Being Harlem’s Mommy

Harlem & Chanel for Kontrol Magazine

Miss Harlem, is almost 2 yrs old. I still can’t believe I’m her mommy. Seems so unreal to me, one day you can be walking with a whole Human in you! And 36-41 weeks later, you’ve taken on a new title as Harlem’s MOMMY!

Becoming a parent, doesn’t come with a manual. You’re literally figuring it on a daily basis.

Being Harlem’s Mommy is more than taking her to the doctor.

Being Harlem’s Mommy is teaching her that interior beauty is more vital than exterior.

Being Harlem’s Mommy is more than providing food, clothes and shelter.

Being Harlem’s Mommy is about putting that big smile on her face.
