Happy First Birthday to my beautiful baby girl. A year ago today, she blessed us with her presence, brought joy, and laughter into our lives. Her personality shines so bright, her humour fills the room, she is the sweetest love.
When J, and I first found out we were going to have a girl, I had mixed feelings about it. Afraid, I didn’t know, or wouldn’t know how to raise one because, I grew up tomboyish. But, just as anyone who is blessed with a baby, everything is a learning process. It had nothing to do with whether or not she was a boy, or girl. What mattered was, who she was on a day-to-day basis. She has made this year, an unforgettable one. She made our time together such a blast, and I couldn’t have spent the long days any better, without her. She fills our hearts with so much love. It’s an amazing feeling to be her mom. So thankful, God, allowed us to be her parents.
Maria, author of Imommy blog. Maria has three children, Apollo (8), Artemis (2), and Cassiopeia (1). She is due to marry her best friend July 2017. Maria used to be a Registered Early Childhood Educator, before having her second child. She is now a SAHM, that is not paid for wearing many other professional hats. She is, and not limited to some of these professional positions: Doctor, Nurse, Nanny, Chef, Maid, Uber Driver, and so on.. When she isn't mothering or tending to all her other unlicensed professional positions, she loves writing and dancing. She is a previous ballroom and latin competitor. Some of her favourite "stuff" are, turtles/turtoises, the colour green (lime - forest), Laneige's Sleeping mask, make-up, and eating (food is her most favourite self-care aspect). Maria is also currently writing a book on her autobiography, which has been ongoing for the last few years, she's certain she'll eventually finish if she could just get over the hump of emotions attached to exploring oneself. As you read Maria's blogs, you'll get a feel of the true individual that she is, which can sometimes be a fine line of crazy and sweet, but not too sweet. Maria hopes you'll enjoy her blog as she does talking in her head to herself as her fingers skim through the letters on her keyboard.
A message from Maria;
I do not intend to use my writing to impose or tell you how motherhood should be done. I am no pro at this, and find as I share my wisdom from my experiences, that it shall uncover parts of your heart that find it relatable. My posts aren't always consistent in writing, but it is meant for you to to take in as it is. Find it humurous, sad, lonely, or helpful. Whatever it is you take from it, it only means one thing.. that I have found a place in your mind for those few minutes you dedicated to reading my crap. Thank you for being here, for giving me the chance to share my thoughts.
