This is a story all about how my life got twisted upside down…. spoiler alert…I did not become the prince of bel-air, instead I became a mom.
I had never thought that I would get pregnant out of wedlock…I know, I know, it was 2020 why did this even matter to me?
It could have been due to my upbringing in a strict, old-fashioned household. Or the fact that I’ve always thought of myself as an old soul. Regardless, marriage before children was always my plan. Of course, things don’t always go according to plan. I think it’s safe to say that the last few years have definitely solidified that for many of us…womp womp.
So, there I was, only having been in my long-distance relationship for a year. Granted, with a man whom I loved dearly, but had only visited a handful of times. Telling him I was pregnant wasn’t the hard part. That part came some months later as we stood in his moms living room exchanging our generic vows for our not so generic, impromptu “wedding” …because baby….and pandemic... and love? but that’s a whole other story for another blog post.
At that point, it was safe to say that my life was moving at an incredibly fast pace. Although my partner and I had always talked about marriage being our next step, neither one of us had imagined that we would be getting married in 2020, let alone having a baby.
With us living in two different countries, we now needed to come together so we could be a family. As my partner already had two children and therefore was already rooted, it was only natural for me to pick up my life and move to be with him and his boys. So to be clear, in one year she became, mom, wife, and bonus momma…all while trying to stay alive during a global pandemic… queue intense yet sporadic sobbing, daily laundry and lots of laughs….oh and some coffee, copious amounts of coffee, being this daring will have you sleeping….well…not at all, with that said, adding a weekly blog to the mix couldn't hurt? dare I say, stay tuned?
It gets better...or worse, depending on how you see it....none the less, this is my life and "ima stick beside it"
