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.”

Interview With Personal Trainer Elizabeth of Best Of Liz

Me:    Please share with my readers a little about yourself.   Elizabeth: Hi, My name is Elizabeth (but only my dad still calls me by my full name), but most people know me as Liz. I'm a level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and lover of movement in all forms. Our bodies are great tools, and I love exploring what my body can do.    Me: Tell me what inspired you to start your fitness training journey?   Elizabeth: I was super active from a very young age. As soon as I could walk, I was running, and I was really fast!!! Growing up, I used to race all the boys in my neighborhood and win, but my love of movement meant I didn't want to just run, but I wanted to jump, bound, throw, try and succeed in everything. So instead of competing in just one discipline, I trained as a Hephthalite in my teenage years. At 18, I gave it up to focus on my studies, and as I began working to support myself, I ended up tending bars in London's biggest nightclubs, to eventually managing them. The more

Skin Color Doesn't Dictate Love

Written By: Felecia Causey Models:Casey, Tommy, Annelise, Aiyanna, and Alaina Rockwell    In a world where there should not be a boundary when it comes to love. Unfortunately in reality, we live in a place where people have a cap or visual of what and how a person should be or look like. There is also a “norm” of what a family should like.  What so many fail to do is mind the business that pays them. There are so many families that may look different, but their love for each other is as strong as any other family is. When you view from the innocent eyes of a child they don’t see color or see different, they are not aware that people despite their family, all they see in their sweet eyes, is unconditional love. There is no acceptance in their home and around most family members, or friends, but it is a factor in what love should look like in a cruel world where the color of your skin plays a factor in what love should look like. In such a time, where skin color is a very sensitive su
