Funny Story

Image result for african american baby faces

So today I woke up and I realized that everyday could be a funny story. When looking at my boys and the things they try to learn are so funny. My youngest has been trying to mock my facial expressions. This in itself is a joy but I have come to notice that I have an array of facial expressions. I had not realized how much I express with my face. My little pumpkin is hilarious and I’m loving it.

He makes this poopy face that would make anyone laugh. My pumpkin is too small to understand what the face means, but he really enjoys making it. My eldest will give you the fiercest side eye EVER! Which I am not bragging about and this is where mommy has to make some changes. Good or bad they are watching me and I have to keep in mind that they are very impressionable.

As a parent it is easy to forget that each little things is being absorbed by our little ones. Which makes it even more important that I am careful about what I say and do. Like my silly faces and smart responses. I am not just raising my baby boys with my husband we are raising men. Men who will one day be on their own and living lives that are a reflection of the lifestyle we exposed them too. So silly faces need to decrease and positive statements, books, shows and music need to increase. I will say my pumpkin is still going to be a little silly like his mother but that’s ok because we need to have joy and laughter in our lives above all. I hope you could get a little giggle from this and totally relate to this story.

This is just a friendly story from your local T.P.C. (The Parent Counselor)

Super Mom!!

Super Mom!!

Super-mom

As a working mother you may always feel like you are being pulled from left to right. I can relate! This is because we are and we do not always know when to say STOP! I have come to the realization that a small part of me likes being busy. It’s the idea that if I’m not busy then I haven’t accomplished anything. This too could be a dangerous thing for many moms. Post-partum is a real thing and many new moms are trying to be super moms, like myself, and do not give the appropriate time to stop and take care of self. Due to my training I was able to recognize this and take a step back. Many women do not have the same insight as myself and drive yourselves down the path towards depression. That tricky thing call depression can creep up on you and take you buy surprise. Don’t fall into this pattern. Take some time for you. I am blessed to have a husband whom could understand this. He would take the kids so I could have some me time, or even some girl time. Send me to get my hair done and so on and so forth. Now moms don’t forget dad either. Men to can fall into the hands of depression after a new child/children come into the picture. Let him out with the fellas or send him to get some needed individual time. With all this one on one time don’t fall short and not address the most important relationship. The two of  you as a couple. Couple time is much needed, the both of you making the other feel special, sexy and loved. The two as a unit are what allowed this special chapter called parenthood to begin. Don’t let it fall to the waist side due to neglect. Supper moms are over rated, but healthy happy moms are what everyone needs. So but down the cell phone, turn that paper over and all pens down. It’s time to get back to what’s important and that’s family, love and support for one another. This is just a friendly reminder from your local T.P.C (The Parent Counselor). LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE!

New Definition

New Definition

New DefinitionHow we define ourselves has been an intricate part of our lives. For many of us it has been taught from a young age. For myself it was shown as the way for people to determine your worth.

So what is my worth? Who determines what that is? How can it be changed or adjusted for new interactions?

Well my worth is based how I define it and who I give the power to define my definition. I am more than just a mother, wife, daughter and friend. I am also a motivator, naturalist and spiritual being.  These are just a few things that define who I am and what others can expect from me.

We get so caught up with, how to act and when not to act. Whom to impress and who is not worth of our time. What to give and not give. Whom to help and not help. As time goes on we get lost in all this confusion and we lose sight of the person we once where and where we are headed.

So this is where you begin and I assist you in that journey. Gaining insight to the changes that have happened. Categorizing and prioritizing your goals and aspirations in life and moving forward. As a motivational speaker and life coach I have assist many in this journey for change. Whether you are a new parent or a CEO of a major corporation. I have assisted many in understanding and redefining self.

In my upcoming workshop “What to Expect, When Expecting” I will help families gain an understanding of what is ahead and how they can prepare. Foe example, understanding what postpartum is and how to help your partner during these transitional times. If you or any one you know are interested in the workshop or would like a little assistance in other areas, you are more than welcomed to contact me.  From your neighborhood T.P.C.

We Need To Talk…

We Need To Talk…

We Need to TalkFour words that women tend to use when things get serious and which most men absolutely hate to hear.   But in all seriousness when a relationship or situation gets to the point where these four little words need to be used then maybe it’s time to stop, talk, hear and listen!  Now, did you notice that I used both hear and listen?  That’s because you may think they mean the same thing but they really don’t.  I can hear your words, but am I really listening to what you are saying to me.  When couples and families talk about a breakdown in communication, this is what they mean.  Everyone is talking, yelling, screaming, gesturing…but no one is actually LISTENING to what the other is saying or trying to say.  So the next time you think there might be “breakdown” in communication with your loved one(s) think about these four other words…stop, talk, hear and listen!

If you are interested in rebuilding communication skills with your loved one, contact us at MGS Counseling and Therapy Services, LLC.  We can help you reconnect.
