Life as a mom :)

Life as a single mom has been a fun and interesting challenge. I have a wonderful 2 1/2 year old son named Jonathan. He's been a very easy going child pretty much since he was born, don't get me wrong he didn't sleep through the night until he was 6 months old.  I lost my husband just 16 days after he was born, it was a crazy situation, so I don't know which way is worse for my son, but sometimes I think it's for the better.
Anyways I do the best I can and I love him with every last piece of me. He makes me laugh everyday, I think children have the power to heal you if you let them. He does have his moments as all two year olds do, and sometimes you just have to hold your breath and walk away from them, during a temper tantrum over the littlest thing, which is almost funny.
He's definitely a true boy he's all about cars and trucks, which we don't leave the house with out 5 or more, oh and don't forget kitty and mouse cause it's the end of the world :) He chases the dogs and cats around the house with his dump truck thinking its a game and there running in fear of being ran over. the things that make you smile when you think about it.
I love how kids have not a care in the world, they run up out of no where hug you tight and say I love you mommy, nothing feels better than that. You can take the good with the bad, and it will make a stronger person in the long run.  I have dated and I would like to find the one, but at the same time it almost feels like a hassle, everyone always seems to wanna change you. I've done just fine on my own so far I don't need anyone but I would like to have someone.
 I guess when I find him he'll think I'm perfect.

All right this is my first attempted at writing about my son and I. I do find it hard to talk about everything with any one friend. It's almost like I have to chose what I tell them. I need somewhere I can talk and not be judged by people, just help me with the challenges of everyday life.


  1. Your little boy is so cute!
    I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. If you ever need someone to 'talk to' via the blogs/email - I'm out here! Another mom...my little guy is 20 months old, so we're not far behind you. *hugs*

  2. Hey ellemae! Welcome to the world of blogging. I think you did a wonderful job of telling us about yourself and family. I am so thankful that you have a son to "cushion" your anguish of the loss of your hubby. Not that it will take away the feelings of missing him, but just hearing the soft voice of your son will bring the memories of him back to you. Take care and I hope to see you around the blog world.

    Love & Prayers to you and yours,
