Duhaney developed a milk-making cookie recipe and fell in love with the results. This lactation cookies dramatically increased her supply. Soon after, she decided that she could not keep her discovery a secret and had to share this with other mothers who were going through a similar situation. So, in November of 2015, Milky Mama was born.

Today, Milky Mama’s product line includes All-Natural cookies, brownies (which are Krystal’s favorite), emergency brownies, lactation oatmeal, tropical iced tea, lactation lemonade, and lactation smoothie mix.“
