I am many things, I am a woman, a wife, an entrepreneur, a daughter, a big sister and friend. But more than anything, I am the proud mother of an extraordinary 6-year-old girl and handsome 3-year-old boy. This motherhood journey is challenging, but yet the most rewarding. I am excited about sharing that journey with the world every Wednesday.

  1. Wow, Diane. That is really, REALLY beautiful!

    I wonder if you are calling your daughter ME on purpose. It was a little confusing at first….and then later you called her Eli?? Maybe just call her Baby M if you don’t want to say her name….

    I just wanted to say I totally get the importance of knowing MLK’s daughters’ names. So often we talk about historical figures and famous people and we forget they’re really people just like us…..When we recognize our common humanity, we start to truly understand the commitment, sacrifices and mistakes those famous people have made. And we can truly find compassion and understanding for them.

    • Hey Melissa, Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog. I totally agree with you about our historical figures. ME stands for Morgan Elizabeth. Initially I was avoiding using her name, but it’s just too difficult. Eli, however is a boy in her class she was telling me about. Please follow the blog and forward to friends. I look forward to open and honest dialogue.

  2. Hi Diane,

    You don’t know me and I barely know of your husband through a mutual friend, however I came across your blog on facebook one late sleepless night when my 4 year had a fever, and I have to say I have truly enjoyed reading it….so much that I can’t wait till the next one…I just want to say thank you for sharing and being an inspiration to me…I am a mother of four ages 20, 13, 10 and 4 and didn’t think anyone understood the trials and tribulations, but they are a joy and a blessing so again I say thank you and keep writing.


    • Thanks so much Kimberly. I appreciate your comments. I am sorry your baby was sick, but I am mighty glad you stopped by. Parenthood is the most challenging job you can’t prepare for. You’ve got years on the job and I look forward to your feedback.

  3. I was on a search for other Black bloggers on WordPress and came across your site. I like your writing, but I especially like the fact that you’re writing so genuinely and intimately about your family. I think you have a new follower in me.

    • Greetings Dr. Brown. I am so glad you stopped by and I can’t wait to check out your page as well. In all I do, I aim to be transparent and authentic. It’s not always pretty, and definitely not flawless, but it’s real. What a wonderful journey.
