Celebrating My Best Friend This Mother's Day

When I was a child, I always knew in my heart I wanted to be a mom and have children of my own one day. I became a mother at a very young age, at 19 years old I had my son and from that day on, my life changed forever. With love, support and guidance from my mom, my parenting journey began, and I knew right then and there, I wanted to be the mother to my children that my mom was and still is to me.

My mom is my best friend, she's an amazing woman and I'm so glad that I have her in my life. We didn't always see eye to eye when I was younger and it took me longer than I'd like to admit that I needed her. The older I got, the more of her I saw in myself and I realized how much we had in common. We've been through a lot together and I'm so thankful she's been there for me through it all. 

I am her first born child and her only daughter, so I feel like we have a special bond - one that I'm learning to share with my little princess. I'm so blessed to call her my mother and my best friend, she's also a wonderful grandmother to my children, we couldn't imagine our lives with out her. My mom is kind, caring and loving, she's taught me to be a better person, a better mom, she's taught me to fight for my special needs son and to never give up when life gets tough. I know I can call on her day or night for anything, whether it's advice or if I just need a listening ear.

Survival Tips For Single Moms

Do you ever wonder how moms get anything done? Have you ever been a single mom? I'm not going to lie it's hard, it's super tough at first but as time goes on it gets easier or maybe I just got better at figuring it all out? Either way, it takes a lot to survive and I'm excited to share my best survival tips that I've learned over the years!

Spring Time Fun

Hello spring! I don't think we had much of a winter at all, but I'm so glad to see spring, I hope it sticks around for a while before the summer heat hits and we all start melting! I can't even believe it's April already, we've been so busy! 

My Big Guy had his first baseball game of the season on Easter weekend so it was a crazy, jam-packed weekend! I was able to snap a few pictures of him, and I think he did pretty good overall! We attended church Easter morning and then caught up with family and friends for a bbq later that evening, I always go home so stuffed - the food is just amazing at my Papa's house!
