Slow Down Sunday

Early Sunday Morning, Zac and I decided to visit our old church in Brooklyn. After getting dressed we headed towards our local bus stop and learned the bus wouldn’t come for another 30 minutes and 86’d the whole idea. As an alternate plan, we headed to see my Grandparents and basque in whats left of the 50 degree weather.

Young Mom= Strong Mom

I laugh at how a lot of people walk by me. They look from head to toe. Inspect my stroller and the little man inside. Then smile, surprised as HE smiles as waves hello. I am somewhat young to be a mother. Early twenties with a two year old. I wouldn’t say that’s all too bad. But the preconcieved notions and misconceptions are hilarious. I have met BRILLIANT young mothers. Who are growing in their careers, Married at young but happier than most middle aged adults well worked into their 401k’s.
On my 20th birthday, I went into preterm labor. I checked in to the best hospital Atlanta had to offer but of course, there’s always one. The nurse came in to check if I was still contracting and began to ask questions about my family… How old I was, the age my mother had her first child, none of which were medically related. She lead on to say, “You guys have children YOUNG?! Gotta wait a while, its too early”. The undertone behind her inquiry was SO disheartening. Luckily, all went went but I laugh at the boldness some people have to judge out loud.
Some of us are in school and work full time with children, creating businesses and working whole-heartedly in our careers. Some of us grow to be successful parents with numerous companies and stunning looks (lol). Sometimes I wonder MYSELF how some of them do it. I definitely need the encouragement to achieve all that I desire and admire those who have.
In the coming weeks, I hope to shed some light on the successes of the young parent. Single, Wed, and all. There are a lot of us in the world who make great children and are building on great futures. I look forward to sharing that with the rest of the unaware world.
The inspiration is necessary.
