    I didn't think I could accomplish most of the tasks that i've been assigned but one thing I have learned is that I had to put myself last and place my child first. I had to give up a lot of fun times to stay home and take care of my child. Being a mother has matured me in a lot...

    "What's being a mom like?" Honestly, it's a lot like being responsible for tiny drunk people who constantly need your attention/ focus every four minutes. Best way I can describe it. Kids are definitely...a handful to say the least. But having them has made my life so much more...

    Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing, even when you're not sure what the right thing is, and to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything...
