He Will Only Be Little For A While

You want to know how much time has passed, look at your child/children.  The times you are able to hold his small hands in yours or sit in your lap will one day come to an end because he will no longer want to hold mommy’s hand or to be treated like a baby. He will grow up so fast, even to the point that the little boy that you once looked down at will one day be so tall and look down at you. As a nurturer to your son’s emotions, it opens up their heart to help them express their feelings, and to also be mindful of others. 

 A mother knows that although her son will learn to be independent, and with her loving support he will become the young man she would desire her daughter to meet. Parents will make mistakes, because no one is perfect. I believe that my role as a mother has a huge effect on the way my son is raised. We want to be involved in every tiny detail of his life, but at an early age, I had to learn that self-restraint of setting boundaries is very important.

As a parent we are instinctively protective. We want to keep him from getting sick, getting their feelings hurt, and not fail.  I am learning that although I love him, I must not be intrusive.  I once heard one of my favorite actors say, “a mother is a son’s first love”.  I believe that.

You think you have all the time in the world to get all the snuggles, watch cartoons, and get sweet kisses but when “you blink your eyes” they grow up so fast.  The light of your life and the one you would lay your life down for must grow up. We must no longer focus on what we can no longer do with them but look towards the future. As many mothers may live in denial, that your little boy is growing up before her eyes.

As you get a front row seat, of seeing him grow up, you will have in your mind that he is still your precious little baby that you brought home from the hospital. 

A mother will get a slap-in-the-face reminder that she doesn't control time.  It’s hard to remember how fast the first smiles, laughs, crawl, and walk will seem like ages ago. Try to not waste time focusing on bad things but make memories on the joyous milestones. I am an advocate of family taking photos, capturing all the moments will one day be very important. You cannot go back in time so live every day and treasure the moments. 

It will bring you into tears, to think of the amazing young man he will grow to be.

“Mom, cherish now, it goes by so fast. Be sure you soak it in. All you can do is pour love into him so that one day he will walk his own path confidently and securely.  As hard as it is, you will have to let go, as he becomes independent, celebrate, and know you did your best.”

Featuring Tea Town in Montgomery, AL

Written By: Felecia Causey Tea Town is a family-owned restaurant located in Montgomery, AL.  It’s in a great location right off Vaughn Road, close to the AMC movie theater. The first thing that caught my attention was how clean it was.  I enjoyed how peaceful it seemed.  Oh, my goodness, my readers and followers know how important good customer service is to me.  The entire family that was there was so welcoming. I was impressed when they asked if I had any food allergies.  That was very courteous of them.    I wanted to get a little more background of this family.  Just by talking to Buu and Brandi I knew they were aiming to build relationships with their customers. Watching the interactions between them and each person that came through the door, told me that they would treat their customers like family.  It will definitely set them apart from many other restaurants in my book. Phat Trieu and Cam Thai came from Vietnam along with their kids.   They have been cooking for years and

Featuring Interview with Cake Designer Nicole of OKC Cake Lady

Photos Provided By Nicole   Me: Hi Nicole! How did you start your passion for designing cakes and where are you located? Hi! I am located in Oklahoma City Oklahoma. I started working at a grocery store whenever I was 18 years old. I have always been a car Enthusiast and I had a mini truck that I was fixing up as a hobby. The grocery store manager asked if I wanted to work in the bakery to get more hours. Well, more hours equaled more money for my truck, and I kindly took them up on their offer. From there, I started in the bakery, and I absolutely loved it. I could not get enough of getting to create and putting smiles on customers faces. Me: What made you take a leap into starting your own business? I have always loved business. When I walk into other people's stores, I always look for ways to try to improve their store in my head. So, after working in the bakery for years I just knew that I could do this on my own and I would be a lot happier. I knew that being in my own environm
