Hello Beautiful People,
Today I’m feeling a bit flat (I said flat not fat 😋) sleep deprivation is making the win again! So instead of whining about the perils of non stop parenting, I’m going to overshare about one of my parenting wins 💪🏼
When I was ridiculously young, 16 years old to be exact, I found out I was pregnant. Terrified as hell and feeling like an invincible teenage girl I decided to keep my baby. Yes that’s right I made the decision entirely on my own because it’s my f$&@ing body so it was my choice!
I was met with so much judgement and hostility about my decision, that for the duration of my pregnancy I felt ashamed and embarrassed about myself, my behaviour and my choices. I say my behaviour because it was assumed that I was a s$&t for getting pregnant at that age. Maybe I was maybe I wasn’t either way, again my body, my choice! I’m totally anti-slut shaming! To all the beautiful women out there, I say own your body, feel proud of it, make your own choices for it and always do with it want you want to, as long as it makes you happy!!
Anyway I had the support of my mum and my partner and two weeks after my 17th birthday I gave birth to my amazingly beautiful mini me , Magenta 💖
Despite all the haters, I decided to be the best mother and female role model to her I could be! Having her actually completely saved me from the shitty life choices and path I was taking…….
I threw my heart and soul in to being an awesome mum, yes I sacrificed a lot of myself, partying, travelling etc but I wouldn’t change a thing. Because this beautiful human exists and brightens the world thanks to me.
She’s my best friend, gorgeous, hilarious, successful and just an all round f$&@ing legend really!!
So to all the haters back then being all judgey and shit, you should see my daughter and I now! We both have degrees, careers, good friends, a loving family and a great relationship with each other!
If I ever feel down I look back at how far we’ve come. I look at her beautiful face, and bask in her beautiful soul.
I say f$&k all the haters because even the youngest or oldest Mumma can create a beautiful mini being.
I’m no longer ashamed of me or where I’ve come from. I’m so proud of who we are now, I’d be lost without her. She keeps me young and cool.
TBH I wouldn’t know what things like TBH meant without her. I wouldn’t know tinder existed and be able to laugh with her at jokes about Tinder babies or Snapchat videos. I wouldn’t know that laser hair removal is the in thing and I wouldn’t know that going to the Cas (Casino) at the end of a night out clubbing is all the rage…. (F$&k did I just say all the rage?! Now I’m showing my age! She’s going to rip in to me about that expression, I can already see her cheeky face poking fun and laughing at me ☺️)
So today I’m grateful for and sending a big shout out to my first born Princess, Queen in the making, my saviour and gangster baby, Magenta 💖
Thank you for blessing me by being one of my beautiful people ❤️💖👊🏼
