My whole life I’ve wanted a daughter. I wanted the chance to raise a girl to be strong and to know her value in the world. I wanted the chance to show her everything she could be in life and support her in reaching every dream. To help her realize anything is possible because she is capable, intelligent, kind and loved by her mama. Unconditionally loved. I wanted to take the love I got from my mom, which was messy, imperfect and conditional and make it stronger. Make it bulletproof… make it unconditional. Today is National Daughters Day. I am so glad I get the chance to celebrate it. To be the mother I always wanted and to be the mother I believe I can be. The mother that Breslyn deserves. And if I fall short… thank God the girl has two moms lol. To our daughter Breslyn, thank you for making me a mom! You were dreamt of long before you existed and you are still greater than my wildest dreams. You are wanted and loved beyond measure. And will be ALWAYS. Sorry for the double post today. But not really sorry at all! ❤️ LIKE + SAVE + SHARE Family photo by: @deemyersphotography #nationaldaughterday #nationaldaughtersday #nationaldaughterday💕 #samesexparents #realmotherhood #mommyblog #samesexfamily #lgbtfamily #motherhoodjourney #motherslove #motherhoodinspired #thisismotherhood #team2moms #momblogger #firsttimemom #firsttimemommy #lesbianmoms #blackmoms #twomomsquad #babygirl #IGmotherhood #honestmotherhood #mommyblogger #newbaby #newbabygirl #firsttimeparent #firsttimeparents #babygirlphoto #babygirl

I’m a #BabyDovePartner because my mother trusted Dove with my skin as a baby and I still use it as an adult. Thanks to Dove, I’ve enjoyed decades of smooth, protected, soft and nourished skin. Now that I have my own child, I wouldn’t trust anyone else to protect Baby Breslyn’s delicate skin. @BabyDoveCare Rich Moisture Body Wash and Lotion help me make sure that Breslyn’s skin is moisturized, hydrated and protected. We chose to use Baby Dove because it’s by designed with sensitive skin in mind, it’s hypoallergenic and has 100% skin natural nutrients. 4 out of 5 parents switched to Baby Dove after trialing Baby Dove products for 7 days. Join the Baby Dove #SwitchChallenge to keep your baby moisturized and healthy. #bathtime #motherhood #momlife #honestmotherhood #babywash #babyskin #rawmotherhood #twomoms

Did the fact that you’re a parent take a minute to sink in for anyone else? Asking for a friend lol!! I find myself shocked that I’m actual responsible for an entire other human life. I’m someone else’s mom!!! Breslyn is now two months old! And honestly I don’t know where the time went! But I do know that time stood still when I said the words “MY DAUGHTER” out loud when I was talking to someone the other day! I have a daughter!!! It’s a huge life change but a life change I prayed for and the best life change I could’ve imagined! 𝗖𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗲𝗹𝘀𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲? 𝗛𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗵𝘂𝗴𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀 𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆?

It’s been almost a year since my mother blocked me. We haven’t spoken since right after my father died. I still can’t imagine blocking my only child. Especially now that I have my own! I found out that she asked my cousin for a photo of her grandchild. She was told if she wanted a photo of her grandchild then she’d have to ask her child. I’d say I’m still waiting… But I’m not. I stopped waiting for my Mom to unconditionally love me. Because I’m busy unconditionally loving my child. I’m busy breaking generational trauma. I’m being the Mom that my daughter deserves. I’m busy embracing the little parts of my daughter’s personality that emerge knowing she could blossom into someone entirely unexpected but somehow still greater than my wildest dreams. I whisper to Breslyn at night, “I will love you no matter who you grow to be, no matter who you choose to love and no matter what life you choose to lead. I am and always will be your safe space.” I hope the message sinks in. I hope it’s the backbone of her belief in herself. I hope it’s the frame of her growing self worth. I hope it protects her in this world. That’s a mother’s UNCONDITIONAL love. That’s the best gift I have to give her.

Parenting. Doesn’t. Equal. Martyrdom. Before I even had Breslyn, I got warnings about what and how much I’d have to give up. “Be ready to never sleep again!” “No more traveling once the baby comes!” “Say goodbye to your ME time!” I won’t tell you that my life is exactly the same now that I’m a parent but I welcomed the change that having a baby would bring. But I refuse to be some sort of martyr who resents my child down the road. I make sure carve out time ME time because self care is important. I’m able to do that because I have a supportive partner. I do the same for her. We have a family trip planned at the end of the month. Will it involve a little more flexibility? Sure! But our daughter is a part of our family. Not some obligatory guest who invited herself. Moral of the story: the best mom isn’t a mom who gave up EVERYTHING she loves for parenthood. But a mom who takes time for herself so she can show up for her kids being the BEST version of herself!

