Motherhood

There are some roles in my life that come and end like chapters. Then there are my forever roles in life; being a wife and a mother of two. Through all the commotion, I pride myself on making waves and riding them as the days go on, but I lean on my partner, and he leans on me, to bring us balance. Life can be full of surprises and it’s a blessing my two littles are ready to dive in to their dreams with school, sports, dancing and acting. Together, we are a team, we are our biggest fans, and most importantly, we are each other’s best friends. From the start to the end of every day, I am a mother and wife first (along with my original signature smile and hearty laugh that fights through any stressors). Here, I share my knowledge and questions of my own on parenting, relationships and motherhood. I definitely do not have all the answers, but I’m taking on every moment to complete the puzzle that it is— piece by piece!
