Unlikely Martha

This, That & The Third

Hi Friends,

Just getting around to posting for the week. My weekend was non stop and crazy. Nothing exceptionally exciting but jam packed. I photographed my good friend Niya. She is being featured in a magazine highlighting women entrepreneurs and she needed a photo for the magazine cover. I am thrilled that they liked the photo I took and decided to use it. I also did the photography for a cotillion all day Sunday. All day.

Divinitee is moving along. I hit a moment of discouragement last week and had to remind myself that all things take hard work. Cried some tears, devised a new plan and I’m back at it. I am glad to say that Fearless is pretty much sold out!!!! It is now reordered and will be back in stock by the end of the week for those who have contacted me. I also now have a blog banner for those who have inquired. If you’re still interested in letting me hold up a piece of your sidebar real estate let me know. I’m working to get affiliate links done so I can show my thanks…but give me a minute.

I’m in the process of applying to online schools with hopes of becoming an adjunct professor. I was a bit perturbed to find that I am no longer active in the school’s system and had to reapply to get a copy of my transcripts. Teaching online is something that I have wanted to do for awhile so I am fervently seeking out those opportunities. If you know of some…share the wealth!

I am in the throes of potty training and ……I need help. I don’t even remember what I did with my son. S.O.S. I need suggestions!

I’ve been thrifting, I am going to get a thrift haul video up this week…my greatest find the other week was a brand new pair of BCBG sandals for $10. I told y’all to get some of this thrift game.

The Weather!!!!! It is going to be in the 80s for the rest of the week. I spent this past evening outside with my neighbors watching the children play in the cul-de-sac, and we may or may not have guzzled down a bottle of Moscato while doing so. I am looking forward to the lazy hazy days of summer. I am thinking we will take a few mini trips this summer instead of a huge vacation. That way I can be cheap and plan accordingly!

Now, y’all know I am far from an event planner and details are a weak point yet Trina and I are in the process of planning an incredible event for a great cause for those of you in the Atlanta area, I’m also working on a baby shower, and Lil Mama’s party. That being said my comments on your blogs may be slight the next few weeks but I’m going to get around (not like that) I promise!

I have an awesome giveaway coming up soon..Make sure you check back early next week.

Oh, and I’m going to BlogHer if you haven’t seen my blog bling to your right. I can’t wait to meet all of my NYC besties in my head. Are you going?

About that March photo a day challenge…Yeah, I’ll catch y’all in April…maybe.

Welp, that’s all I got. What’s good in your hood or ‘burb.

Bored? Sorry.

    Stay encouraged, because your tee’s are definitely what it is! I want to look into adjunct-ing as well. Just been too tired (lazy) to look into it wholeheartedly. Enjoy the rest of your week!!!

    You’re one busy mommy! Wow potty training already…my hubby changed the toilet seats to include the potty seat and so Madison felt like she was using the potty instead of the “big toilet” and we switched to pull ups without going back to diapers because that confuses them.

    I know Strayer University is huge for offering online classes you may want to check them out if you haven’t already.

    I too am potty training my 26 month old son…the thing is should I teach him to stand or sit down while peeing? Yes, that’s what this mama has been thinking about.

      With my son I do remember teaching him to sit down first and then once he got that down, I started letting him go when his dad went and he got the picture. Potty training sucks!

    Congrats on EVERYTHING you got going on, girl!!

    I don’t even want to talk about potty training. My son is not working with me on that one. He’s like “no! don’t make me!” or he’ll sit there and do nothing and the minute he gets down, he pees… on the floor. Yeah, fun.

    Potty training has me SHOOK and I don’t want to think about it anymore.
    I crossing my fingers and trying to make my nickels turn into a pot of gold so that I can attend Blog Her!
    I know that Strayer is always looking. Also, a friend just picked up a gig with Univ of MD University College (UMUC). I’ll send you an email if I think of any others.

    I’m in the process of potty training my little M right now– she wasn’t doing to well but now I let her sit and watch Dora on my ipad while she’s doing her business and that seems to work–lol. Also just stay consistent— try to take her around the same times throughout the day and eventually she will just go without you telling her. oh! and no pull-ups– go directly to undies ( pull-ups keeps them comfortable so they wet more) oh! and take the potty out of the bathroom and put it somewhere like the hallway so she will just pass it and see it and then go— then slowly move it back into the bathroom. Just a couple of tips that my mother in law helped me with 🙂 She’s been in childcare for 30+ years– so that’s ALOT of potty training!

    About potty training, my advice is, don’t force the issue, She’ll go when shes ready like Jas is doing. I stopped trying to make her go and now she’s training herself and its being pretty consistant about it. I think she’ll be fully trained by next month and we can switch to the real panties instead of the pull ups. I just make sure I offer her the potty in the morning and random times throughout the day. She also goes and sits on her potty whenever i go tinkle. Thats whats actually working for us. No pressure is what’s best and lots of praise when she goes.

    Yay on all other things. You’re doing great things babes! Keep it up!

    Well YAY that we will get to meet at BlogHer! 🙂

    Congrats on your photo being published, you have got so much going on girl~!

    I am so stuck on potty training my son right now, I can’t talk about it without wanting to bang my head on concrete 🙂 But like everyone says, I suppose we can’t force the issue, they will go when they are ready. I have been meaning to get one of your tees they are just awesome.

      I’m thinking its hard not to push the issue when people are always asking if you have started. I guess you have to be in tune with your own child and let things take place naturally. I’m telling you though, I’m sick of buying and changing diapers!

    You do have a lot going on!! But it’s all worth it! I cannot wait to meet you! It may be before BlogHer because I will be down to visit my girl Trina soon so we all can do dinner! But for now, take breaks and think positive. Everything will fall into place. I cannot help you with potty training! I may be calling you next year to help me!

    Girl!! I was tired just reading this. But I know you got it under control. I would be glad to put your button, SD, etc on my sidebar. Just let me know.
    With potty training we used a reward system and it helped. But honestly I think what helped the
    most was that he got to wear the cartoon underwear and didn’t want
    to get them wet. LOL
    Online adjunct is pretty cool, as you know I’ve done it for a few years. Its a process to get in, but afterwards it fall into place. Good luck!
