I’m a 20-year-old mother to the most amazing three-year-old daughter in the world. She is making me better everyday.
Some would categorize me as a single mom, but, excepting a few situations, I don’t really believe in that term. I may be the sole parent in my daughter’s life, but I am certainly not raising her alone. My incredible boyfriend is a wonderful influence in her life and I believe God has an amazing future in the works for us as a family. My parents are also major influences in my daughter’s life, always willing to take care of her and allowing her to turn their home into a jungle gym of toys. And I have also been blessed with the most incredible friends who never miss an opportunity to babysit or just spend time with us.
I am now completing my last semester of undergraduate studies and interning with a local magazine. It has been quite the journey, but I managed to graduate high school shortly after having my baby, and somehow to cram in all of my college courses into three years. I am nervous and excited to be graduating in the spring with an English degree, and anxious to see what in the world I’m going to do with it.
Aside from that, I am also a dancer and fitness freak. I dance at Todd Rosenlieb’s studio and do Crossfit at Wellness One/Crossfit Great Bridge. In my free time, I like to watch AMC shows with my boyfriend, take my daughter on local adventures, and – if there’s still a moment left to breathe – read. Follow me on twitter and Facebook!
Oh, and visit me at my other blog, The Unlimited Mom, where I blog about everything from politics to parenting.
