Family Hair Lil Mama Lil Man Week in the Life Of

A Week in the Life Of….

This will more than likely become a weekly feature where I outline all of the normal, crazy and just down right foolishness that I may encounter during the week. Please note: MY week runs from Sunday to Thursday. On Fridays I do nothing…other than change diapers, and pick up from school. With that being said….    

Last weekend we travelled to Tallahassee for my stepdaughter’s birthday party. Glad to say everything went well. Who said blended families can’t work out…although at times our “situation” seems more like a pureed family. Geesh, there has to be a cut off..I’ll give deets sometime next week.    

I got a mani, pedi AND my eyebrows waxed..that’s EPIC    

My son’s teacher sent home a note stating that the children MUST address their valentines. I’m thinking she didn’t give thought to the fact that preschoolers write very slow and and with 20 envelopes to address that could become a day long task. We’re starting on Saturday, we should be done by Thursday.    

Tuesday, I straight up needed a do over. But that’s not how it works. What I don’t do is wallow in pity…and that’s all I’mma say about that.    

Wednesday, I received a PSP from Klout. Woot Woot, I got Klout!  I’m moving up in the blogging world.  

After practicing piano everyday last week with my son ( something that I NEVER do) he got to lessons today and played like he had never seen the music before. *sigh* Not to mention she gave him his recital music. OMG..I think I am going to have to take lessons just to practice that piece of Mozart with him.    

Addison : Sleep :: Oil : Water….testing your SAT skills! In a nutshell Addison is back to not sleeping. She is teething again.    

Adrian has somehow managed to put a hole in FIVE pair of jeans..FIVE. Some of the jeans have holes in both knees. I hate to send him to school with holey jeans but we dont’ have it like that. Headed to Walmart this weekend for some knee patches.    



I have an astronomical amount of hair and getting it done professionally is at least $80..nope, no funds for that so I have tried many products that didn’t work but I came across Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie. OMG, this stuff worked wonders on my hair. I picked it up from Target for $9.99 and I am hooked. All of the below pics were taken after my hair has been like this for a week…be forewarned the Mr. and I were being playing photog and model, nevermind us!    

twisted nightly



                                                                      I take down the twists and VOILA    




Say hey to Lil Man..he wanted to get in on the fun!


How has your week treated you?!!

    wow he goes through jeans fast. I am glad my son does not grow because he is just fitting a 4 toddler and he is about to be 5 so all his 5ts that i bought him last yr before christmas will just fit him good this yr. Poor baby I remember those days wait I am still there never mind. I wanted another child 10 yrs from now but my husband said not with him so I should not have to be going through baby stages anymore. Well the week is over so you can relax tommorow wait it’s friday sry baby still up. Have a great weekend

    Him and those jeans! He needs to stop going so hard! Lol.

    Poor baby girl and those teeth. I know the feeling.

    My week has been slow as hell. Jasmine has been really good this week tho and that made me happy. I think her toddler bed will be delivered this weekend so that should be fun.

    Ok the hair?! JEALOUS!!! So pretty! Oh and the jeans, don’t think of it as sending him to school with holes think of it as the “distressed” look he just wanted to be in style!

    omg the jeans. My son is hardest on jeans and shoes. They don’t stand a chance. Your hair is absolutely luscious. I’ve heard so many good things about that smoothie! I’m gonna have to try it.

    Holely and distressed jeans are in now. My mom got my baby sister a pair (on sale of course) that were originally priced at $35!! On the ride home, my mom talked about how she probably shouldn’t have wasted her money on the jeans because back in her day they just put holes in their jeans themselves. So, I wouldn’t be so overly stressed over the jean situation.

    However, I will say that I’ve found some pretty good buys at the Goodwills here. A lot of the stores donate unsold clothing that has been marked out of stock. So, that would be a great place to hunt down tons of jeans for just a few bucks.

    How has my week treated me? Well, Moo and I enjoyed a four day working vacation down at Grandma’s needless to say I was glad to be back home Friday. Then I realized it was the hubby’s weekend to pick up the spy and my relief kind of went downward. However, after a lovely day at the mall, my mood is stabilizing. LOL. Not sweating the small stuff or the stuff I can’t change.

    LOVING the twist out. I’ve heard great things about that Sheamoisture smoothie. The product addict in me is twitching right now.

    I so feel you on the jeans!!! Oh girl, the jeans. My son is so so hard on jeans and sneakers. I need to be more resourceful like you! It never occurred to me to patch them up. Thanks for the tip 🙂

    holey cow, five pairs! Patches are in order! Reinforced knees are very neccessary I guess. I think JC Penney still sells them? Good luck.
    On to hair, your hair is gorgeous! Wow, I may have to try that product. I don’t have very thick hair, but it is unrully and often dry. Great twist out!