I’m always shocked that this is such a difficult concept for some people to grasp, but here we are! Consider this your reminder that: You can be LGBTQ+ 𝗔𝗡𝗗 Be happily married 𝗔𝗡𝗗 Have a family The path to parenthood might look different for us, but our families are JUST AS VALID as everyone else’s. So because it bears repeating, I’ll say it one more time! LGBTQ+ FAMILIES. ARE. VALID. 𝗗𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗴𝗴𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝗱𝘆𝗻𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗰?

It takes teamwork to make the dream work! Never has that saying been more true than when you’re navigating life as a new parent! I love that whether it’s bath time, bedtime or changing dirty diapers, Kim is doing her share of the work! Why? Because she’s Breslyn’s other parent!! I’m breastfeeding and pumping so that Kim can also feed our baby. So Kim gets up for middle of the night feedings. We’re in the trenches together and I can tell you Kim has definitely been peed on, barfed on and pooped on! So if you’re a parent, regardless of sex/gender, pitch in and get your hands dirty! Your partner will more than appreciate it! Also, how funny is our daughter’s face?!? 😂🤣 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼𝗲𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗻𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘂𝗽 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁?

Repeat after me: My child doesn’t need me to be a rich parent. My child doesn’t need me to be a perfect parent. My child doesn’t need me to be a straight parent. My child doesn’t need me to be a married parent. My child doesn’t need me to be their biological parent. My child needs an UNCONDITIONALLY LOVING PARENT. 𝗡𝗼𝘄 𝗴𝗼 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗦𝗛𝗔𝗥𝗘 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗺𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗴𝗲!

I remember when the only ounces I counted were in the drinks I ordered on Friday night. Now I’m counting ounces for a different reason. More measured… more meaningful. Because every drop is representative of my love… That I’m pouring into her … my child. Nourishing everything she could be and the person she’ll grow to become. Today is the last day of Black Breastfeeding Week, and the message from this mama is as follows: No matter how you choose to feed your child, I hope you cherish this time with them. To those of you out here breastfeeding/chest feeding… I see you and your labor of love! One day we’ll look back and realize that while we were counting ounces we were really making memories … because even now I know these days are numbered. How very beautiful a journey … how very big a blessing. 𝗧𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗷𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘆!

I was told I’d never find happiness living “that lifestyle.” I was told I’d never find true love because “gay relationships don’t last.” I was told I’d never be able to get married because “God meant for marriage to be between a man and a woman.” I was told I was “sacrificing having a family by choosing to date women.” I was told so many lies. So many that I couldn’t even imagine the happy, fulfilled life that I have now. I didn’t believe this life was possible. That I deserved it. That I deserved to be happy. I did. I do. 𝗪𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗱𝗼.

As first-time parents, we wanted to be as prepared as possible going into labor.   Well, as you can imagine, I was worried when my birth plan went out the window. But I never worried that we made the wrong choice in utilizing California @Cryobank’s Cord Blood Advantage (CBA) program through their sister company, CBR (@cordbloodregistry), to preserve Breslyn’s newborn stem cells.   When we were first introduced to the benefit as an expecting #CaliforniaCryobank family that we could get cord blood and cord tissue processing and one year of storage for FREE* AND that the stem cells from the cord blood could potentially be used to help treat certain cancers, blood disorders, and immune disorders, we knew it was the right option for us!   After enrolling through the CBA program, a CBR collection kit was sent directly to our house, and we put it immediately with our hospital bag. When we gave it to our medical team, they knew exactly what to do with it. It was completely painless for both me and Breslyn. We called the courier number on the side of the CBR collection kit box; it was picked up from the hospital; and the kit was transported securely to their facility for indefinite safe storage. We now have such peace of mind knowing we have invested in our family’s future health.

Families will be responsible for annual storage costs after the first year.   #cryobankpartner #cordblood #newbornstemcells #cordbloodbank #cordbloodbanking #familyplanning #lgbtfamily #lgbtqfamily #samesexparents #parentstobe #momlife #lifeasmama #blackmoms #happymother #redefiningmotherhood #twomoms #samesexparents #queerfamily #childbirth #labor #IGmotherhood #givingbirth #expectingmom #birth #honestmotherhood #labour #mommyblogger #birthstory #teamtwomoms
