Saturday ammmmmmmmmm. I’m at the Dressed for Success event to help foster kids get suited and booted for Prom. No pictures allowed so here’s one of moi 🤷🏼♀️. I love this event and pls pls think of volunteering next year with me it’s amazing.
I had some “dejavu”last night . I was working my business on the couch and mom hasn't been feeling the best, so I heard a funny noise and sure enough she was throwing up. So I stayed with her until it settled. .
I literally felt like it was when my girls were little. I would hear a funny noise , I would run in there and sure enough one was throwing up. .
Only this time it was mom.
So as all mothers / daughters do , I slept on the couch. I wanted to be close in case she needed me. Like when my girls were sick or had the flu. I would stay close. .
SO At 6 am she rang her button I jumped up ran in and she says I have to get up for the doctors . So I told her its not until 10 am you have time. But she says she feels much better. So hopefully the doctor's will give us some relief.
Well back from the doctors and yet again a UTI , but we have some hope . This new doctor actually gave us something to try. Apparently it helps quite a bit for senior ladies or women past menopause to slow down the consistent UTI. So fingers crossed this will help. .
P.s. we took her out for lunch too , she has her favourite pizza xcheese , bacon 🥓, mushroom 🍄
Aujourd'hui c'est ton anniversaire...
Aujourd'hui tu devrais souffler ta 59 ieme bougie mais la vie en a décidé autrement.
J'aimerais te serrer dans mes bras, venir avec les enfants et voir ce sourire qui illuminait ton visage.
T'entendre me dire que tu m'aimes que mes enfants sont merveilleux et que nous sommes ton plus beau cadeau...
Mais aujourd'hui je suis la... Sans toi... Sans te voir... Sans te serrer dans mes bras et sans même pouvoir te dire combien je t'aime...
Aujourd'hui comme chaque autre jour tu es dans mon cœur , je pense à toi. Et même s'il saigne tu continues de briller au plus profond de mon être.
Maman joyeux anniversaire, maman tu me manques, maman je t'aime ❤️ #mom#motheranddaughter#mother#amour#love#triste#birthday#picture#photography#souvenirs#maforce
Happy birthday to my sweet birthday buddy, Carrianna! It’s so fun to share my birthday with my oldest daughter. She turns 11 today! Sean and I kept saying it feels like she should be turning 12, in many ways she is very mature and helpful for her age. We are so blessed to have her, and I’m looking forward to the years ahead with her!

🌸 Things I will teach you 🌸
Don’t be afraid of the challenges that life will throw at you. Face them and you’ll come out of them with a bunch of new skills, feeling more confident in yourself and stronger than before! Then one day, you’ll look back and you’ll feel proud of yourself. You’ll know how much you value. •
Im sharing this because it’s funny to me how just 5 years ago I was embarrassing to my teenager and now that shes 21 has her own child and owns her own home she sees it a little different. 5 years ago she saw a crazy mom, she was afraid someone might see me acting goofy but today she sees what the picture doesn’t show...a smiling kid in the cart laughing and loving every minute of mommy being fun and yes embarrassing. This is why I dance when I make dinner and have concerts in the car with my kids, because I won’t always be remembered as embarrassing🤣 but they will remember how much fun their mom can be and those memories are priceless. So jump on your next shopping cart and take a ride 🤣 it’s fun!!! #livelovelaugh#momblogger#priceless#motherhood#motheranddaughter#motherhoodunplugged#beadventurous#goofingoff#besilly#laugh#smilemore#happykids#makingmemories#livingmybestlife
I remember back when I was down didn’t have nowhere to go with my daughter it was something I that really took control over me me mentally and I would break down and cry cus I felt that whatever I did or tried to accomplish wasn’t enough because I had a WEAK MINDSET and I dident have that support system at the time to give me that extra push that extra motivation , I always felt stuck no way out but I couldn’t take the stress I couldn’t take not having anything to provide for my baby so I dident mind having to walk from the #vermont train station to ride the train to my moms house in Compton just to walk a hole 30 mins to get there and walk another 30 back to the station to ride to Crenshaw and walk another 2 whole hours just to get to my CARLS JR JOB “ to stand another 8 and do it ALLOVER again the next DAY
I DIDENT MIND GOING TO ALL MY APPOINTMENTS ON FOOT I DIDENT MIND ALL THE SACRIFICES I HAD TO GO THROUGH JUST TO PUT SOME FOOD IN MY BABYS MOUTH AND KEEP A ROOF OVER OUR HEAD
So with that lil insight being said
I AN MY OWN MOVEMENT
I AM STRONG
I AM POWERFUL
I AM MY OWN MOTIVATION
I AM MY OWN BACK BONE
I AM MY OWN VALIDATION
I AM BLESSED 🙏🏽. SIDE NOTE :BOOK COMING SOON
