Diary: Raising my two boys

Thursday, November 2, 2017

Having my 1st son, Mason at age 20 taught me that in life you have to make sure you and yours are good. At times you have to depend on yourself and yourself only. Let me tell you ... when people say the first pregnancy is different than the second, believe them. I am now a mother of two, Mason (8) and the newest edition Roman Michael who is 13 months. This last pregnancy was not easy for me emotionally or physically. I could only sleep on my left side because I could not breathe on my right side. I had Braxton hicks really bad and morning sickness until  I was about 7 months pregnant. I was so ready to have him, but the crazy thing is I sometimes miss my belly. Not the actual pregnancy part lol. Being in a house full of testosterone with them and their dad is a headache, but I love every bit of it. I love being a mother of two, the best part is that my children get to see 1st hand each part of me. A lot of times the world expects so much from us women/mothers. I love that I am perfectly imperfect. I was afraid of how it would be raising two black boys while still growing my own damn self. What I worried about during pregnancy does not even cross my mind now. Funny how life forces us to get shit done. My new mommy goal is to continue to create memorable experiences with my family. If you ask me if I'd do it again ... I would do it over and over again, in the same skin I'm in❤️!
