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.

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&#

A New Decade or Chapter

It's that time a year again but, I have to do something new this year I'm considered self-employed thanks to my book . I never thought I would be able to say I'm self-employed even though I haven't broken even yet. I'm so grateful for 2019 and am ready to embrace 2020! It let in a new chapter of my life and I'm even working on my second book that will be done here soon. I'm not sure to this day if I took my first book in the right direction. The thing is you live and you learn though I hope to make a difference with my books  or book as of this moment I only have one. I do hope on releasing my second book this year titled Myself. I'm doing something that I never thought I would do but I'm revealing my true self I talked some about what I've been through in You.  I'm taking off my brave face and am going to reveal my feelings it's hard but I'm doing it. The thing is how am I going to help someone if I'm still hiding You . It

Listen to Your Body

I always talk about how important health is mind and body, but it doesn't prepare you for unexpected health issues. Unfortunately, that's what's going on with me. I don't know exactly what's going on I do know I've gotten into the doctor as soon as possible. That's something someone should do if somethings not right monitor it and if it doesn't stop after a few days go to the doctor. I'm no medical professional this is just my opinion. I ended up finding out what was going on. I'm still going through all the treatment it was nothing deadly nothing dangerous. I'm glad everything has been figured out. Remember if something is abnormal with your body check it out your health is important. This is partially the reason I've been gone in the month of November. I found out that I abnormal bleeding in my womanhood. I accidentally overlap with two different types of birth control the depo shot and the arm implant. So that life lesson has been
