I have no idea what I’m doing!
Hey there! I’m Maria Bonomo but everyone calls me Mia, Mama Mia, Mama, Mimi, Meems…and every other variation of Mia which is cool by me 😉
I am a 28 year old single mom who works 8 to 5 Monday through Friday.
My son is 9 months old. His name is Weston.
I’m here to share my journey with you.
All the failed attempts.
All the things that actually worked.
my passions.my life. my experiences. the good, the bad, and the ugly.
I’m also here to ask for advice. I encourage you to comment, share your stories, and ask me questions!
how I got here:
Two years ago I was a completely different person. I didn’t believe in myself. I was on a self destructive path to, well, SELF DESTRUCTION. I drank a lot, didn’t respect myself and made bad decisions. This isn’t one of those I was bad, now I’m good kinda blogs. I still make mistakes and make bad decisions (they are not as bad now, for example the extent of my bad choices are rear ending a REALLY nice guy while changing the radio or going to bed without doing the dishes). I’m not judging at all, that fun stuff is a really good time. At times I wish I was still there. But if I could go back and taken a different path I would still choose Westie. Long story short (without getting into all the gory details) I got involved with a guy that was in no way ready to have a child and he is pretty much absent from our lives. and I’m OK with that. We rock it out! Hell ya its hard..most nights I only get 2-3 hours with my son but no matter how much my feet ache, my back hurts or I just want to curl up a sleep for days that smile energizes me like 10 million red bulls. “How does she do it?” I’m sure you are asking yourself….My sister. She moved in with me to take care of Westie while I go to work. She is the best Co-parent I could have asked for. Ange is not just Westie’s Aunt, she’s his second mom. I also have such an amazing support system. My parents,family, and friends show me nothing but support and love and I am forever thankful to them for EVERYTHING they do.
This blog is for single, married, happy, sad, HUMANS with children that struggle with the balance of life, work, and parenting but still kick ass at it, and even if you don’t….you’re gonna be OK.
So will I.
Lets do this together.
