12 years ago today.....

I became a mommy for the first time. It seems like such a life time ago. Back then it was just her and I against the world. Serina was such a calm, good baby, it was almost unfair for me to have it so easy. Especially when you're as young as I was and a single parent. She's now a tween and boy is it getting HARD! How I wish she was still that good little baby :( I have so many fears when it comes to Serina. I worry if she'll make the right choices, if she'll stay safe and if we'll have a good relationship. I do my best to guide her in the right direction and I try to open the lines of communication with her. I always try to make sure she knows that I am always here for her and that there isn't anything she can't tell me. I've had a couple of mini "heart attacks" recently, because of some issues that arose but everything seems to have been resolved. This did cause me to re-emphasize to her that there is no problem that we can't fix, as long as she comes to me for help. I never want her to feel hopeless, as I did many times in my younger years. But honestly, you will never know what your children will do and if they'll make wise decisions. All you can do is your best to guide them and I sure hope my best is enough.

Happy birthday Serina!! You are truly a blessing :)

Happy Birthday Serina. I understand you completely. I was a really young mom and my son is now 17 and it was tough at times. But I did the same as you and opened the lines of communication and while I have had tough moments. I know I did the best job and today he has grown into a man who next year will graduate from High School and leave for college. Now that I have lived the teenage years of my oldest son I am preparing for the my other 2 boys who are 12 & 10. OMG someone help me LOL. Happy Birthday again!!
