What Does Every Parent Need???

I bet you thought the first line was going to be the answer.


Its sad to think or know that tomorrow is never promised to you and that something could happen to you and your kids would be left behind.

Life insurance is a big thing to have, even if you don’t have kids, it secures that when you die someone will get funds and if you were to die young (because most young people don’t think that much about death) you will need funeral expenses or could possibly need something paid off.

Now lets take a moment and learn about life insurance…

According to Review.com, the best place to acquire life insurance is TIAA Life. Why? The life policy with them can convert to a permanent policy at any moment without any further evidence of insurability.

A few other places on their ‘Top Picks’ is New York Life and Amica Life Insurance.

On Reviews.com they give you an options to compare some places that are closer to you about life insurance which is very helpful if you’re young and have no idea where to even start or look. Also, if you’re a mom of a 8 month old that loves to take your phone so researching is like a no this is very helpful and I encourage you to try it out.

So… you might think there is only one type of insurance but really there is two: term and permanent.

Its pretty obvious (at least to me) what the difference in those two are but term is just for a set period of time and will run out with no value at a set date in time while permanent, also known as whole life, life insurance is for well your whole life! I personally would go with whole life because whos to say someone who might want your insurance might want to you know…by you know date.

Side note: I watch Investigation Discovery too much.

Because I know I want to make sure my family is set up for the future! 

Life, Love, & Happiness…

I can truly say I am extremely happy in my life right now. I can’t believe I’m getting married this November. 

It makes me reflect back to what was going on last year during this time. Which also I’ve almost had this blog for a year! Wow! Crazy! 

I was pregnant last year with my daughter. Thinking everything was going perfect in my life then when really it was going down hill. 

My pregnancy was still a secret at this time to most. Well I hadn’t publicly announced it yet. Her dad was leading me on this lie. It was horrible and now that I’m thinking about it it’s sad. How did I not see the signs or listen to my best friend back then. I didn’t want to believe what was happening. 

Now, I’m planning a wedding, rasing my beautiful daughter, I’m happy for once, and life is finally normal. 

I’m out of the toxic relationship I was in. Feeling I had to show I was dominate when other girls were around, worried I would say the wrong thing and ruin my relationship. Worried he was cheating. Or is he going to break up with me again? Only to come back to me. The worst three years of my life. 

I’ve started a new life. A new me. A new everything. 

If I had to relive it again to get to where I am I would. Because I love my daughter and my fiancée that much. 

My sweet girl will be 8 months this month. 

I won’t be speaking about her dad and his fiancée anymore as much as I would want to vent about a few things. 

We venture to the zoo for the first time tomorrow! 

Life of a Single Mom…it’s gotten better. 

Forgiving and Forgetting…

These past couple of weeks I feel I’ve grown up more. 

I’ve done things I never thought I would do. 

I’ve fallen more inlove with my fiancée which I didn’t realize I could do. I have completely accepted that Abbie is going to have another ‘mom’ (not using the stepmom word because it just doesn’t feel like a family word. Weird?) AND…I have asked her to help me plan the big 1 party for Abbie. 

Reading past post…this is a HUGE step and accomplishment for me. I never thought I could reach this level. It’s weird and I’m trying to making it more normal. Which I don’t really know how to make it more normal. Either way it’s a step in the right direction. 

We will all be spending Easter together since it’s Abbie’s first. Also which is my 24th birthday. Gah. I’m getting old….

I adore and love my fiancée and my wonderful beautiful daughter. 

I honestly can’t wait to have another one. 

Am I crazy? Lol.

My sweet Abbie. 

Time For More Positivity…

There’s one thing I need more in life and that’s positivity. 

First. I kinda like baby daddies fiancée. If I got to know her more we probably realize we have a lot in common (is this weird to say??) I honestly like her more than him. (Also is that weird to say??). Life. 

Two. IM GETTING FREAKING MARRIED. To the man of my dreams. My one true love. The one I know I’m suppose to be with. The one that god made for meeeee! 

Third. I’m a mom. That’s my job. 24/7 365. No days off. I’m absolutely in love with my daughter. She’s my perfect sidekick. She’s just perfection because she’s mine and obviously I would think this. 

Fourth. I’ve decided to say…F*** the haters… please just leave me alone. I don’t need you. No ones needs you. I don’t care that you keep up with my life (if you do?) and that you read this blog. 

Fun fact: it’s not slander when it’s true. 

Fifth. I don’t even know. My life is 100% better. I never thought I would get here this soon. I thought it would take years to get here. I wasn’t even looking to date and bam. I meet the love of my life. Who freaking knew. 

So that’s that folks. 


I Deleted Our Memories…

This early morning I deleted the memories. To create new ones. 

Yours were already deleted so why not. 

I’m so excited for this new life. 

I have a wonderful fiancée. I have an amazing adorable daughter. 

You don’t have to marry the guy who gave you kids because he’s not always perfect for you.

I’m so glad I dodged that bullet and now I have what I have. 

I couldn’t be happier and I didn’t realize I could feel this way ❤️🙌🏻

To My Fiancée…

It takes a very special guy to date a single mom but you didn’t think twice about it. 

You deal with her late night crys with no complaints. 

You will help me without even me asking. 

You’ll even change poop diapers. 

On those nights you know I’m struggling because I’m that exhausted you’ll get up with Abbie just so I can have a few minutes of extra sleep. 

You’ll make a bottle anytime I ask with no fuss. 

You even wanted to learn the bottle cleaning process. 

You know when I’m overwhelmed and will take over in the sweetest way because you know at times I just need a nap. 

When we are headed places you’ll carry her to the car, buckle her in, and always make sure everything’s safe. 

You’ll even go to shot appointments with me and help me not cry. 

You didn’t have to take on this task but you did it bravely and amazingly. 

You didn’t have to date a single mom but you are. 

You don’t have to do all these things plus millions of other things that I could name but you do. 

I love you so much ❤️ November will be here soon.
