Moms&BigSisters.

I know you don’t have an easy job. I applauded you! You’re doing great so far! I can’t say much, but just know that you are doing amazing! You’re always in ten different places like Superwoman. You do what you can for your kids. You work long hours and still come home and do a million things. I know we all have days when we just have to tell ourselves that “I Will Survive” and when you reach the end of the day, may yourself a note that reads: “I’m a Survivor” to remind yourself that the day might have been hard, but you made it. If nothing else, take a moment and just tell yourself “Hakuna Matata” and take a day for yourself and your kids.

Men know what we’re talking about if they have ever been laid off and had to been Mr. Mom for a while. But, until they have a day in your shoes, they might not understand it. Maybe it’s your Daughter who doesn’t get it until she has a kid herself and then she’s calling you, crying and saying “In My Daughter’s Eyes, I am the enemy” or “I don’t know what to do”.

Time seems to go by so slow when you’re stuck in a tough situtation. But, when you look back at it in 17 years, it’s gonna have gone by so fast. So, remember, the time will be over before you know it and You’re Gonna Miss This time in several years.

On those days when you feel like you’ve messed up beyond belief, just remember every morning you can tell yourself that A New Day Has Come and you have an opportunity to start over fresh. So, just take one day at a time. Remind yourself “I Am Woman“. We all make mistakes and can have their moments when they are a Bitch but, just remember that we all have a wish for our kids, ย just let them know what it is. Be honest with them, just tell them straight up, “My Wish for you is….”

I know there are days when I can’t do it any more. But, there are also days when I Could Not Ask for More when I am with my son. I love the days when he’s calm and we can just have fun. I can turn on some music and just Dance. I know at the end of the day, I remember that I am more than Blessed. And I know that no matter how old he gets, he will Always Be My Baby.

We may not be the perfect moms, but there are definitely some days when we could deserve a ribbon, so make yourself a Halo for all the good days you have.

I Told You So is a common phrase that often comes between parenthood and kids. But, the best think to remember is that You Gotta Be completely honest and will to make relationships work. I know I’ve been very lunch to have a Mom who has been there for everything. And trust me, some days you ask how did I survive this or How Do I Live like this. Remember all moms, we are all a Fighter at some point in time. We all make it through the toughest of times and I am sure we all wonder where that Sweet Child O’ Mine went, but teenage years will come (I know I was a pain) and the twenties will come and you will have them out of the rebel stage. And we’ll all make it. Just remember to tell yourself, “I’m Every Woman” because we all have times when we wanna rip our hair out, off days, and just times when we need someone there for us. So, call a mom. Take a breathe. But, most importantly….

Keep your chin up gorgeous, they would kill to see you fall.

We would all love to see our parents mess up and rub it in the faces. But, in the end, we do love them. So, thanks Mom! I hope I can be as good as a mom as you have been for me!

Unpredictable.

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar. So, I guess it’s time to be courageous. :-/

My life as I know it is changing. And with that I will determine who I want to be and what I want to become. The key is learning to move on to things that are not so familiar. But, could be better. It’s not that I want to leave all that I love and know. But, when things happen to alter your life. And you suddenly realize that you might be going down the wrong path, you must learn to grow up. When you become a parent, it becomes all about your kid. Everything you do, is for them. It’s not about how you might want to sit around and party all night long or whatever, it’s about how your kid needs a bottle to go to sleep. A diaper change to avoid a diaper rash. A toy to play with. ย It’s no longer about you, it’s about the other little one, innocent, adorable, sometimes a pain in the butt, little man. ๐Ÿ˜€

When you meet someone who can cook and do housework–don’t hesitate a minute–marry him. ๐Ÿ˜€ I love looking at wedding pictures. ๐Ÿ˜€

He he. I get to look at all my friends getting married and I am excited for them. They look so happy and everything. But, at the same time, it gets old seeing everyone happy all the time. It gets old. Don’t tell me that I just need to calm down or relax or that give it some time and someone will come around. I honestly, I don’t wanna hear it. You might be okay with waiting for someone right now. But, at this point in time, I don’t wanna. Lol. I know it should retarded and I am probably throwing a little kid fit. But, at the same time, I am okay with just being me. I don’t have the energy to put into a relationship. Or the time. I don’t want one at the same time, because I also often see that people get divorces, not trying to make you depressed, but eh… That’s kinda how I am a feeling. ๐Ÿ˜€

Some think it’s holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it’s letting go. And some times love, means you do just that. So, I am letting you go.
