Summer Recap

We did a lot this summer and it was a lot of fun. From swimming to the beach to just enjoying life! Though I do wish we did just a bit more, I’m proud we accomplished a lot. So, let’s go!

Swimming lessons:

If you followed my IG stories, we enrolled Bear into swimming. It was rather coaxing to get him to take his lessons and lots of promises were made (and kept). I wouldn’t call Bear a swimmer but he knows the basics. We’re going to enroll him again this fall.

Beach:

Sadly, we didn’t go to the beach very much! We actually only went once but we went on a special day – our 10 year anniversary!

That was pretty cool to explore Long Beach. We haven’t been there in a long while and it was just nice to be surrounded by the ocean breeze. We got to see dolphins swimming! It was for a brief moment; so brief I couldn’t capture a pic, but it was a cool experience!

Enjoying the new place:

We’ve had quite  a few ups and downs in our new place and tbh, we’re so over it. However, it was nice to have Bear experience having a front yard and a back yard.

Besides, how often does an ice cream truck pull up in front of your house? C’mon!

Gun range:

It was my first time shooting a gun and it was very cathartic. No matter where you stand on the gun control issue, I do recommend every woman should learn how to shoot a gun if need be.

Gardening:

This summer we had several epic heat waves so my garden that kicked all sorts of booty during the spring was flopping harder than a Katherine Heigel movie. But I managed to get something!

Being a kid:

I had Bear participate in a lot of kid activities where he could just enjoy himself. I mean, yeah, I’m dope, but sometimes Bear needs someone his own age and size? LOL. It was fun to let him just run around.

Now Bear is starting his final year of preschool and I’m researching many schools around our old neighborhood since we’ll be moving back there pretty soon. Now I get to have Bear in school full-time next year and eh….I’m not sure how I can handle that, LOL.

Shea Moisture Curly Hair Demo!

Hey Fam,

I know it’s been about a minute since Bear and I have done one of these videos but hey, this was super fun to do! In this video, we used the vast majority of Shea Moisture products (as we are Shea Moisture brand ambassadors 2018).

We used the Coconut & Hibiscus Detangler, and the Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Cream. I washed Bear’s hair with the Fragrance-Free Shampoo & Body Wash and used Curly Kids (Not Shea Moisture) for a deep conditioning.

I like doing this videos not only to show how to care for your child’s curly hair but also if you have curly hair, it might help!

So, check out the video! Let me know what you think!
