KarithHey, Y'all I'm Karith, a Texas-raised bi-coastal transplant and I am on way to becoming a first-time mommy. I am also a 30-something professional stand-up comedian, author and speaker who resides in both NYC and LA. I performs on each coast and many of the states in between. I recently got married and even more recently found out that we were pregnant. Yes, it’s a “Honeymoon Baby”! So, now, because of my occupation I have to have fun, make fun, and laugh my way through this major event in my life. I want all of you who can relate to have a laugh too and if all goes well- something pretty fantastic- aside from my first child will come out of this. You can read more about my adventure on <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and learn more about me and my comedy on <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.

Dear God…A Mommy’s Prayer

Dear God, I know that for years- even when I was a little girl I prayed for the day I would become a mother. You heard me and in Your infinite wisdom You knew it was something that I would NOT have been ready for in my 20’s.

Now some of y’all are going to have some issues with this post, but I’m not here to people please, (well, not entirely.) I’m here to tell it like it is and to tell the truth- and hopefully give you a chuckle. As a mother of an almost toddler with a new one on the…

New Year, New Baby!

‘Cause why the heck not?! Some people plan their kids so they’re spaced out evenly over every couple of years. Those people have the luxury of time. So if you can do that- more power to ya! Just for the record, I planned this baby too. I planned for it not to be still inside…

A Whale Of A Time

I think it’s safe to say that a good portion of Americans use the word AWESOME- constantly. That word may have become mainstream in the 80’s but unlike big hair, pop rocks and A Flock of Seagulls it has remained. (To be honest I think I only miss Pop Rocks). No question, “awesome” is WAY…

The Chiuhuahua vs. The Child

I knew that this day would come- rather I hoped it would come. Although I must admit I had mixed emotions about the day my REAL baby would take precedence over my dog baby. I didn’t fully believe it was going to happen. I mean for almost four years this Chihuahua was my life.

For Shizzle My Bizzle

You’ve heard of “party poopers” well in the beginning we were “poop party-ers.” See, you never fully appreciate the act until you’re the parent of a newborn and knowing that your baby is #1 at number two means you are at least doing part of the job right. Because what they leave in that little diaper…

iPotty??? Ummm, How About iCan’t.

So this being a new mommy is wild stuff. I’m doing things I had no idea I was capable of like exercising unconditional patience during teething & sleep-fighting tantrums. I’m pulling out all the stops to breastfeed (See The Best Damn Lactation Cookies You’ll Ever Eat.) I’ve also now been relegated from watching popular adult…
