Friendship with my daughters

Good morning and God bless you all. I have a question for you. How was your relationship with your mother? And do you think it affects you today? As for me growing up, I did not have a good relationship with adoptive mother and it still affects me today. I will say that because of my experience it really makes me a better mom for my two daughters. Well, today’s blog post is not about me so let’s start.

I remember crying to God when I was younger I kept telling him  » God if you know I will be a bad mom please don’t ever let me be a mom » I also remember telling God when I will be a mom I want my kids to be my best friends.

I know my oldest daughter is only one year old but I include her in everything I do. Before I blog about something I tell her first. I know she does not understand anything but I just want her to know that she and her sister matters to me.

You guys have no idea how I value their opinions. My youngest is 5 months old and talk to her about my struggles and she looks at like if I’m a crazy lady. But I know one day she’ll understand. I can’t wait for Eliza to turn one so I can take pictures of her. I can never get a good shot of her.

A lot of people ask me why are you so nice and friendly with your kids. Well, the truth is I need them as much as they need me. these kids are my best friends, I’m able to tell them everything because I know they love me. I think by telling my kids everything it will open the door for them to talk to me about everything.

Well, guys, that’s it for today I know it was all over the place but I’m a mess what can I say. I hope you enjoyed this post. I love you all and Stay bless my friends.
