An Honest Moms Journey through Motherhood

Baby forced me to drive…

Baby forced me to drive…

Atlanta is considered a major city in the South. We have all the fixings of a major metropolis. However, unlike all major cities, Atlanta’s public transit system is considered a joke especially since they have upped the price to 5 bucks for a round trip. They severely cut back services in 2010 just to jack up the price for nothing. Not to mention, a lot of the buses are infested with roaches (especially on the eastside, no exaggeration). I refuse to believe that people have brought them on there. Those roaches know those buses. Their home is mobile…

I am going to be a new mommy at the age of 27.  To be a young black woman without at least one child at this age is not very common. A lot of people start off when they are younger. 27 is a good age though. When I found out that I had a baby on the way, my mind state with a lot of things changed. There are a few bad habits that I had to do without and a few good habits that I gained. I can definitely say that I am not the same woman at 27 that I was at 26. Everything that I think of is “Baby first” and she is still cooking in the womb.

I chilled on getting my driver’s License for the longest. In the state of Georgia, it was proving to be to much for me to earn my driving privileges.  I opted to take the train and walk everywhere I needed to go. As a result, I got into the best shape of my life. When I found out that I was pregnant and that she was coming at the beginning of this Fall, I said that that had to change. I refused to carry my baby on a noisy, roach infested Marta bus. I knew that she deserved better than that. She is pushing me to go harder and take things a step further. My daughter is already changing my life.
