You Think You Know…

You have no idea! Hi everyone and welcome to a dollop of my life. Here on the blog you will find a little bit of everything. My main goal is to showcase my family, how we came to be the Walker and Rice Household, and how I cope with issues that arise. We are a blended family who love to make memories with each other. I am an educated mother, step mother, Army Veteran, former Department of Defense employee and personal trainer; to my current status as a fitness, health and wellness enthusiast and entrepreneur. I started working at 14 years of age, so the transition from working full time as a single parent to a married stay at home mom was welcomed, but took a lot of getting use to. I chose to stay at home to be that constant support for my children and to take off some of the pressure of doing it ALL as a full time working mom and wife. Needless to say, being at home has definitely been a blessing and I know that it is a part of the plan that God has for my life. Because of my status, I’m able to advocate for my children and have time to take care of myself and do what makes me feel content. Don’t get it twisted. My job starts when I wake up in the morning, and doesn’t end, but I’m cool with that because there are enormous perks to this mom business. I’m proud to be a mother and a wife and am elated to take care of the ones I love. A few of my passions that you’ll see here include parenting and co-parenting, mental health awareness, my spiritual growth, Turner Syndrome awareness, my love for food, and my affiliation with the National Physique Committee as a figure competitor. Please be sure to subscribe so you can be the first to hear about my new posts and I humbly thank you for being here.

Happily,

Shavonne Marie

      Keyausha,

      Girl you got me over here tearin’ up early in the morning! I don’t have the best memory lol, but that totally sounds like something you would say, because you have always been one of the most positive and optimistic people I know. Thank you for your support Key, talking and getting stuff off my mind is very therapeutic for me. I hope to keep up the momentum for a long time!

    This touches my heart in so many way that one would never understand unless they’ve gone through it or something similar. I lost my first child a daughter 33 years ago to what is known as Dandywalker Syndrome. It the time not much was known about it other then webbed hands,feet and extra chromosome and extra fluid on the brain . I mysef being young and my ex husband not knowing anything about it it was very hard for me to understand and accept. While i didnt want to have anymore children afterwards. But I’m so happy that you were able to receive the knowledge for TS for you and Morgan

      Joelia,
      I’m so sorry for your loss and the effect losing a child had on you emotionally. I will never understand exactly what you went through, but I sympathize with you and your family. Education is definitely key in understanding chromosomal disorders. That is why I advocate for Morgan. Thank you so much for sharing your story, lady. Virtual hugs to you 😉
