Raw and Honest Blog of a New Single Mom

I am a single mother of a biracial baby boy just trying to make it on my own. This journey is hard, yet rewarding. Blogging is my therapy, these words are my heart, and people doing better and being inspired by what I have written is my passion and hope.

Site’s Up, Money’s Down!

Posted on | May 26, 2009 | 4 Comments

Hello everyone. I’m baaaack! My site was hacked, was momentarily shut down and I was unable to get in. Because of the malware some of the sites in the hosting system got mixed up and were redirecting people from my site through the 404. I hope no one clicked around on the redirected sites, if you did please do a thorough virus scan on your computer asap! And I do apologize for the threat, inconvenience and mixup. My hosting says everything has been removed now and should be all good to go.


Anyway, I’m 34 weeks pregnant this week! I’ve found myself nesting a lot lately .. well the best I can being this large. I managed to get baby boy his own little closet cleaned out n organized in my becomingly cramped studio (I seriously can’t wait to move) though not all of his stuff fits in it. He still has so much more that needs to be squished in and organized.

Here’s a picture of Mr. Spoiled Brat’s closet so far


I went crazy last week and spent nearly $1,000 buying last minute items for him that I didn’t get at his shower and I have yet to organize any of it. I swear I can’t walk into a store without shopping the baby section and I can’t leave the baby section without making a purchase (or 5). I’ve been promising myself I’m going to quit. Really. I’m going to try. Gosh I’m going to make him so spoiled. I know that if I keep this up I will have given birth to Sid Vicious v2 but I can’t help myself. I’m such a proud and excited mommy who just can’t be stopped hehe. (Speaking of Sid Vicious that makes me want to go out and buy some Rock-inspired baby gear. I saw some at BRU and Target that was sooooo cute! OY!)

    To this day, I can’t walk past the baby section without browsing… and there’s NOTHING (save for a few bath supplies) that I could possibly need in there for a 2.5 year-old.

    And I had to pass BRU on my way home from work EVERY DAY when I was preggers. It was trouble, I tell you.. BIG trouble.

    I can’t believe how far along you are. I’m seriously giddy with anticipation for ya, girl!
