Single Mom and Dating??

My last post was about Single Parenting but today is about dating I guess. For the longest time, I looked for someone to be with because I was afraid of doing it all by myself now that I'm settled in to being a single mom. Someone found me and thinking I'm close to perfect, I think he's crazy.

Being called perfect I know it's a compliment. Knowing but yet hearing it is almost hard to accept having a "pet" nickname by just being called baby girl or babe makes me smile and it should. Knowing someone that is interested in you and that they even know you have a kid and don't care is a big step. Right now it's coming down to how or when do I introduce him to my kid. Knowing that he's stated he'd like to meet him already makes me nervous yet excited. 

At the same time with all of this going on I don't want my son to get attached just in case it doesn't work out. That's when the single parenting thing comes in again when is to soon how long should I wait should I just kinda have him around and not say anything. The biggest one is how do I explain it or do I have to where he's 3 he knows who his dad is and he knows I have guy friends.  
That person who will care for you and do almost anything for you will show up when you're ready to stop looking. Now when I say stop looking I'm not saying delete all of those dating profiles I'm saying that the more you look the harder it'll be for them to find you. I found some great friends when I was looking I found my best friend Ashley who has my back and is there for me all I have to do is call or video chat with her since we don't live in the same town.

So before I get into how I met this guy I've been talking about. I need to clarify I have 3 best friends crazy I know it's possible to have more than one Ashley she is my down to earth friend who gives the greatest advice and I don't have to explain all of it to her. Jaden is my crazy best friend the one who talks me into doing crazy and dumb stuff. Janessa is my mom friend who also has a similar past to mine. These 3 keep me grounded and balanced but the friend that got this all rolling would be my crazy friend.

Jaden calls me up telling me she's gonna come over with a friend.....well Jaden brings random people over to my all the time nothing new right? Well turns out I kind of already knew this friend we talked on tinder and he came across me on the wrong day I was frustrated with my work.

🙈My life it literally a rom-com🙈

I wanted this post to be inspirational somehow but it's kind of spiraled out of control and I don't know which direction to take it to now. All I know if I have a wonderful man who wants to meet my son some crazy friends and the more I think about my life may be more balanced than I thought. I stopped looking for love and I don't know what this is between me and him. I am down for the ride on where ever it'll take me.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
