I thought I would write about this before I run out the door and walk a mile to pick my son up from school (no really...I'm about to leave one hour before to be on time...). I have never seen it written anywhere and today on June 26, 2014 I claim that I came up with the term "co-mommy". From what I have learned so far, bloggers are writers in a community of mothers and women who talk all things important to well "girls!" Aren't we all just little girls wanting to play dress up at heart anyway? :D Anyway, so, just like we have co-workers when we go to work that we have to learn to be nice to and have respect for, the same applies in the blogger community. So just as we have co-workers we have co-mommys. We are all in this imaginary building working together to create a more peaceful community where we are raising our children to be successful and great citizens who contribute to society in a positive way. This blog was inspired by @heleneinbetween on twitter when she said "thank you" in response to a comment I left her. I responded as being her co-mommy and although all of my blogs end with "Sincerely, your Co-Mommy" I realized I could write about how I came up with it and my heartfelt thoughts behind it. I love the hashtag #sharingiscaring which I also use alot, and in the spirit of #sharingiscaring I will provide the link to her blog. :) http://www.heleneinbetween.com/ I will be honest and say I really like her blog and the things she says. I know Im a newbie at this but its nice to read others points of view and know that if we met in person we could be friends. On your blogs you pour your heart out and you really get to know other people as well as them knowing you. Thats how you know you can relate and be friends with certain people. Ok. Here I go for my walk! :D
Your Co-Mommy, signing out!

Have you ever felt like you would rather walk around your house naked and not go anywhere than to keep trying on your own clothes that are just not fitting today. Have you ever felt like you are trying to put on some skinny persons clothes. You're probably asking where your closet went. After all, you did make every purchase yourself. ANYWAY! This is how I feel today. When I pms I feel like I gain 10 pounds. I feel like I need a whole separate closet with bigger sizes. But I neeeeedddd salt during that time! You may only be able to relate if you are an emotional eater, have weight problems yourself or know someone who does. 😭😭😭 (sorry emotional moment there lol) SOOOO, I will drink only water today and make it to Zumba even though my back feels like someone is taking a permanent vacation on my spine. I can complain or I can get to Zumba right? Is anyone an emotional eater? Do you gain a baby in weight when you pms? Please do tell.. how do you cope? What have you done? #sharingiscaring
Much love, your Co-Mommy, Divapinks

So I'm graduating on Sunday and yes.... yes I'm nervous. . O__O Why would I be nervous? I mean it only took me 10 years to get here lol. If you know me you know I'm NEVER done. All my classes are done and I was able to get a job tutoring students after school. After Sunday I'll begin studying for the CBEST which is a California State required set of exams that when completed allow me to be a substitute teacher in any school in California. It will give me a chance to continue to REALLY provide for my son and keep up with his financial need to be in about a hundred extra curricular activities. Ultimately I'd like to be a middle school math teacher. If you knew where I came from you'd know that people raised like me don't make it this far. At least, that's what the expectation is... This is my time to really share what I've been through and let you know that if I did it so can you. The following is a list of blogs that will be posted as I continue on this journey.
-From a trailer, to a modeling contract in Beverly Hills, to a single mom. When you've been to the bottom you don't fear trying anything cause you know if you fail you'll just be back where you started and survived...
-Being a substitute teacher, being a graduate.
-Life as a single mom and how I managed to have the best of both worlds.
-And much, much more.....

Hi everyone! I received flowers from the Bouqs Co. and I couldn't wait to open it up! Below I will allow the photos to speak for themselves but I wish I could have a scratch and sniff because the flowers smelled like a beautiful bottle of perfume. The flowers were safely wrapped for storage and the instructions were very easy. Normally when I buy flowers they die very quickly but these flowers have lasted a few weeks now!! See for yourself and make someone's day! I post what I know and that's that. ;)

Today’s blog is a special one! I found a special woman who I think you would benefit knowing. This woman is a powerhouse of information for your body, mind, and soul. Her name you ask? Dechen Farrow! You can find all the information on her services from the link provided below. I had the choice one day to head to the hospital because of horrible heartburn and nausea that normally leads me to ruptured ulcers bent over in pain, oooorrrrrrrr call dechan! and thats what I did. I went to see her and told her all about my issues and just an hour later I had supplements that literally started to work the moment I took them right after my visit. It took 2 days and I have not had heartburn or stomach swelling for at least 3 months now. The amount of knowledge I received is something I would never get from the doctors I had seen. Also, I should mention that every time I went to the doctor they prescribed chemical filled pills or the usual “take an over the counter medication” as I pay for my visit on the way out. I knew the medicine was just covering up the problem. The supplements I received were provided to me by Dechen after she took the time to listen to my health concerns and symptoms. I will never go anywhere else. I highly recommend that anyone with any health concerns no matter how big or small should consult with Dechen. At the end of the day I had nothing to lose, I had already paid tons of money to the hospitals and doctors who would only cover up the problem and not heal me from within. Good luck to all of you! Please follow the link below to get in touch with this wonderful blessing of a woman!

CALLING ALL MOMS! CALLING ALL DADS! YOU CANNOT LET YOUR KIDS SEE THIS TOP SECRET MESSAGE! BUAAHAHAHAHA...
First of all please be sure you are very aware of your child's food allergies. Next, if you dont have a blender I suggest you run out and buy one. Although it is great to have your kids cook with you there are those stubborn little miracle blessings of children we have that refuse under any circumstances to eat their vegetables. I think you see where this is going... Ok... So which kid does not like spaghetti or pasta???!!! Not any kid I know! So one day I decided to just grab some broccoli, carrots, butternut squash, and zucchini. I recommend more hardy veggies (nothing too watery) (idk like romaine lettuce or something weird haha), anyway, so what you do is stick it in the blender and blend until it is nice and watery (yes you may add a tad of water if needed). REMEMBER, you dont want them to be able to taste it but it will be better than not having it at all. Gradually you will add a tad more until you are comfortable with the taste and amount of veggies. This is a great way to ensure the whole family is eating their veggies. I can tell you myself, my son has never figured out the difference. You can also steam the veggies first and then blend. If you have questions or a cool (sneaky) way that you incorporate veggies please share.
