WHAT I NEVER IMAGINED WHEN I WAS A TEEN MOM 150 150 Paula

I can remember back to when I was a teen mom and always feeling overwhelmed. It was not easy being a young mom. Especially, when most of my friends were hanging out all the time and having fun without me. It felt like I would never see the day again in where I would get a break. But here I am 24 years later and life has changed so much. What I thought back then was hard, I can say today it was worth it all. The time went so fast, at least that is how I feel now.

I wanted to share one of my most recent facebook post with you for some encouragement. Also, below you will find some tips that might be helpful to being a young mommy. Today my son is 24 and he is my personal trainer. (Who would of ever imagined?)

Few tips for the young moms:

  1. Pray and ask God to give you strength daily
  2. Even though it’s not easy, enjoy the process of being a young mommy
  3. Try to find new friend’s who understand or might be a mommy too
  4. Know that this season isn’t forever, it really does go quick
  5. Maybe find a friend or babysitter who is safe and can give you a break once in while
  6. If you are unsure about something when raising your baby, google search or don’t be afraid to ask around

 

This picture makes my heart melt.

Son, As you were training me today, putting your hand on my shoulder to adjust my form, giving me that look that I need to push myself harder, you made me think, it was worth it all. Even though I was scared at 16 to be your mommy and our favorite dinners were Doritos, banana muffins, and chocolate milk sitting on the couch way past your bedtime, I think we are alright! Thank you Jesus for your hand of protection.
