My Son Turns One


Hello everyone! Happy Sunday 🙂 

I’m taking a break from my Short Story Sunday series so that I can share with you all how we celebrated my sons first birthday. 

As you all may or may not know I struggled with trying to figure out what to do for my son’s first birthday. I am a new Mom and my husband and I found it kinda difficult to come up with something that was appropriate for him and still allowed him to have fun. 

At the very last minute, literally the day before his birthday, we decided to have a small gathering with a few friends and family. That way he can still be comfortable and have a good time. 

So I immediately went into overdrive mode. I had less than 24 hours to make my son’s birthday amazing, even though he may not remember one second from this day. We decided to do an Elmo themed party since that is his favorite character at the time and I had already ordered him a birthday shirt months prior with the bright red character on the front of it. 

Yesterday at his party, my son spent most of the day crying. He cried when people tried to hold him, he even cried when we sang happy birthday to him. By the end of the party he warmed up to everything that was going on and started to enjoy himself. But at the same time I wouldn’t change nothing about that day. 

My son, who I had prayed years and years for was  healthy and celebrating a year of life. I was so happy that I cried tears of joy. Overall his birthday was a success and it taught me a valuable lesson: never wait until the last minute to get things done. Lol. 


Until next time…stay positive

Welcome To My Blog!!

Hello everyone!! My name is LaToya but you all can call me Toya :). This is my first blog every but I have had a passion for writing since I was a little girl. Okay, so a little about me…I am 27 years young (haha), I am married to my wonderful husband of five years and we have a handsome little boy who is turning one at the end of the month. I can not believe that we are about to have a one year old. You would think that I have everything planned for his birthday already, right? But…I don’t, I cant decide what will be perfect enough for our little guy, but more about that later. So yea, as I was saying, I love to write, read, and take pictures. Today I went to the library (I know the library!) and got a few books and have started reading a book by the name of “The Neighbor” by Lisa Gardner. So far so good. I will definitely keep you guys updated with that. With this blog I want to share my life with you guys ( such as my family, being a first time Mom, being young and married, etc) and the little successes and fails that come with my life. I hope to keep you guys entertained enough to keep coming back and reading more. Please comment and like so that I can interact with you guys. I look forward to seeing you in my next post 🙂
