oh mama

Once upon a time there was a girl. She was a selfish girl. She loved shopping, spending huge amounts of money paying for nothing of importance just designer clothes and jewelry. Her afternoons were spent at the tanning beds, hanging out with friends, or working out, nothing of real value.

Then one day this girl met a boy. This boy turned her world upside down. This boy made her want to be a wife. This girl became his wife.

Just a short year after she became his wife, this girl had transformed. She was 19 years old and 9 months away from finishing her bachelor's degree. She was working two jobs, cooking, cleaning, and spending far less money than ever. About this time, selfish girl found out her eggo was preggo.

As soon as selfish girl saw the two lines on the EPT she morphed almost magically into selfless girl. Her little tiny baby became her world.

Soon her little tiny baby was born, and she spent hours and hours nursing him, bathing him, cuddling him, reading to him. She had to go back to work to provide for little tiny baby and this broke her heart. Even sooner, she was back at work AND school.

Her days were now spent up from 5:30 am to 11:30 pm to make sure everything for little tiny baby was just right. Every night she went to bed exhausted, but still with a million things running through her mind. Despite her circumstances she was happy. Beyond happy. She couldn't imagine her life without little tiny baby. She wanted to get up early and she wanted to be up late because it meant time with her little tiny baby.

This girl had truly transformed. This girl had become a mother. This girl loved her life. This girl found the purpose to her life...his name was Brooks Everest Bowyer.

Happy Mother's Day...only a little late : )
